På vift tour: The Kurws | 29.90 | Målgrupp
+ Back At Sea
KURWS [Poland / Sweden]
(the) Kurws formed in May of 2008 as a spontaneous consequence of a ping-pong session, which descended underground and remains there until today. They drew on influences arising from punkrock as well as rock n’roll tradition, garage/surf, krautrock, rotten funk, no wave or the British postpunk scene. The Kurws is punk, afflicted by the postmodernist curse with all of its benefit of inventory, where things are being born out of fusion and deconstruction. From an ambition to remain fresh and organic. At the same time it’s still an ordinary garage band, which brazenly takes the risk of collective improvising without proper musicianship, quietly dismissing the embarrassment of discredit. Their debut album “Dziura w getcie” (“Hole in a ghetto”) was released overseas.
“Shades of Ex-Models, Captain Beefheart, and Weasel Walter bands. All instrumental, serious, but not pretentious, fun, but not silly. Basically, my favorite type of rock band.”
Målgrupp (swedish for selected group) is not a band and it’s not a solo project or an art project. The founder is Julian Murray but the people who have been involved are various individuals who bring their own expression to the sphere of the constantly evolving collective with DIY queer punk attitude and half living instruments & electronics in a situation of a stage performance, we try to get closer to the core of exploitation, decay and precarious situation in the contemporary time. With simplicity pin it down and re-form it in to a hopeful, rhythmical cry out through industrial beats, sequencers, trumpets, delay racks and a will to express ourselves with our bodies and minds.
Fanzine-, LP- and cassette-releases, exhibitions, performances and workshops are ways in which our thoughts have been expressed since the we started 2006. The debut split album “the young ones boogie” with the swedish act Silver Arken is at the record press as we read and is suppose to be released in early 2013 on the label “Alltid hela tiden”, and 2 cassettes on the labels “på månen” and “flacon”.
29:90 (Stockholm) invites you to their intimate world where they try to tame their instruments in dark and joyful play. The music is a rough sounding machine like rhythm where african bells and tomtom drums bounces on top of high pitched voices with live dubbing, singing babbles, lalas and songs about school bullying, compulsive behavior and the texture of an abusive tongue. This is Lotti Solovitsky and Nini Maakestads form of expression. From the moment Nini and Lotti decided to make music together spring 2012 they got so eager that they took their ﬁrst chance to get started, a small room they had access to from 9 in mornings til noon. The world of expressions brought them together and grew stronger during early morning rehearsals before work.
Inﬂuences among others are Jun Togawa, Cold Wave, DIY and Avant-garde music from the late 70’s and 80’s. Their ﬁrst gig was in the autumn 2012 supporting Italian duo Trouble V’s Glue for club Mother in Stockholm and they released a cassette that same night. This year they plan record and release a full length LP.
Back at Sea [Germany]
