Great stuff! Glad this is something that seems to have 'form', here.

Where are the tracks?

Sure! Here they are:

If you're interested in how the original recordings sound like, I can upload them somewhere too.

I've been thinking the same thing. Last night, I was debating whether to force out new songs I don't have, or rework some old RPM songs... sort of like a remix album.

Do remix albums count as an RPM entry?

To my mind, there are no true hard and fast rules other than, "Don't get Dave sued."
I say, go for the remix.

My 2017 RPM effort featured about 4 tracks that started out as music for an ill-fated project with a tempestuous and possibly mentally ill vocalist, I pulled out the vocals and reimagined/rearranged/filled in with synths and made them into something new to 'reclaim' my work from the pits of hell... so ... yeah. Go for it.

Thanks. I probably could have worded that a bit more subtly. I did think afterwards to ask to also hear the originals, but thought I'd wait to see if you were open to sharing.

Will check them all out.

Digging 'Run'. Giving me nostalgic vibes going back to the late 80's/early 90's 'Madchester' scene.

Curious to hear the original.

Thanks! I was going for late 80's/early 90's Shoegaze, but I'll take Madchester! I'll PM you the original jam recordings.
I'll go listen to some Happy Mondays now...

Actually, I was thinking more of 'Stone Roses', but shoe-gazy does it.

It is well known that Eno still has hundreds of hours of unused tape in his private library and, as outlined in the book 'More Dark Than Shark', the making of records such as On Land (EG 1982) involved feeding unheard tape into the mix, constant feeding and remixing, subtracting and "composting". In reality no-one will ever fully understand Eno's methods of working in the studio and how they produce results. As he says himself in the letter with regard to 1983's Apollo: Soundtracks (EG): "...so many processings and reprocessings - it's a bit like making soup from the leftovers of the day before, which in turn was made from leftovers..."

Hey, if it's good enough for Eno , it's fine by me!
