This song is making me choke up.

I have it, and I agree.
I consider it important, but I never knew what at the time.

If you want a rip I can probably sort you.

Just gonna say, that clip of the WTC at the end remains spooky.
Admittedly, anything this the WTC is a bit spooky in retrospect, but Max Q were totally a "cyberpunk" sorta band.

And they were, in a way that's not really communicable to anyone who doesn't remember what that word meant and how it felt at the end of the Eighties.

That is the best description of Max Q and Cyberpunk. If you could capture the zietgiest in a bottle as it was happening, that would be it.

And now I need to watch the second half of a movie about knights and motorcycles. Thanks, Mr Romero. That's zietgiesty too, I suppose.

(RevDrD linked to a rip of Max Q two years back with B-sides but I doubt it's still active. Juts saying.)

FLAC? Link please!

I have mp3 here, you are most welcome to them (ask and I'll put 'em back up).

Hooray. That means I can put off reconnecting my turntable to the winbox even longer.

I did listen to it last night. I'd say about 80% if it has aged really well.

Win!

Yeah, there was another CD that included a pile of the B-sides.

That was the Japanese version IIRC.

Agreed.
Somehow, this song captures that chunk of the era perfectly.

Doesn't matter. I need to rip more vinyl anyway. And since you gave me Paranoia we're cool.
And I don't tend to rip vinyl until asked because it's such pain.

but that vid reminded me what a rock'n album that was. I have some NO I ripped for trayce. I'll try and package it up. It just might take a while since my winbox has been neglected a bit lately.

The No albums were released as CDs, in fact. (No, I haven't found copies either. I remember seeing copies in the old Peril in the mid-'90s.

This.
Hello Libya. Hello Japan. Sigh.

Thanks for linking to this vid, and for this conversation thread. I loved this song at the time, but didn't even know what cyberpunk *was* until years later.
And I'm glad Michael got to do something valuable and personal apart from INXS before he died.

And the soundtrack for 2011? Usher, Lady Gaga and that damned Bieber thing.

I don't beliebe that. :)
No, it could be true. It was three years before that Cyberpunk docco was released, and back then three years was forever.

And I'm glad Michael got to do something valuable and personal apart from INXS before he died.

And Ollie had one last tilt at good music before he discovered Trance.
(Tangent: Snog are still going. Huh).

Fun Fact: In aerospace engineering, max Q is the point of maximum dynamic pressure, the point at which aerodynamic stress on a spacecraft in atmospheric flight is maximized.
