Never Trust Cock Rock is a magazine and blog about women* in electronic music, that merges articles from and about woman in the electronic music scene from the net. Founded in 2012 and situated in Leipzig, the blog collects articles, links, pictures and music absolutely subjective. The blog is heading for a self-reflective music scene in Leipzig and other places, where dance crews, organizers and DJ’s understand activism not in terms of visible and invisible male majority and identity only. The term „cock rock“ in this blog is to be understood as one term, referring to the same term coined in the 1970s from female music journalists, who were fed-up with the aggressive expression and life-style of male performances on stage that were going hand in hand with the degradation of woman/ the female in lyrics, life-style, performance and life praxis in general. So the term „cock rock“ is to be understood as a concept that works reality, creating reality and reproducing reality. The male dominated subculture of cock rock and all it’s dominating expressions and acts continues till nowadays as part of the cultural system in general. In all musical categories- electronic music included. The term „never trust“ refers to your critical reason as a human to challenge and doubt things and ongoings that are taking place in your daily life and of course in close connection to your beloved musical subculture you are actively fan of, participating actively in or be a main part of (or not).
