Psychic and Logic – best of
Listen on machinefirst.bandcamp.com
As a teenager my very first recording projects, on my Tascam Portal007, were as “Psychic and Logic”. Over about two years, I put out 7 EPs containing 71 songs (there are actually more than that since one of the recordings “Transgressions at Wibish” I couldn’t find a copy of the recording, though I did find the artwork).
For the last twenty+ years I have been carrying these tapes around like treasures everywhere I moved, always intending to digitize them and remove the tape hiss, so that I could back them up somewhere. Over the last week, finally was able to do that.
Only two of the recordings had cover art (because those ones I made copied of on my tape deck and photocopied covers for friends at summer camp and work weekends, so maybe someone has a copy of “Transgressions at Wibish” somewhere). For the other ones, I had a bunch of drawings in a notebook, below, which could have been covers if I had printed them out. (In the prephotoshop days the downsizing to fit as covers was the most time consuming part).
Thought it would be fun/funny to put some of my favorites onto a ‘best of’ of the seven records I could find (eight Total)

- Transgressions at Wibish
