BUSTER SHUFFLE

Buster Shuffle have enjoyed a hugely successful couple of years. Sold-out gigs with Madness and Chas ‘n’ Dave was a fitting way to follow their own sold-out shows in Berlin, Vienna, Dresden, Dusseldorf, Munich, Bochum and Hamburg – as well a number of high profile festival slots in Germany (with Lee Scratch Perry), Czechoslovakia (with Frank Turner) and some massive arena shows in Italy with The Dropkick Murphys. In the UK support slots with the likes of The Rifles, The Blockheads, The Wombats and Shed Seven and Dandy Livingstone has seen the band’s reputation enhanced even more. Buster Shuffle’s remarkable year was capped by the success of the album ‘Do Nothing’ which continues to regularly chart on the Amazon Europe’s bestseller list. Radio play from BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music as well as XFM where front man Jet was a regular on Danny Wallace’s breakfast show.

Music is supposed to be about having fun and it’s practically impossible not to have a good time when listening to Buster Shuffle. The secret lies in the inspired song craft and arrangement skills of creative driving force, Jet Baker, who effortlessly fuses Cockney ska/pop with an authentic rock and roll sound and lyrics that are guaranteed to make you laugh. As British as fish and chips, its mischievous piano- bashing boogie, with songs about drunken arguments, crafty cats, anti-social night buses, dirty older women and messy divorces. Uncut magazine gave debut album, ‘Our Night Out’, four out of five stars, citing Buster Shuffle as ‘one to watch’, and the band have won a number of high-profile fans including BBC radio giant, Steve Lamacq and Pixies legend, Frank Black. Buster Shuffle's line-up comprises the virtuoso, creative behemoth that is Jet Baker on piano and lead vocals, the best rhythm section you could hope to find in the shape of Terry Mascall and on drums and Dave Gravy on bass, with James Stickley, giving heart and soul on guitar.

FIKKEN

Milchpunk • Berlin

Zärtlicher Milchpunk, tanzbar und dreckig, wild und verspielt, alles Liebeslieder, außer dem Superhit "Scheiss Berliner".


FIKKEN sind ein Quartett aus Berlin. Zusammengefunden aus alten Freunden der BandsDiving For Sunken Treasure, Der Feind, Huck Blues und SchOinentor. Vier junge Herren zwischen Asthmaspray und Rückenaufbautraining. Denn, die Dreißiger sind die neuen Vierziger. Und danach ist’s vorbei.
So dachten es sich auch Sebastian K., Benedikt G., Torben W. und Benjamin H., als sie sich dazu entschlossen, ihr Leben auf der Überholspur und den heimischen Pappkarton hinter sich zu lassen, um endlich respektable Musiker zu werden.
Es war Zeit für einen Umbruch, eine neue Liebe, eine neue Gang!
Es war Zeit für FIKKEN!


Acht Glasaugen, ganz privat,
schauen hier raus, aus dem Hinterkopf der Welt. Und da gibt’s Aussichten, mein Freund,
auf ein Leben nach der Spree!
und da fragt man sich
gibt's denn sowas überhaupt?
