Again, a cheating static-image video, but I don’t care, because I’ve been looking for a copy of Boom Boom Satellites’ 11-year-old "4 A Moment Of Silence" for ages. It’s off what I think was their first record, 7 IGNITIONS, which, perversely, remains my favourite.
The bass is a bit dropped-out on this, but it’s not a bad copy.
Tieum & Lenny Dee’s "Microtronic" has been fascinating me all afternoon. Not least because it sets out to just vaporise any possible audience. You can’t dance to it, it’s not Hardcore, it’s not industrial enough for Industrial, it’s not fucking drum’n’bass or jungle no eMusic I do not care if you say it is wash your fucking ears out, and the kid on YouTube who called it "terrorcore" needs to go home to his fucking mummy.
What it is is Bloody Loud. And I don’t know about you, but what I really needed today was something big and alien and metallic and Bloody Loud.
(Note also that, no, it’s not a video, someone just uploaded the track to YouTube with a static image.
This is off the EP that’s also called MICROTRONIC, on the Altern-Hate label.
Taking a thinking day, today. Will probably do a Doomed World pass before midnight, and Twitter’s running in the desktop app, but otherwise my brain is off maps and hunting signposts in foggy and unfamiliar territories.
