New Willkommen release: Volume 1, a fourteen track compilation

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

Lovingly compiled and packaged, Willkommen Collective: Volume 1 is a broad cross section of the many faces of the Willkommen Collective. The fourteen tracks include exclusives from our more well known acts (The Leisure Society, Sons of Noel and Adrian etc.) as well as the wonderful selections from our lesser known bands, all in beautiful silkscreened card digipacks for a very low price. The CD is available in shops now as well as directly from us.

Union Chapel tonight!

Friday, June 12th, 2009

Everyone involved in The Leisure Society, Sons of Noel and Adrian, Shoreline, Laish, The Miserable Rich and Kopek is unbelievably excited about tonight’s show at the Union Chapel. This is just a last minute reminder: you can still buy tickets here or there will be some on the door. It’s going to be very memorable.

Sons of Noel and Adrian perform live film score this Saturday at the legendary Roundhouse

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

The day after our Union Chapel show this Friday, the Willkommen fun continues as Sons of Noel and Adrian collaborate with Kopek to perform a live soundtrack to the 1928 silent Surrealist classic La Coquille et le clergyman.
The event is called Think in Oceans and also sees the exciting new project from Caroline Weeks and friends The Collectress perform to Sergei Parajanov’s masterpiece, The Colour of Pomegranates. The organiser Ben Pritchard writes:

“It was the Edwardian hero Admiral Jackie Fisher who exhorted his audience to ‘Think in Oceans’. Whilst this inclination may have served to sharpen his tools, it is a message which also inspired some of the greatest worldly discovers, and now lends itself to a silent film night taking in the wonders of Armenian culture and sexually driven members of the clergy. Ticking the boxes?”

Think in Oceans takes place this Saturday (13 June) at the Roundhouse.  More details and tickets here.
