Since an increasing part of victimy people all over the world are awakening again to their nationalist dreams and devoting themselves to their fear, projecting their pathetic beings and self hatred onto other people it’s even more important to create stuff that doesn’t smell like moldy humanity and at least try to get the fuck over yourself.
So here’s a little update about some of my attempts.
The Philip Zoubek Trio releases it’s first album „Outside“ on WhyPlayJazz in Oktober.
Jonas Engel’s OWN YOUR BONES recorded a new album in the lovely La Buissonne Studio in August. It’ll probably take ages till it get’s released so here’s an entertaining video.
Fabian Arends and me got to record some of our music in the Deutschlandfunk with Sebastian Gille, Kasper Tranberg, Philip Zoubek, Simon Nabatov and some special guests!
There will be another DLF recording date with Jacob Anderskov, Tranberg and Gille in November. Stay tuned!
The MAREK JOHNSON EP „Stay Low“ will be released on Tangible Music in the kind of near future.
This is a short album that was just made by two old friends. Human Music.
Hello, some new stuff! 1. OWN YOUR BONES has a new record out on KLAENG records. It's great fun, people, energy and we had a nice few gigs. There will be more. 2. My Band MAREK JOHNSON will release some music and stuff to watch soon. 3. Together with my friend Fabian Arends we will have our new band FOSTERCHILD with the great Jacob Anderskov, Kasper Tranberg and Sebastian Gille in the Loft Cologne this Saturday and will record a new CD in the Deutschlandfunk Cologne in June. nice. 4. A little clip from an electric version of the PHILIP ZOUBEK TRIO. I love this band.
Since looking at the screen can also be fun sometimes, here are two live videos. Maybe they will draw ones attention for more than ten seconds. Pollon from Winterjazz 10 days ago and a gig from last year's Copenhagen Jazz Festival with Jacob Anderskov, Kasper Tranberg and Fabian Arends.
