a note about our audio files

Most of our audio files are encoded in the Ogg Vorbis format. Ogg Vorbis is an open-source audio compression format which overcomes many of the drawbacks of the MP3 format--it has a better compression algorithm, so it sounds better at smaller sizes. It's open-source, and doesn't rely on patented compression technology. Plus, being open-source, it can be expanded and enhanced by anyone.

Plugins and standalone players are available for all major operating systems, and can be downloaded from www.vorbis.com. Thanks for helping us support open-source innovation.

However, we understand that many (but not all!) portable music players don't yet support the OGG format, so we're going to begin offering downloads in both formats, as we get around to it, because we love you, and because transcoding from one format to the other reduces the quality of the final product.

If a soundfile isn't listed as having been recorded live at WXDU, then it's probably something we downloaded from the band's website or MySpace page, for use in the groovo.org music player. We only post audio files that were either recorded by us, or were freely downloadable from the band's website whenever we happened to visit.

Old-as-hell (circa 1994) NC-music website. Never updated since 1994. Kinda interesting as a time-capsule.
