Notes

All tracks written and arranged on a Commodore 64.
Original artwork hacked with respect from Eagle Soft Inc.

A5 is a data track which can be viewed by recording it to a cassette and then running it with a C64.
B5 sounds like a remix of the data track.

This is one for all of you who remember the great works of Tim Follin and Rob Hubbard, composers of game music for the C64 Computer.

Somewhat similar but mainly Electro, breaks and Acid style music. All of it uses the humble C64's SID music chip to create all the music you hear.

My favourite is (Would you understand) beauty of the beats, which sounds a lot like the sound track to an old Amiga PD game called Poing.

The two untitled tracks are a data track on side A (possibly similar to Rikos records info on LCP remixes) and
a short remix of the data track on side B which is interesting.

I discovered Tero's style while listening to Little Computer People - LCP Remixes, where his one can be easily found. I was surprised to hear the old-fashioned voice of C64. And...it was nice in couple with LCP's theme and the vocoders.
So I dicieded to find his own release 'Cracker's Revenge', which surprised me again. A lot of ideas... I adore the first track. Esp. the beginning. The rest is wonderful too. The track 'untitled' is Tero's experiment with noise-style. Sounds like Merzbow's best ones... (I can't hear...xcuse me)
Conclusion:
Like electro? Played primitive video games in the childhood? If you say 'Yes!', then you must have this one...
