Meinert, Philipp: Homopunk History. Von den Sechzigern bis in di

Der urbane Sumpf, aus dem Punk hervorkroch, war alles andere als heterosexuell und männlich geprägt. Dort tummelten sich die New Yorker Prä-Punks von The Velvet Underground um den bisexuellen Lou Reed oder die mit Geschlechterrollen spielenden New York Dolls. Und auch als Punk Ende der Siebziger explodierte, war er geprägt von der gemeinsamen Vergangenheit mit der schwul-lesbischen Kultur. Die Schlüsselfiguren der späteren Londoner Punkszene trafen sich bevorzugt in Homo-Bars, die bürgerlichen Vorstellungen von »Männlichkeit« und sexueller Identität wurden zusammen mit der Musik­geschichte entsorgt.

Aber schnell wurden Punk und sein Subgenre Hardcore immer brutaler, lauter und männlicher. Viele Schwule, Lesben und Queers kehrten der Szene den Rücken oder verblieben ungeoutet im Schrank, bis mit Bruce LaBruce und G.B. Jones zwei Punks in Toronto Mitte der 1980er die Queercore-Bewegung ins Leben riefen.

»Homopunk Story« geht auf die Suche nach den Nischen, in denen Punk trotz allem abweichende sexuelle Identitäten möglich machte. Denn es gab weiterhin Refugien, in denen sich Punk seine Offenheit bewahrte. Die texanische Szene um Bands wie M.D.C, The Dicks und die Big Boys etwa provozierte die US-Szene, indem sie Genderrollen hinterfragte und sich auch nicht scheute, die Homophobie der Szene anzusprechen.

Das Buch enthält exklusive Interviews mit Danny Fields, Jayne County, Wolfgang Müller, Mike Bullshit, Bruce LaBruce, Vaginal Creme Davis, Lynn Breedlove, Martin Sorrondeguy und vielen anderen.

It's been a while but finally four years after their split 7" with Geraniüm (France) and their 'Hexis' 12", here's a new record by FINISTERRE. Their sound has developed quite a bit and moved from the mid-tempo D-Beat/Crust more towards Dark Hardcore with hints of Postpunk. It's a diverse record. Each of these eight songs stands for itself. Manuela's brutal but charasmatic vocals are deep, political and radical. Telling stories of anger and hope. Musically shaped and grown over the years, they play a unique and damn exciting blend of dark melancholy post-hardcore, heavy d-beat and dark crustpunk, incredibly direct and intense. Finisterre are not one of this faceless d-beat-cover-bands, they found their really own sound and are playing in a league with the good and important bands of this genre like Fall of Efrafa, Alpinist or Tragedy. Hardcore with a crust edge, varied and dark. It took a while, but i was definetly worth the wait.

CASSUS separation anxiety LP

CASSUS separation anxiety LP

Where “This Is Dead Art…” focused heavily on political theory and a critique of consumerism, “Separation Anxiety” partially continues these themes while shifting its focus to reflect on philosophical and emotional experience; of trying to make sense of life and simply surviving in a man-made world that was built for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many.

FINISTERRE - hexis 12''

FINISTERRE - hexis 12''

After their split LP with ALPINIST and their LP "bitter songs" from 2010, this is FINISTERRE's third output. It took three years for the five people from cologne to make four new songs, but it was definetly worth the wait. "Hexis" is the consequent continuation of their previous outputs: a unique and exciting blend of dark Post Hardcore-Melancholy, D-Beat and gloomy Crustpunk, incredibly gripping, direct and intense. It's so unique, that it's not just another D-Beat imitiation, but plays in the same league with those great & outstanding bands like FALL OF EFRAFA, ALPINIST or TRAGEDY.

Hardcore with crust edge, varied, versatile and dark.
In times metallic, in other melodic and fronted by the very diverse and brutal vocals by the singer Manueand lyrics, which are highly political and furious
"Hexis" comes as wonderful one sided 12 " in opaque white vinyl with a intricated screen print on the b side, text inlay, download code and a screenprinted cardboard cover on top of a handpainted background. All completely handmade - DIY!!!

Visually and musically a more than exceptional record!
