EXEK are returning to Europe and the UK in May/June 2024! The Australian post-punk outfit will be promoting their latest record ‘The Map and the Territory’ released October 2023 on Foreign Records. The other reason for the tour is that the band is now ten years old. In that time, EXEK have released six albums, and have toured Japan, the USA, and Europe. Their sound is difficult to pigeon hole due to a wide variety of influences (punk, trip-hop, RnB, dub, kraut, avant-garde), but the general consensus is something in the lineage of The Fall, Happy Mondays, ESG, and PIL. 

For the band, the highlights are not fame and fortune (well aware of their slim odds), but more so finding recognition amongst the artists they admire and are influenced by. Whether it's supporting Liars and Anika, or being added to playlists by late greats like Mark Stewart and Andrew Weatherall. Come find them playing a town near you!

Post-punk/no wave oddity Geo (KJ Braams (bass) Jorne Visser (vocals/guitar), Gijs Deddens (drums) and Ype Zijlstra (keys, electronics) are like a sentient slot machine: whatever seems happenstance is actually by design, and the more mismatched the moving parts appear, the more their music starts to make sense. Since the Groningen quartet’s inception in 2019, they have built a framework of skeletal agit-funk, cartoonish chromatics and neoteric art punk vignettes – sketching negative spaces where chaos and cacophony can sound perplexingly catchy. After releasing their esteemed EP in 2021, the band has entered its next creative chapter.

Out of Body – Geo’s long-awaited debut album – is an oblong snow globe utopia where dancing with two left feet is an actual custom. Out on Erste Theke Tontraeger on April 26, 2024 – this collection of songs constitutes material Geo have been writing and performing when they first entered the circuit. These jitterbug, birdbrained post-punk spiels are in the spirit of gung-ho deconstructionists like The Contortionists, The Fall and Gang of Four. On Out of Body the band play emotions out against each other like some kind of absurdist Punch and Judy show.

Wonk Unit (DIY Punk from UK) + The Black Dogs (Punkrock from Berlin/Argentina)
Tickets

WONK UNIT ist eine der vielseitigsten und abwechslungsreichsten Bands, die London im Moment zu bieten hat. 2005 wurden sie von Alex nach Auflösung der Punkband The Flying Medallions ins Leben gerufen.
Punk in England war so tot und langweilig zu der Zeit. Doch mit dem zufälligen Aufeinandertreffen von Alex und zwei sehr talentierten Musikern, Drummer Mez Clough und Gitarrist Gavin Kinch, deren Art zu spielen Alex Songs plötzlich überfrisch erklingen ließen, gab es eine neue Punkrockhoffnung.
Eine in Europa einzigartige Band mit eigenem Sound, eigenem Humor, eigenem Festival und tief verwurzeltem DIY Background. Alex Brindle Johnson ist dabei als Lead Singer, Poet, Skater, Stage Performer und kreativer Motor das Herz der Band, von der nicht wenige behaupten, dass es das derzeit Spannendste sei, was es auf Europas Punkrockbühnen zu sehen gibt.

»Wombo is an American three-piece art-rock indie band from Louisville, Kentucky. The band consists of members Sydney Chadwick (bass guitar, vocals), Cameron Lowe (guitar), and Joel Taylor (drums). Wombo was formed in 2016 by lead singer and bassist Sydney Chadwick and guitarist Cameron Lowe. Chadwick and Lowe had previously been members of a punk-pop band, The Debauchees. Once the band dissolved, Chadwick and Lowe recruited drummer Joel Taylor and made their live debut as Wombo in August 2016. 

After an LP and an album they signed to FIRE TALK Records in 2021 and have since released their EP Keesh Mountain and the album FAIRY DUST, which was called "a fairytale written on a not-so-great acid trip" (PASTE Magazine), and UPROXXX said that Wombo "created their own post-punk fairy tale..." and praised the band's "expertly executed art-rock sound that is complete with droning guitars, frenetic chords, and angular melodies."

In 2023 the band released their highly-praised EP SLAB, toured with bands like Bully and Cherry Glazerr. In September 2024 they'll be coming to Berlin for the first time.«

O. – the London-based duo of baritone saxophonist Joe Henwood and drummer Tash Keary – return with details of their highly anticipated debut album “WeirdOs” and a colossal new single titled “Green Shirt”.

The album is due out 21st June via Speedy Wunderground. Honing their fearless sound through a residency at Brixton’s iconic venue The Windmill, as well as on support slots across the UK and Europe with fellow heavyweights black midi and Gilla Band, O. have now distilled their unique live energy into their debut album, “WeirdOs”.

Featuring production from Dan Carey, WeirdOs is Tash and Joe at their most raucous and free. Across 10 tracks of high-octane instrumentals recorded live to tape, the duo encompass everything from cathartic dancefloor drops, to junglist breakbeats, intricate jazz lines, and sludgy, menacing doom metal.

Coming hot on the heels of last November’s debut EP “SLICE” – which won enthusiastic support from DIY, Dork, NME, Louder, and Rough Trade – the new single “Green Shirt” sees the band expanding on their ever evolving, epiphanic sound combining thundering blast beats with labyrinthine sax.

The band describe the single as “a short rock/metal rinse out. To match the distorted amp sounds coming from Joe, we put Tash's drums through distorted guitar amps on this one. It's named after Tash's favourite green flannel shirt, that was lost several times and then eaten by a dog.”
