Luke Vibert is a bearded wonder, cut from the same cloth as slightly bonkers bearded wonders Squarepusher and Aphex Twin, ie. immensely talented, off-the-wall electronic geniuses. He’s been through a number of aliases since he burst onto the scene in the early 90s, including Wagon Christ — which he used for his breakthrough album ‘Phat Lab Nightmare’ on Rising High — Plug, Kerrier District, Amen Andrews and Spac Hand Luke, and around the Millennium embarked on a project with legendary slide guitar bluesman BJ Cole. Latterly, he’s been collaborating with Aphex Twin and making and playing ‘acid disco’ or — as this exclusive podcast showcases superbly — classic old skool hardcore.
