  • Auster Boys team up with Moet for a new album

  • The Mind Sweepers reach record streaming levels on Spotify
  • Forthcoming gigs
  • In the pipeline
  • Four Candles album launch captured live

AUSTER BOYS MEET MOET

July 6th sees the release of a first collaboration between the Auster Boys and Moet. Titled “Unnatural Appetites” this seven-track collection contains some fantastic and fascinating new music.   Whilst Bob Auster South works on new pieces of text Moet has been co-opted to work within the Auster catchment area. The music is deliberately more brutal and scary than the usual Auster offerings. Descriptions of the tracks are as follows
  • HMK – aka the Heavy Metal Kid. You’ve seen him at gigs, he a flaneur of rock and roll, a wandering immortal of the music scene.
  • Ghosts – not the Albert Ayler tune but delivered in the same spirit. “What Am I Going To Find At The End of The Rainbow…..?”… a psychogeographical journey,
  • Spit – this has since morphed into a Four Candles song. When the establishment becomes the enemy,
  • Iceland – No falling down drunk in the Cafe Iol. Tales from the edge of the world. Austers like Travelogues very much
  • Monster – deep into the belly of the beast
  • Quit – The continuing story of Ian vs The Disease
  • The Species – Sci-fi in a Phillip K Dick style. Paranoia and the dark arts.
Bob Auster North – Sound Design and Production
Moet – Vocals & Lyrics
Bob Auster South – Conceptual Continuity
Adopting a brutalist electronica approach the Austers combine perfectly with Moet’s rhetorical polemic
You can preview opening track “HMK” here

German Shepherd Newsletter #5 – Catching a Colourful Disease

Hello and welcome to another edition of the German Shepherd Newsletter…

This week

– Moff and Moet are back as The Colourful Disease
– Forthcoming Gigs
– What’s in the pipeline

CATCHING A COLOURFUL DISEASE

Moff Skellington and Ian “Moet” Moss have worked together for over three years now with releases as

Ion-Morph & Moff Skellington – Boomerangs/Body Bad
Moss Skellington – The Wickedest Man In The World
Moss Skellington – The Lump

…as well a series of live events branded as “Smoked Ears Will Not Grow Back”.

Check out the previous releases on our Bandcamp Page.

They have decided to work together under a new name The Colourful Disease.

We release a new five-track EP from the duo on June 29th called “Economics”.

Blending Moff’s unique musical stylings and Moet’s trade-mark polemic with subjects varying between Kiplingesque anecdotes, Brexit, and a reprise of previous track “The Lump” in the form of a “Carbuncle” the pair explore hitherto unfound musical nooks and crannies.

Writing about the album Moss, tongue in cheek, says:

The Colourful Disease, a sexy trans-Pennine boy band , a duo in the manner of Wham with hip shakingly catchy tunes that sound like everything else , lyrics of total banality they are content to trade on their cute good looks and ability to strike glamorous poses they could be this year’s bright new things decorating the bedroom walls of the nation’s teens, superstardom surely awaits bad boy Moff and boy next door Ian.

Ian Moss – Voice and Words
Moff Skellington – Instruments and Music
Uncle Ian – Banjo on “Dance”

The Colourful Disease_Economics

With Cover Art by Moff Skellington this release is a Uterus Cottage Production

You can stream track 5 from the release “Dance” here:

Newsletter #4 – new music from Four Candles, new video from PrunX and gig news – 22nd June

Hello again and welcome to the German Shepherd Newsletter

This week

– Four Candles invite you to join their Spiritual Rapture
– Gig News
– New video from PrunX
– Manchester Meltdown
– What’s coming soon

Four Candles – Spiritual Rapture

Our release for 22nd June is a bit complicated – we are releasing the new album from Four Candles in CD format via our Bandcamp Page, however those who live in the digital world will get the album in three chunks of two track singles in June, July, and August. Heavily road tested during the bands’ January Manchester Meltdown appearances this new six-track album shows the band moving into new areas with surprising variations in style and content from their debut album “Killing The Image”. Recorded at 6dB studios in Salford the core band of Phil Peak – Drums, Jon Rowlinson – Bass, Mark Taylor – Guitar and Ian Moss – Vocals are joined by Ding on Piano and David Wilkinson on Saxophone.

The variety across the six-track collection is remarkable with the quartet drawing on their collective experience to create a fresh and approachable sound with the trademark Moss vocals providing a perfect counterpoint to the lush textures of Mark’s guitar and Phil and Jon’s tight rhythms.

SR Cover.jpg

Well regarded artist Andy Thorley has had a sneak preview of the album as says “Spiritual Rapture is a cracking little silver disc that is great from start to early finish. Not wanting to overstay it’s welcome at under 30 minutes, it’s a perfect bite-size morsel, hunt your own copy down soon.”

With his 40th year on stage now achieved Ian Moss will be extensively interviewed by Stephen Doyle on his Sonic Diary Show on Salford City Radio at 9pm on 13th June. The show which will have an extended Mixcloud version will contain many examples of Ian’s work with bands including Hamsters, The Stepbrothers, Sicknurse, Kill Pretty and of course Four Candles.

Newsletter #3 – New music from The Junta, Loop-aznavour and re-released Pearl Divers – 15th June

Welcome to another edition of the German Shepherd Records Newsletter.

This week:

  • A new single from The Junta
  • A new EP from Loop-aznavour
  • The re-release of Pearl Divers debut EP
  • Gigs where you can see German Shepherd Artists
  • A sneak preview of forthcoming releases

 

THE JUNTA TAKES “ALL ROADS”

Keyboard guru and electro-head The Junta is back with a new single, another track from his forthcoming album “Network”. This release is the first one where The Junta adds his vocal chords to the rack of instruments at his command. Combining a dream pop vibe with a rhythmic electronic backing this summer anthem should have people off their deckchairs and onto the dance floor. Accompanied by a travelogue video of The Junta prowling around the Northern Quarter in Manchester and taking in some of his favourite music venues the new song “All Roads” shows yet another side of his musical output.

Watch the video at The Junta’s website.

 All Roads

LOOP VS CASIOS

It has been a long time since we had a solo release from Loop-aznavour as he has been rather busy with his work with Adventures of Salvador. We were rightly pleased when he approached up with a new set of tunes called “When Casios Ruled The Earth”. Loop’s one man shows are known for their unique brand of punk electronica with added theremin and all that is to the fore with four brand new songs which touch on a range of bizarre/unique subjects and a delivered with Loop’s trademark malevolence with a smile.

 Here’s a taster with lead track “She Is My Automaton”

Newsletter # 2 – New Keltrix Album, Manchester Meltdown Set Times. Bouquet of Dead Crows mini-tour, Gigs, and forthcoming releases

Hello and welcome to another edition of the German Shepherd Newsletter….

This week ….

KELTRIX – NAKED

Keltrix Naked sleeve front-page-001

We are pleased to announce the release of a brand new album from Cambridge based folk/electro act Keltrix. However, for this album, the electro part of the sound has been put aside to reveal the duo’s folk roots. Taking the best of the previous albums and adding two new tracks from the next album “Herstory” Sharon and Keri have stripped things back to just voice, guitar and violin to create a stunning collection of songs. Recorded at Sharon Sullivans home studio this is the Keltrix sound stripped bare – hence the album’s title “Naked”

Released digitally on June 8th via Bandcamp, Spotify, ITunes, Apple Music and many more digital outlets this is a chance to hear Keltrix as you have never heard them before. In addition, we are making available via our Bandcamp Merch Page a limited edition CD of the album.

Keri (singer/songwriter) and Sharon (violinist/producer) first met when performing with Dj’s and Live PA’s at dance music club nights back in the late 90’s. It wasn’t until several years later, however, that Keri formed the original Keltrix, an alt/folk/rock band that Sharon soon joined.  After several years, two albums and a certain amount of success, a continuing love of 90’s rave and trip-hop, along with the desire to progress musically, meant it was time to change direction. The 2015 double album Between Storms (band)/Beyond Storms (electro) was the turning point and Keltrix has been a live electro act ever since. Last years 4th album “Bobby Says” was a critical success.

Naked is a release which bridges the previous album “Bobby Says” and the planned new one “Herstory”. It is an acoustic album in a step away from the electronic direction Keltrix have followed of late. It contains two brand new tracks, both of which will be on the next album, albeit in a slightly different form. The rest of the selections are Keri and Sharon’s favourites from previous albums – the greatest hits of Keltrix. After ten years of constant recording and gigging Keltrix are taking a breather with a quieter year concentrating on the development and recording of the next album.

The album will be launched at the Corner House in Cambridge on 15th June – Featuring live acoustic music with special guests Heather McVey and Emily Fraser, and glamorous assistance and spanking sets from DJ Cabbage. Merch will be on sale including limited edition ‘Naked’ Albums plus T-Shirts & Vests. It’s £5 entry.  Doors 8.30pm Live music from 9pm.

You can hear an interview with Keri and Sharon below

  • Sharon Sullivan – String Arrangements, Violin, Backing Vocals

RECENT REVIEWS OF KELTRIX

The  “Bobby Says” album succeeds magnificently in its attempts to pull together several strands and in doing so create a sound that, if not unique is certainly rare, engaging and very rewarding.- Dave Hammond, Sounds

In a show of brilliant variety – and one of the most striking acts I have seen for a long time – Keltrix were last up on the bill. They are an award-winning trio infusing electro folk with acoustic instrumentation, almost grungy, gutsy vocals and spiralling soundscapes. This is folk music with a fiery, flighty sense to it, and I was quickly entranced. – Emliy Oldfield, Louder Than War

Naked 10
