i am happy to announce that dirac get their own radio portrait on austrian national broadcast agency oe1 . date is the 29th of july, 23:03-00:00. you can listen to a live stream >>> .
our new record phon will be played in full length (44 min.), so if you haven’t had a chance to listen to our latest record yet, you can do it by then.
a much more important part of this ‘dirac radio-portrait’ is the announcement that the state of austria is once again is pulling strings against political activists and threatens them to make use of one of the most questionable constructions within austria’s legal system : §278.
this time one of our best friends who supported dirac ever-since is affected. She and three other activists are imprisoned on demand probably until the end of august . We posted a statement with more information on our website >>>
to announce a more hopeful and musical point of view onto or related to egypt:
‘the Egyptian Light Orchestra Land of Kush’ , formed by one of my favourite musicians with roots from egypt is the montreal based sam shalabi; find a nicely written articel by ‘oe1 zeitton’ (austrian’s national radio series, focusing on ‘new and experimental music’) on sam shalabi and land of kush’s Egyptian Light Orchestra here>>> (german only), where sam shalabi also talks little about kairo’s underground music-scene.
