Monday, October 4, 2010 Floating di Morel “Said My Say” ( play loud! )   Like a classy Suicide (the band, not the act of desperation) these cats present minimal, chilling music, but wear ties and sweep the warehouse before inviting you over for a bizarre ultra-underground concert.
Monday, October 4, 2010 Doc Schoko “schlecht dran/gut drauf” ( Play Loud !) Opening with a killer psychobilly number, made more psycho but the guttural, Teutonic blurtings (Germany, your language sounds harsh and ominous to us no matter what you are saying….sorry!) this becomes one of the most diverse, all over the board rock  ‘n’ roll albums I’ve heard in a while, with punk, cowboy music, lo fi psychedelia, spoken  word soundscape stuff and more!  And despite not knowing German, I’m pretty sure the phrase “Oktopus Im Pentagramm” is fucked up!

Lohn für eine der besten je gedrehten Musikdokumentationen namens „The Transatlantic Feedback“ über die Sixties-Beat-Legende Monks, einer wilden Band in Mönchskutten.  „Avant-Garde In The Meadows“ (Play Loud!) ist komplett anders konzipiert. Thema ist das Festival “Klangbad” in Scheer, einem verschlafenen Städtchen an der Donau. Jedes Jahr treffen sich dort Bands aus den Genres Experimental, Elektro oder Avantgarde.
