    KALTE LUST

    Pride Is Your Consolation Prize

    [engl] This release shows how the Destructure musical spectrum is wide. Bordeaux KALTE LUST features members of punk acts like GASMASK TERRÖR or WARNING WARNING among many others but expect something slightly different. Their first LP was critically acclaimed in both parts of the Atlantic. The band delivers a cold and melancolic post-punk often compared to Siouxsie and the Banshees and X-Mal Deutschland due to the female vocals and a strong 80's atmosphere coming up from their music. "Pride is your Consolation Prize" is a step forward, the band develops its personality with more variety and experimentation in the songs structures. This second album contains 8 new tracks sung in english, german and (for the first time) french.

    LITIGE

    En Eaux Troubles

    [engl] We know a lot of you were looking foward to LITIGE's second album, so we were. "En haut trouble" is out now and we are really excited about it as it's just the perfect following to "Fuite en avant" released in 2017. LITIGE have sharpened their identity and universe and these 10 new songs hit the target. Some may sum up LITIGE as melodic punk-rock but it's much more than that. Enjoy this new record as much as we do.

    ANDY THE BAND

    Lethal Weapons

    [engl] Andy The Band is the solo project by Andy Dahlström from Terrible Feelings, Sista Sekunden & Satanic Surfers. The music is more straight forward rock than the other bands, but with clear punk roots and attitude; something that a punk can’t wash off. The energy translates through the poppy melodies. All instruments are played by Andy, and produced by him and Tommy Tift. After the first EP (Carry On, Sabotage 2017) and a few shows in Sweden, ATB went to Japan as support to Vånna Inget on their tour.

    Mariah

    Utakata No Hibi

    [engl] Mariah was a Japanese outfit in the field of art pop, way back in the very late 70s and early 80s with 5 albums up their score from 1980 to 1983. The album from 1979 entitled as "Mariah" was actually made before the band Mariah was formed, and was released as a solo album by Yasuaki Shimizu. The album at hand is the fifth and for the time being last album in this row, released as a double vinyl back in 1983. Original copies, that are at least in very good condition, are hard to find. The brand new reissue on Everland, unlike the original and the first vinyl reissue from 2015, comes housed in a thick and artfully designed gatefold sleeve with OBI, which finally does justice to the progressive spirit of the music you will find here. The musical basement of Utakata No Hibi is a fusion of dreamy synthesizer pop and haunting new wave music, that could be found all around the globe back in 1983. In the vein of TEARS FOR FEARS or more adventurous DAVID BOWIE stuff, with a touch of KRAFTWERK or even BRIAN ENO here and there, but all this gets spiced up with an atmosphere of Japanese traditionalism, with a few bits and pieces from the old music from this Far East island, which sounds so magic to us Westeners. The progressive, wacky art pop of this project was led by the popular Japanese composer and musician Yasuaki Shimizu, a relentlessly exploratory saxophonist who even dared to rework Johann Sebastian Bach’s cello suites for saxophone. As brilliant as this man is, the music on „Utakata No Hibi“ turns out to be. And the master himself approved and much appreciated the brandnew remastering of this album by assisting a highly professional team of sound engineers who dusted off the ancient tape reels. For certain the record sounds and feels 80s through and through, electronic to the very rhythmical bone of each song sugar coated with catchy melodies that resemble Japanese classic and Enka music, which is a kind of folksy pop music. The listener gets directly drawn into a feverish dream of steaming Far Eastern cities and their darkest and most depraved corners where you find everything cheap in sleazy bars and unlighted backyards and alleys. The next moment he strolls through a beautiful Japanese park surrounded by a sea of blossoms. This change in mood and style you will experience in the sparsely instrumented tune „Shisen“, which indeed comes closest to classic Japanese folk tunes without any too catchy and pop oriented melodies. But we certainly find these harmonies allover the album. Some tunes even feel like ancient BEACH BOYS compositions and Brian Wilson creations played by a then contemporary electronic pop act and sung in Japanese. An amazingly colorful album with songs that are based on solid substance rather than cheap pop structures. This is music for the bold listeners and music lovers and this awesome reissue should quickly find it’s way into the record collections of 80s synth and art pop aficionadoes. Yasuaki Shimizu did what he wanted with MARIAH, pushed the borders of popular music further than anybody would have thought. Listen to a track like „Shonen“ with a repetitive rhythm pattern that hypnotizes you and somehow silky melodylines by saxophone and synth piano upon which a female voice sings in a very spiritual way. Praising pop or whatever this can be called, it is sheer magic put in music. I wonder if this would have made it into the charts back then, but you never know. It is a piece of musical art that shall be listened to. Grab your copy now!!!

    ANNEES ZERO

    s/t

    [engl] Exactly one year after the release of their first 7’’, ANNEES ZERO does it again ! Lille incendiary quintet has built a strong reputation taking no prisoners in their live acts. These representatives of a ripped and fallen world are back with a new 7’’. This new record is an alloy of rage and emergency in which the band didn’t fear to bring new influences (expect some more noise and disturbance). The incandescence spreads itself in these five pissed off hardcore tracks. The band uses these words to explain its approach : « At our own pace, we are moving forward and we are stripping ourselves to live at best in this disastrous and hostile world, and always against it. » 500 copies on black vinyl.

    KRONSTADT

    s/t

    [engl] Here we go again with a band from Lille, risen from the still burning ashes of TRAITRE, KRONSTADT is a new band from this really active punk scene. The ease option would be to compare them to their previous band but we won't. KRONSTADT offers some great punk-rock, heady and melancholic but also straightforward and catchy. A bunch of French punk bands from the 80's may come to mind while listening to this as well as more recent stuff but don't get wrong, KRONSTADT is nothing else but KRONSTADT. This 12" gathers anger, disobedience and urgency. KRONSTADT is also a band which succeeds at this hard task which writing french lyrics. This is a corelease with Une Vie Pour Rien, Senseless acts of Anger and Les Âmes d'Atala.

    YOUTH AVOIDERS

    Relentless

    [engl] "Relentless" is the long awaited YOUTH AVOIDERS second album. The five years between this new full lenght and their debut have been really intense for the band, made of constant live appearances everywhere around the globe. Intensity is the trademark of YOUTH AVOIDERS, "Relentless" is the fruit of a five days session in the Normandy countryside studio Swan Sound. To keep it simple, "Relentless" is YOUTH AVOIDERS making what they have done so good so far but even better : catchy riffing, rich melodies, inexhaustible drumming, sharp vocals... The band has also raised the tempo, these 11 songs go at an unrestrained pace. "Relentless" well bears its name !

    HORROR VACUI

    New Wave Of Fear

    [engl] Three years after their second album "Return Of The Empire", the italian Vampire punx combo returns with their new full length „New Wave of Fear’’. The tunes got darker and less punk than their previous releases but, all in all, the formula hasn't changed too much, and, hell yeah, this is a concept album about life and death. The A side has been named "This Side" and deals with things that belong to the world we're living (immigration, the rise of the extreme right wing parties, terror, life in general etc.). The B side has been named "Other Side" and it's all dedicated about death. It's a more intense record and definitely better than their old ones, and you can also hear the crusty roots of some of the members in their last song where Amebix and Fields Of The Nephilim meet in a no men's land to face the end of it all. Horror Vacui will tour in August/September along with their PDX dark merchant fellows Bellicose Minds.

    Star Feminine Band

    Femme Africaine

    Aus einer abgelegenen Region im Nordwesten von Benin kommt die siebenköpfige Star Feminine Band, eine Gruppe junger Mädchen im Alter zwischen neun und fünfzehn Jahren, die frech, unbeschwert und voller Energie Genres wie Garage-Rock, Pop und traditionelle Songs ihrer Heimat durcheinanderwirbeln. Geboren wurde die Band 2016 als Idee des professionellen Musikers André Baleguemon. Er wollte eine ausschließlich weiblich besetzte Band zusammenstellen, die sich den aktuellen Themen der Zeit annahm. Im Zentrum sollten Gitarre, Schlagzeug und Keyboards stehen, weil er diese Instrumente seit seiner Kindheit im ländlichen Tchaourou als Zeichen von Moderne bewundert hatte. Der Grund für seine Initiative: „Im Norden haben Mädchen keine Möglichkeiten weiterzukommen und Frauen werden an den Rand gedrängt. Ich wollte einfach zeigen, wie wichtig Frauen in der Gesellschaft Nord-Benins sind, indem ich ein weibliches Orchester gründe.“ Gesagt, getan: Unterstützt von der 35.000 Einwohner zählenden Stadt Natitingou, die fünfzehn Stunden Fahrt vom Regierungssitz Cotonou entfernt liegt, veröffentlichte André eine Pressemitteilung beim Radiosender Nanto FM, in der er kostenfreie Musikstunden für Mädchen anbot. Dem Aufruf folgten Dutzende junger Musikerinnen. „Die Mädchen wussten nichts über Musik – wir entschieden uns für sieben Mädchen aus den umliegenden Dörfern mit Waama und Nabo-Hintergrund. Einige von ihnen hatten Instrumente wie Keyboards noch nie gesehen.“ André kaufte zwei Schlagzeuge, zwei Gitarren, Keyboards und Percussion und die ersten Proben mit den hochmotivierten neuen Rekrutinnen begannen. Die Band machte in den intensiven Workshops und Proben erstaunlich schnell große Fortschritte und es kristallisierte sich folgendes Line-Up heraus: Angelique und Urrice an Schlagzeug und Gesang, unterstützt von der dritten Schlagzeugerin Marguerite, Sandrine an Keyboards, wie auch Grace, die außerdem singt. Julienne ist am Bass und Anne an der Gitarre zu hören. Die Band hat mittlerweile Dutzende Konzerte in der Region gespielt, ihr Repertoire immer weiter ausgebaut und viele Fans vor Ort gewonnen, darunter viele Frauen, Eltern mit ihren Kindern und Ältere, für die es ansonsten auf dem Land nur wenig kulturelle Ablenkung gibt. Neben den musikalischen Fortschritten legt André Baleguemon einen weiteren Schwerpunkt seiner Arbeit darauf, die Familien von der Wichtigkeit des Projekts auch in menschlicher Hinsicht zu überzeugen, und zu bewirken, dass die Mädchen weiter in die Schule gehen statt in Gelegenheitsjobs als Straßenverkäuferinnen oder in die Heirat gezwungen zu werden. Es gibt in der Geschichte der populären Musik Afrikas viele große Künstlerinnen, aber nur wenige weibliche Bands, darunter die Amazones de Guinée, die Famille Bassavé und les Colombes de la Révolution in Burkina Faso, die Sœurs Comoë aus der Elfenbeinküste oder die Lijadu Sisters aus Nigeria. In Benin gab und gibt es nichts Vergleichbares in puncto Haltung, Freiheit, Originalität und vor allem Talent. Haupteinflussquelle für die Band ist laut André die große Angélique Kidjo, die selbst aus dem Benin stammt: „Sie ist eine Frau, die man nicht ignorieren kann. Auch auf Miriam Makeba wie auch Sagbohan Danialou und Stanislas Tohon sind wir sehr stolz und Kaba Diya, das große Orchester aus der Gegend hat uns stark inspiriert.“ Das zwischen 1979 und 1983 aktive Orchester Kaba Diya hatte sich nach dem Helden der Region „Kaba“ benannt, der im Ersten Weltkrieg den Militärdienst verweigerte und danach einen bitteren Guerillakrieg gegen die französische Kolonialmacht führte. In vielen ländlichen Regionen des afrikanischen Kontinents und auch in manchen Metropolen hat sich das Leben der Frauen seit den 1960er Jahren, als während der Unabhängigkeitskämpfe ein positiver Wandel zu Modernität, Kultur und Emanzipation angestrebt wurde, kaum verändert. Selbst die aktuelle MeToo-Bewegung hat bislang keinen spürbaren Wandel bewirkt. Die Star Feminine Band thematisiert die Lage der Frauen in ihren Texten, die in verschiedenen Sprachen verfasst sind. André Baleguemon dazu: „wir komponieren Songs in Französisch, Waama und Ditamari, zwei unbekannte ethnische Gruppen aus dem Norden. Wir singen in unserem neuen Repertoire auch Songs in Bariba und Fon, der Hauptsprache in Benin, um von möglichst vielen Menschen verstanden zu werden.“ André komponiert die Songs, aber alle sieben Bandmitglieder bringen ihre eigenen Ideen mit ein, wie er sagt: „Sie sprechen über die weibliche Genitalverstümmelung, Missbrauch und Gewalt gegen Frauen. Wir wollen diese Themen in die politische Debatte in Benin und wenn möglich, auch anderswo in Afrika einschließen.“ Der Song „Peba“ ist in der Sprache Waama geschrieben und handelt von Mädchen, die zur Schule gehen, um sie selbst sein zu können; in „Femme Africaine“ geht es auf Französisch gesungen um Selbstbestimmung und Freiheit. „Timtilu“ in der Ditamari-Sprache animiert dazu, die eigene Kultur zu ehren und nicht aufzugeben; „Rew Be Me“ in der Peul-Sprache, ist eine Ode an die Frau, ein Song über die Emanzipation und eine Bestärkung, den eigenen Weg zu gehen. Das in Bariba gesungene Stück „Iseo“ will die Menschen aus unterschiedlichen Regionen und Kulturen vereinen, um sie voranzubringen und „Idesouse“ spornt Mädchen dazu an, ihre Schulzeit nicht zu früh zu beenden. Ende 2018 brachte ein Treffen mit dem jungen französischen Toningenieur Jérémie Verdier das Projekt in Bewegung. Er holte seine spanischen Freunde Juan Toran und Juan Serra mit ihrem Aufnahmegerät an Bord, um die ersten Songs im Anbau eines Museums in Natitingou einzuspielen. Rein zufällig hörte Jean-Baptiste Guillot vom Label Born Bad Records die Aufnahmen und beschloss, die Band Ende 2019 in ihrer Heimat zu treffen. Daraus entwickelte sich die jetzt anstehende Albumveröffentlichung. Mit einer gehörigen Portion Selbstvertrauen, viel Charisma und nicht zuletzt einem tiefen Glauben hat sich die Star Feminine Band zum Stolz der Atakora-Region entwickelt. Die Bandmitglieder verkörpern die Zukunft. Sie schauen sich nach Ausbildungsberufen um und bereiten damit den Boden für die nächste Generation der Mädchen aus der Provinz. Gerry Goffins berühmte Aussage „In the Sixties, God was a young black girl who could sing” nimmt sechzig Jahre später in einer vergessenen Provinz des afrikanischen Kontinents neue Bedeutung an.
