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.
(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.

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.

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.

People tend to ask me why i started fettkakao and if i was playing in any bands. i always thought this was the initial reason to start a label: putting out your own records, something i myself did not do.
and even though – within the process of getting things done with my friends – i ended up playing instruments live and sometimes helping out on records; but it wasnt until i got to know Ilsebill and Veronika – and some years later that i would just sit and bang on the drums during a Plaided rehearsal to become a part of the writing process. these projects lived from appropriation, trying things out with your friends, no matter what others claimed.
in december 2013 i had the idea to start a band – with people i hung out at that time and thought are great: i asked Panini, whom i have seen in Aivery and played together with in Tirana, i asked Nicoletta who hung out a lot with us (and created the 2nd – now current homepage) and Veronika – with whom i have been to many places and involved with in just as many projects and situations.
Lime Crush: dedicated to punk, switcherous, and whatever we make it to be.
within 2014, we have been playing many wonderful places (without even a record out) and met a lot of interesting people. this is, given the work we put into it, rather liberating. and a proof that you can just do it.
the cover is a picture of an oil painting by Heti Prack, if you wondered. i know: a beauty.
we have recorded in the fall of 2014 with Chris Janka, and are now presenting a 3 song e.p. the release shows – yes two – take place at the Academy of Fine Arts (Atelier 219) january 22nd and at the Rhiz at Nil Desperandum febuary 6th; both in Vienna.
and here’s the official commercial made by Nick Prokesch, featuring Denice Bourbon!
Les Trucs release another 7″ with fettkakao. we are very pleased that they do so. The duo from Frankfurt is constantly performing / releasing and has a nice discgraphy, including two Albums which are just great. it is their 3rd time cooperating w/ the label: the first time was when they went on tour w/ Sex Jams in 2010 and came to celebrate our 5th year anniversary. Les Trucs did a split 7″ with Sex Jams. the second time was just recently, to contribute Fuchs Frisst Weltraum to the Sampler 2014.
their current record is a two song 7″ with Zur Situation von Konstruktionen b/w Les Mots Ètranges. we’ll offer/ sell only the A side digitally this time. Les Mots Ètranges can be enjoyed as the Vinyls B side.
Les Trucs are touring from tomorrow on, starting in Berlin. they will be doing 4 dates in Austria as well.

L I N K S:
just on a short note: we are booking shows by bands via Fettkakao that are important to us and would like to share with other people here in vienna.
for october we are presenting three shows:
1 Hornet Leg & Lime Crush / 2 La Luz & Sebadoh / 3 Tacocat & Tirana
Hornet Leg & Lime Crush
October 4th, 2014 || Celeste, Wien
Chris Suttons band, Hornet Leg from Portland, Oregon are coming to visit us at the Celeste in the 5th district. the Band describe themselves as “Nerds obsessed with Punk and Blues” on their facebook page. but you’ll turn into a nerd yourself with the list of projects – the bandmembers in Hornet Leg are involved with.
they have released an album and a 7″ on K Records; their current record, Still Life, was is available via StankHouse.
Lime Crush is a four piece from Vienna. they rehearse in Favoriten and are in the process of recording a 7″ for fettkakao.
ATTENTION SHOW STARTS EARLY!
since it has to be over by 10PM
Lime Crush is on stage at 8PM, Hornet Leg 9PM.
5 € pre sale / vorverkauf (wienXtra)
7 € box office
La Luz & Sebadoh
October 21st, 2014 || Arena, Wien
La Luz is a quartet, now also releasing on Seattle’s very own Hardly Art records. i also know of a tape (burger) and a 7″ (suicide squeeze). we had originally planned to do the show at the Rhiz, but the guys at the Arena were kind enough taking La Luz along to the bill w/ Sebadoh – who were booked for the same night here in vienna. glad this worked out.
17 € pre sale
20 € box office
Tacocat & Tirana
October 30th, 2014 || Fluc, Wien
Seattle’s Tacocat play at the fluc! after their debut Shame Spiral on Don’t Stop Belivin – a 7″ + LP (NMV) was released earlier this year via Hardly Art.
Tirana is known for having been one half of Plaided, for doing the soundtack to the movie talea – but most of all for her unique yet always changing set up and sound.
Cry Baby members Minki Mumu and Baby Jesus will Disc Jockey that evening.
we take donations at the door.
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).
