Musicians should pay house visits to their fans in order to escalate their dwelling spaces. Feel your intellectual musings on Facebook aren’t getting through to your crowd? Scared your MP3s aren’t ricocheting off the walls loudly enough? Petrified your precious groupies are slipping into mundanity? Feel your cyber is lacking the men? How do you […]

It is not enough to look at it. It is not enough to join in the song and raise the hands. It is not enough to be someone, or to have a name. Escalation does not mean to be where the action is. Escalation is the action and the reason. Nobody is even allowed to […]

Straftanz. EBM-Elite of West-Hollywood.

This was a travel of a lifetime. We were happy to meet you. This is not the last time our paths crossed. This was just […]

Bullshit Merchandise at the KuFa in Krefeld, Germany.

This T-Shirt states "Care for the environment, keep your scene clean!" The figure, decorated with a flat haircut, popular in Germany's Die-Hard-EBM-Cogwheel-Szene, throws the word "CYBER" into a trashcan. (please advance to the last picture)

Yesterday at the KuFa in Krefeld I saw something seriously upsetting. Some Cogwheel-EBM guy sold T-Shirts that advocate to keep the scene clean from cyber-people.

The method (see pictures) to associate cyber people with Nazis was additionally unsettling, so […]
