Van de Forst

“Unconditional”: No compromise for VAN DE FORST in 2020
release 11.09.2020

You have to begin by having faith in yourself, even if it feels like a natural prerequisite: VAN DE FORST sings pop in English with a strong country appeal. There is currently no niche for this genre in Germany and VAN DE FORST has taken the step of creating her own variety with her new album “Unconditional”. “Of course, I’m taking a certain risk by making this type of music. However, I feel it’s worth taking the plunge because I love it and at the same time, I view it as a challenge.” Country pop – catchy and with soul, steel guitar and harmonica. That’s not exactly what you’d expect on seeing this young lady adorned with tattoos and a flowing blonde mane, but it was never about adhering to clichés, but about the “feeling” – you have to hear it to be able to feel it.

The Trouble Notes and Friends

To understand the story of The Trouble Notes, one must understand the story of our world. In an effort to reduce cultural barriers, The Trouble Notes have made it their mission to create their own cultural universe, mixing influences from all over the world into their songs.

The emotional, pan-cultural music of the group, forms personal memories into a colorful melting pot of different traditions, touching on deep and complex stories of the human condition and social experiences. Having grown up in different countries with different traditions, they each bring a unique perspective to life and music that helps self-serve as a reminder that their brand of fusion can show a unity in diversity.

The Berlin based quartet is composed of violinist Bennet Cerven, guitarist Florian Eisenschmidt, percussionist Oliver Maguire and bassist Stefan Bielik. Hailing from different countries, each member of the group brings a different musical training and perspective to the band. Bennet, a classical trained violinist born in Chicago, began his violin playing at 4 years old. While he was performing in orchestras and winning prizes in soloist competitions, his love for hip-hop and alternative genres helped shape his mind as a composer.

Burning Man Special Guests

For the Burning Man show, The Trouble Notes are joined by Sissos, Tribubu, Daiana Lou and Level Spaces.

The Aliens That Ate Hollywood

The Aliens were formed at the request of David Catching (guitar player for Queens of the Stone Age/Eagles of Death Metal) to open up for his band Earthlings? at The Opium Den in Hollywood in November of 1998.

Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Them Crooked Vultures) was in the audience of that first gig and requested The Aliens adjourn with him out to The Rancho De La Luna recording studio in Joshua Tree, California to take part in a series of recordings he had been doing called The Desert Sessions. The Aliens were featured in Desert Sessions Volume 6.

This illustrious beginning started a career of playing such unorthodox venues as a whore house, funeral, several rumbles (that is, appearances that turned into rumbles), many desert generator parties, and a summer residency at a transvestite/butch dyke bar.

The Aliens That Ate Hollywood are currently touring the Universe and were last seen playing at a hole in the wall on the outskirts of Uranus.

The Aliens were delighted when asked to make an appearance (abduction) at Radio Venice TV.
