    Willkommen guide to End of the Road festival

    Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

    For those of you off to End of the Road festival this weekend, there are lots of Willkommen related bands that you should go and see.

    FRIDAY

    SATURDAY

    SUNDAY

    • Ichi at 12:30pm in the Tipi Tent

    We should have our own stage shouldn’t we?! Yes I think so too. We also highly recommend but aren’t yet affiliated with Joe Gideon and the Shark (0:30am, Saturday night, Tipi Tent), Bo Ningen (5pm, Sunday, Big Top) and the mighty David Byrne (9:30pm, Friday, Woods Stage) – one of the best live performers I’ve ever seen. This is quite a handy page for seeing all the stage times in one place. See you there!

    Free Christmas download – Willkommen Patchwerk

    Friday, December 21st, 2012

    patchwerk_heading

    In the past we’ve created several collaborative Willkommen projects for free download over the Christmas period.

    This year we asked as many Willkommen related artists as possible to simply contribute thirty seconds of sound. I stitched them together in the order in which they arrived to make a sonic patchwork quilt. The result is incredibly diverse and beautiful despite the random nature of its composition and form.

    Thank you to the following people for contributing:

    Alessi Laurent-Marke (Alessi’s Ark)
    Woodpecker Wooliams
    Said Speaks
    Landshapes
    Marcus Hamblett
    Soccer96
    Eyes & No Eyes
    Hamilton Yarns
    Thomas Heather
    Danny Green (Laish)
    Gravenhurst
    John Smith
    Fiona Sally Miller
    Nick Hemming (The Leisure Society)
    This Is The Kit
    Rachael Dadd & Ichi
    Rozi Plain
    Birdengine
    Helen Whitaker (The Leisure Society)
    Steve Aston Trio

    New Woodpecker Wooliams Tape

    Sunday, May 6th, 2012

    Woodpecker Wooliams has a new release out via Love Lion (Chicago, USA)

    It is a collaboration with OCDC (Rory Dickinson) – a tape cassette release of their soundtrack to independent German film Anni.

    She’ll have copies soon for sale at gigs or it can be ordered from Love Lion or picked up from Reckless Records in Chicago.

    “Anni brings to mind the atmospheric musings of…artists like Stars of the Lid or the most minimal moments Kraftwerk has to offer. Expect spy radio samples and enough latent emotion to make your bowels move unexpectedly. Fairly much the slowed down sound of a gory car-crash of the heart.”
