Book release “EVERYTHING ELSE IS EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS – Datacide Magazine 1-10 in one Volume”

Talk by editor Christoph Fringeli about counter-cultural and underground publishing, the history of Datacide and new projects.

Slovakian announcement text:

Začiatok 90tych rokov je obdobie, kedy sa časť rozmáhajúcej sa elektronickej hudobnej scény vzďaľuje od mainstreamu a miesto populárnych klubov si svoje miesto hľadá v opustených skladoch, squatoch, verejných priestranstvách a vďaka pirátskym vysielačom aj v éteri veľkomiest. Toto vymknutie sa spod kontroly má za následok zvýšený záujem polície a v UK ústi až do prípravy zákona Criminal Justice Act, ktorý je namierený hlavne proti ilegálnym parties a teknivalom organizovaných potulnými soundsystémami.
V tejto atmosfére v roku 1994 vychádza nulté číslo časopisu (vtedy ešte pod názvom Alien Underground) s podtitulom Techno Theory for Juvenile Deliquents (teória techna pre mladistvých delikventov). Okrem recenzii nahrávok (hlavne techno, industrial a core všetkých druhov), DJ chartov a rozhovorov s hudobníkmi obsahuje články ako Bojuj proti Criminal Justice Bill alebo Nič podstatné sa neudeje pokiaľ pri tom nie je hluk (akýsi antikomerčný techno manifest), čím vyjadruje ambíciu stať sa niečím viac, než len hudobným fanzinom.
Neskôr sa časopis premenováva na DATACIDE a nepravideľne vychádza až do dnes pokrývajúc široké spektrum tém.
Štrnáste špeciálne štvrtkové vydanie párty Vermin je venované tomuto magazínu a to práve pri príležitosti knižného vydania prvých desiatich čísel pod názvom Everything Else Is Even More Ridiculous.
Knihu, časopis ale aj iné svoje projekty a aktivity (ako napríklad renomovaný label Praxis s viac ako 50 vydanými platňami na konte), príde osobne predstaviť človek v pozadí, sám Christoph Fringeli.
Jeho hudobné alterego BASE FORCE ONE bude zároveň headlinerom tohoto vydania Verminu. Očakávame, že vo svojom sete predstaví experimentálnejší ale úderný breakcore typický pre Praxis releasy. V podobnom štýle mu bude sekundovať DJka LYNX z amerického Portlandu.
Domácu stranu zastúpia: živým technotrashom URBANFAILURE z Urbsounds, DSKG noisovou power elektronikou a BASSTOM z Gabba team Pressburg Hard&Break core DJ setom.

DATACIDE BOOKS FOR 2015

We’re very happy to announce the release of two books this month:

 

datacide book cover

EVERYTHING ELSE IS EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS
a decade of noise & politics – datacide issues 1-10

A major project in the works for quite some time, this is a complete reprint of the issues 1-10 of datacide, which originally appeared from 1997-2008. Titled “EVERYTHING ELSE IS EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS”, the 364 page volume collects unique material, most of which has been out of print for many years, charting a one-of-a-kind history of the counter-cultures associated with electronic music and free festivals.
“The free space of the party met the free space of the page and then you got a dynamism that encouraged expression and perversions and tangents because the covers held it together as a nomadic movement and you were convinced that music had catalysed it all and that music was somehow inherently political as it sidestepped rhetoric and dogma, and absented us from control addicts and the free space of the page was a kind of historic party, a kind of invisible college, a launching pad for driftage.” Flint Michigan

Wholesale price: EUR 14,00
Subscribers: EUR 15,00
Retail price: EUR 20,00

almanac 2015

Almanac for Noise & Politics 2015

If you’re already familiar with datacide magazine and our related record label for extreme electronic music – Praxis – then you’re familiar with the efforts we’ve made over the last two decades to continually explore the intersections of radical politics and underground rave culture, experimental and extreme electronic music, moments of free spaces and momentary freak-outs and how these can be represented on the page and through the speakers. If not, this may be a good place to start.  Either way, the Almanac for noise & politics 2015 contains a selection of articles and excerpts from various issues of datacide, as well as a peek into the activities of the Praxis label and its offshoots. This first edition is meant to be a brief introduction to the wide range of topics covered in datacide.
Articles include: Post-Media Operators by Howard Slater/Eddie Miller/Flint Michigan, No Stars here (track -1) by TechNET, A Loop Da Loop Era – Towards an (Anti-)history of Rave by Neil Transpontine, Radical Intersections by Christoph Fringeli, Vinyl Meltdown by Alexis Wolton, Plague in this Town by Matthew Hyland, Just Say Non – Nazism, Narcissism and Boyd Rice by whomakesthenazis.com, Interview with Christoph Fringeli/Praxis Records from Objection to Procedure, a new short story by Dan Hekate, as well as a commented catalogue. This is interspersed by new visual work by Matthieu Bourel, Lynx, Sansculotte, Tóng Zhi, and Zombieflesheater!
Full colour cover and 104 inside pages in A6 format!

Distribution price (10+ copies): EUR 3,00
Wholesale price: EUR 4,00
Retail price: Eur 5,00 (retail copies include a 5-Euro voucher for the praxis online shop)

Datacide 13 Introduction

Introduction to the new print edition of Datacide – now available for EUR 5.00 including postage to anywhere in the world. Please send via paypal to datacide (at) c8.com, or order via the Praxis online store. Subscriptions cost EUR 12.00 for 3 issues. Still available are issues 10-12. These can be included in a subscription. A re-print of issue 9 will be published in November, and other print projects are in the works (see more details below).

In the next week or so we will publish audio and video from the two Datacide 13 launch events in Berlin and London. After that we’ll gradually make the content of Datacide 13 available on this site.

This issue of Datacide is released on 12 October 2013, one year after the publication of Datacide 12. Our new strategy is to publish Datacide yearly. That gives the editors and writers time to focus on new publication projects directly connected to the critiques and interventionist counter-cultural strategies articulated in Datacide.
