Woob – AD4PTION : A History for the Curious

Ad4ption is out today and you can catch up on the existing written storyline here but I just wanted to touch briefly on the creation of this album as not since Have Landed has a Woob album had such a checkered history.

Back in early 2018 I started the album, it began with a folder (AD4) left over from ‘Tales of Arcadia’ that contained an unfinished track called ‘Bricks’. I got around three tracks in with a few just beginning when a sudden threat of having to move house combined with me wanting to do a vinyl release meant I had to shelve it temporarily. The move never materialised and then things took a traumatic turn, so it wasn’t until earlier this year that I got to continue where I had left off.

Previously on Adaption…

With Adaption Part 4 out any day now I though it would be useful to put all the written word side of the story into one post with some musical interludes.

Adaption Parts 1 and 2 date back to 2015 and were available together for 90 days and they have not been seen since…

Adaption‘ is a psychological thriller / horror musical adaptation of a story centered around a small coastal town’s abandoned video-arcade that mysteriously springs to life after midnight transforming all its unsuspecting visitors into the undead.

Woob joins Tangerine Dream, Hecq and others on this New Compilation Album from Grenzwellen

Grenzwellen is a radio-show in German language hosted by Ecki Stieg broadcasted on Radio Hannover.
