Got Soul? Testube re-issues 20 year old demo

Filed Under:
Soul Reissue

Most of you who have been a fan of Testube for a few years know the Second Soul album pretty well. But did you know that there was actually a first "Soul" release that came before that? Back in 1996, when I was first learning the in's and out's of my Alesis QS+, and wrestling with my band name a bit, I sent out a limited number of demo cassettes titled Soul. This collection of mid-tempo instrumentals was never sold, but rather used as a promo tool, and paved the way for the sound of the Second Soul album released shortly thereafter. Thanks to a flood of recent interest in my old tunes on Youtube, I decided to dig these recordings out of the vault (actually storage) and make them available again. I even found the original black and white photo that was used for the album cover, and re-scanned it in. The tracks got a little clean-up and some minor remastering, and I hope you dig the results. Twenty years later, I am pleased to present the original Testube demo titled Soul! It is available via my Bandcamp page and will be added to all of the usual online shops (Amazon, iTunes, etc.) very soon!
