Für mehr Diversität in Hamburger Clubs

Die Hamburger Clubs bieten ein vielfältiges und weltoffenes Programm, dennoch ist offensichtlich, dass bestimmte Dinge unterrepräsentiert sind: Die Präsenz von weiblichen Musikerinnen ist nach wie vor deutlich geringer als die ihrer männlichen Kollegen und auch die Herkunftsländer der Bands befinden sich hauptsächlich in Mitteleuropa und den USA.
Bestimmte Hörgewohnheiten haben sich bereits etabliert und dadurch, dass auch Musikclubs wirtschaftlich handeln müssen, bleibt nur wenig Platz für Neues und Experimentelles.
Mit unserer geplanten Konzertreihe "Kontrapunkt" möchten wir genau hier ansetzen und gezielt die Bands und MusikerInnen nach Hamburg holen, die einen hohen musikalischen Anspruch haben, bisher aber nicht die verdiente Aufmerksamkeit erfahren haben.
Um hierbei die Hemmschwelle möglichst gering zu halten, sich auf neue oder auch unkonventionelle Musik einzulassen, möchten wir die Eintrittspreise so gering wie möglich halten, so dass gleichzeitig auch vielen unterschiedlichen Menschen die Teilhabe ermöglicht wird.
Für diese Konzertreihe erhalten wir einen finanzielle Unterstützung aus dem Musikstadtfonds der Hamburger Behörde für Kultur und Medien

Big Joanie (Black Feminist Punk, UK)

Big Joanie are a black feminist punk band. They’re like The Ronettes filtered through 80s DIY
and 90s riot grrrl, with a sprinkling of dashikis.
Based in London, UK, Big Joanie formed in the summer of 2013 to play at​ ​ First Timers​ (a gig
where each band plays their set for the very first time) at the close of the year. The band also
functioned as a space where its members (Stephanie Phillips, Chardine Taylor-Stone and
Estella Adeyeri) could be completely themselves as black women, and within it discover their
own power in creativity.
In 2014 Big Joanie’s ​ Sistah Punk ​ EP was released on Tuff Enuff Records, and in 2016 they
self-released their haunting single 'Crooked Room'. Establishing themselves amongst London's
thriving DIY punk scene they have since toured the UK and Europe supporting acts such as
Downtown Boys, Shopping, Parquet Courts and more.
One evening in June 2018 Big Joanie were discovered by Thurston Moore, Eva Prinz and Abby
Banks whilst supporting seminal Dutch punk band The Ex. Numbers were exchanged, a coffee
date was set - and by the next morning the trio had confirmed they would release the band’s
debut album ​ Sistahs ​ , and that they’d be launching a new label imprint called ‘​ The Daydream
Library Series​ ’ in order to do so.
Big Joanie recorded ​ Sistahs ​ over several sessions from November 2017 to January 2018 at
Hermitage Works Studios​ with producer Margo Broom (who has also worked with Fat White
Family, Goat Girl and Meatraffle). It’s a bold record about friendships, melancholy memories,
and hope for the future. It was released on the 30th November 2018 to wide acclaim from
Rolling Stone​ , ​ Pitchfork​ , ​ The Quietus​ and more, along with copious airplay on BBC Radio 6
Music and KEXP-FM.
Outside of the band all three members have strong community ties, from helping run the festival
for punks of colour​ ​ Decolonise Fest​ , coaching new talent at​ ​ Girls Rock London​ , or launching the
'​ Stop Rainbow Racism​ ' campaign which works to stop racist performances in LGBT venues.
Black feminism is at the heart of Big Joanie's music and actions, and with the release of ​ Sistahs
the band hope to spread their message even further.

Umut Adan (Psych Rock, Türkei)

Umut Adan is a Turkish musician born and bred in Istanbul.
Since he was a kid, he was exposed to a variety of cultural influences and soon came
under the spell of folk music, with a particular interest for 70’s Anadolu Pop – the folk
- rock movement that became the soundtrack of a historic period full of amazing transitions and dramatic changes.
After relocating to Italy, Umut began working on his own songs, releasing a couple of
45’s produced by Marco Fasolo (mastermind of psych-pop mavericks Jennifer Gentle,
the first Italian band signed by Sub Pop). The singles had limited release but anyway
were able to get excellent reviews from critics like Byron Coley (The Wire)
Soon after that Umut returned to Turkey, kept playing live and finally got picked up by
Jack White as the opening act for his Turkish tour.
Comforted by the warm reception, Umut then started planning his first full release.
The eponymous album was recorded in London at Toe Rag Studios and the sessions were
helmed by Marco Fasolo and Liam Watson (who has worked with a list of notable clients
going from the Kills to the White Stripes).
The final result is an album of folk-inflected songs, but with lots of fuzz guitars and funky
breaks in the best 70’s Turkish psych tradition and also peppered here and there by
weirder arrangement touches like inventive percussion or the mellotron that spices up a
song like “Güneş”.
