List compiled by Haris Hararis
August 13 2001 Laibach re-release from 1985
Neue Konservativ will be re-released on CD by Cold Spring Records. This album was originally released as a semi-official bootleg in 1985. It was recorded at the Neue Konservativ Festival. The new version will be released in October, probably the 29th.
May 18 2001 Concert in Praha
June 1st, Laibach will perform at the Palac Akropolis in Prague (Czech Republic). There will also be a support band, probably from the NSK music label. You can get your tickets at www.ticketpro.cz.
March 30 2001 Wave Gotik Treffen
Laibach will perform at "Wave Gotik treffen" in Leipzig, Germany this summer (June 1-4). Other bands include Coil, Front 242, London After Midnight and Pouppee Fabrikk.
Banned 1997 performance on DVD?
The very controversial concert Laibach made together with the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra in 1997, may be released on a DVD later on. Back in 1997 both the Church and the politicians in Slovenia reacted strongly against Laibach and even the Philharmonic Orchestra was split in two camps afterwards.
We (Laibach) were absolutely forbidden to use or show this material publicly for several years. Now the situation is getting better and we hope to get the event released on DVD some day.
Over at www.nexus.hu/boot you can listen to a very amusing version of Aqua's song "Barbie Girl" dedicated to Laibach and the NSK. Thanx Attila Jager.

The Arvika gig
