Musik   Tin Woodmen (Indierock/Stuttgart) + we want a king (Rock/Stuttgart) prestented by Punkfilmfest Berlin Booking

TIN WOODMENdoor 7 pm, show 8 pm (Aftershowparty from 10 pm with DJ)
Wenn sich diese vier Jungs aus dem schwäbischen Hinterland treffen, kracht es ordentlich. Gegensätze ziehen sich an und so schafft es TIN WOODMEN Garagen-Sound mit sanften Melodien zu vereinen, harte Instrumental-Passagen mit feinen Indie-Klängen. Das Quartett überschreitet die Grenzen des Genres mit Genuss und überrascht das Publikum immer wieder mit seinen Einfällen. Drums, die wie eine Lokomotive nach vorn ziehen. Bass, der Eier hat wie ein echter Kerl. Die warme volle Stimme von Sänger Nelson und vor allem diese next-level-Gitarrenwand. Das ist TIN WOODMEN.

Ob Club oder Festival, diese Band passt auf jede Bühne. TIN WOODMEN hat sich über die Jahre hinweg von der Garagenband zu einem wuchtigen Live-Act gemausert und mit Szenegrößen wie Schmutzki, Bakkushan, Benzin oder TOS gespielt. Die vier Musiker haben ihren Sound gefunden. Sie werfen ihre Wortklänge spielerisch durch die Venues und begeistern damit sowohl Genreliebhaber als auch Neulinge. Wir waren alle mal in einer Garagenband - aber hatten keine Ahnung, wie Indie-Rock wirklich geht. TIN WOODMEN weiß es.

Musik   schnick schnack schnuck + thirsty & miserable: THE WORLD (Upset The Rhythm, California) + Nunofyrbeeswax (Lo-Fi Pop-Punk, Bln)

the worlddoors 19:00 - show 20:00

THE WORLD are five people from Oakland, California who write rambunctious dance music with a post punk tool kit and an insightful yet short attention span. Their songs typically clock in around two minutes long and are a wild head-rush of Amber Sermeno's funk-minded bass lines and shuddering dubbed-out guitar courtesy of Andy Jordan. Amber also sings alongside Elyse Schrock, who anchors their propulsive songs with some supremely robust drumming. The steady beat is bolstered by Stanley Martinez's flurrying saxophone melodies and Alexa Pantalone's expansive bongo rhythms. Alexa also plays sax on half of the songs too, contributing further to the complex interplay of instruments that make The World's music so immediate, compelling and groove conscious.

The World sound like the future erupting out of all your favourite DIY punk 7"s simultaneously. There's the infectious momentum of Essential Logic driving things ever forward, the arty minimalism of Lilliput underscoring the band's lyrical subject matter. Whilst the instinctual songwriting of Swell Maps pervades alongside the manic humour and inclusiveness of Splodge. The World use all these lightning rods as jumping on points to hurtle us all into a new dimension very much of their own making. This upsurge of energy and vision has now been skillfully captured on the band's debut LP 'First World Record', out this October 6th on Upset The Rhythm.

Nunofyrbeeswax write and play a bunch of pop songs as raw as their hearts in a minimal set up. ...and that's how we like it!

Musik   thirsty & miserable: Valerian Swing (Exp. Post-/Math-Rock, Correggio/Italy) + Apostrophe (Post-Punk/Shoegaze, Berlin)

Valerian Swingdoors 19:00 - show 20:00
Initially emerging in 2011, Valerian Swing cemented their place as one of most interesting bands in the Italian heavy scene, with their second album "A Sailor Lost Around The Earth", and then at an international level with 2014’s ‘Aurora’.

Now 2017 sees the return of Valerian Swing following a change of personnel. One that saw the exit of bassist Alan Ferioli in favour of baritone guitarist Francesco Giovanetti. The trio went and created their fourth full length album, during a period of personnel, artistic growth and maturity that has seen them gradually expand their spectrum of sound beyond the boundaries of just being ‘heavy’. This latest chapter has resulted in new album ‘Nights’ that is undoubtedly their most accessible, rich and varied record to date.

Composed last summer over a relatively short time period (by their standards) and recorded at the turn of 2016 in Bologna and Reggio Emilia, ’Night’s saw the band work with long time friend and sound engineer Raffaele Marchetti. Mixing of was handled by Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis, Botch, Russian Circles, Caspian) at Red Room Recording in Seattle.

‘Nights' is a record that showcases Valerian Swing’s sublime technique and speed but unlike previous albums the aim was to focus more on the melodic construction of their songs and less on the extreme. The result is an album that explores more expansive post-rock, rhythmic and cinematic sounds.

At certain points throughout ‘Nights’ especially with the added vocal elements, some tracks verge into experimental pop territory, an area the band were unafraid to visit. The influence of new baritone guitarist F. Giovanetti (and synths) on Valerian Swing is evident. His place in the band allowed guitarist/vocalist Stefano Villani to lead them in a more free way allowing for experimentation with computers, electronics, processed vocals and devices different from the guitar.

Having played all over the world, including the SXSW, ArcTangGent and having shared stages with bands of the caliber of Dillinger Escape Plan, Russian Circles, Boris, Deafheaven, And So I Watch You From Afar, Valerian Swing will bring their eclectic ’Nights' in concert, first in Europe from the end of April - including a slot at Colossal Weekend in Copenhagen with Deafheaven, Oxbox and many others.

’Nights' has been released in UK/Worldwide via Small Pond on 12th May.

Press quotes:
‘Taking post-rock as a starting point, they add a little math rock, heaps of riffs, and an occasional chant to create something magnificent’ - Rock-A-Rolla

‘They found their personal approach to the songwriting, with a skillful mix of musical genres such as hardcore, indie, post rock, progressive and electronic sounds’ – Rolling Stone

Some say that Apostrophe plays post-hardcore, maybe kinda like your daddy's emo back when he hung out in the 1980s.

Some press hype:
“… Apostrophe does everything right on 'Infinity Times Zero' and really shits on every trend. … Don’t be told that you need anything more.” - Intro

"Indie rock rooted in punk rock with rad melodies combined with real good crashbangin’ guitars are on the program." - Ox Fanzine

“… [Apostrophe goes] back to the time when this genre was still meaningful and one dealt with real worries of existence … real emotions, deep riffs, loud guitars and drums that beat the rage out. Respect!” - Blueprint Fanzine

Musik   Fourtrack On Stage: Lewsberg (Lo-Fi, NL) + SONNDR (Post-Punk, NL)

co-präsentiert von Puschen und The Chop + DJ!
Lewsberg (NL) 
Lewsberg from Rotterdam is a 4-piece named after writer and fellow Rotterdam citizen Robert Loesberg, famous for his novel Enige Defecten from 1974. That is the greatest source of inspiration for the band: counterculture and big city cynicism of the 60s and 70s. Lewsberg makes rudimentary repetitive rock songs characterized by nonchalant intensity. The english lyrics, brought with a Rotterdam accent, show a tendency towards existentialism and black humor.

Glenn Kessler and Florian Veenhuis started SONDER in early 2014. In their home studio in Rotterdam they created a vast amount of wavey punk songs with strong electronic and noise elements. By 2017 they decided to take their music to the stage with Aswin van As on drums and Joris Telgen on guitar.

Musik   SCHOKOKUSS presents: No More (postpunk/wave) + an:idea (synthwave)

Aftershow: Alex Plush Anders (Glam/Punk/Wave)

NO MORE's existentialistisches „All Is Well - Senza Macchia“ untermalt einen düsteren Dortmunder Tatort, ihr Klassiker „Suicide Commando“ soll von Nick Cave einst als perfekter Ausdruck des 80er Jahre Undergrounds beschrieben worden sein.
1982 bezeichnet der New Musical Express NO MORE als "a trio of young Germans who appear to have fallen out of LOU REED´s BERLIN album".
Sie gründen die Band 1979, als Punk und New Wave die 70er hinwegfegen, lösen sich 1986 auf als die 80er zu sehr 80er sind.
Ende 2008 kommen NO MORE zurück, verdichtet auf das Duo Tina Sanudakura und Andy Schwarz.
Sie spielen über 150 Konzerte in ganz Europa, sind erfolgreicher denn je, ruhen sich nicht auf alten Lorbeeren aus und produzieren drei neue Alben.
Mit ihrem neuen, hochgelobten Album „Silence & Revolt“ stoßen NO MORE in neue Gefilde vor:
„Pop ist die Antwort“ Oder wie die Westzeit es formuliert: " ... beweist ihr neues Werk eindrucksvoll, wie man sich entwickeln kann, ohne die Wurzeln des Selbst zu verleugnen."
Der Sonic Seducer meint: "Nicht ganz zu Unrecht heißt es: hinten sticht die Biene! NO MORE haben sich die beste Musik für ihre Spätphase aufgehoben."
So eine vitale, energetische und intensive Post-Punk-Pop-Electronica Performance sieht man garantiert nicht alle Tage.

„From swirling post punk of ‘The Man Outside’ to heartbreaking pianistic outro of ‘In A Leaden Time’ you can find all the sonic universe of Andy Schwarz and Tina Sanudakura: an iridiscent kaleidoscope of new wave, kraut, synth pop, ambient sensations.
The qualitative level of these twelve new compositions is always excellent, without any fail.
A dream in Technicolor.”
(Rockerilla, Italien)


An:idea is one of the extraordinary side projects of the Berlin based sound artist Klarina Tourette. The music reminds in its inversed asperity of a lyrical whirligig merging avant-garde synthpop experiment.

The singers' chilly voice hovers over the saturnine entirety, escapes and meddles while always sharing a part of itself.
A technophile wedding as extravagant as it is compelling.

Musik   thirsty & miserable: SAVAK (Ernest Jenning Rec., Brooklyn/NY) + The Poison Arrows (File 13 Rec., Chicago)

savakdoors 19:00 - show 20:00
SAVAK was formed in 2015 by members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, Nation of Ulysses, and The Cops. Their influences range from '60s Texas psychedelia to British pub rock to early-'80s American hardcore.

Cut-Ups, the new SAVAK record on Ernest Jenning Record Co., consists of 10 immaculate nuggets of primo, left-field rock'n'roll.

It’s a heavy smorgasbord with results as laudable as one would expect given the pedigree. Cut-Ups is as kaleidoscopic, ambitious and as curious a record as you could hope for.

Like their debut LP on Comedy Minus One, Best of Luck in Future Endeavors, there’s that instant thing – instant hooks all over, instant choruses – but not cheap instant like the noodles. The flavors on this record have a long finish, with a satisfyingly wide palate.

There are pristine multi-part harmonies and skronky jazz bits, as well as odd, subtle experiments with Joe Meek-y sound design. There’s that undeniable propulsive groove that many of these guys have become synonymous with. There are also healthy smatterings of garage rock, ‘60s jangle, jazz and psych.

The devil is in the details on SAVAK records and there are many, many details on Cut-Ups.

SAVAK is Sohrab Habibion, Michael Jaworski, James Canty and Matt Schulz.
The Poison Arrows is a three-piece band from Chicago comprised of bassist Patrick Morris (ex Don Caballero), drummer Adam Reach, and guitarist, vocalist Justin Sinkovich (ex Atombombpocketknife, Thumbnail). After two LP’s and two EP’s on File 13 Records, and accompanying tours from 2007-2011, the band went on hiatus to recharge. All three of the members continued to play music. Adam made records and toured with Pink Avalanche. Justin and Patrick made an album as Acquaintances with Jered Gummere (The Ponys, Bare Mutants) Chris Wilson (Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Titus Andronicus) and Steve Schmidt (Thumbnail).

The Poison Arrows started to play shows again in 2015 with friends including Bardo Pond, Drive Like Jehu, godheadSilo, Milemarker, and Soulside. In the mean time they worked on their third album entitled ‘No Known Note.’ The title is a phrase Patrick used in rehearsal to explain to his bandmates what he was was playing on two songs in the works. There are two songs on the album named No Known Note (Part I and Part II).

The basic tracks were recorded at Electrical Audio by Greg Norman (as were the previous two albums). Bob Weston mastered it at Chicago Mastering Service. All of the overdubbed guitars, keyboards, percussion and vocals were recorded by Justin at his house and the band’s rehearsal space. One exception is Scott McCloud (Girls Against Boys, Soulside, New Wet Kojak), who recorded his own vocals for track for, “Stuck On Screen.” Other guests include Tony Lazzara (Bloodiest, Atombombpocketknife, Sterling) who plays additional guitar on “Derailmentship” and “Wedding,” and Brian Case (Disappears, Ponys, 90 Day Men) plays additional guitar on “That Window is Closed.”

For those familiar with The Poison Arrows, this album is similar to previous releases in several ways. For example, ‘No Known Note’ was written and recorded by playing together with very little individual composition outside of rehearsal, and very little conversation about arrangements and details during rehearsal. The basic tracks were recorded typically in only one or two takes. And like their last album ‘Newfound Resolutions,’ there are minimal EQ’s and effects on the instruments to maintain the original recording’s sound. The main difference from previous albums is there are almost no keyboards on ‘No Known Note.’ Justin had previously split his time equally between keyboard and guitar live and on recordings.

Jeff Kopernikus Özdemir

"Gibt es was Geileres, als im Plattenladen abzuhängen, sich durch Scheiben durchzuwühlen und über Musik zu sprechen? Für Jeff Özdemir stellt sich diese Frage gar nicht, denn in seinem Dayjob tut der 44-Jährige nichts anderes: Er ist Inhaber des 33rpm-Stores im Kreuzberger Wrangelkiez; Musik ist seine natürliche Umgebung.

Seiner zweiten Betätigung kommt das zugute: Jeff Özdemir ist zudem als Solomusiker unterwegs, in diesen Tagen erscheint sein zweites volles Album, auf dem Kollaborationen mit befreundeten Musikern zu hören sind. <blocked::blocked::> "Jeff Özdemir & Friends Vol. 2" heißt es - und die 18 Stücke haben es in sich.

Özdemir, der bürgerlich Adem Mahmutoğlu heißt und in der Türkei geboren ist, kam 2010 aus Bremerhaven nach Berlin - und brachte seinen Plattenladen gleich mit. Die Liebe zu ganz unterschiedlichen Genres zeigt sich schon in seinem Künstlernamen: Mahmutoğlu schätzt die US-amerikanische Kultur und deren Mix und Hybridität, also verband er einen typisch amerikanischen Vornamen mit einem typisch türkischen Nachnamen.

Sein neues Album deckt eine breite Stilpalette ab. Da sind jazzige Cool-down-Stücke ("König Rasulov" mit Roderick Bell), spacig-krautige Tracks ("Waiting For Lilou Bram" mit Bram van der Poel), und es gibt zerhackstückt-gedrechselte Blubbersounds wie "Compression Study" von Andrew Pekler.

Die französische Produzentin und Sängerin Tigerlily dagegen sorgt für chansonesken Input ("Dada N° 1"). Gemeinsam mit dem ständig produktiv im Berliner Untergrund rumwurschtelnden Berliner Musiker F. S. Blumm gibt Özdemir sich gegen Ende dann ganz der groovenden Beatmusik hin. Eine Stunde Sound, so vielfältig wie eine unsortierte, aber gut bestückte Plattenkiste.

Ein bisschen trockener norddeutscher Humor klingt dabei auch durch, zum Beispiel in Songtiteln wie "Der Herr Doktor sieht das nicht gerne" (mit Computerspielsound) und "Der Mann, der nicht voll am Start war" (hammondinfiziertes Easy Listening). Sogar über die Liebe vermag Herr Özdemir klug zu komponieren: Ein elegischer Schmachtfetzensong mit Streichern heißt "Wann ruft sie mich an?" - und sein Alter Ego heißt in dem Song Jeff Özdemir's Heart Repair. Da sag noch einer, ein Herz könne man nicht reparieren." (Taz)
