The Blaster Master (FIN)


Ska

The Blaster Master is a Two-tone Ska band with 'forca!' from Oulu, Finland. The city has a reputation for its cold winters and angst-filled bands, but this posse is totally different! The Blaster Master is all about no-holds barred lust for life worth living, and the sounds that set the checkered dancefloor on fire. 

The Blaster Master formed in 1995, and has since then released four full length albums (Skanga 1997, Skandinista 2000, Tuffer than Roots 2005 and Rude Boy Life 2008). They have also released numerous singles and have appeared on various international ska compilations from various record labels, eg. The Grover, Burning Heart, Step Aside and Pork Pie. 

As the years have passed, The Blaster Master is now the most recognised ska group in Finland. The Blaster Master has played almost every big domestic music festival. They are known in European stages as well- in the 20 years of their exceptional career, they have played in United Kingdom,  Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, France...

Ivan Ivanovich & The Kreml Krauts (D)


ZUSATZKONZERT!

Die acht Trierer Jungs versetzen nun schon seit vielen Jahren ihr Publikum regelmäßig in Ekstase. Egal, wo sie mit ihrer fröhlichen Mischung aus russischer Folklore, tanzbarem Uffza-uffza Sound und mitreißendem Punk auf die Bühne kommen, lassen sie nicht locker, bis jedes Bein in Bewegung ist und der Schweiß von der Decke tropft. Musikalische Klasse gepaart mit schier unbändiger Spielfreude sorgen für ein Liveerlebnis, das seinesgleichen sucht. Die treibenden Polkarhythmen, kreiert von Schlagzeug, Bass und Gitarre vermischen sich mit herzerweichenden Melodien von Akkordeon, Horn, Saxophon und Posaune zu einem einzigartigen Klangbild. Darauf zeichnet Sänger Ivan Ivanovich wunderschöne Kunstwerke voller Trauer und Schmerz, die jeden Konzertbesucher innerlich erwärmen - damit jeder am Ende genau versteht, was die russische Seele ausmacht.

 

Einlass: 20h, Beginn: 21.30h, Eintritt: 10€

The Mings (UK/NL) / Filthtones (D)


Garage Rock / trash rock n roll two-piece

Meanwhile back on Planet Mongo the evil Emperor Ming has been experimenting with self duplication, hoping to form an all Ming string quartet. However, his initial replication attempts fail after the Imperial Cloning Device becomes contaminated with the anti-matter of bald Englishman, a dead Dutchman and a particularly wild, hairy Brazilian. To his utter fury Ming discovers his creations are not only physically flawed but can barely play three chords. His chamber quartet plans in tatters the diabolic one decides upon another fiendish plan. He will send his Ming like creations to Earth as a rock n roll combo, where they are tasked with destroying the worlds moral and social fabric with primal garage band stupidity! Banished to earth these three strange musical reprobates - Bald Ming, Dead Ming and Wild Ming - begin their primitive musical rampage! They start by writing and recording a brutal garage surf garage punk album under the watchful yet unsuspecting eye of Dutch impresario Arjan Spies. They then hoodwink English record label 'Trashwax' into an album release before embarking on a merciless earth shattering European tour....

Unsubstantiated rumours that the band features Sir Bald Diddley aka Hipbone Slim, Dead Elvis, Marky Wildstone (Deadrocks)....

 

Filthtones - A granny from Thessaloniki and an outcast of Manchester met in Bonn and decided to only eat raw meat.

Mammoth Mammoth (AUS) / Superfuse (D)


Heavy Rock / Rock

MAMMOTH MAMMOTH are a heavy rock band from Melbourne Australia that smash the shit out of their stoner, glam, doom, punk and psychedelic rock influences.

They've tagged their sound as 'Good-time-murder-fuzz' - and it's consequent effect as, 'the sound that sometimes kills unicorns' and 'more awesome than God's tits!'

The band suffered several setbacks before playing their first live show. Their launch venue, Cherry Bar burnt down, Singer Mikey Tucker was hospitalised after a brawl with a gang of hammer wielding thugs and Bassist and Guitarist Cuz and Gash survived a shoot-out in Melbourne strip club 'Kittens, to name a few.

In the end their first live shows gained immediate media attention.Their physical, no-holds-barred approach and front man, Mikey Tucker's reckless performances gained them an immediate and dedicated following. In that year they we're voted among the top 5 live shows in Melbourne's premier Newspaper, The Age Entertainment Guide.

Their first EP was released prior to any live shows proved popular in Europe and Australia with several tracks licensed to commercials and the feature film, The Loved Ones'.

Their first video clip was immediately banned. It used 1970s European pornography and was pulled from youtube, myspace and facebook - but not before it had over 1 million views and probably as many complaints.

On the release of their third album, they we’re signed by European label Napalm Records who further released it worldwide to excellent reviews in November 2012.

Consequently MAMMOTH MAMMOTH have featured in dozens international Magazines like Rock Hard France and Germany, HEAVY MAGAZINE France and Metal Hammer magazine’s German, French and UK editions – in which they were voted in at number two for ‘album of the month’ in December 2012. The band has also been named among the top Heavy rock albums of 2012 in numerous music blogs.

In 2013 the band toured Europe and played sold out shows through Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and the UK. 2014 saw the band undertake an Australian tour with Kyuss's John Garcia whilst spending time in the Black Spur Forest writing and recording their 4th album, Volume IV Hammered Again.

2015 saw the release of Hammered Again with the band touring extensively across Australia and Europe. MAMMOTH MAMMOTH also played shows with Hellyeah, Sleep and Black Label Society. 2016 will see the release of a limited edition EP MAMMOTH BLOODY MAMMOTH and the band again ripping through Europe.

 

Vielleicht liegt das Markenzeichen guter „retro“ orientierter Rockmusik (d.h. „retro ohne retro sein zu wollen„) in dem Gefühl, dass man gerade zufällig ein Schätzchen entdeckt hat. Dieses Gefühl lässt sich nicht ganz in Worte fassen, vielleicht am ehesten noch als Mischung aus Vertrautheit und Neuentdeckung. Bei dem Kölner Quintett superfuse passt diese Beschreibung wie die Faust aufs Auge. Vor allem kommt die Musik mit ordentlichen Power-Riff-Rock-Einflüsse aus vergangener Zeit daher – von den fuzz-Gitarre-getriebenen, dunklen rhythmischen Exkursionen mancher Proto-Metal Bands der spät sechziger und siebziger (z.B. Iron Claw, Atomic Rooster und natürlich Black Sabbath) bis hin zu den rohen, edgy-melodiös-schweren Hooks der 90er-Alt-Rock-Szene (z.B. Chevelle, Skunk Anansie, Monster Magnet). Der Sound von superfuse fühlt sich an wie ein Deja-Vu, eine nachhaltige Erinnerung an etwas, was es so eigentlich nie gegeben hat. Dabei macht die Band ganz klar ihr eigenes Ding: Krachend aber catchy. Intensiv. Erdig. Aber zugleich schwebend-hypnotisch. Buckle up folks!

Damniam (D) / Primetime Failure (D)


PunkRock / Skatepunk / Pop Punk

Man sieht es den Milchgesichtern nicht an, aber DAMNIAM gibt es seit mittlerweile zehn Jahren. Pünktlich zum Jubiläum gibt es das dritte Album
Planet Piss. Die im Hamburger Hertzwerk-Studio bei Olman Wiebe (u.a. Captain Planet, Smile and Burn, ZSK) entstandene Platte lotet das
Soundspektrum der Band noch weiter aus: Die Punkrocknummern sind räudiger, die Ohrwürmer eingängiger, die ruhigen Songs gänsehautiger, ohne dabei den Trademark-Sound der Band zu verlieren. Die insgesamt abwechslungsreicheren Songs wurden bereits ausgiebig live getestet,
zuletzt unter anderem als Support für Teenage Bottlerocket, Satanic Surfers und the Buzzcocks. Nachdem das letzte Album der Münsteraner
hinsichtlich der Texte mehrheitlich gut gelaunt war, thematisiert Planet Piss eine Gesellschaft zwischen digitaler Selbstdarstellung, neoliberalem
Leistungsdruck und politischem Rechtsruck. Da hilft dann manchmal nur Bier.

 

"Born and raised in suburban areas around Bielefeld, Germany, 4 guys in their thirty-somethings are still trying to save your day. Even though their sound can’t be pigeonholed...stop naaaah damn it... Primetime Failure simply plays that kind of "Skate Punk" a whole generation grew up on.
Remember when you bought that "Mons Tour" longsleeve?
Or the day you first heard all those songs on your older brothers' mixtape?
Remember nearly breaking all your bones trying to skate?
Remember the days you thought it would be like this forever? ...
If there was a slapstick movie on your salad days in the ninetees, Primetime Failure would write the perfect soundtrack to it."
