opcion



MONOS/UИD is Opcion´s debut album under this moniker, released on the austrian vinyl-label for contemporary music GOD Records. The first side – MONOS – offers three solo works of heavily processed and composed noise, accompanied with harsh beats. On the second side – UИD – Opcion joins forces with Maja Osojnik (broke.heart.collector), Bernhard Loibner (who works with melita from metalycée tt) and Kurt Bauer, to create three works based on improvisational recordings which were later edited to become fully constructed pieces.

the sweetest noise



THE SWEETEST NOISE
'The Sweetest Noise' is the new blog from the doctor!
Who? Dr. Nachtstrom, maybe you know him as a so called 'tausendsassa' from Graz / Austria, some years ago he published releases on the established Vienna based label Mego, aired his fantastic radio show/blog 'Uberklang' on radio Helsinki and so on ....

His new blog provides us with news from the international noise scene and in addition - due to the fact of his excellent taste of music - he'll introduce the pearls from the underground and other grounds.

the compromise is not possible



THE COMPROMISE IS NOT POSSIBLE
is the title of an hour-long composition written for female voice, drums, electric guitar and organ by Slobodan Kajkut, an independent contemporary composer from Serbia. It premiered in 2005 in Graz as a commissioned piece for "Hörfest", a festival for contemporary music.

Written to be performed at churches only, it is a combination of traditional contemporary composition techniques with Rock and Heavy Metal: Harmonies, rythmic changes and silence meets distorted guitars, feedback orgies and drums inspired by Speed and Death Metal.
Three years after its premiere at St. Andrä Church in Graz, it was reperfomed by the same musicians at the same location and recorded and released as a double LP by the austrian independent label Wire Globe Recordings.

For all of you, who wonder who Slobodan is: "The Striggles" - rings a bell? he's part of them, among other bands like "Jubbooko sa Negrass", "Mizar" and "Betty Blue".

On november 4th 2009 "the compromise is not possible" will be performed at the parish church (Stadtpfarrkirche) of Linz at 20:30.

line-up:
Robert Lepenik - guitar
Christine Scherzer - voice
Hannes Kerschbaumer - organ
Wolfgang Eichinger - drums

FILM IST. A GIRL AND A GUN
In his new phenomenal movie "film ist. a girl & a gun", Gustav Deutsch takes us once again back to the time when cinema was born. Collected scenes from screenings, taken around the prior turn of the century were arranged to a collage, telling a second story if you "read between the scenes".
Documentary, fictional, pornographic, scientific and propaganda images are cut in a way to alienate them from their original purpose, leaving a different story behind.

Lucia Pulido, Martin Siewert, Burkhard Stangl and Christian Fennesz created a stunning soundtrack that might tell us even a third story from scene to scene. We at Interstellar Records are very proud to release two songs from this soundtrack: 2 Colombian traditionals backed by Vienna's finest sound wizards.

KAPUTIQUE



info: KAPUTIQUE
KAPUTIQUE
record stores opened and died in Linz in the last couple of years in a row (except for one great, who still serves fantastic stuff from out of his flat). finally, there was no more possiblity for buying new and unexplored music in our town, besides at shows.

but 3 months ago activists, labels and artists started selling their stuff at the KAPUTIQUE, located in the greatest club in town: KAPU. records (mostly vinyl, of course), clothes, zines, comics, with a focus on the local scene and - certainly - all of our releases and mailorder stuff.

a great place for hanging around.

GIGI'S GOGOS
gigi's? gogos? sounds a bit like table-dancing, doesn't it? ha! got you!!
GIGI'S GOGOS is a bigband project conducted by TUMIDO's Gigi himself, a freejazz? noise? impro? rock? ...-something and definitely worth a listen (or two, if you care).
this 13-man-combo comprises members of BULBUL, TUMIDO, NIRWAKIA, FUCKHEAD, DELILAH and whonot and their debut release on ZACH REC rocks!!

(from their split with WMOS)
info: space patrol rec. XIMEL myspace
disco:
2004 split /w WEEPING MINDS OF SILENCE CD (space patrol)
XIMEL
is a 3-piece from the basque country, from bilbao (spain) to be more precise. heavy bass/guitars, distorted screaming and poundering drums - if you're into bands like BREACH, UNSANE or WHITE TORNADO you will definitely love them! (we already do!)
formed in 2000, they toured spain, france and switzerland quite a bit but unfortunately not hit austria so far, but we're still hoping for them to come...
XIMEL released a split with french WEEPING MINDS OF SILENCE so far, and their tracks on this record are absolutely mind blowing - and: they plan to record an album later this year plus will be on tour in 08/05 with UNSANE and TODAY IS THE DAY!!! if they come to play near by you - go for it!! we promise, you won't regret!

2005 trans panda LP
(kythibong/les potagers natures)
ROOM 204
are 2 crazy guys from nantes (france) - a guitar/drums-duo that makes us think of a mix of DON CABALLERO and ... the OXES?

this comparison fails them by far though. their live show in january '05 in austria left us mouth-open -- frenzy instrumental noise rock, loud, distorted - yeah!!

their last album 'trans panda' is top notch, plus: murmeltier/bär did a great job with the artwork - just some of various reasons for us to choose these guys for being first of our discovery series!
