Video Friday: The Infesticons – Hero Theme

This post is also available in: German

Another older one from the Year 2000, Hero Theme taken from the Album Gun Hill Road by The Infesticons. The artist behind The Infesticons is Mike Ladd who collaborates with various well known artists like EL-P, Saul Williams or the Antipop Consortium.

Gun Hill Road is a concept album and tells the story of the epic battle in New York City between the Infesticons (the good-meaning-good guys, basically) and the Majesticons (jiggy automatons intent on robbing the world of reality). It’s a dirty, dangerous battle (as battle’s tend to be) and the troops have been rallied in the mind of one man.

The Album is one of the earlier releases on Big Dada Recordings which is the hip-hop centric imprint of the record label Ninja Tune. It is also the beginning of an trilogy evolving around the conflict which has been closed earlier this year (7 Years  after the second part The Majesticons – “Beauty Party” ) with the release of Bedford Park.
