about

The name "Klaatu" has long been thought to mean "Been Here Before".
Recorded at ESP studios Buttonville Ontario, AIR studios and home studio in Britain and "Been Here Before" at 2nd sun studios Toronto.
These were all demos that never were re-visited, but represent a period of my life when I discovered the Fairlight Series 2 and sampling. Hence the bizarre sounding songs, mixed with some nice melodic bits.
You truly can "Never Go Back", but that song and "I Cry Out" are updated on my latest "Life AfterLife" album.
