LFO (2)

Dubbed 'The Fake LFO' after the Warp LFO's self-titled track became famous in 1990—"Brainstorm", a bleeps & bass track, appeared to cash in the other band's success. The Warp act responded in the track "We Are Back" with the line "There are many imitators...". However, 'The Fake LFO' was the first on the scene, with a very different "Brainstorm" version released on a 1988 acid house LP.

While it's totally true that Paul Hardcastle had first claim to "LFO" with his 1988 album The Acid Mixes Vol. 1, it strikes me as less than a coincidence that he decided to resurrect the name two years later with some bleep techno (after the success of LFO).

Why choose the name LFO and not Digitalis, Kozmik Krew, The Crazy Diamonds, Microdot Sisters (or even L.F.O.)?

Paul knew what he was doing, and fair play to him. But I don't blame Warp for being pissed.
