A very old friend of mine (Ilya - @IdleRich knows her too) is half of a coldwave/EBM duo called MASSIVE LUXURY OVERDOSE, and they've put this great EP out on BandCamp:


Overall feel to it: coming up hard on a fat line of speed amidst the swirling dry ice in an industrial warehouse in Brussels, ca. 1982.

Some cool videos too, which remind me a little of mistersloane's old Patricide stuff:



Well worth a few quid!

Yes really! Her vocals on the first two tracks, too. Although they're pretty heavily processed. Did you listen? It's pretty decent music, sort of thing that would fit on that Wave Days compilation someone called Rimroyyk or whatever posted here years back.

Oh, I didn't know that. It sounds feminine, to my (obviously not very knowledgeable about Russian names) ear. Maybe it's a girls' name in some other languages? But she goes by 'she' now and has transitioned, or is in the process of doing so, at any rate.

Yeah, I've not seen her since she began the transition, although we chat on FB from time to time. But give the music a whirl - I'm not just saying it because she's a mate, it's genuinely pretty good. Very 'me', if you see what I mean.

I enjoyed it, especially the first one.
With the name thing, I never know about Nikita by Elton John, was he subtly coming out or did he think that was a girl's name?

It's easily done, because it's invariably girls' names that end in 'a' in Western European languages.

Edit: isn't there a French film about a female assassin called Nikita? [insert obligatory "Oh, what was it called now...?" gag]
