- Metal Dance: Industrial/Post-Punk/EBM: Classics & Rarities ’80-’88

It’s primitive, relentless and often quite minimal music. It’s also amazing.

May 1st 2012 | Label: 377
In the '80s, post-punk and new wave collided with dark electronic music with industrial leanings, leading to the label electric body music (EBM), highlighting the music's electric throb and dull narcotic groove. Metal Dance: Industrial/Post-Punk/EBM: Classics & Rarities '80-'88 (Strut) is a collection of these dark missives curated by DJ Trevor Jackson (Playgroup). We're talking pre-champagne-swilling Einstürzende Neubauten, SPK, Jah Wobble, Severed Heads, Cabaret Voltaire, Naked Lunch, Yello, even filmmaker John Carpenter, amongst two discs of even more obscure, boundary-pushing artists. It's primitive, relentless and often quite minimal music. It's also amazing.
