Milemarker are touring with their current record Overseas, playing a show October 11th, 2016 at the Rhiz. They have also just re-released their album Frigid Forms Sell with its iconic cover, which originally came out in 2000 on Lovitt Records.
Milemarker did Tour Europe extensively in the late 1990ies and early double O’s, visiting us in Vienna rather often. after the Band went on hiatus – follow up acts like Rah Brahs and Challenger continued with this tradition, making sure to leave a mark on us: the Viennese Band Sex Jams even named themselves after a Milemarker 7″ (the one with the Kraftwerk Cover).

Al Burian once did a show at the Dreiraum, Arena where i thought it would be a reading of his Book – the compiled Burn Collector – but instead it was a performance with no amplified instruments, or at least he did not use the PA. at the end, Al was handing out tape cases transformed into rattles and everyone in the room started rattling, calm and excited at the same time, until after 10 or so minutes the show fell apart.
this seemed so awkwardly spontaneous, it was one of the best experiences i had while attending a show.

Goldsoundz, the Styrian Supergroup (often w/ members of Just Friends and Lovers, sometimes Mile Me Deaf but always with Marti Farti) will perform as well. after a few cassettes on Wilhelm Show Me The Major Label, two 7″ e.p.s on Fettkakao and a great full length album on KIM as well as a single with Interpretations by Voodoo Jürgens – the band is playing finally in Vienna again!
