Profile

Version 4 is the worst thing that could possibly have happened to Discogs.


I'm a (largely former) music journalist who was editor of Sorted magAZine, from 1996 to 2004.

I also DJ in London now and again as Girl (my nickname since I was 17), usually specialising in either old school EBM, retro 80s, industrial, electroclash or delicious mixes of these and other styles (some old sets).

I also have a real life job as an online communications consultant and am a very active trade unionist.

Wantlist:
I'm normally only interested in 12" singles for around UK£3 and LPs for around UK££5, unless I really want something or it's particularly rare. Obviously, postage from outside the UK is an issue.

If there's something in my sale list you want and you've got something from my wantlist, I might be interested in a trade. Please get in touch.

How can you have members of a person? Discogs is a database. Originally it was a group of which Vincent was a member. Then is became a solo project.

Hmmm, it's all a bit late 90s, shades of bands like Hungry Lucy, Collide and Technoir. I was hoping for something more contemporary sounding.

I just saw them tonight. Both Lisa and Brendan were on absolutely top form and the synths were tempered with more live instruments than the last two tours. Absolutely flawless, sublime performance.

This was the year Praga started the Hard Beat series, which is the real sequel to the New Beat series 1-4. This one was clearly an afterthought for the money.

Is it just me or does Icona Pop's I Love It (released two years later) bear strong simularities to this song?

Sever by This Ascension, for example, came out in '97.

Attrition released Étude in '97. And there was an awful lot of ethereal darkwave about in the late 90s (mainly on TESS with CoX and on Projekt).

Tess Records, upon which it was originally released, was a small label that went bust after a few years. Pressing vinyl was totally out of their reach at the time.

I agree, just started listening to it. The previous two were still stuck in the dated futurepop sound, this has reduced that to a minimum and Rogue's vocals sound better than ever.

He reminds me most of NIN, not Skinny Puppy (of whom I'm not really a fan after their early EBM stuff), but it's not a carbon copy.

The Beauty From Thee Beast compilation a year later is similar, but a bit better - including I.C. Water, Andrew Weatherall's remix of United and a remix of Godstar.

Amazing record, really surprising live elements that I haven't heard before on their recordings - free jazz in the first side of the record and rock guitars. Very clear sound and Milan sounds like he was much more active on stage than he is these days!
