POGO summer solo

JEALOUSY PARTY | MySpace Music Videos

MAT POGO will play a vocal solo set at N.K. on Saturday 29th May.
In the same evening Kouhei Matsunaga, Pato and Slütspürt will perform.


At the beginning of the new millennium y2k the band Slütspürt was born in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark. But after about 5 years of happy childhood exploring the Danish experimental scene, the band decided to move to Berlin to broaden horizons and experience a new musical scene.

The music of Slütspürt is often hard to capture in words, because the band has been experimenting with an awful number of different things over the last 6 years; home-build instruments, instruments ripped apart, instruments hardly working but also plain old electric guitars, drums, saxophones, power-tools and so on. You might say that the foundation of Slütspüts’s musical interaction is improvisation and free music. Lately the band has been working intensely with drones, feedback and noise, witch often lead into playing very long pieces using violin, electric guitars, laptop, saxophones, ethnical instruments and other objects. These long pieces can also hold elements of folk inspired improvisation, ambient electronic parts and single chord guitar striking.

The four members of Slütspürt are also the heart of the experimental music collective yoyooyoy. In yoyooyoy there are 10 working bands, numerous side and solo projects, all consisting of at least one of the four Slütspürt members. yoyooyoy has made 18 releases and done more than 200 shows in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Germany.

Slütspürt has released records on the Danish label Ninth World Music, which also features releases by artist such as: David Thomas, Peter Brötzmann, Mats Gustafson, Pat Thomas, Evan Parker, label director Peter Ole Jørgensen.

Slütspürt has worked with Norwegian Noise Orchestra at Radio Nova festival in Oslo 2004, Pat Thomas at Copenhagen jazz festival 2005, Dane T.S. Hawk, Peter Ole Jørgensen and many others.

Slütspürt is Johs Lund, Anders Lauge Meldgaard, Toke Tietze Mortensen and Andreas Führer.

As well as live improvisations with tabletop guitarrist Olivier Di Placido and occasional collaborations inside EVOL, a computer music cell leaded by Roc Jiménez de Cisneros.
