And it's really recommended for you all to buy the ticket in advance since they actually most likely will run out when the goths find out (excluding elsewhere and kb of course).

This is awesome.

I'm not really that familiar with the bulk of Front 242's work. All I have is the Tyranny >For You< CD. However, it is an album I periodically return to. There's something alluring about it - a beautiful example of a cybernetic aesthetic many have tried to convey, and most others have failed.

Reading about what they have in store for Altparty, and considering this will be their first show in Finland... this will definitely be legendary.

I haven't been to Altparty in years. Always either been dead broke or had some schedule conflicts. This time I'll make damn sure I get there.

If tis is not a joke, this is AWESOME!!!!

242 are one of the best bands in the world IMHO, they still rules today!

Standing so tall / The ground behind
No trespassers / On every floor
A garden swing / And another door
She makes it clear / That everything is hers
A place of abode
Not far from here

from the altparty website;

They are planning to stay the whole weekend and enjoy the other artists and the demo compos. Apparently they have also gone as far as to have purchased an old Amiga to dig up some of their old material, just for the Alternative Party.

I've also managed to book the needed time off from work for that weekend, which tends to be the harder job ;-) See you there!

Have they released anything new since 1992? Must be interesting to hear how their dated tracks got remixed to appeal to today's EBM crowd.

Just to update you about new releases from Front click here

Yes, I checked their Discogs-page before writing my comment.

You'll notice about three new tracks, the rest are remixes or remastered old tracks on compilations. Wow.
