  • 06/12/2023Intertune Records veranstalte mit dem "The 1st Great Collision" Festival am 3.2.2024 ein Label-FestivalBuco, The Ruby Sea und The Moonband. Sizilien, das Meer und der Mond. Drei Bands, die einander mit unterschiedlichstem Sound seit Jahren beeinflussen. Willkommen zu einem abwechslungsreichen Abend in der Kranhalle mit Münchens subkulturellen Klängen aus Italo-Punk, Indie-Rock und Folk-Pop. Das Mini-Festival ist das erste aus einer geplanten Reihe Konzerte, in denen das Münchner Label Intertune Records sowohl Künstler aus dem eigenen Haus als auch solche, für die man sich begeistert, präsentieren möchte.

    Buco ist die neu gegründete Band des Cantante D. Santoni. Sein wilder Haufen sorgt seit einer Weile für eine Neudefinition des Begriffs „Italo“. Von schmutzigen Beats verführt, in sanfte Melodien verwickelt – neuerdings lässt man sich auf Sizilianisch anschwindeln. Buco auf Soundcloud:

    Schwarz bebt das Meer, dahinter schimmert der Horizont – The Ruby Sea spielt. Seit nun 30 Jahren sind Songwriter Erwin Zißelsberger und Schlagzeugerin Karin Reuther das kreative Zentrum eines Indie-Universums. Dunkelrot groovt die Nacht – und wir hören neues Song-Material: Des Teufels Psychologe hat einen Deal mit dieser Band geschlossen!

    The Ruby Sea auf YouTube: Foto: Jakob Zißelsberger Nach einer kleinen Schaffenspause arbeiten die Münchner Astronauten von The Moonband weiter an Songs für den blauen Planeten. Laut einem Insider-Tip wird es auf der 1st Great Collision auch das ein oder andere Stück des neuesten Materials zu hören geben. Die Planeten ziehen an uns vorbei, während sich ein Weltraum-Synthesizer zu einer tänzelnden Mandoline gesellt. The Moonband online:
