Fat Truckers – “Superbike”
But while Ladytron was the best band that made the best records, the very best album of the genre was actually a compilation. Futurism #1, a 2002 mix CD by the East London label City Rockers (among those thriving in London’s East End well before the Olympics “saved” it), was the soundtrack of summer ’02 (um, on Withers St. in Williamsburg, anyway). Its two-disc running length had plenty of room for the obvious stuff like “Emerge” and “Lovertits,” but also this goofbomb from Sheffield’s Fat Truckers, an easily danceable example of the genre’s willful silliness.
geez I used to love those club days, listening to this stuff at The District and Revolver in Miami! songs like Mount Sims – “how we do” although I don’t think its considered electroclash… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMCXHP_xqFY
It’s about time for a reunion of The Kenn Firpo Rent Explosion.
A movie about the Firpos is in production.
