Arpanet

Arpanet landed on Air's Record Makers label in 2002 with Wireless Internet, an electro-techno concept record distributed by Virgin in the U.K. Rumors of the group's ties to the mysterious Detroit-area group Dopplereffekt ran rampant prior to the album's release and the album's overall sound (combined with the fact that it was associated with Dataphysix) all but exposed the obvious connection. Kraftwerk and Cybotron-inspired musical motifs collided with creepy, tension-riddled tones that evoked scores to '80s films directed by Ken Russell and John Carpenter. Inspired by the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (or ARPANET), Wireless Internet envisaged the time when every human will be able to interface with a supercomputer via a hand-held device. ~ Andy Kellman
