Archival Thursdays: Datathief - Bandwidth (2001)

If you're having a craving for some low down dirty analog electro, seek no further cause UK's Datathief are here. Brian Flanagan and Mike Hopkins create some serious beats, but also create video games as well on the side. Brian also lived in Miami for a short while, doing shows and working with labels such as Beta Bodega. 'Bandwidth' is their only full length/EP released and was supposedly so scarce during that time that not even Datathief themselves had a copy from what I understand. The entire release is solid all throughout, however be sure to check out the grimey goodness that is "Fall of the silicon empire".

I picked up this gem from the online shop Bent Crayon back in 2001 when it was released.
