Anybody like this genre? It seems pretty underrated considering closely related bands like Throbbing Gristle and Coil are name dropped loads around here.
I'm talking bands like Skinny Puppy, Nitzer Ebb, Front 242, Front Line Assembly, Parade Ground, Portion Control, Download etc...
Noise heads should explore Download in particular. There is also a Skinny Puppy/Throbbing Gristle noise jam called 'Puppy Gristle' you should seek out if you like that kind of thing.
So yeah, where is the love? I remember DiS did a very comprehensive article on industrial recently -which was great for the most part - but totally missed out this era, instead opting for coverage of bands like Cold Cave and Liars :s
