One half of Glaswegian DJ duo Optimo selects his favourite harsh-outs you can get down to
We think it’s fair to say that JD Twitch knows his onions when it comes to the underground sounds of the early eighties. His VF Editions-released compilation, due to be released 19 February, So Low, concentrates on synth, cold wave and industrial music of the era, while his [Cease & Desist] DIY! (Cult Classics From The Post-Punk Era 1978-82) showcased an excellent selection of under-the-radar post-punk.
Here, in preparation for his appearance with DJ mate Jonnie Wilkes as Optimo at Bloc, he picks out some industrial action that you can bop along to, too.
