I was checking out a 7″ cover of the 720 soundtrack released by a band called Metronome the City, trying to track down an original that wasn’t on eBay, and of course I stumbled on a bunch of other time wasting distractions. Ahh… Interwebs™. Let me count the ways that I love you.
Transfer of the cassette soundtrack that might have been released by Computer & Video Games Magazine at some point during 720’s heyday.

Metronome the City plays the music of 720 live in 2008. This looks like it might be a flexi disc pressing. It’s apparent that they released a proper 7″ version (see image above: bottom left) but I don’t know if it’s the same live version or not. I actually prefer the original videogame soundtrack which is a pretty solid 80’s era copy of Devo-esque new wave.
Here’s a screen capture of the game map pieced together by 720 Zone, your one stop shop for all things 720°, and I mean ALL things, like buying guides, ROMs, owner’s manuals, sound effects downloads, promo flyers, game strategies, restoration instructions, 720 in the media, high score conspiracy theories… you name it. My hat’s off (painters cap with a sticker under the brim, folded up) to Jeff Civitate for being, well, the Skate and Annoy of the 720 video game.
