Commoflage är en svensk podcast som spelar SID-musik från Commodore 64, och C64-remixar. Mitt namn är Henrik Andersson, jag är 4X år och växte upp med en härligt beige Commodore 64 och dess ljud. För mig lever SID-musiken fortfarande kvar. Ofta bisitter Anders Hesselbom och ser till att sunket hålls till ett minimum!
Commoflage English Edition 10 – The Last Ever Episode, Probably
This is it; the last ever episode, probably. The end of the line, the… I don’t know, list whatever metaphores you think of here. Almost 36 minutes rounds off this podcast, so, you know… click play. A torrent with the complete set of episodes will be available later.
Commoflage English Edition 09 – Chris Abbott & the 8-bit Symphony
For this episode I had a nice chat with Chris Abbott, the man behind several C64 remix CDs, live shows and kickstarters bearing the name ”Back In Time”. Following the latest kickstarter, ”Back In Time Symphonic Collection”, there will be a live symphonic orchestra concert with no less than 80 (!) musicians on stage performing a fantastic selection of Commodore 64 tunes! Find out all about it here, clear your schedule for June 15th 2019, buy a ticket and get to Hull City Hall in Hull, England. It’s just that easy. Also, the episode is nearly 64 minutes long, so there’s that.

Commoflage EE: English Edition – 08: Ben Daglish
I had other plans. But I’m sure he did too. So, instead of celebrating 7 years of Commoflage, I am celebrating the music of Ben Daglish in this episode. Ben passed away on October 1st 2018 from lung cancer, and I personally hold him as one of the greatest SID composers of all time. Join me for a little more than an hour of my favourite tunes of his.
Commoflage EE: English Edition – 07
He’s back – the man behind the can (of Pepsi) and he’s out of control! Babbling about puppets, weird keyboards, SID composing tricks, and not even mentioning Rob Hubbard. Insane! Devote 35 minutes of your time to the new episode of Commoflage, die englische Ausgabe! Also, here’s a link I will tell you about: johannesbjerregaard.bandcamp.com
Commoflage EE: English Edition 06: Rambo
Here it is, the episode I’ve all been waiting for – The Rambo: First Blood Part II special! Featuring things like music from the game, the film and remixes, plus actual facts about things that I haven’t made up on the spot! Also it’s the shortest episode so far, which is something I can try to be proud of.
Commoflage EE: English Edition – 05
Hey! Stop everything for 45 minutes and get a load of the man – nay, the DOCTOR – Rob Hubbard himself. All of that epic and unique Hubbardness can be difficult to handle, I know. But I have faith in you, and you know that you will come out the other end a better person. A stronger person. A more Hubbardy person. And this is a good thing.
Best C64 music-centric podcast I’ve ever heard.
Mr. Henrik has been doing the Commoflage podcast for quite a while in Swedish, and only recently started producing an English version. I can’t speak to the Swedish version, but the English version is superlative. He has a wealth of knowledge about all things C64, from obscure composers to the intricacies of the SID chip. He also plays a good mix of SID compositions and remixes thereof, which keeps outsiders like myself interested.
Last but not least, he’s hilarious; his dry, gentle sarcasm keeps me grinning from each episode’s beginning to end. Listening to Commoflage is always a blast. So sit back, pop the tab on a cool, refreshing Pepsi, and watch out for niñas. They’re easy to miss, with all the commoflage about.
Great VGM content
I’m really excited to hear more from Henrik as the quality of the songs and information is top notch.
