Bandcamp. If you've heard of it you'll know why we are using it! If you've not heard of it you'll thank us for telling you!

Can you imagine a website where bands can upload full resolution audio files (.aiff) and you can chose what type of format your download is, and there's a minimum of third party overheads reducing the band's income.

Imagine no more because that's what Bandcamp is. By starting with the highest possible quality source, they’re able to convert our tracks into a bunch of different format and quality combinations for you to listen to, including MP3 (320, VBR V0), Ogg Vorbis, Apple Lossless, FLAC and AAC (aka .m4a or iTunes store format)

You can see why we have chosen bandcamp as our supply partner for our downloads.

Having said that In the days of our demo recordings the facilities available to up-coming bands were rather basic compared to this century!

The demo tracks were mostly recorded on a cassette based "portastudio" or in some cases directly off the sound desk at gigs but this also imbues the tracks with a certain 'patina', which given their 30+ years age is quite fitting, so please understand that these are not modern recording studio quality. We're currently leaving the tracks open for streaming so you can hear what you are getting before buying!

Previously available as part of the now sold out "Mythopoeia" cd rom released 2002 and later on an mp3 album, these tracks are the original demos recorded at the rehearsal  , the ones that lead to the band being signed by EMI and the subsequent release of that album.

The grandiose plans for a double album were tempered by the record company executives along with the imperative for the snappy radio play oriented material...these demo tracks hint at what could have been. In those days the facilities available to up-coming bands were rather basic compared to this century, the tracks were mostly recorded on a cassette based "portastudio" or in some cases directly off the sound desk at gigs but this also imbues the tracks with a certain 'patina', which given their 30+ years age is quite fitting, so please understand that these are not recording studio quality. Stream a track ot two before buying!

The original cassettes were transferred to digital as aiff files so now they can be downloaded at a better quality than the previously available mp3s from 11 years ago. We have also added some additional tracks from that period which had not been featured on previous releases.

EP1

1. Reds Under The Beds 04:39 
2. Thought Police 04:14
3. CUUK 03:58
4. Wilmot Dovehouse MP

On 16 December 1977 when the band recorded the first piece of plastic to bear the name PALLAS. "The PALLAS EP" was recorded at Craighall Studios, Edinburgh. The tracks comprised "Reds under the Beds", "Wilmot", "Thought Police" and "C.U.U.K." This must be a true collectors item, only 700 being sold and many became ashtrays in their old age. The EP was released in February 1978. We have digitised the EP for download - listen and marvel at what was to develop from these foundations!

We recently uncovered the rough mixes of The Sentinel which the band took away with them from the Eddy Offord's studio in Atlanta, which gives another insight into what the LP could have been had fate not intervened.


During the last few days before the band left the Studio in Atlanta Eddy Offord sat at the sound desk with them and made a rough mix of the album - which can be compared and contrasted with the two mixes that were later released.


It is well known that the band and record company were not happy with the final mix, which had been rushed to accommodate a new project Eddy was hired for by a band with considerable more clout than they had, and a remix was made for the later american release.
