Rare footage of Edwyn Collins, Nectarine No. 9, James King, Teenage Fanclub and Paul Quinn Music. Postcard Records.

*Available for 24 hours only*

https://youtu.be/1Q_fquVdffM

In 1992 Alan Horne and Edwyn Collins brought Postcard Records out of hibernation to release and album by Orange Juice and Paul Quinn.

In 1993 Postcard staged a series of events at the RAFA club and Tramway Theatre in Glasgow

Rick Walker filmed these events for a proposed documentary which never materialised. The footage remained unseen for nearly 25 years....until now.

Featuring Edwyn Collins, Nectarine No.9, James King, Teenage Fanclub and Paul Quinn.

Not as much time spent on this as it deserved so a little loose and ragged.

Verschwörungstheorien: Wer böse ist, dem glaubt man nicht

REZOs Artikel bringt interessante Punkte auf den Tisch. Sido hat sich spät und recht lasch von Verschwörungsmythenverbreitern distanziert. Der Umgang der Presse mit ihm, vor allem Bild, war jedoch nicht korrekt. In anderen Zeiten hätten wir vermutlich eher "Faul!" geschrien.

Journalisten können auch penetrante Fieslinge sein, solange sie Informationen beschaffen? Ein Clash zwischen Sido und "Bild"-Reportern zeigt: So läuft das nicht mehr.

Music Videos and Films by Mike Mills - YouTube

Mike Mills has directed the features Thumbsucker (film), Beginners (film) and 20th Century Women as well as Does Your Soul Have A Cold, a documentary about anti-depressants. He started his career as a graphic designer and music video director. Somehow, he was overshadowed by his Directors' Bureau colleagues Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry and never had his rich body of work released on a Directors' Series DVD. Re-watching his 25 years of clips for Frank Black, AIR, Les Rythmes Digitales, Blonde Redhead , The National and other musicians, we discovered many themes recurring also in Mills' features: sensitivity to coming of age issues, mapping of suburban geography, use of text, bold graphics and found photographic material. Oh yes, and wife Miranda July stars in one video. Here's a playlist of all of Mills' known music clips, plus an early documentary short about Ornette Coleman, a fictional short exploring suburban youth/musical culture and a film accompanying The National's 2019 album I Am Easy to Find. The latter features Alicia Vikander.

Christoph de Babalon played a brilliant solo A/V set at the first edition of sister festival Easterndaze x Berlin in 2016, where he also collaborated with Polish audiovisual crew WIDT. He and WIDT then developed the TEYAS project which was presented in 2018. For Televisual de Babalon has created this mix of dark ambient and breakcore, accompanied by stark visuals which orchestrate video noise.

Televisual | Christoph de Babalon [TVMIX01]

For the first in a series where we commission artists to make a mix of the music that inspires them to experiment, produce & create we invite Breakcore legend and CFET honcho Christoph de Babalon to delve deep into the crates.

Hailing from Hamburg, Christoph de Babalon has been an integral artist in the formation of Breakcore and Dark Ambient music. Following on from his seminal 'If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It' masterpiece, originally released on DHR in 97', his ever expanding catalog of beautifully twisted material continues to provide a modest insight into the introverted mindset of CdB.

The Stranglers - No Mercy From the Album Aural Sculpture

The purist fans who discovered the band in late 70s might frown, but the Aural Sculpture album was one of my favorites when it came out in 1984 (although other The Stranglers (Official) tunes like No More Heroes, Peaches, Golden Brown etc. also were playing on my tapedeck).
RIP Dave Greenfield.

Bureau Of Lost Culture - A Short History of Soviet Counterculture (26/04/2020)

At previous festival events we screened Andrey Airapetov's doc Critic about Russian rock journalist and cultural organizer Artemi Troitski and the short X-Ray Audio about how discarded x-ray plates became storage media for bootleg recordings in the Soviet Union. Bureau of Lost Culture's recent podcast interviews Troitsky about what counterculture meant in the Soviet Union and what it means today.

Was counterculture possible in the oppressive, repressive circumstances of the Soviet Union? Join us as we meet with broadcaster, author and cultural commentator Artemyi Troistsky - the 'Russian John Peel’ - to find out. We hear some entertaining, comical, tragic, moving and frankly strange storie...

Die Corona-Krise betrifft uns alle: Kreative, Produzent*innen, Filmschaffende vor und hinter der Kamera, Verleiher*innen, Filmfestivals und Kinobetreiber*innen. Während einige in dieser Krise vor der Insolvenz stehen, profitieren andere überproportional. Dazu gehören Netzprovider und Streamingdienste ebenso wie die Fernsehsender, die in Zeiten erzwungener Schließung von Kinos, Filmfestivals und anderen Kinokulturstätten ungeahnte Zuschauerzahlen verzeichnen.

MONOM Presents : Sonic Cinema in 4dsound Jan 24th - Feb 2nd Continuing our mission to explore the possibilities of spatial sound as an expressive medium, MONOM is excited to announce the launch of a new platform for storytelling: SONIC CINEMA. Cinema from the greek word kinema - to move. Since the invention of cinematic technology, which freed the image to move giving us the ability to bring our imaginations and dreams to life with unprecedented realism, Cinema has arguably influenced culture more than any other medium in history MONOM’s SONIC CINEMA will explore new form of cinematic experience - the Sonic Film. MONOM’s Sonic Films, which are an augmented sonic reality experience enabled by 4DSOUND's audio hologram technology, will provide a framework to create and tell stories that can directly reflect the detail and multidimensionality of human perception - one that is constantly moving and in flux. Working without defined boundaries of the visual sense, this pure sonic experience opens up new realms of possibility for narrative creation and embodiment where the only limit is the imagination. Parallel to CTM Festival 2020 – Liminal, MONOM invites the listener to sit on the threshold between the real and the imagined, providing an opportunity for deep awareness of the present moment: a liminal zone - a ‘space of possibles’ where spatial sound fundamentally alters the ways stories are told and experienced. The program will present Sonic Films that will sit beside AV experiences, meditations and art installations that explore the liminality of perception. _______ TICKETS snip.ly/9d8tuh Use the code CTM_0202 at checkout to receive a 20% discount.
