⊙ ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. ⊙
(Japan)

https://www.facebook.com/acidmotherstempleofficial
Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso Underground Freak Out (and subsequent offshoots) is a Japanese psychedelic space rock band, the core of which formed in 1995. The band is led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto and early in their career featured many musicians, but by 2004 the line-up had coalesced with only a few core members and frequent guest musicians.
The band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective.
“In a non-stop stream of thrilling noise, they segue from supercharged stomp-rock, through doomy choral chanting and frazzled go-go, to a thundering melee of atonal freakouts. Then on to a pulsating, echo-drenched disco-rock groove, which morphs into a motorik rhythm too rapid even for the autobahn, works itself into a squalling frenzy, breaks cover as a kind of galloping, syncopated, Underworld-with-rabies affair, and flows into a long, chiming trance number climaxing in a collective instrumental howl.” – David Bennun

⊙ SUNN TRIO ⊙
(Phoenix – Arizona)
https://sunntrio.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/sunntrio
Described as deep spirited, Arabic-music-tinged free jazz-punk and harsh exotica, Sunn Trio’s ever-evolving ensemble digests a number of genres, spitting them back out in creative destruction. Carrying on a long tradition of sun-beaten Phoenix punk, Sunn Trio evokes the sweltering and hallucinatory Arizona desert. Echoes of Sonny Sharrock, John McLaughlin, and Sir Richard Bishop can be heard in Joel Robinson’s fiery blurs of guitar. Imagine the Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 in full force, echoing from behind a curtain of bitter haze. Founded by Robinson in 2010, the ever-changing band has been constantly recording and releasing material, with a recent LP, Fayrus, on Germany’s Unrock Records.
“Wielding Indo-Arabian saz and white lightning six-string shrapnel amidst an alligator snapping turtle’s rhythm section, this trio-quartet-sextet may also sprout horns, flutes, animal skins, or shadow gamelan to faithfully demolish that whiny and predictable listening experience of today’s tepidly lazy, underachieving experimental music scene. Not a ‘safe’ environment.” – Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls
“There’s a woozy, heatstroke feel to the band’s innovative blend of surf rock, free jazz, mystical drone, and world music. Consistently recording and releasing material via self-distributed cassettes, the Trio’s sound mutates in concert, with fantastic flurries of distorted guitars butting up against mantric psychedelic saxophone runs and looping bass.” – Jason Patrick Woodbury

⊙ STEREOCILIA ⊙

Night Shift ft. Paradox Obscur + Open Drag Stage

𝔉𝔬𝔯𝔢𝔫𝔰𝔦𝔠𝔰 presents: Night Shift
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2018
00H00 – 06H00+
URBAN SPREE

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

The sun comes down and with it the day shift comes to an end. It is time for the night shift to take over.

Creatures of the night, replicants, angelic faces and spectators hungry for strangeness give themselves to the carefreeness of the 80s in a club turned for a night into a house of the underground.

On the program: Paradox Obscur LIVE, Drag Shows, New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave.

For its fifth edition, Night Shift comes back from a long summer break with a bang! We’re going back to our original format with one room but are tripling our stage performances.
The live stage will be taken over by very special international guests: emblematic Greek duo Paradox Obscur!

Paradox Obscur were formed in January 2014 by Toxic Razor & Kriistal Ann in order to step into a more minimal direction than their previous projects and haul a diverse universe consisting of dark hardware synthesizers under a cold drape of spiraling electronics.
Their live shows are characterized by the raw energy and extended passionate female vocals.

Listen to Dark Fortress:

On the drag stage, our hostess Ghōst will be joined by fresh faces of the Berlin drag scene. They will have the pleasure of sharing their art with you, some of them for the very first time, and offering you a show always darker but always more fun!

At the DJ booth, our resident DJs Al Niklaus and Inept Pernicious will be joined by Mr. Manic.
They will take you back to the sweet effervescence of the 80s with New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave beats.

Night Shift is a LGBT+, hetero-inclusive bimestrial event.

We pride ourselves on being a safe space for LGBTQIA+ individuals, their allies, and women: our team consists predominantly of female-identified and queer-identified folks.
All of our DJs and our drag performers are individuals who identify as being part of a counter-culture and our drag shows also fall under the umbrella of our music genres for a complete immersive experience.

Purple Hilll Witch + Church of Mental Enlightment

With their sophomore album Celestial Cemetary out on Church Within Records , Norwegian Purple Hill Witch hits a sweet spot in the metal triangle between Angel Witch, Black Sabbath and Hawkwind. It’s that alchemistic moment where psych, doom, NWOBH, proto metal and rock is molded and sculpted into a perfect entity. Whereas their debut album had more of a stoner rock vibe to it, the new album takes the listener on a sheer proto doom journey past vast galaxies of swirling, Iommic riffs, blistering soli, driving drums and a steady surge of pulsating bass. What really strikes through on Celestial Cemetary is how much atmosphere and true feeling the band manages to cramp into the furrows of their sonic landscape – this album oozes with hallucinogenic visions of occult rituals and barren medieval country sides haunted by wicked witches. As such it leaves an even darker, more sinister imprint, and if there ever was an immaculate soundtrack for when going witch hunting across celestial cemeteries this would have to be it.

Band descriptions:

➤ MONOMYTH | The Hague, NL

THE VOYAGE. Unleashed from The Netherlands in 2011, with instrumental music as aim and rooted in Space, Trance, Prog, Ambient and Krautrock with trips into Psych, Drone and Stoner, Monomyth is a travel agency, a vehicle and a destination all in one. A collective journey and statement of five like-minded identities from different creative and musical backgrounds, who search for, explore and expand the boundaries of their own musical universe – leaning heavily on a solid foundation of drums and bass guitar, while adding guitar, keyboards and textures layer upon layer. Furthermore moving beyond to another world – to a cosmic playground that feels both new and familiar – an arena where there is no more time or space. A vacuum caused by shifting patterns, repetitions and drones, you can enter in two ways: Simply by closing your eyes and letting the instrumental music transport you. Or with your eyes wide open as you descend into the mind staggering light show. Clear, transparent and trance-inducing.

The Monomyth theory, conceived by Joseph Campbell, incorporates a systematic representation of an adventure, the band translates into a musical form and concepts through the the trilogy of their current records: While three years ago on their self-titled debut calling to adventure and the first exploration of the possibilities, and later on their second record ‘Further’ implementing the main theme of movement, the break through to the great unknown and the fusion to a coherent whole, with their new and third album ‘Exo’ Monomyth completes its own epic trilogy and sets foot ashore with the chapter of discovery – mapping of a completely new territory, a musical Exoplanet, with a few interesting experiments, new elements and surprises the attentive listener will notice. No matter what, the technical possibilities are utilised to perfection – both in music and story.

This is music for “the mind, the body and the soul”. This is… Monomyth.

➤ VAYL | Berlin, DE

ECLIPSE THE SUN. Currently Berlin’s VAyL step more than ever into the scene. With straight, riffs, a deep groove and thundering drums, these three fresh youngsters create a sound with it’s very own character – servin’ you an acoustic armageddon, the slo-mo as well as the thrasher among us bangs his brain off to. The right sound to fuel this night’s spaceship for… take off!
