WTF? Just saw the last news item and checking it out. Looks like an old auto-news item as Igs isn’t Interwebbing at the moment. Shall keep people posted.

[Electro-rock/hard alternative] Not Goth, but plays nicely with emphasis on the electro and the rock (duh), and usually has a couple of acts from Tokyo’s darker side. With around six or so acts each event, you will always get your money’s worth.

Tonight’s line-up is looking totally awesome with heavy doses of the rough stuff from the industrial world including power metal with industrial undertones from Morgue (headed up by ex-Despair junk-boardist Seiji), hard industrial from Eingezogen Gestalt and ax-laced industrial from Nicht. Other acts are Japanese Babies, Stony Head System and 蓮毁E(too lazy to translate – sorry).

Just 1,600 yen advance or 1,800 yen @ the door.

Full details

How’s this for an introduction to Der Eisenrost:
I just found out that Der Eisenrost, aka the industrial-as-fuck dudes who did the soundtrack to the Tetsuo the Iron Man films and are basically a Japanese Einsturzende Neubauten, are playing at Urga on October 25.

Cheers consume! And thanx for the extra info. Other artists include the moshing DJ-style performance of Custom Mummy and more…

Svastika Nite @ Urga
Open: 18:00 :: Start: 19:00
Live: Der Eisenrost (info), Custom Mummy, Trash Surgar, Yuko
DJ’s: Sitha

Full details…


Yep, another slowdown. I could tell you what’s going down, but it doesn’t help anyone none, so I won’t! There’s just a lot of stuff. There is something really cool that could come online in a couple of months, but that will just need to be under wraps for now.

I would like to put a big thank you to Maya who added the discount to her Midnight Mess last month! That was probably the nicest thing anybody has done for me as the JGoth slave this year. Thank you!!

Onto other things… Well there are lots of things happening over the Halloween period November 21 through to 28 so I will try to get to adding some of those over the next week.

As a special favor to the slave… If you book any events that you found over here please let the people you book with know that you found them from Igor @ JGoth. This helps let them know that this place does serve a purpose.

Righto, I better do some hood-work.
