Iggy Pop

IGGY POP - „Die sollen sich alle verpissen!“

He's secured his pension. So Iggy Pop treats himself to an excursion into avant-garde and jazz filmes. His new album "Free" is an escape from the animal rocker, whom he has been giving since the end of the sixties as convincingly as no other. And at the same time it is a flawless "piss off!" towards its critics.

The friends from Philadelphia throw themselves the balls in a good mood, and so an entertaining conversation develops about their common music project, Jeff Buckley, friendship and the right timing.

eclipsed: When I heard that Brett was part of this project, I had expected Prog à la Echolyn. Instead there is something completely different to hear. What's the matter with you?

Die Musikkommune LORD’S FAMILY erfährt nach fast fünf Jahrzehnten eine späte Würdigung

The idea came from across the Atlantic: young women and men of all skin colors, musicians, students, pupils, apprentices and young workers, many with Christian backgrounds, looked for ways of life beyond the affluent society in the countryside - such hippie communities were motivated above all by the film "Easy Rider" and the Woodstock Festival.

Die Bremer Formation EYEVORY hat ihrem Album „Aurora“ einen besonderen Schliff verpasst

Almost three years have passed since the release of Eyevorys concept album "Inphantasia". An eventful and productive time for the progband from Bremen, as singer and bassist Jana Frank reports: "We have had a new drummer for one and a half years, this time a permanent one, which feels very good. Previously we had many changes, had to adjust again and again. Now the chair stands on four legs again." For one year the group has been working on new material. "About forty songs have been written. They were sifted out until the top ten were left for the album," Frank sums up.

NEW MODEL ARMY - Fantasy Island

A new album from New Model Army is always an event. The English band released a live recording in 2018, on which practically only the concert visitors can be heard. For the new studio work "From Here" the quintet retreated to the Norwegian island of Giske to arrange and record the songs in great seclusion. "Everything was allowed," bandleader Justin Sullivan tells us.
