The group was originally created in middle-1996 with a turntable wizard referred to as the Albino Priest, a Leeds indigenous who worked in the Tower Information in London’s Piccadilly Circus, and vocalist Wrekked Teach. The duo steadily added members through the year, most of whom required absurd nicknames — key pad participant Sheriff Jon Rock, bassist A One Man Masses Known as Gentile, engineer the countless Tentacles and a drummer called the Slammer. Lo Fidelity Allstars started recording and delivered a demonstration tape to Skint label-boss Damian Harris; after Harris noticed them play live, he authorized them. The group’s 1st three singles for Skint had been “Kool Roc Bass,” “Disco Machine Weapon” and “Eyesight Incision,” which made an appearance during 1997 (simply in the peak of big-beat frenzy in Britain thanks to latest produces by Fatboy Slim and Bentley Tempo Ace). The Lo Fi debut recording How exactly to Operate having a Blown Brain adopted in 1998. By the finish of the entire year, Wrekked Teach had remaining the band due to artistic variations; Albino Priest required his place as the band’s nominal frontman. The blend album On to the floor at the Shop adopted in 2000, and Lo Fidelity Allstars delivered their second studio room record, YOU SHOULDN’T BE Afraid of Like, in early 2002.
