Shameless self promotion...

The Projectiles Greatest "Hits" & "Sh*ts
Friends, I've decided on this rather boring Independence Day, to post what is a "compilation" if you will, of The Projectiles "recordings" from about 1984 to 1986. These were all real ameteur affairs. A four track reel to reel with a couple of mikes hooked up to it in the basement, a boom box in the middle of a get the picture. But I must say, it's not half bad for a bunch of bootleg style cuts. This pretty much gives you a snapshot of what we were doing back then. Truly haphazard recording techniques, and delivery as well. Friends, there is nothing professional about any of this. We were all 20 somethings trying to be the next big thing in Rochester, and competing with about 2 dozen other "garage" bands, as well as The Chesterfield Kings. I definitely had the best times of my life these two years. We went on for about another five or six years into 1992, when we called it quits. We had a reunion gig in a blizzard in 2005, and just recently reunited last March for WITR's "Whole Lotta Shakin'" radio show's 25th anniversary. That night felt like the "old days" and we were on top of our game like we never were before. We'll be doing it again in November and we're also considering playing more shows in and out of town. Meanwhile, enjoy this little slice of noise.
Cheers! Dan

  1. I d/l both parts. Disc 2 worked fine. RAR keeps telling me that a file is damaged in disc one so I can't unzip the file? Any idea what's wrong?
    I like what I hear on disc 2. hotrodmike

  2. Same goes for me as well with disc one.
    I got a lot of this stuff on old comps but its amazing how much I missed. Thanks.
