Posted: August 8th, 2004, by Chris H

One of the good/bad things about living somewhere that has lots of good stuff going on is that sometimes there’s no reason to do something because other folk are already doing it very. Like miso. Why would I want to start up a regular electro night when they are already bringing up all the acts I want to see?

Last night they had Marcia Blaine School for Girls and Isan playing. Both playing electronica that sounds too much like fields to have been created digitally. MBSG had a mix of styles and tempos and Isan a vast array of Korgasmic melodies. So good I forgot how hot and stuffy the Note was.

Chris was hit by a brick as a child and lost the popular culture part of his brain. This affliction means he is only able to listen to obscure japanese noise bands and watch films with overtly complex storylines. His other interests include skulking, editing documents, taunting policemen and entering undecipherable handwriting contests. He lives in an enormous underground laboratory where he spends many hours trying to un-invent television.
