Skizzen Vom Aufbegehren Und Vom Scheitern
"BUG are no small insect, easily crushed and destroyed. Quite the contrary, Bug are a destroyer-beast. A psychotic, destructive, manic killer-hunk of noise-rock. Think of the best names in the noise-rock-alphabet, from A like Arab On Radar to Z like Zeni Geva, Bug is one big-assed entry in that lexicon. Heavy percussions, distorted guitars, vocals that growl, howl and scream like any beast from the horror-dictionary, and some electronics to boot. If you were born somewhere in the early to mid Seventies, then you experienced the best noise-rock-years during the most important part of your musical-puberty - then you are going to like this a lot." says Georg of Cracked. BUG/HARDCORE tells the story of M. Foulland, a mentally disturbed writer. While studying the original edition of Die Käfer des deutschen Reiches by Edmund Reitter alongside the lyrics and music of BUG he composes 15 literary fragments, sketches of his delusional personality, in a single night. His story, however, is not related in traditional ways. In the book that accompanies the CD the reader is confronted with restaurations of Foullands fragments (in German), scribbled on his copy of Reitters book, the original lyrics by BUG (in English) that inspired them and several pictures taken in the process. The CD on the other hand contains selected songs by BUG, recitations by Foulland as well as five short black-and-white films (playable on almost every computer system). Marlene Gíslason, a Swedish artist from Malmö (Sweden), reconstructed the writings and produced the films. BUG is an Austrian hardcore-collective that has been active for more than 10 years, releasing five albums and several singles.
