As a small taster for the upcoming Rockpalast by RICHARD THOMPSON BAND. The song is taken from their Midem performance in Cannes in 1984. The 3CD/2DVD bundle “Richard Thompson Band – Live At Rockpalast” will be in stores October 27, 2017. more
Fantastic topics are trending these days. MIG Music as well is getting a colourful and lush sci-fi fantasy adventure off to a start; the concept album entitled “Welcome To Wonderworld” by HEAVEN’S SAPPHIRE (street date Dec. 1, 2017).
The masterminds behind the project are Sven Bergmann and Oliver Bartkowski who present their first album collaboration with own compositions. The music is a fine synthesis from rock and pop with classical and jazzy elements while the dramatic mixture of vocal and instrumental passages is perfectly supporting the narrative.
The main focus is on the planet Wonderworld far beyond the solar system. Unknown plants, huge flying animals and strange creatures live side by side with humanoid inhabitants on this peaceful biotope twice the size of earth. They successfully trade in their own flower and plant creations as their blossoms contain a magical dust that rejuvenates the body short-term. However, they suffer from unfriendly climate conditions of extreme heat and cold. More
With our new Rockpalast release we delve into the realm of folk rock: RICHARD THOMPSON, top-class guitarist and songwriter extraordinaire, awarded and honoured many times, defined the English version of the term folk rock with FAIRPORT CONVENTION before he went on a solo path. Quite a few of his songs like “Down Where The Drunkards Roll” or “1952 Vincent Black Lightning” are regarded as classics by now and have been interpreted by a number of artists of a variety of genres.
Twice the WDR recorded one of his shows, and it is odd that no further invitations occurred. On the 10th of December in 1983, RICHARD THOMPSON and his companions delivered a concert longer than one and a half hour for the Rockpalast in Hamburg which everyone obviously relished. Only six weeks later, the WDR recorded another concert on occasion of the MIDEM. The difference between Hamburg and Cannes was noticeable: A considerable spacious stage and the audience in plush armchairs but with an identical set list minus the encores. Also, the band was only nearly the same. The 2DVD/3CD digipak will be out now on October 27, 2017. More
VANILLA FUDGE celebrate their 50th anniversary in style – with another musical rock monument: the album „Live At Sweden Rock 2016“ (to be released October 27, 2017). What began in April 1967 in the Ultrasonic Studios in Hempstead/ N.Y., does still possess the same charisma a good 50 years later in the rather quiet Swedish town of Norje near Sölvesborg in front of more than 35,000 enthusiastic fans: heavy psychedelic slightly progressive rock blended with classic citations and elements.
With temporal and musically excessive cover versions which the band left their distinctive mark on (a heavy blues soaked steady rhythm), VANILLA FUDGE not only entered the international charts at that time. Their versions of the Tamla Motown classic “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” (Supremes) or Junior Walker’s “Shotgun” as well as the FUDGE’s version of McCartney’s “Eleanor Rigby” electrified a whole generation of musicians and fans alike.
Patricia Vonne is a real multi-talent. She writes songs, sings, dances, acts and draws – and that in such a great way that she has already won several prizes. Recently, at the International Film Festival Madrid, her music video “Huerta de San Vicente” won the Best Animation award. That is the second time for this song! In 2009 the song featured on Vonne’s album “Firebird” and her Spanish compilation album “Viva Bandolera”, won the “Grand Prize” winner in the Latin category for the John Lennon Songwriting contest. In the song, Patricia Vonne pays homage to the Spanish poet Federico García Lorca.
Of course, the singer whose grandmother hails from Spain is happy about the win, “I feel deeply grateful and honored to be recognized with this prestigious award.” The fine stop motion animation was inspired by Patricia’s visit to Huerta de San Vicente in Granada, Spain, García Lorca’s former summer residence where he wrote many of his works.
Patricia Vonne has returned from her extensive European tour now and is in the studio to record her new studio album. More
“Blood, sweat and tears, but our album is finally done.” – Wucan, July 2017
With the release of their debut album in autumn 2015, WUCAN from Dresden crossed the magic threshold between an insider’s tip to a celebrated newcomer. “Sow The Wind” is an energetic heavy rock statement which despite all its directness is not above kraut rock extravaganza. Afterward, they went on tour. With each of the nearly 120 shows in Germany and Europe, the number of fans increased continuously.
The force of nature that Wucan brings to the stage shall also be reflected on their second album which is being recorded at the Berlin Big Snuff Studios. “Reap The Storm” will redeem even more what the band promises live: a massive rock sound, clear and organic at the same time, music for modern hippies and those who wish to become one.
