These are some snippets of what was going through the OCCII between 2002 - 2009. The OCCII has a long history of existing as a self-sustainable independent venue. It provides a stage for the underground and radical music acts and its run almost entirely by volunteers. Each volunteer helps the venue in one way or another. In its 20-plus years of existence, OCCII has offered a diverse program while remaining cheap to attend.

The Puddle Parade opened the second night at the LE CLUB SUBURBIA now legendary 17 and 22 June events. Seven bands and live acts Noise Problems got most of it. We have now finished compiling and uploaded the last of the recordings from said events. Check out The Puddle Parade opener at the Free Music Archive. Check out The Puddle Parade´s album release "Origami" too
The Puddle Parade: [ðə ˈpʌdəl pəˈɹeɪd] 1. imaginary children’s game. while walking on the street after a summer rain, you have to make sure to step on either only puddles or no puddles at all. 2. one-girl band. loop lo-fi. a guitar gets looped and supplemented with singing, melodica and toy instruments. the result: frail lullabies with vague melodies and distorted, fading voices. in other words, a minimalistic crackling toy orchestra in slow motion. member: LN. tools: guitar, voice, loop station, melodica alto, melodica soprano, music boxes, children’s accordion, tooth brush, analog 4-track recorder, distortion pedals, xylophone, zither, dictaphone, and many more stuff

Another Sotu went by. This year´s Sotu was fantastic. Lots of stuff happening between OT301, OCCII, Vondelbunker and other places like the comic book shop "Lambiek", said to be the oldest comic book shop in the world, where we saw a live sketch battle. Awesome. At the Vondelbunker an unusual black metal program was very interesting with the Black Decades and Mannheim.
Impressive also was the 24 hour feedback/noise event "Giant Noise Feedback Show" at the OT301 where a giant sound installation unfolded in all public spaces at the OT301: the main hall and its bar space, the 4Bid Gallery, De Peper, the cinema and the cinema bar. In all spaces, simultaneously, noise acts performed. Their signals were fed to the Radio Patapoe studio in the basement, where a mixdown went live! Then the radio signal was again pickup by the acts, who used the radio signal to feed it back into their stuff!!! There was even a small set up with a mixer were the audience and visitors could add their 10 cent to the performance. Needless to say Noise Problems loved the concept! Well done Sotu & OT301 & Patapoe!

From Berlin´s underground Camera is heavily influenced by 70s Krautrock bands like Neu and Can and have been playing spontaneous guerilla-like shows in U-Bahn stations all over the city. They were at Festsaal Kreuzberg opening up for the mighty Trans Am aswell as several festival appearances including performances with Neu´s very own Michael Rother. Having just debuted an album you should (if in Berlin) try and catch them live by going to one of their shows. The music is psychedelic, hypnotic and intense.
Fortunately they also travel outside the underground tunnels of Berlin and showed up last December in Amsterdam for the Solaris Fest at Plantage Dok. Noise Problems was there and caught it all on´tape. Check out the whole voyage here at the FMA. Camera rules.
