10/02/2016 + + + It took me some time to update this page (wow, three months, I think). Quite some things have happened since then.
1. I celebrated 5 Years of Keep it a Secret and 4 Years of We Want The Airwaves in November. You can download the compilation I gave out that night on bandcamp:
2. We Want The Airwaves got cancelled in January. After 47 punk rock parties and probably over 5000 songs, I officially no longer know what to do every 3rd Friday of each months. Bummer. But still, it was a great farewell party. If you want to know which songs I played each night, go here: http://keepitasecret.de/wwta/
3. antario.’s EP Vom Zustand des Schwebens is finally out. Lomng overdue, but it’s finally here, and it’s a beauty on smoky-clear vinyl. You can order it here: Tictail
HEADLINER-ZEIT! Wer spielt am 20.11. bei 5 Jahre KEEP IT A SECRET / 4 Jahre WE WANT THE AIRWAVES als letztes? Die Ideen reichten von geklonten Ramones-Tribute-Bands (naheliegend) über bengalische Austropunker (zu teuer) zu Schreng Schreng & La La (schon wieder?), aber nee, warum nicht einfach eine gute Punkband?
Und mit eben dieser schließt sich der Kreis. Lange bevor es überhaupt die Idee zu Keep it a Secret gab, habe ich mit dieser Band mein erstes richtiges Punkrock-Konzert veranstaltet (2008 war das wohl). Mittlerweile sind ein paar weitere Shows (in Hanau) dazu gekommen, und wenn sie jetzt auch endlich (!!!) eine neue Platte am Start haben (Platte des Monats im OX und so), können sie auch Mainz mal wieder beehren: mit das Beste, was so in Sachen Punkrock in Deutschland unterwegs ist, Saarbrücken’s best dancers, STEAKKNIFE! Darauf ein Hell Yeah!
I will be DJing the Pirate Satellite festival Aftershow Party at the Schlachthof in Wiesbaden on May 8th. Good times ahead! Samiam is playing, and guess from whose song I got the name „Keep it a Secret“? The party is called „THE FREAKS, NERDS & ROMANTICS“; the Facebook link is here: FB-Event
And the next day, I’m gonna quit my band 🙁 May 9th, 2015: my last show with A STATE OF GRACE at the AKZ Metzgerstraße in Hanau. Come party, we’ll bring the Waldmeister Sahne! FB-Event
