postindustrialcomputerpunk from Vancouver BC
I really don't know what to say about Basement. He should never had left it, perhaps? Another one-man act (but with mannequins 'playing' fake keyboards for backup), and a pre-programmed track for his set (at least he didn't have to toy with it), he produced a really tame industrial sound. Clearly heavily influenced by the likes of Trent Reznor, he was sadly simply no good - the sound was week and pop-like. It made Depeche Mode sound hard, the lyrics were inane and his voice rather weak - missing power and emotion.
