EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN / LAMENT EUROPEAN TOUR November 15th, 2014 Prague – Retro Music HallOnce upon a time … Around  1980,  many  young, creative people  perceived  the  exceptional political  situation in West Berlin as normal; and one in which it also seemed that anything was possible. When Blixa Bargeld was asked whether he would perform at the “Moon” club on April 1, 1980, he agreed, dreamt up the band Einstürzende Neubauten, and then called a couple of friends. The band’s first lineup consisted of those musicians, who happened to be free that night: Blixa Bargeld, Gudrun Gut, N. U. Unruh and Beate Bartel. In 1981, Blixa Bargeld, N. U. Unruh and FM Einheit recorded an “inaudible” LP in a recording studio: Kollaps is a frontal attack on conventional listening habits of that time, which the mainstream had made deaf. For lack of money (among other reasons), the band’s range of instruments consisted of “found” and self-­‐built objects made of  sheet steel, drills, hammers, a “non-­‐voice” that plucked a text out of shreds of  German  words and  professional  studio  equipment,  which  was  consistently  used  despite  their  real attitudes toward technical modifications. Through this approach, the construct Einstürzende Neubauten has become one of the few German bands to […]

feat. STEVE SHELLEY (Sonic Youth) DEBBIE GOOGE (My Bloody Valentine) JAMES SEDWARDS (UK) Support Band: Please The Trees (CZ) 30.10., 8.00 pm Lucerna Music Bar. Tickets 750 CZK FOR TICKETS CLICK Ticketportal GoOut.cz Lucerna Music Bar Follow on Facebook Thurston Moore has been at the forefront of the alternative rock scene since that particular sobriquet was first used to signify any music that challenged and defied the mainstream standard. He is the founder and ringleader of Sonic Youth, the band that turned on an entire generation to the value of experimentation in rock n’ roll – from it’s inspiration to a nascent Nirvana to the their own Daydream Nation recording being chosen by the USA Library of Congress for historical preservation in the National Recording Registry in 2006. Thurston records and performs in a cavalcade of disciplines from free improvisation to acoustic composition to black/white metal/noise disruption. Along with his musical world he is involved with publishing and poetry, teaching writing annually at Naropa University, Boulder CO, a school founded by Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman in 1974. The Best Day is the first solo record since Thurston’s Demolished Thoughts (2010) with both the dynamism of thrashing electric guitars and blissful 12-string acoustic ballads. Most of the tracks feature […]

The Legendary Alfred Brendel Puts On a Cine-Meeting in Prague March 31 – April 7, 2014 The Austrian pianist Alfred Brendel, one of the most distinguished musicians of the 20th century, is also well known as a poet, essayist, and film connoisseur. He has given concerts in Prague many times. Last year, thanks to the kind invitation by Prague Music Performance Institute and Festival, we had a chance to see him in yet another role. In two lectures, he presented his two books about music: Schubert’s Last Sonatas, a APianist’s Alphabet. His serious as well as humorous insight into the world of music met with a most hearty welcome from both the general public and experts. Mr. Brendel is returning to Prague, this time to share his passion for movies. Again, by the invitation of Prague Music Performance, and in collaboration with Czech National Film Archives and the Austrian Cultural Forum in Prague, Alfred Brendel will personally introduce each of his 14 most favorite movies. He named his cine-meeting held in the Ponrepo Theater  between March 31 and April 7 “Between Dread and Laughter”. The grotesque, humor, dread and horror, and the combination of the artistry of the world’s major filmmakers […]

The band has a “double trio” line-up, as made popular by Crimson between 1994 – 1997. History and background Adrian Belew and Tony Levin joined King Crimson in 1981, giving birth to the 4th incarnation of the band, (alongside Robert Fripp and Bill Bruford). Pat Mastelotto joined in 1994, which started the double-trio phase that also included Trey Gunn. They last played together as King Crimson on a “retrospective” US tour in 2008, but haven’t played in Europe since 2003. Belew, Levin and Mastelotto still have a large influence on popular culture due in part to their critically acclaimed work with some of the world’s most influential artists, such as Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, David Sylvian, Talking Heads, XTC, Paul Simon, John Lennon, and NIN, etc. In 2009 Tony and […]
