Archival Thursdays: Mr Velcro Fastener - Lucky Bastards Living Up North (1999)

Electro wizards Mr Velcro Fastener were on another level when they released their debut full length 'Lucky Bastards Living Up North' back in 1999. Even now, over 10 years later, the sound they created during that era is unparalleled. Filled with crisp beats and deep bass, this album should be the benchmark of all electro music. If you listen to tracks "Real Robots" or "Coywm" you'll surely understand what I'm talking about. You should also check out the remix they made of Iron Maiden's "The trooper"!

I traded a friend of mine a Richard Devine record for this baby back in 2001. What a fool!
