WEDEKIND „The End Of My Heartbeat“ (Defiance Recs.) LP
Wedekind's mixture of drums, guitars and keyboards (no bass to be found
here!) draws beautifully melancholic pictures. Yes, they are dark but
true beauty often lies in the shadows. But don´t confuse their
dark imagery with negativity. That is one thing Wedekind is not - negative.
Some of their songs have enough pop, they could easily find their way
to a dance floor. Singer/ guitarist Rainer Prokop disagrees, "I
don't think that this is going to happen. We tried to party with Radiohead
records once and it just doesn't work. And I'd feel really uncomfortable
handing out blueprints on how to listen to our music - people should
get out of it what they can." There were bands before that had
that certain dark, yet erotic undertone. Iggy Pop. Television. Joy Division.
The Cure. Wedekind follows in that tradition. Wedekind's distinctive
sound combines elements of Post-Hardcore, Bitpop, New Wave and Emo.
In Wedekind´s native Austria, the band has attained a level of
notoriaty reached by few of their peers, yet they remain unfazed by
thier success and refuse to kiss anyone's ass.

WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY, THE „Our Candidate“ (Gern
Blandsten) 7“ 1,- €
THE WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY is here to remind you that Hitler
was elected, Democracy breeds bad taste and that no matter who wins,
voting makes you complicit in your own chumpdom. Understand? No? All
right then, bring on the marching band. NYC's disturbingly cult-like,
circus-related, Halloween-tent-revival orchestra, THE WORLD/INFERNO
FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY toothily and engagingly explain in 3 carnevalesque,
gypsy-punk, original Broadway production numbers how you-yes, you-can
go from a simple understanding of Zen and the Art of Breaking Everything
in this Room to throwing Just the Best Party.
WOW, THE –come here- (hermit records) MCD 2,- €
This is ex spy vs. spy ! ! ! !
WRITTEN FROM NEGATIVE CDR 3,- €
3 songs outta newcastle
Y / DUMBSTRUCK (Thought Crime) split 7“ 2,- €
U.K. thrashers Dumbstruck are going on the loose again! For what it´s
worth,the band had two members of the allmighty Ripcord in their ranks
at the time this was recorded. Most of the time they still stick to
the classic late 70ies U.K. thrash sound. Compared to their earlier
releases they throw in a massive dose of old swedish HC ala Anticimex
as well.With a way better production than on the 12“,these 3 songs
will mash your brain indeed!Ah,yeah it´s a shame the band broke
up! In case you should consider to flip this record over at all,you
will experience that Berlins´ Y are still going somewhat strong
after 8 years of constant touring and releasing quite a few records
on the way. Don´t ask me what the music sounds like.Uhhmm maybe
a bit like Nasum playing Pink Flamingos covers, maybe like Johnny Cash
on the Burning Spirit wagon...or even better: Imagine Saddam Hussein
doing the vocals for an unfinnished, 5 year old Infest LP! That would
come pretty close perhaps!
YAGE „3-16 october 1874“ (earthwatersky/nova) CD 5,- €
much anticipated debut album from this 5-piece band from cologne germany.
you want energy, emotion or inspiration ? we think, your search is over,
everything is here on this record. take the edge of modern emotional
charged chaotic hardcore, add a good portion of such classic timeless
bands like SHOTMAKER, 400 YEARS or PORTRAITS OF PAST and mix it up with
their very own original and uncomparable sound. how can you go wrong
? it is hard to capture the energy of their live shows on the piece
of plastic, but the result of the recordings is pretty exciting.
YOUTH ENRAGE - Heyoca (625) MCD 6,- €
A follow to their amazing LP/CD of a few years ago. Insanely fast thrash
from Sapporo, crazy time changes, out-of-control vocal styles.....if
you've heard em, you know what I'm talking about. This is even quirkier
than their first release, utilizing unusual chords, and hints of melody
at rapid fire pace. Imagine BORN AGAINST at the speed of NO COMMENT.
The CD also contains two CD-ROM videos of YE live in action.
YUM YUMS; THE „funzone“ 10“ 6,- €
Great poppy punkrock with a heavy hit factor!!
ZEIDUN "La nausee" (b-core) CD 4,- €
ZOLI BAND: LIVE AT THE M.O.D LP 2,- €
The Zoli Band is formed by 3 members of Ignite. The singing part is
for Zoltan Teglas. Kevin Kilkenny plays the guitar and Brett Rasmussen
take care for the bass. The man on the drums is Mark Hine. The Zoli
Band don't brings hardcore, but they produce beautiful alternative music...
And they have obvious influences from great rock bands such as U2, Soundgarden
and The Foo Fighters. On their self-produced full length cd you can
hear a wide spread array of tunes ranging from super-catchy, rocking
ones that get your blood moving to simple beautiful acoustic numbers
often enhanced by layers of violins and cellos. The Zoli Band brings
songs which are written for Ignite, but because they don't fit on a
hardcore album, they started a new group: The Zoli Band...Through this
way they can show their musical ability outside Ignite. And Zoli can
use his wonderful voice on a way, that everyone's heart touch... I'm
sure you would agree with me if you heard this pearl of music... So
start loving The Zoli Band!!!
