On February 6th, 1982 the Kraftwerk single ‘The Model’ reached the Top 1 of the UK Singles Chart!

06th of February 2019, 10:15

On February 6th, 1982 the Kraftwerk single ‘The Model’, originally released in Germany already in 1978 as 7” single ‘Das Model’, reached the Top 1 of the UK Singles Chart.

Even-though the band initially added the English sung version as only a b-side on their new single ‘Computer Love’ in 1981, DJ’s and the radio audience seemed to prefer this b-side instead of the a-side. After Capitol Records/EMI noticed the commercial potential they re-released the single almost immediately, this time ‘The Model’ as A-side. Apparently this was decided by Capitol Records/EMI much against the band’s own will. Nevertheless this smart strategy by EMI resulted in ‘The Model’ becoming the number one in the UK single charts on February 6th, 1982. The single managed to hang in the UK top 75 for a total of 21 weeks.

Unable to deny the succes another 7” was released by the band, and its label Kling Klang / EMI Electrola, bearing both versions ‘The Model’ and ‘Das Model’.

Still, in Germany, Das Model, never climbed higher than 7th position in the German Single charts. After one week it descended again, still remaining about 20 weeks in the charts.

Das Model/ The Model was written by Karl Bartos and Ralf Hütter and with artist Emil Schult collaborating on the lyrics and was the preliminary single for their upcoming and legendary album Die Mensch-Maschine or The Man-Machine.


The Model

She's a model and she's looking good
I'd like to take her home that's understood
She plays hard to get, she smiles from time to time
It only takes a camera to change her mind
She's going out tonight but drinking just champagne
And she has been checking nearly all the men
She's playing her game and you can hear them say
She is looking good, for beauty we will pay
She's posing for consumer products now and then
For every camera she gives the best she can
I saw her on the cover of a magazine
Now, she's a big success, I want to meet her again


Das Model
Sie ist ein Model und sie sieht gut aus
Ich nähm sie heut gerne mit zu mir nach Haus
Sie wirkt so kühl, an sie kommt niemand ran
Doch vor der Kamera da zeigt sie was sie kann

Sie trinkt in Nachtclubs immer Sekt (Korrekt!)
Und hat hier alle Männer abgecheckt`
Im Scheinwerferlicht ihr junges Lächeln strahlt
Sie sieht gut aus und Schönheit wird bezahlt

Sie stellt sich zur Schau für das Konsumprodukt
Und wird von Millionen Augen angeguckt
Ihr neues Titelbild ist einfach fabelhaft
Ich muß sie wieder seh'n, ich weiß sie hat's geschafft

This year Bodybeats starts celebrating the International EBM day one day earlier!

05th of February 2019, 17:15

EN

After the success of their very first edition of International EBM day earlier this year, BodyBeats Productions have decided to repeat this feast in 2019. Although their first edition was very international, with acts like Plastic Noise experience (D), Pankow (IT), they chose this time to have a 100% Swedish line-up by inviting some the best EBM/Electro acts Sweden has to offer these days.

As the title already gives away this is the annual day on which EBM fans from all over the world celebrate their beloved music genre, Electronic Body Music! A dark but pounding music style, maybe not so much invented by Belgium's EBM pride, Front 242, but definitely most finely-tuned and exploited by them. Hence the date on which EBM fans over the whole world celebrate International EBM day, 24th of February or >24.2<
However in 2019, as 24th February is a Sunday and since most of you need to appear tidy and fresh at work on Monday, BodyBeats Productions decided to start celebrating International EBM day early on Saturday 23.02.
So this is the date to mark in your agenda and to come celebrate International EBM day! And as BodyBeats Productions say themselves: Don't expect Kraftwerk, DAF or the aforementioned pioneers but rather a fine selection of their legacy!

So let us introduce to you this year's 100% Swedish line-up in short!:

WULFBAND are from the Swedish capital Stockholm. Founded in 2014 by a masked duo who sing / shout in German and officially call themselves Sieben & Neun. For reasons that are not our affair, the band prefers to work with an anonymous creative image instead of putting their personal identities forward. As far as the music is concerned, it can be argued that it is inspired by the early post-punk DAF and when you feel the urge to comment on their German pronunciation, know well that these gentlemen are quite capable of inflicting serious damage... whether or not auditory... Wulfband describe their music as "Gewalt-Tanz und Angriffe gegen Alles"

ALVAR does not need an introduction to the regular BodyBeats followers, as they performed twice already for them in 2017. The first time they played the Dark Demons night (Antwerp) where they overwhelmed friend and foe, claiming their well deserved opening spot at BIMFEST 2017. At BIMFEST they also caught the crowd's attention with ease. According to some, their music is situated between dark, sometimes lingering, dark electronics and sometimes pounding EBM. Connoisseurs even claim their music to be reminiscent of early releases of the cult label Cold Meat Industy.

FACEBOOK
BANDCAMP

NO SLEEP BY THE MACHINE stands for energetic and pumping live performances, so no wonder they have also played BIMFEST before, in 2013. Their music is rather like an uncompromising complaint against injustice and fight for more freedom in our society. Now, after several years of inactivity, the band is back and is working hard on a new album. In the meantime you can still discover their pretty fantastic previous albums Close, Quadrilateral and Splice on their Bandcamp.

SEVERE ILLUSION was founded in 2000 by Fredrik Djurfeldt and Ulf Lundblad and have released five albums, an EP and more since. It's clear this band is also popular outside their home country, as proven by the impressive list of the band's outbound performances over the years... Germany, Russia, Chile, Hungary, Ukraine, Slovenia, Poland, Czech Republic, UK, Uruguay, Brazil, Canada and Denmark... and now for the second time in Belgium! Their mix of dark harsh electro with EBM influences draws many to the dance floor.

23.2 INTERNATIONAL EBM DAY @ De Casino, St-Niklaas, B (Tickets, media & Info)

Na het succes van de allereerste editie van de Internationale EBM-dag, besloot BodyBeats Productions dit event te herhalenin 2019. Hoewel de eerste editie heel internationaal was, met groepen als Plastic Noise Experience (D), Pankow (T), kozen zij deze keer voor een 100% Zweedse line-up door enkele van de beste EBM/electro acts uit te nodigen die Zweden vandaag de dag rijk is.

Zoals de titel al aangeeft, is dit de dag waarop BodyBeats en vele andere liefhebbers van elektronische muziek één van hun geliefde muziekgenres eren en vieren, Electronic Body Music of kortweg EBM, een eerder donkere maar uiterst dansbare en beukende muziekstijl. Al was onze nationale trots FRONT 242 misschien niet helemaal de uitvinder van EBM, toch is het genre zonder twijfel door hen gefinteuned en hebben ze ervoor gezorgd dat EBM wereldwijd bekend en gesmaakt werd. Vandaar ook de datum waarop fans over de hele wereld 24 februari (24.2) uitgeroepen hebben tot Nationale EBM-dag. Omdat in 2019 24 februari op een zondag valt en iedereen op maandag fris en monter op het werk verwacht wordt, besloor BodyBeats Productions wat vroeger te starten met de festiviteiten, op 23 februari.

Verwacht op dit event geen Kraftwerk, DAF of de eerder genoemde pioniers maar een mooie selectie van hun nakomelingen!

Laat ons de 100% Zweedse line-up van 2019 kort voorstellen:

WULFBAND is afkomstig uit de Zweedse hoofdstad Stockholm en werd opgericht in 2014 door een gemaskerd duo dat in het Duits zingt / schreeuwt en zichzelf officieel Sieben & Neun noemt. Om redenen die onze zaken niet zijn, wil de band liever met een anoniem creatief imago werken eerder dan hun persoonlijke identiteit voorop te stellen. Wat de muziek betreft, kan men stellen dat die is geïnspireerd door de vroege postpunk DAF, en moest u eraan denken commentaar te geven op hun mischien niet altijd perfecte Duitse uitspraak, weet dan goed dat deze heren behoorlijk in staat zijn om ernstige schade aan te richten... Al dan niet auditief... Zelf beschrijven ze hun muziek als "Gewalt-Tanz und Angriffe gegen Alles"

BANDCAMP

ALVAR heeft voor de vaste BodyBeats aanhangers geen introductie meer nodig want deze Zweden traden in 2017 al twee maal voor BodyBeats op. De eerste keer op de preselectie Dark Demons (Antwerpen) waar ze vriend en vijand overdonderden en zo hun wel verdiende plaatsje op BIMFES 2017 opeisten. Ook op BIMFEST wisten zij als opener met gemak de aandacht van het publiek op te eisen. Hun muziek situeert zich volgens sommigen tussen donkere soms slepende donkere elektronica en beukende EBM. Kenners beweren zelfs dat hun muziek aan de vroege releases van het cult label Cold Meat Industrial doet denken.

FACEBOOK
BANDCAMP

NO SLEEP BY THE MACHINE staat garant voor een energieke pompende live-performance en stond om die redenen al in 2013 op BIMFEST. Hun muziek is eerder een compromisloos betoog tegen onrecht en voor meer vrijheid in onze samenleving. Na enkele jaren inactiviteit is de band nu weer terug en wordt er hard gewerkt aan een nieuw album. Ondertussen kan u wel al eens de lichtjes fantastische voorgaande albums Close, Quadrilateral, Splice gaan ontdekken op hun bandcamp.

BANDCAMP

SEVERE ILLUSION werd in 2000 opgericht door Fredrik Djurfeldt en Ulf Lundblad en bracht ondertussen vijf albums, een EP en meer uit. Dat deze band ook graag gezien is buiten hun thuisland Zweden bewijst het palmares van buitenlandse optredens van de band door de jaren heen. Zo stond Severe Illusion al op het podium in Duitsland, Rusland, Chili, Hongarije, Oekraïne, Slovenië, Polen, Tjechië, UK, Uruguay, Brazilië, Canada en Denemarken en nu voor tweede maal in België! Hun mix van donkere electro met EBM invloeden doet menige dansvloeren vollopen.

Plastic Passion | This Day 39-Years Ago-The Cure Release Boys Don’t Cry

05th of February 2019, 10:16

Today, in 1980 The Cure breakthrough with their second release, ‘Boys Don’t Cry’.
It also marked the first release by the band into the American market, this album heralded the arrival of The Cure into the international market.
Amid the albums thirteen-numbers, the collision between the bleak and haunting comes to the surface in the upbeat and beautifully-brilliant title track- 'Boys Don't Cry'. This is pure pop, a departure and surprise installment in the canon of Cure standards. With in infectious guitar lines and Smiths pitiful mourning for the girl that is lost, proving the point there was more to this band than displayed on their debut.


And then there is the tense-paranoia that translates through the albums lead single, ‘Killing An Arab, although predating the album by over a year, the song still has the same impact as it did over forty-years since its release whilst still raising the same controversy in the post-9/11 world.
“Standing on a beach with a gun in my hand/Staring at the sea Staring at the sand Staring down the barrel at the Arab on the ground.'
Indeed, including ‘Jumping Someone Else’s Train’, all three singles seen release before the album did. ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ is a solid Post-Punk album, although at times hard to pigeonhole it into one particular genre it is a raw display of melancholic lyrics, submerged in a mesh of catchy melodies that unwillingly plant themselves inside your brain. In reflection ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ mirrors the feeling within the band towards what they saw as the state of the music culture of the time.
Despite their reputation for cavernous gothic misery, ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ presents a lighter and sprightlier take on the punk sound that avoids the political grandstanding of the earlier, angrier-punk bands.
The dark edge conveyed by the band runs from the ironic title track to the chorus-heavy album closer- ‘Three Imaginary Boys’, a gothic portrait of solitude put to music.
“See the cracked reflection
Standing still
Before the bedroom mirror
Over my shoulder
But no one's there
Whispers in the silence
Pressing close behind me
Pressing close behind
Can you help me?”

Original 1980 Track List:
1. 'Jumping Someone Else's Train' – 2:58
2. 'Boys Don't Cry' – 2:37
3. 'Plastic Passion' – 2:15
4. '10:15 Saturday Night' – 3:40
5. 'Accuracy' – 2:16
6. 'Object' – 3:03
7. 'Subway Song' – 1:54
8. 'Killing an Arab' – 2:22

Evi Vine previews 'My Only Son' single ahead of 'Black Light White Dark' album!

04th of February 2019, 19:16

London's ethereal alt-rock outfitt Evi Vine presents her new single 'My Only Son', a touching track that was inspired by a close friend's suicide. Writing this song helped her work through her pain. The video for this track was shot by Phillip Clemo, Colin Gary & Tim Shepherd, and directed by Phillip Clemo.

This is the second single from her new album 'Black Light White Dark', which releases on 22nd February. This follows up the first single 'Sabbath' featuring The Cure's Simon Gallup on bass and Peter Yates of Fields of the Nephilim on guitar. The accompanying video was created by Craig Murray, known for his extensive work with Mogwai.

Produced by Dave Izumi (Nordic Giants, Ed Harcourt, Magic Numbers) and mixed by Phill Brown (Talk Talk, Jimmy Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, John Martyn, Robert Palmer), this album also features contributions from other celebrated artists, including Martyn Barker (Shriekback, Billy Bragg, Marianne Faithfull, Goldfrapp) and Geraldine Swayne (Faust).

As a group, Evi Vine is joined by Steven Hill, Matt Tye and David 'GB' Smith. Their music explores the dark elemental nature of the human heart, as well as environmental and post-apocalyptic themes. Sublime and haunting, they create a unique and uncompromising atmosphere with gossamer vocals and precise orchestration. Reverential, physical music, it evokes a rare experience that is beautiful, sparse and deeply intimate.
