IAO is Now on Facebook

If blogger isn't your thing, and facebook is, you're not the only one. We've been inactive a lot lately but you can keep in touch with new posts on facebook now if you are interested. "Like" us.


  1. I just wanted to say that I think your blog is really well written, insightful and makes incredibly important points. I am so sorry to read that you are bombarded by 'bros' who either threaten you personally or claim that your blog is attacking freedom of speech. The idea that criticising misogyny, racism and militarism is an attempt to ban artistic expression is spurious and disingenuous and I notice that your critics don't engage with you at an intellectual level but repeat the same baseless assertions over and over again. My friends and I have been listening to industrial for over 2 decades now and have seen it go from an outsider's music which saw itself as the heir to punk to a commodified and bland product which takes its visual cues from computer games and mainstream action films. Now I prefer Chicago House, Detroit Techno and French Coldwave. My friends and I are straight males (even though that's a social construct, natch!) and we try to challenge misogyny, sexism and homophobia whenever it crops up in the industrial scene. Good luck and more power to you!

  2. Thanks for the kind and inspiring comment and the work you and your friends are doing!
