Atomic Fire Balls
1998 sampler from Flo to celebrate their first year. 15 tracks for the price of a CD single. "Coming out of seemingly nowhere (I'd never heard of this stuff 'til the mention in The Wire's 'Electronica's New Terrorists' article) is this collection of previous vinyl from the Flo label, run by present noiseniks 2nd Gen (now signed to Mute). Two tracks each from Made in Britain (grainy, almost Techno-Animal-ish boasting), 2nd Gen (mid tempo DHR-ish mess), Pilgrim (minimal lo-fi beats), Code Talker (wacky 'biz' n' bass), and three from Medusa (hyper-cut-up drum n' bass w/ female ragga/bragga vox). Not the most groundbreaking lot in the scheme of world electronic-freakery, but well worth the asking price (it's a 62 minute CD). Obscure (and I've been keeping my head about for this sort of activity)." -- Hrvatski. Limited stock, reduced price.
