The Shakespeares of the Russian underground and the Joyces of the Austrian avantgarde on a same night, when all people will laugh and stun at the same time.
NOM is an acronym for the Russian "Informal Youth Organization" (Neformalnoe Obyedinenie Molodezhi), used by the official Soviet press in 80-s. The band "NOM" appeared in St. Petersburg in 1987 as an absurdic-ironical answer to the great number of "rock" bands in post-soviet Russia. The band used musical cliches of all kinds mixed queerly together with elements of mimic show of idiots, thus reaching strong emotional effect over public.
Critics called NOM "The last bastion of ruthless Russian satire", following literaturial traditions of Gogol and Kharms. NOM's music is a fascinating combination of traditional Russian melodies, rock, progressive rock and even opera.
NOM has been famous for its astonishing live shows and really amusing videos in which it has made fun of all the taboos which had something to do with Soviet Union or also modern Russia. Besides music NOM is also involved in producing comic and feature films, publishing books.

Dieb13 is the performing name of Dieter Kovačič, a Viennese based avant-garde musician. He has also performed under the names Takeshi Fumimoto, Echelon, Dieter Bohlen, and dieb14. After appearing on several compilations documenting the burgeoning Viennese avant-garde scene of the late 1990s, he released his first solo album in 2000. He has gone on to perform in a number of collaborations with other notable performers, including Burkhard Stangl, erikm, Mats Gustafsson and the John Butcher Group.
The eccentric duo, Didi Bruckmayr and Sigi Aigner, both known as singers of notorious performance-band Fuckhead, have been dedicating themselves to musical and visual experiments in clubs, white cubes and theatre venues since 2008. In "Interzone", "proband" Bruckmayr constructs an associative text using fragments from Burroughs’s same-named collection of short stories and notes, opening the door to the unconscious: a surreal monologue held in the weirdest voices, to the point of mental and physical exhaustion. "Sound machinist" Aigner stimulates the dreamlike condition of his colleague by means of abstract digital sounds and organic rhythms. Beware: deep bass lines, drones and frantic 3D objects for a happy audience.
