After the downfall of Megaupload I’ve had to re-upload all of the previously uploaded Master Scratch Tapes that I have Cleaned and Remastered. Plus I have finally finished what was left from the NG83 community. I would like to send a special thanks to all who have contributed to providing the source material for this project especially to Phil Littlechild for keeping it real with the Pie.N.Ears Blog and uploading help etc…
You can now find all of our hard work here at Pie.N.Ears

Psy Tek has put alot of hard work into cleaning up the 28 year old MasterScratch tapes from Nottinghams Rock City days. Anyone who has tried to convert old tapes from the 80s or 90s to mp3 knows what quality to expect, with a lot of hard work and effort , its possible to get them sounding as new.
Here are his latest volumes of the cleaned up versions.
Both sides of the tapes are in one zip file.
PsyTek (John Davies of HOC Sound System and hands on recordings) has used his 10 years of knowledge and studio experience to clean up the Master Scratch tapes. These tapes are over 28 years old and PsyTek makes them sound like you just bought them from HMV as CD’s.
The work gone into these is no different from cleaning up a film to convert it to HD, by stopping every time to hear a hiss or pop, taking out the offending sound Much respek PsyTek, keep up the good work!
Here is where you can download the finished products: The PsyTek Projest
