Roland MC-8 Micro-Composer

Vintage Roland MC-8 Sequencer Archive

Shock – ANGEL FACE – Produced by RJ Burgess on the MC-8

Here’s a fun track from 1980 that was sequenced entirely on the MC-8 by Landscape‘s Richard James Burgess:

Richard says:

Oh yes, that was all me. That is entirely MC-8. Rusty Egan brought the group and the song and I programmed everything in my home studio and recorded it at Mayfair Studios in South Moulton St. with John Hudson engineering. It was the System 100Ms with the 10x gate modification on the bass line for sure. I did all their recordings and I wrote the rest of the songs with various members. Rusty and I wrote the B side in about ten minutes at my house – RERB – our initials – very imaginative – but it still gets played in clubs to this day. I loved this group they were so outrageous, this was a very fun time both personally and creatively.

Watch this space soon for an exclusive interview with Richard on his use of the MC-8 on Landscape’s “From The Tearooms Of Mars To The Hell-Holes Of Uranus!”

  1. Hi, did you ever get around to having a chat with Martin Rushent about his use of the MC8 on Dare ? I am interested to hear how he used this and to what equipment it sequenced. Cheers.
