Forensics presents: MESSY with James Majesty (Dragula)

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.

James Chance and Les Contortions

James Chance & Les Contortions live in Berlin



A key figure in No Wave, James Chance has been playing a combination of improvisational jazz-like music and punk in the New York music scene since the late 1970s, in such bands as Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, James Chance and the Contortions, James White and the Blacks, The Flaming Demonics, James Chance & the Sardonic Symphonics, James Chance and Terminal City, and James Chance and Les Contortions. His music can be described as combining the freeform playing of Ornette Coleman with the solid funk rhythm of James Brown, though filtered through a punk rock lens.
Born and raised in Milwaukee and Brookfield, Wisconsin, Chance attended Michigan State University, then the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music in Milwaukee, dropped out and moved to New York City in 1976. He quickly became active in both the free jazz and no wave punk rock scenes.
His first band in New York in 1976 was an instrumental quartet with violin, drums and bass called Flaming Youth. After studying for a short time under David Murray, Chance formed The Contortions, who fused jazz improvisation and funk rhythms. The Contortions reached a wider audience with their contribution to the Brian Eno-compiled No New York collection of No Wave acts.
Known for violent and confronting live shows, razor tight musicians and jagged compositions, as well as a knack for jazz and bubblegum reinterpretation, James Chance has produced increasingly progressive and unnervingly agitated live shows. The Les Contortions have been his European tour group since 2006.

Support: Jimmy Trash and Big Daddy Mugglestone

Australian-Berliner Jimmy Trash (+ The Gunpowder Temple of Heaven, Jimmy Trash Orchestra, Trashfest, Analog Africa) and American-Berliner Big Daddy Mugglestone (+ His Cheap Paper Toys, The Mugglestone Review, Sacred Travelers, The Ass-Droids) have developed a project together out of a shared love of African, Arabic and Vodou rhythms, the use of sacred texts, performance art and creating unsure and chaotic spaces for a live audience.Working out a system to deliver fervent messages from ancient occult texts in a form of music that synchronizes the dirty synths of Suicide with mad live Vodou rhythms of West Africa, South America and the islands of Cabo Verde, and the vocal and performative stylings of Southern Baptist church services, we have dually terrified and pleasured audiences throughout Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Greece, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria and Turkey.

Sun Worship + Nadja + James Kelly

Thick drone forests pierced by grating guitar splinters are presented on the occasion of a gathering of international journalists and specialists of the global metal scene. A chance to meet up and enjoy black sonic intensities.

Whether in the frozen forests or in the sprawling urbanity of Neukölln, desolation will be desolation. Berlin outfit Sun Worship channels this bleakness into an icy spear of harsh beauty. The result is a kind of black metal without pretense or theatrics, a sonic landscape both stripped and dense.

With Nadja, Aidan Baker & Leah Buckareff make music that encompasses experimental/drone, ambient, shoegaze, and doom metal. The Canadian duo’s slowly moving musical dreamslugde and dirge-like drums has been released on labels such as Alien8, Important records, Denovali, as well as their own label, Broken Spine Productions.

James Kelly, frontman of Irish black metal band Altar of Plagues and the mind behind electronic music project, WIFE, will provide dark ambiances throughout the night.

As anyone who has been in attendance at one of their live shows thus far will testify – where the venues are decorated from floor to ceiling with glitter, doll parts, glamorous pictures and whatever else the six members of the band have dreamt up in the days before – HMLTD are a band of grand ambitions.

“Our plan has always been to connect on a much, much bigger scale than this,” says singer Henry. “We want to make big pop songs that get on the radio, in the papers, we want to be pop stars. And I don’t see why that is something that we should be embarrassed about.”

“That’s why we put so much into our videos, and our aesthetic. That’s why we signed to Sony, and not to an indie label. We have always thought of ourselves as a pop group, not an indie band.” adds guitarist James.

So, they connected with the famous Producer from Los Angeles, Justin Tranter (worked with Selena Gomez, Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears and Justin Bieber) for their new Album.
The first fruits of this new collaborative way of working will be ‘Pictures Of You’: a giant, titanic pop song with undeniable, super-infectious hooks that, rather than sounding like the work of Justin Tranter, still bears all the unmistakable hallmarks of an HMLTD creation. “And that is one of the more straight up songs,” says James. “The others are quite avant grade and strange, and totally unlike anything you’d hear on the radio at the moment, but still very pop, which is very exciting.”
“Basically,” Henry concludes, “we just want HMLTD to matter on a massive scale.”
