Night Strike On Fish Island
If you needed another reason to order Timothy J Fairplay's debut album Where Is The Champion? this has just been put up, a fast moving and intense synth trip. The video, while looking like a computer game, is made up of real life footage.
The video for Autoduel is more like one of the games in those the coin operated, arcade games machines. There was a car stereo fitters at the top of the road where I grew up, Transound. We'd happily feed the machines with 10 pence pieces 'til we ran out while 1980s cars got fitted out with state of the art sound systems. The music here sounds like a drive round town long after dark.
The advert for Moon War above, a 1981 arcade game, knows exactly what younger teenage boys (video games most enthusiastic players) were/are interested in.
