Truckasaurus – Super Copter
A bit of fun for Friday and a spot of nostalgia too. Much of my childhood was spent being captivated by whatever U.S. film and TV shows I had access to – that is, when I wasn’t spending half an hour waiting to see if the cassettes of my ZK Spectrum games would load. So my interest was piqued when I heard about a group of electronica musicians using Commadore 64s to make their tunes…including a cover of the Airwolf theme. Their album Tea Parties, Guns and Valor is out now on Forthcity and it’s worth pointing out that this track is not representitive of their work, which is more in line with Aphex Twin than merely relying on a cheap novelty value.
