24-7-365 (2010)

The first collection of new material by Data-Bank-A in 8 years.

"After 30 years of recording and more than 50 years of living, Time has begun to preoccupy me quite a lot lately: its passing, its affects, how it seems to keep coming back, going in circles. So for this collection I built the songs around Time as a lyrical theme, using song structures from my early work and pulling out old equipment from the early 1980s to create a retro-intro-spective feeling. You'll hear lots of my old gear - like my beloved Juno 60, Roland 707 and 909 drum machines, and even a classic 1970s beat box."
