Who listens to nerd rap?


I listened to a couple of the so called nerdcore rappers after a story on said subject appeared on /.. While some of them seemed to need some technical assistance, and some of it was just silly, I found ytcracker to actually be rather good. At first it was just funny to hear, but then I discovered myself wanting to listen to it some more. Now I am a fan of his music, I feel that it is somewhat inspirational. Does anybody else here like it, or have I really gone off the deep end this time?

DIVO ??

sound very familiar , is it during the 80s , i mean during that time of new wave music like culture club , duran duran , japan , utravox and others , i think i got their cassettes , but just can't find it , maybe had dumped them together with all those cassettes that can't play properly now , cassattes can't really stay healthy long enough , after some searching on the net , came across this song Dr. Detriot , i think this was one of their hit song(or album??) , am i right ?? i'm still not sure of it though ...

furthermore i can still remember this Our House by Madness , guess also from that era , and that music group which got that gypsy image , can still remember some of the tunes but can't remember the name of that group ...

love the 80s , everything got mixed-up and just went for it and listened ...
