Music Diary – 14th November

Welcome to my personal Music Diary – today for the 14th November!

This day is a very special one for me, because it was the beginning of an addiction to a very special sound – the so-called Denver sound! On the 14th November 1996 I received my copy of the fantastic debut album from the amazing group Sixteen Horsepower! I came across this band by the sampler „Rolling Stone Presents New Voices – Vol. 8“ which was edited with the German music magazine. On this CD the song „Haw“ hooked me immediately and so I ordered the album „Sackcloth’n’Ashes“ from a mail-order in Bremen.

The band line up at that time was David Eugene Edwards, Keven Soll and Jean-Yves Tola. As a special guest Gordon Gano from the Violent Femmes played violin on some tracks during the recording sessions back in 1995.

Unfortunately it took a long time to see this outstanding band live for the first time – but it happened in September 2002. After the show David was so nice to sign my cover of the US release 😉

Music Diary – 26th July

Hello, dear Music Maniacs all around the world to my music diary for the 26th July!

After seeing Mr. Tom Waits live in Paris twice in a row in 2008, a third concert followed directly. So I arrived in Munich for Woven Hand. David Eugene Edwards and his band were billed for a show at the club Ampere that day.

Music Diary – 20th June

Dear Musicfans!

Today, on the 20th June, I didn’t attend any concert, but I bought myself one of my all time favorite albums as it happened on the 20th June 2006:

Mosaic“ by Woven Hand (or Wovenhand – it’s up to you as DEE told me in an interview) was released and as a huge fan of David Eugene Edwards (and 16 Horsepower of course!) I was very looking forward to this one.

It features beautiful and intense songs like „Winter Shaker„, „Swedish Purse„, „Dirty Blue“ or „Deerskin Doll“ which developed over the years to the highlights of any Wovenhand show.

Cheers,

Alex Melomane
