Ok, I should warn most of readers here again since this is once again one of those posts that won't interest anyone except possibly one or two readers that never comment anyway, but since I don't write for any audience other than myself really I say screw it and post stuff like this anyway. So those of you interested in Japanese adventures or work insanity better look away now at once.
As I have been pretty open about, I have a dark and sordid past as an electrohead and goth. Granted, being a salaryman I have left the whole subculture business long behind and broadened my horizons in terms of music as well, but Electronic Body Music and Gothic Goth holds a place dear to my heart. As I was randomly searching for information about some band the other day, I happened to come across quite a few interesting pages.
There seem to be this community, mostly based in South America that are dedicated to putting up a lot of music in form of whole albums available for direct online. Granted, most of the albums they are putting up are out of print since long long ago and with no risk of getting an additional printing, but some sites also put up quite new albums, I'm not really sure that you are allowed to do that... But I'm not complaining, through sites such as "The Sound of Muzak", "Gothic Rock" and this site I've found tons of nostalgic music, including albums that I read a review of in a magazine over 15 years ago and always wanted to have but couldn't afford.
But yeah, maybe it's only me who always wondered how "Eyes of the Nighmare Jungle" and "Revenge of the Nephythys" sounded, but thanks to these sites, now I know (hint: yeah, they sucked...)!
