UbiksCube, GoodbyeFairground, KinkyNatalie @ DasBach

27.Mai 2012 20h Das Bach


Edelbrand Records lud and viele kamen um Edelbrand-Bands und eine befreundete Band aus deutschen Landen zu hören

"Ubiks Cube"

ist keineswegs ein Schreibfehler. Der Mathematiker, an den hier erinnert wird, hieß Rubik. Vielleicht benötigt die Band das "R" für RRock, denn das ist die dargebotene Stilrichtung. Indie, Rock, Powerpop, was solls. Von allem etwas.

Die Band eröffnet den Abend etwas verunglückt mit Solo-Drums. Das muss exakt kommen, nicht schlapfig. Der Drummer war wohl noch nicht so recht warm gespielt. Es blieb bei dieser Panne.

"Ubiks Cube" liefern gut gespielten Indierock, wobei besonders der Sologitarrist durch Musikalität und Virtuosität überzeugt. Der Sound der Band ist kompakt, die Songs klar strukturiert, rockig und melodiös, der Gesang manchmal zweistimmig. Vor der Bühne unter den Augen des Sängers mit dem Kurzhaar-Irokesen-Streifen war Platz zum Tanzen. Und der wurde genutzt. Na, bei dieser Musik kein Wunder.


"Goodbye Fairground"

aus Deutschland sind zum zweiten Mal in Wien und bringen Deutschpunk wie man sich Deutschpunk vorstellt (Das erste Mal war am 19.September 2011 im Shelter).

Wie auch schon beim ersten Gig im Shelter in Wien nehmen der Sänger und der schlacksige 2-Meter-Bassist die Fläche vor der Bühne in Beschlag und ziehen ihre Show unter Einbeziehung des Publikums ab. Rumtoben und Spaß sind wohl die wichtigsten Elemente der Performance, Lautstärke und Verzerrung die musikalischen Eckpunkte. Dass sich der Bassist seiner Schuhe und Socken entledigt ist ja noch hinzunehmen, dass er die Socken dem Sänger ins T-Shirt stopft war nur für die Zuseher lustig. Das nennt man ACTION [Äktschn]. Diese Band braucht viel Platz; sagen wir besser, eine große Bühne.

Immer wieder faszinierend die Drummerin. Wie kann ein so zartes Wesen so brutal zuschlagen? Von wegen schwaches Geschlecht.








"Kinky Natalie"

aus heimischen Landen bieten instrumentalen Jazz bzw. Jazzrock. Nun ist es mein Problem, dass ich keinen Zugang zu Jazz habe, Jazz ist für mich Kopfwehmusik.

Es wäre aber verdammt unfair, nun auf Grund dieser persönlichen Einstellung die Band beiseite zu schieben. Daher meine Beobachtung: perfekt gespielte Einsätze mit locker gespielten Soli, die selbst dem unbedarften Hörer, also solche Jazz-Vollkoffer wie mir, Können offenbaren. Das muß man neidlos anerkennen. Naja, irgendwie bin ich schon neidisch, wenn ich dem Sologitarrist zusehe und -höre.
