I grew up in the C64 scene, and loved reading Zzap64! reviews of all the latest games. They were always harking on about how good certain musicians were, particularly Rob Hubbard. At the time I remember thinking how bloody right they were too.
Now call me behind the times, but thanks to Death in Vegas's last "Kraftwerk inspired" album, I've dug out some classic Kraftwerk. And by golly, it sounds JUST like C64 game music. In fact in one or two cases we are talking a direct rip off
Were certain C64 artists rather derivative?
