We are extremely proud that we’re sponsoring Avantgarde Festival - the legendary gathering of experimental music and performing arts brought to life by Jean-Hervé Peron (Faust) and Carina Varain in 1996. Year after year, around summer solstice, people from all over the world travel to Schiphorst, a small village in the North of Germany to celebrate art & life; Three Days of Utopia (Chris Cutler).
Full Moon Fiasco underline Berlin’s reputation as melting pot of the contemporary international music scene: The band unites musicians from New Zealand, South Africa, Germany and Croatia. Modern psychedelic sound with the accustomed twist of the post cold war Berlin experience.

“Thinking, talking and listening is more beneficial than hours spent in a practice room”
Adam Cadell is an Australian fiddle player, writer and educator with a bristling mistrust of all established norms and a desire to kick against any oppression, resulting in questioning the whole Europian notion of the “avant-garde” that puts newness above quality and tradition.
Number Three Combo - Resurfacing (SlowBurn Records, 2017)
Multi-instrumentalist Eric Johnson has spearheaded Tucson, Arizona-based SlowBurn Records for three decades, and the label celebrates its 30th anniversary with the third and final release from Number Three Combo. Sadly, it also represents SlowBurn’s final release of original material, although Johnson promises to release archival material from label favourites like Black Sun Ensemble, Sun Zoom Spark, and many others. So fans of the label will have many new and interesting releases to anticipate, but we’ll take a few moments to rejoice and sing the praises of another fine musical biscuit from this heady quartet.
Doctors Of Madness “Perfect Past: The Complete Doctors Of Madness” (RPM, 2017)
During their original lifespan, 1974 to 1978, the Doctors Of Madness defied definition as a band as well as the norms of the music industry. Only in retrospect were Richard Strange and his bandmates credited as being “new wave before people were punk” and by logical extension were, therefore, punk before there was punk! RPM Records has collected the band’s complete musical legacy, three LPs and a lone single, supplemented by thirteen previously unreleased tracks in Perfect Past a soon to be released three CD career retrospective box set..
“A byproduct of being outdoors, being still and listening”
With Vesiä, 29 year old Finnish artist and musician Olli Aarni made a triple tape box set with recordings of water.
What does Vesiä mean?
Vesiä means Waters in Finnish. I wanted to keep it really simple and self-explanatory. I almost always use the Finnish language on the titles of my work, because I’m bored of English most often being the lingua franca for art.
The slacker rockers burst into life in the early months of 2016, born from the member’s shared enthusiasm of relentlessly fuzzed-out guitar riffs juxtaposed with melancholic ambiences.
WUZI spent 2016 playing shows all around the country and ended the year headlining Indie Week Festival in Toronto. Despite the short time they have been around, their explosive sets have grabbed the attention of a growing army of fans and music scene stalwarts.
New song “DD” is a follow up to their first single “Atomis”, and the start of a steady stream of singles to be released in 2017.
London based singer- songwriter follows the smoke trails left by his early 70s acid folk heroes. This is dark existential acid folk at its most meditative and transcendental. Songs of death, imprisonment, mutation, and powerlessness are presented amongst lush finger picked melodies, lysergic mellotron swirls and haunted Teutonic synths.
What do you consider to be your first real exposure to music?
My parents were still listening to stuff like Pink Floyd, Hendrix, Cream, Rory Gallagher, Deep Purple when I was an infant in the 70s. One of my earliest recollections as a kid was listening to Meddle in a smoky room and the whale part in “Echoes” giving me the creeps; I still find that bit slightly terrifying. But my parents were really young so from day one I’ve been exposed to this music, which I’m really grateful for. Haven’t moved on a bit really.
Moteur! plays improvised psychedelic music, and was created in 2017 in Montpellier (France) by Léo Minart (guitar), Jude Mas (keyboards), and Guillaume Jankowski (drums). Moteur!’s music is improvised, recorded and overdubbed in the band’s studio, “L’espace ou le poulet”, also the main control room of their associative label Bermuda Cruise, which is releasing this first self-titled album.
Overcoming any stylistical or temporal border, Moteur! is developing a new music freely inspired by imagination, mystical practices and sonic experimentations. Inheriting from the spirit of rock in opposition, zeuhl and krautrock, the band’s music is original and unique, based on improvisation and openness, and far away from today’s commercial standards and formatting.
