12.04 NОМ – The Kings of St.Petersburg – in Berlin

NOM first time in Berlin with full line-up including their original vocalist Alexander Liver.

Andrei Kagadeev: Bass guitar / vocal
Varvara Zverkova: Accordion / vocal
Alexei Zubkov: Electric guitar / vocal
Vadim Latyshev: Drums

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.

“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!”

Praha-Berlin Barter

In March/April 2019, Urban Spree Galerie invites Prague-based Trafo Gallery for a group show and gallery exchange.

“Praha-Berlin Barter” will take place from 28.03.2019 to 21.04.2019 and will display the works of 8 prominent Czech artists from the Trafo gallery.

Curated by Trafo Gallery Director Blanka Čermáková, the group show oscillates between contemporary urban arts (Jan Kaláb, Michal Škapa), pop surrealism (Jan Vytiska), contemporary drawing, sculpture, digital art, animation (Jakub Janovský, Michal Cimala, Jakub Nepraš), and geometric abstraction paintings (Robert Šalanda, Ira Svobodová). All artists have been involved in the old Trafacka space in Prague before its destruction and are actively involved into the new Trafo Gallery.

This group exhibition marks the first exchange between 2 independent European galleries sharing the same values and a similar history.

Trafacka was created in 2006 as a gallery and residential space located in an old power station in an industrial district of Prague.
After a couple of years, the place was occupied by more than 100 living and working artists in 36 studios, exhibiting in Trafo Gallery. More than 200 projects took place over the course of 8 years, until the place was finally destroyed in 2014. In 2016, the gallery managed to relocate in a former slaughterhouse (Vietnamese market of Prague, across the river from the historical center). Trafo Gallery was reborn with a 200 sqm gallery space and 4 artist studios. The artist-run gallery presents six exhibitions and six books per year with a focus on the new contemporary Czech art scene and the genres of street art, sculptures, abstraction painting, and digital art.

In the words of Blanka Čermáková, Director of Trafo Gallery: “One exhibition per year is a sort of barter with international projects and galleries which this year leads us to Berlin, city of art, angels and friends. Eight artists based in Prague, united with a long term bond to Trafo Gallery and our history, – Ira Svobodová, Jan Kaláb, Jakub Nepraš, Michal Cimala, Michal Škapa, Jan Vytiska, Robert Šalanda and Jakub Janovský – represent strong personalities and different art expressions. Ira Svobodová paints exact architectural compositions and builds perspective with colors and shadows, Jan Kaláb, a well known artist to Urban Spree with strong street art roots and perfect color and shapes styles, Jakub Nepraš shape sculptures as a platform for his vivid videocollages of microscopic worlds of nature and human babylons, Michal Cimala composes sculptures made often from collected material to existentialist compositions. Graffiti legend Michal Škapa works with urban scenery, apocalyptic and architecture destruction or using expressive colors when writing his crypted rune texts on canvases. Jan Vytiska is a painter of zombie romantic and surrealistic stories often based in forest neighbourhood or in postapocalyptic times. Robert Šalanda works with paper collages of abstract color shapes and transpose it to canvases where playfully upgrades new compositions with gradient colors. Last but not least Jakub Janovský is recognizable with his figurative drawings and often black and white coloring, silicon, enamel or airbrush outlines and ironic reflecting of society problems and characters.

All of these artists, whether picturing abstract motives, displaying the view of their world around or in their visions, are the subatomic particles bonding Trafo Gallery fluidum together. Without them, Trafo Gallery would never exist”.

In May 2019, Urban Spree’s artists will be hosted in Prague by Trafo Gallery.
