Dow Jones Synthesized

YouTube Tuesday for June 30, 2009: Dow Jones and the Industrials, Tone Set

This week’s installment of YouTube Tuesday explores some of the synthesized sounds created in the wake of Dow Jones and the Industrials; one of the most influential punk/post-punk bands to come out of the Midwest. The repercussions of the sonic explosion that was Dow Jones and the Industrials gave us the Tone Set, Pointless, Dumb but Happy, Tim North and his Hoverdrum, and Sauce of the Future. Check out all the videos after the turn along with some serendipitous finds that include San Francisco’s Units and French futurists Space. EPM “Have Spacesuit will Play Synth” Out!

  • I was/am a big fan of Galen Herod. Didn’t know about Tone Set until I tried to find a rerelease of the GH cassette I had in high school. I can’t believe they got airplay on MTV, if only once.
