Is it just me who, in occasional misty-eyed moments, harks back to the glory days of early 90s dance music and video game culture? Well, apparently I'm not completely alone...

Alex Mauer (described as a 'chiptune musician') is releasing his new album of "conceptual synthsizer music" exclusively, it seems, as an Nintendo NES cartridge... Luckily for those of us for whom the NES has long been consigned to the attic (why such a cruel exile?), examples of the album are available to listen to on his Myspace page.

To be listened to whilst drinking Cherryade through a straw, playing Sensible Soccer on a PROPER old joystick and ignoring Wimbledon on the telly. Superb!
