loyal to its purpose the rufreaktor exploded
into something that we call loopreaktor

FREEDOM OR DEATH
pre melt! warm up concert
Its the way I want to live my life,
Having the freedom to make my own decisions and not adhere to the rules of others,
To make art for my own well being, not for acceptance from the masses,
To listen to what my heart beats to, not to slave for another’s,
Give me the FREEDOM to make a life I choose - or hand me my DEATH
is an Electro-Aerobic-Art-Pop duo from Canada.
Made up of Stephen Taylor (keyboard, vocals) and Xania Keane (violin, tap-dancing), this band is most happy on stage. Their live show is very theatrical, energetic and includes synchronized dancing, costume changes and spanking.
Three years ago, Trike won $20,000 on Canadian television competition “The Gong Show”. They used the money to tour across 16 European countries, performing hundreds of shows.
After 18 months of touring, Trike was robbed of all their money in Berlin. They couldn’t afford plane tickets back to Canada, so they decided to stay in Europe and work on a new album. They landed a Yamaha sponsorship, which allowed them to borrow professional recording equipment. As they set up a home-recording studio in a friend’s basement in Denmark, they were offered a record contract from Belgian label Cheap Satanism Records. Their album “Trike and the Vikings” was released in May. It received great reviews in European and North American publications, and is currently gaining popularity on US college radio. It charted in 9 cities, making it to #1 in Maine.
In 2011, Trike completed ‘Friday Songs’, a project that tested the speed of their creativity. The project required them to write and record a new song and music video every week. The videos are published on their website: http://www.trikeaband.com/
“Their music reflects their approach to life as to me they seem to be free from any boundaries,” Maurizio Pustianaz, Chain D.L.K (Full review here.)
“It’s hard to believe that they haven’t blown up more,”

“You know they’re a little off their rockers, but in a good way.”
Paul Silver, Jersey Beat
New Wave/ Rock (Berlin/ Germany)
The straight musical expression of rock'n'roll thrilled into a noisy music box.A yet undefined dreaming translation of the zeitgeist: a raw energy in a dream package.
Self-described as “one clear vocal with dirty guitar riffs”, this duo’s über-noise shoegaze guitars over lo-fi beats and loops is brilliantly complimented by the seductive female lead vocals of Marie Germinal. Sensitive and cacophonous at the same time, the band pulls off their intimate sets with great success.. byAlmightyWire
