Re: NEW Witch-House.com compilation: tribute to AKIRA

Post by twinvessel »

I've been seeing some incredible electro videos using clips from Akira
Actrazer "We Own The Night"

If I was to do an Akira inspired track I definitely would try and avoid samples

That year I also got big into Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Bauhaus, Ministry, Front 242, Joy Division, Dead Kennedys and then started reading zines, RE/Search books, Mondo 2000, 2600, Industrial Nation...aww what a great time. Hilarious Hollywooh is trying to do some Americanized remake.
i love the Dead Kennedys 8-)
Yeah it's really sad how the band cashed in on some "reunion" tour without Jello Biafra. So bizarre.
