Over halfway through the month now, so I imagine there are a fair few of you out there gearing up for the Bram Stoker Film Festival and Whitby Goth Weekends which are fast approaching... Though that double whammy is the signal for the end of the year, there are still plenty of things going on in November and December before Christmas hits, so hopefully you won't spend all your hard earned cash all in one place!
The big news this week was the tragic passing of electronic artist and producer Mark Bell of LFO fame. The announcement came via Warp Records on Monday evening that Bell had died following complications from surgery. His work with LFO as well as a producer, remixer and collaborator with acts such as Depeche Mode, Erasure and Bjork has had a profound impact on electronic music in the UK and internationally. Intravenous Magazine would like to express our condolences to Mark Bell's family at this difficult time.
On the website this week we had plenty of news stories from the likes of Garden Of Delight, Ludovico Technique, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing, and Cygnets. As well as reviews of the latest releases from Hanzel Und Gretyl, This Sect, Us Amongst The Rest, and Digitalis Purpurea.
Over on Facebook there was new music courtesy of Inertia. And a lot of videos from Hanzel Und Gretyl, Depeche Mode, L'Ame Immortelle, Naked Highway, and Laibach.
Right that's your lot for this week. To get you going for the weekend here is LFO at their best to remind you what you're missing...
