Franco on Trial

DVD available here

Could a prosecution in Argentina become the last major trial against a 20th century fascist dictatorship?

Franco on Trial: The Spanish Nuremberg? is the new documentary by Lucía Palacios and Dietmar Post. After the success of Franco´s Settlers, their first encounter with Franco’s dictatorship, they now tackle one of the most undisclosed chapters of European history: the allegedly organized extermination that took place in Spain under General Franco’s fascist dictatorship between 1936 and 1975. To this day no one has been prosecuted for the regime’s systematic atrocities. Now for the first time, an Argentinian judge, María Servini, has issued 24 international arrest warrants against representatives of the Franco dictatorship.
Franco on Trial raises the question: will the so-called “Argentinian Complaint” become the Spanish Nuremberg?

Tapetopia 001 - GDR Underground Tapes 

Order the LP here

tapetopia is a series of vinyl releases based on cassettes from the East Germany’s 80s underground, particularly from the East Berlin „Mauerstadt“ music scene, featuring original lay-outs and track lists. For over 30 years after their initial “release” the music on these tapes was neither available on vinyl nor CD, but they were important statements in the canon of the GDR subculture. Despite the miniscule number of original cassettes in circulation at the time many of the bands were popular in countercultural circles, a factor that made them highly suspect among the government’s own inner circles. tapetopia is edited by Henryk Gericke. 


Glen - Crack 

Order the LP or download here

GLEN was formed in 2015 in Berlin, Germany, by multi instrumentalist and film score composer Wilhelm Stegmeier and greek visual artist, film maker and musician Eleni Ampelakiotou. Coming from a cinematic background, and having collaborated on several films and audio visual projects (TEENAGE RESPONSE, ( I AM HERE / ICH BIN HIER , DOS plus - BIRTH OF A SPHINX), they created GLEN as a prismatic multifacetted musical persona , who can not be easily assigned to a specific genre. Listening to just one track or even one part of a track can misguide the impression of this album, like seeing just one single frame of a movie.

"This is a little gem of an album!" (music blog Dayz of Purple and Orange)

Gestrüpp - Limpe Fuchs

LP and download available here

Limpe Fuchs writes about her work on Gestrüpp
I am a composer and performer of acoustic and visual events. In the studio I am lacking the visual element. Therefore I like to work with multitracking. As a soloist I listen to my field recordings and integrate them into my new compositions. I do love radio plays and that is how I create a sort of audio theatre with the aid of my very special instruments and noises.
