Wow, thanks for that guys!

I will check all of these out.

Its funny how guys who once made music with Napalm Death end up making ambient stuff!

Brian Eno.. Heard a lot about him but never really heard his music, will check it out Alan.


It's one of the reasons mick left ND...they didn't like "his direction"...The First Scorn LP is like a mixture of Godflesh, Napalm Death and "Ambience" (lots of dub whigouts at the end of tracks)...I thought it was an amazing departure of the ND sound at the time, but now I listen to it...you can still hear the influence of the blast stuff in it...

blah blah.

PS< "FINAL", is Justin Broadrick's more easily gotten Ambient Stuff..."Slashes (////////)" is ana mazing track, you'd love it (just light piano riffs with droney guitars coming in (9 mins long or so)...

and as if by magic...you can get heaps of Final on his avalanche inc website :

and for experimental electronica...

"alarm will sound plays aphex twin"

Amazon.co.uk: Acoustica: Alarm Will Sound Performs Aphex Twin: Music: Alarm Will Sound

I've just got it, and it's amazing...

they (he?) plays the Druqks lp with an orchestra...sounds fantastic.

Really getting into electro and techno lately. Was on holiday a few weeks ago in Berlin techno city... some wicked clubs.

I think the Alex Smoke album stands up against anything I heard over there though. As an album it totally works, more of a journey, rather than it being a collection of disperate techno tunes.
