It is with great treasure and delight to present the most inspiring modern musician of our time, Charlie Megira and his newest project, The Bet She’an Valley Hillbillies, to the stage of Urban Spree.

Charlie’s mix of lo-fi appalachian rock’n’roll (Feathers/Askins), Oscar Wilde vocals (if he was a charming mumbler….), baroque orchestration (theme and vibration-variation) and minimal 80s aesthetic (less is more, unless its an encore…) is a unique and special occasion wherever you are from, and Berlin is lucky to have him.

His previous record with the mighty MODERN DANCE CLUB is now on its 4th pressing on Greg Ashley’s Guitars and Bongos Records.

Supporting The Bet She’an Valley Hillbillies is another new project:

JIMMY TRASH and BIG DADDY MUGGLESTONE

Jimmy Trash (Trashfest/Gunpowder Temple of Heaven/Jimmy Trash Orchestra) and Big Daddy Mugglestone (Assdroids/Sacred Travellers/Cheap Paper Toys) play songs inspired by ancient Persian poets, Voodoo rhythms, Zoroastrian Creed and Hermetic Philosophy. Combining cyclical music and ritual with the chanting of sacred texts, they engage the audience in a rhythmic orgy of fear and fortune, death the release.

AND for the afterparty, the panafrican psych funk groove sounds of the Nigerian/Australian freundschaft of SPECIAL NO.1 DJ TEAM!

BANDS:
Freak de l’Afrique (Berlin/ Man Recordings)
Conjunto Papa Upa (Venezuela/Amsterdam, Names You Can Trust)
Scúru Fitchádu (Cabo Verde/Lisbon)
Mfa Kera and Mike Russell’s Black Heritage (Madagascar/USA/Berlin)

DJS:

Sigourney Skywalker (Berlin)
Dj Andi Stetcher aka Schladi Schladez (Berlin)
Mohair Sam (Thessaloniki)
Mayo-Ra (Spaghetti Western)
Send the Friend (Thessaloniki)
NESTA (PT)
Jimmy Trash (AUS)

Freak de l’Afrique is a Berlin based collective of Djs, Mcs and dancers who share a passion for modern African Club sounds. They are an energy EXPLOSION and full of legendary creatives and have worked alongside Goethe Institute and Redbull to be able to tour East Africa and Europe and spread their floor burning vibes.

Conjunto Papa Upa is the latest band by “The Hardest Working Man in Tropical Music” Alex Figueira (Fumaça Preta, Music With Soul, VintageVoudou), alongside percussion meister Gerardo Rosales. Papa Upa is a latin rhythm machine, dipping into the grooviest parts of Venezuelan Afro, Salsa and Carribean heritage and then wrung through the psychedelic and dj culture processor you can expect from a Names You Can Trust band.

Scúru Fitchádu
Mixing anti-colonial punk politics, live and programmed drums and exceptional stage shows with the ancient rhythms of funana, the outlawed and ancient music from Cabo Verde, Scuru Fitchadu feels like Death Grips if they grew up inthe island pennisula…..It’s their first gig in Berlin and we are honoured to host them.

Mfa Kera with Mike Russell and Black Heritage
Some years ago I was digging in Amsterdam and found an amazing LP with an astonishing face of the artist on the front cover. It was the amazing Mfa Kera, who I interpreted to be something like a Madagascan answer to Nina Hagen…. and it quickly became my favourite new wave album of all time. A little investigation found she was living in Berlin, and still going very strong with many musical and artistic projects. I’ll post more of this story later but for now, I am BURSTING to present to our Trashfest audience, MFA KERA will be performing with a full afrobeat band!!!

Conjunto Vaya Nacho This Band is based on the affection of Colombian Vallenato Music. Rocking an accordeon, bass, 1973 drum machine and guest singers, we are very happy to have these locals join us.

j.do Rio aka João Xavi
I have a perverse pleasure in the wild in-yo-face electric boogaloo of 80s-90s Baille Funk and Miami Bass, so I personally invited specialist J.do Rio aka João Xavi of Batuque Lowfi. He has made a mix just for us, listen and wig out and understand how fun this will be in the Urban Spree basement on the night of Trashfest !!!

Dj Anacaona is also a Venezuelan émigré to Berlin’s tropical music scene with connections to the La Regla Party here. After being in all of the rebellious music scenes of vibrant Caracas; Hardcore, Reggae, Hip Hop – she brings the same attitude to her heavy bomb salsa mixes which you have to hear to believe.

Dj Andi Stetcher (Schladi Schladez)
Andi Stecher is an austrian born and berlin based drummer and electronic musicia and DJ Andi Stechers music is not drawn to one specific genre. He refers to a variety of styles of music in his pieces and therefore forms a very unique hybrid sound. His music is often interspersed with polyrhythmic elements, field recordings, coupled with drones, subbass, analog electronics and electroacoustic elements.

We are deeply indebted to Musicboard Berlin for helping us to set up this incredible event, as well as our longterm partners Urban Spree.

“WHY I LOVE THESE BANDS” – a personal reflection on why I think all these bands are awesome, by Jimmy Trash.

CHUCKAMUCK

Friends for my entire Berlin life, I’ve seen this band evolve into maturity, putting together smarmy and creative songwriting with pure rock and roll abandon and spirit. One of the few modern German garage groups who have proven to have popularity outside of the country while still singing in German, and have excelled themselves with their latest record and a host of killer film clips.

LIQUOR STORE

Ever since I was a teenager, I loved the DICTATORS. And, ever since I was 22, I loved New Jersey’s HOME BLITZ. Well, this is a New Jersey band that sounds like the Dictators with a bit of hippy psych invested in the sound that Manitoba probably would have hated, plus the singer was in HOME BLITZ, and I’m gonna have to show him my HOMEBLITZ tattoo which is pretty embarrassing. SUPER GOOD ROCK AND ROLL.

KRISTY AND THE KRAKS

OH MY GOD! DREAM BAND! These two Vienna girls sound like a doowop version of The Shaggs, with lotsa fuzz and singalong fun. I’ve been to Vienna, and the girls have to be SLY there, and that’s the only reason I have for their AMAZING sound. CHECK IT.

GO!ZILLA

These Italians jumped on the bandwagon as a late inclusion, but Italian psych garage rockers have been some of my best drinking buddies in the past and their shit seems really tight, I’d say they fit the family perfectly….

ORCHESTRA HIT

Wildcard entry, supercute videogame music, allstar members of Batalj, ZHOD, PISS, Grinni and the Grinsters.

Orsten Groom’s “CHROME DINETTE” series to be exhibited at Urban Spree

For their last exhibition of the year, Urban Spree Galerie invites the French painter Orsten Groom to exhibit in Berlin his new incendiary series “CHROME DINETTE”. The solo show, his first exhibition in Germany, will open on Friday, October 23rd, 2020.

While being a radically independent artist, Orsten Groom has established himself in a few years as a key player in the young French painting scene, oscillating between alternative circles and museum institutions.

His first retrospective was presented this year at the ACMCM contemporary art centre in Perpignan (France) – at only 37 years old.

The Berlin exhibition brings together over 30 works, presented in two sections:

– the Large Ensemble of 17 paintings “CHROME DINETTE” (accompanied by its proverbial Divan), a danse macabre summoning Sigmund Freud, Moses and sick poodles – under the aegis of Frank Zappa;

– A retrospective selection of Orsten Groom’s emblematic large formats, a genuine «subconscious» journey with Parietal Sarcophagus allures. 

Orsten Groom’s painting is presented as “Post-Historical Cave Art”.

The famous German artist Jonathan Meese said about him: “Orsten Groom comes from the caves and the Middle Ages and keeps history alive in today’s art. He comes from the future“.

Apocalyptic Frescoes, saturated with Creatures drawn from the Memory Styx by Demented Talmudic Investigations, Carnivalesque Recapitulation of History from the Flow of Origins and Art History – His Painting roars on Large Canvases populated with Figures entangled by Mythological and Grotesque Archetypes, Danses Macabres gleaned by a Language Detective, an Amnesiac Epileptic Archaeologist. Its Material is Dense, Volcanic, inhabited like the ancient Livers of a Divinatory Ritual.

«This turmoil is similar to the one I feel in the Grottos of Lascaux or Chauvet, in front of El Greco or Picasso paintings, or, in the 20th century, facing the essential work of Gérard Gasiorowski», writes Olivier Kaeppelin, former Director of the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence and curator of his recent Parisian Exhibition POMPEII MASTURBATOR.

Orsten Groom experienced in 2002 an aneurysm that left him amnesic and epileptic. He graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2009 and Le Fresnoy in 2011. He is the recipient of several awards: Prix l’art est vivant (2019), Prix de Peinture de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts (2016) and Prix de Peinture Antoine Marin (2015). The reputed paint manufacturer Marin manufactures a colour to his name, the “Pink Groom”.

He is also a musician, author of collections of English cubist poems, filmmaker (2011 Jury Prize for his film BOBOK at the festival Côté-Court) and since 2012 author of the video cycle Les Ballets Russes.

He has collaborated with curators and authors Olivier Kaeppelin and Paul Ardenne, the filmmaker Guy Maddin, the translator and poet André Markowicz, as well as the writer Boris Wolowiec.

ORSTEN GROOM: “MÂÂT” (NOCTURNE) – 210 X 140 CM – OIL ON CANVAS – GXXI

The Opening of the exhibition will be accompanied by a concert by the POODLE MHUND ARKESTRA, formed for the occasion by Orsten Groom, the Magnificent Jimmy Trash & Big Daddy Mugglestone.

Ich bin der Dreck unter deinen Walzen / Ich bin dein geheimer Schmutz Und verlorenes Metallgeld / Ich bin deine Ritze und Schlitze / Ich bin der Autor aller Felgen Und Damast Paspeln / Ich bin Eier aller Arten / Ich bin alle Tage und Nächte / Ich bin der Chrome Dinette / Und du bist mein Sofa. – Frank Zappa

CHROME DINETTE is Burning Divan, Hypnotic Sphinx and Sick Tongue of the Unpronounceable God.

Orsten Groom: Chrome Dinette

From October 23rd to January 23rd 2021, Urban Spree Galerie is pleased to offer the painter Orsten Groom his first solo exhibition in Germany, “CHROME DINETTE”.

 

As a radically independent and self-managed artist, Orsten Groom has established himself in a few years as a key player in the young French painting scene, between alternative circles and museum institutions.

His first retrospective was presented this year at the ACMCM contemporary art centre in Perpignan (France) – at only 37 years old.

The Berlin exhibition brings together over thirty works, presented in two sections:

– the Large Ensemble of 17 paintings “CHROME DINETTE” (accompanied by its proverbial Divan), a crazed round about the links binding Sigmund Freud and Moses through Ancient Egypt & Sick Poodles – all under the aegis of Frank Zappa;

– A vast Recapitulative Selection of Orsten Groom’s emblematic large formats, a genuine «subconscious» journey with Parietal Sarcophagus allures. 

 

ORSTEN GROOM (CHROME DINETTE): “YAHVOLCANISMUS” – (sketch)

Orsten Groom’s painting is presented as “Post-Historical Cave Art”.

The famous German artist Jonathan Meese said about him: “Orsten Groom comes from the caves and the Middle Ages and keeps history alive in today’s art. He comes from the future“.

ORSTEN GROOM: “MÂÂT” (Nocturne) – 210 x 140 cm – Oil on Canvas – GXXI

Implanted in the heart of Berlin, the Urban Spree Galerie has been for more than 8 years an unavoidable reference in urban arts, understood as a manifestation of a post-parietal art, which inscribes graffiti at the heart of its practice, on a large scale.

The opening will be accompanied by a concert by the POODLE MHUND ARKESTRA, formed for the occasion by Orsten Groom, the Magnificent Jimmy Trash & Big Daddy Mugglestone.

Ich bin der Dreck unter deinen Walzen / Ich bin dein geheimer Schmutz Und verlorenes Metallgeld / Ich bin deine Ritze und Schlitze / Ich bin der Autor aller Felgen Und Damast Paspeln / Ich bin Eier aller Arten / Ich bin alle Tage und Nächte / Ich bin der Chrome Dinette / Und du bist mein Sofa. – Frank Zappa
