Website Retooling

by Broadway Calhoun on November 14th, 2013

Hi!

I’m sorry that I never update this. Over the next few weeks. Misanthro-Pop will be undergoing a vast overhaul, bringing it up-to-date with my latest work. This includes music, writing and computer games.

Bear with us for a little bit longer!

Thanks!

1-900-GARY

by Broadway Calhoun on November 14th, 2013

HEY, I made a game last month for the Asylum Game Jam.

It’s called 1-900-Gary, and it’s a terrifying tale! I think. Or something. It was made in RPGMaker VX ACE over the course of 48 hours.

Windows users can grab it here. Mac users…I’m sorry.

There will be more of this in future! Probably.

His first 7″, aptly titled “American Made” is available now from:

Misanthro-Pop Hosts The Liberty Snake Episode 9 Tonight in London

by Broadway Calhoun on November 4th, 2011

3GBP with flyer or Liberty Snake Badge, 4 without.

FREE ZINES ON THE DOOR WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

LIVE:
Now Wash Your Hands (Power Electronics from Nottingham, UK)

http://www.myspace.com/washyourhandsnow

“Nathan Nothing was failing at music so he decided the only option left was to take up noise (or power electronics to be specific). He also wanted an outlet for his grumpy foul tempers and to humiliate himself onstage for others’ amusement wearing special costumes. There is nothing more important than being clean and nothing cleans the head out better than a healthy blast of noise! (Always wash your hands). Death to false noise!”

Soft Riot (London, UK)

http://www.softriot.com/

“A casual project that formed in the mid-naughties under the original name JJ Wax, Soft Riot’s original angle was “ambient punk”, fusing elements of drone-y post-rock, minimal wave electro…nics, synthesizer-based cinema soundtracks and a bit of chordal mass composition.”

DJS:

Sereina Noelle Winters (Berlin/California)
Hailing from America and coming all the way from Germany, Sereina will be playing cold-wave/post-punk non-hits from yesteryear.

Emi Trashbeat & Zevoa (Never Come Back)
After her excellent DJ set at The Liberty Snake 8, Emi Trashbeat has opened her own club with Zevoa, Never Come Back. We welcome her back with open arms, and welcome Zevoa to the snakedance.

Misanthro-Pop Release DJs will be playing their usual eclectic mix of outsider bad-wave.

Let’s set the X68000 heart on fire!

Formed in February 2007, The Liberty Snake is a sporadic music event that attempts to provide a lighthearted night of fun and dancing for people with a particular taste.

The club first started out with a heavy emphasis on French cold-wave and industrial music, but now has a much broader focus, playing several different genres of “oddities” and anti-music.

The Liberty Snake is hosted by Robert M Fenner (Nurvuss, RMF-Noir No Kisses.)

cold-wave / no-wave / bad-trip / minimal / gloom jazz / misanthropop / new savage / post-industrial soul / port-mortem / post-office / oddities / no italo disco
