Pankow, Tara in Tibet live // Herzschlag

PANKOW (IT)

Pankow, founded in Florence back in 1981, are one of the very first electronic/industrial acts coming out from Italy. The founding member Maurizio FM Fasolo and his five co-band members at that time created sounds inspired by the likes of Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire and early Kraftwerk.

After various line-up changes and the arrival of charismatic lead-singer and poet Alex Spalck, the project started to become noted also abroad and a first live-appearance in Berlin in 1984 marked the start of a long ongoing and successful career for the band.

Following a few cassette-releases and compilation appearances, Kindergarten Records – in collaboration with Polygram – released a first 4-tracks EP in 1984, that included the first more accessible, EBM-Electro-like tracks (even though the term ‘EBM’ was not ‘invented’ by that time…): songs like ‘God’s Deneuve’ and ‘Wodkachaos’ became major hits in Italy. The first LP came in 1987 on Contempo Records, and was produced by Adrian Sherwood.

Since 2016 Pankow started to collaborate with the Canadian label Artoffact by releasing their first official cassette (“Throw out Rite”, 1984) and a 10 “vinyl (Times) with the first songs released only in some Italian compilations before and a couple unpublished ones.

The band is currently active and based in France/Belgium with the frontman singer Bram Declercq.

TARA IN TIBET (IT)

Berlin-based Tara in Tibet is a project of Alessio de Felice, co-runner of label She Lost Kontrol records and owner of Last Europa Kiss records.

His perfomances are waving between noise and groovy industrial, with a touch of esoterism.

Highly recommended for fans of occult sex parties, Italian police movies and dirty raw esthetics.

TIQ

TIQ is a minimal-synth party loved and supported by different alternative scenes. DJ-sets are rigid, cold, rough-edge, blind-alley and the drum machine beats always like a metronome. No matter if the sound comes from the past, the present or the future, we are more and more devoted to select the best minimal-synth-wave music, so called “quadratic wave”.

Quadratic-wave is a word game and a concept from sound physics too, but the best way to catch it is to dance it, and the best way to dance it is by being concentrated and confined in a quadrangle as Die Tödlich Doris sang in their song Tanz im Quadrat: “Wir tanzen im Viereck, wir tanzen konzentriert”.

Band descriptions:

➤ MINAMI DEUTSCH | Tokyo, JP

Minami Deutsch was formed by Kyotaro Miula (guitar, vocals, synthesizer) in Tokyo in 2014. Their sound being influenced by both their love for Kraut Rock legends such as Can and Neu!, the band members are natural self-professed “repetition freaks” – full of driving energy. Devised by Klaus Dinger (Kraftwerk, Neu!) as its central axis, their music proceeds straightforwardly with the motorik beat, that is maniacally repeated, creating a pleasant ambience of electronic pulses drifting in space – while humorous, yet bizarre Japanese lyrics are whispered and sharp guitar tones reminiscent of Michael Karoli (Can) occasionally explode into fuzz distortion on the verge of collapse. Close your eyes and get lost.

For fans of: Can, Neu!, Kraftwerk, Faust, BorisCameraFÖLLAKZOIDKikagaku Moyo / 幾何学模様

➤ TRIGAL & BANG | Berlin, DE

With Trigal & Bang two weirdos come together to make some acoustic love on stage. Trigal a.k.a. Juan A. D’Amico, know in the scene as Camisa, is a solo artist based in Berlin. After playing for the last two decades in HC Punk bands, both in Spain and in Argentina, he has decided to focus his energy on psychedelic music. Signs of his South American roots and more recent, experimental German and Japanese influences can be heard throughout the soundscapes invoking images of madness. And then we have Adrian Bang, recognized performer, arranger and visual artist, in the last decade being a member or frequent collaborator with determinant psychedelic bands as Aqua Nebula Oscillator, The Telescopes, Chicos de Nazca or Kadavar. Nowadays he is performing on analog tapes with various effects and textural devices, aided by his own still or moving visual creations.

Civil Civic

DOTD + GREYZONE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT

Civil Civic

Die Menschmaschine

Was Kraftwerk kann, können wir schon lange, müssen sich wohl Aaron Cupper und Benjamin Green alias Civil Civic gedacht haben als sie ihr drittes Bandmitglied einfach mal Box nannten und es durch eine Maschine ersetzten. Bei den Livegigs der Australier steht Box immer ganz liebevoll in der Mitte und spuckt LED Lichter und verzerrte Töne aus. Der Sound von CC treibt durch Gefilde des verschwurbelten Indierocks, hinzu epischen Techno-Anspielungen und gleitet in psychedelische Strömungen. Das Ganze bleibt instrumental und doch vermisst man nichts.
Im Oktober veröffentlichen die zwei mittlerweile in London und Barcelona ansässigen Soundkünstler ihren zweiten Longplayer The Test, was man wenn man schnell hinschaut als etwas “faul” bezeichnen könnte, da die Band sich schon 2009 gründete.. Doch man darf nicht vergessen, dass sie CC vor allem durch ihre brachialen Livegigs einen Namen gemacht haben. Das werden sie in Berlin wieder unter Beweis stellen.

TÜSN + Prada Meinhoff

TÜSN – das sind die Berliner Snöt, Tomas und Daniel. Das sind Synthesizer, Bass und Schlagzeug. Keine Gitarren, aber jede Menge Poesie. Ihre Texte entspringen ihrem Innersten, sind roh und archaisch, erzählen von den Abgründen des menschlichen Seins und richten sich an alle Verlorenen, an alle Anderen.

TÜSN sind wie Depeche Mode, nur härter und wie Rammstein, nur in tanzbar. Dabei sind sie unglaublich intensiv und vermögen es, ihr Publikum in eine hypnotische Düsterkeit mit hinab zu reißen. Obwohl ihr Debütalbum „Schuld“ erst am 29.01.2016 erschienen ist, überzeugten sie 2015 live bereits das Publikum bei den größten deutschen Festivals wie dem Melt! und Rock am Ring oder auf ihrer Tour im Dezember und zogen die tanzenden Zuschauer in ihren Bann. Die Fans erwartet eine dunkle, intensive Live-Show mit jeder Menge Raum für Fantasie und Deutungen.

Dass sie anders sind, wird nicht nur in ihrer Musik oder Live-Performance deutlich. TÜSN ist keine Band, die viel von sich preisgibt. Bei TÜSN geht es um den Inhalt, die Musik. Sie sind reduziert und machen sich rar, eine Kunst, die nur noch wenige beherrschen und die ihnen eine mythische Aura verleiht.

In einer Mischung aus angeborener Scheu und klassischer Wahrung von Distanz vermeidet es die Band generell, sich und ihre Musik im Detail zu erklären. Sie geben vielmehr den Raum zur eigenen Interpretation. Ihre Musik schreit förmlich danach für die eigenen Zwecke benutzt zu werden und erinnert dadurch ein Mal mehr an Größen wie Rammstein und die Texte eines Till Lindemanns.

Prada Meinhoff

Das Berliner Elektro-Rockpunk Duo Prada Meinhoff, bestehend aus Rene Riewer und Christin Nichols, hat sich vor einem Jahr zusammen getan, um ihre Musik und schlechten Einflüsse unter Volk und Jugend zu bringen. Geprägt von altem deutschen Hip-Hop, über Peaches, den goldenen Zitronen, Hole und Kurt Weil, bis John Fusciante, Suzie Quatro und Kraftwerk – die Sängerin und der Bassist bringen einen Sound zusammen, den es in dieser Weise und auf deutsch gesungen sicher noch nicht gibt.
Und wenn doch, dann ist es Prada Meinhoff auch egal. Hauptsache es brennt.



HEADZ UP Vol. XLIII | CAMERA & MUGSTAR

One hears a hypnotic beat. A musical drift that sweeps the listener into a trance. Shimmering elegance, forceful bursts, a gentle flow, spherical flight. And one can hear it resonate beyond the horizon of this music. Searching, researching, yearning. Enter utopia for one night.

IN AETERNAM VALE + VOID VISION live

IN AETERNAM VALE

11392898_10153312664045891_2553982479322347257_n

In Aeternam Vale was created in Lyon, France, in 1983 under the heavy influence of punk-rock nihilism, Kraftwerk roboticism and cold, aggressive industrialism. Bridging EBM, proto-techno and synthesised dark pop, Laurent Prot was making fearless music in the 80s recently (by the likes of Silent Servant, Regis and James Ruskin) being reinterpreted as equally or more important than anything coming out of Detroit for moulding the electronic rhythmic music landscape which we inhabit today.
In Aeternam Vale, the French coldwave project helmed by Laurent Prot, has experienced an underground revival over the past few years. Following a prolific run of low-key tapes spanning back to 1984, his work has been getting a second look via Minimal Wave, Jealous God and other modern imprints. Samuel Kerridge’s Contort Records has just announced the release of IN AETERNAM VALE’s live at Berlin Atonal 2014 out on September 25, 2015.

VOID VISION

10982295_10155372600375595_3924024548485544817_n


Void Vision is a Philadelphia-based electronic project helmed by Shari Vari. It began around 2009 at a time when a wave of synth-revivalists were materializing, but the quality of the songwriting and intense vocals set the band apart from the pack. In a rare instance, Void Vision has managed to combine vintage dance elements with melodic structures, haunting melancholy, and lyrics that have a palpable soul. The songs themselves are dynamic, referencing a cross-section of the last 30 years of electronic music, while simultaneously retaining a uniqueness all their own.
The infamous Wierd Records weekly club night in New York, which showcased a variety of talented electronic and coldwave artists, served as an incubator for Void Vision in it’s early stages. The first official full-length album, entitled ‘Sub Rosa’ is set to debut on Berlin-based Mannequin Records, followed by a European tour in 2015.
