Strange Sounds From Beyond has the line-up that makes your jaw hit the floor. Two days in the heart of Amsterdam will bring exclusive experiences. It's a rare occasion that you can find Identified Patient, IF, Alessandro Adriani, Mata Hari, Nurse With Wound, Les Filles De Illighadad, African Acid Is The Future and many more on the same bill.
One of my favourites are certainly Steve Stapleton's Nurse With Wound. The experimental outfit is kicking for 30 years now. Titled as the weirdest band in the world, Nurse With Wound have already released over 50 full-length albums and they never play two identical shows.
It was Vilnius Punk-Hardcore scene that introduced me to extreme music and radical politics. As a teen activist I found shelter in various underground venues throughout Lithuania and the rest of Europe. Together with my grrrlfriends, we hosted a radio show 'Atviras Galas' dedicated to non-commercial music and feminist agenda, we set up gigs and naively hoped for significant socio-political changes. Years went by. I moved to the UK. Revolution did not happen. My taste in music became darker, grittier and more bizarre. Post-metal, sludge and doom. Desolation to spare with industrial, experimental, noise, ambient and dark techno.
One grim day I was chatting with a mate about the disappearance of the DIY culture. Mutually grim we mourned. Out of grimness an exciting idea of starting a new platform for extreme music was born. I wanted to give voice to underdogs of the scene, to add a personal, more intimate approach and most importantly to keep it DIY. Mutual Grimness - for extreme music artists and fans, who find catharsis in riffs (and beats) and refuge from the misery of life in music.
