kids. another fettkakao act is splitting up. after Spoenk now Seven Sioux call their quits. as Gerhard Stöger would say: again, after nineteen years! Gerhard remembered a show at the old flex in vienna; and i remember the story he wrote in austrias datum magazine 7 years ago, when Seven Sioux came back together – writing about the break up of the band, and how funny it is that they are back again.

(i stole that picture somewhere, not knowing who was taking it nor where or when)

when Seven Sioux was a band from Linz, from 1988 to 1994, i was a kid. i only started to embrace music from 1992 on; looking up to their peers played on MTV: Nirvana. as i grew older and into a really nice punk, hardcore… independent music scene, i only heard of Target Of Demand and the once so vital punk scene in Linz. i met Rainer somewhere between 1999 and 2000. i think i first saw him perform in Graz with Grant (where i was blown away by his stage presence) and was introduced to him shortly after by Thomas Reitmayer. in 2002 Rainer asked me to play bass (after Sushi of Holly May turned down the offer to play with them) in the then reformed version of Grant: Grant Royal. i was the happiest person for a while; my life took turns for the better at that point.

when Grant Royal split up in 2003 i was going different directions, again. but Rainer was always there. as a friend and person who understood and helped me in what i did. to this day.

it was a natural step to work with Seven Sioux when they came back together in 2005 – the same year fettkakao was found.

i was making new friends again and trying to drag them along to all the stuff my friends and me were just popping up with. like the show i really liked at the B72 in 2006. things were fresh, tight and spurring. and so punk.

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.
