Discography

Introduction

This is a basic discography of our releases thus far although it is, alas, incomplete. Back in the day, we dropped so many pieces on so many compilation albums that we simple forgot which tracks appeared where. Worse, after the demise of the original incarnation of Thinking Metal way back in 1999, some of our details were lost and others were never updated. Most of these tracks were used with my permission, some without. And some? I'd forgotten I'd ever written them.

Of course, we would love to get a full discography together, just so that I have something to look back on in my fading years and perhaps tell the Grandchildren how the Old Man nearly made it big. Yeah, Dream on, Dave. :)

So, if you know of a track that's been used somewhere and doesn't appear in the list below then please let me know via the Contact page. I'll be extremely grateful and you'll also get a mention here as an honorary archivist.
