F.S.K. and Shari Vari at ://aboutblank / Friday, 2.8.2024

Cult Bavarian band F.S.K. will play in the garden at ://aboutblank this month as part of the Ostkreuz based clubs birthday celebration. Besides F.S.K. there will also be a concert by Sophia Kennedy’s electro-pop duo Shari Vari.

f.s.k., formerly known as freiwillige selbstkontrolle, sind seit 1980 in sachen mode & verzweiflung im zickzack-kurs durch musikalische genres unterwegs und dabei jenseits kommerzieller verwertbarkeit und authentizität auf experimenteller spurensuche. ihre eps und alben versammeln ästhetisch-inhaltliche brüche, auseinandersetzungen und dekonstruktionen mit dem, was sich als “deutsche kultur” und “deutsche traditionslinien” konstituiert. f.s.k. sind michaela melián, thomas meinecke, wilfried petzi, justin hoffmann und carl oesterheld. zuletzt erschien das album „akt, eine treppe herabsteigend“ (2012) und die performance-lp „ein haufen scheiss und ein zertrümmertes klavier“ (2017)

FSK (Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle, German meaning “voluntary self control”) is a German band that was formed in Munich in 1980. It became involved in the underground-part of the German New-Wave-Scene of the early 1980s. The band name is a reference to the German motion picture rating organisation Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle der Filmwirtschaft, which uses the same acronym. Their records were released on the legendary Zickzack-Label owned by Punk-guru Alfred Hilsberg.

We do not want to bore you with a press text that is promoting another band whose music is either „off kilter“, „uncategorizeable“ or both up to quadruple both. We’re just offering you the phrases above hoping you’re going to hear the same thing when you listen to the new record of Shari Vari (congratulations – it’s really good!). Which is a duo consisting of Helena Ratka and Sophia Kennedy. Both are visual artists as well and after a joint exhibition about a fictional superstar they decided to make music together. In 2017 Shari Vari released their debut EP “Life Should Be A Holiday” on Richard von der Schulenburg’s imprint It’s.
