The New Dad Rock
EP 21. Electronic Avenue
Sep 15, 2020 Season 3 Episode 2
Steve Nelson & Keith Nottonson

By the late 80s, the halcyon sound of synthesizers and electronic drums had become ubiquitous. No artist was safe from the effervescent mechanical march that swept up Rush and resulted in Judas Priest's make most controversial album (Turbo). But this episode has literally nothing to do with any of that.

You're welcome.

No, this week The New Dad Rock delves deep into the uncanny valley. From innocent beginnings in machine learning with Depeche Mode we delve headlong into the industrial lairs of Ministry and Nine Inch Nails. The snapping jaws of Skinny Puppy give way to our cyberpunk future. Anxiety sets in and the end of the world vibe of the late-90s forgets the despair to make the best of what's still around.

So rave 'til dawn with Keith, Steve, and very special guest, H.A. Eugene as they stroll down Electronic Avenue.
