What other SP tracks has he DJ'd? Other than the Rome/Warp20 tracks that is.

 

I don't like Fat Controller, too much media exposure ruined the track for me.

 

what do you mean by media exposure? was it in some movie/show or a tv ad that i am not aware of?

Over here every surf clip or skate they would usually put Fat Controller as background music, there was also a video-game show that used it as end credits and I think MTV may have used it for some promos.

Don't ask how I ended up watching Thomas the Tank Engine on YouTube haha. But this could possibly be where the title comes from?

I believe the song predates Thomas The Tank Engine.

 

Also, the video I mentioned:

Actually, the Fat Controller predates Squarepusher! I forgot TTTE goes all the way back to 1984!


Fat Controller seems to be a slang term for a railway controller/boss.


Ah, from Wikipedia: "Fat Controller" is the name of Frostwave's 16-step analogue sequencer midi cv produced by Paul Perry.
