Malaise live @ Death Disco – 12.9.2014

malaise live @ Deathdisco 12.9.2014

(By Fondas SumerSon)

Malaise has always been one of my all time favorite gothic rock bands. They are the very first Scandinavian band that I ever listened to over 15 years ago and I instantly became addicted to their tunes for. I , as part of the Malaise Greek Street Team, had the pleasure of watching them perform live in Gothenburg (2009) and Malmo (2013), so I had witnessed the Malaise live-experience, first hand. That’s why I had been trying for a long time, to get the guys in contact with the concert organizers in Athens, so that Greek Goths would get the chance to see them perform live.

Finally, Leo Skiadas decided to give it a try and booked them for their first ever gig in Greece. The addition of Come with Reverse as the opening act, made this event even more special in every aspect.

So the most anticipated Goth Rock gig of the last years, finally took place at Death Disco, last Friday. Without any exaggeration, it was the first time that I saw Death Disco so full of people in a Goth Rock gig. Over 130 people had gathered to witness this big music event and they were all in for a treat!

At 22:00 o’clock, Come With Reverse came on stage. This was their third appearance in front of the Athenian audience, since their first gig with Inkubus Sukkubus back in 2012 and their own gig next year. People really waited for their return impatiently, looking forward to the band’s new songs.
The crowd’s reaction after each song, made them feel like they were not just an opening act. The guys were in high spirits, performing in a very intense and passionate way that left a lot of people speechless. I will never stop saying that the band’s singer is one of the most charismatic vocalists of the current goth/dark wave scene. They played a 50 min. show, including mainly songs from their forthcoming album, without neglecting hits like “Mandolism” or “Evolution of Broken minds” from their debut ep.

Their new album, “Composing Serenity” will be out next year, so be alert.

Their exact setlist:

A living moment
Sullen look
Lust pace
Retour an dich
All that love
My way (Frank Sinatra cover)
Crawling in a wire
Waiting for the sunsets

After a small break, the lights went out and a symphonic melody and a lot of smoke filled the club. Juho, Fredrik and Martin, one by one, appeared on stage and the whole club started shouting enthusiastically. The “goth-rock-panic” was about to begin. “Bitter Waters” was the opening track and the fans were quickly driven into a moshing frenzy!

The band was performing so vividly, that Juho broke the strings of his guitar, after the very first song they played. After a 10 min break because of this technical problem, Malaise returned on stage and “Walking through the Wonderland” from their legendary “52 Ways to Die” album was the follow up: powerful electronic beats mixed with heavy guitars made the entire club dance like hell once again.

Martin’s voice is exactly the same after all these years. He is such a great singer and frontman and he is one of the main reasons Malaise are such a unique band. Juho and Fredrik are an amazing guitar duo too. Their energy on stage, as well as their flawless playing, lead Malaise to a higher level. The guys played for 1 hour and 10 min., performing songs from all of their excellent releases, reminding everyone why this band is the greatest electro-goth act of all times.

Special mention needs to be made to the performance of their mega hit “Wait for the Ghost”, during which The Malaise Greek street team raised a tower. The band seemed to enjoy this as much as the fans. This was definitely one of the best and most intense goth gigs ever. It was worth the wait, no doubt.

Their exact setlist:

Bitter Waters
Walking Through the Wonderland
Something Else
Gods of War
No Confusion
Wait for the Ghost
Hollow Dream
We are Colliders
Assimilate (Skinny Puppy cover)

After the gig, Malaise stayed at the aftershow party, talked with their fans, signed cds and even danced with us until the early morning light… Many thanks to the daring Leo Skiadas for making one of our everlasting dreams come true, by bringing Malaise in Athens.
Until the next time…. WE ARE COLLIDERS !

Double Eyelid – Seven Years

double eyelid

Toronto based act Double Eyelid recently released their album “Seven Years”. 10 beautiful tracks by singer Ian Revell, guitarist Karl Mohr, and keyboardist Benjamin Mueller-Heaslip that carry the atmosphere of an industrial goth cabaret.

Influenced by David Bowie, Bauhaus, Marilyn Manson and many others, Double Eyelid managed to write an album that is made to impress.

And impressing it is…

Well balanced parts of glam rock (“John”,” Dead Is Better”) gothic mystery (“Black Box”,  “She’s Falling”, “The Hanged Woman” ) and industrial goth (“Diamond Cutter”, “The Stranger”) make this album a must…

Bored Teenagers Vol.7 28 Great British Punk Originals ’77-’82 – Compilation


Being bored back in the 70’s, could turn you into a punk rock hero. Or not? Anyway, after six series of well documented british punk we come to the seventh volume. Safety pins on and down the road then.

First we’ve got The Singles with their single “Adolf Hitler/Mercy“, a nice starter of urban british punk. In The Gym happily follow to kick your heads off and then Katz with a satisfying combo of six songs.

Being a band from Portishead, does not necessarily means that you’ll be named Portishead, to the contary Chaos UK is fine. The hardcore veterans offer their single “Summer of Hate/I Wanna Be Left Alone” in the name of alive and pacey punk. Then The Hobbs arrive for a couple of rounds at the local but only when The What and The Vendettas are in town.

The compilation closes with Skidmarx, a nervous quartet from the east, and the straight punk by North Londoners System X.

Rather than searching around for lost and forgotten singles of this particular bristish punk period, the Bored Teenagers series puts a disordered era in order and a nostalgic smile in your face.

Full Steam Metal Racket – UPDATE v.3

Full Steam Metal Racket – UPDATE v.3

tribe4mian - Full Steam Metal Racket - Update v.3

Can you believe how much has been pulled out of thin air without time to pre-plan any of this?  Only eleven days have transpired from the shocking official announcement of cancellation on August 1st to today.  Now here we are with the fourth (an original posting plus three updates) tribe4mian installment on the Full Steam Metal Racket weekend festival.

A huge standing ovation and round of applause to all who have worked tirelessly and around the clock to bring a weekend of delightful pleasures and merriment to so many saddened souls.  As we have all witnessed, life is full of unexpected twists and turns.  It’s up to each of us to make due with what’s been handed to us, to join forces when need be, and to never lament over what could have been.

So come on all you contraptors… it’s full steam ahead!


FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE:  Full Steam Metal Racket PLAN B The Steampunk Experience that was at Alt-Fest Plus

DATES:  15 August at 6:00 PM – 17 August at 11:00 PM in UTC+01

LOCATION:  Llanfyllin Workhouse, Llanfyllin


HOSTED BY:  BB BlackDog and Neon Tiger Productions UK

For more travel information, click HERE

For information on on-site and/or nearby accommodations, click HERE

Link to the Workhouse Charity site, HERE

As Part of the Whole Alt-Fest Event we were running “The SteamPunk Experience”. With its demise, we’re still running an event.

– 2 Stages:  The Black Rose Stage and The S.O.P.H.I.E. Stage
– A Games Area, a separate Market/Workshop Area

CURRENT LINEUP AND TIMES:  Come back often to check as we’ll update as more acts are added.

MARKET AND DEMONSTRATIONS:  Open from 10:00 AM each day

YOUR HOSTS FOR THE WEEKEND:  Montague Jacques Fromage assisted by Maureen, and Lieutenant Jager Scnitzel


    An intimate indoor space for up to 150 people, The Black Rose Stage is inside the beautiful, historic Dolydd buildings. Spaces are very much first come, first served so you’ll need to be fairly quick off the mark.  First Come, First Served
    Out in the courtyard, The S.O.P.H.I.E Stage offers space for a much bigger crowd who are prepared to brave the elements!  Again, though, spaces are first come, first served.

We have organised the running orders so that the stages will host alternating sets, with a short break between, so our guests don’t need to choose between artists, as they might at other festivals.

tribe4mian - The Dark DesignTHE DARK DESIGN

The Dark Design are possibly best described by the terms Steam Punk or Victoriana.

We come from a world much like yours, but where the romance of discovery and adventure is still aflame.

Electricity is still considered by many akin to witchcraft and the world thrums to the beat of iron, the hiss of steam and the click of clockwork.

We write songs about Airships, Paddle Steamers, Satanic Nannies and Mermaid Queens with thoughtful prose and with infectious melodies. We are currently recording our debut Album Twelve Tall Tales…

tribe4mian - Daniel Malheur (Margit Louise Schwed)DANIEL MALHEUR MONOKELPOP

The Lilly of the Valley, from New York to Europe, from the seniors to the Troubadour founder of MonokelPop …

Accompanied by the famous gramophone orchestra with its own special performance of 20’s pop art.

From a Crackly record sound, come famous dance orchestras, coupled with the warm tone of the Lord of mishap, they flatter themselves into the ears of the illustrious audience.

In his unique 78 rpm accompanied Karaoke Show, he kidnaps his audience in the golden or not quite so golden 20’s and the dawn of the talkies. Original gramophones, stylish accessories, breathtaking wardrobe changes and spontaneous comic repartee, make the charm of an evening with the Lord Saloon tenor.

Far from the “20’s mainstream“, from. Spicy foxtrot, seductive tango, wicked songs, let the perfect illusion of the 5 o’clock tea in the saloon style of the 20’s rise.

tribe4mian - The Mysterious FreakshowTHE MYSTERIOUS FREAKSHOW

As a a more mature collective (ah hum) … we have all had many musical adventures throughout the years and all work on other projects still.

Miss Pinkski works closely with her producer KIKI in France to create weird electronic wonders. The SteamPUNK Animal (aka Con Harries) is a multi-instrumentalist and our drummer. She plays trombone for the award winning SKA/reggae band Melosa and Skaper too. Phineas Gauge lives with his head in a bass amp listening to the heaviest & loudest of music and has a number of bands under his belt including The Toretz and The Two Hats – He is also one half of the anarchic radio show Revolutionary Radio. Mr Thomas Rosenbloom is another multi-instrumentalist who plays drums with Skaper and a number of other bands. This is his first venture into the world of guitar – and we welcome him with open arms!!!

tribe4mian - Ash MandrakeTHE ASH MANDRAKE ACT

Incorporates music, loop machines, stories and comedy. He designed the double necked guitar, hats and costumes. This is folk rock, but many styles are used. He has been described as imaginative; an incredibly skilled musician and songwriter; unique, brave, and completely naturalistic.

Message from Ash:  Let there be no pretences: I’m unsigned and I’ve built a tiny business from doing things that come naturally. I live on the road in vehicles and tour constantly. I started touring in 2008. I took three seats out of my Nissan Micra, put a futon in; and managed to do 137 gigs all over the UK, before driving it into the ground (I’m on vehicle number 5 now). I moved out of bricks and mortar in Feb 2012. This is the antithesis of X Factor. This approach involves putting one foot in front of the other; bare foot if necessary. If you really mean it, you’ll find shoes along the way.

tribe4mian - Jezebel SteeleJEZEBEL STEELE

MC and Burlesque Performances

Jezebel Steele is the inner performer of a mild mannered woman from Sheffield (although nobody would believe that), and anyway nowadays she lives on the other side of the Pennines.

She made her burlesque debut in 2010, and although she believes that it wasn’t very good it did make her determined to improve and get back on stage again.

Her style has never been described as graceful, but audiences seem to like her comedic take on burlesque and that’s just how she likes it; “if an audience laughs in the first minute, you know you’ve got them on side”.

After realising that it’s not easy to get stage time when you’re new, she followed some good advice and set up her own night; for some reason, it turned out to be successful and she is currently working towards her ambition of “taking over the world… one tassel at a time!”

She teaches burlesque and organises other charity events, and just sometimes she can be found at her day job.


tribe4mian - Needle PoppetsNEEDLE POPPETS

The stripped sound delivers both power and intrigue, drawing inspiration from the likes of The Dresden Dolls, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Divine Comedy. Mixing theatre and punk, the music is risqué and often refuses to behave.

They have just released their debut album, Fame to the Nation, and are gigging around the Midlands and beyond – hopefully at a venue near you soon!

tribe4mian - The King Bains

Deep in the dank tangled shadows of the durge nebula our hope was born.

When the rising dawn sun pressed her searing lips upon the fallen corkstone, and the wind set sail the sweet leaf of our stolen youth, the Leviathan was seen lurching from the depths with two warriors atop the mighty beast.

Bathed in steam and fuelled by fuzz they wielded high their beacon to lead the charge.



tribe4mian - Red RuffRED RUFF

Red Ruff are an a capella harmony trio. Expect a multi-coloured mix of songs about everything from cats to car engines Red Ruff are Jen Aitken, Sue Devine and Nansy Ferrett.

We write and perform our own three-part harmonies, covering tragedy to comedy, sublime to ridiculous, cats, and car parts.

We made our debut public appearance at Wirksworth festival in 2011, and are now singing at venues & festivals all over the UK.

tribe4mian - The WattingersTHE WATTINGERS

Slaughterhouse Steampunk Blues

With influences from:
Nick Cave
Tom Waits
Gallon Drunk
Butthole Surfers
Jaw Hawkins
Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers
The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre
and general inbred backwoodsman dysfunctionalism

Facebook | Sound Awesome

tribe4mian - GladstoneGLADSTONE

– Gordon “Spook” Stoker. Collector of Macabre stories and artifacts, undertaker to the restless dead.Singer of songs and teller of tales.

tribe4mian - BB BlackDog _Adamx_GoldingBB BLACKDOG

The Darker Side of Steampunk Rock, Comedy Mini Kit set, as well as Main Stage Appearance.

A mix of German and English members with nearly 500 gigs, 5 albums worth of original songs, showcases in Hamburg, Berlin, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Denver, London, Birmingham, and tours across two continents.

BB BlackDog have become a live Band not to miss.

Using no overdubs, playing simple catchy music, remaining fiercely independent, and powered by a rapidly growing, loyal band of supporters, BB BlackDog are different, and that’s a good thing!

Official Website | YouTube | Facebook


Classic Origional Accoustic rock n roll blues, Comedy punk rock which is comically obscene, like putting Roy chubby Brown with The Mac Lads! But it’s all in good humor and just a laugh really.

No subject matter is safe from the recent Spate of High profile related convictions to Obama and His Lama.

Not for the easily offended, you have been warned.



Powerful synth rhythms combine with the dark and gloomy sound of the hurdy-gurdy, the sweet crystal clear tone of the bandura and unusual vocals (in Ukrainian, Russian and English) that are sometimes sung, sometimes spoken, and other times chanted. Honest, inspired and experimental to the core, Dark Patrick’s songs explore themes of anti-fascism, feminism, anarchism, social injustice, exploitation, harsh realities & mental phenomena.

The duet was formed in Kiev in 2008, since then they have produced 5 albums, performed on big and small stages in U.K, Ukraine and Russia and have carefully honed their own unique style that is hard to compare with anything else at all.


A Steampunk collective of The Rake: Drustan Durman, The Dishonourable Reverend JD and The Rose: Madam Mel. They come with accompaniment from multi instrumentalists Tina Bennet and The Obligato string Quartet.

‘This Okehampton based outfit described themselves as Neo-Victorian Steampunk and came dressed as the part. A string quartet, amazing vocals and percussion and a hauntingly mesmerising performance where dark cabaret meets theatre.” 
– BOTB 2014.

The Copperfield Ensemble Project’s live show is an imagining of Victorian music played today:  A cross between Chamber Music and Music Hall, this is Classical music to sing along to. Every song and live show is an experimental journey, the experiment continues.


The year is 1887. After decades of research, bringing run over hedgehogs and marmots back to life, an extensive analysis of the human anatomy through Operation’s ‘Cavity Sam’ and numerous studies with Tesla coils – quite a shocking experience – Dr. Therese Airheart has finally succeeded. She has invented and produced a fully functioning dancing automaton, the Juul Victoria 2.0.

Incidentally, the esteemed Dr. has not yet been able to figure out the correct settings for the built-in free will module, so her invention proves to be quite a handful…


Also present will be model Constance Bashford, Captain of Airship The Peregrine and an iconic figure in the European Steampunk scene.


Reading: Steampunk & Fashion
Helene Smits (Alskaer)

Helene Smits is a clothing designer (Alskaer) and photographer who specializes in fashion and making fashion. In her final thesis at the art academy AKV St. Joost, she did a research on nostalgia. The question of why we desire the past is for Helene a way to take a new look on steampunk.

With the reading “Steampunk & Fashion”; will Helene take you on an inspiring journey about the influences of the Victorian age on the steampunk culture and on the contemporary fashion. It is a timetravel of looking forward and backward by the way we dress.
Love to shine,


Beatrice is a Belly Dance teacher and performer from Nottingham, UK, now residing in Kuala Lumpur.

A lifelong performer, she has studied many styles of dance including Ballet, Contemporary/Modern Dance, Classical Indian Dance, Butoh, Oriental Belly Dance, American Tribal Style (ATS), Tribal Fusion Belly Dance as well as other performance skills such as Fire Dance and Stilt Walking.

As a soloist she has performed all over the UK and beyond.

In 2009, Beatrice became Nottingham’s first certified ATS teacher and following that she founded the Nottingham Tribal Belly Dance company, In 2013 she moved to Kuala Lumpur and set up KL Tribal, both of which are sister studios of Fat Chance Belly Dance, (San Francisco, CA).


Steampunk Faery is my fourth act that I’ve put together and because I started to get into steampunk about a year ago, I always had themed acts that were always fantasy or Faery inspired, so my three other acts are the Fire Faery, Art Deco Faery – which I recently showed at 1930’s Berlin Diaries – and then there’s my new act which I’ll tell you about later as I’m still working on it.

Once I’d developed the original idea, I started to think carefully about how I would create this steampunk Faery. I started with a picture board of the ideas and it took quite a long time to get the whole thing arranged.



Throughout the Event, Tea duels will take place using “Street Rules” so whilst actual contact is not allowed, barricking and slating “all in the best possible taste” is allowed.  Registration forms will be available nearer the time of the event, with great prizes and a showcase final.

The Highlight of Saturday Afternoon.

With a team of professional Photographers and a full green screen room. Attendee’s will be able to have the day captured forever, and placed in a variety of Steampunk backgrounds, only limited by imagination.

With Workshops for everything from Leather Work, Tailoring, Dance, Nerf Gun Mods and much more throughout the weekend.

With everything from Croquet to skittles and horseshoes, a wonderful celebration of our old English Pubs and Garden Games.


A few interesting things for the steampunk visitor to the Llanfyllin area.
(Thanks, Andy)
