Rasender Stillstand - Ausrasten
Rasender Standstill from Dortmund don't fit the typical image of a Ruhrpott punk band. Contrary to the usual "booze and brawl songs", the band moves away from simple phrases: issues such as the delusion of adaptation, consumption, indifference, exploitation, war, dictatorship, redistribution and social injustice are targeted. But also musically, "Rasender Standstill" ticks differently:
Intelligent, versatile, catchy-melodic, anarchic: PUNK ROCK!
"Rasender Standstill" is a metaphor of Western societies, in which everything is turbo and XXL, but the individual people mercilessly suggests "failure" with the smallest deviations from the beat, spits it out, socially and financially stigmatized: Standstill! The command "RasenderStandstill" has been racing and racing through the landscapes of the Republic since June 2010.
