we are very lucky do be able to host a series of shows, that happen once a month at the Schönbrunner Straße 6 in Vienna.

schonbrunnerstrasse_6_acts_1

The small space, in Vienna’s center, offers exciting happenings: with the Vinylograph events where acts record live onto vinyl, to the Soundapotheke, Baustellebeschallung, early DJ nights and Fleamarkets, this place is just perfect for our early weekend shows.
YES. early. The perfomances start at around 7 and are over by 10PM.
entry? we will ask for donations.

Infinite Pal is premiering the happening. The follow up / side project to Crazy Bitch In A Cave was introduced during last years Electronic Spring & Popfest in Vienna; Nil Desperandum picked up on the act early, as well the Janka Studio Session, who filmed the Infinite Pal song ‘Apart’ (watch it here).

INFINITE PAL, live: March 17th, 2017

Marlo, who has released her debut Tape  “Implosion” via Epileptic Media in November 2016, will do the Performance show in April, the 21st to be more precise.

Using her laptop, guitar, violin and voice, Marlo crafts music in her bedroom, while her earlier tracks were mostly created on train rides.
Not only when making songs, but also in everyday life, she gets excited about occurring sounds easily, which – beside some curiousity for computers – results in a kind of experimental approach to this very personal project.
You can have a listen to it at: epilepticmedia.bandcamp.com/album/implosion

(beside Marlo, Marlene is also part of the Linz Trio La Sabotage!)

One out of two Kristy and the Kraks, Ana Threat is challenging the places of her performances as a solo artist: with two or no drums, sometimes long, repetetive patterns and almost always out on the floor – i can’t help but be exctited at her shows.
Ana Threat’s current record was released via Cut Surface in 2016. listen to Cold Lve via Bandcamp here.

The annual Girls Rock Camp had a party last Summer at the Rhiz in Vienna. As always, these shows are fun: short sets, new approaches to performances & many people i admire are attending too.

I’ve heard of La Sabotage: Bad Weed’s Phil was cheering during rehearsals of this new band they had just played with- and Dora of Schapka (Шапка) & Dives, who came to a show we did at the Performance Class party, told me of her friends doing these punk acts at Art Galleries, like we did that evening.

I made sure I’m not missing their show – but it seemed not neccesary to ask back if it was really them because the band i saw was just so good: you could tell they are exploring different motions, rhythms and soundlayers. Beats inspired by luggage rolling on the plastered pavement, low electronics set in to boost the sound; and with their singers performance La Sabotage turned the room into a dance party.

This band doesnt brag about their friendships, arent annoyingly friendly either. The trio is very Bold, knows what it wants, not short of any yes or no – and make things happen. Yet they are friends and i find them very friendly, uplifting and enjoyable peers.

La Sabotage re-recorded Rabengasse, and put Mad on the flip. you can listen to their e.p. on Bandcamp now too:

 

 

If you are interested, you are able to witness their live shows here:

Febuary 25, 2017 @ Kapu, Linz w/ Gurr & Postman
March 04, 2017 @ Rhiz, Wien NIL DESPERANDUM w/Stefanie Sourial

Fettkakao is taking part in two seasonal markets this weekend. that’s why we have created this new pattern and format.

handtasche1

Small bags with a zipper, in a size to fit in yr drawing tools or whatever smaller items you want to carry. strengthened on the inside to make sure it is keeping things together.

We have used a few previous prints – like the primary color cube and the  fried potato ones – but came up with a new one this week: waving hands for solidarity, sticking together. somekind of wishful thinking for the future, 2017 and beyond.

It will premiere Saturday, December 17th at Size Matters with a literal Fettkakao (Hot Chocolate) made by Andi – plus also have it at the more complete booth (with Records and stuff) at Salon Schräg on Sunday (dec 18) as well!

The items in various designs will be available from the homepage on this weekend as well. if you are in a hurry though – don’t hessitate to write an email (andi –at — fettkakao — doooot- — com) – some designs can ship from friday on.

Calvin Johnson is touring at the very moment Europe again – this time under the moniker Selector Dub Narcotic.

selectordn_aries_2016

K released a CD two years ago with the title All You Friend’s Friends – where over 30 Pacific Northwest MC’s produced a Compilation with Samples from the (vast) K Records catalogue.
On his last tour, Calvin Johnson has been showing the All Your Friend’s Friends Documentary, featuring the Hip Hop artistes from the compilation.

His current record – This Party Is Just Getting Started was, in its major part, made in collaboration with Smoke M2D6 – who made all Beats on the aforementioned Compilation. You will find some familiar names on the Selector Dub Narcotic record as well- such as Ashley Eriksson (Lake), Chris Sutton (Hornet Leg, COCO) and Angelo Spencer among many others.


Together with La Castanya, K Records has co-released the new LP by spanish artist Aries.  Adieu or Die is  a “Unique Excursion into electronic: pop full of shiny harmonies, explosive beats and shimmering sounds“.

Both acts start their tour October 30, 2016, playing a show in Vienna November 3rd at the Celeste.

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!

I first saw Alte Sau perform at the K4 in Nürnberg, as we opened with Lime Crush for them. we have been aware of the trio, since their debut album was released earlier that year on Major Label.

altesau_nürnberg(Alte Sau, Nürnberg K4, September 4, 2014)

after some excting shows and dinners shared, we decided to document our little friendship in a classical way: with a split single.

the 7″ is out March 21, 2016.
look up your favorite record store or write us if you want a copy.
you can also pre order the 7″ from Flight 13 in germany.

Last year Tirana and Calvin Johnson did some shows together for a few days.
On the last day of the trip, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, Lime Crush joined the bill and played a full set for the first time.

Calvin Johnson, founder of K Records and best known for his projects Beat Happening, Dub Narcotic Sound System and the Hive Dwellers, is coming back to Europe again – performing solo. Lime Crush are joining him for a few more shows this time.


Calvin Johnson at Wohnzimmer Konzert Vienna, April 4, 2014

One of the latest K releases is the All Your Friend’s Friends Compilation [KLP255].
It is the brainchild of producer Smoke M2D6 and MC Eprhyme, who first came up with the idea to comb through K‘s catalog for samples that would act as the foundation for a collection of brand new tracks featuring MCs from Olympia and around the Northwest.

Calvin will bring a Documentary of the Compilation on Tour showing it at various places – also at the Mo.ë in Vienna on October 16.
All Your Friend’s Friends is a short film piece (20 mins.) documenting the creation of K Records North West Hip Hop compilation album by the same name, brought to you by Red Williamson and Newspin Films.
