Special thanks to Geert-Jan Hobijn and Frans de Waard for their years of support. Jeff Cortazzo (trombone), Sue Wolf (cello), Michael Prime (shortwave), Geoff Fontaine (voice), Gretchen Wells, Matt Guerierri, Scott Shell. "Merely" recorded live at DePaul University, 1991 -- Carrie Biolo (percussion). Remastered in 2012, Steamroom Tokyo. This one is for Billy F. Available only in this format. "Whether or not you want to hear the melodies here as memories -- of humanity? of earth? of a simpler past? -- desperately trying to push through into the mix, they certainly do produce an uncanny effect. And that's very much to O'Rourke's credit. Old News #8 is an engaging, powerful listen. And besides, there's much more to this record than the found sounds anyway. This is another excellent release in an excellent series." --Tiny Mix Tapes
