Muzzle - Live at the Icehouse
Band lineup for this recording was:
- Frank - guitar, vocals
- Dunny - lead guitar
- Warren Meadows - drums
- Me - bass, occasional live backing vocals
Warren and I were about 15/16 when this was recorded. Frank was about 19 and Dunny more like 20? They seemed so incredibly grown up to me at that age! We had a lot of fun, did 3 gigs, but it fizzled out sadly.
Music was so full of wonder, possibility and energy at this age, I am so grateful to have been in this band and had those experiences.

The sleeve for this tape:
The last track was Frank playing keyboards into Cakewalk Pro (cwp30.exe!) and I sort of produced it. I’d have bitten your hand off if you’d offered me a 4 track cassette recorder back then - I thought MIDI was lame, but looking back, it was really cool to be able to sequence music! It was frustrating though that I couldn’t record audio (save a few short samples, of which only one could be played at a time).

My early attempts at graphic design included trying to make a Muzzle logo:

Old artwork I made:
I “remixed” a bunch of Muzzle songs as my In Perpetuum project. I say “remixed”, really I mean “covered”!
