Generation Aldi, the unloved bastard of Bülent Kullukcu’s liaison dangereux with MTV-Generation is dirty, aggressive pop-music. Retro-flavored synthlines over bass-heavy electro/techno-tracks with strangely distorted, uncomfortable lyrics. Kullukcu, whose parents are Turkish first-generation immigrant-workers, likes to call it ‘subtly’ political. Their on-stage show features Jugo-chick dancing girls, VJ Kaundown (Console) and Albert Tempel (lyrics and hooklines), a charismatic singer whose background is rather unusual. He scored well in a number of competitions which where thought as a piss-take of the European Song-Contest and proved himself in various TV and movie productions before he got to meet Kullukcu. His unique style flirts with the likes of Bowie, Iggy Pop and is mixing German and English lyrics like Falco. Kullukcu the bass machine from the depths of Istambuls Kasbah provides the Aldi-beat to it. The current album Mini System represents the artists diversified background ranging from post-punk and ambient songs to EBM and nu-electro tracks. Broken synthesizers, squared appegiators, funky guitars and toy instruments for a trashed generation. A “must” to hear and see it!
