The Androgyne Show:

ein zweites Album des duos Sister Chain & Brother John


Als Gründungsdatum des Duos Sister Chain & Brother John gilt die Begegnung der Berliner Sängerin Sister Chain mit Musiker und Produzent Brother John Higgins (ehemaliger Frontman der Londoner Band Val's Basement) in einem mysteriösen Buchladen im Juli 2005.


Das Duo hat seither bereits über 250 Konzerte in Kirchen, auf Schiffen, an Straßenecken, in Kriegsgebieten sowie auf Festivals und in den üblichen kleinen Klubs und großen Konzerthallen gegeben. Im Jahre 2008 veröffentlichten sie ihre Debut-LP "Darkness to warm your Heart" und tourten damit unter anderem durch Dänemark, Norwegen, Deutschland, Großbritannien, Tschechien und Israel. 


Gekleidet wie viktorianische Edelleute, eine verzerrte Gitarre und ein Tamburin schwingend, singt das Duo von kleinen Gemeinheiten und Liebeskummer, von Teenager-Fantasien und erotischen Alpträumen. Unter dem selbst gewählten Leitmotiv „We like distortion, yes, distortion and tea“ erschaffen Sister Chain & Brother John einen einzigartigen Musikstil, der sich am ehesten als Salon Punk oder moderne Kammermusik beschreiben ließe, und präsentieren Dunkelheit, die eure Herzen erwärmt.


Ihr zweites Album "The Androgyn Show" ist bereits in Arbeit und soll im kommenden Jahr das Licht der Welt erblicken. Vielen Dank für Ihre Interesse. Vielen Dank für Ihre Unterstützung. 


Pressestimmen zu Sister Chain & Brother John: 


„Auf ihrem Album "Darkness to warm your Heart" haben sie den kleinen Raum eines Duos souverän mit seinen Beschränkungen angenommen und das weit ausgespielt“ 
(Thomas Mauch – TAZ)


"Sister Chain & Brother John sind schon besonders: Esther Ofarim und Klaus Nomi kommen mir in den Sinn, aber auch Bauhaus und Sisters of Mercy, Brecht und das Kurt Weill Kabarett sowie Lotte Lenja…ich bin gerade bei einer ihrer Shows und schmelze dahin vor Freude, ausgelöst durch irrsinnige Wendungen der Geräusche, Aufschreie und verzerrte Klänge...was für ein triumphaler Abschluss dieses kulturreichen Abends“
(Michael Rorberger – The Town Mouse) 


 “Subversiv, Interessant und Einzigartig. Was wollt ihr mehr?“ 
(Gareth Owen – Electronic Beats)

The Androgyne Show 

– A second Album of the Duo Sister Chain & Brother Show. 


The duo Sister chain & Brother John formed in July 2005 when Berlin based singer Sister Chain (Skin Blues, Spinster Sister) and Brother John Higgins (former frontman of London band Val’s Basement and fly by night producer) met in a mysterious bookshop.


Since that day, Sister Chain and Brother John have played over 250 concerts in churches, on boats, on street corners in war zones as well as the usual nightclubs, festivals and concert halls. They released their debut album "Darkness to Warm Your Heart" in 2008 and toured in Denmark, Norway, Germany, UK, The Czech Republic, Israel and more. 


Looking like Victorian gentlefolk, wielding a distorted guitar and a tambourine, they relate stories of the wicked set and the lovelorn; of teenage daydreams and erotic nightmares, creating what can best be described as Parlour Punk or latter day chamber music.


The duo's second album "The Androgyn Show" will be released in 2011 and will feature the duo’s latest work. Thank you for your interest and your pledge


Praise for Sister Chain & Brother John: 


„On their Album, Darkness to Warm Your Heart, Sister Chain and Brother John have taken the framework of the duo with all its limitations and used it to its full extent”
(Thomas Mauch – Die Tageszeitung) 


“Nowadays, everyone wants to be in a band, or make music, or say their piece. It takes someone like Sister Chain & Brother John to come along and remind us - if you don't have anything new to say, in a way it's not been said before - don't bother. Subversive, interesting and unique. What more could you want?”
(Gareth Owen - Elecronic Beats)


“Sister Chain & Brother John are something else: Esther Ofarim and Klaus Nomi spring to mind, but also Bauhaus and The Sisters of Mercy, the Brecht and Kurt Weil Cabaret and Lotte Lenja…I am at their show now and I am melting with pleasure, a different type of pleasure, one that comes from insane twists of noise, screams and distortions…what a triumphant Finale to such a cultural evening”
(Michael Rorberger – The Town Mouse)

    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.

    Viele Grüsse,
    Inkubato

    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.


    Best,
    Inkubato

Project Creator

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.
