yppasswdd daemons are:
mc pismo : vocals
casio vl-tone : lead synth / rythmbox
polysix : voltage controlled oscillator
farfisa : vco and strings
mfb-512 : rythmbox
human slaves: repogrrl, istari
mc cs5300 left the bad in cause of unexpected errors
in the early 1999 some machines, under the leadership of casio vl-tone, gathered in a smoky internet cabine. that was the time a manual comes the way by from a far finnish http server. casio vl-tone circuts run wild and he decided to join this dogma. His two friends polysix and the lovely farfisa was amazed too.
Next day in the early morning they started to jam up some tunes. but still something was missing. "a real band needs some steady drummer and a singer" said farfisa and that was the beginning of a greater quest. after several messages on alt.drummer.computer and misc.digital.singers the hope to find some qualified drummer and singer was nearly zero.
but it was polysix who went another day to a studio, were he hopes to earn some money as a studio-musican, and meet mfb-512, an old and nearly forgotten drumcomputer box, laying in the back of the studio, slowly disapearing under dust and the newer high tech equipment. Next day, mfb-512, comes up to the proving ground of the group around casio vl-tone, and they jammed the whole day and their poweradapters running hot. After some sessions mfb-512 brings up an old buddy of him, mc se30, who should be the first singer of the group.
that was the time istari and repogirl meet the yppasswdd daemons on an electronic and computer recycling factory, where mc se30 was getting his weekly ram. Two days later they started recording the first 7inch ep with six tracks. Sorrowly 2 weeks later mc se30 suffered under heavily inner circuit problems and left the band.
after the great impact on the worlds music scene, the yppasswdd daemons, went back to studio to record a couple of new tunes, to set the humans on fire and rock the house. they found a new singer, mc pb1200cs, and another musican, poly800 the little brother of polysix.

-how to create space for a very short time
- how to research
- poetological ethnology
- zombiism and self-management
- labour and failure
- sickness/disease and its relation to popculture
- the phenomenon of romanticising containerization / how to fall out of frames – the (abusive) use of headphones in so-called public spheres
- the (im)possibility of subversion
- the sexual history of the atomic bomb
All research projects have been performed live or have been exhibited. We have always tried to choose the appropriate media for each research project which in the process has brought us- especially in the last two years- to mainly using the form of lecture-performances including electronic cutup music. We have published several books, comics, audio works and records and administrate this webarchive.
Ritalin War Dance is a Berlin based musical project between dub, drone and doom. Founded late 2010, its members Martin Maischein and Robert Schirmer mix soundscaping experiments with noise and electronic dancemusic elements, combining their different musical backgrounds from harsh d’n’b, electrofunk and experimental electronic dance music (Maischein) to noiserock/punk/noise(Schirmer) to step into a new musical area, where they could use their skills in exploring and experimenting on something new to both.
Martin Maischein previously released a number of records under various pseudonyms such as Heinrich at Hart (Position Chrome), Sandbenders (Force Inc, Science City), Goner (Gone) and more since the mid-90ies, the latest being a 7″ on Kreislauf this January while Robert Schirmer played all Europe with his bands Gentle Veincut, Stresseuche and Budyet, with releases on noiserock labels like Whosbrain Records, Gaffer Records and Looptown.
Karl Marx Stadt is electronic music artist Christian Gierden (b. 1978) working mostly in the field of heavy, fast & complicated but cheesy dance music. Overwhelmingly emotional melodies, radiant spacey atmospheres, intricate but strong rhythmic structures make for a rewarding listener’s experience.
After slowly stepping back from the late 90ies mostly sample based hardcore project Society Suckers, recent years have spawned a love for analogue techniques, dub and stronger emphasis on melodic elements. Live shows can be an amusing blend of hyperen ergetic Rave mixing and carefully paced Dubbing sessions incorporating circuitbending, synthesizers, childrens toys and of course, the universe.
