During these troubled times, I hope this post will be a slight distraction to what is sadly going on around us!

As promised, here is a collection of Secession Demos that were not included on the recent Peter Thomson release 2001 “I’m Afraid Of Getting Old”. To my knowledge, these tracks were only recorded on standard cassettes and no master tapes exist.

Keeping that in mind, I did not attempt to de-hiss or restore any of the tracks in fear that it would take away from the original recordings. The only edits I did was cue / fade out and Re-EQ all the tracks.

Being a huge Secession fan, these tracks are truly a must have in my collection! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Ps: I also included a few of my favourite Secession pics!

I will leave the link up for one week!
