    Need some good old-fashioned tapey goodness? This is what you're after. A lovingly hand-dubbed cassette of the Atlantean Night Tourists album. Leave it lying around at work so people know how damn special you are, that you have a piece of plastic-y art that Bing Turkby prepared just for you!
    Limited to 50 copies universe-wide. The master .wav files will be smashed afterwards and incinerated, so no more can ever be made. OMG, how much more special could it get than that?
    Well, you could always buy a copy of The Musomancer book (below) and ask Bing to sign it for you I suppose. Whoah, if you did that, people would know you were the very tippest of the top in your local community.

    The story:
    A guitarist dies, after writing the best riff of his life. As far as the Police are concerned, the death appears to be due to natural causes. But to Jareth McHendry, it is the sinister work of an evil Musomancer, and the start of a powerful spell that will ruin mankind.
    Is Jareth a deluded eccentric, or is he the only person standing between humanity and catastrophic devastation? Can he track down the evil Musomancer?And if he does, will he be able to keep his guitar in tune long enough to save the world?

about

Based on a true story, this may sound familiar to many guitar-obsessed people out there!

lyrics

She talked about politics, I talked about guitars
She was studying medicine, I talked about guitars
She studied at university
Talked with people who were cleverer than me
She had a really good conversation but I talked about guitars
Yes I talked about guitars

Could have talked about something else but I didn't
Could have listened to what she said but I didn't

She tried to talk about capitalism
She tried to talk about terrorism
She tried to talk about religious schism
But I talked about guitars
Yes I just talked about guitars
Solo!

She talked about bakery, I talked about guitars
We went to the movies, I talked about guitars

Then when her uncle passed away
He left a Gibson for her to play

Now she talks about Les Pauls
Won't say anything else at all
Won't hear a word about Telecasters
But we both talk about guitars
Yes we both talk about guitars
