February 14th 2021 CELEBRATING MY 53th BIRTHDAY not like i normally would with a gig or a dj-set somewhere. So i spinned a party for me myself and i, with a selection out of my personal favorite dancefloor classics you can traditionally find on MIXCLOUD !
But for the very first time, i filmed a part of the dj-set and spiced it up a bit, cuz normally i find dj streams and watching a dj in general rather boooring. But since these are exceptional times i made an exception. So you're all invited on my birthday party in my living room. Hope you enjoy !

Butsenzeller's end of the year list in a dj-mix is a tradition.

And check the complete list with explanation on LUMINOUS DASH ! Happy holidays and may 2021 become a year with more gigs, parties and more social contact in good health, hope to see you around.

December 14th 2020 A FEW MORE ESCAPADES BEFORE THE YEAR ENDS !
First up in the last releases is a brandnew Hersencellen track & video. This time not as part of The Covid Collabs, but a proper studiorecording as a band. Enjoy !
December 6th 2020 WOW WHAT KIND OF LATEST NEWS THIS IS ! In a year so unearthly with artistic activities that mostly took place within four studio walls instead of stages, this is the crown of them all ! Hero and friend Larry Boothroyd of the allmighty Victims Family started collecting one minute musical snippets from musicians/friends from all over the world 8 years ago. Today there is the result: a double vinyl LP "Four Walls" a listening experience that could be compared to switching radiochannels every minute, but only to stations where they broadcast great and interesting instrumentals. Or listening to a random Naked City album for that matter. And YES ! Butsenzeller is included for 30 seconds together with Scale Sheer Surface and Oeioei companion Manuel Sanz Arques amongst 80 minutes of other heroes like Jello Biafra and members of bands like NoMeansNo,Trans Am, Butthole Surfers, Alice Donut and Primus ! We're so not worthy ! A humble bow and a huge thank you ! Click photo for purchase info !
November 16th 2020 NEW SCOUNDRELS TRACK AFTER 30 YEARS !! Yep we were rehearsing for quite a while , with the intention to do some gigs again, cause we felt that the world can use some honest punk again. We also recorded new stuff and we did the Crass remixes already. More songs and an eventual album will follow when we feel like it. In the meantime download this and one more track on the fresh Scoundrels Bandcamp Page ! and enjoy the Blue Sky Over Wasteland video here !
October 23th 2020 COVID COLLABS CASSETTES ARRIVED !! Order your high quality ferro audiocassette with great Bert Lezy artwork, including a downloadcard for digital version of the album + bonustracks. From now on physical merch can also be ordered directly from the bandcamp page !
