    THE PILL

    Hollywood Smile

    [engl] Gimme, Gimme, Gimme Desire, an everlasting grip of that youthful energy, that fire and fury you felt playing a style of music that gives you a lifelong addiction and appreciation. If you’ve once been part of that certain something, that became part of your identity, it never lets you go. Drummer Sascha, bassist Jan, guitarists Philipp and Tobias know how it is getting older but still feeling the fire. The four friends shook up the scenes out of Frankfurt in the 90s and 00s. They played in different bands, they toured Europe and the US of A, they were mods, punks, hardcore kids. And they never lost their connection and love for their music. That’s why they got together some years back, rehearsing and writing songs just for the heck of it. Out of pure desperation the four of them were thinking about staying a goddamn instrumental band, maybe working with projections and shit to fog the fact that there was something initial missing: a singer. The road was calling their names, and they wanted to play shows and let you and you and you know what they got... So, they gave it one last try to find somebody to fill the void behind the mic. What helped was a platform – basically Tinder for musicians – to find that certain somebody. They kept it simple and only dropped one thing: #blackflag. On the other side of the screen there is Sam, a mystical, ghostly punkrock fairy. Sam shares that same hashtag, and she wants to sing. So, why not give it a try? Sam takes the offer, shows up in the rehearsal space, and the rest is history. Sam owns it. Sam is prepared. Sam can sing, scream, kick ass and has the lyrics to back it all up! On different occasions they now set stages on fire. They played a sweaty show in a packed Molotow cellar at Reeperbahn Festival, they joined the “Female Fronted Is Not A Genre” festival at legendary SO36 in Berlin and took the place by storm. They are ready. They were born ready. And they have that record to prove it. As any classic hardcore/punk LP it’s almost over before it started. Ten songs in twenty minutes. That’s the way. I Am A God sets the tone: “You think that I’m a girl?”, Sam asks, “Let me tell you I am a god/ And you know that I’m heaven sent.” What else would Sam be? The legendary hashtagged Californian hardcore icons drip out of every note here. This is old-school knowledge, played today. Fast, furious, and packed with energy. But it’s way more than just a bland tribute. It’s a middle-finger that finds its own direction. Salary Man allows itself a certain amount of melody – also carried by Sam who obviously can do more than bellow. Or Somewhere that shows that The Pill is a more dimensional band that can even Hüsker Dü things up if they are willing to. The Bitter Pill presents itself surprisingly angular and kind of melancholic. And What’s New almost makes its way into post-hardcore territory. Inbetween Switch and Off give you all the Greg Ginn vs. Dez Cadena your damaged souls were desperately striving for.

    HELDON

    Electronique Guerilla (Heldon I) (50th Anniversary Edition)

    [engl] In 1973, 22-year old Richard Pinhas was well on his way to becoming a full-time philosopher. He had almost finished his Ph.D and begun teaching at the University of Paris. But he also had a hobby: writing music and recording it himself. When he submitted a few tracks to British label E.G. (home of King Crimson and Roxy Music), the imprint was interested, but Pinhas was frustrated to find out he’d have to wait a year for them to release anything. So Pinhas put out his first album on his own label, Disjuncta. He called the project Heldon (from a location in Norman Spinrad’s 1972 sci-fi novel “The Iron Dream”). It might have been the first self-released rock record in France. “Or at least the first one that worked,” says Pinhas. “It was like a musical and political event in France. Musical because there were few artists using synthesizers here, or even in the world. And political because we tried to say that the big companies make everything bad and their records are too expensive.” Most of “Electronique Guerilla” was made by Pinhas alone, but “Ouais, Marchais, Mieux Qu’en 68” featured five collaborators, including one of his mentors, Gilles Deleuze. Over winding guitars and pointed percussion, the French philosopher reads lyrics taken from Friedrich Nietzsche’s “The Voyager and His Shadow”. Despite being self-released – with Pinhas himself delivering some stock directly to record stores — “Electronique Guerilla” quickly sold over 19,000 copies. That convinced Pinhas he should make and release more music by himself — but he would have little time for philosophy. “I had to make a decision, because at that point in France, you couldn’t do two jobs,” he remembers. “So I made this very bad choice to be a rock ’n’ roll musician.” It’s a choice he’s stuck to for four decades, and the fiery “Electronique Guerilla” provided a potent spark.

    LO FAT ORCHESTRA

    LFO_09

    Die Aschenbecher im Musikkeller werden kalt. Niemand hustet, das Bier schmeckt schal, und der in Zeitlupe drehenden Discokugel fehlen die Pailletten. Nur ein kleines Leuchtschild scheint auf den Tresen. Tonight: LO FAT ORCHESTRA – New Wave HIT-MACHINE from Schaffhausen, Switzerland. Die Band – drei Männer mit einem Sinn für runde Melodien – macht sich zu einer Geisterfahrt auf. „I‘m not your dancer“, singt Chrisi Schmid, der Sänger hinter dem mächtigen Synthesizer, der die Texte schreibt, ohne sie aufzuschreiben. „I‘m not your fucker.“ Ich bin nicht deine Marionette, du Clown. Das ist die Essenz des neuen Lo-Fat-Albums „LFO_09“, das acht Songs beinhaltet. Dass der Name des Albums genauso gut von einem Ufo stammen könnte, ist konsequent. Man muss nicht dazugehören oder cool sein wollen, um cool zu sein. Im Zweifel für den Zweifel. „I was afraid to talk to you“, singt Chrisi im Song „Sound“, und sein Synthie hüpft einen wilden Tanz. „I was afraid I won‘t like you. And I didn‘t want to be like you.“ Eine Gitarre braucht die Band noch immer nicht. Der Bass arbeitet für zwei (neuer Bassist ist Dominic Rubli). Schlagzeuger Daniel Zimmermann wechselt scheinbar mühelos zwischen Karacho, Balladeskem und Fliessband. „Love is for free“, singt Chrisi in der wundervollen Ballade „Good Times“. „This place is killing me.“

    CRUELSTER

    Lost Inside My Mind In Another State of Mind / The Singles Collection

    [engl] Cruelster are made up of members of Knowso, Perverts Again, and a plethora of other Ohio noiseniks. If it seems like you’ve seen that name before, it’s highly probable - they released a demo back in 2012 and have been sporadically dropping bundles of rough-edged sonic snot ever since, thanks to labels like Lumpy (whose own Dumpers are at the very least sonically adjacent) and Turbine Piss. This singles collection compiles all the non-album tracks they’ve released since that early demo to make a thrillingly ‘orrible racket. Twelve years’ worth of punk rottenness and general stupidity contained in 29 tracks and 40 noisy minutes. It is, of course, fucking brilliant. From the gleefully melodic dumbness (and Booji Boy-flavoured additions) of ‘My Embarrassment’ to the malevolent rumble of ‘Double Trouble’, not to mention a fabulously energised cover of Icona Pop’s dance-pop smash ‘I Love It’, every track here is a winner. It’s the perfect tonic for your rage and the perfect foil to a cruel world where everyone else’s disdain seems more pronounced than your own. You owe it to yourself to complete your record shelves with this instantly classic comp - it’s punk rock par excellence. And as for that ‘hating all music thing’... ah, who cares, this is all gold. Listen immediately, you’ll be causing chaos to its raucous brilliance before you know it.

On their second album “Uppercat” the trio explores more pop and nuanced sounds while retaining a good dose of energy and aggression.

A couple of these triumphant new epics are more than one minute in length so consider this their step up to Long Play maturity. Crawl Space has emerged from the basement and stepped into the daylight ready to stomp your ears out. This MLP is downright nasty.

Or rather perhaps involuting, due to an extreme elementality built from the purest lofi, in a precious and precise absolutely solo project, in which he has managed to gather and make work for him, that same muse that the Velvet used at the end of the 60s, and the one who now, more than 50 years later, is able to inspire an essential line up like The Shifters, to create SOCIETY, something new and wonderful that we didn't even know we needed, but that now after listening to it we wouldn't know how to live without.
