My favorite Siouxsie LP is The Tinderbox. I love the guitar work so much on it. I love when the song breaks down, and this is the kind of guitar work i love to play the most when I write. Mesmerizing. They don’t make music like this anymore… I got into Siouxsie way after the cure, in my late 20s, as to where i was into the cure when i was much younger.
When I was growing up i used to see devo videos all the time on my local pbs station. This music was a huge influence on me when i was younger, and i preferred Devo to Kraftwerk any day of the week. This was the American Kraftwerk.
They had a Vhs video thing that was was amazing that i watched a lot too. The singer also was part of the Church of the Sub Genius. I used to drop acid and watch that.
This is the band that actually made VAC start more than any other. This idea that with a drum machine you could basically do anything. I still love the old Sisters, up to floodland. After floodland I could care less. This was the sound track to my teen years. And the first Alternative band I was ever exposed to. Old VAC was all bases on the DR 660 drum machine. I still use sounds from this drum machine now.
The sisters are not goth, they are the sisters. They are loved by goths but also appeal to people outside goth culture. Much like the cure is not goth, they are the cure.
Ahhhh, Curve, a band that is so under rated and I still listen to it to this day.
We tried to get The singer of this band to sing to slut. Ahhh so close but fell through, oh i wish it hadnt… Even though it was still one of our biggest hits..
I saw this video when i was on acid with an X from a long long time ago when i used to wear skirts and have huge goth hair… Oh those old days, the beginning days of VAC. And believe it or not Curve was a BIG influence on us.
Yay, got the se02, Pro-1, and a bunch good software, massive x, spire, arturia 8, dune 3, and lots more. Working on new songs, drums with battery and outboard quadraverb gt and gsp5 should get me into that old VAC sound nicely. Picked up a akai MIDImix Control Surface(to control and program my soft synths, and it didn’t work just like the korg nanokontrol2, those are for abelton)). Got Vaccinated, first shot, will get second shot in 20 days, I hope shows will happen this fall. If not then i hope in 2022. I miss playing shows more than anything, and our time touring for Ora Oblivionis got cut short Sadly because of covid.
I think I will be streaming newer ps4 and ps5 games more than PS3 games. Not many new games really make me happy at the moment, not sure if I will have a ps5 this year 🙁
I am working on Patreon content and post old stuff to my YouTube. I want to get more watch hours on my YouTube account so I can monetize my YouTube. I thought about a twitch channel, but honestly I do not just want to stream games and YouTube is a better fit for the vast sorts of media i need to publish.
I was blown away by some of the songs in the game cyberpunk. I used to love driving in the game just to listen to the stations between missions and exploring.. Again I am sad that i didnt get to write any music for this game… 🙁
