Jagd und Hund


„Jagd und Hund“ („Hunt And Dog“), the so called difficult third album, still shows punk roots but stronger influences of indie (rock), wave and post punk draw a more distinguished picture this time. Oscillating between hope and resignation the personal disaster meets the big catastrophe. More reflected and finally grown up, without getting boring. Darkness, sorrow and anger and the typical slice of insanity are still part of the unique Love A universe.
Twelve songs show all facets from rough to ruthless to melancholic, with a special focus on mankind’s silliness and bluntness. „Jagd und Hund“ succeeds in arriving without pausing.
With the help of Robert Whiteley, Liverpool located producer (Wombats, Hot Club De Paris, Voo), recordings mirror perfectly the band’s sound which is unique and catchy at the same time. Vinyl comes in gatefold cover and with download code.

The Noise (s/t)

Layout 1

The Noise’ debut album takes its musical influences from the over crowded and extremely loud streets of New York City. Although one hears influences of all the members’ past bands, this self tittled release carves a world of original, provocative and multicultural music best described as Post Punk, Noise, and cut throat hard Rock. The singer and front man is Arthur “Googy” drummer of The Misfits (Walk Among Us, Live Evil, 3 Hits from Hell). For most people “the real Misfits”. The Noise conjures up memories of many of their for fathers, like The Ramones The MC5, The Clash or Iggy Pop and Suicide.

Caribbean Nights

KOETER Caribbean Nights Cover Front 2400px RGB

We are proud to present 10 new songs in ca. 30 minutes. Lyrics are dealing in a smart and reflected but frank and vicoius way with silliness of mankind and stiffness of systems. The sound oscillates between „Deutschpunk“ without the standard cliches and indie sound with the biting wit. Two guitars performing harmonic arcs of meldies but still roaring, a pumping bass without being Disco, the drum set chattering and Michi’s cheeky way of singing make the song just perfect. Chutzpa wins, in lyrics too, everybody’s getting one’s just deserts, clever and smart. Caribbean Nights was recorded by Robert Whiteley in Liverpool and mastered by Michael Schwabe at Monoposto Studios.

From the Bestiary to the Leathering Room


Big John Bates is initiating you into their Southern Gothic Death Cult; a band with an orchestral edge of ”heavy-hearted cello, weeping upright and come-hither guitars”. Every piece was painstakingly brought together from the album art created by Santiago Caruso (Pan’s Labyrinth) to the mixing David Carswell (Teagan & Sara, New Pornographers). Songwriting, vocals and the heavy lifting is all from Brandy Bones & Big John Bates. Along with upright bass Brandy contributed violin, cello and thumb piano while John broke into his collection of guitars, dobros and percussion.
