Black Coffee, Xaviers & Marimba

(Crunchy Human Children Records / Warsaw, Poland)

Black Coffee is a band of three painfully central-eastern-European guys, whose names you won’t be able to pronounce anyway. They play a rough, noisy, yet meandering brand of garage punk. They’re a self-sufficient trio consisting of a guitarist/vocalist responsible for most of the writing, a drummer who’s also doing the visual stuff and a bassist, who’s recording and mixing the tracks. They gained some local and international recognition by supporting Hunx and His Punx in Warsaw and touring Europe with Charles Howl. They’re also weirdly popular in Swaziland, due to being mistaken for a South African DJ.
By the end of 2014, through a label they’re running together with a bunch of fellow Warsaw-based musicians, they’ve released a full-length album “what happened to the gang” as a purely DIY cassette, beautifully wrapped in sandpaper.


London-based improvisational instrumental group Xaviers. The band's members, Yuki Tsujii and Akihide 'Mon-Chan' Mona of Bo Ningen on guitar and drums respectively, and visual artist and Multi-instrumentalist Kenichi Iwasa, are infrequent collaborators; there's no rehearsal or discussion beforehand, their music instead exists almost entirely within the live arena, a furious collision of sounds that are inherently transient, manifest and then gone. 


MARIMBA is an ongoing side project by Paul Jones (Cindytalk, Mothership Convention, Breast, Stolen recordings) and Elia Buletti (Delmore fx, Yawning Warner, Das Andere Selbst). They met in Berlin on 2013 and share since then a multitude of interests and diverse influences from metaphysical bacterium to gate compression. They're creating instinctive natural sonic forms that evolve through improvisation and derangement of all the senses.
