      Apop are very big in mainland Europe, they're a festival headline act in Germany, and practically unknown anywhere in the english speaking world. Until here, of course.
      Any searches of German websites will reveal the existence of large amounts of TeutonicTechno but very little of it seems to travel well.
      And if they had never covered that House Of Love track, I would never have heard of them (what a weird coincidence that was. I was editing the HOL article in a netcafe and the APOP track played over the cafe stereo. just one of those moments ...)

      Thanks for posting about that band (well, guy!) here. I'm not sure
      how I found out about "Apop", but I did buy an EP/single several
      years ago called Kathy's Song (Come Lie Next To Me), and I loved the
      electro beats and sweetly mournful vocals (very much like Dave Gahan
      of Depeche Mode in angelic mode) - you know, like he's in a reverie,
      dreaming about 'Kathy'...; here's a link to song on YouTube.com, but
      I think it's a remix version, not original cut:

      - and then I also picked up the EP/single Paranoia, or Mourn; not
      sure of title, but it has both those songs on it, and while they
      don't reach the heights of Kathy's Song, they have that cool, dark,
      electro-pop vibe.

      I've heard a few other songs by Apop on college radio, but haven't
      been following what they're doing now that closely. That will now
      change! :) Thanks for the info -
