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:

together w/ Eternal Laser we are going to present another La Luz show this fall. this time together with California Burger/ Bachelor recording artist Peach Kelli Pop.
both bands played the Arena last year – La Luz opening for Sebadoh, Peach Kelli Pop at the infamous Dreiraum. and both put records out this year: Peach Kelli Pop earlier – the LP III (Bachelor/ Burger) and La Luz in August, an LP called Weirdo Shrine (Hardly Art).
here’s La Luz most recent video – called Black Hole, Weirdo Shrine –>
show takes place at the Rhiz on September 29, 2015.

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.
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.
you’ll find artist descriptions on the Festkakao 2015 wordpress page.

Cry Baby is a band found somewhere around summer 2013 with members Minki Mumu, old Fettkakao friend and helper Agnes Aye, as well as already known Fettkakao recording artistes Marti Fati of Goldsoundz and Nicoletta Hernández, who’s also playing in Lime Crush.
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.
the e.p. consists of 3 songs – featuring then also member Veronika Eberhart, who played Drums, Keyboard – and whom you can hear singing backing vocals as well.
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.
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!

i am a fan of Totally Wired for a longer time already. and the label would be unthinkable without Dot Dash.
I don’t really remember how i got to know them all. it must have been Kathi i have met first – during a punk show at the fluc. weeks later she asked me if i wanted to hang some screenpinted (fettkakao) covers at the LOVE_ gallery – a place run by Kathi and her friends then. there i was introduced to almost all DD members, but neither DD nor Totally Wired was around then. they had this really wonderfull gallery – a place i would come visit, hang out at – or organize exhibitions / shows there myself. i felt connected to them immidiatelly.
Totally Wired curated an evening during the Fisch-Fest at the Bach in November 2013. Dot Dash presented their second LP – and even though i have seen them perform many times – it was there that i wished them to do s/t with me. they recorded Evil for the Sampler – and some weeks later Seasick and Slide for this 7″.
(rough dots, without dashes, different colours)
the 7″ will be presented at the Celseste tomorrow evening, an early show (be there at 8PM – it is over by 10PM), we have a limited amount of colored vinyl available, and as seen before, the dots on the cover differ as well.
you can listen to the 7″ here, via bandcamp.
the sampler is out for some weeks already. it features artistes around the label – but mostly people i work with on a regular basis – or just encountered at a moment; people i find interesing, friends. as always: i try to hold on to a moment for a little longer by capturing it.
after having presented the compilation in Graz and Vienna – we are now off to a little germany tour w/ Just Friends and Lovers, Goldsoundz and Tirana.

in a few days Lime Crush! – a band i am in (and beeing creative with – this wasnt happening in over a decade) will play with F.Y.P at the Arena. F.Y.P perform only in four places in europe during the Toys That Kill tour they are having at the moment. so it is a rather special event folks.
F.Y.P played at the EKH in vienna in 1997. it is one of the numerous shows i missed out on. i dont mind having missed Hot Water Music around that time – since i saw them a few years later a – lot. but i wish i was at the Pee-Chees, Unwound and Sleepy Time Trio shows that took place around that time. those bands are long gone, as is the TU Club where almost all of those shows happened (if not at EKH). it was at the very center of vienna, where we hang out skateboarding before shows. i really enjoyed the TU Club time.
i got the chance to see F.Y.P in Los Angeles when we were US – trippin with Plaided in september 2012. and i think their show was a one timer as well. it was in the backyard of a coffee house kinda place; one of the Black Fag members was taking the tickets at the door. we had to party through a Recess Records line up (w/ Four Letter Words & Audacity ) before F.Y.P played my late adolescent soundtrack. it was so good that even Veronika of Plaided got turned on F.Y.P and Toys That Kill immidiatelly.
The shows at the Arena take place Monday (Toys That Kill + Bad Weed) and Tuesday (F.Y.P + Lime Crush).
i did two flyers last year to promote the happening (the tour was postponed to this year). which look like this:
there are two day tickets available for 12 € pre sales. the single tickets are 8 € pre sale, per night, €10 box office. so i would suggest to purchase the two day €12 tickets.
here’s also the mini Recess Records documentary. i watched it twice – thats how much i enjoyed it. (click on the picture to start it).
