about

Demo and lofi cassette recordings from Martin Kennedy, writer and guitarist with All India Radio & Kilbey/Kennedy. Desert Tapes 1984 - 1994 consists of soundscapes, tape manipulations and electronic doodles from the early 1980’s to the mid 1990’s. Most of these songs were originally recorded on reel to reel and cassette tapes and were mastered from those same tapes, complete with hiss, pops, dropouts and dodgy editing. I have restored them where possible but many of the blemishes remain audible.

**Please note: some of you might already have an earlier version of this album. It was originally released under the title 'Destroy all Demos' by Martin L Kennedy with different artwork a few years ago. For this new version I have dropped a few tracks which I deemed of too poor sound quality and composition and have remastered some of the more sonically troublesome tracks.
