    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

My memory is terrible. Sometimes I see an old photo, or hear a story about my younger days, and I think "Really? Did I do that, or was it someone else?" Still, there are a few things I do remember: meeting my missus, the first cat we had as a pet, the matching coats my gran made for me and my brother when we were little. Accordingly, this is one of the only Bing Turkby songs ever to feature actual, not-made-up things. Or... is it? Maybe I'm not remembering correctly.

lyrics

Have some pie, at the table
Reach for the photo box
Look at the faces

Chorus:
Stolen memories, or are they mine?
Forgotten melodies, sung out of time

I try to anchor time and place
To a name and to a face
But it's just too much
Too much to remember

Chorus

I remember when we met
I remember my first pet
I remember matching coats
The old farm and the crazy goat

Chorus
