This is a far more satisfying nostalgia trip than I anticipated. Videodrone/COT did lots of things and did lots of things right. I don't get the bagging on the lyrics. I'd say they're a step up from the lyrics of the bands VD was associated with that never seemed to grasp a self-awareness or do crypticism well. The choruses are slinky and anthemic, the samples are loads of fun, and the obligatory Elementree Records cover song isn't something I can hear on a classic radio station! C.O.B. is pretty damn captivating to me as well - It does seem very PIG.
Videodrone has reformed under their old name, Cradle of Thorns. Go to their site on myspace: http://www.myspace.com/cradleofthorns . They have some cool new stuff in the works and if you message them maybe they'll put some of it up on Last.
i cant find this album anywhere its a bummer because back in 99 it was everywhere i should have bought it then anyway very good band to think that they morphed into Adema minus Ty
