I loved the old Industrial Culture Handbook from Re/Search. Sounds like this is the documentary film version.

I think the film makers perhaps included Val because he published that book, he sponsored a film screening in SF last night.


Apparently it's kinda like the noise version of American Hardcore.

I went to see a different film instead. A new documentary called Sympathy For The Devil which is a documentary about the Process Church Of The Final Judgment, which also features Genesis P-Orridge and was pretty good, not the best ever, but good.

So I was informed. I would say that I agree with them, some of them have been playing since the late 80's themselves and apparently the common complaint was the film does not leave the door open to new artists, sort of, Industrial Music died with the end of Throbbing Gristle, ECT, and to this I would say the film makers should not have made the same mistake American Hardcore made, but I still haven't even seen this so I don't know for sure. Regardless, I would say that the film is treading uncharted territory and telling a story that hasen't been told before, at least on screen, and its a two sided coin. Good to see it done, bad to see it give mass audiences a quick and easy explanation.

The complaint alone that it doesn't cover newest artists is pretty much dumb. That's common for people deep into anything but it doesn't take any merit off any doc.
Focusing on some period of time or some projects only can be limiting at first but it also can be used to explore it's subject more than some biting more than one can chew.
Gotta see it first to have an opinion on it, the subject is interesting.

Side note: And it's funny but I can't remember if I saw or not American Hardcore. I think I did and it was just not that memorable.

Mark Pauline section of the Industrial Culture Handbook is absolutely essential.
I would say that his inclusion or exclusion from the Industrial Soundtrack For The Urban Decay film would be a good point to judge how accurately it presents "America's thriving avant-garde scene"

Boyd Rice I gotta find more of his early interviews. His segment of the Pranks film was by far my favorite.

Finally watched this... disappointing. Overly simplistic. Rushed. Interviews not long enough or engaging enough to even tell a story. It simply states we lived during this time, there was some sort of general societal decline, we worked in factories,Margaret thatcher, then noise industrial music came about & "we" made it...

And then it abruptly ends.

I didn't make it so I have no right to say anything, but, it's a general oversimplification and that in turn cheapens the art & "movement"

and of course we all know noise started in 1913, so why not start there?
