Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Tonite WIERD welcomes our long time ever-supportive allies in Leipzig, Germany MONOZID for their first ever live performance in NYC at midnight! Max, Ralf, and Franz have been keeping the dark indie wave scene alive and well via the excellent community they have built in eastern Germany through the many parties associated with their great Transmission fanzine, and are part of an entire new wave of European groups along with the likes Frank(just Frank), Soviet Soviet, Varsovie, and Moldig who are melding the classic sounds of the early Vague Froide and Neue Deutsche Welle bands on the continent with that of the new indie bands in Brooklyn and London...needless to say tonite will your only Very Rare chance to catch the guys in NYC for some time to come...VR. http://www.myspace.com/monozid

Many exciting WIERD-VRelated events this past week, all have been linked up on the website, a few highlights: The Guardian in London aired a 30 minute radio program covering the just released 'Wierd Presents:' historical compilation featuring interviews with Joe Daniel of Angular Records and the great Lidia Fiala of legendary Dutch minimal electronic pioneers NINE CIRCLES! This was the first 'on air' words from Lidia in nearly 30 years, highly encouraged listening: http://www.guardian.co.uk/....weekly-cold-wave

The Quietus also reviewed the collection:

Thanks to everyone who came out for the London launch party last Friday, a reminder to all our Italian friends the official IT release party will be this Friday evening at Locanda Atlantide in Rome featuring live performances by WIERD's own Frank(just Frank) and Rometown heros Soviet Soviet, and our beloved forever-high minimal electronic modernist master Alessandro Adriani of Mannequin Records spinning the night away...On the heels of his incredible 'Danza Meccanica' Compilation Alessandro has just put the finishing touches on the forthcoming Led Er Est/Ancien Regime split LP that will be out in time for the Xeno & Oaklander/Led Er Est tour shows in Italy next month! More details on this one up on the website(scroll to Feb 12th). Lastly our long-supportive VRiends at the great Skug Journal für Musik in Vienna have published a very comprehensive WIERD Records interview that just went up on the Skug site and the print version will be on newstands all over DE, AT, and FR in a few weeks: http://www.skug.at/index.php?Art_ID=4863
