Highlights for me included Triumphant by by the Modified Toy Orchestra and some beep-heavy cover versions of Kraftwerk’s The Model, Weezer’s Buddy Holly and (cough, cough) Europe’s The Final Countdown (by Nullsleep, Nordloef and Moondabor, respectively). And, before you ask, I hadn’t heard of Nullsleep, Nordloef and Moondabor before last night (although I have mentioned the rather excellent Modified Toy Orchestra both here and here).
An acquired taste, perhaps, but one worth acquiring. That’s assuming that you share a similar weakness for beepy-burpy tunes that evoke memories of old computer games.
Maybe next time we’ll get In The Hall of the Mountain King from Manic Miner…
