Jim underwent surgery and a battery of chemo treatments that almost killed him via a pancreatic infection. Happily, he not only pulled through - he beat the cancer. As a way of giving back to the medical community that saved his life, and the industrial music community that had been such a big part of his life, he decided to put together a massive multi-CD compilation with proceeds to go to the Foundation for Cancer Research and Wellness.
"Electronic Saviors: Industrial Music to Cure Cancer" is the result of a lot of hard work on Jim's part and covers the entire spectrum under the umbrella of "industrial" - noise, experimental, EBM, synth-pop, IDM, industrial metal, electro, and more are all on display on this sprawling, limited edition comp. The 4-CD (plus a bonus 5th digital disc) set features names like Suicide Commando, Chemlab, 16 Volt, Combichrist, Nachtmahr, Leaetherstrip, and... uh... yours truly.
