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!
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.

kiddo- i havent been writing here since the A Thousand Fuegos digital release in August. i was busy with presenting output by my friends now and i am not sure if you have heard of the releases yet. at the end of a year i am trying to think and look back, even though i feel like it has been only a couple of month.
today’s the annual tweety party in Graz. and among the countless bands that are performing are my friends Goldsoundz, who have released a 7″ on fettkakao 11 days ago. it is called The New Ones? / National Eagles (fett034) and consists of 3 songs.
on the cover: ex-and cofounding member Karli:
Marti was chasing his friends around in Vienna and Graz – yet even on the country side. always with a camera in his hands – the video to the song The New Ones? was made.
____Crazy Bitch In A Cave_______ Rear – View Mirror_______ (fett033)____
earlier this year, in November, Crazy Bitch In A Cave had his very first fettkakao release out. finally. CBC has a tradition with fettkakao: he was producing the Albino Rabbits 7″ by Brooke’s Bedroom, did a BB cover for the Fettkakao Sampler 2011, was with us on the trip to Košice in 2010, and performing at this years fettkakao homepage launch party as well as at the labelshowcase at Röda in Steyr.
Crazy Bitch In A Cave has a very nice homelabel though: Comfortzone. it is run by the fabulous Christina Nemec who has released a 12″ e.p. (on top – sooo good!) – and an album.
so for the little excursion to fettkakao we did a 7″ –> Rear-View Mirror – with run of 200 copies. a few came in white vinyl even (still have a few lying around – let me know if you want one).
Nick also did an amazing commercial for the album. it is all eyes, make-up and a rear-view mirror:
2013 was a good, a very good year even.
i am going backwards. before the Crazy Bitch In A Cave release – i had this exhibition in Oktober at the Schikaneder in Vienna, where i showed my (watercolour) flyers for the first time outside the digital world. also this fall: the label had two wonderfull showcases – one at the Bach in Vienna in November and one at the Röda in Steyr in September. i love having showcases.
at the beginning of September the homepage finally got a new face after 8 years. thank you so much nici ( ❤ ) in case you havent seen it yet: clickie!
in August we finally did the digital release of the selftiteled A Thousand Fuegos LP (fett010).
Plaided had their last travels and shows in summer as well. a nice good bye with a loong drive to Switzerland and the Poolbar festival. a hello to the Café Else in Vienna, where Plaided did their last show for the opening of that wonderfull bar. i have really good memories of Plaided – performing at the Donauinselfest, Akademie der Bildenden Künste Sommerfest and Popfest in vienna that summer as well. oh i miss that constilation so much.
and what a year it had been for Tirana. a 7″ called Talea (fett031) came out – named after the La Banda movie – where Veronika wrote most of the soundtrack. i have good memories of shows after screenings and premieres of the film in theaters; and the first screening of Talea at Kino Unter Sternen in Vienna. what a wonderfull summer.
the only Longplayer this year that came out was the album What, Colour? (fett032) by Just Friends and Lovers. a little beauty that counts 13 (!) songs. the only trip i had with JFaL this year was to Krakow in June (i wish i was with them on the east european tour they did in Oktober w/Robotra). the other times i had seen them was in Vienna and Graz (do i remember it well? was the Lendwirbel showcase Fettkakao shared with Numavi records their release show as well?!) (but that was a hell of a weekend!).
Just Friends and Lovers, Turbo and part time host Marti in Krakow.
and then the year 2013 ends (or begins) with the exciting, 2nd Plaided trip tp the US – with shows in Boston and NYC (w/ Japanter) and a very hot spring in Austin, TX at the SXSW festival in March (wordpress entry on thaaat), and before that a really nice fly-over to the Damnably showcase in London in Febuary.
i hope 2014 will bring as much excursions, releases and parties as in 2013. it has a good start though – with a little travel to Groningens Eurosonic – where Tirana will perform, and a 7″ by Just Friends and Lovers in Febuary…
a happy new year to you folks – and i try to keep up with the talk here – on the wordpress blah-blog.

remember when i started this blog? this was only last year! i cant believe it. feels like if been typing in this wordpress blog not too often, but for ages. and yes. it is a good feeling since i always think to myself –whoa another year past by already?
the pop quiz thingie happenend at the wonderfull club d’hommage, our favorite indie club in vienna. the part i like most is putting together a team and do all the fun stuff. preparing, posing… things like that.
(pic taken by john, thank you!)
we were almost nine people. kids: nine is the new magic number! not eight. at least when it comes to social catherings. this years TM fettkakao consisted of (f.l.t.r): matthias (a thousand fuegos) marti farti (wilhelm show me the major label, goldsoundz.. ) clemens (black fox tropikal), äh (me), martin pieper (brooke’s bedroom), valerie (team fettkakao!) and patrick (the mighty crazy bitch).
a wonderfull team. and i know we would have been #1 if melanie and cordula werent cancelling last minute, hihi.
the questions? the answers? dont know. those heads are big and i knew right away that we are doing good. hey. i like my friends a lot, not because they know so much (or dont), but it fills me with pride and joy sitting right next to them listening to words i cannot fully comprehend.
we were ex aequo with rudi (number two or three), who was his very own team. unbeliveable. i was so impressed by rudi that i forgot the winning teams name. a big team by the way and formerly known as sacrifice the liver, who are always #1!
(rudi and me w/goodie bags. yellow vs green, picture taken by valerie)
we werent the best? fok eat, who cares ❤

thanks clubdhommage and all the people around. we love you pop quiz!
you may have noticed that the Goldsoundz are releasing a 7″ on yours truly: fettkakao. the band arose out of Wilhelm Show Me the Major Label – their homebase in Graz, Austria. when marti asked me if i wanted to release a single two years ago, i wasnt quite sure. things needed to grow between us, like with any good relationship. a lot of good things have happened since then, and we all became friends.
the Goldsoundz are presenting their masterpiece, a three song seven inch today at the nachtasyl in vienna. on thursday, the day before the show, things came together: we received the 7″es from bieber and christian/ Flight 13 Duplication just in time (i am so happy and love them for the fact that they are never late, in fact : both do everything they can to make a release show happen with the actual record), matthias (A Thousand Fuegos) took time to enlighten the screen (i know how busy you are at the moment. thank you!) – so that the Goldsoundz and fettkakao party could do the rest: cut paper, screenprint colours onto paper, fold it and put the rocords together.
here’s how the finished print (artwork created by the great Werner Bauer) looks like:
and since prining is fun – marti farti tried to ducument it w/ some pictures he took from our little party with beer, chocolate and acryl paint. oh. for the release shows we printed some covers with mixed colours as well. very rare… äh. here are martis pictures anyway.
ah and yes, the shows:
°nachtasyl, vienna march 16th (friday)
°waakum, graz march 21st (wednesday)
bleep. and every little release has a propaganda video (fkkp2, made by nick prokesch + andi dvorak):
and a real video! made by the Goldsoundz and turbo of WSMTML fame!
lalalala… hope to see you here today (early show: starts at 8pm and ends at 10pm!)
