We are proud to announce that one of our musical heroes has accepted our invitation to Cafe Nona: Mark Reeder.
Mark Reeder. You might know him from the soon-to-be cult film ‘B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West-Berlin 1979-1989’ amongst many other successes in his career. He was the German representative for Factory Records (Joy Division and others), formed a band with Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall (The Frantic Elevators), also worked for many bands, including the now legendary punk band Die Toten Hosen. He also formed a synthpop duo ‘Die Unbekannten’, with drummer of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds- Alistair Gray. He has been described as one of the Godfathers of early electronic music and goth rock. Organising secret gigs around Berlin, he is definitely one of the deepest roots in electronic music that we experience today. His remixes span across a plethora of artists across many genres, including Depeche Mode, New Order, John Foxx, Pet Shop Boys, Anne Clark, Die Toten Hosen, Westbam, and many many others.
We cant think of anyone else that could follow up to Mark’s set other than the mighty whydie? from Prague’s ( Rare ) collective.
This event is tied with Wednesday’s screening of ‘B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West-Berlin 1979-1989’ and talk with Mark Reeder, being the main protagonist of the movie. The screening takes place at Goethe Institut.
