Club Nevermore: Lore is next Saturday, October 15, 2022 at The Labyrinth in Little Rock. It’s this month’s edition of Club Nevermore, Arkansas’s one-and-only monthly goth-industrial event. This one will have goth+industrial sets by Club Nevermore’s resident DJs, a guest dark EDM set by DJ King Qizzli, a flesh hook suspension, a costume contest with cash prizes, Halloween bingo, and more! Tickets and further info are available at ClubNevermore.com.
We started this show with some goth tracks and a couple of songs referencing the moon and lycanthropy, because this show happened on a full moon. DJ 10.29 from Club Nevermore came by to talk about the upcoming event on October 15th. Then we played some darkwave tracks. Then Operator OT and DJ 10.29 chatted about Club Nevermore and flesh hook suspension. We played some deathrock tracks, then we talked a little about horror movies. We played some noise rock tracks, then we followed that with a set of tracks by indigenous North American and Native American black metal artists. We finished the show with a set of shoegaze, experimental, and ambient tracks.
Note: The volume levels may be a bit inconsistent while DJ 10.29 is talking because his audio was a bit weak, so we boosted the volume in post-production editing.
This was Half Machine Lip Moves’s 200th episode—and our first of October 2022! We started with a “mood setting” block, which was a mix of deathrock and dark punk. We followed that with a set of goth, deathrock, and post-punk. Then we started the show proper by revisiting our playlist from episode #2, which wasn’t recorded. The third block was a set of industrial and industrial metal. The fourth block was a set of digital hardcore, industrial, and minimal wave. The fifth block was a mix of minimal wave and synthpop and experimental tracks. The sixth block was a set of ominous dark ambient and death industrial, then we finished the episode with a dark ambient set.
We started this show with some new industrial and synthwave tracks. Then we played tracks by some synthpop and synthpunk artists playing show in the Central Arkansas area in the near future. Then we played some goth and post-punk tracks. That was followed with a set of post-punk songs, then a set of noise and power electronics, and we closed the show with some shoegaze, experimental, and dark folk, all of which were themed around fall/autumn.
We kicked off this show with some mostly new post-punk, goth, and darkwave. We followed that with a set of post-punk and darkwave tracks. That was followed with a block of techno EBM and new beat songs. We played some heavier industrial and a speedcore/gabba track in the set after that. We played some post-punk tracks in the midnight block, then we finished up the show with some ambient, mallsoft, and comfy synth tracks.
I (Operator OT) didn’t expect the show to happen this week, yet it did anyway. We debuted a new track by Vazum and played some tracks by artists who are playing shows in the Central Arkansas area in the near future. The following three blocks were a mix of goth, industrial, darkwave, synthwave, etc. and were mostly the tracks I played in my DJ sets at the September 10th Club Nevermore event. The fifth block was a set of hot new industrial tracks, then we closed with a couple of shoegazey tracks.
Here are my (Operator OT) set lists from Club Nevermore’s event on September 10, 2022. Thanks to everyone who came out to the event, as well as Club Nevermore and The Labyrinth for having me! Follow Club Nevermore for details on their future events.
We kicked off this show with a set of new goth, darkwave, and post-punk tracks. We followed that with a set of industrial and EBM tracks. Then we switched gears and played some no wave and noise rock tracks, which had an underlying theme. (Hint: Labor Day weekend.) Then we went back to the industrial grind with some industrial tracks. The midnight block was a set of noisy old school industrial tracks, then we finished the show with a set of shoegaze and comfy synth tracks.
This show began with a set of new synthpop and darkwave tracks. The following block was a set of hard EBM tracks. We followed that with a set of synthpop, minimal wave, and darkwave songs. The next set was one of noisy and heavy industrial tracks. We played some sludgy noise rock sets in the midnight block, then we finished the show with a set of dungeon synth tracks.
We began the show with some new post-punk tracks. The following four blocks were a mix of EBM, darkwave, post-punk, goth, etc. tracks comprised of songs I played in my DJ sets at the Club Nevermore event on August 13, 2022. We played a set of noisy industrial and power noise tracks in the midnight block. Then we finished the show with some shoegaze, ambient, and comfy synth tracks—including three cat-themed tracks ‘cause we forgot to play something in honor of International Cat Day (August 8).
