16 bit bad ass

Hype Williams used to be a lo-fi goth band, but this latest song sounds like a sega death cult mega drive orgy. I like that!

This reminded me of some other awesome mega drive music. Below are two of the best.

Chaos Reigns

Although I find Herzog's views on nature somewhat pessimistic, I identify with his opinion on Chaos. Some are intimidated by the realisation that chaos is the governing law of the cosmos, others are comforted.

Street Rock

Street rock is a term that is rarely used as it actually describes bands that span across several genres. The term was first used to describe British pub rock bands at the tail end of the Glam rock phenomenon and was used in the seventies to refer both to glam rock bands like Slade and to pub bands like Dr.Feelgood who were influenced by the Beat groups of the Sixties such as The Who. Later the term was used to describe pre-punk bands like Slaughter and the Dogs and Cock Sparrer. Eventually the term was replaced by the more widely known Oi!, a definition coined by the universally hated Sun journalist Garry Bushell, in reference to a song by The Cockney Rejects. Compiled here are some videos of Street Rock bands from the 70's and 80's for your amusement.
