Godspeed You! Black Emperor is a Canadian experimental music collective which originated in Montreal, Quebec in 1994. The group releases recordings through Constellation, an independent record label also located in Montreal. After the release of their debut album in 1997, the group toured regularly from 1998 to 2002. In 2003, the band announced an indefinite hiatus in order for members to pursue other musical interests. In the intervening period, the group was occasionally rumored to have broken up, but finally reconvened for a tour which began in late 2010. Since reforming, they have released four more albums, including Luciferian Towers (2017) and G_d’s Pee at State’s End! (April 2021).

  4. Seems like BIGO has been scraping the bottom of the barrel for some time now. These posts really suck. Shitty artists, bad sound etc. Maybe BIGO should just fold up shop.

  7. Derrick/HHH/Nelson I havent been on in quite awhile. The zips, gooks, slopes, sissies, trannies, homos, lez, dykes, fairies, pedophiles and swappers have taken over the website. I no longer comment except today. If Deep Purple comes to your town, definel=tely check them out. Still Have Ian Paice, Roger Glover and Ian Gillian. Jon Lord is taking a dirt nap and Ritchie Blackmore is fucked up on acid somewhere
