Hello, so mr Sanders won a big victory tonight against establishment candidate Hilary Clinton, not even 6 months ago this man was ignored by mainstream media, after all he was a leftwing nut. But then he makes a lot of sense and he's getting a big podium now. Alas even if he would make it to the white house his enemies -the 1% will find it easy to find idiots trying to kill him, and lets not forget the military, plenty of nut cases there as well (think pentagon attack 9/11). Meanwhile a 27$ campaign contribution will bring the world a political revolution..

Today's artist Die Form is a French post-industrial and electronic band formed in 1977-78. The name 'Die Form' means '(the) form/shape' in German, like the Bauhaus diary and is a play on the English homonym 'deformed' and on the French homonym 'difforme' (deformed). .....N'Joy

Die Form is the primary project of the French electronic musician and multimedia artist Philippe Fichot. He began by recording a number of experimental cassette releases, starting with Die Form 1 in 1977, and with the first Die Form vinyl release ('Die Puppe') appearing in 1982. Whilst the project was still in its infancy, the underlying concepts were still evident - a combination of esoteric electronic experiments with an underlying theme of erotism, death and other 'taboo' subjects, apparent in both the music and the album artwork, which Philippe also produces. Other early projects of Philippe Fichot included Krylon Hertz, Mental Code, Camera Obscura, Eva-Johanna Reichstag, Hurt and Fine Automatic.

'Some Experiences With Shock' followed in 1984, with the project taking a direction towards a more commercial sound on 1986's 'Poupée Mécanique'. The project then consolidated its experimental and melodic sides on 'Photogrammes', before introducing vocalist (and model) Eliane P. on the 1990 album 'Corpus Delicti', who remains with the project to this day. The next release, 1992's 'Confessions' saw a club hit in 'Silent Order', with sister album 'Ad Infinitum' (which originated from the same recording sessions) released a year later.

The next 'Die Form' releases saw the poetic, emotional side of their sound richen via 'The Trilogy of Passions', starting with 'Suspiria De Profundis' in 1994, followed by 'L'âme électrique' the following year. 1997's 'Duality' does not complete the trilogy, Phillipe Fichot choosing to leave the project open-ended. The 'Histories' compilation discs appeared in 1998, with the next album 'Extremum/XX' appearing in 2000. Then followed the 'diptych' of 'InHuman' (2004) and 'ExHuman' (2006), continuing their release of interrelated concept albums.

"The Bach project" was released in January 2008, an album obviously devoted to Bach. Die Form first presented this work live during the annual Bach Days in the German city of Leipzig, where they got invited. Die Form has created a new show for this project with the German dancer Sabine Seume.

Die Form left Trisol to join Out of Line in late 2008. A new single, "Her[t]z Frequenz", was released in October 2008, followed by the "Best of XXX" in November 2008 (a compilation with reworked and remastered songs from the past 30 years). In 2009, "Noir Magnétique" saw Die Form back in a club-oriented sound. The album was made available on CD only, with a special edition limited to 999 copies in a box with a 7" single and extra artwork. Die Form created a new show with Laina Fischbeck on stage. In March 2010, a vinyl boxset compilation of early K-Cassette material was released on Vinyl-On-Demand. In 2011, a double-CD digipak limited edition of Sombre Printemps ("Ambient & Film Music 1+2") has been released on Out Of Line.


Philippe Fichot is the creator of Die Form, and has been a photographer for more than 43 years. His work is almost always in black & white, described as being, "an exploration of the subconscious of eroticism and of the dark poetry of the human body." An artist whose work continually seeks to expose the ultimate beauty, he has mastered the use of light and shade, as well as darkroom manipulation, to an extreme degree. Each photograph is timeless, like seen through old mirrors, and an esthetic offense bordering on the prohibited. The figures float between life and death in obscure fluids - perhaps drowned, or perhaps sleeping and always exposed to the eye of the voyeur. Eroticism (and sex) are in this case not excuses for exhibitionism, but a reflex of the soul which emerges from obscurity : absolute phantoms whose sensitive image commences to exist...

All these dream visions are projections of the theatre of the spirit. They are put on stage with precision and then reprocessed in the dark room by hand, engendering an unknown, microscopical and abstract reality under the surface of the picture. The ultimate dimension of passing time emerges... petrified beauty, a soiled and diaphanous icon.

The voluntary experience of pain is inherently human. It arises from the tragic and desperate foresight of the man who admits the obvious reality of death. It is no longer pretending that destiny that is reserved to others. Feigned or instinctive truth that man immediately raises as premise: since death will be, we will not be. Why then fear what we will never be confronted? This is not so much death that the idea of death that we should approach only because it is the source of our unalterable heavier lamentations. We try, in strategists to hide in our mind and Youth, supreme alliance manages to feed this decisive lie. However, time does its work every day and weighs on our conscience. The dead also. It is therefore not to suffer the pangs of waiting in this naive passivity that makes us vainly hope for mercy. Death, it is only the living who suffer and if "another day another life" 1, no one should forget that this is a life less.  Certainly, "philosophize, c is to learn to die "2 but there is an alternative expressed by Photogrammes: pain. This choice pushed to its climax annihilate not only what it produces but also any sensory expression. This absence is sensitive physiologically what brings us the most reasons that make us psychologically deny death. This is a quest ataraxie constantly renewed a state that is outside of consciousness: I have lost your eyes 3, ie the permeable medium that betrays being, feeling, feeling, in a word ending , life. The experience of pain is in this context a supposed knowledge of death, the materialization of the eternal unknown, a perception that goes astray. It is the execrable morphine calms evil without cure, physical violence for spiritual peace. Finally, it is unnecessary to mirror the girl with dead eyes 4. No need? No.

Photogrammes does a good job of creating a balance between the intense noise of the early work and the smoother, female-vocal dominated music of Poupee and Corpus. Production values are strong, with a good dynamic range. Stand-out tracks include "Will You Live Again?" "Long-Term Survivor," and "Experiment With Tears." If you are only familiar with DF's more techno-inspired work, this may take some getting used to, as it is definitely an industrial album, with a harder, more minimalist edge to it. But I think this is some of DF's most mature and interesting music (once again, speaking from a pre-Confessions standpoint). Overall, a solid album, and an excellent bridge between the harsh experimentalism of DF's past and the lush techno-goth that would be their future.

One of the most famous works of industrial fetish bdsm avantgarde kult, composed and performed by Philippe Fichot between 1989 and 1991: naive melodies and childish voices meet up in a harsh contrast with rough cyclic rhythmic gloominess, darkwave severance and other-dimensional psychedelia, delving up into continuous madness Now the album of 1990 in a new design and new remixes. Also this re-release comes back in beautiful digipack therefore offers all photo collectors back a newly designed booklet. "Corpus delicti" is one of the "catchy" The Shape Album is characterized by techno and electro-heavy sounds and includes with "Savage logic" and "Slavsex" two tracks, which at that time were able to cause a stir in the clubs and at the same time the first of Eliane were vocally supported. "Corpus delicti" is likely to be interesting to the form newcomers, since it hasn't trailed so experimentally far as its predecessors.

Marquis de Sade (2 June 1740 – 2 December 1814), was a French aristocrat, revolutionary politician, philosopher, and writer, famous for his libertine sexuality. His works include novels, short stories, plays, dialogues, and political tracts; De Sade is best known for his erotic works, which combined philosophical discourse with pornography, depicting sexual fantasies with an emphasis on violence, criminality, and blasphemy against the Catholic Church. He was a proponent of extreme freedom, unrestrained by morality, religion, or law. The words sadism and sadist are derived from his name.

Les Cent Vingt Journees de Sodome was written in 1785. Sade wrote The 120 Days of Sodom in the space of thirty-seven days in 1785 while he was imprisoned in the Bastille. Being short of writing materials and fearing confiscation, he wrote it in tiny writing on a continuous, twelve-metre-long (39.37 feet) roll of paper, made up of individual small pieces of paper smuggled into the prison and glued together. It tells the story of four wealthy male libertines who resolve to experience the ultimate sexual gratification in orgies. To do this, they seal themselves away for four months in an inaccessible castle in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, France, with a harem of 46 victims, mostly young male and female teenagers, and engage four female brothel keepers to tell the stories of their lives and adventures. The women's narratives form an inspiration for the sexual abuse and torture of the victims, which gradually mounts in intensity and ends in their slaughter. The work went unpublished until the early twentieth century.

D.F. Sadist School is a side profect of Die Form.
“For students of the extreme this educational aid should not be missed. In this side-project you will experience experimental chill out phases, as you learn the values of experimentation, and the importance of relaxation, after the rigors of the previous.”
