tycho live 1995 - from the trans:com archives

The good folks over at Brisbane's Trans:Com have kindly uploaded to Youtube a very early Tycho gig - at the Orient Hotel, 7th July 1995...that's right, over 17 years ago! This was our third ever gig, in our early 2 piece incarnation, only 12 weeks after our live debut, and more than 18 months before Stephen Birt joined us on drums.
These were scary times - equipment was mostly very cheap and/or somewhat unreliable, and samplers had to be loaded from floppy discs (remember those?) between songs. A classic early Tycho set, including stuff like "Marianne", "Seventeen", and "Sentence"...the occasion being the launch of the Joy Division "best of" CD, Permanent. Hence the inclusion, for the first time, of our Joy Division cover, "Atmosphere".

tycho brahe online store

Tycho Brahe's very own online store is now up and running! This store makes available the merchandise which was until now typically only for sale at live shows - T-shirts, drink coasters, fridge magnets, whatever...as well as CD releases!

The store will gradually be ramped up to include all Tycho Brahe CD releases, but right now, it is the single best place on the 'net to purchase the brand new SEX ROCKET single, and all associated merchandise.

The single, presented in a beautiful digipak designed by Denmark's Stig Olsen (known for his design work with The Human League) features the original version of Sex Rocket, plus an old school 12 inch mix, plus remixes by a host of synthpop royalty, including Neuropa, Parralox, Dave Foreman (Tankt) and Psyche!

Sex Rocket T-shirts and PVC drink coasters are also available to purchase both individually, and in special package deals with the single. And if you want, you can even have the CD signed :-)

The Tycho Brahe Online Store accepts Paypal, Visa and Mastercard, and we will happily post anywhere in the world.

And as if that wasn't enough - Sex Rocket is now also available in mp3 and CD format from CD Baby, and also on iTunes - as the song says, "Sex Rocket - until U satisfied!"
