Alec Empire analyzing BPM of Gary Numan remix
Read that he doesn’t like him smiling
I think it looks rather cute :-P
The elusive Grinning Alec Empire in his natural habitat, ladies and gentlemen. Documenting this rare sighting was a herculean task only accomplished by famed naturalist David Attenborough after months of observation and hours of waiting around with a team of cameramen.

This true. Alec Empire looks no different now to when I saw him like… 10 years ago.
God. And his brains. He’s on the list of people whose brains I would go for first, should I ever become a zombie.

I can’t remember whether I got into Atari Teenage Riot or Alec Empire’s solo work first but this track (along with The Ride) is certainly up to the standards Empire set with ATR. A thumping, lumbering, droning abomination of a track. And as for the video… hot goth chicks, subversion, a club full of renegade reject clones and the frankly brilliant inclusion of black Monroe clones, superb.

This man is totally adorable. I don’t care that I was deaf for two hours after the first time I saw him live. I can’t help it - he doesn’t have an ipod, he referred to the ATR “reunion” as like a “software update” and totally superficially, he is really, really cute.
In other news, I’ve only just realised that I first saw Alec Empire live 10 years ago. O_o
