Welcome my son
Welcome to the machine
Where have you been?
It’s alright we know where you’ve been
You’ve been in the pipeline
Filling in time
Provided with toys and scouting for boys
You bought a guitar to punish your ma
And you didn’t like school
And you know you’re nobody’s fool
So welcome to the machine
Welcome my son
Welcome to the machine
What did you dream?
It’s alright we told you what to dream
You dreamed of a big star
He played a mean guitar
He always ate in the Steak Bar
He loved to drive in his Jaguar
So welcome to the machineApril 17, 2019 at 6:01 pm #112438

I like M83s lost cities red ghosts etc album. I have that on CD. They got less ambient/moody and more rocky/poppy as it went on so I will have to check the newer stuff.April 18, 2019 at 9:34 pm #112485April 21, 2019 at 3:53 pm #112551

The video is like a segment of a dramatic mythic play showcasing the production of amrita.

The music seems inspired by Scelsi and the video a portrayal of the cosmological birth and rise of life in the universe over epochs of time.

liked That Which Remains. thanks Mal.
heres a pretty riffy.
‘I’ll tell you about punk rock: punk rock is a word used by dillitante’s and ah… and ah… heartless manipulators about music that takes up the energies and the bodies and the hearts and the souls and the time and the minds of young men who give what they have to it and give everything they have to it and it’s a… it’s a term that’s based on contempt.
It’s a term that’s based on fashion, style, elitism, satanism and everything that’s rotten about rock’n’roll.
I don’t know Johnny Rotten but I’m sure…
I’m sure he puts as much blood and sweat into what he does as Sigmund Freud did.
You see, what sounds to you like a big load of trashy old noise is in fact the brilliant music of a genius, myself .
And that music is so powerful that it’s quite beyond my control and ah…
When I’m in the grips of it I don’t feel pleasure and I don’t feel pain, either physically or emotionally.
Do you understand what I’m talking about? Have you ever felt like that?
When you just couldn’t feel anything and you didn’t want to either.
You know? Like that? Do you understand what I’m saying sir?’\
I used to be in punk bands in my teens but it got a bit too repetitive for me. When it comes to raw or spirited I like black metal more than punk these days but it definitely helped shape me.April 25, 2019 at 10:34 pm #112644

A lovely musical spell and ode to fear that can be read a couple different ways.

A song that came to mind thinking about AC’s rather obsessive sex magick practices- Buzzcocks “Orgasm Addict” (1977); i still have the 45 with the iron-headed woman shown in the video.
And a song i ironically referenced in the same thread in response to being told i’m spiritually damaged, Gang Of Four “Damaged Goods” (1979). Another pop ditty quite worth considering when thinking about AC’s sex habits. The Entertainment LP was the only seriously disputed good when my first wife and i divided our chattels.April 26, 2019 at 10:28 pm #112693
When I stopped liking punk, in college, I still liked Gang of Four. Would you consider them punk?
