    The especially shitty part is LFO was still performing live and seemed to be putting on a good show, and of course didn't make it to the US any time recently.

    Yes, it's a joke, you dense as fuck moron.

    Also, you are one of the most disrespectful, rude, mean people on this board. You have absolutely no place to call anyone out on anything.

    Advance as well.

    And ya'll should feel ashamed. Spooks has been a fan of LFO for years and years and years.

    I think some people are getting LFO (British electronic pioneers) mixed up with LFO (Crappy American pop group who did Summer Girls and other lousy hits, one of their members did die but in 2010),

    Did you look at what is happening in this thread and then truly believe that people are confused about that?

    Is anyone here genuinely angry or upset, or are we all just pretending to find the joke of LFO (the producer) and LFO (the group) in bad taste?
    People here rarely have feelings, so it's hard to tell.

    I thought it was fairly funny, and it became funnier once spooks peed in his cheerios over it.

    Didn't he play on the ReacTable during Bjork's set at Coachella in 2007? I am pretty sure he was there.
