Shift: Drums & Scratch in the vaultPosted: June 21, 2021 09:05:43 by ANDERS JAKOBSON
The other week I found a box of CD-R's and DVD-R's with some different stuff on them. One actually had some scribblings on it and I realised that it was a "work in progress" CD from the recording of "Shift", with the drums and a scratch guitar.
As I started to listen to it I discovered not only one or two but THREE unifinished songs from the session, which made this a perfect addition to The Rare Nasum project. Of the 33 songs recorded for the session, I picked out a total of 10 including the three unifinished songs and made a digital album at Bandcamp.
Accompanying notes are available for your reading pleasure here at nasum.com.
I have loads of interesting stuff boxed up and every little dollar or EURO from each purchase of The Rare Nasum stuff is put aside and will sponsor a THOROUGH vault excavation after the summer. So loads of stuff will be added, most of it totally for free.
The vault has been updatedPosted: June 3, 2021 13:46:27 by ANDERS JAKOBSON
In case you have missed it, The Nasum Vault is where I collect different things from the years, be it exclusive audio recordings, videoclips, artwork or some written stuff.
Today the vault has been updated with some of the latter. I begun when I searched for something else over at Archive.org where snapshots of webpages are collected in the Wayback Machine. Some how I checked out the earliest snapshots of nasum.com and found some stuff that I had forgotten we had there.
To start, I found a tour diary from 2000 when we toured Europe for seven weeks with Napalm Death. That was from the time of the "Human 2.0" album and I also found a bunch of reviews that were fun to read. With those in place I had some "Human 2.0" related material and decided to add the liner notes from the 2014 LP reissue to the vault.
As I continued going forward in time in the Wayback Machine I found another tour diary, this time from 2003 when we did a shorter thing in Finland with Rotten Sound. That was quite a fun read.
This might not be as exciting as a rehearsal with unreleased stuff but it still fun stuff from the past that I wanted to add in the vault. With that said, I can tease that I plan to do a focused and thorough excavtion of the vault this coming fall. That might bring the really exciting stuff to light...
