The aim of this mix was to put together a collection of tracks which represented the darker and rhythmic side of my recent listening habits, which in turn has also been infecting some of my recent recordings. There are tracks from long time favourites like Coil, Whitehouse, Shackleton, Pan Sonic, Severed Heads and relatively recent discoveries like Call Back the Giants and Traversable Wormhole.
There's also a bit of tongue-in-cheek post-industrial miserablism thrown in for good measure--a nod to the fact that I have been possibly living in denial about being a goth at heart for many years, thanks to that world having a hand in nurturing my interest in experimental music and noise in my late teenage years. I hope you'll take in the wry way it was intended and enjoy-- with a rather large pinch of salt at hand.
