    "Industrial" was always more inclusive than most people gave it credit for; I had a huge love affair with all the Nettwerk bands of that time (Moev, Skinny Puppy, Severed Heads, Manufacture) and as a label, Nettwerk was amazingly diverse. Hell, even Sarah McLachlan did her first album there ("Touch"), with a decidedly industrial flavor to it. They had bands like Consolidated (white industrial socially conscious rap), Bel Canto (Cocteau Twins with a stronger drum machine) and Skinny Puppy before they fell into the pit of same sounding albums. Chicago's Wax Trax label was pretty inclusive also, until all the bigger acts got signed away, leaving it a clearing house for all of Al Jourgenson's side projects and any fart he put on vinyl. For me, industrial was my "heavy metal phase", but with enough drum machines to keep things moving.

    And on that note, I got an alert last week that Al did the official theme song for his favorite hockey team, The Chicago Blackhawks. Dig it up on iTunes, even the 30 second sample they provide is worth it for a laugh. Not Ministry's finest moment, but fair play for supporting the home team with a tune.

    You can dl both of the tracks on that naja single at . nadja is on tour right and totally worth heading out for. (dates at )

    And dust. (or now as it's dustperiod) is my (secret) outlet for solo guitar+electronics works. I have some new tunes up at and you can dl some of the other albums as well. I'm glad you like the songs. Mona was a massive movement of sound that fell out of my head one morning and took 3 years to fully flush from my system.

    @ Tacopunch

    Does that mean you're also the Tacopunch who's sick electo mix sets I've been downloading?

    I've just bought a new cd player for my car and the first cd i put into it had Mona burned onto it, and it wedged inside, a wouldn't come out. (This is true), do i now leave it, able only to listen to it and the radio, or buy a new player?

    The Mars Volta: Bedlam in Goliath; like an evil faun turned all of Santana's guitar pedals on, threw him from the top story of a half built tower block and recorded his howls of protest seconds before he makes a pool of blood in the shape of the residents.
    Subtle: a new white
    Black Francis: Svn Fngrs
    Battles: Mirrored

    A bunch of live Tom Petty, which isn't recognizing, for some reason.

    Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band a - 13 Blues For Thirteen Moons . Absolutely awesome sound, guitars drums violas (?), angry angsty vocals; I do believe I shall play this to death. (I see their European tour takes in London but nowhere further north - bastards!)

    Okay, I'm still listening to the new Beat Circus. Haven't had the inspiration to change the CD player... but it is good.

    @ babymole

    The Mae Shi - Hllyh - I love me my spazz nintendo gospel rock albums
    Xrin Arms - Black Horses and Disappearing Stable - yep still
    These New Puritans - Beat Pyramid - I love me by computer enabled post punk
    Eazy E - everything I can for a DJ set this tuesday in Chicago

    Finally found time to listen to the new Meshuggah, very good. Still not received my Silver Mt Zion album, after Warren's comments I'm apprehensive, I've never considered them to have jazz influences, have they done something new on this one?

    Going to listen to the Martriden album in a bit.

    Also been giving Dillinger Escape Plan a second chance, I quite like the new one, Ire Works. Miss Machine was alright, but I still can't see anything in Calculating Infinity. Also all their songs start the same way.

    Also NIN Ghost I-IV and Sikth's 'The Trees are Dead and Dried Out...'.

    Klimek - Dedications

    Came across the Error EP, which Atticus Ross did with one of Bad Religion and the vocalist from Dillinger Escape Plan. It's pretty good, although I'm not sure how good a full album of it would be.
