As a maker of electronic pop music this is Year 40 Plus for me. The post
punk eyeliner 80s were my vainglorious years of subculture youth, of
Depeche Mode, Cabaret Voltaire, New Order. I also lived these years
with the Australian synth/new wave band Real Life, the past 15 as Alien
Little propels me forward as much as creating new music of the genre I
love. Now inspiration is more and more drawn from sources akin to the
state of mind the years have etched. Increasing age, loss of nearest and
dearest, nothing being new under the sun; all this can be a powerful
director of one's focus.
"I do not believe in death I won't be around to know I'm gone" is an
Andy Warhol quote I adapted for one of the album's songs. My own
existential unravelling over the recent past is responsible for, "every face
I see will die and every memory through my eyes will end with me" for
The psyche present in these thoughts helped frame the concept of
'NEGATIVE PLUS' during months of Australian antarctic winter.
Simultaneously though, I've always had a keen want to inject enduring
pop melodies to balance the melancholic drama. If you can't remember
the vocal tune of a song then I have failed.
Shamelessly dropping one final name: Lebanon Hanover's subversive
lyric "sadness is rebellion" is one I've considered for some time. I
realised this contemporary, pro 80s, darkwave/post-punk duo's epithet
aligns with my own resistance to toxic positivity. And this considered
attitude has resulted in the pathos drenched yet electro-humanoid Alien
Skin album, 'NEGATIVE PLUS'. ~George
