don't know if i've posted this before but prester jane of D&D, who writes about cults and was raised in one, ended up in an otherkin doomsday cult at one point that worshiped VNV nation, which makes sense.

New VNV song is... alright. It's not amazing, but it's also a lot better than I was expecting.

Better than every song on Transnational.

Hell, I kinda think it's their best in (when was Empires released now again) almost 20 years (gently caress I'm old). VNV Nations best stuff has always been something I could easily imagine an arena full of drunken football fans chanting.

PS. Check out Tom Shear's (of Assemblage 23) new side project Helix. I'm really digging it. Quite a bit different from his usual stuff.

It's VNV Nation. It's alright.

I wasn't around yet at the time but I think so, and I think he was also a goon.

Because of that drat Swede, Eskil from Covenant, who is doing similar things but better. And well, the real Ronan loves singing about swords, so that part is an accurate simulation!

After I asked, I watched the original Flash video again, and yeah his name is right in the credits. I guess it also didn't occur to me the joke would still be going this much later.

Aw. I'll be seeing Dive in two days at Wavefest here! And Zanias and Agent Side Grinder. Quite curious how the new Agent Side Grinder will be, I haven't paid much attention.

Okay I didn't actually expect Maschinenfest to still be this big so that's pretty awesome.

Also how are mainland Europe venues just so much better at live music events than the UK? Everything from the bar to cloakroom just works better at things I've been to outside the UK.

In the UK it's like you're a burden on the venue for showing up.

Yeah, good turnout last night and it was a great crowd too, everyone seemed very happy to be there. I bailed at like 1 AM but it was still going strong. Got there in time for Control, which was an experience, and stayed for Nullvektor and Iszoloscope who both put on excellent sets. The sound is so good at Turbinenhalle, it seems like no matter who plays there’s never any distortion (beyond that which is intended) and I never feel like I need earplugs.

Further MFest update: by the end of Winterkalte's Saturday headline set I basically wanted to die of exhaustion. Really enjoyed Alarmen, Config.sys, Synapscape, Monolith and Winterkalte today.

I really like how other than the headliner each night, bands all get 45 minutes whether they are big or relatively obscure.

Prop Wash I will find a way to meet you on Sunday!
