Editorial: January, 2015

It's the first Editorial of the year!

Who the hell cares?! I hear you cry. OK... stop crying... please... stop?


Yes, it is the first editorial column of the year and as such I think it is only right that we start things off the right way... with a plug for the new compilation album.

In case you haven't seen it yet, we launched our second free digital compilation on 1st January 2015 to coincide with our second birthday as a website.

Featuring, in order of appearance: Jensen, Machinista, Noir, Randolph & Mortimer, Three Winters, Aeon Sable, Grypt, Cardboard Dead Boy, Petrol Bastard, The Gifted, Devil-M, Non-Bio, The Walking Wounded, Vvinter Rainbovv, and Blitzkrieg Baby.

Plus, a full colour A4 PDF booklet by Imago Mortis (

You can download all fifteen tracks for free at out bandcamp page.

Now, on to the main part of this months ramble; Moustaches.

I am a proud wearer of facial hair, and in particular I devote time everyday to styling my moustache, which often takes on a Salvador Dali-like appearance. It's an interesting thing having eccentric upper-lip hair. Not unlike the episode of Family Guy where Peter Griffin grows one and becomes deeply involved in the culture that goes with it (McStroke).. although I can't say that I have ever greeted the day in a combination of jeans, jeans shirt and jeans jacket, I am however often stopped by people who make a point of commenting on it and asking how I grow it in this fashion. Although when you have a moustache 365 days a year and people simply refer to it as a “Movember” it gets a little tiresome.

When done right, a properly cared for moustache exerts a suaveness and gravitas that marks a person out for the right reasons... or it can make you like a 1970s sleazy porn star. Either way, people will take notice!

But I'm not the only one who likes to rock a 'tache. In recent years the likes of Nick Cave, Andy LaPlegua, Peter Murphy, and Alexis Mincolla have served the cause of facial topiary within the goth and industrial scenes. Hell, even Nick Cave's moustache has its own facebook fan page. Unfortunately though, most people merely dabble in the practice, but I'd like to see the moustache gain as firmer footing.

So let's hear it for the moustache!
