Czech electro-industrial / EBM group formed in 1989 by Daniel Rodn\u00fd and Samir Hauser, in 1997 joined by Miroslav Pape\u017e.

Postpunková temně gotická Čínská čtvrť vznikla roku 1988, když na inzerát Daniela Rodného hledajícího zpěváka pro zamýšlenou kapelu ve stylu Joy Division a raných Cure odpověděl Samir Hauser. Vlastně místo odpovědi hodil do schránky svoji fotku (která se kupodivu dochovala).

Oba měli za sebou punkovou minulost, slovo dalo slovo a tak vzniklo jedno z výrazných seskupení tzv. "strahovské scény", uměleckého společenství okolo Klubu 007.

Zvuku dominovaly chmurné klávesy, nahallená kytara a ponuře tragický vokál, hudba navazovala na styl Joy Division, Fields of the Nephilim, Sisters of Mercy nebo Smiths.

Čínská čtvrť se účastnila společných akcí se spřátelenými soubory, mezi něž poatřily třeba Kurtizány z 25. avenue, Rány těla, Modrý tanky, Ecstasy Of St.Theresa, Jižní pól, Toyen, Jean Marais nebo Omnibus.Aktivně koncertovala až do roku 1990, kdy se oba zakládající členové začali naplno věnovat svému novému projektu, elektronické Vanesse.


Jedním z prvních počinů nově vzniklého vydavatelství Monitor (později EMI, dnes Warner Music) bylo kompilační LP Nové horizonty (1990).

Výběr kapel tehdejší "nezávislé scény" se natáčel ve studiu u Josefa Přiba na Kamplě.

Čínská čtvrť je na něm zastoupena skladbami "Někde je dno" a "Za zdí".




Target vznikl v roce 1992 jako vedlejší projekt elektronické Vanessy. Šlo o experimentálnější, posluchačsky nepřístupnější skladby, které se do tracklistu Vanessy z nějakých důvodů nehodily. Netradiční kombinace industrialu, elektroniky a scénické hudby byla k mání pouze živě. Nedílnou součástí byla i vizuální složka. Na velkoplošné projekci za scénou se vrstvily přelomové momenty válečných konfliktů, extatické tance Dervišů, autentické záběry z poprav, operací, pitev a kopulací.

V květnu 1994 Target vystoupil v pražském Edenu společně se spřátelenými The Legendary Pink Dots (předělávku jejich skladby „A Space Between“ Rodný zařadil do repertoáru Vanessy).

Po rozpadu původní skupiny Vanessy se Target na 25 let odmlčel. Znovu vystoupil až v listopadu 2019 v pražském klubu Fatal. Původně mělo jít o krátký set několika starých tracků "pro nostalgiky". Zoran Stehlík týden před plánovanou akcí onemocněl, Rodný se za něj pokusil sehnat náhradu a dopadlo to tak, že tři dny před vystoupením vznikla nová sestava:

- Kryštof PeterkaImmunology
- Martin Kadnár ze Zputnik
- Vít Chabera aka PcbFlare
- Daniel RodnýVanessy

Elektronická skupina, produkující agresivní syntezátorový rock ležící někde mezi německou elektro-scénou, gotickým post-punkem a americkými progresivisty. GD lze považovat za jedny z průkopníků skloubení elektroniky a tanečního rytmu u nás. Hudebně se jedná především o dialogy překrabičkované kytary se syntezátorem na základě syntetických zvuků rytmiky, napsal Josef Zub Vlček v Rock&Popu (1990). A pokračoval: V podvědomí muzikantů je uloženo neustálé vědomí přítomnosti rocknrollu, čemuž Lou Reed říkal Rocknroll Animal, tj. směsice drzosti, výbušnosti a programového diletantismu.

V roce 1994 přišel Samir Hauser s novým projektem, chlapeckým duem 2 Amigos (spolu s Karlem Jarůškem).

Popovému publiku se snažil zalíbit stylizací do usměvavého světle oblečného hošíka a popěvky typu „Neztrácej čas, staň se hvězdou, která nezhasíná“.

Album doprovázel stylový videoklip:

 

Zpěvák, textař a provokatér Samir Hauser se narodil roku 1970 české matce a arabskému otci. Koncem osmdesátých let založili spolu s Danielem Rodným post-punkovou Čínskou Čtvrť a následně i úspěšnou elektronickou formaci Vanessa.

Skupina vznikla v roce 1991, kdy Miroslav Imrich (Abraxas, Tango) natočil album Who is Mečiar a začal s ním objíždět české a slovenské kluby spolu s Martinem Kadnárem a dvěma tanečnicemi. Po roce se přidal kapelník Vanessy Daniel Rodný a repertoár výrazně přitvrdil. V roce 1995 skupina vydala druhé CD Deflorace.

Jako formu vyjádření nepoužívají nejmodernější nástroje, ale spíše hledají nové způsoby, jak naložit s těmi starými. Filosofie projektu spolu s elektronickými přístroji Moimira Papalescu a saxofonem Petera Van Krbetze činí z Magnetik překvapivě mnohem víc než obvyklou postmoderní hříčku s označením retro projekt.

Za projektem stojí frontmani tří kontroverzních kapel:František Štorm z blackmetalových Masters Hammer, Samir Hauser z elektronindustriální legendy Vanessa a Řezník z horrorcore Sodoma Gomora. V roce 2015 natočili s producentem Johnem Fryerem album Necrotica, které obsahovalo 12 skladeb napříč zmíněnými žánry.

Die Alten Maschinen jsou ideologicky projektem o strojích, které jsou člověku přátelské. O technologiích, které nejsou hrozbou, ale mají lidstvu především sloužit a pomáhat. Je to také pocta všem snílkům, vynálezcům a spisovatelům prvních idealistických sci-fi, kdy snít o budoucnosti bylo přece ještě tak krásné. Za projektem Die alten Maschinen stojí Moimir Papalescu, Petr Venkrbec, kanadský zpěvák a bubeník Leon Stevenson z novovlnných The Extras a lídr legendárních Devo Gerald V. Casale.

E-clash, electropunk, odkazy na staré americké country, experimentování s digitální i analogovou elektronikou, temné postpunkové kytary. Strhující živá vystoupení plná punkové energie, masivního zvuku, electro beatu a syrového electro rocknrollu. Dokonalá vizuální image a projev zpěvačky La Petite Sonji. To všechno jsou Nihilists.

Skupina Majklův strýček (později M.O. a ještě později Michaels Uncle) vznikla v roce 1987. Zpočátku hrála temný postpunk, ve kterém později probleskovaly náznaky hardcore. Skupina se v roce 1995 rozpadla, ale od roku 2004 opět koncertuje.

Slovak Dark Electro/Ambient project

Czech "astral hardcore" band, that loves mysticism, absurdity and hates the herd morality.

Insania came to life in 1987 in Brno, Czech Republic (formerly Czechoslovakia). After several concerts the band was prohibited by StB (Secret State Police). Then the band continues to play under the mask name Skimmed and in 1990 releases the first independent LP in Czechoslovakia, "New Insanity".

In 1992 the band starts to be active under its original name Insania again and with a new line-up it releases the new demo "R.U.Dead?", then EP "Vertigo" in 1993 and the first CD "Crossfade" (1994), which was successful abroad as well. The band then plays concerts across Europe and supports bands like Voïvod, NoMeansNo or Killing Joke. The band also has a very friendly relationship with Jello Biafra.

After the US tour at the end of the last century Insania released CD "Recycling & Live in Seattle", then two regular CDs "Trans-Mystic Anarchy" and "Out". At the beginning of the year 2008 the last CD "Rock’n’Freud" of Insania is awarded with [b]Anděl[/b] (Czech Grammy) as the best album of the year in the "hard and heavy" category. In May 2008 Insania wins Břitva, [b]The Album of the Year[/b] prize, awarded by 61 newspapermen from 29 media.

In 2012 Insania entered to Břitva’s [b]Gallery of Legends[/b] together with Pražský výběr and Master’s Hammer.

V roce 1996 založil Kryštof Peterka svou kapelu Immunology (Tolerance), která časem vyřadila z názvu druhé slovo a stala se prakticky jedničkou domácích EBM podií. Živé prezentace spojené se záblesky rozbrušovačky apod. se staly pojmem.

Formation´s direction of creativity aims are based on original principles of modern form of classical music with its incorporation into a artificial space, using ambient and noise structures, characteristic for the contemporary post-industrial likeness of the world. The project doesn’t completely deny residues of rock principles. At least minimally, it is music paying respect to traditional song form.

Czech alternative rock group. Formed in 1968 in Prague by Milan Hlavsa. Disbanded in 1988, reformed in the 1990s, regularly performing since 1997 until present.
Band members (from 2016): Josef Janíček (vocals, keyboard) - bandleader from 1973, Vratislav Brabenec (vocals, saxophone, clarinet), Jaroslav Kvasnička (drums, vocals), Johnny Judl jr. (bass, vocals), David Babka (guitar).

The Plastic People of the Universe (PPU) is a rock band from Prague, Czech Republic. It was the foremost representative of Prague’s underground culture (1968–1989). This avant-garde group went against the grain of the communist regime and due to its non-conformism often suffered serious problems such as arrests.
Bass player Milan Hlavsa formed the band in 1968, which was heavily influenced by Frank Zappa (“Plastic People” is a song by the Mothers of Invention) and the Velvet Underground.
Czech art historian and cultural critic Ivan Martin Jirous (aka “Magor”, which means: “loony” or “blockhead”) became their manager/artistic director in the following year, fulfilling a similar role the one Andy Warhol had with the The Velvet Underground.
Because Jirous believed that English was the lingua franca of rock music, he employed Paul Wilson, a Canadian who had been teaching in Prague, to teach the band the lyrics of the American songs they covered and to translate their original Czech lyrics into English. Wilson served as PPU lead singer 1970–1972.
In 1974, thousands of students traveled from Prague to the town of České Budějovice to visit a PPU performance. Stopped by police, they were sent back to Prague in cattle cars, and several students were arrested. The band was forced underground until the Velvet Revolution in 1989. Unable to perform openly, an entire underground cultural movement formed around the band during the 1970s.
In 1976 the PPU were arrested and put on trial by the communist government to make an example. They were convicted of "organized disturbance of the peace" and sentenced to terms in prison ranging from 8 to 18 months.
Despite their clashes with the government, the musicians never considered themselves activists and always claimed that they wanted only to play their music. The band broke up in 1988, with some members forming the group Půlnoc (“Midnight”). At former Czech president Václav Havel’s suggestion, they reunited in 1997 in honor of the 20th anniversary of Charter 77, and have performed regularly since then. Founder and leader Milan Hlavsa died in January 2001.

Spelled by the band as *tEaR!doWn*. The electro project tEaR!doWn was launched 2004 in northern germany. The first years were characterized by instrumental experiments, mainly influenced by the classic sound of North American electro acts. In 2007 O. Spring, the former frontman of Swiss dark electro institution Sleepwalk joined the project to add vocals to these creations. The first release was the 7-track demo CD-R Mind!kick in late 2007. Since that time, tEaR!doWn played some live shows in Germany and Switzerland and continued to record new songs. In addition some remixes were produced by some friends/bands. The sound spans from harder mid- and up-tempo grooves to atmospheric moments, combining melodic and gloomy undertones with slightly distorted vocals and background samples.

Czech Punk Band Exist 1984 - 1991

Czech „integrated music“ project of composer Vladimír Hirsch and sound-engineer Tom Saivon, started in 1999 as more abstract sprout of their sympho-industrial band Skrol, stressing the work with rich arsenal of sound structures. It is based on grasping both ways in a manner (contemporary classical v. industrial and dark ambient), which would allow them to partake of each other’s principal formal attributes, both on the basis of violent confrontation and of mutual empathy. The goal of this specific form of work is a unification of seemingly irreconcilable worlds into a indivisible essence. This act represents the metaphorical and philosophical principles of the formation’s work.

LUMINAR AX is a conjoint project between American singer and poet Dove Hermosa and Czech composer and instrumentalist Vladimír Hirsch, active between 2007 and 2011.

They were also regularly performing as a studio rhythm section, either anonymously or under various monikers (e.g. Elektrovox or even as members of TOČR). Between 1983–1986 prohibited from performing or recording due to communist censorship. Definitively disbanded in December 2005. Revived in 2006 by Kocáb with a Czech-Australian line-up as “Pražský výběr II”. Reunited in the “classic” 1980s line-up in 2012, including both drummers.

Dnes již neexistující soubor Mare Nigrum vznikl v prosinci 1995. Kapela se poprvé objevuje na festivalu ALTERNATIVA 95, která byla tehdy zřetelně nakloněna elektronické hudbě. V rámci příležitostného projektu se tehdy ještě pod označením Mare N. na podiu objevili Tomáš Sedláček (klávesy, sampler), Jiří Pykal (basa), Jiří Pejchal (zpěv, akordeon) a jako host DJ Liquid A. V únoru 1996 přichází trojice Sedláček, Pykal a Pejchal, doplněná o zpěvačku Lindu Titzovou, se základem budoucího repertoáru s prvky elektronické hudby a elektronického dance popu.

V květnu natáčí Mare Nigrum tři remixy pro reedici alba skupiny Ser Un Peyjalero "Joint Is Better Than Panzerfaust", které vydává Black Point. Poté směřuje hlavní aktivita souboru k natočení vlastního alba. Zcela výjimečně se na sklonku roku kapela objevuje na třech festivalech, doplněná o hostujícího Jiřího Jurka (perkuse, kytara) a Pavla Čecha (klávesy, sopran saxofon). Počátkem roku se sestava rozšiřuje o další zpěvačku, kterou je osobitá subtilní Dánka, Alice Rose Bryld, jež se začíná na připravovaném albu podílet i autorsky.

V únoru 1997 nahrávají Mare Nigrum spolu s dalšími hostujícími hudebníky (bicí, perkuse, zpěv) nové album ve studiu Kufr ve Slabcích u Rakovníka. Natáčení a produkce se ujímá Frank Verschuuren, který se svým umem zapsal na alba The Legendary Pink Dots, Skinny Puppy a Download. Album, doplněné remixy Mirka Papeže (Magnetik, Nihilists, Vanessa Gun), DJ Liquid A a Ohm Square, vychází pod názvem Grape 1. dubna 1997 na domácí značce Wolf Records. Koncertní promoturné začalo 23. května společným vystoupením s The Legendary Pink Dots v pražském klubu Roxy.

Punk band from Brněnec, Czech Republic. Formed in 1990.

Hardcore band from Kroměříž, Czech Republic.

Czech avantgarde new wave group, also known as O.Z.W. (Onkel Zbynda’s Winterrock).

Disco group formed in 1974, U.K. as Silent Eruption.
After Lindell Leslie, their original singer, left the group, Precious Wilson moved from backing to lead vocals.
Frank Farian signed the group at Hansa International. They toured with Boney M. in 1977 and achieved an international hit with their disco cover version of Ann Peebles’ *I Can’t Stand The Rain*, taken from their first album. While the flagship single from their second album, *Leave A Light*, only charted modestly (it was a cover of Caston & Majors’ *I’ll Keep My Light In My Window*), another cover of Neil Sedaka’s hit *One Way Ticket* was a Top 5 hit all over Europe early 1979.

Shortly after, Precious Wilson left the group for a solo career and was replaced by Kim Davis (7). The group’s self-penned *Go Johnnie Go* from their third album *Fight Fight Fight* was a Top 10 hit in Germany in 1980, but only months later, Davis died of a brain hemorrhage. She was replaced by singer Janye James, and their 1981 cover version of Del Shannon’s *Runaway* narrowly missed the German Top 20.

By the end of that year, they signed with Ralph Siegel’s Jupiter Records and released a handful of unsuccessful singles and one album *Our Way* before finally disbanding in 1985 after their final single *Where Do I Begin*.

Industrial rock band abbreviated as NIN (stylized as NIИ) was formed in 1988 in Cleveland. Trent Reznor has served as the main producer, singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, and sole member of Nine Inch Nails for 28 years. This changed in December 2016 when Atticus Ross officially became the second member of the band. Nine Inch Nails straddles a wide range of many styles of rock music and other genres that require an electronic sound, which can often cause drastic changes in sound from album to album. However NIN albums in general have many identifiable characteristics in common, such as recurring leitmotifs, chromatic melodies, dissonance, terraced dynamics and common lyrical themes.

British post-punk/new wave band formed in 1976 in Salford. While Joy Divisions first recordings were heavily influenced by early punk, they soon developed a sound and style that made them one of the pioneers of the post-punk movement.

Během své existence zaznamenala kapela mnoho změn v sestavě a její současný frontman Smith je jejím jediným stálým členem. První deska Three Imaginary Boys začlenila kapelu mezi post-punková hnutí, generaci nové vlny, která vedla k vybuzení punk rockové revoluce ve Spojeném království. V osmdesátých letech zařadila skupinu její ponurá až trýznivá hudba do oblasti gothic rocku.

distinctive goth rock band that incorporated psychedelic and progressive elements until their eventual split in 1991

The band was notoriously different on each of their three studio albums, from media dubbed 'goth' to 'keyboards' to 'American rock'. The band is known for being one of the leaders of the 80s goth music scene, however they deny any association with goth, and consider themselves first and foremost a rock band.

Hudba JK vzniká přímo na pódiu, muzikanti si jen řeknou určitá témata (například roční období), a ta pak hrají. V jejich improvizacích se často projevují i vlivy a ozvěny lidové hudby, ať už je to klezmer nebo lidové motivy z hudby východní Evropy. Plus v názvu skupiny je připraveno pro různé hosty. S JK hráli například saxofonisté Jiří Durman a Vratislav Brabenec či pianista Jiří Schneider.

Bubeník Jan Schneider(1955) prošel mnoha undergroundovými seskupeními, z nichž nejvýznamnější byli The Plastic People of the Universe, na jejichž desce Pašijové hry velikonoční se podílel jako perkusista a zpěvák. Od osmdesátých let se věnuje různým formám jazzu, od volné improvizace po dixieland.

Slovakian Dark Ambient project.

Converter is the brainchild of Scott Sturgis, a one-man electro-consortium. Originating in Ohio, but now based in Seattle, Converter began in early 1998, when a growing interest in rhythm-drive sound inspired Sturgis to pursue a rhythmic noise-based project. Converter saw its first release in 1999, with Shock Front, a mature work in the same vein as other artists in the Ant-Zen family such as P·A·L, Imminent Starvation and Iszoloscope, as well as well-known rhythmic noise innovators like Dive and Esplendor Geometrico. Converter investigates the industrial field, without denying its roots. Described as *hard hitting, noise tinged electro-industrial*, the music is loaded with infectious and penetrating rhythms perfect for dance floors. Tracks like *Coma*, which has become a popular club hit in Toronto, offer machine-driven rhythms with a turbulent downpour of torrential electronics. Bombastic rhythms are coupled with tweaked synths to create an atmosphere of distorted aggression that shows no mercy in its relentless attack on your senses. Sturgis creates paranoid, intense and threatened atmospheres incorporating elements of powernoise and analogue electronics. Sturgis has a full resume, boosting projects Pain Station, a split disc with R4 (Dbs/R4), collaboration with Asche and Morgenstern, Xenonics K-30 (a collaboration with Leech from Navicon Torture Technologies ), and the recent project Notime to his roster. As well as writing music, Sturgis also began his own label, Auricle Media, with fellow artist Manufactura.

Founded in 1988, [b]The Rorschach Garden[/b] was the solo project of [b]Philipp Münch[/b], mainly known from his works as Synapscape. In 1997, he stopped this project due personal reasons. [b]The Rorschach Garden[/b] was reactivated in 2001, made its first public appearance at the Maschinenfest 2002 in Aachen, Germany. After this, some other live perfomances were held with the help of some of [b]Philipp[/b]’s closer friends.
Ever since, [b]TRG[/b] has grown into a proper band with a steady lineup and a great reputation for live performances. Their musical style has developed into a unique blend of electronic pop music and defies genre limitations.
Since 2008, no concerts have been played due to personal circumstances of the band members, yet there might possibly some again.

Czech alternative rock group. Originally founded in 1973 as “The Naive Extempore Band” by Jaroslav Jeroným Neduha, in 1976 renamed to Rock & Jokes Extempore Band which disbanded in summer 1978. Reformed in November 1978 by Mikoláš Chadima as “The New Rock & Jokes Extempore Band”, in 1979 shortened to “The Extempore Band”, disbanded again in the early 1980s (transformed to MCH Band). Revived in early 1990 by Neduha as “JéJé Neduha & Rock & Jokes Extempore Band”. Neduha’s Rock & Jokes Extempore Band still performs as of 2019.

Czech new romantic / synth-pop group active from 1985 to 1992. Reformed in 2011.

Czech black metal group founded in 1992 by Vlad Blasphemer and Barbarud Hrom.

The first live performance occured on the 23rd of December 1992. The debut demo *Immortal Death* was released in 1993, and one year later *The Incapable Carrion* saw the light of the day. In 1995 a split EP with Dark Storm was released, and in November that same year the debut album *Barbarians* was released by Pussy God Records. The band performed 15 live gigs that year as well. In 1996, the second album titled *Lucan-Antikrist* was unleashed, with more professional sound but still very raw and brutal. More live shows were performed, mostly in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany. The third album *Krvestreb* was released in 1997, followed by *Cerna Krev* in 1998. August 1999 brought the *Proti Vsem* split CD in cooperation with Sezarbil and Inferno. In October of that year the next album *Invaze* was released followed in December 2000 by *Epitaph - The Last Onslaught of Maniac Butcher*, which closed the first chapter in the band’s history. This was the band’s statement explaining their decision:

*We and our musical feeling stayed same but the scene around us was changed a lot in the last years. Many old great hordes already left the scene and there remain tons of sweet childish imitations full of romantic keyboards and female vocals. We are afraid there is no more place for hordes like Maniac Butcher on today’s scene.
Now nearly no bands plays that, what was called as Black Metal in the past... and that, what is called as Black Metal today, we call shit. We don’t want to do anything with that shit. We don’t want to be part of this fuckin’ scene for more...
Today’s Black Metal scene is dead! But true Black Metal will live so long, until some true Black Metal fans will love and listen to old recordings!
We will never betray our roots!!!*

The band reformed in 2009, playing gigs again and recording their final album, *Masakr*, released in 2010. In 2012 the *Metal From Hell* EP was released as a tribute to the band’s influences. This was to be their final recording, as Vlad Blasphemer died in 2015.

Czech alternative rock band from Prague.

Formed 2006 by Daniel Šubrt who rounded up members of three Czech bands with different musical and religious opinions, trying to combine hard rock, rock’n’roll, blues, heavy metal and grunge styles they used to play in their previous bands. After a smooth assimilation they came to a kind of common speech and their music could be actually described as mix of garage rock and glam.

The Drain combine elements of the 60’s garage and blues, 70’s glam rock and contemporary hard/stoner rock with the best aspects of power pop, while they still adhere to the old fashioned rock’n’roll lifestyle. Their live shows don’t lack the essential sense of noise, experiment and the atmosphere of old school punk parties. Where there is not enough sex, narcissism and razorblades in today rock’n’roll, The Drain are coming.

Flint Glass is a Paris-based dark electronica project that has been described by critics as representing some of the most innovative sounds-styling towards electronica, rhythmic noise and dark ambient genres. Flint Glass is a one man project of Gwenn Trémorin, formed in 1999. Not only a musician and producer, Gwenn also manages the outstanding experimental electronica label Brume records in France. Flint Glass’ music tends to crawl under your skin, shapes the most fantastic images, and keeps challenging by means of an intelligent use of samples, rhythms and beats. With Flint Glass you find influences from the ambient of the ‘90’s as well as various forms of IDM, tribal and industrial rhythmic noise. Flint Glass has played numerous live gigs all around Europe, festivals and at some famous clubs like Batofar/Paris, Dom/Moscow, Slime light/London, Kab Usine/Geneva and his project already appears in the foreground of finest experimental dark electronica.

Fractional is Eugenie. Her music can be qualified as Gothic Erotica I guess, a dark and brooding Electronica with a strong Jungle aftertaste. She literally vomits his brokenbeats and tortures them to submission, waxing them with various bleeps and crackles, smearing almost mystical pads on their bruised bodies.

Czech alternative-hardcore/thrash-metal band from Letohrad.

Czech rock group. Founded 1974 in Plzeň (former Czechoslovakia) by Oldřich Říha and Jiří Šindelář, initially named “Mahagon”. After being banned by the regional communist authorities they relocated to Prague. Renamed on Mahagon’s request to “Katapult” in August 1975. They became one of the most popular Czechoslovak live acts of the late 1970s, releasing two best-selling albums and several SPs, winning the “best group” category of the popular youth magazine Mladý svět’s annual reader award “Zlatý slavík” (“Golden Nightingale”) in 1979 and 1980. Despite further bans by the authorities during the late 1970s (eventually they were not allowed to perform in Prague at all) and particularly in the first half of the 1980s (no recording permission despite valid Supraphon contract, absolutely no radio or TV presence), the duo Říha/Šidelář remained continuously active as “Katapult” with changing (or returning) drummers until Šindelář’s premature death in January 2009.

Hardrock side-project of Petr Hošek, the mastermind and guitarist behind the Czech black / dark metal band Root.

Experimental German group, formed in West Berlin in 1980. The band is notable for predominantly using custom built instruments constructed out of scrap metal and power tools.

Their name in English literally means Collapsing New Buildings, where New Buildings describes a type of architecture common in post-WWII Germany (large concrete box-style buildings) and Collapsing is an adjective in this context, not a verb.

From Einstürzende Neubauten’s website: We actively discourage the purchase of releases by Some Bizarre or their American licensee, Thirsty Ear, as they have been and continue to be sold without paying royalties to the band.

German actress, born 12 August 1950 in Detmold, Germany. Mother of Oliver Berben.

Faith No More was formed after the breakup of Faith. No Man.. They underwent several lineup changes including a period of where they would play ’open mic’ shows where they’d invite people to take on vocal duties. Courtney Love and Paula Frazer were two of the temporary vocalists which occasioned the mic at these shows.

Finally they settled on Chuck Mosley (Vocals), Roddy Bottum (Keyboards), Billy Gould (Bass Guitar), Mike Bordin (drums) and Jim Martin (Guitar). They released their debut album ’We Care A Lot’ on Mordam Records in 1985.

They were signed to Slash Records and released Introduce Yourself in 1987. This album spawned their first hit We Care A lot. Due to tensions within the band Chuck Mosley was fired prior to the recording of their third studio album The Real Thing. Mosley was replaced by Mike Patton.

The Real Thing was released in 1989 to critical and commercial acclaim. It featured another rock/rap hit called ’Epic’ plus a string of other minor hit singles. ’The Real Thing’ was the first album by the band to achieve platinum sales figures in the US.

Their fourth studio album ’Angel Dust’ the second with new vocalist Mike Patton. The album met critical success and is often deemed their most important record. It is often cited as the album which gave birth to Nu-Metal. This album’s darker themes; frequent genre changes Patton’s maturation and vocal versatility was a drastic shift in artistic direction and saw another rift open, often publically between the band and guitarist Jim Martin. Jim Martin was sacked via fax following the ’Angel Dust’ tour in late 1993.

In 1995 after auditioning several guitarists including Killing Joke’s Geordie Walker, the band hired Mr. Bungle guitarist Trey Spruance and recorded ’King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime’. Trey Spruance completed the record but made it clear that touring the record would not be possible. The band hired Dean Menta to fill in for the tour. The album had a mixed critical response which was followed by lukewarm album sales which led to the cancellation of part of their 1995 European tour.

During the writing for ’Album Of The Year’ the band replaced Dean Menta with Billy Gould’s former room-mate Jon Hudson. Hudson was heavily involved in the writing of the album, helping with all three of the released singles from ’Album of The Year’. The album was received well both critically and commercially compared to ’King For A Day’ but it became clear that due to conflicting side projects that Faith No More would either have to end or be put on hiatus. With Mike Bordin joining Black Sabbath, Mike Patton committed to Mr. Bungle for the foreseeable future and Roddy Bottum moonlighting with Imperial Teen the band chose to split amid weeks of rumour and speculation. The announcement was made by Billy Gould via email on April 20th 1998.

On February 24, 2009 the band announced their reunion as a touring entity. Between 2011 and in 2014 they played three new songs. In September 2014 they announced that a Warner Bros. agreed to formally end their recording contract which allowed them to launch their new label [l744098] which would release a new single in November 2014 and an album in April 2015.

Porenut was established by the end of 2008 as one man project, which had served to his author as a platform for realization of his perception of music and world. Despite the name, Porenut refuses each form of paganism (and other forms of religion and spirituality) and endorses the heritage of black metal, unspoiled with pipes and hurdy-gurdies. Vocalist Neplex (ex-Lugubris) joined Porenut in 2009 and world of twisted melodies became even more twisted, when accompanied by specific lyrical visions… In those days come to existence first drafts of songs, which became basis for album which is released (thanks to drummer R. Vrecník and despite approx. billion of problems) in 2012 - called Mislife.
2013 - full lenght album - MISLIFE is OUT - from DIY label Nomad Sky Diaries - The unholy release - black metal as fuck from the end to the beginning!! Seven precious compositions from the slovakian black harts PORENUT plus bonus track in cooperation with 900piesek + Petkq. The soundtrack to the endless nausea and undying beauty in the reflection of soul suicide. For some people has this album a very personal philosophical meaning.At all it ends.

Winter 2014 - Music DIY label Nomad Sky Diaries in collaboration with Defective Press Publishing are releasing new “EP” of black metal project PORENUT – Sebaklam (The Self-deceit), which develops themes from debut album Mislife even further. Four new, narrative driven songs, with colorful composition and muddy, dirty sound are interconnected with the nihilistic – oneself & world deconstructing – philosophy – which is articulated through the book – full of absurdity, intolerance and degeneration, accompanied by depressing illustrations done by the drummer Svjatogor. Everything is packed in black box, with poster and piece of rock. Release on CD/MC via labels Nomad Sky diares and Defective press. Cassette contains bonus in the form of rehearsal version of the whole EP.
