I can’t recall where this one first came up, but it might have been thanks to hearing a song that triggered the thought. Anyway, this week is about nothing.
Back to normal on the Friday posts, then, which has evolved over time but remains, at the core, a roundup of (relevant to this site) new and upcoming music, a […]
Into 2022 and the cold, grey January, and on the first Friday of 2022, it is time for my traditional round-up of what we know about (relevant) new music coming […]
Completing the process of wrapping up the last decade before it disappears too far into the rearview mirror, this is the last part of the best tracks of the 2010s. […]
We’re continuing our journey through the a-z of industrial with a second look at the letter M.
Everyone has someone, I suspect, that they loved and lost, or loved without ever being able to express it properly. I certainly have in the distant past but have no […]
Back in the mists of time, there used to be a steady stream of all-day “festival” events in the London goth/industrial scene. There was Gotham, there was Black Celebration, and […]
