May was a very special themed month for Eddie, it was the time that Eddie "jacked in" the cyberpunk culture currently embraced by electronic youth anywhere! Eddie has always been with it and here is the proof! This entry was the first of many in May and one of my particular favorite as it dealt with Cyberpunk Music Icon Jared LaDouche, lead singer of the band Chemical Lab and Eddie created some powerful and resonant fan art! My eyes still tear up when I see this awesome image!
Its just pure fucking machine rock at its finest. Why they werent big players? alongside NIN and Ministry is beyond me. Just look, the Ten Ton Pressure ep came out in 89 as did PHM Burnout in 94 as did TDWS, i think 10 Ten Ton ep blows PHM away and Burnout i wouldnt say is better than TDWS but is just as good. Now i know NIN were totally mainstream but still. They shit all over KMFDM and are just as good as 80s Ministry. What is Louche up to these days? havent heard a thing since Oxidizer wallstreet?again?
Its pointless to bash a bunch of irrelevant 90's industrial rock bands, cause everyone here knows that most of them suck, there are only a handfull that matter. The use of the guitar shouldnt automatically make it fake industrial. The ones that should get bashed are the ones that truly suck, as well as the knockoff wannabe's. If you happen to think Chemlab is among the ones who suck, i'm fine with that.
Yes i know about the "wave" NIN and Ministry created, i dont give a shit about that. What i'm saying is Chemlab were one of the few in that wave that were good enouph and deserved to be alongside NIN and Ministry. But some dont seem to agree, and thats cool, I'm just saying... i dont need a lesson in industrial rock history. Say what u want about 'em, just dont list a crap load of electro rock bands and compare them to Chemlab, cause honestly, none of them sound a thing like Chemlab.
XtRaterrestrial gives us a bad name!
