Official: Lydia Lunch ist nicht nur eine Ikone der Punk/Postpunk/No Wave-Szene. Die quirlige Amerikanerin darf man getrost als perfekte Allroundkünstlerin bezeichnen. Sängerin, Spoken Word-Poetin, Schriftstellerin, Schauspielerin, Soundtrackkomponistin, Buchautorin, Regisseurin und Vorreiterin der Riot Grrrl-Bewegung, so lauten nur ein paar Attribute ihrer Karriere.

Bereits die ersten musikalischen Gehversuche mit ihrer Combo Teenage Jesus And The Jerks zeigen die rohe, zornige und dabei vollkommen unbekümmerte Richtung ihres künftigen Schaffens. Damals ein totaler Kommerzflop, genießen diese frühen Platten heute echten Kultstatus. Ein weiteres frühes Highlight veröffentlicht sie 1980 mit dem Solodebüt “Queen Of Siam”, das neben einer berühmt-berüchtigten Version von “Gloomy Sunday” auch Szeneklassiker wie “Atomic Bongos” enthält.

If Elvira, Patti Smith and Nick Cave had a love-child somehow, Candice Gordon would be her shaman priestess. Her songs are potions taken directly out of Dr Caligari’s cabinet, fixing to heal the wounds of the human animal.

THE VACANT LOTS are an American duo comprised of Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen. The key element of The Vacant Lots’ minimalist, primitive rock and roll songs is their boundless energy, which tears up the psych template with a genuine punk spirit. The notion of duality is also a recurring theme in the band’sminimal means maximum effect aesthetic, whether in their lyrics or fiercely monochromatic artwork. Having recently toured Europe with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Vacant Lots will be hitting the road this summer with The Dandy Warhols in the USA.

Medicine Boy is a Dream Noise duo from Cape Town, South Africa. Influenced by the likes of Rowland S. Howard, Spiritualized, The Mary Chain and The Bad Seeds, the pair tread the fine line between the calm and the chaotic. Formed in 2014 by André Leo (vocals/guitar), Lucy Kruger (vocals/keys) and a drum machine, the band quickly began headlining shows and festivals in South Africa and toured Europe and the UK in 2015 + 2016. The band’s sound is as much about the noise as it is about the spaces between. Grinding organ sinks beneath waves of guitar that are at times gentle and drifting, at others feral and unforgiving. Lucy and Andre’s voices remain entwined and intimate. The band is currently based in Berlin.

Perilymph – Deux Tour – Record Release Party

In April Perilymph released their album „II“ via Six Tonnes De Chair Records & on May 18th we’ll celebrate that in Berlin!

presented by ASK HELMUT & MILK ME

“Some types of music enable the listeners bodies to move, to vibrate while the sound dwells inside. Other types of music are more informal, as they provide deeper emotions that stay with the listener even after the music has stopped. The music of Perilymph belongs to the latter category. After many incarnations, Perilymph is today a group that is strong, tight, passionate about what they can create together. Animated by the simple pleasure of playing all together as one.”

⊙ BIG ‡ BRAVE ⊙
Southern Lord Records
In existence since 2012 with members Robin Wattie, Mathieu Ball and Louis-Alexandre Beauregard spread across two guitars and drums respectively, BIG|BRAVE sound many magnitudes bigger than one would suspect a trio is capable of. Anticipation gracefully helps to build up every salvo launched by the band, assaulting the eardrum with incredible precision. Their compositions increasingly more refined, juxtaposing sparse minimalism with thunderous feedback, BIG|BRAVE strives to continue pushing the limits of what heavy experimental rock can sound like while maintaining a strong interest in reaching bliss.
Somewhere between the margins of a minimal rock band, experimental outfit and drone aficionados, BIG|BRAVE strives to never belong to anyone given classification. Utilising standard “band” tools such vocals, electric guitars, drums, feedback and amplifiers, B|B explores the possibilities of what a band can sound like while constantly resisting and deconstructing the archetypal characterisations of song structure and form.
Building spectacular, inverted rock constructions that sound many magnitudes bigger than one would suspect a trio was capable of, Montreal’s BIG|BRAVE has been in existence since 2012, with members spread across two guitars and drums respectively. Unhurried and untouchable, BIG|BRAVEpossess that same valued independent spirit which pervades their local contemporaries, and is at the root of their intense and exploratory musical offerings. Their sound lulls and lurches between passages of rhythmic noise pollution and vocal led awe, using considered juxtapositions of force and restraint to warp the senses. Remarkably quiet at times, their ambiance is not one of minimalism, but of dawning, foreboding power with the need to be vented, and when the hot flushes of blighted percussion and monochromatic guitar scrapes arrive, they arrive with triumphant force.

⊙ MY DISCO ⊙
Temporary Residence / Downwards Records
MY DISCO is an Australian music group that was formed between long term 2018 collaborators, Rohan Rebeiro, Benjamin Andrews, and Liam Andrews in 2003.
In 2003, MY DISCO performed their first shows in unconventional all-ages venues in Melbourne.
Late 2003 saw the release of their debut 7″ and marked their first Australian tour. The band soon became renowned for their arduous tour ethic, demonstrated in extensive tours to often far to reach destinations that included remote areas of Australia, Southeast Asia and Mexico.
The release of their debut album ‘Cancer’ in late 2006 marked a new level of emphasis on minimalism. More international and national tours were undertaken, including additional tours to the United States, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Their second album ‘Paradise’ was recorded in Chicago, Illinois in 2007 with Steve Albini at his studio Electrical Audio. The album is noted as the band’s most refined and minimalist release, capturing their stentorian live sound, with several songs consisting of one note, repetitive single-sentence vocals and long- sustained guitar chords. Drum patterns, although minimal, still offer dance-like, disjointed beats.
2010 saw the release of a new single called “Young”, a limited edition 12″ released through Mistletone Records and re-issue through Blast First Petite, as a lead up to their third and forthcoming album.
2010 Saw the release of the band’s third and most diverse album, ‘Little Joy.’ Their first signing to NYC acclaimed label, Temporary Residence Limited.
2012 MY DISCO released another limited 12″, this time World Wide through Temporary Residence Ltd, entitled “Wrapped Coast.” The record features two extensive racks, with remixes by London’s Factory Floor, and Birmingham based noise-maker Justin Broadrick.
On International Record Store Day in 2013, the band put out a single on one of the World’s most acclaimed independent labels, Sub Pop records. It featured as the label’s 1000th release.
2014/15 saw the band put the finishing touches on their fourth studio album, entitled “Severe” and once again working with Producer and friend Cornel Wilzcek at Electric Dreams Studios in South Melbourne.

⊙ NONN ⊙
Fuzz Club Records
The debut from NONN was a stark collection of minimalistic post-punk that marked him as one of the most exciting outputs in the dark Scandinavian scene. After touring the record across Europe and recruiting a full band, the project is back with its second album, XVII, due for release December 7th on Fuzz Club.
Now more of a collaborative effort, with Hannes Nyling and Christian’s brother Alexander joining the fold, the new record deals in a fuller more refined sound and packs a far heftier punch. Where the self-titled debut was a restrained, minimalist affair, XVII opts for slabs of industrial electronics and hard-hitting percussion. The gloomy 80s sensibilities are still there – see the occasional Cure-esque guitars and morose gothic vocals – but on XVII, NONN turn their eyes more towards the electronic affliction of EBM and synth-punk than the polished, more-digestible post-punk that came reverberating out of the decade.
This shift in the band’s sound all boils down to having to reinvent the songs when taking them on the road following the release of their debut, which saw them tour the UK and mainland Europe and play at a number of festivals; from Liverpool Psych Fest and Fuzz Club Eindhoven to, more recently, Endless Daze in South Africa. “Since the last record we’ve been doing a lot of shows which gave us a lot of inspiration. We reworked the old songs to sound a bit fuller and more fun to play live. Having to reinvent all the sounds and instruments from the first album really inspired the direction on XVII,” Christian remarks.
It’s clear that taking the project on the road with a full-band has had a notable effect. Tracks like ‘Clear’, ‘Home’ and ‘Beyond’ see NONN shift their bleak, darkwave-inflected post-punk into something far richer. It’s still got that minimalistic feel and the ear-worm melodies are still there, but it’s more sinister and fleshed out. Though, what truly sets this album apart from the debut is where the band have delved deeper into their electronic side. The industrial stomp of album-opener ‘Pray’ declares the LP’s merciless intent without a guitar in sight; it’s a destructive cut of throbbing synths and desolate drum machine, underpinned by Christian’s monotonous vocals. Partner that with the sparse, haunting electronics of ‘Believe’ and the mechanical synth-punk of ‘Hide’ and it’s clear that NONN are at their best when truly embracing their deeply-cherished Moog Sub Phatty, using it to exorcise the many demons lurking beneath the noise.
