THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN - 50 Years in the Service of Hell

THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN - 50 Jahre im Dienste der Hölle

2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the release of the album "The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown". The "Fire" contained on it alone sold a million times as a single. The eccentric frontman's band couldn't follow this success, which is why The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown were quickly hailed as a one-hit wonder. The influence that Brown's appearance, voice and rock theatre had on prog, shock rock and heavy metal is often overlooked.

Genesis

GENESIS - For Absent Friends

On the back of Genesis' first live album was this little picture of a bold looking man. Below the lines: "This album is dedicated to Richard Macphail who left April, 1973" Hardly any fan knew who it was at that time. Many believed that this man had died. Far from it, Richard Macphail, close friend and tour manager of the early Genesis, is among us. At 68 he has now written down his memories in "My book of Genesis". "Even so people know I'm still alive."

PAUL MCCARTNEY - Inpatient stay

Paul McCartney

PAUL MCCARTNEY - Stationärer Aufenthalt

Paul McCartney brought a lot with him from his long life journey. With full pockets, he gets on the train at the "Egypt Station" and looks back with relish. A Beatle who has long been more than a former member of a legend knows how to enjoy life to the full. This quality can be heard on the seventeenth solo album of the famous Englishman.

YES FEATURING ARW - The Career After the Career

YES featuring ARW Yes

YES FEATURING ARW - Die Karriere nach der Karriere

A first studio product of them is yet to come. But as a live act, the Yes formation around Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman has been convincing all along since 2016. The recording "Live At The Apollo" now documents for the first time the stage qualities of the Yes fission product. It raises the question of the true guardians of the rich heritage of progressive rock pioneers.

XTC

XTC - Die Zauberer aus Swindon

The British quartet XTC around the songwriter team Andy Partridge and Colin Moulding is still a legend twenty years after their last album - at least among initiates. The group's sound is unique: melodiousness meets experimental sounds, sixties nostalgia meets new wave aesthetics. And each of their records offers its own unique approach to their sound universe. But XTC also stand for an unorthodox band history, determined by strange voltes.

Heart front woman ANN WILSON pays homage to deceased rock and pop greats on "Immortal

Ann Wilson Heart

Heart-Frontfrau ANN WILSON huldigt auf „Immortal“ verstorbenen Rock- und Popgrößen

A cover album by Ann Wilson (68), completely without Led Zeppelin songs. This is surprising at first glance, and that is why it is worth asking for. We also want to know why she recorded a cover album again. After all, 2007 saw the release of "Hope & Glory" - the "Immigrant Song", of course - a complete work with cover versions. And we need to shed some light on the rumor jungle around Heart.

eclipsed: An album with cover versions of you, and there's no Led Zeppelin song on it. That's surprising!

MARC RIBOT revives the art of the protest song

Marc Ribot Ceramic Dog

MARC RIBOT erweckt die Kunst des Protestsongs zu neuem Leben

The US guitarist Marc Ribot loves provocation. On his new albums "YRU Still Here" with his band Ceramic Dog and "Songs Of Resistance 1942-2018" with an illustrious crowd of guests he directed his anger against political grievances in the USA. Marc Ribot is an edgy guy. At the end of the eighties he played in the jazz bands The Lounge Lizards and Jazz Passengers and lent his woodcutter guitar playing to Tom Waits and Elvis Costello. His clash of punk and jazz resembled crashes without survivors. Patience is not one of his virtues. None of his own bands have lasted for more than two albums.

Sherpa Underground

SHERPA - Kim und die Bombe

The rugged landscapes of Abruzzo with its national parks and nature reserves are the home of the Italian psychedelic band Sherpa, which, after the cheerful, almost cheerful debut "Tanzlinde" (2016), now follows the dark successor "Tigris & Euphrates". Singer and guitarist Matteo Dossena explains the reasons for the change of mood and the concept behind the new work.

eclipsed: The new album "Tigris & Euphrates" is much darker than its predecessor "Tanzlinde". What made you do it?
