Most people know Christoph de Babalon for his groundbreaking debut album If You’re Into It, I’m Out Of It. Well, that was put out over 10 years ago, and since then he’s sorta been flying under the radar having released only a few EPs and 12”s since then. But it was just last year that he released Scylla & Charybdis on his own label Cross Fader Entertainment, and has upcoming releases on Zhark and Falsch.
Hopefully this means that he’ll be playing live with some regularity, because he plays the sort of gloomy industrial that I like. I can only imagine how he went over when he opened for Radiohead for a tour of southern Europe in 2001.
Christoph de Babalon live at Raum 18 in Berlin, 27 November 2009.
