appearance of Dr. Fraggle & Mr. Tscheitsch playing a short set on their own. Ampl:tude will we there, Petula's UNS will play. and the two wonder boys of Jump & Run will have a new single out on Floppi Records. reasons upon reasons to celebrate!

17.05.18 - JUMP AND RUN
hi! please make sure not to miss this: JUMP & RUN are Nepumuk & Ruff Tuff Tuff aka Knowsum & Johannes Lauxen and they are dope as fuck. we will celebrating the tape release of their short but teriffic masterpiece "musik ist sich egal 2". Freddy and i will open for them and we are very much looking forward to it! Kastanienkeller, Berlin-Prezlauer Berg is the place to be on friday may 25th!

hey y'all! finally 18! a happy new year to you - jepp, you in particular! if you are reading this you are one of a chosen (?) few. and you're special. with the new year being here, i realized that i missed out on spreading the word about the still new Ampl:tude record, that we named "ENDLICH MITTWOCH". you can get it on our bandcamp page or through other means of modern online technology (fascinating!).
that being said ... there's a Kid Ikarus show coming up. i'll open up for Sweden's/Berlin's very own Sockiplasts at Laika in Berlin on the 20th of January. looking forward!

20.09.17 - BINGO & BONGO

kleiner text:
Wenn der Zweck die Mittel heiligt, dann haben wir es hier mit einer sich selbst in den Schwanz beissenden Doppelfrechheit zu tun. Der allmächtige Dilletantismus und das über dem Können stehende einfach-machen sind Zündkerze, lange Leitung und Teilchenbeschleuniger zugleich. Vielleicht ein Keyboard, vielleicht eine Triangel. Vielleicht der Schmadder aus alter Cola und Fusseln auf dem Boden in der Ecke da drüben. Aus allem kann man eine dumme Idee machen. Die Kid Ikarus Halbplaybackshow auf Abwegen. Es lebe die dumme Idee.

31.03.11 - PARIS, OLD SCHOOL

11.02.11 - PIXIES
pretty last minute. the KID will, in some form, yet unknown to himself, take part in tomorrow's actions at schokoladen. it's a Pixies cover evening, introduced by some covers of The Replacements. it will be fun.
