And here are Bob Rusche's personal tips to the festival.


Chris & Cosey:

Mostly curious on seeing Chris & Cosey. Ever since the split of the alltime best band ever Throbbing Gristle I just adored everything they did. Either their incarnations as Chris & Cosey, or being CTI, or Carter-Tutti, or their collaborations with as diverse acts as Lustmord or Eurythmics, they were good. Utterly good. Grauzone will give you the opportunity to surrender yourself to their unique sounds still holding very strong in 2014.


Twice A Man:

Out of the ashes of Cosmic Overdose came Swedish experimental/electrowave outfit Twice A Man who surprised us in 1982 with their debut album Music For Girls, released in Holland by Frizzbee records, a Boudisque Records sublabel. From there the band produced many albums with their own melancholic songs on driven beats. Looking forward on seeing them again at Grauzone!~


Jah Wobble:

I have actually two favourite bassplayers: Jah Wobble is one of them, and he is coming to give us a treat at Grauzone. So never mind my other favourite, being Bill Laswell, he's staying home.
Jah himself is going to do his dub-thing, and I like that. Anyone familiar with his bass-sounds knows what he/she is in for. And maybe some older PIL tracks? Jah only knows.
