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, 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!
“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
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.

„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!“
