LFO – LFO (1990)



I hate to end the week on a sad note; but I do love to end it with a great tune. Last month, it was confirmed that Mark Bell, one of the founding members of house duo LFO, has died. With Gez Varley, Bell quickly established himself as one of the pioneers of early UK house music, helping usher in a creative wave of UK techno. They were part of a confident stable of acts from and around Leeds, Bradford and Sheffield that included Forgemasters, Nightmares on Wax and Unique 3. The bands benefitted from the burgeoning club scene in that part of the world as they had a guaranteed audience. In the case of LFO’s eponymous release on Warp Records, the music lived up to the billing. Bleeps and wall-cracking bass. The video was by John Foxx. Have a great weekend.

    Sad news. This piece of work by LFO is in a class of its own and the Low Frequency Oscillations are a test of any serious sound system. Top 5 tunes of all time for me.
