Nothing Nice To Say Festival is now in its third year. A four day event held at select venues across Berlin, and unlike other similar ‘city based’ events, there are no bands clashing – so you can get to see all who play. It brings together hardcore, punk, post-punk acts and like minded people from across the globe. I met up with Nicole who was kind enough to chaperone me through the streets of the city that never sleeps and educate me on the anarchist / squatting history of Berlin, in particular the anarchist band Ton Steine Scherben who immediately struck me as a prototype Stooges.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in style, I have only been to this supreme underground DIY punk get together on and off over the years but a concerted effort seemed suitable for this one so me and Ste went up in good time on Friday to get there for the start.  Good time meaning we had ciders in the car, homebrew  wine in the hotel, and quality ales at The Sparrow before arriving with the other keen folks for the opening band of the evening.  Not just the drink but felt warm inside to return to the 1 in 12, such a great collective space, blessed with much quality refreshments here too.
