So, maybe someone noticed that I seemed to have left Facebook for the last couple of months, here’s what happened:
“[T]he wicked lie, that the past is always tense and the future, perfect” – Zadie Smith, White Teeth
As over the last couple of months there was just too much stuff-not-related-to-music going on, and music itself was sort of seeping out of my life, let’s just stick with above quote, tell that lie again, and just assume the future will bring more music, and updates and stuff to these sites…
We’re happy to announce that we are going to take part in The Great Crashed Fidelis Music Show in Vienna, Austria.
It’s a two-days (or rather two-evenings) indoors-festival taking place at Moë on the 12th and 13th of March, and includes a bunch of very talented (even if i say so myself) musicians and artists. There will also be a “Favourite-Song-Cover-Thing” 🙂
Entry is pay-as-you-wish (as far as I know – you might want to check that again on thursday) and I’ve been told that there is beer to be won, though how much and what you have to do for that is beyond me… Continue reading
Chinese Whispers offers you the opportunity to watch, hear and feel stripped-down and bare performances by brilliant singer/songwriters – leaving you with the pure, undistorted beauty and emotional power of the songs themselves.

My very good friend, Ðuro Rošic*, is playing Die Feile tomorrow – you can find slightly more details at this fb-event. He asked me to help him out on a couple of songs, but due to various circumstances, not all of which were wholly under the control of either him or me, this number has now been reduced to one.

And he is very, very good and this will be his first solo gig so he needs all the support we can give. So, anyone reading this: come to Continue reading
Just returned from a lovely gig at Die Feile, located at Novaragasse 37 in Vienna.
Thank you everyone who came out to listen – there were far more of you than I expected and the reaction was better than I could have hoped for!
Here are some pictures my producer, recording assistant and friend took – thanks, Ðuro!
And also thanks to the owners of Die Feile for offering me to play – it was fun and you were quite welcoming! Continue reading
Now let the empty words corrode
That feed upon your roaring soul
There was a hint a whispered line
A waltz composed in dead man’s time
Something too beautiful to grasp
Making thaw that iron mask
That like a wintry icy blur
Had covered up the dreams that stir
Beneath our fragile, fevered skin –
This life it is a wondrous thing.
On 12 April 2013 we played at Mikes Werkstatt – and Mike did not only record most of the gig but was also so gracious as to give us the recording, for which I’m very grateful as it was a very moving and Continue reading
