Uwe Bastiansen aka “stadtfisch” will present a unique “flex”-lineup. Again and again he succeeds to bring the most unrelated music styles and the most different musicians together, live on stage. The permanentely changing formation speaks a clear language – machines meet guitars meet taikodrums, transverse flute meets marching lyre meets double bass, chainsaw meets triangle meets wind instruments etc.
There are extensive evidences in the internet and on several sound carriers. Every viewer who thought, (s)he would know what will happen, was repeatedly proven wrong. This time stadtfischflex will feature: Uwe Bastiansen (ex-Abwärts), N.U. Unruh (Einstürzende Neubauten), Zappi Diermaier (Faust), Hoshiko Yamane (Tangerine Dream), Luca Andrioli (Ulan Bator), Kim Kiesling, Kakawaka.

“Psykisk Tortur” was founded in 1984 in Bodø, Norway by Lars “Skjit-Lars” Nicolaysen and Tore “NXP” Nilsen (later Stemland). Their improvised music was oriented around metal percussion, concrete mixer and drills : they got expelled from every venue in the area because of their music and their performances ! It would take more than 20 years before they re-entered the stage again at the Nødutgang Festivalen in Bodø 2006, but with Ronny Wærnes and later Lars and Ronny continued as a duo, and their sound, still based around metal percussion, have expanded with drums and electronic noise, amongst other things.
„A grotesque form of heavy metal rock, where mad electronic gibberish takes the place of squealing guitar solos, and the drumming is every bit as intense as a thousand Slayer tribute bands” – Ed Pinsent / The Sound Projector.
