GOMMA SUPER SHOW No.2 – 14.11.2009

show_09_2-A6

To see all the Gomma people together is quite hard. Everybody is in a different place: The Phenomenal Handclap Band in NYC, Rodion in Rome, WhoMadeWho in Copenhagen, Diskokaine is hanging in Tokyo right now, Golden Bug between Paris and Barcelona, Munk living in Marseille, Telonius in Munich…….

So last spring we started doing big “one off” parties in Berlin… to bring all guys in one place…we do it now 2 times a year…to get all the GOMMA family together.
The GOMMA SUPER SHOWS.

The next one will be on 14th November in Munich. We got this crazy One-Off location: The Munich Old City Hall which is a medieval city building, never used for parties. Most of the current Gomma guys will perform there: WhoMadeWho , Telonius, new portuguese disco band Moullinex, Munk, Golden Bug and
our old friend SHIT ROBOT from DFA and JUNIOR BOYS will come. We also have a little exhibition with the latest visuals by our boys SMALPAZE and Lukasz Jaworski.

Berlin’s POOL Gallery invited us to do a MONDOGOMMA exhibition in summer 2008. The POOL guys are specialized in these new things in new alternative art. Recently they did ARKITIP, MIKE MILLS and that kind of stuff. So it was nice to have this opportunity. Our illustrators SMAL and PAZE did a lot of obscure hight level enlightment shit. Big size prints, small size visual gimmicks. And we had a special guest illustrator: MISHA HOLLENBACH from P.A.M. from Melbourne contributed some big posters , too. We did a nice Vernissage there and afterward a big GOMMA Party at Cookies with MUNK, Telonius, Kaos…Yeah!

And yes: We released a new Amore Poster Magazine along the exhibition. (Including the P.A.M. stuff)
