Talk Show Host: 046: beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand

Trying to do a series on British Industrial has actually proven a little more difficult than I perhaps expected, partly my own fault due to issues with time and other commitments. But, following on from Talk Show Host: 043 with ded.pixel, I’m now continuing the series with a band with a near-unpronounceable name for many.

The sun is out, we’re finally edging into what feels like Spring. And in the meantime, I’ve been busy listening to new music.

/Tuesday Ten/464/Tracks of the Month (Aug-21)

We’ve got one last blast of summer here this week, before we begin the tumble down into the cooler climes of Autumn. Clubs seem to be back in full force – of course with restrictions – while some gigs are happening, others still being postponed. None of which is stopping the continuing flood of new […]

/Welcome to the Future/187/Events, Livestreams and new releases 03-Sep 2021

Stay-In-Fest and the Bank Holiday are already in the rearview mirror, and we’re now inching toward autumn, and the usual packed release schedule as things ramp up again. Today I bring you a fully updated events listing, a host of releases today on Bandcamp Friday, and the first of my interviews from Stay-In-Fest fully transcribed. […]

/Welcome to the Future/170/Livestreams and new releases 09-Apr 2021

Bandcamp Friday has been and gone, so it is a bit of a quieter week on the release front this week. In addition, I’ve overhauled the events page in a big way, so see the link further down for that. Livestreams and waiting for new releases seem to be the order of the day, for […]


Onto week three of /Countdown/2019 on, and this week I’m looking at the best albums of the year. As I’m sure I’ve explained before, I treat the “year” as 01-December to 30-November, to allow me a cut-off point, and to allow this to be done and dusted before Christmas so that I can take […]

/Click Click/007/BEAT:CANCER/London/09-Nov 2019

For the last couple of years, one Saturday around this time of year has seen me head to Electrowerkz for the latest London edition of the BEAT:CANCER shows – and indeed take photos of the bands, and write about them too.

/Talk Show Host/054/Numb

There are occasions where a long-dormant artist resurfaces that genuinely surprise. Many bands split up, and in these nostalgic times, you can almost set your watch to them reforming at some point – but Numb is different. Despite being such an important project from their releases back in the nineties, Don Gordon clearly appeared to […]

/Tuesday Ten/357/Tracks of the Month/Jan 2019

In conversations at recent gigs, a number of us have agreed that we’ve been surprised at the sheer amount of new music that has come our way already in 2019. There are a whole host of exciting new releases in February, never mind further beyond that, and already it’s proving difficult to keep up
