    saw tub ring last night, so it's going to be "the great filter" over and over and over for a few days.
    an example:
    when the crash happened
  1.  (1327.24)
    PANIC AT THE DISCO-fever you cant sweat out
    FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND-seven ways to scream your name

    pop music today, thank you very much.

    I found a free online Nadja single

    the B-side (Numb) is MASSIVE!!! Set phasers to 20minutes of opiate sun over the snow stun!
    Nadja - Numb (Base Fluid Single B-side)

    I literally cannot listen to the new Silver Mt Zion all the way through. It's like having my brain sandpapered. It's fucking jazz-folk. And Efrim whatsisname's voice has, over the years, gone from "well, bless him, he's trying" to mildly irritating to oh my god I want to hurt you SO MUCH. And he's gotten the last of my money, until he either learns to shut up or learns how to sing. And he and his crew knock off the jazz improv bollocks.

    Rob Gretton is quoted as once saying: "Jazz musicians enjoy themselves more than anyone listening to them does."

    HATRED SURGE/ENDLESS BLOCKADE split 12" (HS-grind violence, EB-sludge destruction)
    KUNG FU RICK-fragments of past time discography (chicago grind terror)
    CHICAGO'S ON FIRE AGAIN compl 7" (ten of the best bands from chi town circa 2001! crucial hardcore/grind)
    whoops! looks like the pop music thing didnt last long...

    The other tidbit that I downloaded on a whim and found myself laughing my ass off at is from legendary DJ Danny Tenaglia's newest release "Tourism", a cover of the Front 242 classic "Headhunter":


    It's a passable version (a little sugar coated), but given that he obviously built his version to play well in the gay clubs in New York, it emphasizes the whole "get the MAN" aspect of the song. Nothing wrong with that, but it's just interesting to see industrial spun that way.

    Of course, Nitzer Ebb was never shy about admitting that their whole "I'm sweaty and beating on metal" image was absolutely geared towards making boys dance. Same with D.A.F. Most industrial clubs I've ever frequented to seemed more interested in projecting the "Industrial=macho" vibe.

    This morning, an odd mix of Vienna Teng (Blue Caravan) and Jamshied Sharifi (Bid-E Majnum) is all that is keeping me sane.

    Scotland's Triptych festival lineup has just been announced.

    There is a player at the bottom of Triptych's Website where you can have a listen to artists who played at previous festivals.


    Oh! I'm currently listening to Kitchen Cynics, I bought his tune a day 12 cd set.

    I just spent a week in Sherwood Forest holdiaying with my wife and daughter and on the seccnd day there found out my nan died, so i spent the week cycling around Centre Parc on my own listening to the following:

    dust. - Monainanexqusitewallflower (from a Warren myspace recommendation, which at an hour and a bit in length, became my most listened to song last year...)
    the Akira, 2001 A Space Oddesy (spelling?) and Sunshine soundtracks
    Portishead - Portishead
    A selection of Dropkick Murphy's
    The Vampire Weekend album (which title escapes me)

    And Crazy by Patsy Cline,which i found out was one of my nan's all time favourites. It made me laugh and cry because my dad demanded me and three of my friends sing this at karaoke for him on his birthday three years ago...

    @Tacopunch, thats track is really really reall fucking awesome, is it downloadable?????

    Turns out my nan was 'Jitterbug' Queen of Gillingham, sometime in the 50's, which was a weird thing to learn

    if you liked nadja, you should check out aidan baker's solo guitar ambient stuff. particularly if you also like tim hecker, fennesz and richard pinhas.

    I was always kinda surprised by how well most mid-nineties industrial went down with the Britpop kids back then.
    I'd regularly be dropping both Headhunter and Animal, alongside Ministry, Nitzer Ebb and NIN, nestling up to Oasis & Blur, and they'd all pack the dancefloor.
    Still cracking tunes as well.
    Some of these reworkings just make me a little sad, although I'd be interested in hearing the Tenaglia version of Headhunter.
    Not a million miles away, Utah Saints have just had a top twenty over here with a re-working of their Kate Bush-sampling Something Good, which is almost identical to the original, but uses an awful lot of industrial conventions.
