Ha, I'm a bigger spotter than Matthew at hollowearth. Mind you, it's an easy mistake to make, early-mid 90s there was a bunch of people who thought that pretty much anything slightly out there, must be the Aphex Twin, because they'd heard something weird, and electronic, and he was the weird electronic guy.

Well, either that or he was so much of a semi-underground cult that you could gain cred in certain circles by claiming you had some sort of rare Aphex track, that was in actual fact, someone else completely. Bonus dodgy spotter points for the taking.


I can sort of see his point about Industrial though. I used to listen to it, but there was always the undercurrent of "Well this is almost what I want, but not quite". I was especially dissapointed when Ministry shifted from almost-EBM to outright heavy metal, and when I found out that the only two Coil tracks I had heard, where in fact, the only ones they'd done that I liked.

I wonder if Al Jourgenson really did urinate on Front 242?

...and I still haven't heard a Throbbing Gristle track I like. I loved Wreckers of Civilisation though.
