Prior to the release of their album “Baustelle” (trans. Construction Site) on monika in June, Gudrun Gut and AGF perform the German premier of songs from the record at Maria, part of the Wie Es Ihr Gefällt festival.
[audio:GreieGutStadtExcp.mp3] Also playing on the night and highly recommended is London based artist Mieko Shimizo aka Mico.AGF (aka Antye Greie) established herself in Berlin with her atmospheric electronica, and is in demand for sound-installations as well as live gigs. She’s now based in Finland, and this was the first time she and Gudrun had recorded together. The Baustelle project came about following a request from the BBC to do a live session.
Gudrun Gut is a veteran of the Berlin underground scene from post-punk to Techno. She sang in an early version of Einstürzende Neubauten, the highly influential industrial/noise band of the 1980s, and since then she’s formed her own groups and is active as a DJ with oceanclub and running a label, monika enterprise.
