‘Click Interview’ with LivingTotem: ‘A Ritual Cyber-Punk Dystopia In Industrial Technology’

LIVINGTOTEM is a Hungarian solo-project driven by András Gulyás. He released his first official album “40K” in 2014 on Advoxya Records. The next album “Raw Effort” got released in 2017 on Ant-Zen and revealed a strong fusion between different music styles like Industrial, Trance, Techno, IDM and Tribal. The newest opus “Surreal Existence” got released by the end of 2020 and clearly sounds as a new masterpiece, but also revealing an artist with a very own sound approach. If you don’t know yet LIVINGTOTEM I can only, but encourage you to discover the great work of András Gulyás. (Picture credit by infinitbeat.hu / Interview courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: How did you get in touch with Electro/Industrial music and what incited you to set up LIVINGTOTEM? András: I grew up in the vicinity of a brick factory, so I experienced industrial noises and visual impacts at a young age. However, sometime in the late 80s, getting to know FRONT 242, DAF, TEST DEPT and SKINNY PUPPY gave me the real push towards that direction. At that time it was not easy to get this music here in Hungary, the ‘iron curtain’ was still closed and we were living in […]

Side-Line has been running web push notifications in stealth mode for the last few months: 5000th subscriber added this week

Over the past few years social media platforms have been taking over the largest chunk of internet traffic. This also caused that many publishers were no longer able to maintain their readership on their own website as lots of people are mostly using social media. Combine that with the heavy restriction on organic reach on those same social media platforms and you will quickly see that it’s Facebook who is deciding what you see and what you don’t. Bernard Van Isacker during the indie press roundtable talk in Brussels (BE) in Summer 2020. Chief editor Bernard Van Isacker explains: “The fluctuation is mostly visible on Facebook which is really an awful platform for unknown or smaller bands. Since we offer a lot of news from starting and smaller bands we have noticed early on that those items are not being picked up by Facebook’s algorithms unlike news from other more popular bands. This deliberate limit of reach was something I did predict would happen back when Facebook was still a complete free ride. I remember very well that I have been ridiculed by some calling it bullshit. Well, we are the year 2021 and see, things turned out to be […]

‘Click Interview’ with RED ZEBRA: ‘Thank You Western World’

RED ZEBRA is part of the Belgian music history. Set up in the late ’70 they rapidly became a successful formation often linked to Punk- and New/Cold-Wave music. Singer and front man Peter Slabbynck doesn’t really care about genres, but the early success song “I Can’t Live In A Living Room” remains forty years later an absolute Punk- and New-Wave hymn. The band last year released the noticeable compilation “Songs And Stripes (1980 – 2020)” on Wool-E Discs, which is the perfect album to rediscover the magic of this formation. I talked about a few things with Peter Slabbynck. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: RED ZEBRA has been set up in 1978! How do you imagine your life without this alter-ego? And what has been the impact of RED ZEBRA on your life and the person you are today? Peter: Before RED ZEBRA, there was THE BUNGALOWS. But I changed the name at the end of ’79. With the new name people took us more serious. But Punk changed my life; it said to me: ‘don’t wait, do it yourself’! It was perfect for a redhead kid with a big mouth, not afraid to sing and make a fool […]
