Hall of Sermon is happy to announce the all new album from Tilo Wolff [LACRIMOSA]’s Industrial / electro sideproject, the first new sign of life of SNAKESKIN exactly 10 years after the release of the previous album “Canta’tronic.” “Tunes for my Santiméa” features vocals by Tilo Wolff with female singers Kerstin Doelle (who was already present on “Canta’tronic”) and the new entry Carina Boehmer! 10 new songs of uncompromising electro, melting with classical arrangements, a flavour of pop and a tremendous amount of anger and emotions! Although this release is closer to the style of LACRIMOSA, than the two previous albums, also this third album is very ‘industrial’ influenced and faithful to the project’s unique style. With three singers the range of the project’s sound is wider than ever before! Tilo is currently putting the final touches on a high quality video clip, produced in Los Angeles with crewmembers of Steven Soderbergh (“Ocean’s Eleven,” “Magic Mike”…).
Loonee Tunes! is the second album by Bad Manners, from the year 1980. In keeping with the format of their first album, the first track is an instrumental. It reached number 36 on the UK album chart. The album opens with "Echo 4-2" which became the band's cult instrumental introduction number at all live gigs.
When it comes to picking material, today's young hard boppers (both instrumentalists and singers) could learn a lot from Sonny Rollins – a tenor titan who has always had a way of surprising us with interesting, unexpected choices. Over the years, he hasn't made the mistake of limiting himself to overdone Gershwin and Cole Porter favorites; Rollins doesn't exclude well-known standards by any means, but he has also made a point of interpreting a lot of material that other hard boppers have ignored (and that has included everything from forgotten show tunes to Stevie Wonder gems).
