Luke Vibert’s Acidisco does exactly what it says it does. The Junior Boys were on this CD three years before they were the toast of the blogosphere. Two Banks of Four is another project of Rob Gallagher, originally in jazz-funkers Galliano, and also known for his Earl Zinger alter ego. It’s decent Gilles Peterson-style groovy stuff. Tortoise get the dubious prize for the longest and most incomprehensible name for this piece of classic noodling off their TNT album. Princess Superstar, big in 2003, brings a slab of er, disco pogo punk funk. And finally we have a bonus of Sasha Funke’s piece of moody electronica.

This really is the last in the series. It’s been occasional, but I’ve finally got through all the compilations in this legendary series. Hope you’ve enjoyed the tracks. And I’m glad to have given some old ravers (including myself) a bit of nostalgia for a great lost mag.
