Anderer Name, gleiche Energie. Das Spanish Bombs Festival (bis 2017 bekannt als die Spanish Rock Invasion) kehrt zum neunten Mal zurück mit vielen spannenden Neuheiten. Wie jeder weiß, verhält es sich mit der Energie so, dass sie weder geschaffen, noch zerstört, sondern nur transformiert werden kann. Außer der Namensänderung, wechselt das Festival in diesem Jahr auch den Ort. Da unser geliebter Bassy Club leider nicht mehr existiert, findet das Festival nun im Urban Spree (www.urbanspree.com) statt. Des Weiteren erleben wir alle Konzerte geballt an einem Abend. Am Freitag, den 9. November werden uns fünf spanische Bands durch die Bandbreite des Pop, Rock, und der elektronischen Musik “made in Spain” führen.
Das Festival wird beginnen mit Mobe, einer Band, die akustisch spielt und mit elektronischen Bässen unterlegt ist. Ihre Songs haben eine hypnotische, intensive, sinnliche und schwungvolle Energie. Danach werden uns die Lieder von Nine Stories verzaubern: reiche Melodien voller kleiner Entdeckungen, die wirken wie Dream Pop, Gitarrenrock oder Psychedelic Electro.
An dritter Stelle, werden wir die Band Anntona hören, ein Soloprojekt, gegründet vom Gitarristen Manuel Sánchez von Los Punsets, einer der ausgefallensten und beliebtesten Indie-Bands Spaniens. Los Punsets sind 2016 bereits mit großem Erfolg im Rahmen des Festivals aufgetreten und 2018 wird Anntona an ihrer Stelle zurückkehren. Sie spielen Pop mit humorvollen Texten, eine Musik, die jeden mit sich reißt und nicht davor zurückschreckt, melodische Lieder mit Bossa Nova und synthetischen Rhythmen zu vermischen.
Später am Abend kommt Alondra Bentley an die Reihe, eine Künstlerin, die englische Wurzeln mütterlicherseits und spanische väterlicherseits hat. Ihre Musik setzt sich über jegliche musikalische Gattung hinweg und reicht von Pop, über Folk bis hin zu Elektro. Mit ihren fünf Platten, die sie u. a. mit Musikern und Produzenten wie Matthew E. White und Josh Rouse ist realisierte, ist sie zu einer der bedeutendsten Musikerinnen der spanischen Indie-Musik geworden.
Zum krönenden Abschluss des Spanish Bombs Festivals, werden wir Papaya live auf der Bühne erleben, mit der Kanarierin chilenischen Ursprungs und Bandleaderin Yanara Espinoza. Sie fesselt ihr Publikum mit ihrer eleganten und sinnlichen Art. Ihre Songs sind eine Mischung aus lateinamerikanischem Pop der 80er, New Wave, Beats aus den Sixties, Dance, Cumbia, Son, Country, Rock’n’Roll und orchestralen Arrangements des Yéyé-Sounds.
Nach dem Erfolg der acht vorangegangenen Auflagen des Festivals, kehrt das Spanish Bombs Festival wieder und präsentiert eine erfrischende Zusammenstellung von Bands, die sowohl das deutsche Publikum, wie auch die zahlreichen spanischen Berliner begeistern wird. Das Festival bleibt eine Bühne für die spanische Indie-Szene, die mit viel Leichtigkeit, guter Laune und ohne Kommerz versucht, die Klischees unserer Kultur zu brechen.
Schon in den vergangenen acht Jahren, von 2010 bis 2017, brachte das Spanish Bombs Festival einige der interessantesten spanischen Indie-Bands nach Berlin: Sidonie, Christina Rosenvinge, Los Punsetes, Guadalupe Plata, Los Coronas, Triángulo de Amor Bizarro, Arizona Baby, Vinila von Bismark & The Lucky Dados, Juanita y Los Feos, Los Chicos, Sex Museum, Los Mambo Jambo, Lidia Damunt, Aries, El Último Vecino, Capsula, Pablo und Destruktion, Bala, Los Tiki Phantoms, Mujeres, Doctor Explosión, The Imperial Surfers, Dolores o Pumuky, u. v. a. m. Nicht umsonst wurde das Festival 2012 als eines der besten nationalen Veranstalter für den Preis “Premios de la Música Independiente” nominiert.

Papaya

www.facebook.com/Papaya-368047959987182
Erst vor kurzem hat die Band ihr zweites Album “Corazón abierto” (2018) veröffentlicht, mit dem sie nun ihre derzeitige Besetzung etabliert haben. Bandleaderin ist die Kanarierin chilenischer Herkunft Yanara Espinoza mit ihren drei Mitspielern: Miguel Aguas, Andrés Morillo und Sebastián Litmanovich (Bandleader der fantastischen Gruppe Cineplexx). Der Erfolg ihres Debut-Albums ließ schon damals erahnen, welches Potential in ihnen steckt. “No me quiero enamorar” (2015) erhielt den Preis der Zeitschrift “El Ojo Crítico” (verliehen durch den spanischen Radiosender RNE) und den “Pop Eye-Preis” 2016. Von 2016 bis 2017 tourte das madrilenische Quartett in ganz Spanien, auch auf den Makrofestivals FIB, BBK, WOMAD, Contempopránea, Sonorama Ribera, Santander Music Festival und Tomavistas. Schon beim ersten Hören von Songs wie “No me quiero enamorar”, dem Album “¡Ay, mujer!” (2017) oder ihrer neuen Platte “Corazón abierto” ist man hingerissen von Yanara Espinozas einzigartiger Persönlichkeit. Sie fesselt ihr Publikum mit ihrer eleganten und sinnlichen Art. Ihre Songs sind eine Mischung aus lateinamerikanischem Pop der 80er, New Wave, Beats aus den Sixties, Dance, Cumbia, Son, Country, Rock’n’Roll und orchestralen Arrangements des Yéyé-Sounds. Zum Spanish Bombs Festival wird Papaya in diesem Jahr erstmals in Deutschland auftreten. Das sollte man sich nicht entgehen lassen!

“I was born with the gift of a golden voice”, sang Leonard Cohen in “Tower Of Song”. Er bezog sich auf ironische Art und Weise auf sich selbst, doch hätte er genau so gut von Alondra Bentley sprechen können, wäre diese zu jenem Zeitpunkt nicht noch ein Kind gewesen. Aber man kann es nicht abstreiten, dass Alondra mit dieser Gabe geboren wurde, denn sie hat in der Tat eine göttliche Stimme. Davon kann man sich nicht nur auf den fünf Alben, die sie bisher veröffentlicht hat überzeugen, sondern auch auf jedem einzelnen ihrer Konzerte und vor allem auf ihrem neuesten Album “Solar System” (2018), das ein neues Kapitel in ihrer Karriere eröffnet. Als Tochter einer englischen Mutter und eines spanischen Vaters, wurde sie Anfang der 80er in Lancaster (Großbritannien) geboren. Ihre Musik setzt sich über jegliche musikalische Gattungen hinweg und reicht von Pop, über Folk bis hin zu Elektro. Mit ihrem Debut “Ashfield Avenue” (2009) wurde sie zu einer Entdeckung der spanischen Indie-Musikszene und ging damit auf Welttournee, die sie von Spanien, England und Frankreich, über Mexiko und den USA, bis nach China verschlug. Drei Jahre später folgten weitere Alben. Zunächst “Alondra Bentley Sings For Children” (2012), eine Liedersammlung für Kinder von 0 bis 100 Jahren, wie sie es gern beschreibt. Ihre nächste Platte “The Garden Room” (2012), produziert von Josh Rouse, ist ein organisches, vielseitiges Werk mit sanften Klängen. Das vierte Album entstand in Zusammenarbeit mit Matthew E. White, in dem sie mit neuen Sounds experimentierten. Aufgenommen wurde es in den Spacebomb-Studios in Richmont (Virginia), zusammen mit ihrer Stammbesetzung (die in der Regel mit Natalie Press und Ryan Adams zusammenarbeiten). Was dabei herausgekommen ist, hört man auf der Platte “Resolutions” (2016), mit der sie etwas wirklich Neues entwickelt hat, indem sie impressionistische Streicher-Arrangements mit Synthesizern und Vocal-Loops zusammen bringt. Doch ihr jüngstes Album “Solar System” stellt alles auf den Kopf, was Alondra in ihrer bisherigen Karriere geschaffen hat. Nun schreibt sie Lieder, die eher in die Richtung Elektronische Musik gehen, zunehmend euphorischer sind, fast schon experimentell und dennoch durchaus tanzbar. Diese Melodien gehen ins Ohr und sind geschmückt mit Synthesizern und Shoegazing-Gitarren. Ihr erster Auftritt in Deutschland verspricht, in Erinnerung zu bleiben.

Anntona

Manuel Sánchez ist der Gitarrist von Los Punsets, eine der originellsten und angesehensten Bands der spanischen Indie-Szene, die bei ihrem Auftritt auf dem Festival 2016 schon einmal das Berliner Publikum begeistern konnten. Mittlerweile hat Manuel mit seinem Soloprojekt Anntona zwei Platten und eine Auswahl an Demoaufnahmen herausgebracht, wie “Anntona es buena persona” (2007), “En la cama con Anntona” (2009) und “Grandes males, remedios regulares” (2011), für die er sowohl außergewöhnlich gute Kritik, als auch furchtbar schlechte bekommen hat. Nachdem er einige Jahre kaum etwas von sich hören lassen hat, brachte er 2017 sein viertes Album “Internacional” heraus, das er erstmals in Zusammenarbeit mit einem Produzenten (Sebastian Litmanovich, von Cineplexx und Papaya) aufnahm, was das Projekt einen enormen Schritt vorangebracht hat. Auf dieser Platte füttert er seine wilde Popmusik mit Bossa Nova (“Mi pequeño pene y yo”) und synthetischen Rhythmen (“Mi patria en mis gayumbos”). Doch das beste an allem sind seine super lustigen Texte, die sich einem Humor bedienen, der irgendwo zwischen Dreistigkeit und Surrealismus liegt (“Ich habe mehr Jahre auf dem Buckel als ich verdiene und wenig Lust, den Rest noch abzusitzen”, sagt er in “A ver qué pasa”; “Ich bereue es, auf den Rasen deines Herzens gepisst zu haben”, singt er bei “Plástico”). In seinem Album “Internacional” spricht er von vielen Dingen, doch im Grunde weitestgehend von sich selbst. Ob ein Mangel an Selbstwertschätzung der Weg ist, seinem inneren Frieden zu finden? Lasst es uns herausfinden, bei seinem nächsten Besuch in Berlin.

Nine Stories

Erfolg kommt nicht von ungefähr. Eine lange Karriere erarbeitet man sich in kleinen, konsequenten Schritten, zielgerichtet und ohne das Zulassen nostalgischer Gedanken. Die Karriere von Nine Stories, mit dem Madrilenen Nacho Ruiz als Bandleader, erfüllt genau diese Parameter. Jede einzelne ihrer Platten war ein Sprung nach vorn, was sich vor allem bei “Cinéma Vérite” (2017) bemerkbar macht, dem dritten Album der Band. Schon “Nine Stories” (2010) und “Trafalgar” (2013) wurden vom Publikum begeistert aufgenommen und von Kritikern hoch gelobt. Würde man die ersten beiden Platten als die zwei ersten Kapitel einer Erzählung beschreiben, wäre “Cinéma Vérité” definitiv der Kerngedanke der Geschichte. Dieses Album bietet eine breite Palette neuer Klänge. Streicher- und Bläser-Arrangements unterlegen sie mit Trommel-Synthesizern und Samples ihrer eigenen bekannten Melodien. Ihre Musik sehr facettenreich und steckt voller unerwarteter Überraschungen, in dem unterschiedliche Stile, wie Dream Pop, Gitarrenrock und Psychedelic Electro miteinander vereint werden. Nachdem sie 2017 mit über 20 Konzerten auf Tour in China waren, verschlägt es sie in diesem Jahr nach Deutschland. Ihr einziges Konzert in Berlin werden sie im Rahmen des Spanish Bombs Festivals geben.

Mobe

www.facebook.com/mobeonline
Mobe wurde 2003 in Madrid gegründet, nachdem sich José Luis (Bass, elektronische Sounds und Gesang) und Nacho (Schlagzeug) zusammengeschlossen haben, um sich von Bands wie Usura und Venas Plutón unabhängig zu machen und ein neues Projekt zu starten. Sie spielen analog und verstärken ihren Band-Sound mit digitalen Bässen. Dadurch haben ihre Songs eine hypnotische, intensive und sinnliche Wirkung und einen treibenden Drive. Im Jahr 2009 schlossen sich ehemalige Mitglieder von Venas Plutón, Orlando und Germain Union der Band an und sie spielten auf den gleichen Bühnen wie Standstill, Aviador Deo, Ginfero, Humbert Humbert und Peluze. Außerdem gewannen sie 2005 den Wettbewerb Fortuna Sounds und zählten zu den Finalisten zahlreicher anderer Wettbewerbe, wie Proyecto Demo, Festival Contempopránea, Villa de Bilbao, Emergenza und Contraindicaciones.

Entradas anticipadas en Wowsville.

Diferente nombre, mismo espíritu. Spanish Bombs Festival (hasta 2017 conocido como Spanish Rock Invasion) llega a su novena edición cargado de novedades. Ya se sabe, la energía no se crea ni se destruye, sólo se transforma. Además del cambio de nombre, este año el festival varía su ubicación, pasando del desaparecido y añorado Bassy Club a la sala Urban Spree (www.urbanspree.com). Además, en esta edición todos los conciertos de los cinco grupos venidos desde España se concentran en una única jornada, el viernes 9 de noviembre, para mostrar en una sola noche toda la variedad del pop, el rock y la electrónica “made in Spain”.
El festival arrancará con Mobe, un grupo de estructura acústica soportada por bases electrónicas que consigue crear canciones llenas de hipnotismo, intensidad, sensualidad, energía y swing. A continuación llegarán las canciones de Nine Stories: melodías plagadas de detalles y pequeños hallazgos, en las que caben pop onírico, rock de guitarras o electrónica psicodélica.
El tercero en salir al escenario será Anntona, el nombre del proyecto en solitario de Manuel Sánchez, guitarrista de Los Punsetes, uno de los grupos más originales y respetados de la escena indie española. Los Punsetes ya actuaron en 2016 en el festival con gran éxito de público y en 2018 Anntona regresa con sus hilarantes letras y su pop omnívoro que se arrima sin prejuicios a la canción melódica, la bossa nova o los ritmos sintéticos.
Más tarde llegará el turno de Alondra Bentley. De madre inglesa y padre español, Alondra escribe canciones que trascienden géneros, ya sea pop, folk, rock o electrónica. Gracias a sus cinco discos (en los que ha trabajado con músicos y productores como Matthew E. White y Josh Rouse) se ha convertido en uno de los nombres imprescindibles de la música independiente española.
Spanish Bombs Festival terminará a lo grande con el show de Papaya, el proyecto encabezado por la canaria de ascendencia chilena Yanara Espinoza. Un torbellino escénico elegante y sensual que tiene como referentes el pop latinoamericano de los años 80, la new wave, el beat sixties, el dance, la cumbia, el son, el country, el rock’n’roll o los arreglos orquestales del sonido ye-yé.
Tras el éxito de sus ocho ediciones anteriores, Spanish Bombs Festival vuelve con un sugerente cartel, apto tanto para el público alemán como para los numerosos residentes españoles en Berlín. El festival continúa apostando por la escena independiente española de una manera divertida, evitando los estilos más comerciales y con la intención de romper los tópicos asociados a nuestra cultura.
Spanish Bombs Festival ya presentó en sus ocho anteriores ediciones (de 2010 a 2017) algunas de las bandas más interesantes que está produciendo la escena independiente española, con las actuaciones de Sidonie, Christina Rosenvinge, Los Punsetes, Guadalupe Plata, Los Coronas, Triángulo de Amor Bizarro, Arizona Baby, Vinila von Bismark & The Lucky Dados, Juanita y Los Feos, Los Chicos, Sex Museum, Los Mambo Jambo, Lidia Damunt, Aries, El Último Vecino, Capsula, Pablo und Destruktion, Bala, Los Tiki Phantoms, Mujeres, Doctor Explosión, The Imperial Surfers, Dolores o Pumuky, entre otros muchos. Una labor que llevó al festival a ser nominando en 2012 como uno de los mejores promotores nacionales en los Premios de la Música Independiente.

Papaya

Papaya acaban de publicar “Corazón abierto” (2018), su segundo álbum y la confirmación del proyecto encabezado por la canaria de ascendencia chilena Yanara Espinoza junto a sus tres compañeros de aventuras: Miguel Aguas, Andrés Morillo y Sebastián Litmanovich (líder de los fantásticos Cineplexx). “Corazón abierto” es la confirmación del potencial de Papaya que ya se intuía en su debut, “No me quiero enamorar” (2015), un elepé que fue reconocido con premios como El Ojo Crítico (entregado por RNE, la radio pública española) y Pop Eye. Durante 2016 y 2017, el cuarteto madrileño actuó en salas de toda España, además de conquistar macrofestivales como FIB, BBK, WOMAD, Contempopránea, Sonorama Ribera, Santander Music Festival o Tomavistas. Lo que nadie puede imaginar al escuchar por primera vez “No me quiero enamorar”, el EP “¡Ay, mujer!” (2017) o el reciente “Corazón abierto” es la personalidad arrolladora de Yanara Espinoza. Un torbellino escénico elegante y sensual que tiene como referentes el pop latinoamericano de los años 80, la new wave, el beat sixties, el dance, la cumbia, el son, el country, el rock’n’roll o los arreglos orquestales del sonido ye-yé. Esta es su primera actuación en Alemania: será una fecha para recordar.

“Nací con el don de una voz divina”, cantaba Leonard Cohen en “Tower Of Song”. Se refería a sí mismo en tono jocoso, pero podría estar describiendo a Alondra Bentley, si no fuera porque ella tan sólo era una niña por aquel entonces. Pero lo cierto es que Alondra nació con un don: el de una voz divina. Se puede comprobar en los cinco discos que ha publicado, en cualquiera de sus conciertos y, por supuesto, en “Solar System” (2018), el álbum que abre un nuevo capítulo en su carrera. De madre inglesa y padre español, nacida a principios de los años 80 en Lancaster (Reino Unido), Alondra escribe canciones que trascienden géneros, ya sea pop, folk, rock o electrónica. Con “Ashfield Avenue” (2009), su debut, Alondra se convirtió en una de las revelaciones de la música independiente española y de inmediato se embarcó en una larga gira que la llevó por España, Reino Unido, México, Estados Unidos, Francia y China. Tres años después, llegaron dos elepés seguidos. El primero, “Alondra Bentley Sings For Children, It’s Holidays” (2012) es una colección de canciones pensadas para niños (“niños de 0 a 100 años”, le gusta explicar a Alondra). El siguiente, “The Garden Room” (2012), presentaba un sonido elegante, rico y orgánico, cortesía del productor Josh Rouse. Con ganas de probar nuevas sonoridades, Alondra y el músico Matthew E. White decidieron colaborar juntos. White no sólo produciría su cuarto álbum, sino que se grabaría en el estudio de Spacebomb, el colectivo que dirige en Richmond (Virginia) y contaría con sus músicos habituales (que también suelen acompañar a Natalie Prass y Ryan Adams). El resultado es “Resolutions” (2016), una evolución y una ruptura, con arreglos de cuerda impresionistas, sintetizadores y loops vocales. Pero el reciente “Solar System” da una vuelta de tuerca a todo lo que ha hecho hasta ahora la angloespañola, con canciones que se acercan a la electrónica, al pop más eufórico, a la experimentación y hasta al baile, con melodías infecciosas adornadas con sintetizadores y guitarras de inspiración shoegaze. Su debut en la capital alemana promete ser memorable.

Anntona

Manuel Sánchez toca la guitarra en Los Punsetes, uno de los grupos más originales y respetados de la escena indie española, que ya actuó en 2016 en el festival con gran éxito de público. Como Anntona ha publicado dos discos y una recopilación de maquetas -“Anntona es buena persona” (2007), “En la cama con Anntona” (2009) y “Grandes males, remedios regulares” (2011)-, con los que se ha granjeado fantásticas críticas y también unos cuantos insultos. Después de varios años sin apenas actividad, la publicación de su cuarto álbum, “Internacional” (2017), supone su primera colaboración con un productor (Sebastián Litmanovich, de Cineplexx y Papaya) y todo un paso adelante para su proyecto en solitario. Aquí su pop omnívoro se arrima sin prejuicios a la canción melódica, la bossa nova (“Mi pequeño pene y yo”) o los ritmos sintéticos (“Mi patria en mis gayumbos”). Lo mejor son sus hilarantes letras plagadas de un humor entre lo descreído (“Tengo más años de los que merezco y muy pocas ganas de cumplir el resto”, afirma en “A ver qué pasa”) y lo surrealista (“Lamento haberme meado en el césped de tu corazón”, canta en “Plástico”). “Internacional” habla de muchas cosas, pero todas son pretextos para que Anntona se enfrente a sí mismo y se ponga en su sitio. ¿Faltarse al respeto a uno mismo es una manera de buscar la paz interior? Podremos descubrirlo en su primera visita a Berlín.

Las carreras largas se construyen paso a paso, siempre con coherencia, sin atisbo de nostalgia y mirando hacia adelante. La de Nine Stories cumple estos parámetros. Cada disco ha sido un paso adelante, hecho que se certifica en “Cinéma Vérité” (2017), el tercer álbum de la formación liderada por el madrileño Nacho Ruiz. Si “Nine Stories” (2010) y “Trafalgar” (2013) fueron los dos primeros capítulos aclamados por crítica y público, “Cinéma Vérité” es el nudo central definitivo. El elepé presenta una perspectiva más contemporánea, añadiendo sintetizadores, arreglos de cuerda y viento, cajas de ritmos y samples a sus conocidas melodías plagadas de detalles y pequeños hallazgos. Una pequeña joya en la que caben pop onírico, rock de guitarras o electrónica psicodélica. Si en 2017 Nine Stories se embarcó en una gira por China con más de 20 conciertos, este año le toca debutar en Alemania, con una única fecha en Berlín.

Mobe nace en Madrid en 2003 cuando José Luis (bajo, bases electrónicas y voces) y Nacho (batería) vuelven a reunirse para formar un nuevo proyecto, dejando atrás su experiencia en bandas como Usura o Venas Plutón. Un nuevo grupo de estructura acústica soportada por bases electrónicas que consigue crear canciones llenas de hipnotismo, intensidad, sensualidad, energía y swing. En 2009, Mobe se convierte en un proyecto abierto, al que se han unido antiguos miembros de Venas Plutón, Orlando o Mermaid Union. Mobe ha compartido escenario con bandas de la categoría de Standstill, Aviador Dro, Ginferno, Humbert Humbert o Peluze. Además, en 2005 ganó el concurso Fortuna Sounds y ha sido finalista de otros prestigiosos concursos como Proyecto Demo, Festival Contempopránea, Villa de Bilbao, Emergenza o Contraindicaciones.



Big Ups

On May 18th, 2018, Brooklyn’s Big Ups return with their third full-length via Exploding in Sound Records. After forming eight years ago, the band comprised of Brendan Finn (drums), Joe Galarraga (vocals), Amar Lal (guitar), and Carlos Salguero Jr. (bass) continue to tackle dualities in the aptly named Two Parts Together. If 2014’s Eighteen Hours of Static was a brash screed about faith versus science, and 2016’s Before A Million Universes an introspective look at the individual against society, then Two Parts Together lies in the liminal, attempting to make sense of unknowable and basking in uncertainty.

The album’s title track finds vocalist Galarraga searching for meaning in ritual through the examples of a wedding and a funeral. “I just wanted to feel/just how it would be,” he states, hoping for some sort of self-discovery through these human institutions. This emotional inquisition is echoed throughout the album, often in opposition to the omnipresent “lake” mentioned in several songs. What rests below its surface, or bubbles up from the bottom? Throughout Two Parts Together, Big Ups wrestles with the power of mystery both tangibly and metaphysically.

And the band does so often through its signature dynamics. Lal’s biting guitar work is bolstered by Finn’s crashing and Salguero’s booming, and together they can tightly settle into a lull. But Big Ups is not simply employing its old tricks; Two Parts Together sees the quartet utilizing the studio more than ever. Their normal sonic palette has been supplemented with additional strings, harmonium, field recordings, piano, and more. The album is paced through thoughtful instrumentals and interludes, as if to offer the listener a breath of fresh air or – perhaps – a walk around the lake.

UUUU
(uk/swe – new band with members of COIL, DOME, WIRE, TOMAGA)
!!! GERMAN PREMIERE SHOW !!!
UUUU is a new outfit featuring Edvard Graham Lewis, Thighpaulsandra, Matthew Simms and Valentina Magaletti.
Individually these humans have implanted feathers in caps such as Coil, Dome, Wire, Tomaga, etc. Collectively they form UUUU, a powerhouse construction of fierce and free sonic exploration, as liberating as it is frightening, resulting in, the richly rewarding. The artists united present a project of exquisite curiosity and confident chaos where the individual thumbprints mesh into a gloriously muscular frenetic free sonic soup. It’s Going All Over The Floor presents itself as a terse meeting between dance, ambient, abstraction and improvisation. The Latent Black Path Of Summons Served proceeds in a tense energy field where random elements bounce around until locking into a fourth world pattern designed to fall into a dense mass of ecstatic noise. Boots with Wings is classic Lewis – a pop tune from the other side of the mind.
UUUU is a schizophrenic seething/soothing masterpiece of a past/present hybrid equally at home in the club, the home and the mind.
https://uuuuemego.bandcamp.com/

TRANSITIONAL
(uk – members of NOVATRON, RAMLEH, HEAD OF DAVID, JESU, GREYMACHINE , GOD, TERMINAL CHEESCAKE)
!!! FIRST AND ONLY GERMANY SHOW !!!
Transitional is a project from United Kingdom of musician producer Kevin Laska (Novatron) and long time Justin Broadrick and Kevin Martin collaborator Dave Cochrane who also appears on Greymachine.
This is a band which can deliver both sonic tranquility and extremely heavy slabs of dense music and just about everything in between; Heavy electronic machinery, juggernaut bass lines and hypnotic guitars go from passive relaxation to an unstoppable machine within a single surge.
Kevin Laska’s woven creations of bleak electronic / organic mesmerizing mayhem and bliss has found a new level. Now joined by legendary bassist Dave Cochrane who played with the likes of Kevin Martin in God, Ice and The Bug and Justin Broadrick in Jesu and Head of David.
Born in September 2006 Laska’s found himself in another quality up with Cochrane, following his last collaboration with a.o. Russel Smith and Anthony Difranco (Ramleh, ex Skullflower) as Novatron. Transitional; a solid, textured and dynamic sonic journey through a world that is both self deprecating and enlightening, but either way leaves you wanting more.
In 2009 they added Phil Petrocelli on Transitional’ drums and published their second full length studio album Stomach of the Sun.
From devouring linear drones, lush melancholy to pure unadulterated rage experienced through a back drop of churning rhythms, using Cohesive experimental recording techniques combined with discordant world eating riffs enveloped in a signature approach to atmosphere and interspersing melody.
This performance will mainly consist of material from the bands first two albums “Nothing Real, Nothing Absent” & the unsung “Stomach of the Sun”. A rare opportunity to see a performance from stalwarts of the underground UK Industrial scene.

BILLY BAO
(sp – members of LA SECTA, YOGUR, ATOM-RHUMBA, GUTARIKO BAT)
!!! FIRST GERMANY SHOW !!!
“When I came from Lagos (Nigeria) to San Francisco (Bilbao)
life was tough here or there. I did not mind, I had a purpose in my life: to fight the system that screws everyday of our life. Back in my hometown, I was an unknown songwriter but, as soon as I arrived to the streets of Bilbao, I discovered Punk Rock. It had energy and attitude and was exactly what I needed.
Next thing was to get a band. I found out the most primitive drummer in Bilbao, Alberto Lopez (ex-La Secta, ex-Yogur, ex-Atom-Rhumba), and the noisiest guitarrists around, Mattin & Xabier Erkizia (ex- Gutariko Bat). The band was formed under my name, it could not have been any other way.
These songs go beyond what rock and roll is and what it could be, in fact they are the degenereation of Rock&Roll against the regeneration of Bilbao.” – Billy Bao, Bilbao Dec 2004

CARLTON MELTON
(usa – members of ZEN GUERILLA)
Mendocino County in Northern California is known for its spectacular coastline views, immense redwood trees in ancient forests and abundant nature that remains largely undisturbed by man. It is perhaps the most logical home base for a band like Carlton Melton, who compose and record their music in a geodesic dome (a.k.a. The Dome). It is the perfect setting for a band creating meditative soundtracks freed from the constraints of traditional song composition.
While Carlton Melton’s sound is heavily inspired by psychedelic music, it is equal parts, blues, rock, improvisation and drone. Whether the band is hanging on a well-defined riff reminiscent of Led Zeppelin or Joe Walsh or largely abandoning conventional music structure à la Spacemen 3 and Bardo Pond, Carlton Melton uses layers, textures and repetition to create music that makes full use of the spaces in between notes and chord changes … sonic explorations if you will.
The music that Carlton Melton makes is bold and does not hesitate to “go there” just to see what the heck might be still left out there in the world of unexplored improvisational and psychedelic music. And there is a lot of ground left to explore and cover. Whether it’s in The Dome or in the live setting, Carlton Melton give themselves full permission to realize and create spontaneous sounds and create genuine musical gestures that resonate beautifully with audiences throughout the world. How many bands can claim that?

NERVØS!
(nor)
!!! FIRST AND ONLY GERMANY SHOW !!!
NERVØS! founded in Stjørdal, North Trøndelag, Norway ca 2000/2001 – performing «lydrock» as they call it (or «lautrock» if you wanna be all international about it).
Aiming for a trance state by repetition, blind/stupid rage, and a relation to sound as an overwhelming physical presence.
Each track they relentlessly beat down maximum 1-2 insanely heavy riffs, with filthy as hell distortion, pissed beyond belief vocals and caveman beats from the land before time. Matched with their huge wall of sound, harsh background noise and shifting guitars and drums they will make you crawl on all fours until you forget your mother tongue.

JAMES WELBURN
(nor)
James Welburn’s debut album ‘Hold’, published by Miasmah, was described as “Like watching a massive twisting fire slowly fading into the open skies, accompanied by a drum section so repetitive yet mind bending that you’re unsure if it’s ever going to stop”
Hailing from the UK, but located in both Berlin (DE) and Lillehammer (NO), James has been on a path to catch the perfect drone through the last years, playing an abundance of underground drone and noise sets in Berlin and Norway.
His biography already boasts notable collaborations, such as the one with the legendary drummer Tony Buck of The Necks or those with Tomas Järmyr (of Zu & Motorpsycho), Aidan Baker (of Nadja), Svarte Greiner (aka Erik K Skodvin), Andrea Belfi and the pioneering 60’s New York drone composer Phill Niblock.
Today Welburn performs a live set on the boundary between noise rock and electronica, modifying dirty electric bass sounds with abstract software effects into dark engulfing soundscapes and searing bass drones that breathe with a mysterious forceful energy. A relentless rhythm section drives the music forward, forming epic compositions of sound and noise.
“… Full of sounds and structures to get lost in, to bathe in the layers and wade through the textures that Welburn constructs with consummate skill…marks him out as a solo artist and collaborationist to watch” – The Quietus

FANGE
(fra – members of HUATA, BRAIN PYRAMID)
!!! FIRST BERLIN SHOW !!!
Formed in late 2013 by Baptiste from Brain Pyramid and Benjamin from Huata, FANGE (meaning “mire” in french) is a simple project. Making harsh riffs and hard beats, playing them loud, with a huge amount of distorted sounds and feedbacks.
All you’ll find here is a huge amount of fuzz and distortion, out of hand feedbacks, low tuning and big amps, heavy beats and fat kicks, distorded vocals, wall of noises. Sinking into a dirty and filthy noise-sludge to exorcize the human grime and primal idioms conveyed by all the summer and warm stuff, we are in deep mud.
https://fange.bandcamp.com/

MNHM
(nl)
!!! FIRST BERLIN SHOW !!!
MNHM give birth to ‘melodic noise’ from a higher and heavier dimension combining elements from post/math-rock and doom. After releasing their well-received debut album Super-Empowered and touring all over Europe, the band teamed up with producer Rocky O’Reilly (And So I Watch You From Afar) to work on their second album ‘Of Empires Past’ which was released on May 5 2017 on Consouling Sounds
https://mnhm.bandcamp.com/

PILORI
(fra)
!!! FIRST BERLIN SHOW !!!
Formed in Normandy (France) by active members of the local scene, Pilori is crust hardcore band with black metal, powerviolence and grindcore influences. After sharing the stage with bands like Nostromo, Oathbreaker, Regarde Les Hommes Tomber, Cowards, Comity or Harm Done, and releasing their first 4 tracks tape, Pilori just released a split vinyl with an american post-black metal band, Dakhma. Their sound is noisy, dark, oppressive, incisive and filthy, both fast and massive.
https://pilori.bandcamp.com/

ORTURE
(ger)
!!! TAPE RELEASE SHOW !!!
ORTURE is a new band, that crawled up to earth’s crust from different realms of the underground to deliver satanic dadaism. A raw black metal assault with shredding guitars, blasting drums, unholy roar, massive contrabass drones and gut grinding harsh noise layers. Convulsions of the black emperor’s hammer, cold sardonic industrial tremor and the nuclear dragon’s breath will unleash the beast in each and everyone of you.
They will present their first release at Noise Testament!

WRNGDNG
(ger)
VVRNGDNG stands for wrong doing, based in the wrong part of Berlin.
Snitching musick into pieces, with sharp as a shark wrongness.
Wrong party in your scum yard with trash bags full of surprises
like peaky loudness and raspy screaming, drumbeats like origami
and bass bubbles for an unknown future.

TATSUMI RYUSUI
(jap)
is a Berlin based musician born in Ehime, Japan. He taught himself to play guitar at the age of 10, and since this point has expanded into the world of circuit bending, the collection of field recordings and building his own instruments. He is active within the experimental music scene in Berlin, where he has lived and worked since 2009.
He predominantly performs with the electric guitar, which he processes along with several self built instruments through a system of pedals and effects to generate delicate, yet powerful and astonishing textures that connect drone with the cathartic side of noise. His sound embodies the sonic transition of everyday sounds into ethereal soundscapes and ambient textural improvisation.

VORDEMFALL
(ger)
There are limbs and a tongue and it’s all pretty emotionnally unstable. Vordemfall is a constant dry/wet game playing around with elements of progressive, noise and krautrock, into a haunted and moody blend. Their tendencies are based on a deeply rooted paradox. Her riffs and vocals are in turns abrasive and lustful – His hits, tribal or hyperactive.

UUUU
(uk/swe – new band with members of COIL, DOME, WIRE, TOMAGA)
!!! GERMAN PREMIERE SHOW !!!
UUUU is a new outfit featuring Edvard Graham Lewis, Thighpaulsandra, Matthew Simms and Valentina Magaletti.
Individually these humans have implanted feathers in caps such as Coil, Dome, Wire, Tomaga, etc. Collectively they form UUUU, a powerhouse construction of fierce and free sonic exploration, as liberating as it is frightening, resulting in, the richly rewarding. The artists united present a project of exquisite curiosity and confident chaos where the individual thumbprints mesh into a gloriously muscular frenetic free sonic soup. It’s Going All Over The Floor presents itself as a terse meeting between dance, ambient, abstraction and improvisation. The Latent Black Path Of Summons Served proceeds in a tense energy field where random elements bounce around until locking into a fourth world pattern designed to fall into a dense mass of ecstatic noise. Boots with Wings is classic Lewis – a pop tune from the other side of the mind.
UUUU is a schizophrenic seething/soothing masterpiece of a past/present hybrid equally at home in the club, the home and the mind.

TRANSITIONAL
(uk – members of NOVATRON, RAMLEH, HEAD OF DAVID, JESU, GREYMACHINE , GOD, TERMINAL CHEESCAKE)
!!! FIRST AND ONLY GERMANY SHOW !!!
Transitional is a project from United Kingdom of musician producer Kevin Laska (Novatron) and long time Justin Broadrick and Kevin Martin collaborator Dave Cochrane who also appears on Greymachine.
This is a band which can deliver both sonic tranquility and extremely heavy slabs of dense music and just about everything in between; Heavy electronic machinery, juggernaut bass lines and hypnotic guitars go from passive relaxation to an unstoppable machine within a single surge.
Kevin Laska’s woven creations of bleak electronic / organic mesmerizing mayhem and bliss has found a new level. Now joined by legendary bassist Dave Cochrane who played with the likes of Kevin Martin in God, Ice and The Bug and Justin Broadrick in Jesu and Head of David.
Born in September 2006 Laska’s found himself in another quality up with Cochrane, following his last collaboration with a.o. Russel Smith and Anthony Difranco (Ramleh, ex Skullflower) as Novatron. Transitional; a solid, textured and dynamic sonic journey through a world that is both self deprecating and enlightening, but either way leaves you wanting more.
In 2009 they added Phil Petrocelli on Transitional’ drums and published their second full length studio album Stomach of the Sun.
From devouring linear drones, lush melancholy to pure unadulterated rage experienced through a back drop of churning rhythms, using Cohesive experimental recording techniques combined with discordant world eating riffs enveloped in a signature approach to atmosphere and interspersing melody.
This performance will mainly consist of material from the bands first two albums “Nothing Real, Nothing Absent” & the unsung “Stomach of the Sun”. A rare opportunity to see a performance from stalwarts of the underground UK Industrial scene.

BILLY BAO
(sp – members of LA SECTA, YOGUR, ATOM-RHUMBA, GUTARIKO BAT)
!!! FIRST GERMANY SHOW !!!
“When I came from Lagos (Nigeria) to San Francisco (Bilbao)
life was tough here or there. I did not mind, I had a purpose in my life: to fight the system that screws everyday of our life. Back in my hometown, I was an unknown songwriter but, as soon as I arrived to the streets of Bilbao, I discovered Punk Rock. It had energy and attitude and was exactly what I needed.
Next thing was to get a band. I found out the most primitive drummer in Bilbao, Alberto Lopez (ex-La Secta, ex-Yogur, ex-Atom-Rhumba), and the noisiest guitarrists around, Mattin & Xabier Erkizia (ex- Gutariko Bat). The band was formed under my name, it could not have been any other way.
These songs go beyond what rock and roll is and what it could be, in fact they are the degenereation of Rock&Roll against the regeneration of Bilbao.” – Billy Bao, Bilbao Dec 2004

CARLTON MELTON
(usa – members of ZEN GUERILLA)
Mendocino County in Northern California is known for its spectacular coastline views, immense redwood trees in ancient forests and abundant nature that remains largely undisturbed by man. It is perhaps the most logical home base for a band like Carlton Melton, who compose and record their music in a geodesic dome (a.k.a. The Dome). It is the perfect setting for a band creating meditative soundtracks freed from the constraints of traditional song composition.
While Carlton Melton’s sound is heavily inspired by psychedelic music, it is equal parts, blues, rock, improvisation and drone. Whether the band is hanging on a well-defined riff reminiscent of Led Zeppelin or Joe Walsh or largely abandoning conventional music structure à la Spacemen 3 and Bardo Pond, Carlton Melton uses layers, textures and repetition to create music that makes full use of the spaces in between notes and chord changes … sonic explorations if you will.
The music that Carlton Melton makes is bold and does not hesitate to “go there” just to see what the heck might be still left out there in the world of unexplored improvisational and psychedelic music. And there is a lot of ground left to explore and cover. Whether it’s in The Dome or in the live setting, Carlton Melton give themselves full permission to realize and create spontaneous sounds and create genuine musical gestures that resonate beautifully with audiences throughout the world. How many bands can claim that?

Teenager Menopause Series / 2 

Violence Conjugale (Born Bad / Teenager Menopause) FR

14680638_341040656241407_5062143151365485442_n

From completely opposite cultural backgrounds, one is the son of a rich german industrial man and the other of a craftsman, Hans and André meet early in highschool. Their mutual love for Bowie and Kenneth Anger pushes them to flunk school and smoke in their tiny school movie room. There they dream of an ideal future, made of space travels and industrial music. Feeling the pressure from this private institution, they eventually decide to go to Berlin and see what taste has decadence there. They meet Marianne Katza, an excentric woman who tells them to come to an artist squat in Mitte district. As Warhol’s Factory, the place is an indistincte magma of ideas, musics and drugs. Here, as André begins to fiddle with a korg ms20 synth (he never told where he found the money to afford it) and dreams of exquisites performances, in another room, Hans tries to write his wildest nightmares to exorcise them. Marianne decides to introduce the future band to one of her lovers: Marc Berron, a young arrogant and rich kid blessed with a perfect ear. He helps them to slow down their drugs issues and take a new direction: to play a cold and personal music in pop format but with a feeling of urgency which caracterized young berliners. So he kidnaps them in his own studio for several weeks to experiment, give feelings and eventually find Violence Conjugale’s ultimate sound.
