Kai Viehoff / Killerlady / Jeans Beast / Killer / Zoul / Furunkel
We turned this old, partly abandoned house in Mönchengladbach into a pop-up venue for this quite unique Noise happening. Around 45 People then we had to close doors. Pawel, dear fella and host of this lovely Summer evening in July 2011, welcomed the people in the crowded hallway and showed them the way to the first act. Over a few missing boards the audience arrived the room where Kai Viehoff’s rarely seen video “Noitulove – Ein Mensch geht zurück” was screened. Without any hiatus Killerlady started his performance in a totally crapped room. Playing several keyboards while shouting and singing into a megaphone he stormed the top of this rubbish heap into an ever expanding wall of sound and noise. Then it was the audience to storm the top of the house to hear Jeansbeast playing an ambient tape improvisation in a garret covered in blue light. Afterwards the audience was squired two floors downstairs to the venue’s best preserved quarter: The smoking room. Killer started his very intimate performance with nailing two frames to the wall and then singing and playing on his organ a fazing, feedback-driven song, that ended when the last cold cigarette butt out of an ashtray was thrown across the room. One floor upstairs Zoul drenched the listeners in a wall of brash booms and screeching noises sounding out the limits of hearable frequencies. As Zoul’s concert took place in the most derelict room that actually faced the danger of collapse the spectators had to watch the concert from the staircase but just had to turn their heads afterwards to see Furunkel playing next door. The harsh and improvised drums and guitar-feedback performance was the first concert of this two-piece collaboration and the last of this trippy evening before the audience was guided out of the house to visit Mescalito Bar for some after-show drinks with us.
Thanks to all the people who visited the show and all the people who made this possible.
