BETTINA KÖSTER (GER)
In 1979 Bettina Köster and Gudrun Gut opened the Eisengrau store in Berlin, a meeting point for the local underground and venue for exhibitions, concerts, super 8 films, machine knitted sweaters and a cassette label of the same name, which released r...ecordings of "genius dilettante" groups Einstürzende Neubauten, Die Tödliche Doris, Frieder Butzmann and Köster and Gut's own band Mania D (with Beate Bartel of Liaisons Dangereuses). All these groups were at the time pushing the definition of music to its limits, creating new forms and unheard sounds within a self-organized network. Mania D later became Malaria!, known for great songs like "Kaltes Klares Wasser" or "Your Turn to Run". In recent years Bettina has played with New York's The Vanishing and Autonervous. In 2009 she released her first solo album "Queen Of Noise". Don't miss this very special performance!
MITTLAND OCH LEO (BE)
Mittland och Leo is a duo consisting of Antwerpian Joke Leonare and Milan Warmoeskerken. They create instrumental songs with melancholic organ and Casio sounds, echoes and a rhythm box. The music sits seemingly simple in another, perhaps the reason why their psychedelic organ exotica sounds so refreshing. Their debut 7” has been released on Ultra Eczema.
….Yes, the orient is there in the DARK RIDE.
