“underneath DISTEL’s third full length release lies a thorough personal re-evaluation of truth, unveiling and being. ‘wapens’ is the dutch word for ‘weapons’ and also translates to ‘family crests‘ or ‘coats of arms‘. however, a third sense, more specifically related to the kindred word ‘wapenen‘, is explored in the title track’s lyrics which propose a state of being wherein the self becomes an existential monolith – becomes focally reinforced in the sense that its presence refers first and foremost to only its own individual being instead of the networks of meaning that we tend to define ourselves by.
DISTEL’s intention while working on this album was to achieve a more direct, massive and monolithic sound than before: to channel most energy through an insistent impulse within the rhythmic and melodic movement – from stomping stabs to legato motion – and make every other embellishment secondary. this initial thought is the core of the music on this album and an overall synthesised modern classical mode is the guideline for new tracks. another aim is to show more colour, truth and openness – and this openness is obviously echoed in the sound of the album itself. thematically ‘wapens’ includes many references to end times, apocalyptic visions, embodiment and authenticity towards death. while its predecessors presented the ‘muffled sounds from within’, now the pandora‘s box has been opened for all to gaze upon its vast spectrum of horrors.
the self-applied tag ‘ultra / angst pop’ could now be redefined from the original industrial-based minimal electronics into a unique contemporary strain of high energy synth-pop-noir, or ‘dark energy’. a quite evocative mixture of excellent subliminal rhythm machine programming, predominant purging keyboard lines and swirling spectral vocals result in twisted dark wave pieces with a catchy approach carrying an overwhelming, coercive energy.”

“After the highly successful first album ‘Guilt Kollektion’ – sold out almost immediately – here comes the long awaited brand new album by the still young Swedish EBM institution, containing 11 tracks of amazing darknoise and EBM! ALVAR: pulsing, shadows, thrilling rhythms, furious loops and a feeling of total takeover of your soul.
ALVAR from Öland/Sweden, ‘discovered’ by Dirk Ivens (Klinik, Absolute Body Control, Sonar, Dive… & founder of Daft) 2 years ago, making music inspired by deserted places, forgotten houses and old legends. Alvar offer a clash between techno, old school industrial and EBM in a unique combination that makes this fresh new act extraordinary!”

“Have You Seen the Listers?” on Netflix

Have You Seen the Listers?” is a poignant documentary about the life of the artist Anthony Lister, whom we had the privilege to host during a 3-week art residency in Berlin in September 2018.

Directed by Eddie Martin and using mainly the artist’s home video footage, “Have You Seen the Listers?” is a harrowing tale of the rise to artistic fame of the Brisbane-born artist, from the first happy family moments to a very unstable lifestyle, crises, drugs, and a crushing separation.

It is as much about parenthood and family life as making it as a great artist, moving from conservative Australia to NYC, challenging the codes of art, leaving his mark in galleries and on the street, being free, oblivious and focused, but being unable to maintain a normal family life, and enduring severe breakdowns.

The movie is now available on Netflix.

 



Basement Bash Vol.XVI – Surfbort, Gringo Star, Askers Dodge

 

Basement Bash was born a whole two years ago! Yeah – we can’t believe it either but as a present from us to you we’re offering an electrifying Tuesday night filled with debauchery, mayhem and attitude. You know the drill, just show up.

————–

Surfbort
Surfbort, a four-piece punk band from Brooklyn, New York, channels inspiration from the 80’s punk scene to produce rousing, explosive music.
Surfbort’s live experience is visceral and confrontational so no wonder The Black Keys picked them to open for their 2018 tour and Julian Casablancas (The Strokes) signed them to his label, Cult Records.
Surfbort’s feedback-strafed, guitar-shredding punk music says no to a digital age full of intolerance; they radiate love and friendship. All are welcome in the SURFBORT FREAK FAMILY!

Gringo Star
“Mixing one part punk rock ethic, one part manic performance and a heavy dose of 1950’s Americana….Images of old Western shootouts, drunken nights in saloons and frantic pianos were all over the place while they played.” – Consequence of Sound

Askers Dodge
Up-and-comers Askers Dodge are a blistering international 4 piece based in Berlin, kindling shades of Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys and Black Sabbath. Be careful that their retro daydreams don’t turn you into the screaming teenagers of the 50’s.

20:00 – Doors
21:00 – Askers Dodge
21:45 – Gringo Star
22:30 – Surfbort
23:15 – Basement Bash DJ set

Entry: 7€ – 5€ with valid student ID

Urban Spree and Hura Collective present: ERBEN: VLASY

… The king remained as if the sword had stab his chest through. He didn’t sleep until morning; he wondered what and how, to so that it did not happen what he heard here …

Prague-based puppet theater and performance crew Hura Collective presents in Berlin at Urban Spree a puppet performance from the cycle of dark adaptations of the fairy tales of K.J. Erben.

K. J. Erben (1811-1870) was a Czech folklorist and writer of fantasy prose from the 19th century in the wake of the Gebrüder Grimm.

VLASY means “hair” – referenced in the performance as the three golden hair, and accounts for the first part of the story HAIR – EYES – DEATH based on the stories from K. J. Erben.

The King, who loved to chase game the woods, eventually, after a number of evil deeds, he longed to chase for the game forever. Hand of destiny, drowned Princess, revived skeleton, shadows, live sounds on the springs and bells in the tradition of family puppet theaters.

Prague-based Hura Collective, mostly through the “Echt Street Puppets” project and the leadership of Hza Bažant, is the main driving force behind the renewal of the czech millenary tradition in puppet mastery, bringing the art to a larger scale with some puppets ranging in the 4 to 5 meters range.

The theater performance is wordless, so it is suitable for all public. However due to a dark theme and supernatural elements, we advise it may not suitable for children under 8.

The premiere of the event will be launched in Prague on 01.12.2018 (http://www.jatka78.cz/cs/inscenace/erben-vlasy) and will premiere in Germany on Saturday, December 15th, 2018.
