Incredibly sad, she was one of the best to do it.

I'll just leave this one here:…

Musically, I think it's safe to say that Genesis is by far the weakest link in Throbbing Gristle.

I am extremely excited for this album. I think 'Desertshore' is great and having someone like TG cover it from front to back is like a dream pairing.

@7: This. VitaminWaters for everyone.

I hate this commercial with a passion. Detroit techno was created in the vacuum caused by car manufacturing jobs shutting down in Detroit. Using Detroit techno in a commercial for American cars is like using prison work songs in a commercial for a judge.

'Fac. Dance' was a blindingly good compilation and when I saw that a second edition was out, I bought it right away ($10 digital download at Bleep). The digital version has a slightly different tracklisting than the UK 2xCD version (no ESG, boo, but you should have their discography already, right?), but it's a steal at ten bucks for over 2 hours of music.

'Chain Of Fools' is an unstoppable pile driver, no cover can touch the original. Sorry to go for an obvious choice, but sometimes the answer is an easy one.

Thanks, Dave. I'm looking forward to more installments in the series!

I'm biased, but Appleblim's 2010 set at the Baltic Room was one of the best sets I've ever heard. I remember the moment that he played Objekt's 'Tinderbox' (…) a few months before it came out - I lost my shit when the synth parts creep in (Objekt is playing at this year's dB too). Add to that, you'll never meet a nicer guy - he's absolutely one of the most extraordinarily genuine people in a DJ world where that is very hard to come by.

Off topic, but I've always liked Eumir Deodato's cover of 'Nights...':…
