MIG to release PAUL YOUNG Live At Rockpalast soon
When Paul Young entered the stage of the Grugahalle in Essen with his band The Royal Family on 30 March 1985, he was at the height of his career and the most successful British pop star of his time. His album “No Parlez” had broken all sales records, the follow-up album “The Secret Of Association” was about to start at the time of his Rockpalast appearance. Paul Young, his Royal Family as well as his three great background singers Jimmy Chanders, George Chandler and Tony Jackson presented themselves in a top condition and delivered an absolute hit firework, from “Love Of The Common People”, “Broken Man”, “Everything Must Change” to “Whereever I Lay My Hat” everything is represented what the Paul Young fan heart desires. A message in the matter of soul.
MIG releases STARRY EYED & LAUGHING Live At Rockpalast
The Rockpalast was still in its infancy when the British band STARRY EYED & LAUGHING entered the stage of the Cologne WDR studio L on 24 February 1976. Only a handful of bands like the Streetwalkers, Man, Procol Harum, the Climax Bluesband or Alexis Korner had the honour to perform live in the Cologne studios and later to be broadcasted all over Germany on TV in front of the four Brits Tony Poole, Ross McGeeney, Ian Whitmore and Michael Wickford. STARRY EYED & LAUGHING started playing what is now commonly known as Americana in 1974 – a mixture of country, folk, blues and rock. The sound of SE&L was characterized by Pooles 12-string Rickenbacker, which immediately reminded of Roger McGuinn and the band was called the British answer to the American Byrds. And so it wasn’t surprising that with “Chimes Of Freedom”, “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere” and “Mr. Tambourine Man” there were three titles on the Rockpalast setlist that were also part of the standard program of the Byrds.
AGITATION FREE sign contract to rerelease their entire backcatalogue
Die deutschen Krautrock Pioniere der ersten Stunde haben nun ihren Gesamtkatalog in die Verantwortung von Mig gegeben. Die 3 bisher fehlenden Alben – Malesh, 2nd und River of Return gehören jetzt zusammen mit den bisher schon in der Agitation Free Box erschienen 3 Alben zu einem Gesamtpaket, das wir sowohl digital als auch physisch als Vinyl und als CD wieder veröffentlichen.
Agitation Free sind mit ihrem eigenständigen Sound, als reine Instrumentalband einer der wichtigsten Pfeiler der deutschen Antwort auf die übermächtige englische Rockinvasion der Sechziger und gehören neben Ash Ra Tempel, Klaus Schulze oder Tangerin Dream zu den herausragenden und Stilbildenden Vertretern des ” Krautrock “. Wir sind sehr glücklich nun den gesamten Katalog dieser großartigen Band, ähnlich wie bei Ash Ra Tempel oder Klaus Schulze zu verantworten. Wir gratulieren zum 50 jährigen Bandjubiläum.

BLACKBIRD & CROW from Donegal/Ireland announce signment with M.I.G.
Clubeo, a regular club night hosted by a bar with the same name, is run by CLANNAD’s Moya Brennan with help from others and was set up several years ago to provide a stage for, and to give new and emerging musicians from all over Ireland a chance to play their music and songs to a live audience. During the celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of Leo’s Tavern in Donegal a couple of these artists performed at the Marquee before acts like Hazel O’Connor or the legendary.Donovan entered the stage. All acts we have seen that night were superb, but without a doubt the duo of BLACKBIRD AND CROW stole the show with their fusion of blues, soul, irish folk and psychedelic rock and musically they were on a higher level than everybody else. M.I.G. is proud to have signed these talented and wonderful artists.
