about

This is the album that started it all. In the Spring of 2002, in the Sixth Form Common Room at Alcester Grammar School, a battle was raging. It was fairly civilised as far as battles go, with the main form of aggression being the rotation of a volume control, and the principle weapon a bassy speaker. Nevertheless, a battle was raging, between the kids that liked dance, those who preferred classical, the goths and the punks, and the indie kids. Between the four or five stereo systems the Common Room held, music crashed and jangled like sword ringing discordantly against shield.

It was in this climate that Dani, part of the goth crowd, made a bet with one of the dance kids that he could write a dance album in a week, because "dance music is stupid." That evening, he loaded up a copy of fruityloops and set to work.

If anything, this album is a vindication of the dance kid's position – it was completed in a week, but it's terrible. In fact, Dani changed his views after working on the album, and came to appreciate dance music better as a result of it. Despite its faults, however, "tastes like razors" caught Alex's imagination. The two resolved to work on something together in future.
