Is Dan Bull Dan Le Sac? Sure sounds like him.

I think you're thinking of Scroobius Pip...I'm pretty sure Dan Le Sac was the production side of that partnership, but yeah they do sound somewhat similar.

That's a really good tune...the lyrics spat out like machine gun fire.

Very cool lyrics, main stream sound, kick ass content.

What makes it nice, as opposed to a lot of these "lets sing/poem/wtf ever about computer games or nerdy things" they all seem to take the piss out of themselves constantly.
Normally these geek-cool artists seem so scared of what they want to do in case their old nemesis jock bully will come back from their past and flush their heads down toilets.

Really lovely to see someone that doesn't doubt themselves so much to say "Hey guys, ive made this song ... but its totally lame and geeky so you'll probably not watch it and even if you do, it's ok if you call me a nerd-weed because I kind of deserve it - daring to do something so lame and uncool like this lol. What's that? Yes of course you can have my lunch money!" and more so "Hey guys i've made this song, it's pretty cool"

Go listen to Optimus Rhyme, Nursehella, and Grammar Club and have a fifty word report about how wrong you are on my desk by tomorrow morning.

Games in the 90s had more soul.

Yep you're right here is UK Dan Bull's website. Which makes more sense as his current blog post is entitled: "Why Star Trek made me angry".

If there was a 486 playing the first Mechwarrior game, and a PS playing Armored Core, and a post-red ring of death psp, this would have been a precise reiteration of the machines I've gamed on. Weird.

This isn't the same guy that did the Robocop Rap, is it?
