We are excited to celebrate 35 years of Teen-Beat Records at the GrillX, Central Vienna, with live appearances by Mark Robinson, Cotton Candy (featuring Evelyn Hurley of Blast Off Country Style!)  and the screening of Amateur On Plastic, a documentary about Washington, D.C.-area musician Butch Willis and his band the Rocks.

Teen-Beat has been a major influence in founding, and by its appearance guiding Fettkakao as a label. We are very happy to be able to host the anniversary in Vienna.

The event will be accompanied by Disc Jockeys Monsterheart, sissiboy (of Sissysound Record Store!) & andi fettkakao.

 

January 19th, 2020 / GrillX, Petersplatz 1, Innere Stadt, Wien. >> event link.

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
March 11, 2017 @ Café Stadtbahn, Wien

and this is La Sabotage, to be found on the internet.

Fettkakao is now, at this very moment, turning 10.
It was in August 2005 that i have picked up the Vortex Rex 7″ (fett001) and Lonely Drifter Karen 10″ (fett002) records together with my father from the pressing plant in the Czech Republic. We stuffed the Car with Vinyl, my father helped translating conversations with the woman from GZ Digital and back we went.

The launch party nevertheless only took place on September 30, 2005 at the EKH, with Räuberhöhle, Spoenk, Redhead Army and Vortex Rex.

We had Festivities since then for jubilees – Veronika gave it the name Festkakao –  in 2008 for the 3year anniversary and in 2010 for 5 years. and even though we were counting and celebrating year by year with events like special radio performances, small shows or compilations, i only wanted to have another Festkakao for a 10 year party.

festkakao_flyer

The Festkakao 2015 will take place in various locations around vienna. Starting September 7th at SIZE MATTERS, a small gallery showing art by Heti Prack, Christian Egger, Patrick Weber, Veronika Eberhart – as well as a performance for the Vernissage by Brooke’s Bedroom.

2 days later, September 9th, we’ll have a DJ night at the Elektro Gönner with Melanie Friedl, Andi Fettkakao and Stefanie Sourial performing live.

On September 10 we will show My Secret World – The Story of Sarah Recods (by the way it operated, Sarah was a big influence to Fettkakao) at the Schikaneder. Costa Caspary is going to DJ later there too.

And then there are shows the next day,September 11, taking place at the Arena on an open air stage outside and a punk party later at the infamous Dreiraum. with Priests from Washington DC, Dubais, Lime Crush, Crazy Bitch in a Cave, Ana Threat, Goldsoundz and DJs Mayr & Sassy Boy!

for the last day we’ll have an easy party going on at the Fluc, with Gran and Cry Baby performing live, Dubais aka Selecter Spliffster Nancy and Phil Spass playing canned songs.

the Band recorded their debut 7″ last year w/ Christian Sundl (aka Turbo, Wilhelm Show Me The Major Label) on a very hot summer day.

Nadia ran into us at last years Creepy Teepee in Kutná Hora – right before we went on stage w/ Lime Crush. she was looking for a time table / the place she’s supposed to play. i don’t even know why i remember that, it was remarkable though. some hours after our performance, Dubais played this intense show at the indoor venue; people dancing all around her. i checked if my band was around for witnessing this. Dubais last song – i Dont Want to Die (I’m Going to Kill You) – had the same refrain as our last song (I Dont Wanna Die Alone). I looked acroos the room to Veronika, our jaws dropped.

here’s a picture from after the show. Lime Crush and Dubais, excited.

Dubais_LC_KH

months later Nadia was in Vienna for the Wiener Kopulationsring Ball – Queer Boobs and Balls Against Fascism at the Hofburg, we couldnt go, since the 9th year anniversary show took place the same night at Fluc. but Dubais stayed for a couple of days. i guess that’s where we became friends. she was introduced to Fettkakao by Cordula and some time later we decided to work on a 7″ together.

the two songs on the single were recorded some time ago. i knew i wanted I Don’t Want to Die to be on the 7″ – the second song i chose is I’m No Good, which was co-written by Chris Sutton – whom we’ve met when he visited us w/ Hornet Leg.

the 7″ is out Aprill 11 – it will be presented at Nil Desperandum at the Rhiz. Nadia is doing more shows before and after that in April, presenting the single. she will also DJ with me at Elektro Gönner and play two shows together w/ Lime Crush in Austria.

the cover is a picture of a wooden tooth made by Casey Brown. it was layouted with the very kind help of Patrick Anthofer. thank you!
oh and the songs were mastered by Martin Siewert in Vienna as well. thank you too!
