Can I say, as a toxic misanthrope approaching old age, you two squabbling is the rivalry this place deserves, far better than my one-sided bullying of Corpse.

Futurism might be overrated, or at least, not something to be striven for consciously, in a programmatic way but the new is essential. We can't live without it because life is so boring and the pallete gets jaded.

So setting out to make a tune that sounds like a spaceship docking, probably not going to end well, albeit I have a secret affection for kuedo who does just that. But there is a logic to the development of music, just as there is a kind of logic to the dual evolution of predator and prey, not predictable necessarily, but it unfolds over time in a way which makes some kind of sense

The thing is, I don't know if there is an alternative. I don't think you can avoid it. Unless you make music which is the equivalent of a mock Tudor mansion

How would you, sitting on all that constantly evolving tech, avoid being futuristic? There's no way out of this corridor, have to keep walking

jungle was in pursuit of Now, metalheadz in pursuit of the future.

jungle's brilliant and metalheadz is cringe-inducingly embarrassing.

Now is the future without the embarrassing aesthetic baggage that comes with it.
Fair enough. you'll have a hard time convincing the musicians though. They keep doing things like giving themselves the name 'Future'
