about

System Restore is the story of a laptop's demise... Not just any laptop, but 'Metal Mickey', my loyal music-making partner for the past 8+years! This colllection of tracks were the only bits and pieces I could salvage from his hard-drive. They were made in approximately a five-year period, between 2008-13. In his current state, Mickey can no longer function. He has become little more than an overly-expensive paperweight, with internet browsing capabilities. If he was in this mess two months ago, System Restore would never had existed. So here's to you loyal friend...one last hurrah! May your OS rest in peace in Silicon Heaven.

Broken Windows
Through which no lights stream
Shattered system
Battered machine.
The bubble's burst
A painful blister
Old Memory
A distant Vista.
A nervous system
Cannot be ignored
Neither can it be
Restored...

Purchase of this album also includes the bonus track 'Silicon Heaven'

System Restore works best as a 'gapless' album.
Streaming via this site does not fully represent the true quality of the material or the gapless running order.
