BIOGRAPHY

They look as unlikely as their name sounds. Which is no surprise if you know how their project came into being, on a drunken and loud New Year’s Eve. During this changeover, from the year 2008 to 2009, in Vienna, Daniel Helmer and Julian Skone, afterwards joined by Christoph Mateka, had the idea of Gudrun Von Laxenburg. Their sole duty being to make people dance relentlessly, sweatingly and cheerfully, the trio create a “tekkno-punk madness”, an explosive cocktail based on drums, vocoder and analogical synths where BPMs never fall below 170! And rumour has it that on stage, somewhere between surprise parties and happenings (frenzied lights, images projected in tune), Gudrun Von Laxenburg even succeed in making the walls sweat. And the ceiling, too. In 2017 the trio released their debut album “PANIC!“.
