In the early 80s’s Einstürzende Neubaute ripped through Berlin Germany, creating original sounds recorded with homemade musical equipment. While the music is decidedly artier than most punk, the band shared the genre’s disdain of convention and its pervading nihilism. They formed within a movement (Die Geniale Dilletanten) that aimed to destroy all conventions in music. What followed was an exploration of the full avant-garde gamut (noise, free-jazz, krautrock, industrial, et al). The band never abandoned this no-holds-barred attitude. This year they reach their thirty-year anniversary.

The occasion will be marked by touring select cities in North America. Each city gets a double-dose of the band. On the first show, they will play a traditional performance. On the second night, “An Evening With Einstürzende Neubauten,” Einstürzende Neubaute mixes media and artists; collating film and audio. Solo members and friends of the band will perform on the second night. As an added bonus, the band will perform rare material on the second night in a short performance.

Einstürzende Neubauten release Strategies Against Architecture IV on 11/9 on Mute Records. In their fourth installment they catalogue their output from 2002-2010. This compilation will be a double album which showcases the bands live recordings at the former seat of power of the German Democratic Republik. This performance, rife with symbolism, played to fans of the band will be a highlight. Strategies Against Architecture IV features formerly hard-to-get tracks for fans and consolidates them into a cohesive package. It is an exciting time to be a fan of a band with a body of work that was consistently incongruous with anything short of total artistic freedom.
