Balkan Anarchist bookfair 11.-12.09.2015. @ Nigdjezemska, Zadar (Croatia)

Balkan Anarchist bookfair is an annual anarchist event that changes location each year.
This year BASK will take place in Autonomous cultural Centre Nigdjezemska in Zadar!

Why Zadar ? About the space:
After two years of restoring and cleaning the building in abandoned military barracks, this spring the Autonomous cultural Centre Nigdjezemska opened it’s doors. Nigdjezemska arose out of the missing space in Zadar for people to organize activities like d.i.y gigs, discussion and workshops, movie screenings, freeshop, bicycle repairing, gardening and other activities on self-organized and horizontal level!

Anarchist bookfairs are organized in different cities over the world and open space for discussion and exchange about anarchist topics. The idea of Balkan anarchist bookfair is to connect different anarchist people and groups and to be a weekend, on which we can meet each other, discuss, question, exchange local experiences and struggles and develop perspectives for local and also international resistance.

The bookfair lives through participation and solidarity of different people and groups. Balkan Anarchist Bookfair was first organised in 2003 and since then it happened in Ljubljana, Zagreb, Sofia, Skopje, Thessaloniki, Mostar and Zrenjanin, which created solidarity network through the Balkan and beyond.

Please let us know in advance, if you want to do a presentation, discussion, book stall or if you have other suggestions for the weekend! We only have limited sleeping places.
So please let us know in advance if you need a sleeping place (How many are you? Are there any needs that we have to consider choosing your sleeping place?)
We are looking forward to hear from you and welcome your ideas! 

SOON MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM

KONTATTO live @ Mucchio Selvaggio Fest, Bologna 2.05.2015. - video

nice one.. just can't realized why there aren't more back vocals by Koppa like it was before..  I like the chaos and sing-a-long during the last two songs, Cospirazioni and Perche from 8:50min..

ČEBULA #2 fanzine

yeah, I know, I'm lazy and slow since this came out in August last year, but better now then never..
after reading this 'zine I caught myself thinking about how it's funny that there's something in human nature making us to like reading/hearing/talking about someone's personal and private things, was it secretly reading of brother's/sister's/friend's diary when we were kids or reading some personal 'zines or was it just gossiping about your neighbor with someone during your sunday morning coffee after heavily drinking night.. I think, I'm the first one who will say that I don't give a damn about other peoples stuff, I have my own problems, etc, and that's kinda true, but whether we like to admit it or not there's something that attract us into reading/talking about such things and that's pretty "normal", I guess..
and that's exactly what this zine is about.. while reading this I was having a feeling like I read Masha's diary about things and stuff that happened since the last/1st number.. so I won't bragging much about the content this time, just to mention that you can read something about everyday life struggle (sometimes harsh and sometimes nice, just like life itself really is..), relationships, friends, traveling/gig reports, one interview and two extensive 'zine reviews..
everything comes on 52 pages and A5 format, in of course, cut and paste style complemented with again great artwork..
nothing more to say, except this is one really nice 'zine and if you're at least a little "normal", hehe, you'll like it.. looking forward to read new issues of this 'zine and until then go check if this is still available on the following e-mail..

MOLOTOV #2 anarhistički glasnik




"Molotov" je anarhistički glasnik iz Babušnice posvećen razotkrivanju, negiranju i obaranju autoritarnosti oličene kroz patrijarhat, državu i crkvu. U njemu pozivamo na samoobrazovanje i angažman na tradicijama anarhističke teorije i prakse - nekadašnje, sadašnje i buduće. Naša krilatica je "Najnasilniji element u društvu je neznanje".

AKC NIGDJEZEMSKA SQUAT info


"Civil initiative which occupied and restored a ruinous boiler room in the ex-military barracks “Stjepan Radić” in Zadar, Croatia. We intend to use this place as an autonomous social/cultural centre, self-governed by horizontal DIY principles of cooperation and solidarity.

After two years of restoring and cleaning the building in abandoned military barracks, this spring the Autonomous cultural Centre Nigdjezemska opened it’s doors. Nigdjezemska arose out of the missing space in Zadar for people to organize activities like d.i.y gigs, discussion and workshops, movie screenings, freeshop, bicycle repairing, gardening and other activities on self-organized and horizontal level!"

some new bands out there

I talked recently with some friends about setting up some gigs, and when we have to decide which bands will we include there were none to think of, at least none that didn't play already 1000 times here, it means just few bands are really active, have shows every a little, same crew of people circulating all the time, and there aren't really some choice when you need a band to support some bands from abroad which are on tour etc..
and just when I had concluded that situation on the scene, when it's about the bands, can't be worse some new bands began to appear from time to time..
here are few of them, to be clear this is not any official listing of new bands, just few of them that I noticed lately..

I'm sure many of you already hear about LEFT TO STARVE from Karlovac which are interesting young band (actually not so new, they are active somewhere about a year now) playing crust punk with some dark hc and grind influences.. they are pretty concert active, with bunch of gigs behind them, have recorded a selftitled EP released on tape, and are preparing for euro tour with Bosonogo Djetinjstvo in September this year..

another new band from Karlovac is ARSTA with I would say some more modern sound, some kind of blackened crust, to me not so interested as Left to Starve for example, but worth of your attention.. they also have some recordings and you can check it here: http://islesofarsta.bandcamp.com/releases

ACCIDENT are from Zagreb, containing members from many ex or still active Zg punk bands.. on first not really my type of music, but as more I listen to them the better they are.. let's say hc punk with Disorder touch, and that's not bad at all.. check them out here: http://accident.bandcamp.com/releases

and for the end, for me the biggest surprise and favorites from those stated here, I didn't expect to hear such kind of a band here soon, are DISBAJA from Zagreb/Požega/Županja.. I actually heard for them few weeks ago from a friend and last week they already had a gig in Mochvara.. there's not much to say, raw punk in veins of Disclose, but also some ex-yu hc punk style is also present here, I think it can't be better than this combination.. they still don't have any recordings but you can check some videos from rehearsal here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=disbaja&lclk=year&filters=short%2Cyear

that's all I can think of now, if you know for some good new bands don't hesitate to notice me.. and who the hell knows maybe this year will be a year of interesting new bands, as few last years were for zines.. maybe it isn't everything dead as it seems..
