Various Artists: The Orb & Youth present: IMPOSSIBLE ODDITIES Mr Modo // W.A.U!. Mr Modo was the product of likeminded music freaks and lifelong friends Youth and Dr Alex Paterson setting out to celebrate and play their part in the acid house revolution sweeping the UK in the late 80s. In the process, they became two of the most well-known and lastingly influential names to emerge from the whole movement, while the label epitomises the innocence and questing spirit of the era. When Youth played bass in apocalyptic post-punk band Killing Joke, Alex was a roadie, prone to leaping onstage and singing Stooges songs in the encores. When Youth left the Joke, the pair found their musical outlooks swiveled by tapes of New York’s dance music radio stations and their jaw-dropping mastermixes. check out: http://www.futurenoisemusic.com/product.aspx?id=697
