ARTE Concert: The Notwist im Pariser Konzertclub „Divan du Monde“






Endlich unterbrechen The Notwist die seit 2009 andauernde Funkstille! Nach diskreten Anfängen als Metal-Rock-Schülerband in den 1990er-Jahren hat sich die Formation aus Oberbayern von kreischenden Gitarren wegentwickelt und ist inzwischen fest in der Independent-Rockszene etabliert. Als Martin Gretschmann dazustieß, hielten auch Pop- und Elektronikelemente ...

Am 14.Juni bin ich mit meiner kleinen Krachkapelle

Diechinesischenglueckskekse:

in München (Strom) anzutreffen, falls jemand eine gute Portion flachen Humor und laute Musik braucht: ich freue mich auf euren Besuch :-)

Strom-muenchen: STROM - Programm 14.06.2014 - Wreck Away Beach



Bild/Foto

Einlass 20.30 Uhr | Beginn 21.30 Uhr
Die Chinesischen Glückskekse + Support live

Schnauze voll von dem professionellen Lack, mit dem der gute alte Psychobilly gern mal wieder zum Style aufpoliert wird? Die chinesischen Glückskekse aus Köln rubbeln den Quatsch mit punkigem Rotz nachhaltig wieder runter! Diese ausgesprochen kultige Band suhlt sich in grandios-knusprigem Proberaum-Sound, schrulligen (deutschen!) Texten über die ganzen nervenden Normalos und vermixt quasi nebenbei herrlich schiefe Country-Anleihen mit schmalzigem Rock‘n‘Roll, um erhaben über sämtliche Szeneweidezäune hinweg zu dilettieren. Und das mit Schmackes seit 1986 – Respekt!

Seit 2002 gibt es in der Landeshauptstadt regelmäßig im Mai bzw. Juni einen Japan-Tag. Er hat sich zu einem der beliebtesten Düsseldorfer Ereignisse entwickelt. Im Rahmen eines deutsch-japanischen Begegnungsfestes bringen die in Düsseldorf lebenden Japaner den Besuchern die Kultur ihrer Heimat nahe. Kimono-Anproben, Kalligraphie, Samurai- und Musikgruppen gehören dabei zu den regelmäßigen Höhepunkten. Krönender Abschluss ist traditionell das große japanische Feuerwerk, für das eigens ein Pyrotechniker mit speziellen Feuerwerkskörpern aus Japan anreist.
Man ist sich näher gekommen in den Jahrzehnten der wachsenden Zusammenarbeit. Der Begriff von "Japans Hauptstadt am Rhein" hat sich längst mit Leben gefüllt.

Nybooks: 'We Kill People Based on Metadata' by David Cole



A bill to rein in NSA spying on Americans’ metadata is an important first step, but it addresses only one part of the NSA’s surveillance activities.

Supporters of the National Security Agency inevitably defend its sweeping collection of phone and Internet records on the ground that it is only collecting so-called “metadata”—who you call, when you call, how long you talk. Since this does not include the actual content of the communications, the threat to privacy is said to be negligible. That argument is profoundly misleading.

Of course knowing the content of a call can be crucial to establishing a particular threat. But metadata alone can provide an extremely detailed picture of a person’s most intimate associations and interests, and it’s actually much easier as a technological matter to search huge amounts of me

Süddeutsche.de: Bundesregierung lehnt Vernehmung von Edward Snowden ab



Die Frage, ob der Ex-Geheimdienstmitarbeiter Snowden nach Deutschland kommt, um im NSA-Untersuchungsausschuss auszusagen, ist geklärt. Die Bundesregierung hat sich dagegen ausgesprochen.

Die Bundesregierung lehnt eine Vernehmung von Edward Snowden in Deutschland ab. In einer Stellungnahme für den NSA-Untersuchungsausschuss begründen das Kanzleramt und die beteiligten Ministerien dies mit einer Gefährdung des "Staatswohls". Die Beziehungen zu Amerika seien wirtschafts,- außen- und sicherheitspolitisch von herausragender Bedeutung, den Whistleblower auf deutschem Boden zu vernehmen könne zu "schweren und dauerhaften Belastungen" führen, heißt es im finalen Entwurf des Schreibens an die Ausschussmitglieder.

To Be Kind





Young God Records is delighted to announce the release of a new SWANS album, To Be Kind, out on May 13, 2014.

A NOTE FROM MICHAEL GIRA:
Hello There,
We (Swans) have recently completed our new album. It is called To Be Kind. The release date is set for May 13, 2014. It will be available as a triple vinyl album, a double CD, and a 2XCD Deluxe Edition that will include a live DVD. It will also be available digitally.
The album was produced by me, and it was recorded by the venerable John Congleton at Sonic Ranch, outside El Paso Texas, and further recordings and mixing were accomplished at John’s studio in Dallas, Texas. We commenced rehearsals as Sonic Ranch in early October 2013, began recording soon thereafter, then completed the process of mixing with John in Dallas by mid December 2013.

Food is life. It's the connective tissue between families, communities and cultures.

For , R&B's resident provocateur, Food — her first album since 2010's dance-heavy Flesh Tone — is the embodiment of what she has always contended as an artist: that she can't be molded to fit inside one genre — one flavor, one dish, one cuisine. ...
