10 Thoughts from this evening...

1. Have Zeromancer always sounded shit? Tonight is the first time I've heard them and they really aren't my cup of tea. What type of music would you call them? I thought they were more EBM/Industrial before listening to them but they're more crappy electronic metal.

2. I was so busy sorting out updating my computers anti-virus software that I lost track of time. I was going to have potatoes, pork chops, broccoli with lashings of gravey tonight. Instead I discovered I'd overcooked the potatoes whilst working upstairs and ended up having mashed potatoes by themselves for dinner (no time to cook the other bits by then!). Still, I like mash - but was well in the mood for a nice warm, tasty and filling meal to keep the cold at bay...

3. Project Pitchfork. Love them. Always have done. They've produced some brilliant music over the years, Sadly their forthcoming album isn't conforming to my expectations. Bit shit really if I'm honest.

4. Watched Ghostbusters 1 and 2 over the last couple of nights. One of the things that really struck me was the amount of smoking the characters were doing. Standing around discussing things all puffing away. Wouldn't get that  in a kids film these days.

5. After a year of having an iPod and iTunes I've just brought my first downloaded music - Lily Allens 'The Fear EP'. I feel this could be a slippery slope downhill now I've popped my cherry.

6. Sean and Kara are both great to work with. I'll miss them, Mike and David.

7. Dominion (the Card Game) has consumed my soul. It's a fantastic game and we keep having 'after work' games of it and it seems that everyone I;ve played it with so far needs MORE!!! I've not seen such addictiveness in a game since Magic: The Gathering.

8. Something smells like it's burning. I should give up thinking of ten things to write and go and explore...

9. Ah. Natasha is cooking a baked potatoe in the oven but Ray hasn't cleaned all the meaty gunk that's dripped to the bottom of the oven so it's making the stink. One month to go :p

10. I came back upstairs with strawberry yogurt so all is right in the world. Well, for the next couple of minutes anyway.

Zeromancer used to be pretty cool-- a nice change of pace from all the cookie cutter EBM coming out. I suppose they still are with that in mind. Send Me An Angel is a track I have fond memories of, and it's a great cover. Otherwise, YMMV...

Pitchfork haven't released anything all that good in years IMnsHO. That's why Gawd made Absurd Minds, young man. ;P

It's only a matter of time before the smoking in Ghostbusters is "revised".

"Lead and Feathers" was my fave PP track...

The new Lily Allen album's pretty good. Very, erm, HER.

I had a meringue nest with low fat custard and mashed blueberries for dessert! NOM!

Zeromancer were always a pop band in the goth circuit, like Oomph. Saw them both play M'era Luna back in '01 and they had lots of screaming girls on the front row, it was a giggle :)

The Prodigy are playing M'era Luna this year. Crazy.

Yeah, I heard that The Prodigy were playing this years show. Odd choice but a very enjoyable band live.

Saw Zeromancer supporting someone-I-don't-recall in Wolverhampton in the late 90s. Would have bought some had I not been so skint. I mostly remember them doing a rather good cover of an old Propaganda track.

1. Zeromancer: Yes, they mostly sound like industrial metal nowadays it seems. Some of their earlier releases are more EBM, but in general they try to be a poor man's version of Marilyn Manson now :)
Remixed versions of their songs are mostly more EBM though...

3. Project Pitchfork: Haven't heard the full album yet, but from the promo tracks I received, I rather had the impression it was a return to form after several disappointing albums...
