DAVID PAICH - Rennpferd auf Siegeskurs

In recent years, Toto keyboardist David Paich has been plagued by health problems from time to time. In the interview with eclipsed, however, there is no sign of this: The 68-year-old appears at midday with a baseball cap, but without the obligatory sunglasses for the interview and seems very tidy. He covers a wide range of topics, from his solo debut "Forgotten Toys" to his childhood, when his father, the arranger Marty Paich, took him to the large recording studios of Los Angeles - an experience that was formative for the rest of his life

BUBBLEMATH - Von Quarks und Quasaren

In terms of ambition, BUBBLEMATH from Minneapolis always set the bar enormously high - so also with "Turf Ascension", their third album in 20 years. The progging is extremely complex, and the lyrics by keyboardist Kai Esbensen are conceived like short stories or philosophical essays. In an interview with eclipsed, the 51-year-old, who heads the quality assurance department of a software company, talks in detail about the creation of the album and the highly unusual themes of the songs.

SPACE INVADERS - Magic of the Moment

SPACE INVADERS - Magie des Moments

During the pandemic, Space Invaders also had no choice but to record a new album in the studio. The psych-space rockers are primarily known for their live shows and live albums. So the new "Garden Of The Wizard" is already the fifth album of the band, but only the second pure studio album. And yet it exudes the trippy charm of a concert - as usual with sprawling long tracks.
