& Sjöblom (The Exploding Boy)

The Cassandra Complex (USA)

Die Mitte der 80er Jahre gegründete Band The Cassandra Complex erlangte schnell Aufmerksamkeit für ihre ausgeprägte Verschmelzung von Elektronik, Postpunk-Ästhetik, gitarrengetriebenen Klanglandschaften und dem eindringlichen Gesang von Rodney Orpheus. Tracks wie "Moscow Idaho", "One Millionth Happy Customer" und "The War Against Sleep" katapultierten sie in ganz Europa zum Erfolg. Ausgedehnte Tourneen festigten ihre Position als eine der bedeutendsten Postpunk-Bands ihrer Zeit.

Rodney Orpheus arbeitete zusammen mit u.a.: Kevin Godley (10cc, Godley & Creme), Sinead O’Connor, Sisters of Mercy, Die Krupps, und Future Sound of London.

Vision Video (USA)

Vision Video is a Postpunk Gothrock band from Athens, Georgia that injects modern malaise into classic sounds of the 80’s.
The band pays homage to classics like the Chameleons and The Cure, while also bringing a refreshing modern element to the genre.
Thematically their music explores the effects of trauma on the human psyche and finding stability and agency in an insane world. Having served in the army and as a firefighter in the civilian world, lead singer and guitarist Dusty Gannon is no stranger to the darker proclivities of humanity and death itself. “I wanted to write music that helped people remember that it’s okay to not be okay, but that also doesn’t shy away from taking a stern look at the darker aspects of our flawed human existence.” says Gannon.
The band’s first two records were met with much critical praise, such as that from Pitchfork stating they create “dreamy tune tailor-made for the sort of wallflower who sprints to the dancefloor the instant the DJ drops “Age of Consent” or “Primary” at Goth Night”
Their debut LP “Inked in Red” and second LP “Haunted Hours”, were recorded and mixed by Tom Ashton of The March Violets at his Sub Von Studios in Athens, Georgia.
Vision Video will soon record their next LP “Modern Horror” at Maze Studios in Atlanta headed by Grammy award winning producer Ben Allen.
