Modem Operandi


On 18. September comes the fourth longplayer of the Eastcoats Canadians called Modem Operandi. First time listening we were really suprised as the band did expand their repertoire in a very special and unique style. From Rock’n’Roll, that might fill arena, to acoustic sessions at the bar the Macs and Murphys integrate blues and experimental influences, that still have their scottish-Irish roots.Jason Wright at the bouzouki and Craig Harris on bass and mandoline left the band for private reasons. We welcome Calen Kinneyan (bouzouki and Fidel) and Dillan Tate on Bass.

Melodien sind sein Leben


With guitar, retro-future-eclectronics and his weakness for ‘dirty chansons’ Sedlmeir creats his own niche in the show business: the ‘Hard Schlager’! He deconstructs his vanity with poetry, demeanor and black humour and shines as he would have an engagement in Las Vegas at the times of 1970. His source is a bottomless pit: the duality of everything, the glamour of the dirty, the shabbiness of splendidity. 12 tracks which oscillate between pop, rock and chanson: melodies are his life!
