Europe in 8 Bits Review

The chiptune scene has grown in prominence over the past few years, this is due to a heavy dose of nostalgia but also bands such as Crystal Castles and Anamanguchi, which have brought it to the fore and entered the zietgiest.

Europe in 8 Bits is a documentary that looks at the rise of the scene. The documentary is super informative as it told me a lot about the origins and counterculture; the idea of fighting modernity, actually embracing the past technology but utilising it in new ways as exemplified by the mole man who goes to the dump regularly to collect old material and build new stuff from it. Such dedication is to be praised, really!
