I actually got a free copy of the pre-lawsuit Naive straight from KMFDM in the late 90s. They’d just opened their webstore - it was advertised in the booklet for symbols, and if you ordered over a certain value you got free stuff thrown in the box. When my order arrived the tape of Naive was in there.
you ever check out the FLA side project “Pro Tech?” only one album, called “Orbiting Cathedrals.” supposedly Bill Leeb thought of it as a companion to “Flavour of the Weak.” worth a listen
TKK, I haven’t thought about them in a looong time! Now I know I’m listening to this morning.
I din’t know if they made the list but I listened to a lot of Die Krupps when I was a kid.
I’ll send you mine! Love Boris. Merzbow… just doesn’t have enough of a pulse for me. I realize this is a personal failing on my part
is this where I can brag about having the original Skinny Puppy “Last Rights” CD with track indexing errors? No? Ok, I’ll show myself out.
Die Krupps! Yes! I need to go dig out a cd of theirs I’m sure I have one.
TKK is one of my top two favorite bands of all time. Sooooo many songs right up my alley.
I have a few Die Krupps on compilations, but the only album I got of theirs was a tribute to Metallica… eh, wasn’t great except I liked one mix of One.
I interviewed them for Mondo 2000 in the 90s and Jim Marcus and I made an instant connection. We’ve been friends ever since. Amazing, brilliant guy. Have you heard his band GoFight? Some great stuff there.
That Damage Manual “One” ep is excellent! If you haven’t yet, check out the band Murder, Inc. If memory serves, same lineup as the ep but switch out Jah Wobble for Paul Raven. Both industrial scene bass gods.
I so love that TG album cover. Such a master class in false advertising.
i’ve heard of the name… i’ll definitely check 'em out! thanks!
that’s awesome. i picked up all the Go Fight on bandcamp, a few years back (some “pay this totally reasonable amount for their entire catalog” kind of sale thing)… they’re great!
I prefer the one in Salamandrina (1:50):
Nice but it doesn’t capture the same pain and anguish as in Armenia.
Saw Merzbow in Osaka in 2006, when I was living with a host family in Itami attending Konan University in Kobe.
I remember a naked man painting a picture upsidedown with his feet, covered in paint, with a tiny elephant toy sitting on top of his canvas, in a dimly lit room full of red lights, as Masami blasted harsh noise over a crowd of zombielike onlookers entranced by the wall of destruction overwhelming their ears
I still have a flyer from the show too😁
@lorcan_nagle, that is positively…
I’ve always been a huge KMFDM fan
Good stuff, been listening, thanks for posting!
Great list, but I would fault them for omitting early Laibach.
This list takes me back. I was at an SPK gig in Melbourne au one night and the next night was at Talking Heads for their Stop Making Sense tour!!!
It is worth checking out Graeme Revell from SPK’s career in film composition: Sin City, Riddock, Grind House et. al.
Missing from the list was my favorite Australian industrial band Severed Heads. You couldn’t be in a Melbourne club without hearing Dead Eyes Open
