⊙ ØRESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE ⊙
ØSC is an ever changing music collective from Denmark and Sweden that play totally on the spot improvised deep trip space rock music. They have released 25 (!!!) records since 2006. Music for your mind to escape the Matrix.
– latest release:
“Chatoyant Breath” – May 16, 2018
“ØSC had been at the Black Tornado recording back in November but our friend Gary (Yawning Man) was in town and wanted to jam. It had been a long time since the main touring band of ØSC (Nick, Jiri, Mogens, myself) had been in the studio. We grabbed Martin, who plays with Nick, Jiri and Mogens in the Univerzals as well as with Jiri in his band, Fri Galaxe to play drums. He had played quite a few gigs with us in Denmark the last years. Nicklas from Papir, was a great choice to play with Gary as both are fans of each other and we love to play with Nicklas. We had a cool band.
This session was pretty fast, all done in one day and just 5 jams recorded. The vinyl is an edited version of the jams, while the CD features extended versions of the tracks so you can hear more or less the entire course of the musical journey. The music on these sections is more spaced out, relaxed and exploratory as it flows and weaves and grows tentacles to tickle and scratch your inner thoughts. Enjoy the sensations.” – Dr. Space, 2018

⊙ BLACK MOON CIRCLE ⊙
BMC from Trondheim is dedicated to dark psychedelic space rock, driven by a disposition towards prolonged jams.
– latest release:
“Flowing into the 3rd Dimension” – August 25, 2017

⊙ MOUNTAIN DUST ⊙
Mountain Dust’s set was a blast of cymbal crashing, headbanging hard rock laced with doom metal and a sensible dosage of psychedelic pretensions. The songs weren’t excuses for aimless guitar wankfests, but slithering heavy jams (the bass player laid hypnotic grooves on his Rickenbacker) that turned in on themselves like a snake eating its tail. Organ à la Deep Purple gave the music a gothic nuance, but the big surprise was lap steel guitar fed through an effects rack.
The band reinvented their blues-metal sound — a genre now as outmoded as bell-bottoms and songs about scoring with underage groupies — with well-crafted riffs that make you forget it’s all the same 4/4 rhythm you’ve heard a million times. They had masterful dynamics and pauses: the music breathed, but it breathed like Godzilla. For four thrashers who look like head shop regulars, Mountain Dust didn’t play a bum note all night.

Jim Avignon: Permanent Jetlag

Urban Spree is proud to invite you to a special summer program around the Berlin-based artist Jim Avignon. 

In the first part, Urban Spree Galerie will show “Permanent Jetlag“, a new solo show by Jim Avignon, his first exhibition since 2 years in the german capital. The Opening Reception will be on Friday, June 30th and the exhibition will run until July 23rd.

In the second part, “Spectacular” is a special music festival over 4 days designed & curated by Jim Avignon, Urban Spree, and Sylvie Astii with live performances in the Galerie on a custom-built stage designed by Jim and in the Concert Room. The Festival will be on July 5th to July 8th.

The exhibition “Permanent Jetlag” and the music program “Spectacular” illustrate and combine the two facets of Jim Avignon, a recognized visual artist, musician and performer through his moniker Neonangin.

Jim Avignon is a painter, illustrator and conceptual artist. Always ready to confront the establishment he is torn between pop art, street art, Picasso on acid or simply being the fastest painter in the world. His signature style consists of vivid colours, a biting humor, unpretentious materials and a mind numbing output.

Jim Avignon’s exhibition „Permanent Jetlag“ at Urban Spree Galerie is about the balancing act of virtual life and real life. He depicts how the internet and social media have gradually changed society, and he also addresses man’s tragic, and often comical attempts to keep up with technology. On one hand the world is getting smaller yet in our minds it keeps getting bigger, making it difficult to be everywhere at the same time.

Avignon’s narrative motives are a potpourri of political and societal topics, art, pop culture and characters from fairytales and fables. His paintings serve as a stage for diverse protagonists from figuration, cartoons, anime and a fantasy world. Animals embody the human condition while the unknown lurks behind a façade of cheerfulness.

In Avignon’s fantasy world interchangeable freaks from the catalogue of postmodern society stand around, as their lively inanimate facial expressions reveal a mix of emotions, boredom, indecisiveness and resignation.

Sampling, cover versions and epiphenomena, like gamification, are central concepts in his creative work, they are references to the conflicting poles of visual art, music, mass media and the industry.

Jim Avignon curated a music festival that will happen alongside his exhibition „Permanent Jetlag.” Longtime comrades will perform in the middle of the exhibition space. Jim Avignon created a stage specifically for this occasion. The entire show will be transformed into a walk through installation.

Jim Avignon has been living and working in Berlin for more than 20 years. In the 1990s he adorned clubs with his decorations and became known as the ‘painter of the techno scene’. In 2013 he unleashed controversy when he staged a flashmob to paint over his landmark mural on the East Side Gallery without permission. Velocity and change have always been key issues in his creative work. The title of one of his first exhibitions was “highspeedworld.” In 1993 he already titled a painting “spoilsport in the internet.”

Arno De Cea & The Clockwork Wizards + The Diegos

For the first time in Germany, Arno De Cea & the Clockwork Wizards come from the inbred ‘garage’ scene from Bordeaux, where they shared stages, amps, beers and sweat with other great bands from the City of Wine, such as the Magnetix or JC Satan.
Playing surf music as if it was a subdivision of heavy metal, they call it ‘Brutal surf’ and they mean it. No 60’s dandy revivalism here, but rather survivalism, and instead of the polite Dick Dale covers for your grandmother, expect an intense live experience, close to trying to surf in a tornado.
