Another show organised by one half of the Vrooom crew. Attack Of The Mad Axeman might look like an unassuming bunch (a bee, turtle, snail, owl and squirrel) but they sound like a rabid pack of baboons bred on a diet of Bolt Throwers and Terrorizers. Add to that the local and not-so-local heroes and DJ Urine (Vrooom #16, 2014) and you've a great line up if you'r into fast and grinding music.
🚑 ATTACK OF THE MAD AXEMAN (hamburg)
No, this isn't a Michael Schenker tribute but super tight bulldozergrind from Hamburg. AOTMA might sound like a rabid pack of baboons bred on a diet of (old) Bolt Thrower and Terrorizer, but they appear in the unassuming shape of a bee, turtle, snail, owl and a squirrel. Don't make no mistake about it, these forest critters are just as fierce and competent as any top-tier grind combo out there, fully equipped to silence any sceptic.
🚑 GEWOON FUCKING RAGGEN (roffa)
On the back of recent tours that brought them to Austria, Czech Republc, Bulgaria, and Hungary – and a high profile show in 2016 at Obscene Extreme – Rotterdam’s premier powerviolence / punk / hc youth rebellion return to WORM to pummel their way through your earholes.
🚑 THROWING BRICKS (nl)
Promising new band from the Gouda / Utrecht area. Named after Ceremony’s most aggressive track, Throwing Bricks saw the light of day in December 2011. Listening to their quality release "Self-Distancing" from 2016, it becomes clear that these guys mean business. Not a one-trick pony, they nicely mix up Hardcore and late 90s screamo with Sludge elements and even some shoegaze. The band references Amenra, Slowdive, Converge, Discordance Axis, Ceremony, and Jesu.
🚑 DJ URINE (fr)
Parisian sound artist who creates sound collages from fragments of vinyl records. Like assembling a mosaic (or maybe even cutting up a pizza), these sound fragments are assembled in various methods, then played on customised turntables, to build up rhythms, loops and textures out of different genres. Sped-up Bollywood vocals can be heard over corrupted bars of Spazz or spoken word pieces, resulting in an imaginative chaotic barrage of sounds.
This event is brought to you by Sandwich-Island, w/ support from Bruja Kru.

At this Vrooom: Max MSP'ed and brutal electroacoustic improvisation from Oz by Fox and Baxter, a mini electro opera on reclaiming your world and making a difference by Ergo Phizmiz, and Powerhouse saxophone player Johns Lunds (also known for the yoyooyoy and Mayhem collectives in DK) who will perform with sound artist and former Café OTO programmer John Chantler.
ROBIN FOX & SEAN BAXTER (au)
This duo performs intensely fractured and brutal electroacoustic improvisation. Embracing the traditions of abstract free improv and musique concrete, they create dynamic and spontaneous musical conversations utilising analogue and digital electronics, extended instrumental technique and real-time processing. Fox utilises MAX/MSP patches that he has written specifically to rapidly capture, mediate and regenerate sound sources whilst Baxter approaches the drum kit with various elements of percussive junk to generate unconventional sounds. Together, the duo incorporate the use of real-time processing to build insanely fragmented layers of noise which, whilst completely freely improvised, attain a level of precision and discipline which evoke the most meticulously crafted compositions. Both Fox and Baxter have been at the forefront of the Australian sonic avant garde for two decades, and have been collaborating in various guises for over 15 years.

JOHNS LUNDS / JOHN CHANTLER (dk/au)
A duo for saxophone and synthesizer. Johns and John lock into a series of cycles and frequency systems that, while loosely in the tradition of the patterned saxophony and accompanying string drone of La Monte Young and the "Theatre of Eternal Dream Music’s B Flat Dorian Blues", obliterates the instrumental hierarchy that Young adopted, for an altogether more unknowable intensity of experience.
