We are back from our holidays, and busy working on new releases. As usual, summer doesn't stop us. The Chrome album Ghost Machine has just been delivered from the pressing plant and is ready to ship. Next up we have Charles Bobuck's tribute to the summer of love, 1967. Plus the long awaited re-issue of Nighthawks, the hauntingly beautiful theatre music album by Hula member John Avery. In autumn expect new releases by The Residents, Tabor Radosti, Thighpaulsandra, Konstruktivists and also Asmus Tietchens with whom we have just signed a contract for 3 releases. We are looking forward to working with Asmus again. In other news, The Residents will head for a European tour in the fall, and be sure to find Klang merchandise on the sales tables there. Unfortunately, this tour coincides with the Wroclaw Industrial Festival, so it looks like we will have to take a break from it this year.
Please note that the Klanggalerie office is closed from May 25 to June 18. All orders placed until May 23 will be shipped before the holidays. When placing orders during our vacation, please be aware that all items will be shipped after June 18.The latest TOOK release, Clank Clank Clank by Bobuck, is out and nearly sold out. Enjoy the early summer.
Available now is the new album by Northern English pioneer Rapoon. In contrast to Waiting By The River, Un Flic is a very Krautrock-influenced album that involves live drums and singing. Coming next week is Clank Clank Clank by Bobuck, former composer for The Residents. This collection of 9 demos for a 40th anniversary reworking of Meet The Residents is now available for pre-order. It is the first time Klanggalerie are releasing a Minimax CD. Limited to 300 copies only and already flying out the doors. From May 25th to June 17th the Klanggalerie office will be closed. After the holidays, we will be back with Ghost Machine, a phenomenal album by the legendary Chrome. This will be followed by John Avery's (Hula) soundtrack album Nighthawks. Please place all your orders until May 23rd if you want them shipped before the spring break.
