D/B Recommended: TV Buddhas @ Monarch Berlin | Sunday, 15.04.2012

TV BUDDHAS, the garage band from Tel Aviv, will perform in celebration of the release of their new EP “Band In The Modern World”, which was produced by Steve Fisk (Beat Happening, Nirvana) and recorded in just less than an hour.

The TV BUDDHAS, currently based in Germany, but originally from Tel Aviv, have been playing their own blend of alienation drenched garage-punk for the past five years, first as a duo and later as a trio.

Their music is reminiscent of The Wipers and Dead Moon, with a heavier, stoner guitar sound, and minimalistic drumming played on a stripped down kit.

Since leaving Israel in 2007 they have released numerous tour CDRs and cassettes, 2 LPs, an EP and a 7 inch record on both the Austrian label Trost and the German label Staatsakt, all in the midst of intensive touring, sometimes playing over 200 shows a year.

The band’s old school modus operandi is their signature: Their records are all self produced one take economic recordings, their massive tours all self booked and managed, they work only within a circle of friends and sustain themselves mainly from the work of the band. Subsequently, they have become known as one of the most sincere and hardworking underground acts to come out of Europe.
