Dead By Dawn: We Are Invincible (1995)

Dead By Dawn on 3rd December 1994
CLUB REVIEW
by The Institute of Fatuous Research
(from Alien Underground 0.1, 1995)

Dead By Dawn is a baptism by fire happening on the first saturday of every month, organised in conjunction with elaborate astrological cycles. It is an open secret, an anonymous pool of power accessible to guileless travellers of multitudinous potentiality. A new rougher and tender realm and yet another sucker on the beautifful arms of that octopus of desire called the INVISIBLE COLLEGE.

Dead By Dawn is an all-night feast of fire consumption; a self-sustaining palace of pleasure. [Read more →]

Germany Scene Report (1995)

The resistance against Trance for bores a la MFS and Superstition and commercial techno by Marusha and Westbam keeps growing: The Mover (PCP) told us about Parties at the anti-fascist centre in Karlsruhe with 300 people, the first two events by DJ Raid and Christoph de Babalon at the Rote Flora in Hamburg attracted 500/600 people and in Berlin despite of Mayday happening the same night, 1000 hardcore maniacs came to “RETURN OF THE HARDCORE” with E-De-Cologne (Napalm), Xol-Dog 400, DJ Raid (Battletech Termination Source), Tetsuo Heroin (Bass Terror Sound System) and the resident DJ- team the Gabbanauts. Also 800 people found their way to the Bunker on New Years Eve for “RETURN OF THE SON OF HARDCORE” with Ec8or (a.k.a. E-De-Cologne, Carl Crack (Atari Teenage Riot), Moonraker (Bass Terror Sound System), SDI and the Gabbanauts. The Bass Terror Sound System (Alec Empire, Carl Crack, Moonraker,…) also tell us about Free Parties organised at short noticewith 250-300 people, even though the whole promotion only consisted in giving out between 50-100 flyers! Therefore E-De-Cologne is planning to move to Berlin in the near future, as Jammin Unit (Force Inc.) has done recently, because Cologne is still only reacting to trance and mellow tranquilizer acid.
That the Hardcore scene is getting stronger is also reflected by the label- and production side of things: [Read more →]

Alec Empire: “!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Long Live The Underground!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Alec sent us this fax as a contribution to the second issue of Alien Underground (1995). Unfortunately it was badly scanned and hard to read in print, and this is the picture file out of the layout, which doesn’t improve the readability, but for documentation’s sake I think it would have lost its “atmosphere” had it been re-typed….

Elements Toward TechNET Track 3

TechNET was, as the review in the same issue of Alien Underground (self-ironically) stated,
“Some kind of glorified techno flyer passing itself off as a bulletin of the digital underground, argueing for techno as the locus of a new counter culture. Has too much bass gone to their heads? or are these pretentious scribblings encouragement for a tentative optimism, flight lines guiding us to a politics of desire, slippery messages concerning beautiful thought patterns possessed of the art of disappearance, theories of identity that liberate the soul in the dance of all possibilities.” We’re hoping to add other texts some time in the future, here are Elements Toward TechNET Track 3 [Read more →]
