    SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TWO: LUX // IDIOTA CIVILIZZATO // TOM ELLIS

    Berlin Community Radio’s Mr and Mr Power once again take a break from embarassing themselves on the airwaves to host a NIGHT OF PUNK!
     
    Guests of honour this time around include Barcelona’s hot new item, LUX as well as Berlin up n comers IDIOTA CIVILIZZATO who have just flushed out a debut 7″ with London’s Static Shock Records… records potentially to be physically brought across the pond by Static Shock Label boss and GUEST DJ FOR THE NIGHT, TOM ELLIS! He’ll be joined behind the decks by none other than the other Static Shocker Herr CHRISTIAN IFFLAND *applause* and stealth pilot DUCKFACE as well as of course THE FREAK and maybe Nordberg. Doors and DJs from 21:00, drinks specials and strong vibe.

    IDIOTA CIVILAZZATO [7″ EP Launch]
    Ahem, “Who put these 4 people in a room together?! What is the Italian version of Midwest USA? And how did it show up in Berlin? These weirdoes look like they met at a bus station and together make up the ripping hardcore version of a house of cards that feels like it could fall apart at any moment and then it does but thats actually how the song goes so uno, due, tre, quattro and on with the next one, kapisce paisan? Just like that freak from The Grabbies learned to speak English by listening to punk and repeating the word FUCK, Idiota is gonna teach you a little bit of Italian with some catchy romance language grunts and groans, the meanderings of a blue collar immigrant stuck in a kitchen behind a door, away from the public, away from people. This is the sound of pent up frustration and the things you do to keep your head above water in a world that doesnt understand you and doesnt want to try. The tension built up from not being able to have a wank because too many of your workmates are crashing on your floor. This is the sound of writing songs in the kitchen after nightshift. This is some stylised vintage sounding shit!”

    ABOUT
     
    FAKE LAUGH
    … is the recording project of London/Berliner Kamran Khan. Kamran started writing songs at age 12 while living in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. After moving to London to study philosophy, he started experimenting with home recording. Early recordings were mostly covers of artists whose influence can still be heard in his sound today, such as The Beach Boys, Everly Brothers and The Beatles. After witnessing the emergence of bedroom producers, Kamran decided to adopt the DIY approach with his own songs. His initial aim was to write simple, melodic and carefree songs. Having released AA single Mind Tricks / Birdsong Lullaby and two EPs: Ice and Great Ideas last year, 2017 will see the release of the first full-length Fake Laugh record. // Soundcloud
     

     
    //
     
    MOTHER OF THE UNICORN
    The four-piece forms around singer Joe Kelly who thereby expanded the solo-project he had begun working on in London. Atmospheric indie leaning on krautrock and experimental pop influences. Dreamy, layered and deeply immersed in sublime sonority; these quick French, yoghurt, lemon and balsamic dressings make eating your greens a pleasure. There last album Variations was produced by Tad Klimp (FENSTER/SAROOS/SLOW STEVE). New album out later this year.

    VENTURE LOWS
    Theres nothing ordinary about Venture Lows, right down to the fact 2/3rds of the group are bassists. The East London outfit have been a long time in the making. Back in 2015, they released debut track Summer/RIP, a Tom Vek-nodding pop blitz that waved farewell to the passing season and, appropriately, arrived before the world went to bits in 2016. The group stayed completely silent in that time, but theyre taking a second step with the hyperactive, intelligent Brenda.

    UNHAPPYBIRTHDAY [Night People, DE]
    Falling a bit into an early Factory records mode, unhappybirthday use punchy drum machines to lock down the mechanical foundation of a sound that uses bright crystalline guitar lines to create contrast with somber submerged bass and synth fuzz. They have that upbeat sad song thing going that always feels so good. We can’t help but think if Jürgen Gleue and the 39 Clocks had made soundtracks for those early John Hughes films this is what it might sound like.

    MILE ME DEAF [AT/Siluh]
    Their new album is a swan song for the human race. In his previous albums, mastermind Wolfgang Möstl has hinted at his penchant for dystopic fictions that he links to the fragile status-quo of the current state of affairs. With Alien Age, however, he has abondoned the fuzz-and-thrash sound of his previous albums. Sampled beats and loops set the stage for his new album, reducing the 90s indie rock sound of past records to homeopathic doses. This time, dub, vaporwave, jazz and ambient come in the foreground. // Homepage

    JARNO VARSTED AND THE BACK SLIDERS
    For over a decade Danish native Jarno Varsted has been pushing his blues to people around the world in various outfits such as Straight From The Harp, Rumspringa. In recent years he has been working mainly as a solo artist offering stripped down performances accompanying himself on harmonica and guitar only, proving himself one of Europe’s most interesting renewers of the tradition. This time he has teamed up with legendary Berlin axe slinger Rico Lee, known from bands The Still and as a solo pefromer fronting his own trio. Rico and Jarno back each other on new arrangements of their songs along with new compositions. Together the form a powerful and charismatic package, leaving audiences in awe wherever they go.

    ELECTRIC ANTHILLMAN
    … spielen schnelle, kompakte quirlige New Wave Songs mit Elementen aus Disco, Funk und einer Portion Merkwürdigkeit. Kurioserweise spielten oder tanzten einzelne Mitglieder bereits Ende der 70er Jahre für Jane Fondas Gymnastikvideos und -Schallplatten. Sei dies auch nur ein Gerücht – wenn man die Band live sieht, mag man es nicht anders glauben!

    KILLING POPES
    … sind die Masterminds Oliver Steidle an den Drums und der Bassist Petter Eldh aus Schweden. Beide sind seit Jahren international hoch profilierte und angesagte Musiker. Petter Eldh spielt u.a.mit Django Bates, dem Trondheim Jazz Orchestra sowie Marius Neset und der Neue deutsche Jazzpreisgewinner von 2008 und 2010 Oliver Steidle ist vor allem durch seine Zusammenarbeit mit Der Rote Bereich, Peter Brötzmann, Philm, SoKo Steidle oder Klima Kalima bekannt. Beide verbindet eine Leidenschaft für rhythmisch orientierte Musik: Petter kommt sozusagen vom HipHop und Oliver hörte in seiner Jungend Grindcore und Punk. Musikstile, die zudem einen stark gesellschaftskritischen Charakter besitzen, wie der Jazz in seinen besten Jahren. Dies als stilistische Grundlage bieten die Kompositionen der beiden Alles, was den Jazz heute ausmacht: Rhythmisch komplex, catchy Melodien und Platz für Improvisationen. Der Wahl-Berliner Frank Möbus ist seit Jahren eine Instanz der internationalen Jazz-Szene. Seine Zusammenarbeit mit Carlos Bica und Jim Black, Daniel Erdmann und vor allem sein eigenes Projekt Der Rote Bereich, weisen ihn als uniquen, eigenständigen Künstler aus. Als Sideman bei den Killing Popes trifft er auf seinen langjährigen Wegbegleiter und drummer des Roten Bereichs, Oli Steidle. Kit Downes aus England erhielt 2008 den BBC Jazz Award als Rising Star. Er ist Leader des viel beachteten Trios Troyka und The Enemy (mit Petter Eldh und James Maddren) spielt mit Julian Arguelles, Benny Greb und Squarepusher. Dan Peter Sundland ist einer der vielversprechendsten Musiker der jungen norwegischen Musikszene. Sein eigenes Projekt mit Steve Heather, Philipp Gropper und Antonis Anessegos hat durchwegs sehr gute Kritiken bekommen.

    AMIGO TROPICAL
    Ich habe Amigo Tropical am Hochzeitsfest von Dina und Martin (=Kunstlerfreunde in Berlin) im Frühsommer gesehen, es war ein warmer, früher Abend, die ersten Biere waren gerade getrunken, als ohne Vorwarnung ein wunderbares, reinigendes Gewitter aus Krach, Breakbeats und Bass uber uns herfiel. Die beiden Musiker machten noch beim Soundcheck einen eher verspielten Eindruck, leicht verkleidet kamen sie daher, mit Stahlhelm und Schnurrbart, im Unterhemd und auch durchaus fröhlich. Aber mit dem ersten Ton setzte ein verzuckendes Lärmen ein, welches erst durch den Schluss der Darbietung ein Ende fand – zwischendurch gab es am laufenden Band neue musikalische Ideen in einem derartigen Stakkato, zerhackt und wieder auf den Punkt gebracht, dass euerm Autor dieser Zeilen der Mund offenblieb und er nicht umhin konnte die Burschen vom Fleck weg zu engagieren. Diese Musik einzuordnen oder zu kategorisieren ist in naheligender Weise schwierig. Anders als die zahlreichen Duos mit Metal-Hintergrund wurde ich die Basis eher auf Punk und Noise im besten Sinne sehen, industrial-brachialer Krach auf hohem intelektuellen Niveau – experimentelle Avantgarde mit Humor und Wissen. Mir kommen MERZBOW oder HELMET in den Sinn, der erste wegen seiner musikalischen Offenheit, die zweitgenannten wegen der rollenden und trotzdem hackenden Welle, die nicht aufhört. Oder VIOLENT ONSEN GEISHA mit ihrer totalen Abgedrehtheit. – SCHLOCKMASTER // Homepage
