One of the main electronic music anthem, from the Sheffield duet LFO aka Mark Bell & Jez Varley
About the record
I received a promo copy of this EP in 1991. Tommy Boy record was promoted by Fnac Dance Division in France. At that time I was the resident DJ for the club BOY in Limoges, France. I remember that I simply loved it on the first listening, and that I wanted to play it on the following night. I did, and the audience response was amazing, incredible, people were screaming, but, on those Low Frequency Oscillations, we lost part of our turbo sound system ! I still remember the face of the guy who came to repair it the day after who wonder to know if we went to far on the volume. “Nope, as usual”, I said, lying a bit, then : “what the hell did you play to burn this out?” 23 years later, I had the chance to see Mark Bell playing is solo project at Astropolis 2014, about 3 month before he passed away… I loved his show.
