    [#] Happy new year! I came back from a real holiday, no concerts, just travels + inspirations. I’ve been in a bilingual country where I speak both languages, that now I love so much!! Oakland, watch out, I guess I love Montreal more than you…

    [#] The album I’ve realized with Fausto Maijstral (me + Will Gresson duo) is coming out on Jan 27 from La Station Radar. It’s going to be a lot of drone, some more folkish song (praise to SOOA) and a very very Can song. We recorded in summer 2012 by Felix Florian Toedloff and then has been master by Brian Pyle. We are very excited about that!! It’s going to be a limited edition of 250 copies, with the cover artwork of Lara Schilling, band photo from Tanya Mar and a poster inside. In the meantime, you can listen to one song on LSR soundcloud page

    [#] Next show with my girl band Brabrabra is going to be on Thu 16 Jan in Schokoladen, we will share the stage with a very cool girl band from Berlin called The Anna Thompsons. In the meantime, all BBB tapes get sold out in a couple of weeks, so the mighty Kitchen Leg rec made a new reprint of 60 tapes, last ones, so if you want one, better hurry up! 

    [#] Tune on the radio on Jan 26 at 18 (on microwave.fm) because there will be a mixtape made by me…I was invited to do one for Zooecho records, so I happily did one where I’ve throw, among the others, Il gruppo di improvvisazione nuova consonanza, my labelmates Fabio Orsi & Mamuthones, my own hero Concern, Fausto Maijstral and my sweet half! 

    [#] Coming next: next cassette release, shows, plans, recordings with Sacco e Vanzetti, a new band called The Roman Catholics, new flaming release with Kitchen Leg records, Occultofest 2014 and much much more!

     

  2. Forthcoming single from the imminent debut cassette from Brabrabra.

    Brabrabra are a mysterious girl band based in Berlin. They play so-called universal pop while being proudly bespectacled.

    [#] My next show will be in Italy, Rock Valley Fest, Santa Maria della Versa (PV), on Fri 19-07. I´ll play the after show I guess that means late…but, you should not miss the rest, the program is very nice, the wine delicious, the food great and you can see the most beautiful hills of the world. Yep, this is were I comes from! I´ll have a bunch of my vinyl with me, if you want to buy some ;-)

    [#] But you can also order my debut album “Nar” from Boring Machines…it is worth to have if you´re not convinced, read here ;-) !

    [#] I will have the joy to share a side of a tape of Felicia Atkisons and mine release for Idiosyncratic Records! More info soon. 

    [#] Good good news for my band Fausto Maijstral: our debut album, recorded just some months ago with Felix-Florian Toedloff, will be released on vinyl in October by the great French label La Station Radar. We are very very excited! 

    [#] Fausto Maijstral will perform this Thu 11-07 at Brunnen70! Don´t miss it, is a very early show (like 20.30ish). Address is Brunnen70, ahahah, close to U8 Voltastrasse. 

    [#] And, my girl band Brabrabra has just finish to record their 9 tracks pop milestone (always with Felix Florian Toedloff, now in his pop disguise), that will turn into the very first tape of Andrew´s and mine record label (still no name, we are undecided!). Next concert so far will be at Torstrasse Festival, on the stage of Network Awesome.

    All tracks are played by DuChamp and recorded and mixed by Diego Ferri. Brian Pyle (Ensemble Economique, Starving Weirdos) sung in “A Worship” and also did the mastering.
