This is a collection of lost songs. Some of them were recorded live at home, some during radio sessions, some even improvising by the river, only one of them in an actual studio. That's why sound quality may not always be as good as you would expect. However, and that's the reason why this compilation has been made, those songs trace a portrait of Oriol Stardust's music, from the beginning until the very end. Enjoy them.

10. Antifolk by the River (feat. The Missing Leech)
Recorded at Bar 25, on the banks of the river Spree in Berlin, July 24th 2010. Both Oriol Stardust and The Missing Leech were playing the Down By the River festival. Shortly after they'd finished their sets, they did an improvised performance as part of the same event. Stardust strummed some antifolk chords while Maurici Ribera (The Missing Leech) made up some lyrics in several languages. If that ain't antifolk enough for you, then you should try something from the New Age section...
