‘Industrial Soundtrack for the Urban Decay’ traces the origins of Industrial music, taking a journey through the crumbling industrial cities of Europe to America’s thriving avant-garde scene. Industrial music emerged in the mid 1970s, providing a vibrant, provocative, and artistic soundtrack to the picket lines, economic decline, and cultural oppression of the era. Whether factory workers, students, or unemployed, industrial music pioneers were all educated, artistically minded and politically aware artists who started with little to no musical background and went on to change musical history. Featuring Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, and many other pioneers.
