Mindtrain 14 – 01 November 2011

Tuesday, November 1

I’ve been planning this show for months now, pulling albums and tracks from my library of dark and disturbing music and adding them to an enormous playlist in iTunes. This past week I went through that playlist, weeding out many selections and keeping only the darkest and scariest examples of spooktacular music from many of my favorite artists.

The early recordings of Current 93 have always sounded extremely demonic and malevolent to my ears, and tracks from these albums took up a lot of the program, including many of the remixed versions which Andrew Liles released (issuing remixed versions of five entire albums between 2008 and 2009). Other artists from that post-Industrial milieu whose work fit into the ‘Dark 80s’ vein included (inevitably) Coil, Diamanda Galas and Lustmord. The disturbingly dark Rock In Opposition neo-medieval chamber music of Belgium’s Univers Zero figured prominently in the program as well as one of Magma’s most hellish selections. And finally I sprinkled in some more recent recordings from the 90s and 00s by Boyd Rice And Fiends, Apoptose, John Watermann and a few others. There was so much scary music to draw from in my collection I could have easily done a 12-hour special, but I think the concentrated assortment found herein will suffice.

The playlist gives artist name, song title, and album title (in that order). A space between lines of text indicates the break between sets where track announcements were made.
