'Loading...' EP artwork
The ‘Loading…’ EP represents the birth of the 1201_Alarm project, cataloguing the move from just a few ad hoc laser harp gigs with Steve playing to a backing track, into a much more comprehensive project and features three tracks taken from the forthcoming album ‘Hello_World’.

The EP contains 2 discs, a DVD and a CD. The CD is playable on all CD players but also has a unique ‘hidden’ analogue track that is playable on a standard record deck. This track was create with our friends at Lathecuts, and each disc was hand made on 80 year old lathe cutting equipment. Consequently, it’s not one for the audiophiles, but don’t worry, you can hear a fully digital version of the track (‘Cycles - Hybrid remix’) in the continuous play section of the DVD.
It won’t hurt your equipment, but the disc may not be playable on certain record decks with auto return arms. It’s just for fun and we really hope that you enjoy it.
