    Kosmiche supposedly is more the synth rather than guitar stuff
    (more googing)

    DotCommunist my world is fire and blood

    'you know kraftwerk yeah? well stuff that sounds a bit like them'

    I admit it lacks the polish of an NME honed genre label

    Except people will know She's A Model, and that doesn't cover Popol Vuh.

    Kraftwerk were trying to get away from all that anyway. They disown their first three proper kosmische album.

    It's Ralf Hutter's 70th birthday today, by the way.

    I have a keyboard on my phone that lets me do accents, so I could easily have done the umlaut, but felt a bit embarrassed doing it on a hipster thread.

    I was listening to the slowed down sound of stridulating crickets earlier, and thinking it was so 2013.

    Where does EBM sit on that scale?

    What is EBM? Had to google Electronic body music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Belgian New Beat?
    I reckon thats "Level 4" Old School EDM
    New School EDM is Level 2, but Old School EDM was new for me first time around, so Im counting it as 2 also, rather than as a 4 - I reckon I'm just a level 2 Outsider :)

    It's a bit amusing but doesn't stand up to too much scrutiny really. For example there are surely hipster variants of a lot of the genres mentioned.

    There's definitely hipster jazz for example. And what about all those cool retro rockabilly hipster women you see around the place? I guess they listen to 50s pop music?

    Only the first two albums, well first album and a couple of tracks on the second, were real kreatrock.

    I'd tell you what I'm into but you probably haven't heard of the categories (apologies).

    I'm not quite sure what I meant by that now...

    I'd say entry-level would be some expensive Blue Note vinyl represses.

    Then a dalliance with Sun Ra (but not the rest of the free jazz / cosmic jazz stuff).

    Then just obscure as you like from any era. Whatever crops up on Youtube. That sort of thing.

    That flyer is no harsher than "no hoods no hats no trainers" is it?

    Monkeygrinder's Organ Dodgy geezer swilling vapid lager

    It's basically 'no wankers' from Monkey Dust in 2003/4ish.
     
  27. 8ball

    8ball ...I'm pretty sure it wasn't.

    Nah, nu-folk and anti-folk are different.
    The first was folk with fey indie elements (or more often fey indieness with folky elements) and the second was folk with punk elements.

    edit: I think this post puts me high up on the scale :(
    edit2: The more I read the word 'folk' the more it sounds in my head like the last name of the guy who played Columbo

    butchersapron blood on the walls

    Or, fascist politics with folk elements (and a severely limited idea of what constitutes folk at that - certainly not the sort of thing popularly taken as folk in this country anyway).
