Marnie: “Crystal World”
More quality electronic pop with a Glasgow connection. Ladytron’s Helen Marnie went to Iceland to record a solo album which turned out to be just as beautiful, melancholic, melodic and downright impressive as any good Ladytron album.
Die Krupps: “Machinists of Joy”
A band I used to love in the early/mid 90:s and I did what I could to support them back then. I have co-organised concerts with them twice as well as put them on the front page of the printed Release. Old pros in mint condition.
Skinny Puppy: “Weapon”
I have loved the “Remission” bodypop sound since the first day I heard it and for some reason it has almost never been reproduced – neither by Skinny Puppy nor by others – so I embrace this retro trip and update of the very first Puppy sound picture.
Their Gothenburg show was really something, full of energy and with a special light show created by the local organizers.
Great to finally see Gabi and Robert in Gothenburg and they were in a good mood. One of the historically most important bands in the Gothenburg EBM scene.
I had almost given up on the (formerly) best band in the world so I am so relieved they did not make a fool of themselves this time. Far from the golden years concerts but I really enjoyed many of the songs, like “But Not Tonight”, and the stage show.
That’s what I call kick-starting a career.
Front Line Assembly side project started in style.
