French writer Tera releases a screen print

Tera writes on trains and in the streets of Paris and Berlin together with the VMD and the 1UP Crew since the early 2000s. During the summer of 2016, Tera and his graffiti mate Denk roamed extensively the Balkan region by train for a few weeks of rough adventures loaded with Interrail passes.

From the Iron Gates to Slovenia, passing through northern Greece, Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, and Croatia, the penniless duo bombed trains and streets and leave on the cheap, making strange encounters and a video. L’Aventure c’est l’Aventure !

‘La Night’ has been drawn by Tera to commemorate his bombing trip. It is a limited edition screen print of 45, signed and numbered, hand-pulled in Berlin and available in the Urban Spree shop in Berlin and online for 45€. It can be ordered here.



Mueran Humanos + Tildaflipers + Eyes Gone

Mueran Humanos (Berlin)

Presenting for the first time all the songs of their upcoming album “Hospital Lullabies”

Tildaflipers (Argentina)

Berlin debut as part of their first European tour
“Tildaflipers was formed by veterans of several hardcore and post rock bands and lead by Tomas Spicolli, an artist who remains crucial in the development of DIY culture and street art in Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo. Its main influence is dub, but instead of sticking to the genre, the band took its premises and techniques and ran away with them to make a sound of their own. They can end up sounding like pop sometimes, although they’re coming from the opposite end of the spectrum.”

Eyes Gone (Berlin)

Live debut of this evil industrial techno.

Anthony Lister’s solo show until 20.10.2018

Anthony Lister‘s solo show at Urban Spree Galerie – “Sneaky Bit In” – which opened last week in Berlin, will be on display for 1 month until 20.10.2018 and will be our flagship exhibition during the Berlin Art Week (26-30.09.2018).

 

 

The exhibition is the outcome of 3 weeks of an intense residency in Berlin, during which the Australian artist produced a painting cycle based around the 1973 cult movie “The Holy Mountain” by Alejandro Jodorowski and incorporating mythological & biblical elements, as well as clear references to Picasso and Damien Hirst. Lister has been obsessively confronting himself to Picasso during the last 6 months and his new production marks a step away from his most famous cycles (superheroes, ballerinas), albeit retaining some aspects of the recent flower cycle (sunflowers in the “Pan As Pimp” painting), and incorporating some lister-esque elements and details, which makes a Lister painting a Lister painting.

3 very large paintings (each 280 x 300 cm) compose the backbone of the exhibition, including a revisitation of Picasso’s “Les demoiselles d’Avignon” (“Pan As Pimp“). 3 medium-sized portraits of women complete the painting cycle. Besides this new series of paintings, Lister produced a sculpture and a short movie hacking the Jodorowski film by incorporating the artist’s face, voice-over, subverting it, self-editing on his cell phone.

 

In addition to the exhibition, Anthony Lister painted the Urban Spree Artist Wall (15 x 8 m). The mural tells of an alternative narrative to the painting “Tearing at the Bit” whereby the two characters of the ram and the tiger are being cast in a different manner, as well as in the painting style, this time reminiscent of Egon Schiele, painted only with a small roller fixed on top a a 6m extension pole. a paint-fueled fire extinguisher, and touches of spray paint.

The residency itself implies a lot of uncertainties as the artist is brought out of his comfort zone and the creative alterations, urgency, and risk-taking thereof are part of the process. For this residency, Lister created a studio full of references, sketches, citations, while numerous canvases were laid on the floor and painted, expanding the initial corpus set by the 3 major paintings. None of these paintings made it to the exhibition but were an essential part of the creative process and part of the artist’s universe for a part of the journey.

 

The gallery is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 12:00-19:00 or by appointment (galerie@urbanspree.com).

The catalogue of the show is available here.

The video has been filmed and edited by Gabriel Sousa (Devir Producoes, Sao Paulo) while photographs are shot by Gabriel Sousa and Lara Beins.

Last Dominion Lost / Anemone Tube / Dead Normal

13 EURO PRESALE 15 EURO ON THE DOOR

LAST DOMINION LOST AUS/DE

Last Dominion Lost has existed since 1992, formed out of the ashes of Merge (a project created by Dominik Guerin, founding member of SPK, and Jon Evans).
With the inclusion of John Murphy (ex-SPK, Whitehouse) the transition was complete. In April of 1992 the recording sessions for what was to become „The Tyranny of Distance“ began (released on Germany’s Tesco Records).

16 years later, the opportunity arose to reform the slumbering project. With the welcome addition of Ash Wednesday (Crashlands, Einstürzende Neubauten) and Julian Percy (Ratbag) the reactivated band began recordings that would ultimately surface on the 2014 album “Towers Of Silence”.

After the sudden tragic death of core member John Murphy in 2015, veteran industrial musician Till Brüggemann became the third member, bringing a new palette of sounds to the creative process. The group are currently finalising their fifth album.

ANEMONE TUBE DE
Anemone Tube was founded 1996 in South-Germany; since 2010 based in Berlin. The audio works of Anemone Tube are a unique blend of dark ambient, noise, industrial and sound-art with a strong psychogenic impact. The use of constantly shifting and altering sounds and moods is possibly one of the most intriguing things about the audio creations of Anemone Tube. Since 2007 Anemone Tube has been working on “The Suicide Series”. To this field recordings made in China and Japan build a conceptional basis. In a poetic way Anemone Tube combines analytical realism of the phenomenal world with buddhist psychology and nihilist rhetoric influenced by the works of Pier Paolo Pasolini, H.P. Lovecraft, J.G. Ballard and Hayao Miyazaki.

Releases on Auf Abwegen (DE), Raubbau/Ant-Zen (DE), Peripheral Records (GB), Silken Tofu (BE), Black Horizons (USA), La Esencia (ES) and The Epicurean (DE). Live performances since 2008 with Dave Philips (CH), Machinefabriek (NL), Post Scriptvm (USA), Troum (D), Cut Hands (UK), IRM (SWE), BJ Nilsen (N), Anenzephalia (D), Ke/Hil (D), Wraiths (UK), Svartsinn (N), Sudden Infant (CH), The (Law-Rah) Collective (NL), Hybrids (B), Shift (UK), Schloss Tegal (USA), Human Larvae (D), AX (UK), Inade (D), Trepaneringsritualen (SWE), Of The Wand And The Moon (DK), etc.

DEAD NORMAL UK/CAT -Berlin debut-

Somewhere in between early industrial, raw punk and murky techno, Dead Normal is a three-headed unit from Barcelona playing, in their own words, “noisy electronics and rants”. Even though it’s not easy to label Dead Normal, some influences can be traced behind their abrasive sound: the pulsating rythm of Sucide, the crude lyricism of Sleaford Mods, the challenging attitude of The Fall…

Dead Normal have won a reputation for their intense live performances. Since their foundation in 2016, they have been gigging relentlessly, sharing the bill with hardcore punk bands, synthpop combos and powerelectronics acts, including artists such as The KVB and Sutcliffe Jügend.

“There Is Nothing Left But The Enjoyment Of Senseless Destruction” is Dead Normal’s first album, soon to be released on Harbinger Sound.

AFTERNOON with Föllakzoid • Anna Bolena (DJ) and more

“If you close the door the night could last forever”
— Oh Yeah it s a Matinée —

• FÖLLAKZOID (Sacred Bones Records) – LIVE


• Anna Bolena DJ

+++ more

Föllakzoid began seven years ago as a trance experience between childhood friends Diego, Juan Pablo, and Domingo from Santiago, Chile. Heavily informed by the heritage of the ancient music of the Andes, the band has learned to integrate this influence with contemporary sounds of their times, creating a rich yet minimal atmosphere.

For III, the band wanted to expand their sound while building an atmosphere with mainly monochords and reiteration. After recording and mixing the album on their own at their studio at BYM Records, they partnered with German elec- tronic maestro Atom TM to flesh out the album’s synth parts. Most of the sounds he provided were atonal electronic sounds, aiming for concrete frequencies and sampled organic glitches. (The Korg synthesizer Atom TM plays on this record was used by Kraftwerkon a tour during the ’80s and given to him by Florian Schneider.)

III is a four-part minimal sound voyage in which you can hear Föllakzoid’s musi- cal language developing into something more upbeat, obscure, and sharp, yet even simpler in terms of elements. During the past year, the band played more than 80 gigs, including at Primavera Sound Festival (both Porto and Barcelona), ATP Festival in the UK, Musique Volantes in Lyon, and Lollapalooza Chile. The shows for III, including a confirmed set at Austin Psych Fest in May, should spread the band’s fog-enshrouded gospel to an even wider audience.
