"March of the Mustard King" Official Video

20 years ago this month I released an album's worth of computer music. If you weren't one of the lucky 3 people who got a CD, this is what you missed. Last night I made an *official video* for the song "March of the Mustard King." This was pre-Garage Band. Back when making songs on a computer was like watching the code of the Matrix scroll by. Music by nerd(s), for nerds.

Buy the Album on Bandcamp

This album is only available as a digital release. You can buy it through Bandcamp for a measly three bucks or, if you are a cheapskate who doesn't want independent creators to thrive, just download it for free. I'm not judging.

P133 Front CoverWith the demise of Drop.io I have had to find a new place to offer MP3s of my musical project, Martian Law. In the process, I have rearranged the site a bit and given all my releases their own pages: The Exciting Sounds of a Compaq P133 and Upgrade Downgrade. I have also added a new track for download from the 2002's Lumpenwave 80s cover compilation.

Upgrade Downgrade

My first pure-computer music CD, The Exciting Sounds of a Compaq P133, was followed by a four-song EP entitled, Upgrade Downgrade. For these songs I had a much better handle on the technology and thus the sound is much more clean. I never really had an official release’with covers and all’for this batch of tracks. I tended to burn them as bonus tracks when ever I gave someone a copy of P133. So, consider this the belated debut. Again, I have made high quality MP3s out of all four tracks and they are available here for download. Download the entire Upgrade Downgrade EP by clicking here!

The Exciting Sounds of a Compaq P133

I have always liked to create music on computers. Back in the Apple ][+ days I made quite a few annoying musical ditties with The Music Construction Set and this continued into the Apple ][gs days. My software was never really sophisticated enough until I discovered tracking and mods when I upgraded to Windows 95. After a few years of noodling around, I finally had enough material to release a CDs worth of my electronic music, The Exciting Sounds of a Compaq P133. This disc was comprised of my first purely digital (no more cassette 4-track recording!) musical compositions. The sound is a…

For those of you who don't know, I like to make music with my computer and have done so in one form or another since the days of The Music Construction Set on my old Apple ][+. In the mid-Nineties I began compiling my solo musical output under the moniker, Martian Law. The first record I produced was actually a cassette tape that I gave away as a bonus to people who bought one of my wood engravings. In hindsight, this tape is pretty embarrassing, but it did contain a few numbers that I still can appreciate.

In 1999 I followed my debut with my first full-length CD release, The Exciting Sounds of a Compaq P133. This disc was comprised of my first purely digital (no more cassette 4-track recording!) musical compositions. The sound is a little rough due to the primitive, non-pro software I used…
