Screaming Claws

hey there.. I wanna tell you about something really great! There are people over the world making touching, intense, fluorescent music.. some of them are part of the collective Screaming Claws … Natalie Chami (Chicago), Brian Griffith (LA) and Steffi Neuhuber (Vienna) wanna bring some good stuff to you! lay down and listen to….

“A collection of interesting folk and peculiar sounds. Tingling up your spine and out your eyes; may cause euphoria and fear, but always worth a listen.

The philosophy of ScreamingClaws extends to the history of Philosophy itself: because we cannot exist in the past nor the future, we may only exist in what we are conscious of currently, at the present moment. Memories are imagined remembrances of what was and the future is a prophecy and clairvoyant hope of our destination. We exist only in the unmeasurable abyss of Now and improvisational music is a way to explain it. As a bridge from the past to the future, every time you follow your bliss you fortify its strength. Improvisational music is why ScreamingClaws came into being. Listen. Contribute. Expand.”


Los Angeles

We experienced the real American live the last 2 days in LA. We stayed in North Hollywood with Luke in this great house.. the first evening we met my old schoolmate and her friend and it was great to see Yvi again before they move to Florida.

On Wednesday we went to St Monica and Venice beach, we strolled down next to the Ocean and wondered where all the crazy people were… we saw them on our way back. On our way home we decided to take a detour to the Mullholland Drive, it was amazing.. great view.. and yes there s really massive traffic in LA. On our way home we stopped at In n Out and had a great burger and handmade fries.. and ‘oh my god is this good I can’t believe it’ shake. In the evening we went to a small independent cinema Laemmle to watch ‘2 days New York’. great, positive movie and cool for me ’cause I’m flying to NYC tomorrow.

Today, our last day together on this great trip! We saw the Hollywood letters, lucky for me who was driving on our way to Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset. We passed the Chinese theater, saw some stars and went to Amoeba. We v been to so many record stores during the last few weeks but this was really the biggest. I have to say very impressive.. and Katrin got lost again, looking through all the cds and records. Afterwards we decided to go to Universal City Walk.. and had the most fatty and heaviest fries ever: chili cheese fries with meet.. oh my god. Unfortunately we were to late for a Universal Tour.. but whatever there’s probably a next time.

I already packed my stuff.. Katrin still tries to get all the cd s and clothes into her backpack..ah and before I forget. we also had a gun experience (we hold some in our hands). actually I d like to go to try them with Luke one day (maybe, I am not quite sure yet).

In a few hours we go to the airport. Katrin is flying back to Vienna, I’m going to meet Bernd in NYC and our paths divide. Still we are going to keep you updated about Black Biuti… and watch out for our stickers 😉
