The Circular Ruins / Lammergeyer / Nunc Stans

False Mirror


drone on

Aun-"Black Pyramid" (Cyclic Law) Some of this is too noisy for my ears, but some great tracks in the bunch.  Better cosmic experimental guitar/synth stuff can be found on...

Expo 70-"Sonic Messenger" 2CD (Beta Lactam Ring) Fantastic guitar/synthscapes, modern day experimental/ambient Berlin School (no sequencers). 

Move D/Namlook-"Stranger III" (Fax) Very good, much better than the second installment.

Brian mcbride- the effective disconnect: very sotl no surprise there but different than his last solo effort. More like tired or refinement. Film soundtrack.

Deepchord-liumin 2 cd version- the second cd is more of interest to me field recordings Tokyo

False Mirror

NP:
Certamen Golden Children (Syngate) - superb longform Berlin School works, well-executed sequencer music with enough intelligent touches to raise it above mere genre music

Earlier this morning:
Click Click Rorschach Testing (Play It Again Sam) - classic early EBM from a still-underrated group
Karl Bartos 15 Minutes EP - 'course it's Kraftwerk sounding, but damn good nevertheless
Leftfield Leftism - was in the mood for that Lydon track, "Open Up", one of his best non-PiL vocal contributions

I agree about Click Click being underrated.  I've only encountered a few other people who like Click Click. They sorta disappeared, didn't they?

Ah, the good old days... Nitzer Ebb, Front 242, and Click Click on my Walkman!

I read recently that the Walkman is going out of production - but that's apparently only in Japan.

They're always ahead of the curve though...

Mine died a long, long time ago. Probably from performing what I called tape-scratching - before I owned a sampler.

Yeah, back in the day (say, mid-to-late 80s), I really ate up just about all the industrial/EBM/whatever I could get my hands on. Had most releases on labels like Play It Again Sam, Wax Trax, Antler-Subway, Metropolis, etc., etc. Eventually got bored with most of it, but still have F242, Klinik, Cassandra Complex, A Split-Second, X10, Trisomie 21, and a number of others. Never really got into Nitzer, and really got sick of the whole nihilist/misogynist/aural violence of groups like Front Line Assembly, Pig, Borghesia, later Ministry, etc. (Although, strangely enough, just about *all* their side projects — Synaesthesia, Delerium, Intermix, Pro-tech, Noise Unit, Equinox — are excellent, and I still retained & enjoy those recordings/aliases.) Seems like forever ago...

Still love to this day: CabVolt, Skinny Puppy (and all *their* offshoots), later period TG, all Chris/Cosey, etc., so industrial doesn't die — just goes into hibernation.

Actually just ordered today a Click Click (Adrian Smith) side project called Skripglow from their site...no EBM, just dark ambient with the odd percussive values. Smith/Click Click do seem to have disappeared to the dustbin/cutout-bin of history, but their site(s) remain active...some reissues (on CDR) have popped up as well...

Walkmans? Talk about antiques...should have saved every one I had...who knew? :)

How is Olympia? I almost ordered that this week, but figured I'd make sure it wasn't a dud first.
