Lüül – Gut Zu Wissen
Zaine Griff will be performing at The Water Rats, Kings Cross, London, Friday 18th May
This is the only concert in UK this year. Zaine got so many requests to sing songs from Hans Zimmer’s Helden Spies Project. He will include an Ultravox song you may know and many songs from the “Ashes And Diamonds” and “Figvres” albums with Clive Edwards (drums, ex-UFO, Wild Horses), Steve “Boltz” Bolton (guitars, ex-Atomic Rooster, The Who, Paul Young), Ian Raines (bass and backing vocals, ex-Rococo), Vanessa Lewendon (keyboards) and Stevie Lange (backing vocals).

They want to share their view of the world with the people and do so by the motto “Spirit – Oneness – Unity – Love” – for the album just “Oneness”.
We are very excited to hear that Soul Basement and their message made it to “Album Of The Week” on the Dutch online charts “Hit-Tracks Top 100″. Furthermore, their song “Better Days” dropped into Hit-Tracks Top 100 on #34 this week.
Thank you to everyone who has worked with us on this special product!
On the 26th January 2018, he published his latest album “Words From The Wilderness”. He is represented on the Top 100 of the Dutch online charts by song “Back On Track” for already 14 weeks now! Just brilliant! Of course we are very excited and happy about that. At the moment, he’s got 49th place and we are hoping for it to last many more weeks!
A big thank you to everyone who made that success possible!
Besides their very successful albums such as “God’s Own Medicine” (1986), “Children” (1988) and above all “Carved In Sand” (1989), “The Mission” primarily established themselves as a live band: whether as a support act for (i.e.) “U2” or “The Cure” or as famous European festivals’ headliner – or on their own distinct tours. Wayne Hussey stresses in a lot of interviews that the key to the band is the live experience which you can rarely fully portray on the albums.
„…it’s difficult to think of comebacks more impeccable than Van der Graaf Generator’s”, the BBC wrote in awe about the over 50 years old progressive rock band’s reunion.
At the time, Peter Hammill (guitar, keyboards, singer), Hugh Banton (organ, piano), Guy Evans (drums) as well as David Jackson (saxophone, cross flute) Van der Graaf Generator’s “original line up”.
News from Moosicus Records. The release of Leon Redbone’s re-mastered CD “Strings And Jokes” takes us back to 1977. That year, Leon had two concerts in Bremen which both are going to be made accessible to fans (and willing to become fans) worldwide for the first time on 27th April 2018 through M.i.G. – music. What really stands out is his special character. He knew how to masterly combine the 1920’s music with blues, ragtime and folk which was crowned by his unconventional style to sing. Whether he sings, warbles, whistles or hums – he definitely reaches his fans with his warm and intimate voice.
Despite not having a lot of time between concerts, they show a totally different Leon Redbone. At his concert at the “Glocke”, he was supported by Jonathan Dorn and his tuba, whereas his show at the “Post-Aula” was a performance purely on his own. Leon’s unique performances as well as the combination of blues and folk-jazz were what his concerts lived from. At first, it seemed obscure because it was unusual but then, it evolved into a recording with charm and character. Fans should mark the date in their calendars!
In 2018, MIG Music is further pushing on with their activities in the fields of folk and folk rock.
After the first releases of the albums by two main players of English folk rock – Richard Thompson and Iain Matthews, both founding members of Fairport Convention and a live recording by the Irish cult band PLANXTY from the year 1979 (to come in March), another great Irish band has signed with MIG Music.
Recently, following long and intensive negotiations, MIG succeeded in finalizing the collaboration with the successful band CLANNAD. CLANNAD (picture from 1989) has the merit of having enthralled an audience all over the world with their attractive mixture of folk, rock, Irish and Celtic music.
Never let it be said that Iain Matthews is one to dwell on past successes. With the new edition of MATTHEWS SOUTHERN COMFORT, Iain Matthews is getting back a piece of his own past taking it into the here and now. But maybe this time was necessary until Matthews was ready to continue his musical journey with MSC.
He looked for fresh musicians and formed the band completely anew. MATTHEWS SOUTHERN COMFORT 2017 was supposed to sound modern but also build an arc to the band’s past. The concept of the band’s founder Iain Matthews is fully working: In conceiving and assembling this unique group of spirited and likeminded players, Matthews has once again surpassed all expectations. The musicianship and commitment are second to none and the sumptuous, soaring vocal harmonies instantly bring to mind the 60’s version of the band. MSC will be on tour in Germany and the Netherlands in March (dates here). In April a tour with Magna Carta will follow.
