Review: Gran “Chair” lp Release party @ Rhiz

Florian Tremmel aka. Gran, member of Dot Dash and part of the Totally Wired Records collective lately presented his new Album “Chair”. His eclectic mix of several post-punk and new wave styles made it a worthwhile evening at rhiz. Pieces like “The Rise and Fall Of The Crazy Guy” are fashioned in the tradition of minimal wave – yet sound quite maximal at times with over the top guitar and synth noise chaos. “KDT” on the other hand, was quite funky and led me to rather interesting associations up to “a queer-punk version of Carlos Santana”. The show ended with the track “Lipstick” from his previous release “No Love”.
