Did I say delicious? A slip of the tongue. I clearly meant mind warpingly stupid and banal
And who's this you've brought with you? Why, It's The Most Evil Woman in the World. Isn't that amazing!
You really should do something based around the early English industrial scene. It was such a vibrant and interesting time for music, especially in terms of looking at ‘music as magic’. Many of them dabbled in the occult, coupled in some cases with some heavy drugs use. But more importantly, they were trying to push boundaries. Coil, Current 93, Nurse with Wound, Throbbing Gristle… all fascinating musical entities in their own right.
Yeah, but hardly anyone outside of people interested in the genre anyway have heard of that lot, and let's face it, most of the 'music' is pretty much unlistenable.They weren't so much into 'music as magic' as harnessing the energy that was built up in clubs and at gigs. 'Techno-shamanism' and 'Techno-paganism' is generally now taken to mean dodgy witchy-wannabees that simply use online message boards, but at their origins, they really meant 'techno' as in the genre of music and surfing the vibe that was created at raves, or using it to enter shamanic style trance states, for workings that went beyond pure entertainment. So many people have forgotten that, but then, I expect the memories of many of the people who were there are the time are full of all sorts of abscences now.I actually have a synopsis for a comic that's set in this area, and linking it up with the crop circle-making scene. I wrote it when I was a part of all that, but it never got completed, and now I think it might need a few years to mature, in much the same way as Phonogram needed some distance from Britpop.
side note: how is PHONOGRAM selling? I know the early numbers for issue one were obviously fantastic with the second run, but how did issue two go? hopefully like gangbusters!
