“It was in late 2008 that Lars & Kenneth, 2 experienced underground musicians from the Norwegian EBM / industrial scene, united their talents without being aware that in only a few months they would share the stage with FRONT 242 and APOPTYGMA BERZERK, be featured on several high profile compilations, and end up signing to Alfa Matrix. Expect a mix of the distorted force of the 90’s dark electro genre into their strong 80’s EBM roots resulting in dark body music with distorted vocals and a strong sense for melody.”
“Darkness and Jive are a post-punk indie pop band. They were a functioning outfit for 7 years or so between 1981 – 1988. During that time there were numerous line-up changes and the music developed from a primitive, raw, frenetic screech to a more melodic, sophisticated synthetic screech. They recorded 2 singles (Hooked on You c/w Tarzan and Furnace c/w Guys and Dolls) for the York based independent label Red Rhino Records and 2 John Peel sessions for BBC Radio One. They also recorded a few songs for TV shows such as The Tube, The Works and TX45 and played numerous gigs in a wide variety of venues to lots of enthusiastic audiences.”
