Acid Memories is the name of Boards of Canada's second known release. The Jockey Slut article by Richard Southern describes Acid Memories as:

"Absurdly rare, cassette-only release from the barely teen Boards, then six-strong. Guitars meet electronics in embryonic but recognisably Boards-ian melodicism."

It has been said that the album is "even less imposing" than its predecessor, Catalog 3.[1]

Of the album's six tracks, only a 24 second excerpt of "Duffy"[2] (posted on the EHX website in the late 1990s) has been heard by those outside of the band's friends and family.

Artwork[edit]

Web images of the Acid Memories cover show the name "Boards of Canada"; the album was released as a cassette in 1989 and was never re-released. However, the band claimed that it did not "officially" use the name "Boards of Canada" until 1994, bringing the authenticity of this image (or perhaps the existence of the album itself) into question.

Tracks[edit]

  1. "Duffy" – 2:18
  2. "Growing Hand" – 4:55
  3. "Petina" – 4:49
  4. "Stry Craty Bya" – 8:03
