Epicycle (School Girls / Residential Area Single)

   Epicycle were a Chicago area four piece that originally formed in 1979 and were only around a year or so. During that span they released two Ep's, this single, and a full length all on the Cirkle Records Label which was founded by front man Andrew (Ellis Clark). The band reformed around 1998 with new members; they released three full lengths before calling it quits again in 2008. Even though the sleeve suggests Residential Area is the A side of the single, the vinyl and label have it as the B side, so that's what I went with.
   On a side note I have a new tube preamp and I've been experimenting with Audacity; trying out some new editing techniques. I recently realized my recordings have allot of clipping. Even though the overall volume of this recording may be slightly lower than my usual recordings; I think it's better quality. If it's not too much trouble; I would like to know what you think?

Excellent-sounding recording. Less clipping is the way to go.

Thanks Dan, I appreciate the comment; I'm always trying to improve the quality of my recordings. I used to be obsessed with loud recordings but I've come to realize that louder isn't always better.
Erika, Give me a little time and I'll re-post the Dead Wretched for you. I never posted the Flys Ep, you must be thinking of another blog.
