MORE INFO ABOUT PUSSY RIOT

PUSSY RIOT speak: “we realized that this country needs a militant, punk-feminist, street band that will rip through Moscow’s streets and squares, mobilize public energy against the evil crooks of the Putinist junta and enrich the Russian cultural and political opposition with themes that are important to us: gender and LGBT rights, problems of masculine conformity, absence of a daring political message on the musical and art scenes, and the domination of males in all areas of public discourse.” http://www.vice.com/read/A-Russian-Pussy-Riot

SIATC *UPDATE* DECEMBER 2010

Dear Teacups,

What a truly phenomenal year we have had! Since our launch party in February this year, we have distributed our zine far and wide from the Womens library zine fair to the archives of the British library, we have DJ’ed at the George Tavern and shoulder to shoulder with JD Samson at Club Motherf*cker, put on events at our fave local; the Victoria and on the other end of the spectrum: The Southbank Centre– oh and not to forget we nearly killed ourselves helping to organise Ladyfest’s ten year anniversary celebration festival. In a nutshell we have worked with some of the most talented and influential feminist artists and organisers in London and we are extremely proud of the progress Storm in a Teacup collective has made over the past year. Enough gushing for now- we will save that for the January update and the 2010 year retrospective! Right now we are still feeling the gaping chasm that is the Ladyfest Ten hangover, trying to keep warm and scratching our collective brain trying to come up with some exciting plans and special treats for everyone in the New Year. Keep your eyes peeled for more open submissions, open meetings and lots of awesome cross-arts events.

Please visit our blog site to find out how to get involved in the collective and to keep up with the latest news. http://www.joinourteaparty.wordpress.com/

–Only UK Date–
Aerea Negrot’s oh my wow vocal gymnastics are like no other scheisse you’ve ever heard. Beleed dat! Since relocating to Berlin from her native Venezuela (via Amsterdam and London), she has gained a rep for ferosh live performances that have turned many a muso head. Most notably Ellen Allien, who signed her to the ledge label ‘BPitch Control’, and Andy Butler who recruited her as a touring and recording vocalist for the new Hercules and Love Affair album/live show. Killah!

MARINA GASOLINA
Marina Vello founded and fronted Domino signed, brazilian baile-funk trio Bonde Do Role. But after touring the world for two years straight, she left the band to focus on her solo career and like, broaden her horizons, man. Settling in London, she set about making a solo rekkid with beat-makers Radioclit and Electronicat that borrows as much from her punk roots as it does experimental electro. INNERESTING! Her debut track ‘Leone’, a homage to da master of Spaghetti Westerns – Sergio Leone, had its video premiere on Pitchfork this month. The single is a great taster of tings to come on the long player, with Marina’s unique vocal delivery and old meets new styling, marking her out as one to watch for defo.

KOOL THING
Julie Chance and Jon Dark make up the numbers in ‘Kool Thing’. The pair met in Gay Paree in the summer of 2010 at a party where Chance was Djing. They went on to spend the next 24 hours in the French capital swapping inspirations, and hatching planz. A month later Jon packed her bags and joined Julie in Berlin where they immediately started working on their first EP. Layered harmonies, distorted washes of guitar, constant driving beats and psychedelic synth tones are what you can expect. Amaze.
