Kutti MC describes himself as a musician since quite a while.
Cit. P.M.: “Then i have to be a bit scared about my professional stand.”
Poiesis and Aistesis are the oldest terms in occidental high culture. (G.M.)
“‘Art is a term created during the renaissance. For me there is only ’poetry’!” (J.T.)
If now Jürg Halter speaks of himself as a musician, then that means nothing but a poorly hidden “squint towards the audience”. (T.W.A)
His poetry is not to discuss. But his musical output is still questionable after all. The band members and guest musicians are altogether highest level – perhaps exept their grade of reflection concerning the way they are included in Kutti MCs projects.
The session itself is very intense and entertaining. But only if one manages it to forget all the chatting about liberty, improvisation and spontanity. In relation to this thematics in music artists like Kutti MC are no comparison to Jazz or Classical Music. (B.B.)
Garmisch has been together for about six years now. They’ve previously released two EPs on the Swedish netlabel “Go, Jukebox!” and have on and off been doing live shows in the Malmö region. They’ve from the start been putting together a mixture of influences and ideas, still trying to find their intended style; without any intentions about ever really getting there.
Under »Freedom & Free Beer« the Musikpiraten e.V. has launched his fourth Free! Music! Contest. Music from around the globe has been selected by a jury. The winning bands come from Argentine, Chile, Germany, France, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Hungary and the U.S.A.
Lowpines are from west London, where songs are written in a clutter of guitars, amps and keyboards, in a dusty studio looking out at the trees. Inspired by Sparklehorse, Bonnie Prince Billy, Smog and Eels, these are songs with a quiet defiance, made in a hidden corner of the city.
Paolo and Claire are Young Romance. They write about love and doubt and dislocation, wrapping up their words in a layer of fuzz and distortion. They are inseparable. They live together, write together, finish each other’s sentences and second-guess what the other’s going to say next.
Andy Doran is Heifervescent and writes words and music, produces arrangements and sound compositions, draws pictures, makes them move and lots of other stuff. Way back in the 1990s when dinosaurs roamed the earth and a bag of chips was less than 30p, he left the graphic design college and instead of going out and buying a black roll neck jumper and applying for jobs in advertising agencies, he went out and bought a second hand jacket from Afflecks Palace and joined an indie guitar band.
The Alternative/Indie band Zeugshmitz from Brunico is making music since the 90’s. From the band’s formation in 1992 on, its members Egon “Niggile” Niederkolfer (bass), Gerd „Stolle“ Stoll (guitar and vocals), Klaus “Knut” Balzarek (guitar and vocals) and Matthias “Matti” Pallua (drums), have been active and valuable members of the South Tyrolean music scene.
The Candy Strypers is Paul Hughes, and this is his own presentation of himself and his music. “I’m 30, from Manchester, UK. I’ve been in love with melodic guitar pop forever, but it took me till my early twenties to pick up a guitar. I played drums in a band when I was at school, so I bought a drumkit as well, then some recording software and started writing songs. This is my first official release – I hope you enjoy it!”
