M r . M usic
Welcome to the
Mechanically Reclaimed Music

website, where we attempt to scrape
the last remaining morsels of musical goodness
off the decaying bones of
pop muzak shrink wrapped culture.

This is the home of
'…and the Native Hipsters'
Lo Fi bedroom recorders,
still releasing product because they want to.

And talking of product,
There are now 2 albums worth
of Hipster tunes for your ears
`There Goes Concorde Again'
- released in 2001.

…and the brand new
`SONGS TO PROTEST ABOUT'
released at the start of 2006.

You can find details of both albums below,
…and buy directly from us.


'There Goes Concorde Again'
£20 - includes UK Postage
and a FREE copy of the 'Protest' CD
OR

'Songs To Protest About'
£7.50 including postage in the UK,
…and its very easy and safe to pay with PayPal.

Alternatively, if your just here for a visit,
you can check out the Hipsters history,
or listen to snippets of tunes,
or destroy our music with the golden hammer.

Its entirely up to you…



OK, now that everybody is comfortable, let's begin
Cast your fate to the wind,
then cast your minds back to 1980 ...

'...and the Native Hipsters' released
"There Goes Concorde Again" as a 7inch 33rpm EP.
A real bedroom recording, - recorded in a living room.
500 copies were printed up, the labels rubber stamped by hand.
The covers were unused billboard posters, cut to size by hand.
Eventually we sold 5,000 copies
and our rubber stamp lay exhausted in the corner...
read the story in full here

Years later, Rough Trade
include the Concorde song on their '25 Years of Rough Trade' CD.
We decide to release a retrospective hipster CD.
Drawn from a large library of tapes, recorded over the last 20 years,
and pieced together like a musical jigsaw.
...We love it, but then we would. But don't take our word for it,

...the story so far...

In 1980 ...(and the) native hipsters
released "there goes concorde again" as a 7inch 33rpm EP.

A real bedroom recording; recorded in a living room.
500 copies were printed up, the labels rubber stamped by hand.

The covers were unused billboard posters, cut to size by hand. Eventually we sold 5,000 copies and our poor little rubber stamp lay exhausted and panting in the corner.
