The 'Electronica' Thread
« on: Monday 21 February 2011, 08:08:37 PM »
I wasn't sure if there was a thread on this, and if there isn't I thought one was needed whereby we could discuss all things electronica. Or people could generally give people the heads up on any decent new releases etc.

I'm currently listening to a bit of this  :thup: -



Which inspired the thread.

It would be interesting to know what people's favourite albums and artists are.

If my ears were capable of ejaculating, they would be right now while I have this on.

It's genius. Literally. But all their albums are worth the bother from Autobahn to Electric Café (or Techno Pop as it now seems to have been renamed).

I have a penchant for old electronica myself, glad to know I'm not the only one.   O0






edit: f***ing hell, I killed it 5 posts in.  :-[  I'll find some JM Jarre or Klaus Schulze.

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name
And the corporate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals
This dump never seems to give time for human soul

Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

whats amazing with the likes of neu and kraftwerk was how early they were.

It hardly matters, because they're mint anyway, but I would say they were.

Adore Can and Neu but have struggled to get into Kraftwerk. Need to give them some proper time though.

Love FSOL!  But, they went all psychedelic a few years back.  Not sure what they are up to these days.


Meanwhile...

I love their Amorphous Androgynous stuff. The Isness is a class album.
