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.
