We Have a Technical brings I Die: You Die's discussions of industrial, EBM, goth, dark electro, and related music genres to the podcast format. Join Alex, Bruce, and guests as they explore music's darker alternatives.
We Have A Technical 318: The Sound Of Sheffield
Few first-time festival acts piqued our interest as much as Randolph & Mortimer, who made their North American debut at Terminus. The project's combination of groove-heavy EBM and subtly sardonic social commentary has intrigued us for years, and so we were delighted to sit down with Sam Evans to discuss how the project grew out of his backgrounds in techno and hardcore, as well as the socio-political perspective of the uniquely instrumental act.
We Have A Technical 417: At A Moment's Notice
We're back home and moderately well-rested (though as you'll hear not entirely organized) after a weekend of Industrial Summer Camp fun at Calgary's Terminus Festival. This is our recap episode, with discussion of each and every of the twenty-seven acts who took the stage at Dickens. There's also some brief discussion of the sudden passing of Metropolis Records founder Dave Heckman.
We Have A Technical 416: Grag Bagisode
With one foot out the door to meet up with all of our fellow Industrial Summer Campers at Terminus today, we're doing a grab-bag episode of the podcast. Various bits of live news, forthcoming record announcements, luke-warm takes, and seething rants make up the entire body of this episode, so if you're the sort of person who normally tunes out after the first fifteen minutes of our normally formatted episodes, boy howdy do we think you'll like this one!
We Have a Commentary: Din [A] Tod, "Westwerk"
This month's We Have A Commentary bonus podcast has the Senior Staff casting their eyes back to 2009 and the release of Din A Tod's second and final LP Westwerk. While it's a record that offers some highly polished darkwave and post-punk, it also presaged a number of sounds to come, as well as taking some curious detours into strains of dance and rock music well outside of Our Thing.
We Have a Technical 415: Drag Bret Hart Down
This week’s episode has us each picking five pairs of tracks we’ve come to have linked in our minds, whether it be through our personal mixtape or DJ histories, or some other mystery of the human mind. From noise to synthpop to psytrance, we’re hoping these picks also speak to the broader ways in which we all interact with music. All that plus some discussion of the just-announced Substance festival in LA!
We Have A Technical 414: The Whippisode
Inland Empire coldwave and Bay Area no wave are far more different than nomenclature and physical proximity might suggest, as we find out in this episode of We Have A Technical. The loosely thrashing debut from Penal Colony and the abstracted to almost nothing experimentalism of Subpoena The Past are our picks for this two albums episode of the podacast, alongside some gleeful hand-rubbing over the impending arrival of Industrial Summer Camp season.

Best Dark Music Podcast in North America
This is one of the best dark music podcasts out there! Always, have interesting podcasts about what's going on the scene! Bruce and Alex are definitely enthusiastic dark music fans. They have a definite grasp of what's going on in and around the scene! Probably my favorite podcast of all time!
I’ve discovered more great new and old music from listening to these guys talk than from anyone or anything, ever. The amount of dedication and passion they put into the podcast/website is astounding - anyone interested in any of the genres they cover should have a listen and a close look through the blog’s archives.
