Video Freak x 2000  

Some cuts I don't want to post for no other than the artist names and track titles are too long, don't fit in an ID3 v1 tag, are easily misspelled or are a pain to type with one finger. These selfish artists had no appreciation for the fact that I may want to post their work, for free, on the internet one day.

Trigger Finger And The Space Cadets' Defend It U (Video Freak) (The New York City Club Mix) was written by Tony Rose and Charles Alexander of Prince Charles And The City Beat Band fame. Watch out for the other couple of 12s and the handful of 45's that also came out on Solid Platinum Records, I have another somewhere and I swear it also starts with the same wolf howl sound. This isn't just a killer indie electro funk jam, its a poignant social commentary of the emerging impact video games were having on young people in 1982..under the guise of a killer rare indie electro funk jam..

    Wow, this is an awesome post! Is there a way to download these all at once? Or do I really have to click save target as for each one?

    I didn't put them up as a single download for a couple of reasons. Firstly, a single archive would be massive, and I pay for this bandwidth out of pocket, so having them as separate links slows people down and saves beatelectric money potentially. Secondly, I like the idea of people randomly clicking around the list and digging whilst on the site, as I don't know entirely whats in there either, so its like virtual communal crate digging, plus I just like the way all these numbered links look on the page.

    "Trigger Finger & The Space Cadets", what an electro-gem you have dug up there (as well as contender for best artist name I have heard all year!).

    Funny enough in regards to your comments, that was the first thing that popped into my head when confronted with the beautiful grid of numbers; it's a virtual crate diggin' experience!

    Then that got me to thinking, what a cool game it would make! Virtual record shop, your avatar goes in and has to find the most rare records with extra points for naming the white labels etc - grading the records, selling your virtual records.....Sims with beards!

    You can tell I have far too much time on my hands!

    where the hell do you get all these massive collections from?

    Fantastic! Was into Prince Charles and the City Beat Band back in "the day" but didn't know about this one. Now for those 1916 modern soul tracks :-)

    why would you post a billion partial songs? that makes no sense. did you purposely edit them? if not, how do you obtain so many partials? I don't have any partials. Very bizarre. I respect your enthusiasm, but sometimes I don't know what to make of what you post!
