It is with honor and privilege that I present to you the new live-album from Agent Side Grinder – Hardware Comes Alive! After releasing their latest album "Hardware" in early 2012, Agent Side Grinder headed out on tour throughout western Europe. One of the dates were at Péniche le Sonic, a converted barge moored along a quay in Lyon, France, where this live recording was made on 17 May. ASG has built up a dedicated following through radio play in France and the gig was hotly anticipated. Agent Side Grinder prefer using analogue equipment and eschew the use of backing tapes when playing live. Consequently this live album was recorded on a 1978-vintage cassette recorder, using no post processing except for some very basic mastering. This disc catches ASG at their raw hypnotic best, right at the crossroads between post-punk, bleak industrial electronics and psychedelia. Even without the visuals, it goes a long way towards explaining why they are such a brilliant live act.

Agent Side Grinder - Look Within (05:06)
lp:Hardware 2012 (MrLsin)All rights belong to Agent Side Grinder.Sweden's rocking electro monster Agent Side Grinder burst onto the scene in 2008 with their eponymous debut album. The music was an uncompromising, never-heard blend of industrial, post-punk, old style EBM and electro topped with the apocalyptic crooning of singer Kristoffer Grip. British music fanzine 20JazzFunkGreats called them a "sensation of uncomfortable pleasure".On their second album "Irish Recording Tape", the band developed their musical style further. The songs were maybe more accessible, but the typical elements were intact: drilling industrial sounds, hypnotic synth sequences, feverish vocals and post-punk influenced bass lines. To quote Vice Magazine Germany: "...one of the few bands, which is actually in a position to deal with the legacy of Joy Division". The interest in the band resulted in three European tours and an invitation to support genre forefathers Suicide.In recent years, Agent Side Grinder has moved towards a bigger and more textured sound. This is evident on their latest work "Hardware", released in early 2012. On this record, ASG once again steps into their musical time-machine, has a rendezvous with old masters such as Kraftwerk, Einsturzende Neubaten and Depeche Mode and invite them all on a reckless, rhythmic journey into a bleak future.
