Forgotten Workers' Struggles – A punk evening
14.02.

Concert

Punk must return to the Volksbühne and the struggles of workers must return to a workers' theatre. In recent years, many places that punk bands could perform at in the middle of Berlin have disappeared. Thus, through this concert series, we're looking both to fight against something and to establish something new. We're a group of five Volksbühne stagehands, with the support of many other colleagues at the theatre. And beginning in February, we're presenting a punk concert (2 bands, 1 DJ) in the Roter Salon every two months.

There's more: Over the course of each concert, a labour conflict will be commemorated. These struggles come from both the past and the present. In general, there’s many labour disputes that have been forgotten. We want to remember the stories, the anger and the courage of our colleagues. Above all else, we want these stories to be told in the first place. For this we were able to acquire the talents of writer Anna Tüne. She's our advisor and prepares the texts on the labour disputes we have chosen.

Bands: Hyäne (Punk, Berlin), Imbiß (Punk, Berlin)
DJ: Schnürmeister Kåks (76-84 Punkrock Vinyl)
Labour Dispute: GM&S workers strike, 1990 to the present day, La Souterraine, Frankreich

Hyäne
Hyäne? Named after hyenas, this Berliner trio was founded in 2016 and creates wonderfully sad post-punk. Screaming guitar sounds, pumping bass lines and impulsive drum beats cushion accusatory vocals in a shamelessly brutal sound. A comparison to the early concoctions of Killing Joke is appropriate, even though Hyäne have much more acerbity on display. After a very promising 7-inch record in 2016 and tours through Spain and the USA, these three Berliners upped the ante in August 2018 with the highly compelling 12-inch Demontage und Zerfall (Disassembly and Decay). It's been a long time since Berlin nights have shown themselves to be this brutally honest and melancholically grim at the same time. More information: https://hyaene.bandcamp.com/

Imbiß
Triple-concentrated power-pop-punk from Neukölln: Imbiß is just waiting to smash your ears with a wild potpourri of their musical auditory pleasures. From tender to hard, sweet to sour and light to heavy – that's just one description of their first record eszet, flying off the shelves since the end of 2017. And rumour has it that they're already working away on their next disc. In this spirit, dance on you pigs, and never forget: „Pop is Pop. Funk is Funk. Imbiß is the Best. May God be Punk.“ More information: http://tanztihrschweine.de/
