Assimilate: A Critical History of Industrial Music[edit]

While doing online research for Front Line Assembly-related articles I stumbled over this book from S. Alexander Reed, Assimilate: A Critical History of Industrial Music. It was published in 2013. Upon casual browsing, my impression is that the book might prove very valuable for a lot of Industrial-related articles. In any case, the parts where FLA is mentioned look promising. It appears to be critical in scientific terms and comes with a reference to sources. It mentiones all the big and not so big names and seems to be well-informed. It even quotes Genesis Breyer P-Orridge on the back cover: "Spectacular and accurate in so many ways." The book was generally well-received both by critics and readers though there have been critical remarks about the author's approach and his focus on theory. In my eyes definitively a piece one can work with. IndustrialGiant (talk) 16:01, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Very cool! There's also Alternative Rock by Dave Thompson (ISBN 0879306076), which covers some industrial bands. —Torchiest talkedits 16:50, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
Yep! Print is great stuff. Basically, just dump the book line by line into WP ... - David Gerard (talk) 18:44, 27 April 2014 (UTC)


I started Konstruktivits way back in the mists of time, and I think the release history passes basic notability, but it's got very little in the way of source material (just Discogs listings). Does anyone have usable reference material on them? - David Gerard (talk) 14:01, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Nine Inch Nails FAR[edit]

I have nominated Nine Inch Nails for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Laurent (talk) 23:23, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.
