NOM is an acronym for the Russian “Informal Youth Organization” (Neformalnoe Obyedinenie Molodezhi), the term used by the official Soviet press in the 80es. The band “NOM” appeared in St. Petersburg in 1987 as an absurdistic-ironical answer to rock bands in post-soviet Russia. The band used musical cliches mixed queerly together with elements of mimic show of idiots, thus reaching strong emotional effect over the audience.
“The kings of St.Petersburg” remain unique phenomenon of Russian music culture. For the 32 years of existence the band created their own style, in which you can discover elements of progressive rock, punk, electronic minimalism, symphonic music , Russian folk, Soviet music and even opera. Lyrics plays very important role for NOM who follows traditions of such bright representatives of modern Russian poetry like Nikolay Gogol, Daniil Kharms, Nikolay Oleynikov and others. Critics called NOM “The last bastion of ruthless Russian satire”.
Their discography includes 15 studio and 4 concert albums, several compilations, remixes, and a special release “Russisches scweine” on British Manufracture label.
Wunderblock Records, in a partnership with Berlin-based ready made Distribution, would like to present its new vinyl sublabel Folgsamkeitfaktor [FSFR]. The new sublabel will be focused on heavy industrial and EBM-influenced technopunk sound.
With a first release scheduled for this spring, we plan series of the new label showcases in Berlin, Moscow and St.Petersburg.
The first Showcase is hosted by Berlin’s cult industrial and rock venue – Urban Spree.

@YOUNG WIDOWS (US) + HEADS. (DE)
Since their inception in 2006, Young Widows have released four studio albums – each pushing their restless drive towards the incomparable a little further. Those albums – Settle Down City (2006), Old Wounds (2008), In and Out of Youth and Lightness (2011), and Easy Pain (2014) – were as bruising as they were brilliant, as menacing as they were mysterious.
DECAYED: Ten Years of Cities, Wounds, Lightness, and Pain perfectly charts Young Widows evolution from inspired post-hardcore trio to peerless entity crafting profound combinations of post-punk, noise rock, heavy psych, and gothic folk.
The fifteen tracks in this collection originally appeared on stand-alone singles, b-side, splits with like-minded artists (including Bonnie Prince Billy, Pelican, Melt-Banana, and MY DISCO), and rare compilations. Four of them have never
been released until now.
Of the many impressive aspects of Young Widows decade-plus run as a band, perhaps most remarkable is the quality and breadth of music they made that didn’t appear on their albums.
Every song here is a standout track from the evolving eras of the band, and as with all things Young Widows, DECAYED pays respect to the past while planting roots for the future.
– collectively Ed Fraser, Chris Breuer and Peter Voigtmann, are an Australian/German three-piece post punk band formed in Berlin in 2014 by two native Germans and one wandering Australian.
HEADS. released their debut LP on This Charming Man Records / Cargo Records in 2015, followed by the full-length record ‘Collider’ in April 2018, and toured extensively throughout Europe and North America from 2015 – 2018 with the likes of METZ, NOTHING, WHORES., DOPE BODY and PROTOMARTYR among others.
Forensics presents: MESSY – An Intimate Evening with James Majesty
James Majesty is delighted & extremely desperate to debut his One Woman Disaster in the Berlin. After loosing the cult TV show “The Boulet Brothers Dragula” to some basic Biqtch, he released an ear bleeding album “PERVERT” (still available on iTunes).
Now that he’s been pushed out of the U.S., James is coming home…with his reputation in decline, and his Instagram following rapidly decreasing; he’s attempting to boost his ego and following with minimal effort & even less talent.
Join the self-proclaimed ICON for a night of inappropriate humor, AMAZING live singing, and half assed lip-syncs.
No matter how hard you try, it’s a truly unforgettable evening. You’ll regret not missing this Messy Night with Majesty.

“underneath DISTEL’s third full length release lies a thorough personal re-evaluation of truth, unveiling and being. ‘wapens’ is the dutch word for ‘weapons’ and also translates to ‘family crests‘ or ‘coats of arms‘. however, a third sense, more specifically related to the kindred word ‘wapenen‘, is explored in the title track’s lyrics which propose a state of being wherein the self becomes an existential monolith – becomes focally reinforced in the sense that its presence refers first and foremost to only its own individual being instead of the networks of meaning that we tend to define ourselves by.
DISTEL’s intention while working on this album was to achieve a more direct, massive and monolithic sound than before: to channel most energy through an insistent impulse within the rhythmic and melodic movement – from stomping stabs to legato motion – and make every other embellishment secondary. this initial thought is the core of the music on this album and an overall synthesised modern classical mode is the guideline for new tracks. another aim is to show more colour, truth and openness – and this openness is obviously echoed in the sound of the album itself. thematically ‘wapens’ includes many references to end times, apocalyptic visions, embodiment and authenticity towards death. while its predecessors presented the ‘muffled sounds from within’, now the pandora‘s box has been opened for all to gaze upon its vast spectrum of horrors.
the self-applied tag ‘ultra / angst pop’ could now be redefined from the original industrial-based minimal electronics into a unique contemporary strain of high energy synth-pop-noir, or ‘dark energy’. a quite evocative mixture of excellent subliminal rhythm machine programming, predominant purging keyboard lines and swirling spectral vocals result in twisted dark wave pieces with a catchy approach carrying an overwhelming, coercive energy.”
“After the highly successful first album ‘Guilt Kollektion’ – sold out almost immediately – here comes the long awaited brand new album by the still young Swedish EBM institution, containing 11 tracks of amazing darknoise and EBM! ALVAR: pulsing, shadows, thrilling rhythms, furious loops and a feeling of total takeover of your soul.
ALVAR from Öland/Sweden, ‘discovered’ by Dirk Ivens (Klinik, Absolute Body Control, Sonar, Dive… & founder of Daft) 2 years ago, making music inspired by deserted places, forgotten houses and old legends. Alvar offer a clash between techno, old school industrial and EBM in a unique combination that makes this fresh new act extraordinary!”
