Peter Pankas Jane – Live At Rockpalast – In Stores April 28, 2017
“Mirage” is one of the most popular and important albums within Klaus Schulze’s complete creative period. Schulze’s 8th album debuted in April 1977. MIG Music celebrates this 40th anniversary with a re-release that has not been released before in a digital format. This new release of the completely revisited work will be available from April 28, 2017.
In the 1980’s, “Mirage” had been digitally remastered before. Obviously, this version which had been done under the technical circumstances of the time provided the basis for a variety of further releases. These different CD versions were released more than 30 years ago, and they are all based on this first mastering which is further away from the original than tolerable. Since the original material is no longer available, an extensive cleaning procedure was necessary to come as near to the acoustic origin as possible.
After THE BEAT FARMERS and Dick Montana, MIG Music releases another band with a charismatic front man: Doug Sahm and THE TEXAS MAVERICKS. Of course, the name Doug Sahm is being connected with the legendary Sir Douglas Quintet which became immortal with classics like “Mendocino”, “She’s About A Mover” and “Dynamite Woman”.
The hyperactive artist crossed the borders between country, blues, influences from the British invasion, Honky Tonk und Psychedelia – all these varieties he cultivated mostly in parallel bands. Today, Sahm is regarded as one of the forefathers of Tex-Mex because he mixed all these influences with Mexican elements like Conjunto. In retrospect, it seems he had to hurry to present all of his ideas to the world because unfortunately, he died far too early.Doug Sahm also founded The Texas Tornados which accordion legend Flaco Jiménez is a part of. After the death of their mastermind, the band is now lead by Shawn Sahm, a son of Sir Doug. And there is another combo: THE TEXAS MAVERICKS. Sahm and his companions took rockabilly and rock’n’roll of the late Fifties for inspiration and played it in their very own style. More
The MIG Music team is especially looking forward to working with this living legend: BRÖSELMASCHINE. The band was founded in 1968 and released their debut vinyl in the year 1971. Eleven years after their last album – a live recording initiated by the WDR Rockpalast – they come up with a fascinating new studio album with MIG Music. “Indian Camel” will be released May 26, 2017, and a follow-up album is already nearly finished.
Contract signing with MIG took place in Cologne, at the Red Lounge Studios, at the kitchen table, absolutely proper, in the midst of creative chaos – and where the album received its final form. From left to right: Detlef Wiederhöft, Peter Bursch und Michael Dommers.
The next possibility to see BRÖSELMASCHINE live is on March 26 in Duisburg – the “krautrockers” will be playing the final concert of the cultural festival “Duisburger Akzente” in the Ruhr district.
With a vast discography and a reputation of being an extraordinary live act gained in more than 400 live shows, Swedish root rock band Siena Root is releasing their seventh album – due to production-related reasons – now on May 26, 2017, with Hänsel & Gretel/MIG Music.
The cover artwork of “A Dream of Lasting Peace” was designed by Sofia Sagerberg, Patrik Kindwall and Siena Root.
The band continued their passionate quest for analog sounds. With a superb result: The new album shines with heavy drum grooves, solid bass riffs, screaming guitar/organ dogfights and powerhouse vocals.
MIG Music celebrates this years Record Store Day with a true live treat. The musicologists have found a rare live recording by COMMANDER CODY BAND. This precious piece will only be available on April 22. The title of the album: “Claiming New Territories – Live at the Aladin 1980″. There are only 1.000 units of this limited 180g vinyl edition available worldwide.
George Frayne, his longtime companion Bill Kirchen (a Lost Planet Airman) and the excellent leveled crew overwhelmed the audience almost immediately with their strong headed mix of Country, Rock’n’roll, Western Swing and Rockabilly. The astonishing, sparkling live atmosphere with a real party character brings up-tempo fun and good mood!
Thanks to the boys at Radio Bremen, who decided 37 years ago to record this historical moment in excellent audio quality for us (or you, if you’ll get a copy).
