Last Days for the Grand Boucle Exhibition in London

post2_grandeOriginally created at Urban Spree Galerie in July 2012 by Christoph Reichert (chipsnchampagne) and Urban Spree’s resident screenprinter Dolly Demoratti (Mother Drucker), the Grand Boucle exhibition then travelled to Budapest in April 2013 in an enhanced format and finally hit the UK race tracks in May at Shoreditch’s Kemistry Gallery

Conceived as a critical and visual narrative of vintage and contemporary bike design, Grand Boucle displays a selection of new and vintage bicycles, bespoke saddles as well as  the ‘Grand Boucle’ magazine. Complimenting it is a silk screen printed testimonial to bicycle related design & photography, such as vintage head-badge posters & postcards as well as photographical large scale prints.

Grand Boucle is on until June 1st, 2013.



Thumper – Berlin, Urban Spree

Support: Zörf

THUMPER come from Dublin and make fast-paced noise pop. The very young sextet started the year 2019 with a series of three singles “(You’re Bringing Me) Down”, “In My Room” and “AFL”, which were played up and down on British rock radio. This was followed in May by their first EP “Out of Body Auto-Message”, a festival tour that culminated in an ecstatic performance at the Primavera in Barcelona, and an acclaimed UK tour with sold-out shows in London, Bristol and of course their hometown Dublin. Now the band are working very hard on their debut record, which they plan to present on their tour in spring 2020. read more >> fkpscorpio.com/en/bands-archive/thumper

Elephant Stone – Europe Winter 2020 | Berlin

Elephant Stone
1 February 2020
Berlin, Urban Spree

>> Tickets: bit.ly/ElephantStoneBLN

Admission: 20 h / Start: 21 h
_______________________________________________________

Elephant Stone announce their new album and go on UK/European tour in winter 2020
“Hollow” will be released February 14th on the London label Fuzz Club

Elephant Stone, that’s the highly respected sitar player Rishi Dhir, his long-time fellow musicians Miles Dupire (drums) & Robbie MacArthur (guitar) as well as guest musician Jason Kent (keys/guitar). The sixth album of the Psych-Pop-Creation, founded in 2009, will be released on February 14th.

Regarding the album and the new single “Hollow World”, Rishi says: “I’m sure I’m not alone with this feeling. If social media has taught us anything, it is that there are many unhappy people out there trying to find a way out. They are looking for meaning and something to believe in… or nothing to believe in. We all want the same thing, but we try to achieve it in different ways. It was with this in mind that we wrote and recorded our sixth album, Hollow. I wrote a song suite that tells of a world of unhappy souls who have lost touch with one another.”

The result is an ambitious, dystopian sci-fi concept album inspired by “The Who’s” ‘Tommy’, Pretty Things’ ‘S.F, Sorrow’ and the second side of the famous “The Beatles” ‘Abbey Road’.

In winter 2020 the band from Canada will go on a big UK & Europe tour, with many dates in hip cities – including Paris, Berlin and London.

Shopping – Urban Spree, Berlin

New album All Or Nothing out on 7th February 2020

The DIY ‘supergroup’ Shopping formed in 2012, respected players on a young, queer, East London scene that counted basement venue Power Lunches (RIP) as its hub. Their sound – kinetic, minimalist dance-punk inspired by the likes of ESG, Gang of Four, Slits and Au Pairs – has won them glowing press from all quarters (NME, Pitchfork, NPR), impressive co-signs (Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker is a fan) and a loyal, cross-continent following accrued over three, acclaimed albums: self-released debut Consumer Complaints [2013], a short-run, DIY-distributed release that sold out in a matter of months and was subsequently reissued by FatCat; Why Choose [2015, FatCat], which saw the band touring the States for the first time; and The Official Body [2018, FatCat] – produced by indie pop legend Edwyn Collins.

Along with cleaner, new production values, their brand new album “All Or Nothing” (out on February 7th, 2020 on FatCat) sees Shopping experiment further with the sonic additions that coloured The Official Body. Jubilantly ‘80s synths and electronic percussion add new textures to their signature minimalist dynamic, flourishes that show up on the accelerating zooms of ‘Follow Me’ and the frenetic, propulsive robotics of ‘For Your Pleasure’. “We introduced both of these sounds on the last album and just decided to be more liberal with them this time,” explains Easter. Aggs – feted for her dexterous, Highlife-inspired fret work – went so far as to down guitars for a number of tracks (‘For Your Pleasure’, ‘Follow Me’, ‘Lies’). “It’s been so fun developing quite a specific guitar style within Shopping, but I think we were all getting a little sick of it to be honest! It felt very stale to just have every song be the same formula so I’m glad we did away with the guitar for a few songs.”
