    I couldn't give a shit less about anything SPK besides 'Zamia Lehmanni', but that one is a real beauty. Especially 'Palms Crossed in Sorrow'!

    @Cobrame - if you prefer Greame's film music, i guess you should give a try to Zemia Lehmanni. It's SPK last album and it's much closer to ambient than industrial as their early albums.

    The film work of Graeme Revell brought me here. Radically different style. While Revell's film work like 'Rad Planet', 'The Crow', 'The Craft' (all of which I recommend) are rather accessible, SPK is highly challenging to listen to. To my ears SPK is more musical sound design than music in the traditional sense. I'll see about checking out more of their work though.

    Razielek, thanx for a good answer and tips on the book. Now i've read it. Yet I'm not fully agree with a book's content, it was quite interesting to look on a subject from another view.

    очень зажигательно будет глушить Вас под Ramleh, fistfuck разумеется. думаю, с хуесосанием, как и с рыбой, у /нормальных мужиков/ проблем быть не должно. сосите, глушите, коли руки растут как надо. проблема может быть только с мелководным тупизмом.

    Очень зажитаельными получились некоторые альбомы, не первые, разумеется. [2]

    Кто там блядь ниже пишет хуесосы. Ебать кароче ничего не ясно куда относить эту группу. Самое главное, что можно понять из этого всего так это куда и зачем. Лично я глушил рыбу этой темой. Главное комбик нормально собрать, но у меня проблем с этим нет. У нормального мужика руки откуда надо растут. Проблема может быть только с подводным микрофоном. Лично я использовал пакеты для мусора.

    I have this book and yes I read it. Did you read "Assimilate" by Alexander Reed? There is nice explanation of ideas behind their "metal dance" which was at the same time commercial move, concious move and - yes - transgression. Yet I get the point absolutely - it was completelty different music and content.

    Razielek, I do agree with you. But, you know, first SPK's acts were more like |guerrilla movement| from art and less like |music band| so morphing into customary synthpop was not that bad at all, but if you ever read their interview in REsearch or their 'Post Industrial Strategy' you should probably understand that the origins of SPK name was the one thing fool of extremism ideology and cheesy 'junkelized' music after 83 is completely another.
