PS: It’s not that long since i came back from Sylt and i do already check where to go next. Maybe the Canary Islands. I just want some place by the sea and wlan. Swimming, drinking, reading and playing poker in some nice environment – most tempting idea at the very moment. Hope to get out of the country for at least a week in november.
I‘m starting the day with vodka-o… kinda special day.
PPS: This record of LA ROUX is quite a treasure.

PPS: SERPENT THRONE just finished the recording session of their new album. Just catched a glimpse on the artwork – sweet as usual. Should get some of the songs soon. I expect it to top the previous material. LP will be out on modus again.
MILLS OF GOD will hit the studio early 2010. Had the change to listen to one of the new songs they did record during rehearsals. This time with VOCALS – amazing!

OLD CROW




The Battle Of Old Crow is out for i think 3 days now and we already sold all the limited versions with patch and in the process most of the Ride Satan Ride we had left as well. So, the response is great, even overwhelming and the best thing is Serpent Throne will hit the studio again in autumn!

july.

The Tour De France is on for almost 2 weeks now and to be honest i‘m still not really into it yet. Perhaps i‘m just a little jaded. Watched pretty much any of the classics and tours this year. But i‘m kinda getting into the groove (now). Cannonball Cavendish and his team are just amazing and i enjoy any final he reels in another victory. I‘ve never been and will never be a fan of a certain rider. I love cycling and the prestige races in particular.
Despite Menchovs parforce run (which one can even better evaluate after his performance during the first stages of the Grande Boucle) the giro was rather boring. Di Luca was fighting so hard to get Menchov in trouble, but overall it was a rather lame tour.
Armstrongs return and all the talk about it is so pathetic and just makes me yawn. The Pyrenees stages were a big disappointment, especially the one to Tarbes Pellizotti almost took down. With the Tourmalet 60km to the finish and only downhill from there it killed all the action. I hope for the alps and despite Astanas domination there‘re quite a few riders who can still stir up the GC.

Fave 3 recordings of June/July:

1. PIG DESTROYERPhantom Limb
2. BONGZILLAGateway
3. PEACHESI Feel Cream

The first two you‘d probably find in any top 10 of mine over the last 2 years. The songwriting for Phantom Limb is incredibly well done, every hook is just perfectly timed. There’s a concept behind every song and the recording as a whole. The thick rock relapse-like production/mastering works just fine here too. This aint a recording to listen to on the side. You really need to get yourself into it and listen to it from first to last (bonus song not included) in one go. Nearly perfect piece of music and definitely the peak of their oeuvre. Despite desperately waiting for new material i can hardly imagine how they wanna keep up with the standard of Phantom Limb.

Still feels great it was US who put Bongzillas absolutely amazing Gateway recording out on wax. Even if i might change my taste in music some day i‘ll always say it’s a brilliant record.

New RECORDING!

At the moment we‘re waiting for the master cd of the new recording by SERPENT THRONE called Battle Of The Old Crow. Modus Operandi Records will release this amazing piece of music on wax (again). I‘m super thrilled about this release. Just love SERPENT THRONES first output and gotta admit this one is even better! They evolved a lot, the songwriting is more complex and i‘d say they kinda grew up as musicians… feels like they‘re really into what they‘re doin‘ with this release. It’s definitely their best release to date and Modus Operandi will put it out on vinyl soon. There‘ll be another limited release (just as with the poster for the first LP), but you gotta be patient. It will take a little while til it’s out.

Been to Berlin for a few days and just listened to BONGZILLAS Gateway recording on my way back. You might remember Modus Operandi put this one out on wax and it was sold out soon after its release date. Now already kinda rare and hard to get. The reason i mention this one here is simple: Once again i realized that THIS IS THE SHIT! GATEWAY is by far BONGZILLAS best release and i‘d say the best release in that genre overall. WEEDEATER is a great band and their most recent record definitely dope, but there isn‘t a release that can compete with GATEWAY! This is really an outstanding release, just perfect and one of my top 5 records ever! I‘m still happy we put this out. Beside that it was kinda the kick-off for Modus Operandi Records in a new future.

Oh yeah, i‘m just flying skyy high!
