Hi guys

Does anyone maybe knows how to play or download the songs here:

https://myspace.com/ackackus/music/songs ? :roll:

I just can't figure it out..
I tried the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, but none of the songs will play.

¡Ack-Ack! were a New Wave band from Illinois and I would really like to hear those songs, please help if you can :|

OK - don't beat yourself up over it, I couldn't do it either. Went digging and found this page:

https://help.myspace.com/hc/en-us/artic ... intenance-

where myspace basically says that some old songs can't be played.

And a reddit page has someone emailing support, and getting this:

"There is an issue with all songs/videos uploaded over 3 years ago. We are aware of the issue and I have been informed the issue will be fixed, however, there is no exact time frame for when this will be completed. Until this is resolved the option to download is not available. I apologize for the inconvenience this may be causing."


Also...at some point, I got several of their MP3s (from Another Face and Automatic singles). Not Radio Bombay. Do you want me to post them?

Hi musfan

Thank you for replying to me! :)

Yes, please upload Automatic single.
I found on YT Another Face and Look The Other Way.
Well I guess Radio Bombay and The Art Of Tyranny will just have to wait for a while until they hopefully fix this issue..

PaL - I'm pretty sure I got these from a blog poster, my gut says it probably is someone who posts on this site, but I'm not 100% sure.

Here's all 5 songs:

Hello Qbertqubes

Thank you for this info! :)

I see they made much more songs than what they released,
and it's truly a shame we cannot hear them all somewhere.. :|



Anyway, I thank you both once again :wink:

As per Henry D Frayne of Ack-Ack, they found most of the master tapes of songs released. So, they are mastering them as quickly as can and will get them out into the world before we know it!
