MMMM.. I remember my first 242 concert, I was a teenager, and we showed up an hour early. We were right in front of the stage, against the barrier. We almost got crushed.

My 1st concert crush was Skinny Puppy Too Dark Park in NYC. Was right up front but a couple people between me and the stage and the surge picked me up off the ground. Didn't feel the floor beneath my feet for like 15 minutes.
After that I moved back to the edge of the pit. Then I got kicked in the head by a crowd surfer so hard I had blood running all down my face. After that I made my way to the left side to help my friend who was having a bad acid trip and no sooner did I get there the panic started and everyone went running for the doors and trampling anybody who got in the way. Being off to the side it was safer and you had the wall for leverage for pushing back against the masses.

Then after all that mayhem we got to the after party and here I am trying to have conversations with Cevin and Dwayne with blood running down my face and Ogre hitting on my girlfriend.

By the time we made it to the 1st rest area on the NJT heading back to Philthy we were all sorts of stressed and weirded out and thought people were going to jump from the shadows and hack us up with knives. So we rode the rest of the way home listening to Cocteau Twins Heaven or Las Vegas on repeat the entire way to try and ease back the fear. Especially since the acid tripper was driving.

Ahhh… the good old days.
Skinny Puppy Too Dark Park was your first show? That is freaking awesome! You started at the top of the mountain.

I'd been to alot of shows by then. My 1st concert was the Stray Cats at age 14. But 2DP was the 1st show I'd seen that had such a profound psychological effect on me and the 1st show where I witnessed a mass panic. Quite an experience.

But yeah, the good old days......
The world has moved on much to its own detriment.

A testament to my love of Prometheus Burning. After having all of their albums on CD get thrown away, I ponied up for their discography on BandCamp. I know they're not for everybody, but I god do I love their music. Wish they were still around.

Yes it makes googling info on the band a PITA because all the results are for FLA instead lol
For some reason I thought this band had been around longer than it has.

That is heavy as hell.

My first experience was at a Prodigy Gig. Very similar to you, my friend got accidentally kicked in the head by a crowd surfer and it broke his glasses so he couldn’t see properly. I got squashed between two huge guys and they were covered in sweat and seemed like they hadn’t washed in days it was horrendous- my feet were off the ground and I couldn’t breathe. The whole crowd surged forward and it was extremely scary. Ironically it was during their track “Breathe” that I was most worried that I couldn’t breathe. They stopped the show at this point because of the crush at the front. I’ve never felt so relieved in my life - they saved a few people from injury i am sure of that.

Once they got the crowd under control, they restarted the show with their track “Smack my Bitch Up”.

So I decided I was either fully in or out at this point. As the track was on its intro... I ran to the bar at the back, bought a pint of cider, downed it in one go and ran back into the mosh pit.

I came out of that an hour later with only half of a T-shirt left, covered in blood, sweat and bruises and sporting the most intense adrenaline rush I’ve ever had.

I didn’t take any substances then, but I didn’t really need to. It was only when I went to club nights a few years later where the music wasn’t as hard edged or was very repetitive that I decided to get off my head just to enjoy the sound of a 4/4 kick drum looping for 8 hours.

I do miss going to gigs like that sometimes.

Probably couldn’t do it now though. I’d be like “little ****s bumping into me leave me alone!!! I just want to be at home in my Man Cave getting high and making patches on my synths damn it!”

Sounds like a real eye opening experience. Although the crushed by big sweaty Dudes not so much. I had a hot chick in front of me when I got crushed. The guy behind me had metal spike all over his leather coat though. A bit of pain to go with the pleasure I suppose.
A romp through the pit certainly gets your pulse up too.
Regarding substances I'm glad I didn't join my tripping friend considering the bad acid being passed out at the show is likely the cause of the panic.

I still go to some rough shows though they're mostly punk shows. There was a bit of moshing at the last Ministry show and really lively pit at the last Buzzcocks show. But with my bad knees and back I prefer to stay on the edge catching out of control moshers and tossing them back in.

Anyway good stuff! Always nice to hear from another wild concert veteran

The King of DeathRock Music is dead

While I'm sure the last thing anyone needs right now is more bad news. One of our founders has passed into the aether. Genesis P-Orridge at age 70 has succumbed to leukaemia.
I am deeply and profoundly hurt by this news and feel nothing but grief in passing it on to you.

Here is a link with further details.

https://www.loudersound.com/news/ind...dge-dead-at-70

I listened to Throbbing Gristle before puberty hit and didn't even know the name of Industrial music. I was a little Punk kid like the one in Suburbia that dies in the end. Later I realized so much more about TG and the new kind of music they birthed along with a small handful of other artistic geniuses.

This is such a sad thing. I don't have words for it.

Instead here's some of my favorites.






Anyway sorry to be the bearer of bad news in these trying times.
Genesis was an immense source of inspiration in both music and in living life, your life as you want to without shame. And the world has lost another great spirit.
Goodbye Genesis.

The music was cool, but am I the only one that was more pulled into Psychic TV by the cultish mythos they'd built up around themselves? Why start a band when you can start a coven?

Sadly I don't know of any recent industrial that does not suck. But did any of you industrial heads get into gabber at all during the early 90s? That's what I grew up with in Rotterdam. As a teen I was completely oblivious of influences that contributed to this sound. Only later I got into EBM & industrial, and discovered Skinny Puppy and Ministry tracks from the late 80s and early 90s. It was amazing to me to discover that great and very hard electronic music was made so early on.

Gabber of course was way more dancefloor oriented, there were no bands with front men, and there was hardly any political message.



I get a kind of similar "twisted fun" vibe from some Revolting Cocks tracks like "Do you think I'm sexy".

Also there are many goa and psytrance producers who love industrial, in fact Youth from Killing Joke was kind of a mentor to the beginning goa scene with his Butterfly Records label.

Here is a mindblowing psytrance track by Syb Unity Nettwerk Experience from their 1997 "Space Puppy" EP (the references in the names are obvious):

I'm working on a cover Assimilate, but i can't work out the initial sequence. I know what key it's in, but the getting the correct sound is killing me. I think it's just a 4/4 sequence with panning delay to give it life. But no matter what i do i just can't get it correct and it's driving me crazy.

Sounds like an ESQ-1. I had one until I got a Prophet VS, which does that type of sound as well.

Assimilate came out in 85, the ESQ-1 came out in 86,so it can't be that. I have ESQ-1 and can't get that sound though. But it's difficult to hear what it really sounds like since there's so much damn delay.

Then perhaps it is an 8 bit digital delay making the "digital analog" grainy sound. I mean, I know it is just a note on the bass drum, and the rest delay. Or it could be an analog sampled into a Mirage, with a delay on it.

But I can make that sound with my Prophet VS with no problem.
