Cracking piece from K-Punk on the industrial debate.
Great analysis of the typology of industrial music.
“As for whether they are a joke group, it seems to me that they are and they aren’t. And it’s a particularly disturbing joke…”
This gave me pause. I’ve never given any thought to the idea that Whitehouse should be taken seriously. K-Punk seems to be suggesting that there’s actually some real content in Whitehouse. Good god. Does this mean I can’t take the piss out of them at random any more? Shit.
> ‘Power Electronics’ strikes me as a better label than industrial for them.
I’ve always loved the term Power Electronics. Trips really nicely off the tongue. It would be a really great combination of Tackhead’s Housebuilding, Orbital’s Impact USA and Psychick TV’s Unclean. I wonder if anyone’s done anything like that?
