FANNY

Profile:

Winnipeg producer and Scottish expatriate Fanny began his musical career twenty years ago in the deconstructed rubble of the British punk rock explosion. Playing guitar for countless Edinburough bands fusing everything from the banshees to def jam, stravinsky to pfunk, fanny’s exploits brought him to the attention of local punk rock legends The Exploited, whom he joined in 1993. Frasier toured Europe and south America as the guitar player of the exploited and is featured as “the human bone” on the Live In Buenos Ares concert tape. He also co-wrote and recorded the “Beat the Bastards” lp but subsequently quit the band before the album could be released. Wattie replaced him in the credits with his unborn baby son. That’s punk for ya! Frasier left Scotland to join Canadian funk rock icons Bootsauce and moved to Montreal shortly after. Despite their numerous gold records, incessant touring and a hardcore loyal following, Bootsauce was a star struck band, doomed by an inept record label. When they folded, Frasier found himself in Winnipeg, of all places, with a new musical ambition and vision. Having tired of guitars and rock clichés, fanny returned to his sampler experiments that he first began in the eighties. Trading in his guitars for synths and a PC, Frasier was freed at last to fully explore his musical ideas. The result was “Come and get it up yer,” a limited release cd of Fanny’s raucous booty house. not long after, Frasier met Aaron funk, aka Venetian Snares, and the affect of his music was enormous. Frasier found a new playground and began pushing his material in bold and often ridiculous directions. Weekend trips to Wisconsin and the legendary barn parties in east troy further seeded his ambitions. It was there that he caught the attention of Zod record boss Destro and Widerstand kingpin Eiterherd from Austria and plans were quickly made to release his new tracks. Collaborating with his small black dog puff, squealing under his chair, Frasier went on an intense writing binge in an effort to develop a new and original music. Important to him also, is having something to say with his music, be it an emotional impression or a concrete idea. As a result, his music stands out in the anonymous electronic world for his personality, wit and humor.

Profile:

It’s time to tell my „widerstand“ story, happend in times before twitter, e-mail, facebook and all that shit. I started with electronic music in 1994, mainly influenced by techno, punk and gabber. But everything turned out as noisy, wired crap, but it was a lot of fun. Then seeing Patric Catani (Ec8or) destroying an Amiga500, while supporting an Atari Teenage Riot Show in 1995, made me selfconfident enough to release the first stuff on tapes and also the noise of close friends and naming the whole badroom tape conspiracy „Trash Tapes“. In 1996 I played the first shows and started to spin records, I think the first ever gig was in a city called Bernburg in dark and dirty East-Germany. Also in 1996, I got my greedy hands on „Widerstand Records 001“ – got it from Soundbase Music in Leipzig. I remember sitting at my parents house listening to that record and think: „Was zum Teufel ist das???“ (Whats the hell is this). This record was noisy, bad produced, digital distorted, nonconstant and full of hate for human society. This record sounded exactly like inside my head – couldn’t stand it, but also couldn’t change it (the head) and I thought, those people must be badass motherfuckers (haha austrians). So I stalked the labels activities! In 1997 I felt like, wanna making a record, but had no clue how and I thought, the word „Widerstand“ is in the center of my work, so I want it also on my potential vinyl centerlabel and „Widerstand Records“ was the place reflecting this the best. So I really wrote a letter and recorded a tape demo (had no cd-r burner in 1997) and send it to Graz. Some weeks later I was really happy reading Dan’s answer. We talked and managed a first gig in Austria in 1998, (bty the way, I was accompanied by DJ Inapt (later Rest Room Records) who was going to school with me back in that time.). After this, everything developed quite fast and in late 1998 Dan send me the test pressing of “Wer Sich Wehrt Ist Lebendig” I loved it very much, but was not happy with the mastering, that was my own fault, today we would call it a very dynamic production hahaha. In 1999 we made a follow up release under my moniker „Worlds Ab-Art“ on Silent Revolution Records, the 7inch offshot of Widerstand Records and this one is still in my record case when I’m spinnig records from time to time. So, thankz Dan for everything!!! Also for my very first, still in use e-mail adress (alexdee at widerstand dot org), in times (1999) when I even had no internet connection myself.

THE BERZERKER

Aliases:

DJ Devious, Kenny Gee, Luke Kenny

Profile:

“The Berzerker is about musically fulfilling the statement ‘he who makes a beast of himself, is free from the pain of being a man’ The Berzerker is the most natural form of extremity known on this planet.”

The Berzerker is an Industrial Death Metal artist from Melbourne, Australia. Specializing in Speed, Intensity and aggression. The wall of noise produced by the band encompasses very untraditional drums sound supplied in the form of distorted 909 kick drums, and industrial sound scapes with general destructive elements used to enhance sonic assault. With twin vocal attacks and machine gun vocals rhythms the band stop at nothing to express their hatred on humanity.

The Berzerker was created as a solo studio project in 1995 and went on to release various EP’s on labels such as Industrial Strength (USA), Speedcore (GERMANY)and Widerstand (AUSTRIA). 1998 saw the initial contact with Earache Records (UK) with the re-mixes of the Morbid Angel tracks Day of Suffering, Abominations and The Ancient Ones.
The Berzerker was offered a contract with Earache Records for a number of full-length albums shortly afterwards, and in 2000 the Self-Titled album was released and the live act was born.

The bands first film clip for the track “Reality” was banned by the ITC (independent television commission) and MTV due to excessive strobe lighting and horrific images, including the appearance of the band.

In early 2001 the band headed off on a successful 27 show tour of the USA and Canada.

And in 2002/03 the band embarked on a World Tour to support their album Dissimulate this saw over 100 shows played across Australia, USA, Canada, UK, Germany, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, and many more. They did full month long tours with bands such as toured with such bands as Nile, Napalm Death, Strapping Young Lad, Vader, Immolation and many more…
