M.I.O.S. – Live at Festival of Industrial Music, Prague 1989 (CS Industrial 1982-2010)

23Jun - by admin - 0 - In Material Music

A mysterious duo consisting of two industrial performers (D.U. and B), M.I.O.S is a crucial part of a specific chapter in the history of Czechoslovakian extreme music of the second half of the 80’s. Simple ritual aesthetics, noisy tapes, intensive work with metal and iron material, noises and abusing musical and non-musical instruments are the main elements of M.I.O.S.’s music, and this release (CS Industrial’s sixth) shows them at the height of their creativity during their live performance at the first Festival of Industrial Music at club Delta in Prague (April 1989).

The performance was divided in three parts, which were accompanied by specific stage performance with the elements of “modern primitivism”, when the performers themselves became part of post-apocalyptic tribe holding their ritual of metal and noise, using special brass instruments, extraordinary body paint, broken glass on stage and other elements which were highly uncommon in Czechoslovakian music scene of late 80’s.
