Hardware '86 - Hardware '86 EP

Recommended Posts

Now we're talking, 6 tracks of awesomeness...

Hardware '86 is Rune Aalberg Alstad and Sigurd Ekle 

Hardware '86 started as a study project at the Norwegian University of Technology and Science (NTNU), aiming to find the true sound of 80's rock using modern equipment. This EP is a collection of songs written and produced in 2012 (1, 4, 5, 6), in 2013 (2) and in 2016 (3). 

All songs were written, played and produced by Hardware '86. Guest musicians: David Saylor (1, 2, 3, 5), Snorre Valen (2, 4), Olav Slagsvold (6) and Bjørn Bakken (5).

It's pleasant enough sounding, but you cannot capture the true sound of the 80's in 2019 (or 2012, or whenever they recorded these tracks).

Most of us here actually were around in the 80's to remember the culture, style, fashion, vibe, aura, etc.  Those of you who were not... sorry, it's impossible to fully explain; akin to trying to describe color to someone who is blind.

I graduated from high school in 1986, so I am this band's target audience.  I appreciate their effort, but their time "studying" at school would have been better spent watching FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH on repeat (preferably on Betamax).  That movie does a damn good job of describing color to the blind.

jeez mate fair enough.

look it's a decent EP. I listened to it on Spotify. Sounds pretty cool.

I actually think it is possible to create the 80s sound and can think of several bands which sound just as awesome as anything from the 80s.

Don't know what to make of this one. Just listened to the EP once and I must say it didn't do much.
