Sonntag, 02.04.2017: Sonic Avenues + Ringo Starwars

Sonic Avenues Montreal, CAN

Their fourth album Disconnector sees the band drawing its drive, dynamics and lyrical content from the desire of getting as far away possible from a formula of creative comfort. The approach resulted in an array of songs featuring the band playing with new instrumentation, different tempos and a variety of song structures. Sonic Avenues’ conscious effort to offer abrupt contrasts along with new textures has them further developing their own dynamics, turning dark and quiet into fast, noisy, fuzzed out sing-alongs.

Musically, a lot of the inspiration around the songwriting revolved around bands like Adrian Borland’s The Sound, Gary Numan, DEVO and A Flock Of Seagulls just to name a few.

Lyrically, Disconnector continues to build on the thoughtful vibe largely established on their last LP (2014’s well received Mistakes). Their new work, which favors an approach of select contexts subjugated by phonetic writing, explores themes of future and destiny, human potential and its annihilation, self-control, abandon, etc.

In terms of sheer energy, the band’s punk roots are still in evidence. Given the subsequent development in lyrical and musical maturity, though, if you didn’t know what to listen for, this could almost be a different band from the one that released their s/t debut LP back in 2009.

Donnerstag, 06.04.2017: Toys That Kill + Irish Handcuffs

Toys That Kill San Pedro, USA

“Where the punk rock landscape is littered with generic, fashion-conscious pap, Toys That Kill are everything that’s good about punk rock: distinctive, aggressive, energetic, melodic, fun and smart.”

Hervorgegangen ist die Band aus San Pedro, Kalifornien aus den unglaublichen F.Y.P – deren rotzig-juveniler Hardcore entwickelte sich mit der Zeit zu etwas mehr und mehr Melodischem, die Texte bekamen eine seltsam dadaistisch-sarkastische Note und es war an der Zeit, etwas Neues zu beginnen.

Und so sind seit zwölf Jahren nun Toys That Kill Garanten für fulminante Live-Shows und grandiose Songs: hymnisch-euphorischer Punkrock mit noisig-schrägem Pop-Appeal, den TTK-typischen Akkordwechseln und perfekt ausgeklügelten Gitarrenarrangements. Dazu die unverwechselbaren Stimmen von Todd Congelliere und Sean Cole und die bissig bis nihilistischen Texte, manchmal mehr gefaucht als gesungen.

Das aktuelle Album “Sentimental Ward” erschien letztes Jahr auf dem bandeigenen Label Recess Records (u.a. Japanther, Pinhead Gunpowder, I Spy…).

Irish Handcuffs Regensburg

Since late 2011, IRISH HANDCUFFS from Regensburg, southern Germany, have been dedicated to two things: playing catchy as hell punk rock and avoiding serious jobs and careers despite an average age of 33,25 years. During the first two years they released an ep and two split-singles and played numerous tours and shows with bands like FACE TO FACE and TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET. In 2014 the band followed that with around 50 shows with the likes of BOYSETSFIRE or NO WEATHER TALKS, as well as recording and releasing their debut record „Hits Close To Home“. The following year started off with support slots for long-time favorites like SWINGIN UTTERS or LAGWAGON and saw IRISH HANDCUFFS perform in nine different countries, including a two-week tour of the UK and short tour of the US East Coast and Florida, ending at the annual punk rock party that is THE FEST in Gainesville. So what does 2016 have in store? The band is currently working on full length number two, the first tours and weekenders are booked and the plan is to play as many shows as possible, without drifting into absolute poverty.

„Hits Close To Home“ was met with overall great reviews, here are some examples…

„Songs like the opener and Pacemaker „should’ve run“ or the sensitive „chasing ghosts, killing time“ really hit the nail on the head! […] so it’s fitting, that the finishing touches were made at the Blasting Room studios by Jason Livermore.“ (Ox Fanzine)

„That’s how simple a good song can be. Or a great record […] that also a Billie Joe Armstrong would’ve been proud of. “ (.heartcooksbrain)

„The current German punk scene is doing a lot of things right. Irish Handcuffs sit at the top of this scene, cementing their place with their first full length album. […] Irish Handcuffs have always had a good sense of letting their influences run through their sounds without ever sounding like a carbon copy of their heroes, and Hits Close To Home gets as close to perfecting that balance as possible.“ (DyingScene.com)

Montag, 17.04.2017: Heavy Heart + !Attention! + Todeskommando Atomsturm

Heavy Heart Nantes
“Fantastic punkrock band from Nantes, France with former members of La Rupture, One Thousand Direction and Homesick. Their No Idea style of punkrock has a serious taste of vitamin C and coffee to it, giving you strengh to fight against the violence of this frustrating world. Each one of their romantic and jaded songs take you in their arms like your best friend would. Good attitude, open handed and positive energy.”

!Attention! Toronto
is a five-piece pop-punk band from Toronto, Canada. Best bros from the east coast and southern Ontario joined to rekindle their love for fast beats, catchy power chords, and voracious snacking.”

Todeskommando Atomsturm Munich
“Todeskommando Atomsturm aus München machen seit 2008 zusammen Musik. Das Bandkonzept basiert auf der gemeinsamen Liebe zu turbulenten Wasserrutschen, konspirativen Gangaktivitäten und diesem Punk-Ding. die Fachpresse lässt verlauten, die band spiele modernen, an manchen stellen fast schon hymnisch anmutenden Punkrock mit famosem Gespühr für eingängige Melodien, ordentlich Pfeffer im Arsch und einem gediegenen, formvollendet angepissten Rotzgesang.”

MILA MASU

Die Münchner Electronic-Punk-Rock-Band “Mila Masu” besteht aus vier Musikern, denen Jazz, Rockabilly und Konzertgitarre einfach nicht laut genug waren.

Punk-Röhre und Frontfrau der Band Mila redet Klartext und nimmt kein Blatt vor den Mund. Mit frechen Texten, rasanten Riffs und treibenden Electronics geben die Vier neue Töne vor. Seit der Bandgründung 2011 bis heute hat sich einiges getan. So haben sich Leo 2013 und Tobi 2016 den beiden Gründungsmitgliedern A.K. und Mila angeschlossen und das Puzzle somit wieder komplett gemacht.
