ARGIES + LIBERTY & JUSTICE, Support: EUPHORIE
Rock inside the Glock # 103
Since their formation in 1984, #Argies have stood out due to their libertarian poetry, the power of their music and the understanding and coherence of their political attitude. Even though their roots can be found in the British Punk from the seventies, nowadays their music witnesses influences from #ska, #reggae, #dub and good part of #rocknroll elements and #Latinrhythms. Practicing a philosophy of “do it yourself” they have made a successful career while maintaining independence. The name “Argies” derives from the English pejorative term for “Argentinean” which was most popularly used by the British yellow press during the Falkland War in 1982. Far from being nationalists, their name connects the band, the members of which define themselves as internationalists, with debased minorities and marginalized people worldwide. By the mid nineties, Argies left their hometown Rosario and moved to Buenos Aires. Since then, playing more than 35 shows annually, they came to be known as one of the most frequently performing acts in town. Starting in 1999, the band has regularly played extended tours in South America and Europe. The Band functions like a collective of committed musicians all of which form part of the project for undetermined periods, entering and leaving Argies with the same liberty that also characterizes the work in the band and the way in which its members study and teach in joint efforts across their differences. Over the years, the band’s particular method of making music has made Argies a truly independent cultural movement. They often shared the Stage with #DieTotenHosen!
LIBERTY & JUSTICE
LIBERTY AND JUSTICE were formed in 2015 and their lates full length album “Pressure” (Contra Records) hit the scene lika a bomb and sold like hot cakes! While taking traditional cues from the likes of The Templars and 4Skins, L&J aren’t content to make by-the-numbers Oi. Instead giving nods to the channeled HC ferocity of #SheerTerror, the sing-along sincerity of #TheTrouble, the hard-scrabble outsider rock sensibilities of #TheBruisers, and fight-ready mentality of Houston originalists Tread. Blending it all seamlessly into something authentically their own, L&J unapologetically force their own voice through to the fore and out on to the streets.
Streetpunk mit klarer Haltung, wenig Schnickschnack und viel Mitgröl-Charakter. 2009 in München gegründet und 2017 mit der “Euphorie im Blut EP” wiederbelebt. Zur Zeit mit dem Debüt Album “Mittelfinger” unterwegs.
