U.B.T. live @ Močvara, Zagreb 12.11.2017. - video

I like this band, one of my favorites when it's about fresh domestic bands.. currently very active with live shows, in last year they played really a bunch of them.. apparently they are working on new recordings and I can't wait to hear it 'cause I think that they progressed a lot considering on their demo recording..
in meantime enjoy this short video and go watch them live somewhere and feel free to buy them some beers..
check other videos from this gig as well (Midnight Climax and Wild Mohicans) on this channel..

DISTORT ZAGREB festival 18.11. & 21.11.2017.

"Prije dvije godine popriličan nas je broj bendova na turneji zasipao s upitima za koncert u Zagrebu, a kako smo na sve ekspresno odgovorili MOŽE!, pojavila se ideja za organizaciju prvog Distort Zagreb festa.

Kao što i sami pretpostavljate, fest nije zamišljen kao događaj koji se obavezno mora održavati svake godine, više je produkt spleta okolnosti koji recimo nismo imali prošle godine, no zato imamo ove! Ovoga puta koncept je nešto drugačiji jer se gigovi održavaju na različitim lokacijama i s ubačenom dvodnevnom rupom koja većini vas neće zasmetati jer nedjelja je ionako skrojena za čamu i lijeno kotrljanje po domaćinstvu, a ponedjeljak je dan koji treba izbrisati.

Kroz fest će promarširati dva američka, jedan srpski i pet lokalnih bendova, s tim da je subota u Klaonici orijentirana više na hardcore punk, a utorak u Attack!-u na garažnu punk rock stranu."

                                                                                                                         Doomtown Records

NULLA OSTA / STAINED HAND / MIDNIGHT CLIMAX / DROTPAD 03.11.2017., Stara škola, Novi Marof

another one gig in Marof for which I was really, really looking forward to because of many reasons.. 1st of all I couldn't wait for proving myself that last time's low attendance was only because the gig was in the middle of the week and that some punk spirit isn't still dead in Marof, then when I just remember how it was a bloody hell of a gig and after party last time when Nulla Osta played in Marof, back then in 2008, almost 10 years ago, that was one of the best parties in my life, that's for sure.. unfortunately I knew that this time won't be that wild 'cause I was working the other day in the morning, but I'm already fine with that..
this time I was going alone and when I arrived there were already a lot of familiar faces which was the fact that brings smile all over my face, it was even hard to greet everyone I know and which I didn't see for a while..
shortly after 21:00 gig started and in charge to open it this time were a young punk band from Zagreb named Drotpad.. well, I don' like this style of punk and they were kinda boring to me and even I got the feel that I wasn't the only one feeling like this.. also think that they played a little too long, or maybe it just seemed to me because in one moment their bass player was having some troubles, broken string or something so she was waiting for someone to lend her bass guitar and that took a while.. I mean Jan from Agathocles was playing bass with only two strings back then and it was a way more complicated music, hehe..
anyhow, after they finished stage was taken by another one young hc punk band from Zagreb, Midnight Climax which are very active lately, if  I can notice, as with live shows (in last year, since they exist, they played in almost every city in Croatia where punk gigs actually happens) they are also preparing new material which should be out soon.. fast hc punk with short songs, on some with dual vocals, they played few covers and one of them was, If I get it well by Negative Approach and yes, you can easily say they are influenced with american hc punk from 80's/90's.. on the first sight they have everything what's needed to be a great hc punk band but for my fucked up and selective music taste there's just something missing and I watched their show somehow indifferent.. but they sure were better then Drotpad..
after short pause, Stained Hand from Karlovac.. this was already their second visit to Marof, they played benefit for BASK also, some 8 months ago.. well, it was nice opportunity to see them sober because last time I was drunk like hell.. but my 1st impression on them stayed unchanged, they are good band, but I don't like those slow parts and breakdowns.. except that really nice hc punk crust on trails toward powerviolence, they sure got potential..
and for the end, after some longer tuning and preparations, dinosaurs from Pula reinforced with young power on the drums.. at the beginning they reminded us on the last time when they were playing here and asking who of the crowd was on that gig, so obviously Marof remained in good memory to them also.. 1st song sounded kinda strange like weird acoustic version of Nulla Osta but after that things  come to their place and they provided us with dangerously good hc punk crust with two distorted basses (I'm really into those bass only bands lately, hehe), fast, uncompromising and straight to your head.. they played a lot of their older hits like Posljednji evolucijski krug, Ne vjeruj, to me maybe favorite by them Na krilima slobode, but also few fresher from latest album "Kad utihnu psi...".. pleasantly filled Stara škola was enjoining one more great show by Nulla Osta.. my full support always goes to young bands but once again veterans was demonstrating how it should be done..
in the end I'm happy and glad that gig in Marof once again looked like we are all used to, good and friendly bands, good fun and most important a lot of people (as L told me there was 60 tickets sold, all together with bands around 80 people) from all over - Zagreb, Karlovac, Rijeka, Varaždin, Čakovec, Ormož and so on.. I really like and miss such intercity gigs which were so usual and normal before, I mean that's how it should be, that's everything..
even if this report ends up somehow boring and short, well I was there only few hours during the show itself, immediately after the gig I was on my way to home to catch some sleep and to be in at least little normal state next morning at the work, but it was really good concert and I hear that later it was cheerful and interesting after party, considering on who all were there I didn't even doubt it..
until the next time, cheers and stay well!..

18:00 A.L.F. Behind The Mask: The Story Of The People Who Risk Everything To Save Animals, dokumentarni film, 70 min

Dokumentarac koji iskreno i promišljeno otkriva ljude koji stoje iza pokreta za oslobađanje životinja (Animal Liberation Front). Ovaj pokret bori se za prava životinja, a pojedinci unutar njega voljni su i prekršiti zakone kako bi postigli svoj cilj. Zapanjujuće snimke aktivista ALF-a u akciji zajedno s njihovim objašnjenjima daju nam uvid u kompleksnu sliku grupe koja je spremna riskirati sve za dobrobit životinja.

20:00 "ALT-RIGHT, novi fenomen ili novo američko pakiranje prokušane europske prakse?", diskusija, Edgar Buršić

U Hrvatskoj je u zadnjih desetak godina došlo do svojevrsne “amerikanizacije” društvenog, ekonomskog, političkog i kulturnog prostora. Djelomično preko desnih kršćanskih udruga i inicijativa, djelomično preko internetske propagande i aktivizma sloboidnotržišnih opcija. Do sada u okolici nije falila klasična radikalna desnica, a od sada izgleda neće faliti ni “Alternativna desnica”, odnosno, sve ono što ide pod američkom novotarijom zvanom ALT-RIGHT. No je li stvarno novost tzv. ALT-RIGHT, je li stvarno samo američka priča? Čini se da nije, neke su prakse u Europi (Italija, Francuska, Španjolska) poznate i više desetljeća, razlika je u tome što su dolaskom na vlast Donalda Trumpa takvi fenomeni dobili novi moment, a internet omogućava prelijevanje priče u druge dijelove svijeta neovisno o lokalnom kontekstu.
U sklopu diskusije biti će prikazan i kratki dokumentarac o ALT-RIGHT-u.

22:00 Koncert - D.J. & The Wootchyak , Gužva u Bajt, TBA

D.J. & the Wootchyak (Pula)
Melodic hardcore punk

18:00 The Antifascists, dokumentarni film, Grčka/Švedska, 75 min

Već se neko vrijeme na ulicama diljem Europe vodi rat niskog intenziteta, a vodi se oko fašizma. Ovaj nas dokumentarac vodi iza maski militantnih grupa pod nazivom antifašista. 2013. godine grupa naoružanih nacista napada miran prosvjed u Stockholmu na kojem je nekoliko ljudi ozlijeđeno. U Grčkoj, neonacistička stranka Zlatna zora postaje treća najveća stranka po rezultatima na izborima, u Malmöu aktivist Showan Shattak završava u komi nakon što su on i njegovi prijatelji napadnuti noževima od strane nacista. U ovom prikazu antifašista u Grčkoj i Švedskoj upoznajemo ključne osobe koje objašnjavaju svoj stav o svojoj radikalnoj politici istovremeno preispitujući razinu vlastite nasilnosti i militantnosti.
Film se premijerno prikazuje u Hrvatskoj.

20:00 Okrugli stol - predstavljanje - SAWA Zupanja - razgovor s organizatorima hardcore punk festivala SAWA - predstavljanje festivala i kolektiva
Siniša Lastavica - Sinki i Antun Debak

21:00 Kapitalizam i kriza u Hrvatskoj, predavanje, Bojan Tomić

U kratkom predavanju/diskusiji iznijet će neke statističke pokazatelje koji se tiču kapitalizma u Hrvatskoj, pokušat će definirati uzroke i posljedice loše ekonomske situacije u kojoj se nalazi Hrvatska kao i neke od modela rješavanja ekonomskih problema koji su u suprotnosti sa neoliberalnim dogmama o privatizaciji i liberalizaciji tržišta. Uz to bit će govora i o modelima političkog organiziranja koji se mogu potencijalno suprotstaviti negativnim tendencijama unutar kapitalizma.

Bojan Tomić - diplomirani inženjer elektrotehnike, gitarist i vokal u hardcore punk bendu Kriva Istina. Područja interesa su mu politička ekonomija kapitalizma, ekonomska demokracija te razni oblici lijevog političkog aktivizma.
