Music Videos

As some of you may know, I spent the better part of the 80's playing with music on videotape. I am presently examining the collection, and dubbing down (up?) the small portion of it that I am interested in preserving / conserving. I started this project in the fall of '05, and it is in the status of ongoing concern.

Bit of a grave dig but if you happen to have a better quality copy of the Valid or Void video than the one currently on youtube then Shrink himself would likely be very interested since he doesn't actually have a copy beyond a rip of the youtube video! If you would be at all interested in passing it on I'd be happy to put you in touch!

oh also i saw on another post you wondered if Shrink did more. well, there was another single called I Am A Doll, and a 10" EP with Silver Genes as the lead track. Silver Genes was also done as a 7" promo i think.

aaand whilst I am at it, have some links :)
