Festival Kinetik v4.0 – Phase 02: Friday – Montreal – 20-May 2011

After a day exploring areas out of downtown Montreal (and having the wonder that is poutine from La Banquise), it was back to Metropolis for another evening of industrial music. And the Friday line-up was a pretty heavy duty one, too – including the two British acts on the bill. Read more “Festival Kinetik v4.0 – Phase 02: Friday – Montreal – 20-May 2011”

Tuesday Ten: 109: Atomic

Hearing one of these tracks (Nena, since you ask) at, of all places, a friend’s wedding reception, got me thinking about songs about nuclear war or nuclear weapons – and not to mention that the past week saw the 65th anniversary of the only two uses of such weapons in anger (over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, of course).

Infest 2006 – University of Bradford – 25-27 August 2006

Infest has become, in the now seven years that I have attended, the one thing that gets pencilled in first for each year no matter what. It doesn’t really matter who is playing, I know that whether I like the bands or not I’ll have a blast as most of my friends made across the country (and sometimes beyond) will all be there.
