GNOD (10th Anniversary Show) + Halbzeug

GNOD (Britain)
As we embark on a new year more characterised by fear and uncertainty than hope and optimism, a chronic shortage of dissent can be detected in the artistic community amidst a harrowing socio-political climate. Yet the Salford-based collective Gnod have wasted little time in kicking against the doom and disquiet with everything at their disposal.
“It seems like we are heading towards even more unsettling times in the near future than we are in at present.” reckons Chris Haslam of Gnod. “2016 is just the beginning of what I see as the establishment’s systematic destruction of liberalism and equality as a reaction to the general public’s loss of faith in their system”
Charged by this outlook, Gnod’s new album, ‘ Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine’ represents a hitherto uncharted level of antagonism and adversarial force for the band – an artistic statement as righteous, fervent and direct as its title. which far from being an echo of an anarcho spirit of yore, denotes a record firmly entrenched in the psychic terrain of 2017.
“On the surface it could almost seem like there’s no political art movement out there to oppose what’s happening, but there is – we know there is” adds the band’s Paddy Shine. “Maybe that movement is struggling to find its voice as a cohesive whole right now but that will change. It has to change.”
Fuelled by their militant drive and unyielding ardour, ‘Just Say No…’ refracts Gnod’s harsh and repetitive riff-driven rancour through a psychotropic haze of dubbed-out abstraction, with Paddy’s incendiary vocal delivery to the fore. ,‘Just Say No… sounds like a record only Gnod could make – a band fiercely independent, never comfortable in one place artistically for any duration of time, always with their co-ordinates set on uncharted territory and the next challenge ahead, and delivering a monument of ire and iconoclasm.

⊙ ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. ⊙
(Japan)
http://acidmothers.com
https://acidmotherstemplethemeltingparaisoufo.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/acidmotherstempleofficial
Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso Underground Freak Out (and subsequent offshoots) is a Japanese psychedelic space rock band, the core of which formed in 1995. The band is led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto and early in their career featured many musicians, but by 2004 the line-up had coalesced with only a few core members and frequent guest musicians.
The band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective.
“In a non-stop stream of thrilling noise, they segue from supercharged stomp-rock, through doomy choral chanting and frazzled go-go, to a thundering melee of atonal freakouts. Then on to a pulsating, echo-drenched disco-rock groove, which morphs into a motorik rhythm too rapid even for the autobahn, works itself into a squalling frenzy, breaks cover as a kind of galloping, syncopated, Underworld-with-rabies affair, and flows into a long, chiming trance number climaxing in a collective instrumental howl.” – David Bennun

⊙ SUNN TRIO ⊙
(Phoenix – Arizona)
https://sunntrio.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/sunntrio
Described as deep spirited, Arabic-music-tinged free jazz-punk and harsh exotica, Sunn Trio’s ever-evolving ensemble digests a number of genres, spitting them back out in creative destruction. Carrying on a long tradition of sun-beaten Phoenix punk, Sunn Trio evokes the sweltering and hallucinatory Arizona desert. Echoes of Sonny Sharrock, John McLaughlin, and Sir Richard Bishop can be heard in Joel Robinson’s fiery blurs of guitar. Imagine the Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 in full force, echoing from behind a curtain of bitter haze. Founded by Robinson in 2010, the ever-changing band has been constantly recording and releasing material, with a recent LP, Fayrus, on Germany’s Unrock Records.
“Wielding Indo-Arabian saz and white lightning six-string shrapnel amidst an alligator snapping turtle’s rhythm section, this trio-quartet-sextet may also sprout horns, flutes, animal skins, or shadow gamelan to faithfully demolish that whiny and predictable listening experience of today’s tepidly lazy, underachieving experimental music scene. Not a ‘safe’ environment.” – Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls
“There’s a woozy, heatstroke feel to the band’s innovative blend of surf rock, free jazz, mystical drone, and world music. Consistently recording and releasing material via self-distributed cassettes, the Trio’s sound mutates in concert, with fantastic flurries of distorted guitars butting up against mantric psychedelic saxophone runs and looping bass.” – Jason Patrick Woodbury

⊙ STEREOCILIA ⊙

Deafkids + Cuntroaches

DEAFKIDS
Neurot Recordings – Brasil

DEAFKIDS’ “Configuração Do Lamento” is an untamed release, happy to juxtapose monolithic drone riffage with frantic polyrhythmic detours, the band citing the syncopated beats of African drums as a major influence. It is a guttural, scorched mutation of psychedelia, that similar intent of frying the listener’s perception, while void of anything approaching earthy wistfulness, wholly fluid in nature, paying no heed to any musical expectations other than the creators own internal logic. A bombardment of clanging percussion sits below relentless guitar battering, and a whole host of electronic tamperings, effects which in practice manage to further confound the proceedings. Using the term psychedelic in the absolute loosest sense is apt, as the band claims that “non-genre genres” are a chief source of inspiration, referencing anything from their own background in punk, right the way through to spiritual jazz, practically any form which allows the artist to experiment with the utter extremes of musical expression.

Brazil’s DEAFKIDS are one of those bands buoyed by a mystic kind of momentum, a ceaselessness whose source lies in some vital, but unknown spring. Their music is a glorious cacophony, a mixture of pummelling Gnod-esque cataclysms and the traditional sounds of their native Brazil and Latin America; it’s a brutal blend of hardcore punk, metal, experimental noise, and a pumping rhythmic vein with its roots in African and Indian polyrhythm. – THE QUIETUS

The act of venturing away from genre restrictions is by no means guaranteed to bring out the best in a hardcore band, but when it comes off it can be exhilarating. The second album by Brazilian trio DEAFKIDS is a fine example of expanded horizons done right. – WIRE

CUNTROACHES
Instrument Of Disciplines / Teratology Sound & Visions – Berlin
Most exciting band from Berlin in a long time! Noisy, blown-to-pieces, nasty hardcore with an eerie resemblance to lo-fi death metal monstrosities such as Necrovore or Nuclear Death, without actually embracing metal as a musical form. It’s just the sheer evil and chaos surging from the speakers and literally forcing your face in a pool of rubbish and blood. With only two tapes out and a 7“ coming up next, this merry bunch will torment your existence for a long time still.

Julie’s Haircut + Mamuthones

Urban Spree & el borracho berlin gigs Present:
06.03.2018
Rocket Recordings Label Mates with:
Julie’s Haircut + Mamuthones


Einlass: 19:00 I Beginn: 20:00
10,00€

>> JULIE´S HAIRCUT (IT – Rocket Recordings)
Active since the late nineties, Julie’s Haircut is a band devoted to spacey, hypnotic sounds. The band’s music has evolved in time from the garage-rock soulful energy of their debut towards more experimental grounds, focusing on improv and sound research, without losing touch with the groove and melody that characterized their music since day one. They have been making music with Damo Suzuki, Sonic Boom, Philip Corner, Valerio Cosi and more. Their new album “Invocation And Ritual Dance Of My Demon Twin” is released 17 february 2017 by Rocket Recordings.

>> MAMUTHONES (IT – Rocket Recordings)
Mamuthones may have started as solo project of Alessio Gastaldello, founder and ex drummer of Jennifer Gentle (Italy’s psych pop mavericks signed to Sub Pop Records) but soon turned into something like a real band.

After leaving Jennifer Gentle in 2007, Alessio switched from drums to air-organ and voice to create his own kind of deep psychedelia. A ritual, esoteric atmosphere soaked his first two albums – The First Born (a collaborative effort with Fabio Orsi) and Sator, his proper first solo LP. To support these releases, Alessio was joined on stage by Marco Fasolo (Jennifer Gentle’s mastermind) on guitar and seasoned drummer Maurizio Boldrin – an almost 70-year old musician who has played since the early Sixties in countless beat and prog groups including Pino Donaggio’s band (the same Pino Donaggio who wrote You don’t have to say you love me and soundtracked multiple Brian De Palma, Nicholas Roeg and Joe Dante movies).

After a handful of shows, the trio released in 2011 a self-titled album for Italian label Boring Machines. The band were heralded as prime movers of the so-called Italian Occult Psychedelia scene and the album itself got rave reviews on most music magazines and websites, even getting a 4-star review in The Times. Around the same time, Mamuthones opened the Italian tour of Hallogallo (the project comprising Neu! leader Michael Rother and Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley) and played their first London shows.

When Marco Fasolo went back to his Jennifer Gentle duties, Alessio recruited Matteo Polato (guitar) and Francesco Lovison (synth), both previously with Italian band Slumberwood. Alessio started immediately working on new material and the results were released in early 2015 as a 4-track side of a split album for the Collisions series by British label Rocket Recordings (Goat, Gnod, Josefin Ohrn, Julie’s Haircut, Teeth of the Sea, etc). The EP signaled a dramatic change in their sound, now a concoction of the dark alchemy of early Can, the sci-fi swagger of Chrome and the magpie spirit of Eno and Byrne’s My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts.
Soon after the release, Maurizio Boldrin split amicably and was replaced by Andrea Davì, a young drummer with a keen interest in jazz and Afrobeat. In September 2015 Mamuthones guested at the Liverpool Psychedelic Festival, while Rocket Recordings was releasing a new 12” limited edition titled Symphony For The Devil, featuring a kosmische-disco inflected cover of the Rolling Stones classic and an unreleased song.
With the new line-up alive and kicking, Mamuthones started working on a new album that will be released again by Rocket Recordings on February 23 2018 under the title Fear On The Corner.
