1. Jack Cades
The Jack Cades have been compared to the Velvet Underground, the Byrds, Jefferson Airplane, Bands from the Teenage Shutdown compilations, and many more, which probably says one thing: they don’t fit in a box.
Mike and Elsa (well kwown from Missing Souls and Baron Four) Mole (Baron Four. Embrooks) and Alex have been playing in this new project together for less than a year, have released their first LP “Music for children” on Dirty Water Records and a 45 on Dangerhouse Skylab and are recording a new album in a couple of months. Their live performances are not to be missed!

Music for children
2. Los Malinches
LOS MALINCHES „Pure 60s South American Nuggets“ (Bananas)
Latin-American Garage Psych from Spain! Los Malinches were founded in 2016 with the intention to revive the sound of “Nueva Ola”, Garage, Surf and “Psicodélico” as it was played in the late 60s by bands all over Latin America! Soon followed the first recording in purely analogue production, and several 45s appeared between others “Nunca”. Last year the Los Malinches released their first LP “En el Agua” on the legendary Lisbon garage label “Groovie Records”.
They purr and roar and serenade all in spanish language! Their lyrics speak of lack of love, psychedelic drugs, mythological animals, vagabinds, death and enjoying life as it happens they say. Enjoy the sound that Godess Pachamama put in their souls!

3. THE MOURNING AFTER – Garage-Fuzz-Explosion from North England!
The now legendary THE MOURNING AFTER started blasting out garage punk to audiences all over in 1987. After their debut gig in Sheffield they fuzzed with all the charting indie bands of the time…..Primal Scream, Spacemen 3 or My Bloody Valentine. THE MOURNING AFTER played a number of wild shows until 1999.
Then they disappeared in their caves and graves and nobody knows why but the day came they raised from their hidden tombs and “TALL, DARK & GRUESOME” came out on Screaming Apple Records presenting the world again fuzzed up Garage with a snotty attitude! Last year they released “THE TENTH CENTURY”, their masterpiece on Heavy Soul Records.
“Heavy Soul! Records is very excited, but slightly scared to welcome one of it’s favourite bands to the household”

4. Colour Collection
Brandnew band from the Netherlands! The latest psychedelic beat sensation! Stay tuned for more! They are in the making of pictures and recordings! 1st gig in Germany!
5. LES SYNAPSES from Le Havre, Normandy! The ‘Frenchbeat Jetset’ is returning to Germany, this time with their first and brand new album in the bag!!! For more than 20 years LES SYNAPSES have made a name for themselves, mainly as an energetic live band. Extensive tours across Europe brought them to Spain, Portugal, Italy, England, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. Even though the band’s main musical focus is French Freakbeat, they regard this sound as a global phenomenon and therefore like to embrace other languages as well. At their live shows they love to switch from their mother tongue to Spanish, Dutch, English and sometimes even German! Soundwise, LES SYNAPSES settle for turned-on lysergic madness combined with raw Garage-Fuzz that’ll lift you into psyched-out spheres! Expect a wild and ‘punkadelic’ performance by one of France’s hottest live acts!!!
6. THE WOGGLES
Let’s freak out with the Full Force Garage Attack from the U.S.A.!
Fusing pure rock and soul from vintage sources into their own singular sound, the Woggles lay it down hard and loud but with majesty. Their beats and riffs are as strident as Manfred’s swagger and strut onstage. The Woggles sound is a contribution to early rock’n’roll and R’n’B to ’60s garage rock, british invasion, ’60s soul and forward.’
Having played in the past with Johnny Cash, Link Wray, The Zombies and nearly every garage rock group worth its salt, they are coming back again on tour to europe.
Listen to waiting for the rain!

Martin Hemmel (Munich) The Lord of fuzz!
I am really happy and honoured that Martin will spin his outstanding collection at my first festival in berlin!
I had the pleasure and pain to experience his soul captivating sets before and once you get caught there is no way out of his musical trip to the long lost depth of your soul! He makes you weep and creep for the best reason: you love his music that ranges from psychedelic garage with an oriental touch over crazy R’n’B and Freakbeat to arrive at some canadian teenbeat ballads!

The Wee Four – Weird
Go Away – The Plague
M.G. & The Escorts – A Someday Fool
The Tigermen – Tiger Girl
Damon – Poor Poor Genie

Musically, he settles mostly for primitive 60s garage & teen sounds, both moody and angry ones but also some excursions into psychedelic wIlderness here and there…
