The return of Red Flag

I placed an order for the following Red Flag CDs a few days ago:


  • Time is the Reaper (Album)
  • Remnants
  • RMXDI
  • RMXDII
  • Once Past Twice Future
  • Halo
  • Time is the Reaper (Single)
  • My Door is Open
  • Misery Loves Company
  • Unleash all Hell

Red Flag, a classic Californian electro-gothic and synthpop band, is finally back with albums and singles. YES!

What does this band sound most like?

Chuang Shyue Chou said...

In the late eighties, their sound was somewhat reminiscent of late eighties Depeche Mode. Today, Red Flag had veered off in a more industrial and gothic direction. A more mellow sound.

Chuang Shyue Chou said...

A more mellow sound in terms of vocals. The direction, however, is not more mellow. Darker in feel.

I just always pause when I see the "pop" description, which denotes nothing of the type of music, and often is used to mean "low quality"

I think I've heard two songs by Depeche Mode.

Chuang Shyue Chou said...

I think pop is a meaningless word sometimes. Short for popular. Anything can be pop really.

Electronic band. It's usually a dirty word in the USA. I think Red Flag is an undiscovered and unrealised gem. Great electronic music that remains unappreciated.

Sorry, if my replies on your blog and my blog are delayed. I try to reply to everything.

But I temper that with moderation because I don't want to be consumed by being online, doing blogs, facebook, etc.

I live close to Detroit, which is supposed to be a world electronic music capitol. But no-one knows about it, it appears to only be covered outside the US.

It is like when World Cup football (soccer) was held in the US. No one inside the US knew or cared.

Chuang Shyue Chou said...

Detroit! Detroit techno, I guess i am surprised. I thought there would be at least a following in the USA.

I wonder what they were thinking when they held the World Cup in the USA in 1994. Likewise, a Formula One race.

Chuang Shyue Chou said...

There are actually many good American electronic bands, not those of the techno/rap/Britney Spears sort. However, I doubt if they will find favour with the mass public any time in their lifetimes.
