Soundtrack to a game: Civil Power

I’ve been designing games (board games, not computer games) for a lot longer than I was ever DJing. In the new year a revised version of Civil Power, a tactical-level game I designed on urban riots and mayhem, will be published by a company called Conflict Simulations. I first designed this game back in 1991-92, and it came with a set of scenarios taken from history and then-contemporary headlines… this new version has a lot of changes informed by over 25 years of designing in between, and a whole new cast of global angst and violence.

So I thought, why not make a playlist to serve as a sort of soundtrack to playing it? The above is 78 minutes of anti-authority music of many genres (most of them loud and snotty), in an easy-to-handle 44K VBR. Hope you enjoy, even if you don’t order my game!

Track listing:

Glory to Hong Kong – anonymous student rebel orchestra
Tommy Gun – The Clash
Fist – Test Department
Solidaritätslied – Ernst Busch Chorus (film clip)
Landlord – Test Department
Ready to Blow – KMFDM
Babylon’s Burning – The Ruts

Penultimate Circuit Breaker: April 10, 2016

APRIL SHOWERS, BRING DARK FLOWERS…

Comrades and Friends,
We’ve decided to hang it up, at least for now.
Circuit Breaker has been a monthly night since the beginning of 2011: more than five years – that is an extremely long time for a regular music event in Victoria.
We’ve had a lot of fun and learned a lot (I know I have), but we’d like to take a break, at least for the next while.
This Circuit Breaker will be the next-to-last one; we will do it again in May, to fulfil the Prophecy of the Poster, and that will be it.
C’mon, don’t be sad… but if there’s going to be weeping and gnashing of teeth, save it for April 10!
Come join us and let’s get a wailing wall going in front of the DJ table!

This website will remain, meanwhile.
