What we are listening right now Part IV

After having a long period of being mainly into fusion jazz, the taste of music became a bit less virtuous and fast. But there is no way to be fed up with groove! Right now I am totally digging theStreetwalkers album „Downtown Flyers“ released on Vertigo Records... especially the A-side!

No other than Iron Maiden‘s Nicko McBrain plays drums on this awesome album from 1975. A little less TomToms for sure. On vocals is Roger Chapman who is best known for the vocals in Mike Oldfield‘s 80s hit „Shadow On The Wall“. A really unique voice back in times when it was not that important how you look like, if you are just talented. I recommend the song „Crawfish“, last Song in side A!

New album coming April 24th

Out of the blue, into the black, Wight's new album "Spank the World" hits on April 24th, 2020. Wight go back to the roots, but it is not entirely clear to whose roots - as always. 10 tracks, 41 minutes of real Darmstadt madness, funky, psychedelic, jazzy and rocking hard just the same, all embedded into an ever-so-fitting story of this world's demise. Or as we say, "Our path leads towards a bleak future, but the decision is to at least dance while walking it."
 
Available digitally and on CD on April 24th, available on vinyl via Kozmik Artifactz

Wight Germany Tour in Fall 2017

Hello friends. It's time to announce the dates for the last shows in 2017 and also time to announce that we'll have a break of playing live in 2018. We might play some festivals and we might play shows after the summer... but it all depends on how fast we will finish our 4th album. It's the first time writing songs as a 4 piece and we don't wanna give the creative process any pressure in time or musical boudaries.
We hope to get back to you stronger than ever! Please take the chance to listen to the songs of "Love Is Not Only What You Know" live in October and November all over Germany.
