The End-All Urgh! (A Work In Progress)

First things first – RIP Lux Interior…

Now, onto the business, and this business was much, much delayed. In April of 2006 I put up the soundtrack Urgh! to much fanfare around the blogosphere (God I hate that “word”) so much so that I had to get a server upgrade. Unfortunately, as it was pointed out to me several months ago those files were recorded on a turntable that spun too fucking fast. Since then I had been meaning to re-record the tracks and repost them, but life can be a bitch.

Well, I was finally motivated to get off my ass and fix my mistake (for reasons that I will get into momentarily) and now I present to you the newly re-recorded version of Urgh! A Music War – The Album, now at the correct speed and with added hiss and click removal!

As many of you may know, the original soundtrack to Urgh! didn’t have everything on it that was on the movie. I originally had some of those tracks on here, ripped from a copy of the movie I rented at my local video store. I was never happy with the quality of those recordings either, so I am going to re-record them as well. Now, I’m sure you’re thinking, “what video store still has a copy of Urgh!?” Well, sadly the answer is “none” because the awesome Head’s Together video store is going out of business at the end of the month and they are liquidating their amazing inventory of classic, cult and just plain bizarre movies. I’ve already bought a ton of great shit, from the strange 80s slasher flick The Burning to Style Wars and a VHS copy of The Punk Rock Movie.

Oh, and I also bought Urgh!


I’m in the process of getting my VCR hooked up to my computer and running correctly, but once I do I’m going to do what I can to not only have the audio tracks from the VHS online, but the whole goddamn movie.

You’re welcome.
