Not as rare as their Sexplosion! LP
Thank God the old Wax Trax! disc sounds great
Could be worth the price just for the cover alone
Forgot to mention Chu Ishikawa - I also really like his stuff, though it's primarily instrumental. He did the music for the Tetsuo films (as well as other ShinyA Tsukamoto films). Anyone who likes industrial music and hasn't already seen them should do so at once!
I have a sexplosion cassette tho. that was a pretty cool find
Mine's in a cornfield somewhere in Northern Michigan, car deck ate it
KMFDM is the most accessible and the most fun, MLWTTKK is similar but with samples and psychedelia. I listen to them and Skinny Puppy the most.
Still haven't picked up KMFDM's latest yet.
Ave Maria in particular
Forgot Front 242, "Front by Front" and "06:21:03:11 Up Evil" are solid. The latter was bashed by much of the press for some reason.
Great picks from a great (and perhaps forgotten) band - I realize you were likely just joking about not knowing the reason - but for anyone who didn’t get it, the numbers correlate to the letters of the alphabet.
No, I knew what the title stands for but the album was bashed for the music itself, un-ironically. I don't recall the details though. It doesn't have the same "edge" though as "Front by Front", maybe that was why. I think it sounds more "sophisticated"
"Up Evil" sounds like upheaval, sort of appropriate, and "****" combined with "Up" is a gift to the journalists much like "Shark Sandwich", so there's a possibility that the reviews were jokes themselves
I know it gets a lot of grief amongst fellow Skinny Puppy fans online, but Rabies is still awesome to me. Loved it since it came out and it has aged great.
There is a lot to love on that album; as "an album" it's always felt very cohesive to me. And, I loved what Uncle Al brought to them for that brief time.
Also have been going back again to the old roots of everyone and listening to all early Skinny Puppy, Cabaret Voltaire, Clock DVA, Throbbing Gristle, SPK, etc......a lot of low-tech menace, love it!!
Which was the album that had some sound quality related problems?
The version of Monte Cazazza’s “To Mom on Mothers’ Day” on the 1984 compilation “The Industrial Records Story” has a clearer, far better mix than the 1979 45. Throbbing Gristle provided the backing track, so I think of it as one of my favorite T.G. songs, albeit with a guest vocalist.
Rabies had some mastering problems with I think Noise reduction on cd release. Pretty sure they fixed it on remastering.
I was wondering why it sounded like my cassette
Fixed on the 1998, but unfortunately they added a ton of compression to it
Pretty much pick your poison.
I actually didn't think the 89 sounded that bad.
Another band labeled Industrial that may not fit the genre, Stabbing Westward.
I love industrial,Electro-industrial and EBM.
A few of my favorites from the industrial,,Electro-industrial genre :Skinny Puppy (they are genius in terms of exploring sounds and creativity,they combined aggression and beauty at the same time,all their album from Remission and bites up to last rights included are amazing albums
Front Line Assembly, Cabaret Voltaire,Laibach,Einstürzende Neubauten,KMFDM
Hey Cory, nice to come back,how are you doing?
Who discovered the problems in Rabies 89 cd?
skinny puppy - Rabies remastered / original
I love Kmfdm, F.LA and ministry ,especially Twitch and land of Rape and Honey, the Twelve Inch Singles (1981-1984)cd also very cool .Enjoy these live performances
Nice to see you Noomi!
Wow, I completely forgot about that thread!
Apparently we ripped it apart!
I think that even Skinny Puppy members didn't discussed so deeply in the problems of Rabies cd like we did LOL
Another golden oldie I dug from my archives is the Detroit-based Final Cut's album "Atonement", re-released as "Atonement v2.0". The best track, "This Is the Way", is lacking from youtube and the band's name makes searching for videos even more difficult because there's some Mac software with the same name. It really takes me back
The only music I've listened to that qualifies as industrial is Nine Inch Nails. I think Trent Reznor is doing film soundtracks now. I wasn't surprised when he called his fans a-holes several times. I had the worst experience of my life at the NIN forum. I sold all my NIN CD's and never looked back.
