about

1980s rock, pop, indie

No history of the Ayrshire music scene would be complete without a nod to Bob Wyper. Although a performer of some note himself it was his entrepreneurial bent that stood him apart. In a community deeply risk-averse to the arts Bob would throw aside caution and have a go.

In 1984 he put out the Overtone albums, a series of compilation records which were recorded in our studio. Pulling such a thing together in itself is no small feat and is deserving of credit. To do so and produce half decent work is praise-worthy indeed. Even the production on these tracks, with their quasi-demo character, is respectable given each song would have been recorded and mixed in little more than a couple of hours.

The selection here is taken from the four Overtone releases and is reflective of a huge talent pool of bands working in Scotland at the time. The entrepreneirial talent was always far thinner on the ground beyond the rare occasion such as this compilation.

The recordings are from a private collection and are for streaming only.
