There are few truly unique musical artists, but the music made by Italian producer Victor Love as MASTER BOOT RECORD arguably exists in a category of its own. Fans of that music were finally able to see the full live band in all of its CRT and chiptune glory throughout Europe in February. Those in attendance witnessed guitarist Edoardo Taddei’s tremendous lead guitar playing, which has been put on display in a newly released guitar performance for “ANSI.SYS” from the Floppy Disk Overdrive album. Watch the video now HERE.
Founder/producer Victor Love adds: “The live sound of MASTER BOOT RECORD is the result of combining synth guitars and chiptune leads from studio album written by myself via MIDI with live performed guitars playing in sync with them. This is especially challenging for lead guitar parts that aren’t written according to natural guitar playing positions. By combining synthesizers and real instruments (baritone guitar, lead guitar and drums) the live show of MBR is a different experience from the studio albums that are instead 100% synthesized.“
Additionally, live videos from the tour have been appearing on YouTube, including a performance of “IRQ 2 CASCADE” from Nantes, France on the band’s official channel HERE.

“You can SPREAD THE CODE by sharing the events and inviting your friends. We really need all your support, especially in this historical moment when touring has become extremely difficult.“
“Don’t forget to bring at least 4MB of ram to run Doom and be ready for a live firmware update. We’ll bring the floppy disks.“
