Well, being that I can't sleep I decided to give a little history lesson for local Calgary industrial bands and anybody that's interested in this particular topic. So, I'll start here first:
I think this was probably the first industrial label to open shop in Calgary; Interdimensional Industries. They were an electronic, experimental, techno/industrial type label. Some of the bands on their roster were: Voice Industrie (which I opened for for one of their shows here way back in 2003), Cryptomnesia (which was Reagen's band, and Reagen ran Interdimensional), releveleR, Landscape Body Machine, Toxic Shock Syndrome (This guy put on a lot of shows at all kind of events, think he might have done a Demonika show or two way back in the day! Also, know he did rave shows too!). I do believe that Interdimensional now operate out of Edmonton but I'm not sure if that's true or not cause I heard a couple years back they were coming back to Calgary.
This next label to open up in Calgary is called: Gashed! It started up in 1998 by Eric Deegan as a division of Mimicry Distro
When it was first established, Gashed! sought solely to give a voice and business avenue for deserving, innovative and professional artists that went overlooked and unappreciated by larger industrial labels.Over the course of four years and 14 releases the label helped launch and/or forward the careers of many quality electronic industrial artists such as Assemblage 23, Negative Format and Aghast View, often at little or no financial gain to the label.
