- <<<<ps is anyone in the least bit concerned that some of this digital
type electronica has only one idea and an attention span of about five

there is no genre 'digital discharge electronica'. who are you trying to
pigeonhole with VVM? DHR, Trash? the noise scene??
The majority of related artists are overtly political -- speedranch is not.
they are quite often very talented -- speedranch is not. even so, i'd
rather listen to a 5-minute set from speedranch than the 2-hour offering
from zoviet france (but anyway, wasnt it you who booked him for edinburgh?

The afore-mentioned 5-minute job from speedranch/plotkin is also more
entertaining, more original, possibly more skilled, dare i say it more

When you all get bored, listen to something else. Or go and do something
else entirely. make the world a better place. help the poor & aged.
