PEOPLE.
THE ANSWER HAS BEEN HERE THE ENTIRE TIME. JUST MUSIC, ALWAYS.
THIS IS WHAT TREVER SAID, FINISHING THE STORY OF A LONG JOURNEY. THIS OCTOBER WE HAVE STARTED A NEW ONE. TOGETHER WITH FRIENDS. WORKING ON OURSELVES, WORKING ON MUSIC. TRYING TO PUT SOMETHING TOGETHER THAT EXPRESSES WHAT WE STAND AND CARE FOR. NOT BASED ON STRATEGIC ALLIANCES, BUT REAL RELATIONSHIPS.

MUSIC IS OUR LANGUAGE. THIS IS WHAT WE SPEAK. EVERYONE IS CONTRIBUTING TOWARDS MAKING THIS THE BEST WE CAN DO. WHAT CAN WE DO? WHAT IS IN OUR HANDS, WHAT FOR?

SOMETIMES THE BIGGEST QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED WITH SIMPLE ACTIONS. THIS GET-TOGETHER IS OUR ACTION. THIS IS WHAT WE CAN DO NOW. DOING SOMETHING TOGETHER. FREE. VULNERABLE. EPHEMERAL. THAT OCTOBER WEEKEND WE OPENED OUR DOORS AND HEARTS SHOWING OURSELVES RAW, INSPIRED AND FULL OF SONGS. WE WERE THROWING IT ALL OUT THERE. BUILDING ON THINGS WE KNOW, ON TALENTS AND TOOLS WE HAVE. ADDING SOMETHING TO IT, THAT ADDS THE UNKNOWN.

IN THIS, YOU SEE US. AS HUMAN AS THIS IS. YOU HEARD MUSIC THAT YOU KNOW. MUSIC THAT YOU LOVE. SOUNDS THAT CHALLENGED YOU AND POSSIBLY ALSO MUSIC THAT HURT. WE TAKE THIS RESPONSIBILITY. THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW. AND IN FACT, IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN. BUILDING ALTERNATIVES AND BUILDING SOMETHING BASED ON WHAT COMES OUT OF ALL OF US. THINGS WE AGREE ON: EQUALITY, TOGETHERNESS, INDEPENDENCE, ABUNDANCE AND CARE, AS WELL AS TAKING CHANCES. SETTING AN EXAMPLE FOR OURSELVES.

CREATING A SPACE WHERE WE ALL CAN SPEND TIME TOGETHER. THAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE THING. THE ABILITY TO COCREATE SOMETHING THAT IS COMING OUT OF ALL OF US. THE LOVE FOR EACH OTHER, THE LOVE FOR MUSIC, AND THE LOVE FOR THIS EXPERIENCE. BEING ABLE TO RIDE THROUGH THIS LIFE, MAKING DECISIONS AND CHANGES. IT’S IN OUR HANDS.

AND IT’S JUST MUSIC. BUT THIS IS OUR ANSWER, FOR TODAY, FOR RIGHT NOW. WE ARE GRATEFUL, THAT YOU ARE WITH US.

Gambri! Grandabræður í Berlin

 

———

GRANDABRÆÐUR DO BERLÍN

It is time for the brothers of Reykjavík to leave the city. For the past years they have become known for their multi-faceted shows, books, fonts, paint, moonshine and tattoo making, not to mention the HAPPY Festival that combines all of these things and more.

This time there will be no time for fake Interrail tickets and bottomless backpacks; there has to be an exhibition. When the clock strikes seven in the evening of June 15th, the doors of Urban Spree will open to the public. The name of the show is GAMBRI, the Icelandic word for when you mix yeast, sugar and water in a bucket to make alcohol. It is a philosophical reflection of that we will do at the show, mix a few things together and invite you to come and get drunk.

Group Show:

Qwick
Kiddöst
Kleina
Mottan
Johnny Chrome Silver
Frankie Teardrop
Sleepofer
Sniper

We also have other members of the extended family joining us, a mix of Reykjavík and Berlin based music people. Psychadelic rap and very techno.

Come to Urban Spree and be warmly welcomed by the brothers!

________________________________

Grandabræður hafa nú getið sér gott orð hér heima fyrir með sinni alþekktu uppátækjasemi. Þau uppátæki spanna lista á borð við: margþættar sýningar sem eiga það sameiginlegt að leysast upp í eintóma vitleysu, bókaútgáfur, leturhönnun, misvinsæla málun, Grandalanda og húðflúrunum langt fram eftir morgni. Þá má ekki gleyma uppskeruhátíðinni HAPPY sem inniheldur allt ofantalið og meira.

Nú er þó komið að tímabundnum skilnaði við landsteinana því haldið verður út á meginlandið. Ekki þó í hefðbundna utanlandsferð með falsaðann lestarmiða og botnlausan bakpoka heldur hefur Grandabræðrum boðist að sýna í einu þekktasta götulistargallerís heims, Urban Spree.

Sýningin hefst á slaginu sjö þann 15. júní næstkomandi og stendur yfir í fimm daga. Nafn sýningarinnar, GAMBRI, endurspeglar útrásina til Þýskalands þar sem hugviti bræðranna verður sullað saman innan veggja gallerísins og reynt verður að eima. Gestir og gangandi fá svo að dreypa á niðurstöðunni.

Ekki er það þó allt og sumt heldur hefur bræðrunum verið falið að setja saman dagskrá í samtengdum tónleikasal gallerísins samhliða sýningunni sem verður eitthvað á þessa leið:

Skrattar og Djöfullinn sjálfur
TY (ˈtiː ˈwaɪ) (Geimfarar – Dungeon Massive)
Kuldaboli
ThizOne (FALK)
Ljótur
Rafiðn
Konsulat
Cucumb45 (bbbbbb Records)
Ljósvaki
Volruptus (Sweaty Records)
Kosmodod (Sweaty Records)
Ásamt fleiri góðum gestum.

Látið slag standa, bókið miða til BÖRLIN og verið hjartanlega velkomin í hlýjan faðm Grandabræðra í Urban Spree!
