95-04-28 Stack & Seein'Red - drawing

First evening of the ‘Ceaseless Suffocation’ festival – no idea why Bruno made up this name – which was first intended as a one-day-er… This Friday evening in the pub was kind of a ‘preparation’ for the next day

Lots of bands had been announced in previous newsletters: ‘Propagandhi’ (Can), ‘U.F.D.’ (Ger), ‘Los Sommros’ (Cze), ‘Porcos Sujos’ (Por), ‘Zemezluc’ (Cze), ‘Acme’ … No idea what kept them away…

‘Acme’ definitely didn’t play this one….

Bart Jansen, ‘Deconsume’ guitarist

We didn’t play that gig…it was planned, but did not realize.

‘Soty’, ‘Zemezluc’s bassist/vocalist

‘Stack’ (from Ludwigshafen/Kaiserslautern) was formed Dec 1993 when Corey and Bernd (a couple a that time) wanted to do something different from ‘Abolition’ (92-09-06) music-wise. The line-up here was: Bernd Bohrmann (screams), Ralf ‘Flowerviolence’ Bock (drums), Chris(tophe) Klimmer (guitar; ex ‘Nyctophobic’), Marcel ‘Croissant’ Hanneman (guitar) and Corey von Villiez (bass; replaced by a guy for 5 months, a bit later by Michael ‘Bpunk’ Bergweiler). In May ’94 they recorded a demo (white box with a red dot on the back – a ‘slight’ hint to their love for Jap-thrash). For those who don’t have the tape, check it out. Their music would be described as power-violence. From the review of this in my zine Tilt! #8 “Once in a while a person needs a brutalisation of the senses like this, to be able to feel human.”; the conclusion: “Essential material!”. A bit after this gig they did recordings for the split-7”s with ‘Seein’Red’ (called Backbone) and ‘Capitalist Casualties’ ‎(both on Equality recs, Corey & Bernd’s label). After the recording of this Corey left the band (which was in the Summer of ‘95) …

Apparently they played the next day => 95-04-29 photos ‘Ceaseless Suffocation’ festival

‘Seein’Red’ was on the We’re Punks Not Crusties tour together with ‘Stack’ (see pic that was on the split-7”). We’d seen the ‘brothers’ at various places but as far as I can remember this was only their 2nd passage in the V.V. Off course everyone knows their vast discography but just to give an indication; they had just recorded for the Trefwoord Punk 7” (with the Dutch lyrics) and Wicked Witch recs put out the More Of The Same 7” that was recorded late ’94… Sascha May (Evilspeak zine) recorded their set here and put the tape out under the name Punk Is Verzet.

‘Gluebag’ (Liège) had played here already on 95-02-11. It was a ‘project that Phil, Willy and Jonas (who were or had been in ‘Hiatus’) did: playing punk à la ‘Disorder’… But it didn’t last very long… Wills had joined ‘Unhinged’ in the mean time, Jonas spent time with his mates of the Groninger squat-scene and Phil… Well don’t know what he was up to ;-)

I’ve no recollections of this gig myself. I used to work weekend-/night-shifts in a hospital during that period: perhaps I wasn’t even there…

I found the master-tape of the ‘Seein’Red’ concert at the V.V. from 1995 (which Gregor [Kanitz] and me later put out as a benefit-tape)…

Sascha May (Evlispeak zine)

————————-

‘Zemezluc’ (from the Brno area) played tuneful hardcore/ punk. They have a immense discography and the line-up changed quite a few times. At that time were (I think) ‘Soty’ Pavel Zachoval (bass/vocals), ‘Ruda’ Rudolf Pospíšil (drums) and ‘Eda’ Karel Florián (guitar/vocals). Most of their tapes/records are self-released. Since ’97 Pavel Friml released their material on his label Papagájuv Hlasatel recs (www.phr.cz). Apparently the bands still plays (zemezluc.net)…

‘Propagandhi’ had already been announced 95-03-05. I explained why they didn’t tour…

‘U.F.D.’ did a gig at the V.V. on 92-06-13

‘Acme’ had been here probably on 94-04-09. They’d probably split up by then – see ‘Acme’ interview in Tilt! #8.

‘Los Sommros’ was an anarchist HC-punk band from Brno, Czechoslovakia.

‘Porcos Sujos’ (“Dirty Pigs”; orginially ‘PSP’ or ‘Porcos Sujos Punk’), from Portugal, arose after the split of ‘Subcaos’. They were said to be influenced by Scandinavian HC.

    I really do not recall playing this gig at the Vort’n Vis at all but these photos look really familiar.
    The whole ‘Punks Not Crusties’ thing started on the first small Easter tour we did together with ‘Stack’. It was taken from a ‘C.F.D.L.’ song, called Song For Crustie. Brilliant. We did share a lot of good gigs together.
    I Always had a soft spot for ‘Hiatus’ and still do. The people from Liege had their hearts in the right place and we always felt very wellcomed to their city.
