Atari Teenage Riot - With Full Force - Ferropolis, Germany - June 24, 2017ATR is a German digital hardcore group originally formed in Berlin in 1992. They used the Atari ST computer to create songs and put political punk rock vocals to them.
Alec Empire, one of the founders, and Nic Endo, a noise artist that joined four years later, took the stage at With Full Force after having reunited in 2010, ten years after the band’s separation and the original band member Crack’s early hand at death. Alec jumped at least 10 times on stage, and I don’t mean mini jumps – I mean actual leaps. Nic went from bouncing up and down to getting down low and arching all the way back during certain songs. It appears to have been Rowdy Superstar who was in the background keeping the music going along.
Atari Teenage Riot released Reset in 2015, and they aren’t showing any signs of slowing down.
