Among all the guest musicians, I’m curious to see I666 (one of the earliest industrial groups in Hong Kong, led by Dickson), Subrosa soundsystem (who will shoot a documentary about this tour, as previously reported by GNO) and Aitar (Shanghai-based industrial duo which had two albums out but remained silent afterwards, compoased of B6 & MHP). If possible, GNO would like to do a live coverage of the whole tour, stay tuned.
