This is such a great song. I would never have found it if Jade and Davey of Blaqk Audio hadn't mentioned VNV Nation in an interview. Discoveries like this is one of the reasons why I love music and read up on musicians and their influences.
To me it's like a treasure hunt, and it's made me quite a few friends over the years. Sometimes I get nostalgic for the old days (ie the early 1990's) when I traded cassette tapes with people in other countries. I sent out quite a few bags of swedish candy and some homemade jewelry. In return I got tapes of Bauhaus and Swoon 23.
Torrents and downloads don't come with handwritten cards from other continents.
