05.12.2011:     FUZZ MANTA's "Vortex Memplex" out now!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This has been a busy year for Copenhagen based Heavy Hippie Hard Rockers FUZZ MANTA. Supporting their new album "Opus II" (LP / CD) which was released in March the band has toured Germany twice in 2011 followed by a Danish tour in late spring 2011. Returning from the tours FUZZ MANTA entered the recording studio to record their third album. Signed by German label Kozmik Artifactz the band issued the new album "Vortex Memplex" (LP / CD) last week -- mere nine months after the release of the excellently received second album "Opus II" (compare album reviews by Soda Shop, The Obelisk and Doommantia)! "Vortex Memplex" appears as extremly limited LP-release in a variety of vinyl-colours and you are well advised to secure a copy now! Meanwhile the quartet's fourth tour this year is underway! Check out the album and tour trailer here!

28.11.2011:     Thank you for coming out to see the shows!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The MM-year climaxed this month with two concert tours of BABY WOODROSE and SIENA ROOT through Germany. We are delighted about two very successful tours because both bands played to near-sold out, resepectively sold out houses, e.g. in Leipzig, Stuttgart, Berlin, Nürnberg, Jena, Würzburg and Solingen. We feel particularly happy about the excellent reception of the DUSTOWNfestival which took place 18./19. November in Berlin and which featured SIENA ROOT, BABY WOODROSE, OKTA LOGUE and THE FLYING EYES among many other great bands. We'd like to express a thousand thanks to promoter DUSTOWN as well as to the colleagues at Trip In Time and Sound Of Liberation, to the clubs, all the musicians and crew members. Last but not least a lot of thanks goes out to YOU, the audience, without whom real and authentic music would not be possible. See you at the next shows and of course at DUSTOWNfestival 2012!

02.11.2011:     New band in roster: REVEREND SHINE SNAKE OIL CO.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is a new band in our roster that thoroughly blows our minds: REVEREND SHINE SNAKE OIL CO.'s concerts resemble both a life-affirming church mass and a sweaty 'n' sexy Voodo-Blues-Celebration. The Copenhagen based band which centers around New York-raised singer Claudius Pratt fuses timeless American traditions such as Blues, Gospel, Jazz, Folk, Swing and Minstrel Shows reducing them to the essential core of Blues and Rock 'n' Roll: Sex, soul and magic! Words however fail to describe the live experience so be advised to check out the live videos below and let your fantasy do the rest! The band will tour Germany in April 2012 -- the first tour dates have been announced, more dates will follow soon!

26.10.2011:     BABY WOODROSE reissue "Loves Comes Down"
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This week saw the reissue of BABY WOODROSE's "Love Comes Down". For many people "Love Comes Down" is considered the “lost” BABY WOODROSE album. It was originally released in 2006 and followed the band's succesful 2004 break-through effort "Money For Soul". At the time "Love Comes Down" was only released in Scandinavia and not many people outside the Nordic contries ever got the chance to hear it as the orgininal release soon fetched steep prices among collectors. Now the album is being made available again as LP/CD through Bad Afro Records! The LP edition is limited and includes a bonus 7". There will also be a special tour-edition which will only be sold at the upcoming German concerts. Check out this great interview with Lorenzo Woodrose on Cosmic Lava in which he reflects about the album and its rerelease!

18.09.2011:     Welcome OKTA LOGUE to the roster
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are pleased to welcome OKTA LOGUE from Darmstadt (GER) to our roster! The psychedelic Indie Rock quartet will release their third album on German quality label Hazelwood Vinyl Plastics in spring 2012. Already on 19.11.2011 OKTA LOGUE will perform at the DUSTOWNfestival in Berlin (together with BABY WOODROSE) filling in for WRONG SIDE OF VEGAS who sadly had to cancel. A proper tour will follow in spring 2012. Meanwhile you can watch a beautiful live video shot at Komsomodrom Heidelberg last month at the first show we booked for the band.

24.08.2011:     SIENA ROOT's "A New Day Dawning" rereleased
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SIENA ROOT´s 2004 classic debut album "A new day dawning" that featured the Mk1 line-up with Oskar Lundström behind the mic is being rereleased on vinyl! This double vinyl version features slightly extended versions of some songs. It is housed in a matte finish gatefold filled with extra heavy 180g vinyls. The original release received nothing but rave reviews and critical acclaim from all across the globe! Originally issued on Berlin's Nasoni Records the label promoted the initial release as follows:

"Limited vinyl edition of the first full length album by this outstanding band from Sweden. They combine the best moments of Deep Purple, Led Zep, Blind Faith to a very exiting and unique blend of sweet early-70's rock with a bluesy touch and some prog/ psychedelic patches. Heavy organ, strong bass, guitar riffing, jazzy drumming and very charismatic vocals fuse into an unmistakable integrity and honesty. This album will be a sought after classic very soon. So buy tomorrow's pebbles today!"

SIENA ROOT fans have more reasons to rejoice though: This fall will see the release of the first live album in the band's career. The double live disc entitled "Root Jam" will be out November 16, 2011 on CD / 2LP via Transubstans and Clear Spot. The album release will be accompanied by a comprehensive promotion campaign as well as a tour of Germany, Austria and Denmark the same month.

You can order "A new day dawning" directly from the band's newly founded Root Rock Records Shop!

12.08.2011:     HIGHWAY CHILD disbands
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shocked and deeply saddened we must announce that HIGHWAY CHILD have disbanded due to internal problems. All future concerts including the four shows in Germany in October 2011 are therefore canceled. Those who witnessed the breathtaking concerts the band has played this spring and which saw the quartet from Copenhagen acting with instinctiv sureness will be surely taken by surprise by these devestating news. More than any other band with whom we have worked so far HIGHWAY CHILD displayed a perfect dynamic and chemistry within the group -- certainly one of the secrets behind their class and success. Having released three timeless albums ("On the old king's road" 2008, "Sanctuary come" 2009 und "Highway Child" 2011) and offering a live performance few other bands coud match it was justified to call HIGHWAY CHILD the best and most promising Danish rock band. What a waste to lose them now! We now hope that a readily mixed but still unreleased live album which was recorded live in the studio in the fall of 2009 will see the light of day soon in order to bear witness of this brilliant live band. We have always considered ourselves lucky to represent HIGHWAY CHILD and we were always proud to work with this most amazing band with whom we have shared many unforgettable moments since 2009. Thank you and good-bye HIGHWAY CHILD -- roll another number for the road...



You can leave a message on the band's Facebook-page to share this moment with other fans...
