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 read this book earlier in the year and agree that it is a good source.--Surv1v4l1st (Talk|Contribs) 05:21, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

Ghosts I–IV FAR[edit]

I have nominated Ghosts I–IV 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. LADY LOTUSTALK 11:40, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Band member timeline standards discussion at WikiProject Musicians[edit]

I wanted everyone here to know about the current discussion happening at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Musicians#Create Member Section/Timeline Standards that may put an end to all of the edit warring and inconsistency surround band member timelines. — DLManiac (talk) 06:52, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Ignored AFDs, and please add the article alert[edit]

We have an article alerts page, and I note Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hands Productions which needs more eyes on it (and if it should be kept, it needs good sources). Please watchlist the alert page and participate in AFDs, fix PRODed articles, etc :-) - David Gerard (talk) 16:20, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 22:31, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
