The Androgyne Diaries – What's been going on in the last few monthes…
May 10: Money in the bank, two songs on tape!
the Androgyne cash has finally made its way slowly but very soundly to the special Androgyne bank account we established for this purpose. It's really a great feeling to know that theres one thing we don't have to worry about anymore - thanks to all you kind supporters & to the Inkubato venture. Meanwhile, we finished recording 2 songs from the Album: The Last Room & One Two One Two. Other News is that the Androgyne Show will be distributed by Pale Music Int. So it will be available in many record shops & online stores. There are a couple of gigs coming up as well - so it's all looking pretty bright here in the darkness.
June 10: 6 Songs on Tape+Free tickets to Show in Berlin
We recorded 4 more songs among them - the crowd favourite On The Roof . Now we're working on the title song: The Androgyne Show, which requires special space effects (we've contacted NASA). Next in the line is our Las Vegas show number: The Gambler. Exclusive last minute offer to the Androgyne sponsors! we're playing a live gig at Zosch tonight with They Shoot Horses - it'll be a grand glam garage guerrila gulasch!!! if you wanna be on the guest list , let us know. from all of us here at Dwarfhaus Studios (=brother john & myself) I wish you a great weekend!!!
July 21: 7 on Tape - 3 to go! + Sneak Preview of photo
Recording's been quite slow this time. Still struggling with the big band number (anyone knows a Trombonist, by any chance?). But we started looking into the next stages of the Album: We did a photo shoot for the cover (you can see an exclusive sample by clicking right here), found a great mastering engineer, lined up & demagnetised the Dwarfhaus 1/4 inch machine (don't ask...) & discussed numerous technical details & figures with analogue dorks & experts. Right now the Danish release date is 28.10 - so we're in quite a rush. More news: In September we’re playing in Sweden at the Live at Heart festival - we hope to get those Swedes keen on the new Album & sell lots of copies of the old one. to be continued...
Well folks! we are almost there! just looking for one or two final pledges! Perhaps you have a friend who is internet-lazy and could use a push in the right direction? many vinyl fans have this problem...
The last person to pledge will receive on top of the pramie - a thank you credit on the album.
so who will pick up this lacy glove???
NEWS FLASH: THE ANDROGYNE SHOW to be joint venture of DWARFHAUS RECORDS and SOPA.
Hello supporters, we have some good news: the Danish lable Sounds Of Perpetual Astonishment (SOPA) that we so far cooperated with in all our Denmark gigs, will be co-producing the album, which means - more promotion and distribution in the northern region, and for you, to celebrate the hapy venture: a Danish Pastry for every supporter!!!
REMEMBER, WE HAVE 14 DAYS TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN, so make sure you post the INKUBATO project to all your facebook friends, and tell your offline friends too!
thanks a lot! Sister Chain & Brother John
Ursprünglich sollte dieses Projekt am 15.1.2011 enden.
SisterChain&BrotherJohn haben als Erste überhaupt ein Projekt bei Inkubato gestartet - noch bevor die Website wirklich an die Öffentlichkeit ging.
Aus Gründen der Fairness haben wir uns deshalb entschlossen, "The Androgyn Show" um einen Monat zu verlängen, um so die Chancen zu erhöhen, dass das Album tatsächlich finanziert und produziert wird.
Das Projekt endet nun also am 15.2.2011.
Originally, the project was set to close on 15.1.2011.
SisterChain&BrotherJohn were the first ever to start a project on Inkubato and therefore are true pioneers, boldly posting before any traffic had come to the site.
For reasons of fairness, we have decided to extend the pledging period for another month, in order to increase the chance of funding and eventually realizing the project.
The project will now end on 15.2.2011.
I am the singer of Sister Chain and Brother John - a Berlin based duo.
We make dramatic music, perform in Victorian attire and record on analog Tape. Two years ago we released our first album Darkness to Warm Your Heart that accompanied a stage show by the same name. We are now working on our second album: The Androgyne Show. It includes the songs we've been playing in our new performance.
We joined Inkubato to look for sponsors for this Album and make this vinyl dream come true quicker!
By the way, The Androgyne Show is a joint venture of our home lable DWARFHAUS RECORDS and the Danish lable SOPA.
