THE GOLDEN GRASS
The return to Europe by one of the most exciting new groups of the global underground Heavy Rock scene, THE GOLDEN GRASS! Feel-good heavy boogie rock music, complete with soaring soulful harmony-laden vocals, epic psychedelic/prog passages, southern/country vibrations and top-notch musicality!
They will on tour with another great band from Sweden on Crusher Records: HYPNOS. They play heavy action boogie rock and is at this moment one of the fastest growing bands on the Swedish heavy rock scene.

KING’S QUEER
King’s Queer : restless Post Punk, musical hybrid, outcast duet, voices and machines, feelings and sensation explorers, from heart -warm to desperation.
Their gigs may be best described as perfomative, eclectical and empowering parties . In their already 6 years of existence, they did hundreds of tour dates in France, Switzerland, Deutschland, Germany, Belgium, Canada and french Polynesia. From a musical point of view, King’s Queer is all about original creations, electro tweakings and magnetical sequences inspired by artists such as Lou Reed, The Velvet Undergound as well as milestones song writers from the disco-pop era.
On stage, King’s Queer turns out to be an thrilling and burning live moment where the audience is in for a roller-coaster hell of a ride. In short, that’s a REAL show.

CHES SMITH – WE ALL BREAK – A MEETING OF HAITIAN DRUMS AND CREATIVE MUSIC (USA-HAITI)
With two teachers of mine, Daniel Brevil and Markus Schwartz on traditional haitian percussion: rada and petwo drums; myself on drumset and Haitian boula drum; Matt Mitchell on piano and percussion.
I wrote music for the piano using traditional Haitian rhythms and structures; we sing songs of Vodou as well. There are many many contributions from Daniel, Markus, and Matt which make a strong impression on the group’s sound.

ANTONIO CASTRIGNANÒ
Antonio Castrignanò is a tambourine player and singer rooted in Salento’s musical culture,  combining raw energy and pure emotion while moving from gentle chanting to the explosive rhythm of the Pizzica Tarantata. Antonio is a symbol of musicamong the people of Salento. Main voice and tambourine of the Notte della Taranta Ensemble, has performed, collaboratedand shared the stage with many important artists such as Stewart Copeland (The Police), Mauro Pagani, TrilokGurtu, Negramaro, Ludovico Einaudi, Vinicio Capossela.
He has performed live with his own ensemble in USA, China, India, Jordan, France, Ireland,
Portugal, Spain, Greece, Bulgaria, Germany, Austria.

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
Benjamin Franklin plays music since 1996 (Buffle, ROT,Gangalai&Gourabai…). He is known as the casio-pop musician in a punky way, composing instant dreamy melodies & soundscapes with old synths (or guitar) and some effects. Some tracks or releases on Stenze Quo, Snaphots, Taped Sounds, Sloow Tapes, Disques de l’oubli, Lexi disques,Young Tapes, Ubik, Kraak, Lal Lal Lal..

DEATH INDEX
Death Index is a new project of Carson Cox (Merchandise, Neon Blud, Church Whip) and Marco Rapisarda (La Piovra, Sgurd, Archaic). Their debut album was conceived and recorded between Berlin, Tampa Bay, and Palermo, Italy. Born in Sicily. Dead in America. Born again in Berlin. Songs about Death and Dying. Computer Death. Social Death. Animal Violence. Death Index has yielded an album that has more in common with the primordial days of art punk than anything out there today. Roaring out of the gate with a feedback driven gallop, the album brings to mind the swagger of The Birthday Party and others. Simple synth lines and manic guitars swirl heavily throughout. Conjuring the experimental spirit of legends Suicide, while Carson’s infectious vocal croon serves as a melodious anchor through a multitude of unpredictable twists and turns.

MAGNETIX
MAGNETIX are a scuzzy garage rock duo from Bordeaux, France. They released their third LP “Drogue Electrique” on Born Bad and Slovenly Records last year. Now they have this new 7″ to offer from Shit in Can Records with one previously unreleased track.
Magnetix offer us their filthy yet refreshing brand of brash and sloppy garage rock with their new single. Their songs feature sharp and metallic guitars that cut like the edge of a jagged tin can, filled out with pummeling rhythm sections that at times sound either influenced by punk rock or even surf rock. Everything tends to get very dense and noisy in “Drogue Electrique” – they push on through with stomping guitar blasts and furious vocals that sound flattened by the instrumentation – which all combines for this ridiculous and extensive finale that is worth every second.

JAAP BLONK
As a vocalist, Jaap Blonk is unique for his powerful stage presence and almost childlike freedom in improvisation, combined with a keen grasp of structure. He has performed around the world, on all continents. With the use of live electronics the scope and range of his concerts has acquired a considerable extension.
Besides working as a soloist, he collaborated with many musicians and ensembles in the field of contemporary and improvised music, like Maja Ratkje, Mats Gustafsson, Joan La Barbara, The Ex, the Netherlands Wind Ensemble and the Ebony Band. He premiered several compositions by the German composer Carola Bauckholt, including a piece for voice and orchestra. A solo voice piece was commissioned by the Donaueschinger Musiktage 2002. On several occasions he collaborated with visual computer artist Golan Levin.

Thank you for reading.

I hope to hear from you asap.

All the best.
