In Germany, we have – as I could experience in the last months – very many great electro, techno and house musicians and bands. So I want to show you three great bands; I still discovered many of them in 2012 in school. The three bands/musicians are Wankelmut, Oliver Koletzki and Nils Hoffmann.
Bomb the Bass- an electronic and dance band formed 1997 from the British musician and producer Tim Simenon , he releaesed several albums and produced severeal singles in coproduction as example with Martin Gore ( Depeche Mode ) or the Ultravox singer John Foxx. here are two titles the first one “Up the mountain ” and the second one , i think it´s more popular “Butterfingers”
And now something political :Berlin, August 8th 2012: About 400 people joined Peaches on the street to show support for the members of Russian conceptual art punk activist band, Pussy Riot, 3 of which are on trial for performing a “punk prayer” against President Vladimir Putin. In addition, people from all over the world have contributed their own mini-protest videos calling for the release of Pussy Riot.
Please forgive me- first of all, as a religious man, i was in doubt about Pussy Riots “Punk prayer” in a church i don´t know wheather it´s the right place for political protest , but the reaction of the russian government seemed to be too hard for me on the other side, up to 7 years prison for that ?? . In my opinion this blog should notbe political nor religious , but in the name of justice is ask Mr. Putin to free Pussy Riot !
