Brett's 2p'orth: For anyone who fancies reliving their Galaxian and PacMan-playing past, the tracks they produced for a game called Reset Generation are available for free download. The final track '2D Died' (a eulogy to 8bit games [extremely badly] sung to the tune of Don McLean's 'American Pie') is begging for someone like Weird Al to transform it into something listenable. Also available on YouTube.
