Koloni presenterar: DON VITO (Leipzig) UPFALL (Fr) NJURMÄNNEN med UKON (Gbg) TV DINNER EDUCATION (Sthlm) WE LIVE IN TRENCHES (Gbg) + film, mat, bar Lördag 23/5 Kompani 415, DON VITO (Leipzig) Don Vito are a Leipzig three-piece that bash out playful and naive yet shrill and abrasive noise|rock. It sounds like the soundtrack to a cartoon children's disco in a steel factory. The moment Don Vito let a bit of chaos out of the sack all appendages within hearing distance begin to fidget hysterically. It is like being hit with the spray from a machine gun. Welcome the apocalypse of rock smiling at you from three lunatics who appear to thrash at their instruments more than to play them. But somehow they never loose continuity in this chaos of interwoven high speed-grooves. Don Vito does not need to follow the rules; the rules have learned to follow Don Vito. Remarkably, they are free from genre and categorization. They have delightfully blended post-puberty carelessness with just a touch of self-irony. From now on, you will no longer have to think of that brainless wanker from Jackass when you hear the name Don Vito, but rather of that kick-ass band from the bowels of Germany. http://donvito.bandcamp.com https://www.facebook.com/donvitorockt https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXfAIjMQVQY ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Njurmännen med UKON Sedan starten i Linköping den 23 september 1984 har Njurmännen varit en integrerad del av den elektroniska musikscenen i Sverige. Bandet har gått igenom flera faser, och antalet medlemmar har genom åren växlat. Bandets grundare, Anders Göransson och Magnus Axelsson, hänger dock fortfarande med, och efter flera år tillsammans med Bo Wieslander och Jonas Ingvarsson kan man nog säga att denna kvartett utgör en slags kärntrupp. UKON är Ulf Karl Olof Nilsson, poet och psykolog. Han har sedan debuten 1990 gett ut ett stort antal diktsamlingar, varav en, Synopsis, blev nominerad till Augustpriset 2008. Förra året kom hans debutroman Jag befinner mig i ett överflöd av kärlek, vilken handlar om Henrik VIII. Njurmännen och UKON har under de senaste tio åren genomfört en rad framgångsrika samarbeten. När de nu har blivit inbjudna att gästa Koloni kommer de att bjuda på ett axplock av sina alster, både de renodlat musikaliska och den speciella variant av text/ljudkompsitioner de har utvecklat tillsammans med UKON. Njurmännen vill också påminna sin publik om att metamorfosen inte är förändringen i sig, utan endast ögonblicken före och efter. "UKON och Njurmännen har gjort årets svenska cd." - Kjell Alinge ”De här Njurmännen är faktiskt skitbra!” - Christian Cavallin https://njur.bandcamp.com https://soundcloud.com/njur http://youtu.be/CpZbgkTsD9c http://youtu.be/N0gyd023-GQ -------------------------------------------------------------------- TV DINNER EDUCATION (Sthlm) Broken harmonies played on an oddly stringed toy guitar. Up tempo slap-back delay with jazzy-punky drum beats relayed through contact-mics. Pitched vocals and circuit-bent synthesisers recorded onto cassette tapes. Lotti Sollevi (drums and vocals) & Julian Murray (guitar and vocals) are as influenced by the American No Wave scene as they are by European New Wave, and are drawn to traditional musical experiments from every corner of our world. Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Non Band, Renaldo and the Loaf, DNA and the releases of the Sublime Frequencies label, to mention just a few. TVdE goes from minimal groove hits, to abstract blips and onto pitch-bended ballads with dada lyrics. A third member of TVdE is Peter Larsson, who adds live visuals. Colourful, abstract and "comic like" projections that interacts with the musicians and stage sculptures. In spring 2015 TVdE will release their debut on 10” vinyl which will be a five track DIY recording via the labels Hockey Rawk and Oma333. Recorded by Linus Hillborg (Saigon) and mastered by Jonathan Dakers. links: https://soundcloud.com/tv-dinner-education http://www.peterlarsson.se https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaDxQ84XYP8 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- WE LIVE IN TRENCHES (Gbg) We Live In Trenches could well be the bastard offspring following a messy tryst involving The Rollins Band, Big Black, and Dead And Gone, such is the deep-rooted intensity that permeates each and every track on the band’s second album, Life crisis. The record pulsates with a nihilistic thunder, topped off with a bear-like growl exuding a rib-crushing threat which keeps me in a state of high alert throughout. The songs benefit from being well structured and, therefore, do not fall into the trap of getting lost in a repetitiveness that would dull its impact. Surprisingly, I quite enjoy listening to this in a relaxing bath! –Rich Cocksedge, Razorcake http://weliveintrenches.bandcamp.com/ www.facebook.com/weliveintrenches http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4zCVZ3lR7s -------------------------------------------------------------------- Arrangemanget görs i samarbete med ABF Göteborg ---------------------------------------------------------------------
