CGE 2014 Aftermath

Written by Aidy.

Well I'm now back in the UK after a couple of weeks of knocking about in Vegas and performing a few songs at CGE 2014. It was an awesome couple of weeks and I met some great people especially the other bands, 8 Bit Weapon and Evil Wezil who I spent a fair bit of time chatting to between sets. It was great to catch up with everyone and it was the first time I'd actually seen all three of the Retrogaming Roundup guys in the same room!

The Retrogaming Roundup guys actually took over the expo this year and did a great job running the whole thing. Apparently this was the highest attendance to date. There was so much to see and do including talks from various alumni, documentaries and movies being shown all day and an awesome arcade that was open until midnight each day. I'm planning on going back again next year as a punter so I can enjoy the whole thing and see more of it.

Next up. Play Expo!

There's never been a better time to purchase our début album that right now! I've just curated a Groupees bundle, along with the lovely people at, featuring our album and a selection of video games. You'll even get a couple of our music videos an unreleased demo from my upcoming solo album, Lunar Panda Deluxe and loads more for the bargain price of $3. This bundle is only available for a limited time, so hurry!

An Afternoon with the Oliver Twins

Written by Aidy.

Pretty excited about this! I've managed to persuade the Oliver Twins to come down to The Centre for Computing History in Cambridge to do a little talk about everything from Dizzy Egg up to their current endeavours with Radiant Worlds. So make sure you're there, it'll be a great afternoon and we'll have the majority of their games available to play. So if you've got questions you want to ask or games you want signed then come along. There's a chance they may even be able to talk about the new game they're currently working on by then.

It'll be taking place at 3pm on Saturday 26th July. Tickets are a mere £7 and all profits go to the museum.


Psychopaths Dream in Black & White

Written by Aidy.

So I'm back at Half Ton Studios once again and working on a little solo album with the working title 'Pyschopaths Dream in Black and White'. It's been a while since I wrote the original material that ended up on the British IBM album. Over two years in fact. I've since written a shed load of new songs that are in various states of completion on my iPhone's voice recorder and scribbled on bits of paper all over my house and I'm now starting to do something with them.

Some of the new stuff will ultimately end up on the "elusive second album" but in the interim I'm working on some of the other material. Here's a little demo of one of the tracks I'll be working on called 'All The Time'.
