poplars and rocks is proudly presenting GAY BEAST on their first european tour in berlin. they formed in 2005, released in 2006 the first longplayer disrobics, followed by their second album second wave in 2009 out on skin graft (arab on radar, pre, aids wolf, melt banana). their latest release is the 7-inch charm. listen here to the great exxxpanding from second wave, some fragmented noisy pop tune.
here from label mates aids wolf, spit tastes like metal.
and teenage lakes from pre.
gay beast were playing tonight a single show with child abuse in germany. the berlin online magazine dorfdisco wrote a very nice article about child abuse’s gig last saturday. read it here. although child abuse played for the first time in berlin, I think we had never people flying in from moscow to see a show before. I am also glad for the attention their name brought me on the internet, although adam bomb was not bad either – but it was for the first time that even our newsletter was treated as spam. it was kind of a surprise then that so many people showed up in the end. and they loved it.
listen here to pre-emptive priapism from child abuse. also one of my favourites by them, a nice instrumental, somewhere between battles and lightning bolt.
lightning bolt, 13 monsters.
