2. Dez. 2009, 15:32 von SapilaDark Sarcasm is a very good band, in an ambiguous way, which essentially means that you might not like it. However, it's the coolest music in the world (besides Evein Major's remix of Corvin Dalek's Pornoground). Naturally, you might get mildly intimidated at first...
The band was formed in 1986 and broke up in 1988. They only released a posthumous self-titled 7" with 6 songs on the hardcore labels Gravity Records and Vinyl Communications in 1992. The sounds on the 7" range from evil thrash to awesome rock, with a hardcore edge. It's all very good. Conversely, the mix is not that good, and the band refused to give any money to Vinyl Communications for the release. This ended with the label releasing it anyway and with the band members having to buy their copies from record stores. Quite a piece of information huh?
Additiononally, Dark Sarcasm also serves as a historical curiosity, as the band featured people who would later become founders or members of (kind of) dull yet…

11. Okt. 2007, 21:21 von DonSiSiOn a other Profile I got the Idea to create a list of all the groups which were important for me during a period of time.
I thought before I started, easy job but when I started to create the list I immediately saw the difficulties.
I didn’t had my records with me, :o(
( still crying that there a lonely in a box ) and to put a date when something started.
Some of the groups I knew before, but then there didn’t had a big impact on my listening attitude.
Other I could put every year on the list like Hawkwind :o)
The solo Projects I didn’t put on the list because most of the time I follow the solo careers if it is interesting.
With Fripp and Bjoerk it was the other way around. I knew the work which there groups before, but I hardly listened to them.
Funny after I look at the list in the end I was quit surprised because I always thought I'm a bit to conservative in music but actually I always kept a bit track what's going on

30. Dez. 2005, 15:52 von eltonitoI was just pondering how interesting it would be if Last.fm allowed me to donate 1 cent for each listen of a song directly to the band via their tracking. I know, I know... it sounds alarmingly pro-RIAA of me, but I was thinking specifically of the band A Minor Forest. If their songs were shorter (ala New Brutalism) they would easily be the most played band on my list. A Minor Forest weren't ever "popular" and probably never made much money off what I consider to be one of the best albums - Flemish Altruism: Constituent Parts 1993-1996. It hasn't left my CD changer in years and I burned a backup copy to transport out of the house so I wouldn't lose the original. Outside of Scrobbler tracking, it's easily the most listened to CD I have.
In my opinion Flemish Altruism is right up there with Spiderland or White Light/White Heat. These albums represent a mind blowingly expansive and cathartic listening experience that completely changes the way you think of and feel about music. …
