KONZERT STARTS AT 9H30!
A gang of stylish demons discover a wild animal pacing around a Berlin cellar, wearing only a hawaiian shirt and someone else’s blood. It doesn’t know what day it is, just that it went to a party several months ago and hasn’t been to sleep since. They lovingly rescue and rehouse the wretched creature in a glaas box where it contents to howl its paranoid chants all day for their entertainment and now ours.
Laying out a mangled inventory of fractured memories, haunted visions of broken people and places making a sacred ritual out of ruining themselves GLAAS are creating hymns to so many nights gone so far wrong, from the graveyard sex to the extra bump you might have resisted had the urge to feel something not overtaken you… Employing an elevated and reinvigorated version of the ‘modern post punk with anarcho flourishes’ mode, with whirring synthesisers and creepy keys signpost into even more disorienting territory, GLAAS create a creepy and compelling soundtrack to the romantic nihilism of urban decay: disturbing lifestyle choices but make it sexy.
GLAAS is emerging from the creative and gerne-bending Berlin d.i.y. scene, with members from all over the planet. Five humans from five different places with similar political and artistical ideas is what shapes their noisy and bleak Post-/Anarchopunk sound.
Members of Exit Group, Idiota Civilizzato, Puff, Das Das, The Shocks, Nylon Club, Life Fucker, Cage Kicker, Cosey Mueller, Lacquer and many more….
ZANJEER is a punk band from Bremen, Germany. The band was formed in 2020 with the intention of playing uncompromising political punk influenced by bands like Sial, Fertil Miseria, Ratos de Porao etc with lyrics in Urdu, Punjabi and Farsi – languages native to Pakistan, India and Iran. The members come from parts of the globe namely Colombia, Pakistan, England and Germany.
The band is comprised by veterans in their respective scenes, involved in acts such as Inferno Personale, Ex-dom, Cataphiles, Amenazas, Muro, Huffin Paint, Beast as God, Multinational Corporations and Dead Bhuttos. With each member bringing their own vastly different experience, influence and expertise to the table, Zanjeer stays poised to be a relevant act for the current hardcore punk landscape – giving a necessary window into the lives of people from the global south.
Their debut EP “Parcham Buland Ast” contains 6 tracks in 8 minutes, sending the listener into the chaotic world of religious extremism, violent post-colonial nationalism, crumbling environment and economic destruction. Lyrically and musically, this project seeks to narrate the frustration, the anger, and the hatred born out of systematic and consistent oppression.
