-OK today should have been another CD giveaway, but frankly the participation is pathetic so the rules are changing. (We can do that, it's our site and our CDs!) We'll have one last winner drawn on July 31st. The prize will be a BRAND NEW copy of Leæther Strip "Anal Cabaret - A Tribute to Soft Cell"!! All previous contest entries are invalid, so you must enter again to win this one.

-Past winners: Don't worry, you're getting your CDs... they just haven't been mailed out yet!

-According to Metropolis Records, today is the release of Front 242's "Reboot" CD. Strangely, I saw copies of it on sale here in Toronto last Saturday!


July 19, 1998
-There's a search site that boasts a database of over 3000 "techno" (electronic) websites. I haven't looked into it too heavily, but here's the link. Strangely, it's got a rather dull and non-techno domain name: www.networkin.com

-If you don't already know about it, check out "The Descent", a University of Minnesota radio show, 6pm-8pm CST on Saturdays. The show (and other shows on this station) can be heard at this address: http://160.94.75.16/live.ram

-If you're into HEAVY noisey industrial, check out Substate Reactor.

-I heard Haujobb cancelled their US tour...

-Another band here (looks like they may be goth) Narcissus Wept. (Site has no audio
samples.)


July 15, 1998
-Electronic Deconstruction, the internet industrial radio show has a new show up (finally!). Don't miss it and the included music review courtesy of yours truly, Rabies.

-Where are the reviews? Good question...

-July 14th came and went... worst birthday of my life. Anyways, it was also the 2nd drawing in our CD giveaway. The winner was "Val" from Belarus (ex-USSR), and he gets Psychopomps "Assassins DK United".


July 11, 1998
-Mentallo and the Fixer are no more! They are going their seperate ways. Apparently they have differing goals, musically, so this was for the best. Thanks to Rance for the info.


July 8, 1998
-25 CDs were added to the Trading Post Nuclear for sale list!


July 7, 1998
-Today was our first drawing in our CD giveaway. The winners and their chosen prizes:
    Nate Winter - Out Out's "Voiceprint"
    Emily Cheng - Sunshine Blind's "Liquid"

-5 new reviews were added to the Music Exile

-The Dan formerly known as Darklight has put up his new mailing address in our Contact section. If you were planning on submitting CDs for review, make sure you have this latest snail mail address.


July 5, 1998
-Darklight is no longer using the handle Darklight. From now on it's just Dan. So subsequently, check out Dan's Top Ten which was updated today.

-Here's some news I've been sitting on:

  • KLIK TV is looking for music videos: Contact information is available at http://www.sabocon.de

  • If you're into the "cross-over" guitar industrial sound, check out San Jose, California band Stormdrain. (Personally, I find the samples they have up too slow.)

  • Other bands that let us know about their websites are Zoar, and Elusory

  • The small label DSBP has just released Futronik Structure vol.2, an 18 track dance-oriented industrial compilation featuring some great bands.

  • Here's an online radio show featuring all kinds of electronic music: http://members.xoom.com/ElectroRadio

  • And finally, it's nice to see how the net unites people with the same interests from across the world. This site in France has some nice things to say about us (and some MP3s!)

-It's July! Happy Birthday to us! Happy Birthday to us! Wrapped IN Wire is amazingly one year old this month! Let's see, 361 CD reviews. Not bad... we were hoping for 400 but so what...

To celebrate we are giving away CDs every 7 days. (July 7, 14, 21, and 28) To enter you must email us to get into the week's random drawing. (You have to enter again for each week.) The great part is that you get to choose your prize from the list of CDs in the Trading Post Nuclear section. So here you are, pick a CD, and then send us an email with your name and email address.

-Darklight finally moved out of the garage and has internet access again. Expect a ton of new CD reviews to be posted soon.
