sunflowerstarfish + farfour

Poplars and Rocks at Madame Claude is back this July issue with Sunflowerstarfish and Farfour, presenting two new electronic projects in town. Sunflowerstarfish are four guys who have partly been in local acts before, such as Kamas, now exploring a more indie electro sound, based on eighties keyboards and diverse use of drums. Farfour is the new solo project by Sean Barrett, also known from his contribution in The History of Colour TV or his collaboration with Blue Stork (whose first EP release was celebrated tonight). As Farfour he ventures into cosmic travels.

Madame Claude, Friday, July 6th, 10pm first band on. Admission donation. On decks Rad Spin Rotate Club.

Moon Wheel, Blue Stork, mACACO mAU & A-Zink

We pretend it’s a year like every other and continue inviting your favourite new acts and our favourite forgotten geniuses to Madame Claude. This January Poplars and Rocks presents:

MOON WHEEL is swedish-born, australian ex-inhabitant, berlin-resident Olle, whose music is a spaced-out, trippy venture into moog-smoked tribal preserves of the dark side of the moon. Somewhere between Moon Dog and Creedence Clearwater Revival he lets his spaceship land. If he is not doing so, you find him making art. Listen here to Moon Wheel on Soundcloud.

BLUE STORK is old Billy, the kid, as his hoodies call him in Neukölln. We had the honour of presenting him before, when his band name was longer and his oeuvre smaller. Now as time goes by, it tends to turn these things around and BLUE STORK comes along with new, more elaborate sounds that are still rooted between heavy drone noise and soft shoe-gaze. Billy might have finished school in the meantime, as his latest Afterschool EP is suggesting, his new home he found at any rate already in a small label, Holy Page. Listen here to Blue Stork’s latest and first full length album Hss Mks M Hpp, that is also for free DOWNLOAD.

Third at the night of the three holy kings is another old aquaintance: danish escapist mACACO mAU, aka Brian, shares with the other two an undecided and both-embracing life between art and music; as passionately and wild his paintings, so are his sound worlds, brushed with shreddered noise and heavy beats. He will be joined that night by spanish fellow brother in mind A-Zink. Listen here to mACACO mAU’s latest album Alaqia, also for FREE download.


On decks less evocative and more accessible tunes stretched over a vortex between psychedelic punk and art disco which is Rad Spin Rotate Club.

Friday, January 6th 2012, Madame Claude, Lübbener Straße, Kreuzberg. The live show starts 9.30 sharp. Admission is as usual your free decision.
