Secession - Radioland (UK 12 Inch / 1987)




01 Radioland 4:24
02 Simon Says...6:16
03 Everybody's Sneakin' 4:41






Just kicking this one out as I had already finished it a bit ago. Another addition to the Secession posts. I have one more left to post, the big 'Sneakyville' 12 inch. I'm waiting to get the artwork for it so you won't have to settle on the low grade discogs version. Here's a link for more information.  Enjoy this for now!

    1. Thanks! If I can upgrade my recordings to fully capture FLAC, and also understand the mechanics of it, then I would. I'd probably need to have a better file share site. My only issue with FLAC or Lossless, is the fact that everyone is a stereo snob with how things 'should' be done. I don't want to deal with that until I fully get the lowdown from someone who fully gets it and can relate it to me (a regular music fan with moderate background in recording)! Thanks for the comment!

      lol ... always the same debate! By definition, the sound quality of a FLAC file is better, simply because they are a compressed version of the original wave file, while in MP3 compression, they also remove the parts of the song that should not be perceivable by the human ear (frequencies below 20 Hz and above 20K Hz).

      You can only hear the difference between the two files, if
      a) you play them on high end equipment
      b) the original recording is superior quality, e.g. a Pink Floyd recording or a digital recording of Mozart. I doubt you will hear the difference in a Punk/Indie recording, regardless of your equipment. I noticed that Napalm Death sounds exactly the same, no matter what the compression ... lol

      The downside to FLAC is the obviously much larger file size and, more importantly, the lack of universal use. MP3 files can be played back by virtually all dvices, while FLAC can't.

      In my opinion, FLAC files are only worth it for your absolutely most favorite recordings!

      So, I hope you keep it 320!

      ;-D

      oh, and in regards to "upgrading to FLAC', that's impossible. FLAC conversion will not add the lost frequencies back in. The only true FLAC recording is directly from the source.

    4. Thanks Faith Healer. I realize that regarding FLAC. I'd have to go back in a re-record everything. :)

      like I said, I doubt it's worth it for this kind of music. I have a few FLAC recordings of my favorite classical albums and stuff like Pink Floyd - Wish you were here, where you can really truly appreciate the difference ...

      ... but I will lose this battle with all FLAC lovers .... lol ... it's like arguing about remastered albums or religion ... all the same!

      ;-D

    1. Thanks for the interest. I won't be re-recording anything at this time in FLAC. Perhaps in the future.

    Delusions Of Grandeur is one of my all time favorite electronica albums... here is the full Hardkiss discography: https://fs-cache-1.filestream.me/stream/5752fce6e4b08b1676cd3ece?st=GD0Jj3x56HGUUgUqROKcuQ&e=1465663037&u=wnux0AUq6z44yRoh5Znl

      I love Rabbit In The Moon even more, such an interesting alternative to straight electronica.
