yea I love all the old street sounds electro releases too. i'd probably put my back out if I did the caterpillar though! safer for me to be behind the decks mixing the music or doing the robot I think!

Tbh, I thought it would be difficult to out do classic electro tracks, like 'Looking For The Perfect Beat', by Afrika Bambaataa, but that ERP track is just simply stunning.
