T.H.O.P. 08, the 8th edition of the The Hands Off Project event-series in VERA, is here!!!!!!! We've been doing this for a while now aye.  On the display: eggcelent DIY punk extravaganza, hoarder synth-opera-dub and electronics. Audrey told me this is her favourite line-up so far, soooo....!



About the acts:

Eggnostic Shellshock is a soundcloud rapper with eggistential dread. this popstar egg is trying to answer life’s questions through songs and music videos about its predicaments as egg. they are located in the Netherlands and are about 4 years old. Just laid ? yes, and cracked so very soon.

“Is dit (g)oud of kan het weg?” [It this (g)old or can I throw it away?] spullen is a half French, half Dutch quartet that is looking for meaning in the clutter of sound they encounter; to create music that belongs to everyone. While combining electronic instruments, electric guitars & classical vocals the group draws inspiration from minimal synth, no wave, opera and dub. Hoarders never lose anything, so embrace the noise of your surroundings. Rommel, zooi, troep, spullen.

Musique Chienne is CANCELLED, but Acidic Male is now added to the lineup! Since 2019 Puck Schot has been producing and DJ-ing under the name of Acidic Male. Her high appreciation for electronic experiments combined with a love for simply letting go reflects in these mixes and result in harsh dreamscapes. When she produces music herself, she often includes her poetry in her tracks, sometimes whispering, sometimes screaming, combining samples with modulation and synthesis.
