MiniDiscs are the coolest things since
baggy pants, and they're the wave of the future
(well, until 2.5-inch re-writable DVD arrives
anyway...) Can millions of Japanese people be
wrong? Check-out some of the stuff I've collected.
I only just recently came across Fluke
thanks to MTV's AMP
show (AKA If We Only Play It At Ungodly Hours
Maybe We Can Replace It
With Another Beach Party Show). They have a
single out called Atom Bomb
which sounds great and has tasty Japanese
anime-esque bits in it.
The single is from the soundtrack to a video
game, which seems really
silly until you actually play the thing ...
I'm embarrased to admit this, but after seeing
that Fluke video I had
an unignorable craving to play the game that it
was written for. Luckily,
the game is incredible. If you have a
PlayStation, you owe it to yourself
to go out and buy this game. If you don't have a
Playstation, you owe it
to yourself to go out and buy one and then walk
right back into the
store and buy this game.
The Fluke video and the Wipeout game are visually
graphics artists Designers Republic, who
have done work
for the likes of Pop Will Eat Itself, The Orb and
Nine Inch Nails. I absolutely
love their designs and am trying to get my hands
on as much info
about them as possible. Surprisingly, they don't
seem to have
their own web site.
