Desperate for a theme on this edition of We Have a Technical, we turned to the very number of the episode, good old 23. Now it’s no secret that good ol’ two-three has had more than it’s share of references in industrial music, so it actually ended up being a nice jumping off point for some discussions of various kinds within the scope of Our Thing. We also talked some polite Canadian trash about the fellas at Talking to Ghosts and had a nice chit chat with Michael Treveloni of Alter Der Ruine, so it was a good time all ways around.
