Klęska urodzaju bywa gorsza niż susza. Bo szkoda wielu piosenek, które w top 50 mogłyby się spokojnie znaleźć i tak zabrakło roztańczonej, świetnej piosenki Juvelen, udanego mariażu Massive Attack i geniusza muzyki Damona Albarna, zakręconej do granic możliwości White Flight (polecam Listoholikowi), magików shoegaze’u z The Depreciation Guild, czy fantastycznie roztańczonego Bag Raiders, przesympatycznej piosenki Clinic i wielu innych. Natomiast pierwsza piątka to po prostu masakra, same rodzynki, a Twin Shadow i Active Child to rzeczy epokowe.
Out 19 2010, 20h42 por amodelofcontrolThis week, my Tuesday Ten is a bit later than usual, but still on a Tuesday. It's all about bands you probably haven't heard of. Of course, there are some of you that have. Hence the probably. Then again, if you know me well enough, you might well have heard me carp on about a few of these bands at least once.
Still, maybe you might find something new that you like here. If not, maybe I'll do this with another ten bands sometime. And I'd love to know your suggestions for something I might like (see the end).
Listen to: Gun Lover, Parasite Mine
A Chicago industrial band that have remained a somewhat underground band throughout their career, which has always remained something of a mystery to me. Perhaps it's the sheer aggression, or the fact that their sound frequently falls between the two stools of industrial and metal. Calling their latest album Psycho the Rapist probably didn't help, either. Despite the apparent lack of name recognition (at least outside of the US)…

Mar 25 2008, 19h06 por amodelofcontrolI haven't done one in a while, so here we go again. And this week's is all the fault of Infest, really - and more to the point their announcements last week.
So what am I looking at this week? My favourite 80s albums. When I started thinking about this one, I wasn't sure that I had enough 80s albums to be able to decide, but as it turns out I have far more than I first thought - and indeed I had to whittle this list down to have just ten. I'm going to be crossing genres more than usual perhaps, here...
Front by Front
I'll start with the obvious, perhaps. It's amazing, really. This album is now twenty years old, and still sounds like the future. Legions of EBM/industrial acts have tried to follow this, and no-one has really come that close. It is stuffed with storming dancefloor tracks (the evergreen Headhunter V3.0 [video], obviously and Im Rhythmus Bleiben, for starters) and electronic experimentation (things like Blend The Strengths), and the whole thing is bulletproof. …

Mar 3 2006, 9h26 por ProgbearBased in Berlin, but led by the Australian Klimek clan (Alf and Jayney on vocals and Johnny on bass), The Other Ones are probably best known for their two singles, the brassy “Holiday” and the anthemic “We Are What We Are”, both of which feature Jayney on lead vocals. The production is very much of its time, with big drums, tinny Yamaha DX7 brass/bell sounds and voice samples galore. Still, the melody manages to shine through the terribly dated production from time to time.
Songs with Alf singing lead tend to sound like the Thompson Twins, save for his sung-spoken part on “Holiday”, on which he seems to be aping The B52's Fred Schneider, though winds up sounding more like Stan Ridgway. Still, he does provide the album with two of its more memorable tunes: the driving “All The Love” (not the Kate Bush tune) and the falsetto “It Makes Me Higher”.
As far as 80’s “originally released on CD, but never reissued” rarities go, this is nowhere near as enticing as the sublime The Circle and the Square by Red Box…
