The official Rob Hubbard Kickstarter has reached its final week. The campaign is now in stretch goal mode and heading for an exciting conclusion.
If the music of Rob Hubbard has ever made you happy then backing Project Hubbard is a great opportunity to say THANK YOU to the legendary composer!
You can pledge for the hardback book Rob Hubbard – The Official Reference, new SID and remix music, a Rob Hubbard game cartridge, and much more! The top goal is an 8bit music concert with the London Symphony Orchestra!
Dr Rob Hubbard is best known for his Commodore 64 SID work, but he also composed music for the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, PC, NES, Mega Drive/Genesis, Amiga, ST, 3DO and SNES. He is also an orchestrator, and prolific live performer. Rob is fully involved with the Kickstarter and getting back into the studio!
Earlier in the year Norwegian rock/metal band @Fastloaders successfully crowd-funded their album Ninja Musicology – a triple CD containing guitar based covers of the original sound-track from the iconic Commodore 64 trilogy The Last Ninja.
Part of the Kickstarter campaign was a live performance to be recorded for Blu-Ray
release. The concert is being held on Saturday 15th October at the world famous Underworld Club in Camden, London, UK.
In this one off show they will be playing a two hour set of tunes from the C64 Last Ninja
games, accompanied on some tracks by performances from the legendary original
composer Ben Daglish.
Doors open 6pm, and after the gig there is a meet and greet with the fans, Ben, and the equally legendary @MattGray.
Remember the games The Last Ninja on the Commodore 64? Love the music?
Ninja Musicology is a Kickstarter by Norwegian rock/metal band Fastloaders. They aim to produce remakes of the music from the C64 versions of The Last Ninja game series with real guitar, bass, drums and keyboards. There is also a live concert and concert Blu-Ray.
The triple CD set/download will include 34 tracks total. The Fastloaders are describing the project as a tribute to the musical genius of the original C64 composers Ben Daglish, Matt Gray, Anthony Lees, and Reyn Ouwehand.
The October live show is at the world famous Underworld Club in Camden, London, and if the Kickstarter succeeds a video will be made of the performance. Ben Daglish will be guest performing, with fellow Last Ninja C64 composer Matt Gray also in attendance.
The campaign is in its final week and ends on the 27th April.

The campaign is already on stretch goals, and it has recently been announced that C64 legends Matt Gray and Allister Brimble will contribute to the 6th album if the funding level is reached. There are lots of interesting rewards on offer including a vinyl option, t-shirts, and art book!

Go 8-Bit! is a totally daft retro game playing show where comedians (and some of the audience!) battle on classic video games. It’s like Gamesmaster, with chilli sauce, and porridge smoothies, but no Patrick Moore.
Do You Want to Know a Secret? I am just a humble Paperback Writer. Yesterday, I was on a Day Tripper with Elanor Rigby, and it had been a Hard Day’s Night. While strolling along Abbey Road for a Day in the Life I noticed that a large ZX Spectrum was stuck to the side of the studio. Peeping From a Window I spotted the „clean up this place now!“ eyes of my rather irate housekeeper. Girl! Her name was Lady Madonna, or was it Lucy? No, it was Maria!
Hello, Goodbye! I am again in a nightmare where giant skulls were trying to crush my top hat and entrails and I still cannot get past the blooming Banyan Tree? Your Mother Should Know. I feel like a Nowhere Man. I have to Pick Up Every Little Thing, Eight Days a Week!
