Back then in the early 80's Alien Sex Fiend appeared on the scene with a weird mixture of gothic and industrial influences. They was one of these bands that introduced me to the to the darker scene of music. Influenced by the music of Alice Cooper Alien Sex Fiend made their very unique sound of electronic music using loops and samples. This kind of sound was very new to us and when we were DJ-ing in these days their songs were about to getting the people on the dancefloor. It is long ago since I listened to their songs but I have to say many of them didn't lost it's fascination during the last decades.
Similar to this sound was in these days Front 242 which should be remembered as well.
