I Can´t Relax In Deutschland - Conne Island, Leipzig (21.05.2005) - Poster
Working out projects beside releasing self-containing records of bands is our way to express thoughts and aproaches.
If you take a compilation as The Anti Rockstar Revolution (2002) this marks a temporary and interim stage of our work to support a critical popular culture. A well-ment approach bleached in course of time. Turn It Down (2004) therefor has it´s legitimation until today: Fighting fascists, nazi´s culture and rally musicians around the Turn It Down-project to statement that. The problem with "Turn It Down" was a more organizational one. 13 Labels releasing 1 record is way too much. Also it was too easy to ask only hardcore- and punkbands that knew the problems of Hatecore and Nazi-Punks. Then there was a big weakness - the format of releasing this media on vinyl only. Vinyl almost speaks to a punkscene and does not reach wider public. Out of this reason I Can´t Relax In Deutschland (2005) was a more fundamental critic and logic concept. Bands of a - so called - mainstream popscene took part, bands whose fans do not know they stand for antinational, antirascist or antifascist actions. It was the biggest win for all involved, i guess.
