Felix Kubin plus Zombie Zombie / MiT
A retro-futuristic dadatronic pop star in the making, Hamburg’s Felix Kubin headlines alongside Zombie Zombie - two Krautrock and horror-movie soundtrack obsessives from Paris - and Cologne synth-rock trio MIT, who put their own spin on the ongoing revival of all that was cool around 1980.
// Zombie Zombie
These two Krautrock and horror-movie soundtrack obsessives from Paris have gained considerable acclaim for live shows. Yelping into an echo box while creating motorik intricacies, drummer Neman (Herman Dune) provides a infectious backbone to Etienne Jaumets analogue synth onslaught. Deliciously gloomy dance rock that, well, rocks, and no guitar in sight.
Just like the groups of the Neue Deutsche Welle (German New Wave) took the Anglo-American post-punk template and reshaped it according to its own needs, this Cologne synth-rock trio put their own spin on the (still!) ongoing revival of all that was cool around 1980. From DAF to DFA, they are having lots of fun in there.
