Clowns (AUS) / As We Go (D)


Hardcore Punk / Punkrock

In 2015 Clowns have unsolicitedly carved their name into the walls of the Australian punk rock hall of fame. The success of their most recent full length Bad Blood has seen them smash sold out shows and festivals nation wide, appear at the 2015 SxSW festival, become the first ever Australian act to (dis)grace the prestigious Riot Fest line up in Chicago and achieve high rotation on national radio stations and bedroom record players alike.

Combining a vicious base layer of punishing punk rock combined with influences that range from 77’ punk, to underground Australian rock, as well as thrash, doom, noise and powerpop all loaded with chaos, energy and fun. Clowns really know no boundaries in regards to leaving punters stoked that they left their couches and came out to see them at a show.

With two full length LP’s under their belt including 2013’s “I’m Not Right” which ranked in at number 5 of national radio’s ”Short Fast Loud’ top 40 releases of 2013, as well as the already highly acclaimed follow up LP ”Bad Blood” released in early 2015, Clowns are heavily equipped with the right credentials to back up their impressive live show. Both of these records are out on highly esteemed Australian label “Poison City Records”, which the band have a strong and proud working relationship with, as well as having North American distribution through “No Idea Records” in USA.

With over 300 shows since the bands inception, shedding the lifeblood of Melbourne hardcore punk across South-East Asia, China, New Zealand, Australia and just recently USA; not to mention appearances at SXSW in Texas, MIDI Festival in China and many wild Australian East Coast shows, it’s safe to say that Clowns have a strong thirst for being on the road.

 

AS WE GO sind ein Punkrock-Fünfer aus Köln. Inspiriert von guter Musik und noch besseren Freunden, vereinen Björn, Maurice, Andrew, Thomas und Thomas jahrzehntelange Band-Erfahrung, hunderte Live-Shows und eine Menge Enthusiasmus in ihrem Sound. Und genau das hört man in jeder Se- kunde.

Irgendwo zwischen rotzigen Attacken à la HOT WATER MUSIC oder THE FLATLINERS findet sich immer auch der ein oder andere Moment Pop. Wäh- rend der Gesang dir mit voller Wucht ins Gesicht springt, nimmt dich die Me- lodie der Gitarre an die Hand und zeigt dir, warum es genau in diesem Mo- ment keinen schöneren Platz auf diesem Planeten gibt.

Nach ihrer DIY-EP “Alright For Now“ (2014) haben sich die Jungs mit Produ- zent Uwe Sabirowsky (BEATSTEAKS, BOYSETSFIRE, DONOTS, KEITH CA- PUTO, JUPITER JONES) zusammengetan, um mit “Stumble & Stand“ ihren ersten Langspieler einzuspielen. Das Album wurde in den Minirock Music Stu- dios aufgenommen, produziert und gemastert. Herausgekommen sind elf Songs, die AS WE GO aus der Seele sprechen und zeigen, dass Punkrock auch 2016 noch lange nicht zu Ende gespielt ist!

Broken Teeth (UK) / Second Sight (D)


Hardcore

 

Manchester 2007, in a scene plagued by throwaway metalcore acts, hardcore bands more concerned about their aesthetics and chasing management deals than writing a good song, BROKEN TEETH HC was born.

 

Setting out to do a band more in touch with the frustration and aggression that people deal with in everyday life, something more real and relatable to the three founding members of what would become a force to be reckoned with in the worldwide hardcore scene.

 

After years of hard work for the band, playing every show they were offered up and down the country and heading to mainland Europe for tours/weekenders/festivals whenever the opportunity presented itself, it soon paid off and they were soon being hand-picked by overseas acts such as TERROR, SICK OF IT ALL and TRAPPED UNDER ICE (to name but a few) as touring partners and the name BROKEN TEETH HC was making its stamp on the hardcore scene more and more with each tour.

 

Between such a hectic gigging schedule came the time to write and release three more 7” EPs, 2009's »Self-Titled« (Power Negi), 2010's »The Seeker« (Purgatory Records), 2012's »Aint No Rest For The Wicked« (Purgatory Records) as well as 2014's split 7” with THE MONGOLOIDS (Neutral Words Records/6131 Records) from New Jersey, USA, giving them the exposure to the American scene that might not have heard the name BROKEN TEETH HC before.

 

 

Following 2015's spot on the Persistence Tour in January, an appearance at United Blood Festival in Richmond, USA in March and (probably the bands biggest show to date) Hellfest in France in the summer, they locked themselves away to finally get started on a long awaited LP. After years of members changes the three founding members had finally found a concrete line-up in old friends from the scene Nial (bass) and Matt (guitar) and were finally ready to begin work on »At Peace Amongst Chaos«.

Along with producer Nick Jett (TERROR) they set out to lay down ten tracks of pure aggression and hatred towards modern society.

With Nuclear Blast Records at the helm of putting out this destroyer of a record, the stage is set for BROKEN TEETH HC to take their heavyweight sound to a whole new level.

They only go from strength to strength so make sure to catch them in 2016 and check out »At Peace Amongst Chaos«.

 

Second Sight ist Hardcore aus Dortmund!

Total Chaos (USA)


Punkrock

Over 27 years ago (Sept.-Oct. 1989) in Pomona Valley, CA was the birth of Total Chaos. Created out of the desperate need to save a dying genre of punk rock- during a time that the market was saturated with a more commercial new style. Along the side of a dedicated few other bands who believed in the dying genre and all that it represented- to them it was not only music- but a forum- to convey important political and social views.

 

After 27 years Total Chaos has grown as a band and has seen many come and go- but they have always kept their original ideals of what their genre of music is all about- which hasn’t been proven to be easy- during a time of mirages and deceit. Regardless of what you believe, whether you are pop punk, street punk, hardcore, straight edge, political punk, goth punk, skate punk, crust punk, metal punk, straight punk rock (the list goes on and on)- Total Chaos style of music can unify them all- bringing them back to one scene and that is PUNK ROCK!

 

Einlass: 20h; Beginn: 21.30h, Eintritt: 8€

The Schogettes (D)


60s Soul

 

The Schogettes sind eine almost-all-female-Formation aus Mannheim, die sich "MA-town from the Bottom of our dirty souls" auf die Fahnen geschrieben hat. Der Name ist Programm: bittersüß wie Schokolade ist ihre Musik, ihre Themen sind Inbrunst und Energie, mit denen sie ihr Publikum direkt in den Bauch treffen und ihre Herzen schmelzen lassen wie eine Schogette in der Sonne. Sie lassen sich von den Soul-Größen und den Girl-Groups der frühen 60er Jahre inspirieren (z.B. Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Ray Charles, The Shirelles, Edwin Starr, The Marvelettes, The Exciters, Marlena Shaw, Melba Moore u.a.). Sie meinen das ernst was sie singen. Ihre eigenen Stücke passen ins Set, ohne zu versuchen, den Stil von damals blind zu imitieren. Nebenbei gibt’s immer ein paar Sprüche und Ansagen, die zeigen, wie das Leben dich formt wenn du in MA-town in einer Garage geboren wurdest. Und wenn du nichts hattest, um dich nachts zuzudecken, außer ein paar rostigen Kotflügeln… "The Queens of Premium Soul" vollenden dabei auch das Projekt ihrer Schwestern von damals. Während diese von Plattenfirmen auf den Schulhöfen rekrutiert wurden, weil sie "jung und formbar" waren, wurden auf den Plattenhüllen von damals meist eher der Sound oder der Produzent gerühmt, als die Arbeit der Sängerinnen oder der Band. Die Schogettes machen 50 Jahre danach ihr selbstbestimmtes eigenes Ding. Den Bandmitgliedern merkt man an, wie viel Spaß es ihnen macht, gemeinsam auf der Bühne zu stehen. Sie müssen diese Musik machen. Sie reißen ihr Publikum mit ihrem Groove und ihrer Leidenschaft mit. Der vielstimmige Gesang steht dabei im Mittelpunkt, fett wird das ganze durch einen amtlichen Bläsersatz. Nach vorne getrieben wird das Ganze durch eine rastlose Rhythmus-Section. Die Schogettes machen das einzige Bauchweh, das man unbedingt bald wieder kriegen möchte...


Einlass: 20h; Beginn: 21.30h, Eintritt: 8€
