Announcing the Counter-Currents Laibach Anthology

Barbarians are Coming from the East:
Laibach in Trbovlje

Laibach in Trbovlje, October 29, 2017.

6,216 words

When I’ve tried to describe Laibach to the uninitiated, the best analogy I’ve come up with is, “Laibach is what would emerge if you were to take a group of industrial musicians and a group of political scientists and lock them in a gallery containing nothing but fascist, Communist, and modernist art for a year and then released them.” Read more …

Rammstein

Generally, I find it impossible to like popular music unless I was exposed to a particular performer or group before I turned 21. A large part of the problem is that my tastes have been “corrupted” by classical music. Read more …

30 Years of Laibach (II)

1,894 words

Translated by Andreas Faust

Just a few remarks on the 30 year jubilee of Laibach, of whom I have recently confessed myself a fan in this blog.
