W-Vibe

Posted By on Wed, Sep 15, 1999 at 12:00 AM

Simply the finest in retro-electro-rock, the W-Vibe's plundering of obsolete '80s game technology (particularly the sonically-rich Atari 2600 system), synthetic drums and effects machines that have lost their cutting edge and DIY space-ace getups necessarily puts 'em in a class by themselves. Luckily, Dan and Joe, the humans behind the analog sounds, take their duty now for the past beyond novelty and create some alternately doom-and-brood and happily-retro-cheesy ditties with our culture's detritus. Plus, they can really shake it down when they play live!
