Anyone have heard Apoptygma Berzerk
Quite cool music with some retro C64 style... And rock (depending witch album)
Now Stephan L. Groth (The man who started Apoptygma Berzerk) have done i side project called Fairlight Children
(style of Kraftwerk, Fischerspooner, ladytron and Miss kittin)
Snipped from interview
Gary: Fairlight Children seems to have adapted a retro theme with the album's art and style, even some of the samples on the album (most noticably Pac-Man like samples from either Commodore 64 or Atari 2600). In that, I have to ask, were you a big video game fan when you were younger? When I first heard these elements so strongly I nearly hit the ceiling! What are some of your favorites?
FC: when I was younger? I'm still a video game fan, and will always be. I got my first atari 2600 at the age of 12, at that time space invaders and centipede were my favorites. I then moved on to my all time favorite computer, the c-64. My c-64 favorites were : commando, international karate, frankie goes to hollywood and tons of others. Later on it was the playstation, and the last few years I`ve been gaming on my mac and on the xbox. now I`m more into games like age of empire, age of mythology and Tom Clancy`s stuff.
