“Back To Mine” with Soft Riot, out now at DMC World Magazine
The online electronic music magazine DMC World reached out with a request to contribute a list of some favourite tracks for their “Back To Mine” series on their website. 10 tracks were chosen in all!
A double-entry for the Canadian (1985) and American (1993) versions of the The Tower, both made-for-TV movies involving powerful, master computers in state-of-the-art (for the time) office buildings that go bezerk and start killing people! Both films are of dubious quality but provide a certain entertainment value. This entry is a bit of a contrast and comparison between the two and delves a bit into aesthetics, Canadian film and the little known genre of Canuxploitation.
