What foresight to name your band I Am The World Trade Center before the events of 9/11. Of course, everyone is going to assume you named it that after the event and are capitalizing on the name. I did.
But, they were apparently around two years prior, which makes sense, because their sound is so firmly rooted in the catalog of successful 1980s New Order singles. The band are two people – Daniel Geller and Amy Dykes – who rely much on Geller’s laptop as the source of the music.
The song on their MySpace page – “Future Sightings” – isn’t as compelling as the song Dancing Alone, which is featured on the Kindercore Records website (the record label started by Geller).
Here’s their video for “No Expectations.”
Check out the cover of the record that opens in the beginning. If I’m not mistaken, that’s the cover for the New Order single “World In Motion,”
which was also written for the 1990 England World Cup team, if I’m not mistaken (it sure sounded like it – regarded to be one of their worst songs ever).
