woha.

FM4’s soundpark is celebrating its 10 year annniversary; the studio2 session round 20. and we are invited for the party!

i dont know if clemens (cool kid & curator of the studio 2 sessions) knows how much the session means – at least to me. after i started fettkakao, and ilias seayou with Go Die Big City a little bit later – it was one of the first things we did all together – with almost everyone involved who released records on either the one or the other label. early 2006 Go Die Big City shared an evening at the studio2 with Luise Pop – and there we were: matthias of A Thousand Fuegos, anna of Paper Bird, anna and rudi as the core of GDBC, ilias of Vortex Rex, me the fettkakao and stefanie. something has happened there. people have heard of us, and i think we learned about ourselves a little bit too.

one year later, 2007, A Thousand Fuegos was playing the studio 2 session (with a reduced, similar line up as GDBC –> video), 2010 Lonely Drifter Karen.

the special thing about this years FM4 soundpark studio2 session is -that there will be three sets of people/artist/ “collectives” that have been part of the soundpark sessions and/ or represent scenes where a lot of different people are involved. invited are the really cool SK Invitational from linz – who represent as a big band the well known hip hop scene not only of that city – and patrick pulsinger – an austrian all star – who was never limited to any scene or sound (patrick produced the Brooke’s Bedroom 12″ for fettkakao btw).

seayou and fettkakao was asked to present the little scene we are involved with – and to bring up some projects – which we are indeed used to, where some are helping others out – and /or create art together.

of course i dont want to spoil everything here – but it will be a rather interesting set inkluding Vortex Rex, die Eternias, 8 Hours Manatee, A Thousand Fuegos, Mile Me Deaf & the Maximum Miracle Center (huhu w/ Sex Jams members!).

all of that will be broadcasted live from 7pm on tomorrow (oktober 26th,2011) on Radio FM4, and there will even be a video stream!

if you happen to understand the german language – you can read some here and here.

oh. and i visited the bands while rehersing today… and took some pictures.

it seems i never tell enough stories of our little trips. at least i dont write about them. last time we were trippin to the poolbar with mile me deaf… which became a hilarious party… i didnt take many pictures, except for this one on our way to the other end of austria, somewhere in between in tyrol at a gasstation.

then someone from the poolbar took this one (yeah thats me in the back, hihi):

and at the very end, 7 in the morning, i tried to document the trip to our hostel.

not to be seen on this picture is our friend matthias, a thousand fuegos headhoncho. he came by train to hang out and party with us – matthias even played a song with mile me deaf that evening. the poolbar is the best place for a party like we had (…) thank you philipp for having made this possible.

we really missed matthias last weekend at the pmk in innsbruck – when sex jams played a show with plaided – all under the moniker of a fettkakao label night. it was matthias’ birthday, so we took some gang pictures as a present. this is one of the nicer ones. and a good start for a nice evening.

i did not take pictures (again) of the great sets both bands did – nor do i have some from the party that happen later on.

after a little sleep depriviation (i get used to share sleeping places w/ the jamz) we had a great breakfast with our friend beate who did the show at the pmk. thank you beate!

then we had to split. sex jams went to esslingen to play the komma fest, and i drove with plaided to the fluff fest, to meet our czech friends from the am180 collective. hello tomas (and me again with bad looking hair…)

hanging out in the rokycany airfield. julja took this one. hello (other) tomas. hehe.

plaided shared the tent set with the great tempelhof and jef barbara (picture).

the next ones a good one (the other) tomas took. it captures the feeling i had during their set. plaided fit so well to the fluff fest…and even though their snare broke during the set it was one of the most energetic shows i have seen so far.

thanks to jakub and stepan for the invitation!

with only a little sleep, lots of kilometers, and a stressy moment  (i drove into the mudd with my VW polo – and couldnt move the car until we asked a nice family to help us to pull out the car) – this was a very exciting and spurring experience. thanks to everyone involved.. and. it felt good to meet so many old and new friends… piep.

when i did the 5 year fest last september – Rainer Krispel asked me if there would be a compilation along to the fest. no there wasn’t one. and with a reason: i did not want to try to capture something that seemed so alive to me – alive like the fest was. 10 days w/ exhibitions + shows at different places in vienna, so many acts… so many nice people coming and sharing. i thought i had documented a lot of  the music anyways –  with all the 7″e.p.’s, LPs and CDs released.

some months later the idea of doing a compilation made sense though. not for a jubilee, not for showing what this label has put out so far – but the people around me, with their great ideas.

everyone contributed songs never released before (or at least not in these versions). most recorded exclusively for this piece of mini plastic. i loved how Paper Bird and Crazy Bitch In A Cave came up with the idea to cover their partners or boss song (both on the label) – or TIRANA completing a song for the compilation, Vortex Rex doing it last minute, Sex Jams going different directions for it etc.

i am really thankful to all artistes involved. for making it such a great record.

here’s what it looks like. my old friend Lisa Max did it in Perth Australia, where the summer comes to its end finally.
