  1. Oh, yes please! This is past due.

    But no Einstuerzende Neubauten? It looks pretty firmly placed within the Anglo-American industrial scene....

    Good point! That's curious.

  3. Might just be who the film maker has access to, but I think that the artistic impulses that led to industrial were certainly more global.... Certainly you could see parallels elsewhere in Europe and in say Japan. But not including Neubauten seems like an oversight, but maybe they do cover them in the documentary and they just didn't make it into the trailer?

    But it does look like a good documentary. I'm looking forward to it. I love well done music documentaries... the one on Kraftwerk was excellent:

  5. So nice to see Test Dept. get a mention. Bizarre that Neubauten and Coil don't.
