KING CRIMSON - In the steady river

King Crimson

KING CRIMSON - Im steten Fluss

Hardly any band reinvents itself with such consistency as King Crimson. Over the last five decades, band monarch Robert Fripp has managed to keep his constantly changing group of musicians on a common goal and thus keep the English rock institution relevant. The live formation with three drummers, at first sceptically eyed, celebrates great success, and so King Crimson go on their longest tour in 15 years in 2018.

The Decemberists

Recycling -THE DECEMBERISTS

How time flies. It's been four years since the Decemberists enchanted their fans with "What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World". But some songs of the last album last so long that it didn't feel that long at all, especially since the waiting time was shortened very profoundly with the EP "Flora Songs" and the side project "Offa Rex". On their new CD, the band from Portland, Oregon, is now completely repositioning themselves. Not personnel, but sound.

Half a century after the band was founded: Andy Scott goes on a birthday tour with SWEET

Sweet

Ein halbes Jahrhundert nach der Bandgründung: Andy Scott geht mit SWEET auf Geburtstagstour – und denkt gar nicht ans Aufhören

Andy Scott gave The Sweet for a maximum of ten years when he joined the band in 1970 - now the guitarist is going on an anniversary tour on the occasion of the band's foundation 50 years ago. The 68-year-old, who once led the formation from bubblegum pop to glam rock and hard rock, would have liked to have played birthday concerts together with bassist Steve Priest, who is mainly on tour in the USA with a group of the same name. But that won't happen, as Scott regrets in an interview with eclipsed.

The MANIC STREET PREACHERS again focus more on melodies, but are as belligerent as ever

26. April 2018

Manic Street Preachers

Die MANIC STREET PREACHERS setzen wieder mehr auf Melodien, geben sich aber kampfeslustig wie eh und je

"It's pretty loud here," drummer Sean Moore apologizes right at the start of the call. The band's new studio is under construction. In fact, it hammers and drills in the background. In view of the unwritten law of the Manic Street Preachers to always allow a more conventional album to be followed by an experimental one, however, the question literally lies in the air as to whether the background noise might not also be an inspiration for the next work. "Why not?" Moore laughs back. "In the '80s I heard a lot of Einstürzende Neubauten, I really loved them.

On the path of virtue with VVLVA

"A real retro rock surprise!" The verdict of eclipsed author Walter Sehrer on Vvlva is clear. The young Aschaffenburg quintet with the explicit band name is inspired similar to Siena Root by the hard rock of the early seventies, when the Hammond sang with Deep Purple and Uriah Heep and a heavy guitar in duet. A strong pinch of psychedelic was added to the spice mix on the debut album "Path Of Virtue". In addition to the magazine interview, we offer an exclusive online interview with singer Tobias Ritter.
