Hashmoder's "STABBING BASSLINE" Stamp Of Aproval

Front Line Assembly is a Canadian industrial/EBM band formed by Bill Leeb in 1986 after leaving Skinny Puppy (another Canadian industrial/EBM band).

In 1990, I was in Chicago buying records and CD’s. I was looking for industrial music. With the help of one of the store’s staff who was exposing me to a lot of industrial music artists, he placed this particular CD single in my hand (the very same one pictured above). He was kind enough to unwrap and put it inside a CD player. And then he handed me the heaphones and made me listen to Provision. I was immediately blown away from the very first beat/note. After few measures, the pulsating & punchy basslines kicked in. Knocked me off my feet. I just had to have it. So I bought it.

Read this fantastic article If You Only Knew (Chip E.) and interview of Chip E. (Irwin Larry Eberhart II, 43) posted by Jacob Arnold from the Gridface blog.  Chip E. (also known as The Godfather of House) was the first artist to release a dance track which contained the words “house” and “jack,” and therefore spawning so many House tracks to be released by other House artists, also contained such words (either in the title and/or hook):  7 Ways To Make You Jack (Hercules),  Jack Your Body (Steve Silk Hurley), Jack To The Sound Of The Underground (Fast Eddie), House Nation (House Master Boyz), etc.
