This Charming Man Records-News

Great news from great people. Hamburg, Bielefeld, Münster & Dortmunds mighty BLCKWVS entered the Tonmeisterei in Oldenburg to record their upcoming LP “0150″ – they are very “mystic” about the new stuff, i haven’t heard a second of the rehearsal demos & the only thing they told me is that there will be some slight changes & experiments on “0150″. i am super excited!

Maybe they try some singing on some of the new songs, maybe the new stuff is a little more rockish than the previous material? dunno… I mos def keep you posted on this and they promised to get me the rough mixes as soon as possible.

there are also some plans to do do a special BLCKWVS LP-Box with all of their previous vinyls, new mastered and new recorded extra stuff.


I don’t know when The Tidal Sleep wrote new songs – they played literally at every Pommesbude in germany over the last few month – but obviously they found some time to do so. if everything works well, we get five, if they are laid back they do “only” three new songs which will be released september/october this year via TCM. that’s the quote from their page:

“we’re heading into a studio in cologne tonite. arktika recorded there, and were really happy with the outcome. they’re also lending us some of their stuff. thanks a million. recording/engineering will be handled by producer extraordinaire lewis johns of the long haul fame. chilling with us will be the lovely alexander pennie of goodtime boys fame. they will be impressed by our total unprofessional approach to play in time to a click track! ” – there is a lot of fame going on…

make sure you’ll catch them on tour somewhere here and/or read a german interviewhere:

A warm welcome to these five guys to the TCM-family. I know these “aged” punkrockers for almost two decades. I played with Fips “Euroboy” Volke together in Durango95, I toured with Jobst (played in the mighty HIGHSCORE) in the 90s and know the Maze Polanski and Nothings new guy on bass from tons of shows we played together with The Now Denial, Mönster, Costas Cakehouse & Lllynch. So i am very happy that they met two years ago to found another great band: NOTHING from Berlin. If you ask my opinion, their new record is a big step forward to even more shredding oldschool Hardcorepunk a la Poison Idea.  The seven songs on “we embrace the hatred” are very great and passion-driven and if you dig some oldschool styled hardcorepunk check out this little fucker and visit NOTHINGs FB Side. I will have the vinyl in stock mids of july, in time for the Nothing tour. i will have a ltd. col edition and all LPs come with a heavy Inside-Out-Cover & Downloadcode.  Auschecken…. wholesale 6,50 & trades welcome…
