Hellfish & Producer * Contant Mutation (cd 2000 planet-mu records)

Jiha! I have found myself a new Hellfish & Producer cd. An older one this time. “Constant Mutation” may be a little less experimental than the other two cds that I have (see elsewhere), but this is only a little. The very positive side about this, is that there is more room for violent and […]

Hellfish & Producer * No Mistakes Allowed (cd 2000 highborn)

Hell(fish) yeah! There is more of Hellfish and Producer on cd than I knew! Here we have a cd on with Hellfish and Producer remixed tracks, or other artists mixed their tracks. The result is an extremely loud tekno album with less experimental interludes than on ‘normal’ albums. Straightforward, fast, earcracking tekno that is a […]

Hellfish * Meat Machine Broadcast System (cd 2001 planet mu records)

I read that Hellfish is one of the favourite acts when Richard D. James (Aphex Twin) is playing one of his violent DJ-sets. As far as I know Hellfish has released a few 12″s and one “Hellfish & Producer” cd before this one and I never heard any of these releases. “Meat Machine Broadcast System” […]

Hellfish and Producer * Bastard Sonz Of Rave (cd 2002 planet mu records ltd.)

This duo is probably the most interesting coming from the techno scene that has reached my ears. Over half a year ago I reviewed Hellfish’s excellent solo cd called “Meat Machine Broadcast System” and in the meantime I found out that there are a couple of Hellfish and Producer cds, at least one DJ Producer […]

Hellfish * One Man Sonic Attack (cd 2005 planet-mu)

The mp3s on the Planet Mu site sure did their job. With 2 mins of every track I thought I had enough music of this album to review it (…) but at the same time I wanted to hear the rest of the music too, so I got myself a copy. “One Man Sonic Attack” […]

Wave Gotik Treffen 2016

The first time I went to the Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig, was the disastrous 9th edition in the year 2000. It took a couple of years before I went again. Recent years I went annually. The WGT is so big and varried that there is a lot to see even for me. I have […]

Still an addict

Not much music reviews recently, but I am as much a music addict as I used to be. It is just that I do not run into new things that I really like very often. I listen to a variety of music styles nowadays. My ‘usual’ or ‘old’ scenes do not present all that many […]

Consumer Electronics vs Sleaford Mods

I have known the name Consumer Electronics for a long time. ‘Some old power electronics project, probably sounding like Whitehouse and Merzbow’, I thought, so I never paid much attention. Recently I am digging through the old industrial past and Consumer Electronics proved to be even older than I thought. I listened to “Estuary English” […]

Last stories


I like vinyl, but I seldom buy it since I seldom play it. 7″s I do have quite a few though. This is partly because before the internet 7″s were a cheap way to get to know new music and of course 7″s are sometimes fairly exclusive releases. Here come a few covers. The scans […]

A little peek into early industrial

Recently I have been reading some books about the history of industrial music. “Assimilate“, “Industrial Evolution” and “England’s Hidden Reverse” (not yet finished when I write this). “Assimilate” starts with the early scenes of Northern England, Berlin and San Francisco, but soon speaks only of relatively popular bands and projects. “Industrial Evolution” focusses on the […]

My early days in dark music

It is funny how memory works. When somebody would ask me about my musical background I would start with something like the following. My father has a fairly big vinyl collection and a varried taste, so from an early age I encountered all kinds of different music. As a youngster I went to popfestivals and […]
