Slow Club Freiburg präsentiert:
"Parade Ground, composed of two brothers Pierre and Jean-Marc Pauly started performing live in 1981.
They were one of the pioneers of the Belgian Cold Wave and Electronic Body Music .
The first single, 'Moan on the sly', was released in 1983 and they remained active until now ( however they decided
not to release anything between 1988 and 2007, being involved in other artistic projects like novels-writing and plastic art ).
Their style has evolved during the eighties, passing from an icy and radical cold wave to a more dancing sound with noticeable rythmics and exclusively synthetic melodies mixed up with dreamy visual dadaism.
They regularly collaborated with members of belgian band Front 242, were produced by english producer Colin Newman of Wire and wrote and composed on two Front 242 albums in 1994.
They toured in various European countries and have been an inspiration for many bands .
A new album 'Rosary' was released in 2007 , produced by Patrick Codenys (Front 242) .
The band are well known for their singular and striking live performances all over Europe ('the choreography of chaos') . The band have recently released several Best of compilation.
Nao Katafuchi is an electronic musician who creates his own world of dark romantic
Growing up in the suburb of Tokyo in the 1980's, where the growth of hi-tech
industry was years ahead from the rest of the world, influenced what would later
become his retro-futuristic trademark sound.
He relocated to New York City's Lower East Side in the early 90s, where he started
working as an audio engineer for recording production companies; slowly forming his
own music project aside.
After years of experimenting with different projects and scenes, Nao finally found a
niche of musically kindred spirits at the Wierd Record's weekly party, where he
made his debut performance as Nao Katafuchi. Deeply involved in the thriving
minimal synth scene of the City – together with local acts such as Xeno &
Oaklander, Martial Canterel, Epee Du Bois, Figure Study and Led Er Est – he
eventually met Willie Burns of WT Records, who released his first EP, Yumegoto, in
Follwing a few small European tours, Nao moved his home base to Germany in the
late 2015, and released his first full length album Émergence from Nadanna /
Anna Logue Records. He’s continuing performing in Europe and, and shared the
bill with some iconic bands such as ChameleonsVox, Rational Youth, Psyche,
Attrition and Parade Ground. In the autumn of 2019 he released his second
album Stalhgrau from a partnership of 3 synth music dedicated labels Kernkrach,
TONN Recordings and Castle Records.
On the production side, he helped the reissuing of the records of Japanese obscure
artists from the 80’s, Tomo Akikawabaya (Minimal Wave, 2015), Nihon No
Wave (Mecanica, 2018). He also has co-produced the upcoming release of
Japanese primitive synth wave artist Mojo Beatnik. (Kernkrach 2022) And more
