DIE ALTEN MASCHINEN [CZ]
Moimir Papalescu and Leon Stevenson are behind international cyber-band DIE ALTEN MASCHINEN.
You may know Moimir from Moimir Papalescu & The Nihilists or Vanessa, while Canadian singer and drummer Leon Stevenson is a member of new-wave band The Extras. Gerald V. Casale, the leader of now-legendary group DEVO also works with the group in the studio.
The Maschinen recently released their third album dubbed NEW MOTORS. The members of the group call their music robopop. “We’re living in the age of robots. Today’s times lack the romance we know from the early sci-fi stories. That’s why these emotions appear in our music; they’re something akin to fairy tales. Basically, we’re the ones who are still fully connected to this aesthetic and thus we still have a sort of techno-optimism and retro-futurism,” Moimir Papalescu told us.
