FatNicK Reviews Stuff: Bits and Pieces A History of Chiptunes

I’m pretty surprised that its taken me so long to get round to reading this book myself, to be honest, but here it is: A quick review at Kenneth McAlpine’s scholarly examination of the history of chiptunes. I suppose the first thing that needs to Read More ...

Music Review: Wiwi Jumbo

    This was originally written for the lovely peeps over at gametripper.co.uk. So why not give them a visit as well?         I feel a bit of a fraud writing this. I wish I could say that Wiwi Jumbo was a track Read More ...
