The film premiere was great! Me and my friends were among the youngest in
the cinema, taking part in this class renunion of sorts.
Just to be clear, Punk Cocktail is not a straight ahead documentary, there
are no interviews and the live super 8 video footage is without sound.
Instead the images are matched with a soundtrack of recorded songs from the
bands. There is various footage of Kleenex, from their first ever gig in
March 1978 at Club Hey as well as a performance outdoors in a stripped tent
(great backdrop). There are also super fun pieces from Mother¹s Ruin, as
well as live footage of TNT, videos from Grauzone and lots more. Highly
My next radio show, Tiger Beat, on Radio LoRa in Zürich, will be dedicated
to Swiss girls of punk from the 70s and 80s. With the help of some old
school Züri punks I re-discovered a storehouse of songs and bands from the
era, including some rare and special tracks. Air date is Monday, October 23,
22.00-24.00 CET. Outside of Zürich you can tune in on-line at
www.lora.ch/webradio.php or download the mp3 podcast on my website a few
days later (www.jennywoolworth.ch). I¹m looking to invite one or the other
scenesters from the time, we¹ll see who I can rope into the studio...
The next big event is the premiere of Lurker Grand¹s 300+ page book ³Hot
Love: Swiss Punk and Wave 1976-1980.² It will be available for sale at the
beginning of November directly from the website www.swisspunk.ch.
Also an eight song LP ³Schizo Terrorist² from the former Geneva band The
Bastards is planned for release at the end of October, featuring previously
unheard studio and live recordings from 1977. The Bastards featured a
punkette named Marie-Pierre on vocals. Again check swisspunk.ch for ordering
That¹s the news from this corner of the world, quite a hum of activity at
