Description
We don't play mainstream nonsense, here is a write up to sum us up...

"Maxwell's Dead present an agglomeration of uplifting punk rock party bangers, mixing ska and harmonies that could most certainly amount to that perfect plethora for any die hard lovers of NOFX or Rancid. They have just recorded their debut album which will be out in a few months and people are now partying with the band at dates across the UK so come along, join in the fun and hae a cheeky skank!"

HEUTE/TODAY Thursday June 26th 20h

Since their formation in 1984, Argies have stood out due to their libertarian poetry, the power of their
music and the understanding and coherence of their political attitude. Even though their roots can be
found in the British Punk from the seventies, nowadays their music witnesses influences from ska,
reggae, dub and good part of rock’n’roll elements and Latin rhythms. Practicing a philosophy of “do it
yourself” they have made a successful career while maintaining independence.
The name “Argies” derives from the English pejorative term for “Argentinean” which was most
popularly used by the British yellow press during the Falkland War in 1982. Far from being
nationalists, their name connects the band, the members of which define themselves as
internationalists, with debased minorities and marginalized people worldwide.
By the mid nineties, Argies left their hometown Rosario and moved to Buenos Aires. Since then,
playing more than 35 shows annually, they came to be known as one of the most frequently
performing acts in town. Starting in 1999, the band has regularly played extended tours in South
America and Europe. Until today, Argies have performed in 33 countries and played more than 600
shows in Europe. The Band functions like a collective of committed musicians all of which form part of
the project for undetermined periods, entering and leaving Argies with the same liberty that also
characterizes the work in the band and the way in which its members study and teach in joint efforts
across their differences. Over the years, the band’s particular method of making music has made
Argies a truly independent cultural movement.

ZEITGENOSSEN
Schön die ZEITGENOSSEN kommen wieder !
warum poppig? - weil Pop geil ist. wer nicht mitsingen kann, ist es selber schuld. wenn wir nach den proben durch unsere eigenen ohrwürmer gefoltert werden, dann ist es gut. außerdem liebt roland wilde effekte auf der gitarre. also poppen wir: für ihn, für uns, für euch.

warum alternativ? - weil too much pop das ohr verschleimt. außerdem ist Lars ein freund des schrägen Tons (der alte kapellmeister!) und roland wird leicht nervös, wenn..s zu schön wird. langweilig ist doof.

HEUTE/TODAY
20h
THE FRANCEENS (UK)
The Franceens are a 3-piece from York UK. They play high-energy "proper" rock and roll. The music is delivered with ferocity, honesty and precision. It's twangy, intense and full of raw power. They are an exceptionally hard-working band, playing anything up to 3 gigs per week, some of which have been known to be in the same day. They released their first EP entitled “Duck and Cover” in March 2013, on their own DIY label. This EP is now available for free download from their Facebook page. The band is a tight combination of catchy riffs and vocal hooks, backed up by a solid rhythm. The Franceens fight for DIY punk rock and believe in supporting your local live music scene, whilst also trying to discover and support new bands from further afield. In September 2013, The Franceens joined DIY music heavyweights; TNS Records. In October 2013, they had air time on BBC Radio 1 with the song "Attack".

Felidae Trick
After its founding by Omer Liechtenstein in Tel Aviv, the first sign of life from Felidae Trick came out on summer 2011, the release of "The Felidae Trick" album. Afterwards, Omer gathered together with the English producer Peter Walsh (Simple Minds, Peter Gabriel) to work on the EP She Goes Away. In spite of much earlier action, the new album Patrimony is Felidae's first "band" album, and the first to be recorded completely in Berlin, and so it represents the path Felidae has chosen to walk through. Patrimony was produced by the Slovenian producer Zare Pak (Siddharta), on summer 2013.
Some will notice an oriental flavour, while others shall detect a classical touch on this Indie Rock - New Wave band, which is influenced by bands like The Cure, Arctic Monkeys, Nirvana, The Beatles and more. That's no wonder, considering the diversity in its members' origin - one can find roots from Germany, Israel, Egypt, Turkey, Hungary and more.
Felidae Trick are: Omer Liechtenstein – vocals, Valentin Schuster – drums, Julin Pajzs – Guitar, Bass – Roni Meir

SIMEON SOUL CHARGER (US) 

ARE BACK 

Simeon Soul Charger is an American Psychedelic Rock band. Their music has been described as a pastiche of 70's psychedelic, folk, blues, progressive, and stoner rock. The quartet formed in 2008 where they began touring the United States amidst releasing 2 EPs Simeon Soul Charger (2009) and All Rather Dead (2010). Live shows deemed legendary quickly achieved them cult status with a musical work confidently compared to that of the really big names. In February 2011, they released their debut full-length album Meet Me in the Afterlife which amazed both enthusiastic fans and music magazines. By March of the same year the band moved to a Bavarian farmhouse where they set up a European homebase and have since made several hundred concert appearances across Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Italy. In 2012, the band recorded their latest oeuvre Harmony Square, a cinematic rock opera, already considered as a masterstroke not only in the independent scene.

Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars, (english)


the eighth full-length feature documentary from Brave New Foundation, director Robert Greenwald investigates the impact of U.S. drone strikes at home and abroad through more than 70 separate interviews, including a former American drone operator who shares what he has witnessed in his own words, Pakistani families mourning loved ones and seeking legal redress, investigative journalists pursuing the truth, and top military officials warning against blowback from the loss of innocent life.

Throughout Unmanned, Greenwald intersperses in-depth interviews with never-before-seen footage from the tribal regions in Pakistan to humanize those who have been impacted by our drone policy. This footage, alongside interviews with Pakistani drone survivors, describes the brutal reality of drone attacks ordered during the Obama Administration. The film highlights the stories of 16 year old Tariq Aziz, killed by a drone a mere week after he participated in a public conference in Islamabad in 2011, and a school teacher, Rafiq ur Rehman, grappling with the loss of his elderly mother and the hospitalization of his children due to a drone strike last year, showing how delicate life can be in this virtual war where no one is accepting responsibility for the casualties.

In candid conversations with experts like Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of State to Secretary of State Colin Powell; David Kilcullen former advisor to NATO and General Petraeus; and Vicki Divoli, former deputy legal advisor to the CIA’s counterterrorism Center, Unmanned reveals that these covert military actions are often imprecise and result in creating more enemies for the American people who have little knowledge of how drone targets are set and the killings carried out.

Mi.23.4. 19h "Demokratie: zwangsläufig korruptionsgefährdet?"

Eine Veranstaltungsreihe der Piraten-Regionalgruppe Westpfalz 2014


23. April 19h
Vortrag: "Demokratie: zwangsläufig korruptionsgefährdet?"
Ist es möglich, eine Demokratie so anzulegen, dass sie NICHT Opfer von Macht-Klüngeln und Finanzinteressen wird? Oder muss man sich gar nicht erst die Mühe machen, so etwas zu versuchen?
Es gibt Beispiele für gelungene Herrschaft durch die Beherrschten - allen voran die attische Demokratie im klassischen Athen. Welche Lehren wir für unsere Gesellschaft daraus ziehen können, was dies für Basisdemokratie oder Direkte Demokratie bedeutet, ist Gegenstand dieses Vortrags.
Referent: Dr. Ivo Dubiel, Volks- und Betriebswirt

17.4.14 MCN e.V. Movie : Noise And Resistance

HEUTE 17.4.14
20h
MCN e.V. Movie Night



"Voices from the DIY Underground", so lautet der Untertitel von Julia Ostertags und Francesca Araiza Andrades Dokumentarfilm Noise and Resistance. Das Kürzel "DIY" steht für "Do it yourself" und das hat in diesem Fall nichts mit Heimwerkern und Baumärkten zu tun, sondern mit einer Lebenspraxis und -haltung, die sich mit der Punk-Bewegung seit den späten 1970er Jahren als Gegenmodell zu den vorherrschenden Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsformen etabliert hat.Noise and Resistance ist eine Reise durch die Subkultur und zeigt, dass DIY bei Lichte betrachtet durchaus auch jenseits des Mainstream funktionieren könnte.

Mit Crass fing alles an. Und so ist es kein Wunder, dass die britische Politpunk-Band, die sich 1984 wieder auflöste, zu Beginn des Films eine zentrale Rolle spielt. Vom Beginn an verweigerte sichCrass den ökonomischen Mechanismen der Musikindustrie und behielt dank eines hohen Maßes an Eigeninitiative stets die maximale Kontrolle über das eigene Werk. Obwohl die Band kaum Konzerte außerhalb der britischen Insel gab, ist Crass heute längst eine Legende und wurde zu einem der wichtigsten Impulsgeber der DIY-Bewegung. Die beiden früheren Crass-Aktive Gee Vaucher und Penny Rimbaud, beide schon sichtlich ergraut und in die Jahre bgekommen, aber immer noch erfüllt vom Kampfesgeist früherer Jahre bilden in dem Film sozusagen die Keimzelle der Bewegung, denen mit Jon Active von Active Distribution und der niederländischen Hardcoreband Seein Red eine zweite Generation der DIY-Bewegung folgte. Von dieser Traditionslinie ausgehend, verfolgt der Film die Spuren von DIY in Barcelona, in Skandinavien, Großbritannien, Deutschland und Russland, spricht mit Musikern und Aktivisten auf Festivals, im Berliner Kultur- und WohnprojektSchwarzer Kanal am Südufer der Spree. Im raschen Wechsel springt der Film dabei von Land zu Land, von Interviewpartner zu Interviewpartner. Dennoch verliert man nie den Überblick, weil sich die Aussagen gegenseitig ergänzen und kommentieren.
