  • Music:
I'm listening to some MP3s of Fluorescent, a Melbourne electropop duo justlikehoney pointed me to, and I was struck how much they reminded me of various Australian industrial bands I've heard like This Digital Ocean; the heavy analogue drones, monotonous vocals, relentless electronic beats and all that.

Which got me thinking that someone could probably write a book/article about the Australian industrial/underground post-punk electronica tradition; there's a lot there, from the likes of SPK, Severed Heads, Ash Wednesday/Crashland and various Ollie Olsen projects (Whirlywirld, Max Q) to the likes of This Digital Ocean and SNOG, that goth band that did the techno cover of Joy Division's In A Lonely Place Ikon and indie bedroom electronica acts like New Waver and Stinky Fire Engine . And then there was Robin Whittle (inventor of the Devilfish TB-303 mod and advocate of marital BDSM), another Australian.
