In the Nursery appears Cyberware's anniversary compilation.
Cyberware Productions is something as unusual as a Finnish electro record company. Now they celebrate their five year anniversary with the double compilation "Five Years of Electronic Tears". One CD offers the Cyberware artists and one artists licensed to Cyberware for the Scandinavian market. Among the artists included are In the Nursery, Swamp Terrorists, Terminal Choice and the strong debutants Kintetic.

Mesh will tour in Germany in April. In the end of February they will visit Sweden and Norway. Even though Mesh are British, they will only play one gig in their home country in May.
The forthcoming Pig album will, as we reported earlier, be called "Black Brothel". The release has however been delayed due to the fact that Raymond Watts, mr Pig himself, has done some remix work for the labels Wall of Sound, Invisible and Cleopatra. /Kristoffer Noheden
