A good description of this record would be that it's like the soundtrack to a carnival hosted on the moon. And just like the carnival there is much fun to be had. "Yakety Moog" is a version of the music made famous on the "Benny Hill Show" (I also used a similar version in a short film I made many years ago), "Moog Foo Yong" takes the famous instrument on a trip to Hong Kong and "Party Machine" is 8 minutes of pure insanity by Bruce Haack that comes off sounding like a disco infused version of Kraftwerk.
Some of the tracks have a feeling of familiarity, for instance I'm positive the beginning of "Sonik Re-Entry" has been sampled by someone but I can't put my finger on it. Much like "Electronic Toys Vol.1" the overall vibe of the record is strictly adhered to, you could almost believe all these songs came from the same artist.
Please note - sadly the only rip I have is missing the last 2 tracks, if you should happened to find a complete copy (trust me I've already looked hard!) then please leave a message and I'll swap the links over.
