NGI goes super-old school this week as they welcome a very special guest: Nick Burgess! Nick is the man behind one of the very first video game music radio shows and direct inspiration for KyleJCrb to start his own: Super Radio X! He is also half of Mega Man cover band Project X, along with Mike Gintz, who together also form the original music projects Clawjob and Hex Map. Nick comes on to talk about gaming and game music, as well as delve into the history of Project X and gives some insight into his new solo project, Wizard Planet!
Nick has also graciously offered his solo album, as well as the Project X and Hex Map albums at a 25% discount to all KNGI listeners! Just use the coupon code TEAMGATO on Bandcamp to take advantage of the offer.
