Chippendales Discography Released on Soundcloud

No, it's not what you're thinking. Chippendales was an chipmusic collective that was active in 1999-2000, producing some of the finest tunes ever on the Amiga. The group consisted of Zandax, Chavez, Beathawk, Vent, Abaddon, Goto80, Curt Cool, and Tempest. Unfortunately they disbanded quickly after legal threats over the name, and realizing that few people cared about their music in that time. In Tempest's words,
"Back then chipmusic was very unfashionable and - to be honest - nobody in the demoscene gave a shit about what we were doing. We were almost 10 years too late for Amiga scene (demo/intro packs, crack intros etc), and 10 years too early for the current chipmusic craze."
A pity, really. Fortunately, the music has been preserved, and now, 14 years later, the group has released their discography as a soundcloud set. Thanks guys!

See for the playlists. The original MOD files can be found here.
