THESE GREAT RELEASES/MIXES/TRACKS ARE IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER, ALL ARTISTS/LABELS ARE EQUALLY BIG RESPECTED BY ME:
NOT 2022 , BUT HAS ALWAYS A PLACE IN MY <3
To me (and apart from closing on me as the fucking worst of the worst years of death des Todes in terms of live performing, thank you very much 2022), 2022 mostly meant bouncing around as an obliviously enthusiastic audience at live shows; it was a year of getting past my covid scare (still didn’t have it!) and turning into one sweaty, pulsating bundle with everybody else who’d squeeze themselves into DIY run shoebox venues filled to capacity (and then some). All my 2022 albums (two of which were released in 2021) play out as summer shows:
June 20, 2022, 1bm Wien. It’s a 100 degrees (Celsius) out. Spirito’s Inner Peace Punk brings Einbaumöbel to a freaking boil. Everything inside of me liquifies and spills to the floor. i’m happy.
June 26, 2022, Skulpturenpark Graz. Puke Puddle have just finished playing a so-so outdoor show, my bandmate Tina Bauer and i are unenthusiastically collecting our stuff and complain that we want to go to sleep right away but can’t, when Tony starts their set. As if by magic (Tony’s magic!), our energies are immediately restored. We jump up and down as we yell along the hooks.
July 22, 2022, 1bm Wien. There are No Parties like Urban Lurk Parties. Party Party Party. Party like it’s 2022, the summer of, and you don’t fear the reaper.
July 30, 2022, Tankstelle Simmering. i showed up first out of concern that it would be too full. Turns out a lot of people had similar thoughts but/and decided to not go at all, which means that i and a handful of other very lucky fans got to have Low Life very much to ourselves. Hah.
September 2, 2022, Kapu Linz. Real swords on stage, don’t ever tell the Theater Police.
