Last month, Tim Wright aka. CoLD SToRAGE regaled us with talk of his new album - STRIX MEMORIA ? - a celebration of all things Psygnosis and Commodore AMIGA. His latest release is special in many ways, not least of all in that it will be Wright's first physical album, and is a collection of his early work on Psygnosis AMIGA Games re-imagined from 8 bits and 4 channels into lovingly crafted full CD Audio works.
In response to several e-mail and Facebook requests, Wright tells us that pre-orders have now been extended for another two weeks giving people until Valentines Day ( February 14th 2013 ) to order this one-of-a-kind collectors item.
This limited edition album is supplied in a metal tin featuring a laser etched Psygnosis 'Owl' logo . The tin contains a custom-shaped colour Psygnosis 'Owl' head 4Gb Memory Stick (re-usable). Each tin is individually numbered and comes complete with an 8 page circular fan-fold colour brochure.
Wright has also confirmed that one lucky person (chosen at random) will receive an additional USB stick containing over 400 music tracks in 52 folders, amounting to over 8Gb of lossless audio files from his own personal compositional library - some of which are unreleased works.
“Demand for the album has been great so far, but we couldn't understand why orders weren't tallying up with the interest... it didn't take us long to realise that people are quite frankly 'spent-up' after Christmas and New Year. So we do have people itching to order, but they are twiddling their thumbs until payday.
To give people a little more time to order we've pushed back the closing date by a couple of weeks, and what better day than Valentine's Day? Who knows... this album might be a great gift for anyone whose eyes moisten a little with a rosy glow at the mention of Psygnosis or their classic Amiga Games?
We'll be posting out extra audio demos over the coming week too, as I know many people are keen to hear more tracks before they buy.”
STRIX MEMORIA ? is available on pre-order up until the 14th February 2013.
Orders are being taken Worldwide, and delivery is by a Royal Mail / Air Mail.
