The Darkening Scale CD "The Entomolgy of Sound" is now ready to order. It is the first in a series of DS re-issues. DS ist the solo project of David Janssen of Renaldo & The Loaf. Next up are the live album by Institution DOL, The Residents' Dot.Com and Rapoon's Un Flic. Looking forward to them all.
In other news, we have not been to the Etor Tenebrae de Profundis festival in Athens, as it turned out to be the worst organized festival of all time. All headliners pulled out, and what was left was mainly some neofolk that we weren't really interested in seeing. Just wish we hadn't hotel and flights all booked. Several earlier Klanggalerie CDs are now out of print: Naevus' Division of Labour, Nocturnal Emissions present The Pump, Charles Bobuck's Missing Soldiers, all Sprung aus den Wolken titels and a few more. Watch out for more release announcements coming soon. Enjoy the spring, if it has arrived yet.
Snakefinger's third album Manual Of Errors is out. As with the other titles, this has been beautifully remastered, and we hadded lots of bonus tracks. Later this month will see the start of the Darkening Scale re-issue series. David Janssen's solo project has previously only been available in digital download form and will finally see the attention it deserves. Not only a must have for Renaldo & The Loaf fans! Klanggalerie will be present at the Etor Tenebrae de Profundis festival, despite the fact that all headliners have cancelled and the line-up is now totally different to what was advertised before. Maybe see some of you there. April will bring Dot Com by The Residents - exteneded with 5 tracks from the Radio Thoreau series. This will be followed up by Ghost Machine by Chrome and Un Flic by Rapoon. Please note that the Sprung aus den Wolken titles are now all sold out.
We are deeply saddened today to learn of the death of our friend Steffen Schütze of Non Toxique Lost. We were going to meet up in Berlin this March, something we did once or twice regularly every year. It won't happen now. A terribly sad day.
