4 Mar 2013, 00:16 by franko-gapDvije godine nakon ponovnog okupljanja, Atari Teenage Riot konačno nastupaju u Zagrebu.
U vremenu kada su zagrebački klubovi preplavljeni dosadom nostalgičnih slušaona, šminke i ofucanog dubstepa – nastup ovog pionirskog digital hardcore benda svakako dolazi kao dah svježeg zraka. Konačno nešto drugačije.
Priznajem da sam i sam pred dvije godine bio vrlo skeptičan kada sam čuo za ponovno okupljanje ATR-a, zbog čega sam, uvjeren da se radi o još jednom nostalgičnom reunionu, propustio njihov nastup u Rijeci na Harteri 2010. No čim sam poslušao njihov prvi album u tom obnovljenom sastavu, shvatio sam da sam bio u krivu. Is This Hyperreal? (2011.) ostavlja dojam o bendu koji ne odbacuje svoju prošlost, ali nije niti njome opterećen, nego živi i djeluje u aktualnom trenutku.
U petak 14. prosinca ove godine, ATR su svirali u zagrebačkoj Tvornici Kulture. Po prvi put u Zagrebu. Doduše, Alec Empire je već svirao u Močvari 2005. godine, kada je promovirao svoj solo album Futurist, a u pratećem bendu bila je i Nic Endo. …

5 Apr 2011, 20:42 by amodelofcontrolWhere on earth is time going? Time once again for my usual monthly roundup of great new songs.
Track of the month:
They are back at last, and christ this is odd. But then, it is Battles. The first band to make post-rock, or at least their highly technical take on it, sound truly fun on their last album Mirrored (I challenge you not to listen to Race:In or particularly Atlas, one of my top tracks of 2007, without a smile on your face), despite losing a band member it's abundantly clear from the lead single from the new album that we're about to see more of the same. Guest vocalist Matias Aguayo appears to have enormous fun contorting his voice around the odd sounds developing around him - and manages to help the song come to life initially with what sounds like an imitation of a steam train! This is infectious, summery music, and I can only hope the rest of the album continues in the same wide-eyed vein. If anyone can do it, Battles can.

15 May 2010, 16:51 by chrisfishlockWed 12 May – Atari Teenage Riot
When Atari Teenage Riot last played London in 1999, it was at Brixton Academy and it was supporting Nine Inch Nails, MC Carl Crack was had too many drugs to make it on stage and female vocalist Hanin Elias had just walked out of the band, Alec Empire and Nic Endo still took the stage playing a set of harsh white noise, shortly afterwards the band split up. Bring time forward to 2010, and the band have reunited for a string of dates (including this single London show) and a new single, and if we are lucky a lot more.
The band opened the set with new single Activate, within seconds they bring their unbelievable force of energy to the venue, while the crowd goes insane; the track is a perfect opener and sounds great with such an enthusiastic crowd, the atmosphere and energy during this song showed us from the start just how special this gig was going to be. …
23 Mar 2010, 18:48 by amodelofcontrolI've been thinking a lot about death of late. A friend sadly passed away on Sunday night after a long battle with illness, while in the musical world the death of Alex Chilton, frontman of Big Star, last week cast something of a shadow over SXSW - not least because he was due to play with his reformed band on Saturday night at the festival. The remainder of the band decided to go-ahead with the show, with a number of big alt-rock names assisting on vocals as something of a sweet tribute. And these events, not to mention the recent suicide of Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse, resulted in this week's Tuesday Ten being about how the death of a member affects bands. It doesn't always result in the end of a band, instead sometimes spurring bands onto even greater heights, and some might cynically say that in some cases death results in being the best advertising they could ever have. So, this week, I'm looking at bands that have lost one or more members to death, and what happened after the event. …

Widmo KRYZYSU niestety dotarło nawet do moich żurnali - ilość aktywnych czytelników spadła drastycznie i to (między innymi) powstrzymywało mnie przed pisaniem kolejnych części. Dzisiaj jednak jest jeden z tych dni, w których alternatywą do pisania żurnala jest np. patrzenie się w ścianę - tak więc raczej biorę się do dzieła.
Nie ma co ukrywać że pierwsza, druga i nawet trzecia liga została już przeze mnie wyczerpana, tak więc musiałem się trochę pomęczyć żeby wydobyć 5 kolejnych zawodniczek, co do których byłbym pewien że je znam dobrze i że są warte wzmianki. Do dzieła więc.
Nic Endo - Atari Teenage Riot
Bardzo łatwa do zapamiętania jest Nikola, ze względu na swój wizerunek sceniczny - skóry, wytapetowana na biało twarz z mrocznym anarcho-japońskim znakiem... przyciągała mój wzrok na każdym klipe ATR, a gdy zespół przestał istnieć…
