We are finally in the process of updating our website! You will have noticed the new logo on the latest CDs already, and now finally the web page gets a long overdue new design. The new pages will be a lot more user friendly, and we hope to be able to present them to you this summer. On the music front, we have some very exciting projects coming up this autumn/winter: we are finishing our Konstruktivists re-issue programme withe the re-release of "Persona Non Grata", continue our Sprung aus den Wolken programme with "Story of Electricity", and also bring you the second installment in the Renaldo & The Loaf re-issue series, "Songs for Swinging Larvae" - again, as a double CD with lots and lots of unheard material. Other exciting projects include the release of an album by Cabaret Voltaire's Stephen Mallinder with Hula's Ron Wright, an archive piece that has just resurfaced and that was never ever presented to the public. Both Mal and Ron have created their own 2013 versions of the track as a bonus, so watch out for this most exciting CD later this year. Klanggalerie will also be present at this year's Tower Transmissions Festival in Dresden and the Wroclaw Industrial Festival in Poland, with Walter DJ-ing in Dresden alongside Wiktor Skok.
Enjoy the summer and don't forget we have amazing albums just out, including Section 25's Eigengrau and Eric Random's Time-Splice - check out the available section in our catalogue.
The new year is here and we are starting with one of our most important releases ever! January brings you the (never before available on CD) re-issue of Renaldo & The Loaf‘s (play) Struvé and Sneff album! The double CD package also inlcudes the previously unreleased only live concert of the band at Bali Hai. Details on the album page! The first live gig organized by us in 2013 is the first ever gig by Mushroom‘s Patience and The Tractor Train Orchestra featuring Dither Craf, Vinz Aquarian and guest Echo Eerie of Collapsing New People. Two months later, we will bring Llody James aka Naevus for a solo show to the same venue, Xi Bar. February brings the release of the debut album of new synth pop supergroup Oppenheimer MK II featuring Andy Oppenheimer on vocals and Mahk Rumbae on electronics. Andy used to sing in Oppenheimer Analysis, Mahk is in UK Industrial pioneers Konstruktivists. Klanggalerie & Syntactic will also celebrate their 20th anniversary towards the end of the year. Watch out for a very special event somewhere.
It has been a very productive and successful year for Klanggalerie. We're finishing off 2012 with Chris Connelly's new album "Day of Knowledge" and Blackhouse's definite edtion of "Holy War". As usual, we have participated in Wroclaw's Industrial Festival, and have organized a long list of events in Vienna, the highlight being the Doppelvision festival featuring Stephen Mallinder of Cabaret Voltaire. The live season will kick off in 2013 with the first gig of the new extended Mushroom's Patience line-up including Vinz Aquarian of Ballo delle Castagne. Plans for next year's releases include: "Struve and Sneff" by Renaldo & The Loaf in a special 2CD edition, a re-issue of Job Karma's debut album in an extended version, the first album by Oppenheimer MK II consisting of Andy Oppenheimer (formerly of Oppenheimer Analysis) and Mark Crumby (Konstruktivists), a remix album for Factory legend Section 25 and two new albums by Mushroom's Patience - one of them with an icredible list of guest singers. The most important change on our web site was the introduction of a Paypal button and a shoppig cart - so buying from us is now much easier than in the past. Klanggalerie wishes you a happy festive season and all the best for 2013 (if we all survive the 21st of December).
