Musik   thirsty & miserable: Milemarker (Post-Electronic HC - Rec-Release-Show) + Soft Grid (Krauty Experimental Postpunk, Bln)

milemarkerdoors 19:00 - show 20:00
soft grid Formed 1997 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina by Al Burian, Dave Laney and Ben Davis, Milemarker quickly gained recognition in the independent music scene for their explosive live shows and adventurous instrumentation. The band became known for its combination of post-hardcore punk with new wave electronics, and found a solid touring line-up 1999-2004 in Burian, Laney and singer/synth player Roby Newton. Milemarker played circa 1000 shows in support of their releases Frigid Forms Sell (Lovitt, 2000) and Anaesthetic (Jade Tree, 2001), touring extensively in North America, Europe and Japan, along the way sharing the stage with bands such as Wire, Mission of Burma, At The Drive-In, The Hives, Thursday, Blood Brothers, International Noise Conspiracy, High On Fire, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Muff Potter, Cave In, Les Savy Fav, Spoon, Monochrome, Turbostaat, The Faint, The Locust, and Hot Snakes.

Milemarker added double drummers Tony Lazzara and Noah Leger as well as string arrangements from siblings Beth and Tim Remis for the recording and US tour around Ominosity (Eyeball, 2005). In 2008 the band completed a US and European tour with founding member Ben Davis, including performances at the SXSW and Fusion festivals.

In 2009, guitarist Dave Laney moved to Hamburg and focused his musical energy into the band Auxes, while bassist Al Burian moved to Berlin to pursue literary and journalistic interests. A re-ignition of the band on German soil seemed inevitable. Milemarker returned to the stage in 2015 with Lena Kilkka on keys and vocals and Ezra Cale on drums.

In an abandoned hospital ward in 2014, Jana and Theresa penned the opening sketches of an EP that would eventually become Soft Grid’s debut Stingrays (Cassette, Twaague, 2015, sold-out). The resulting layered synths, reminiscent of early lo-fi psychedelia, were supported for early live dates by drummer and producer Sam. The sound subsequently developed into Soft Grid as it is today - its reinforced rhythm section, and highly effected vocal aesthetic pouring eclectic references through an extended live show.

After extensive performing in early 2016, spring will see the return to the studio with renowned producer Christian Mevs alongside label owner Silvain Livache to record the live show they’ve been playing for the last months, a single 27 minute long navigation through big hooks, extended ambience and heavy synth breakdowns.

Musik   Lofi Lounge presents: Tan Le Racoon(Indie/Hasenschaukel/Hamburg) + Royal Comfort (Oska Wald + Jummy Trash/Berlin)

DJ Monophonic (Indie, Electro, Pop)
Tan Le Racoon

Der Gentleman Bohemian Tan Le Racoon, Macher des legendären leider nun geschlossenen Clubs Hasenschaukel, wo in den letzten Jahren auf dem Hamburger Kiez dutzende Bands von Scout Niblett bis Doctorella gespielt haben, jetzt mit seiner eigenen Band (Musikalische Richtung Nikki Sudden/Swell Maps) im Schokoladen Berlin!

"Tan .U Sound should be seen as the loose association of Tan LeRacoon, Toxicgirl and Jetboy, all being multiple -not shizophrenic- personalities of gentleman Punk Tanju G. Boru, with reccuring friends and guests, who all have in common the urge to explore the world as it is; in all this world's own multiple beauty of reality, dreams, illusion and corruption.

The emphasis is set on being 'creator' instead of 'consumer'. People who are creative, who create are "god-like" creators of new worlds, of worlds of their own. Writing stories, storytelling in songs or simply imagining. That's the fun of being. Bending reality, blurring reality into something else. But more of this some other time...

So here we stand, in all respect to the world around us. Creating from our intuition not from any formulas our heads or the media gave us. At least we hope. Musically, the Tan likes to call it Glam Dub, others have called it 'Gothic Soul', it will always be Rock n Roll, by attitude, may it be deep Dub Bass, some technoid thunderstrom or just plain folky bluesy songwriting. It should all be connected by some mutual spirit.

A musical diversity hails from growing up to Moms records ("Elvis was great, but Dion was my first hero"), a punk rock adolescence, numerous bands, and a fanzine from the late seventies on, maturing through the school of New York City streets, almost being famous, and later the californian surf. Having played with seminal (punk-) rock heroes, and formed a hamburgian Reggae Soundsystem in the 80s (before it became pop culture), and touring with other acts when not doing his own, and as a DJ spinning records all over the world, leaving listeners irritated as the sound may jump from Reggae to Bluegrass to experimental electronics, Jazz and Techno, no guarantee given.

Next to this, the Tan writes words, some poetry compilations and one book, "Near By The End of The Rainbow or The Last Journey" being self-published and sold out(well, nearly, we have a few copies -approx 10- of the original 150 edition lying around, and some excerpt will appear on these pages fairly soon). Some new novels are works in progress, so is a compilation of some things past of the Tan, plus the Tan LeRacoon album, which wa sjust released in April 2016. After all, all was just the beginning..."

Royal Comfort

began as a street music project by a pubescent Oska Wald(chuckamuck) and a freshly migrated Jimmy Trash all of 9 years ago. The band was a rough and tumble folk punk band that used to entertain tourists for cash and also an excuse learn some of our favourite old-time-religion standards and classics on guitars, melodicas and balalaikas.

After both Jimmy and Oska moved on to more electric and professional projects, they both missed the loose improvisations and story telling warmth of these songs. Add to this their new relationship with the incredible talents of country superstar and drummer extraordinaire Big Daddy Mugglestone, and the Royal Comfort project is ready for a radiant and inspired rebirth.

Mixing the rapscallion rag that the young Jimmy Trash and Oska Wald used to get away with, with the inspiration of the heaviest country, soul and folk songwriters they have been touched by over the years, permutating into an intimate, americana inspired session of new songs and originals, continuations of folk themes, melancholic and bawdy rumpus numbers.
