I was having a look on YouTube this morning and found this video posting, and I thought, “my good friend Chris might like this”. So, this one is for you, Chris.
I then fed the band through one of my ‘patent pending’ listening suggestion procedures and, voila.
So, here is the list I ended up with. It seems that some of the choices are the slightly more accessible releases by the bands in question, but some are not.
- Throbbing Gristle – 20 Jazz Funk Greats
- Psychic TV – Force The Hand Of Chance
- SPK – Machine Age Voodoo
- Coil – Love’s Secret Domain
- Monte Cazazza – Power vs. Wisdom
- Nurse With Wound – Chance Meeting
- NON – Pagan Musak
- Whitehouse – Erector
- Cabaret Voltaire – Red Mecca
- Test Dept. – Beating the Retreat
Noticing that Coil had made the list I could not help but track down their chilling rendition/video of Tainted Love.
And don’t forget SPK’s metal-bashing performance of Metal Dance on The Tube.
I suppose it’s time to Force The Hand Of Chance with another Message From Thee Temple.
