When the retro-minded Louisville, Kentucky, three-piece VHS or Beta popped into indie consciousness with its instrumental, disco-rock hybrid debut Le Funk (2002), it was notable perhaps only because of its prescient anticipation of the imminent indie-dance wave that soon uncrossed the arms of a nation of hipsters. The band's Astralwerks follow-up, 2004's Night on Fire, retooled disco into the disco-punk it may have had a hand in creating, and though labeling them Johnny-come-latelys might have been factually inaccurate, it really didn't matter because there just weren't any tunes. Buzz and favorable zeitgeist were probably VHS or Beta's only points of interest.
