Gimpy Video Game Music Vol 1

Written by Aidy.

You may or may not already know this but one of my little side projects is writing video games with a couple of friends: Dean Edis and Jose Cubero over at Gimpy Software. As a bit of a spin off of that I've put together a compilation of 11 Royalty Free pieces of music for video games. From quirky 8 bit/chiptune loops to orchestral and atmospheric synth based themes and melodies.

We've released these as a Game Maker Asset which you can purchase over at the Game Maker Marketplace here:

So there you go! If you're an indie game dev and you're currently using GameMaker then check it out.


AlexFest - 4th July 2015

Written by Aidy.

This was originally going to be just Dave and myself doing a stripped back acoustic set but Paul became available at the last minute and we ended up playing as a full band, which was cool. AlexFest is a new-ish mini festival type type thing hosted at The Alex in Cambridge. The organisation was a bit ramshackle, had some people turn up to watch us at The Alex, unaware of the second stage which was in a car park across the road where half the bands and ourselves played. Was a fun gig though and was great to finally see Too Cool Kid play.

Next up we're playing a free gig at The Corner House, Cambridge on Saturday 25th July 2015.

BBC Introducing Cambridge 4th July 2015

Written by Aidy.

Was great to be invited back to do another BBC Introducing session with Tom Simkins, he actually gave us a trophy the first time we ever played to commemorate the fact that we were the last ever Thursday Guests. I still have that trophy five years later!

This time it was just me as Paul and Dave were busy. I played Mikie and I'm Just Like You from the upcoming album Psychopaths Dream in Black and White and chatted with Tom about recording the new album and getting back to gigging again.
