Wazu – Councillor
Lyrics: COUNCILLOR

I sat beauty on my knee,
She’d disappointed me
So I told her how to be
That she’d insulted me

Magistrate you’re stained you’re stained
Emperor you’re stained you’re stained

Take your time,
Make sure it’s all that you can find.
Carve a line
And get on the right side

Something got a hold of me
A greater force than me
I told her then and there we’ll be
A pair indefinitely
Bend the line
Make sure it’s harder to define
Compromise
Gets you on the right side

Magistrate you’re stained you’re stained
Emperor you’re stained you’re stained

Councillor you’re stained you’re stained

 

Cold Cave – Confetti

Harking back to those 80’s Industrial, Gothic, Synthpop days are Cold Cave.   However, Cold Cave (aka Wesley Eisold) takes care to not just repeat the sound of the 80’s but to push it further for a more relevant sound for today.  Very strong Joy Division and New Order vibe on this track.  This track is taken from Cold Cave’s second full length titled, “Cherish the Light Years”.

The Young Gods – La Fille De La Mor

Here’s a band I use to skateboard too back in the day called “The Young Gods“.   The Young Gods are a swiss industrail band that formed back in 1987.   “The band’s lineup has generally consisted of a vocalist, a sampler operator and a drummer. Their instrumentation often includes sampled electric guitars, drums, keyboards, and other samples. The lyrics are a mix of English, French and a bit of German.” (taken from Wiki)

My favorite track from them is “La Fille De La Mort” (aka, Daughter of Death), which has orchestral loops, accordions, and ruff french vocals (think a french Tom Waits).   This track is taken from their second album “L’Eau Rouge”, from 1989.
