We are very happy to announce that the new album entitled "Time"by the german cult act Sweet William has just arrived at our office. As a consequence you can immediatly order it ! Celebrating its 30 years of existence, the german cult act Sweet William offers us a brand new album consisting of 15 tracks. It is probably the most personal and emotional album Sweet William has ever released, the songs are cold, melancholic but still open towards the light. This is a real masterpiece, coming out in a very nice digisleeve.
SWEET WILLIAM (Germany) - It seems we're not the only band who have celebrated their 30th anniversary in October, so have Oliver Heuer's SW. Admittedly, our own celebrations may have gone a little skewiff, but I'm pleased to say they didn't join us in spending three months trapped in another dimension. Instead, they went for the more sensible options of a book, a CD boxed set and a special commemorative t-shirt. I think we'll let them plan ours next time, not that I didn't enjoy a half a lager and a bag of crisps in The Bourne Arms, it just seemed a little understated for three decades. You live and learn. Full details on the SW website, enjoy muchly..

01- Follow me 02- Show 03- Over to nowhere 04- Behind the scenes 05- When the levee breaks (Led Zeppelin Cover) 06- The streams of summer 07- Across the river and into the Trees
Here are some news from one of the finest man in the "Underground Music Scene" - Mick Magic. It is some years ago when tapes were still alive and self printed mailorders and fanzines were a very important way to communicate within the world of independent musicians. Mick released some SW and Psychedelic Dancefloor albums on his "Music & Elsewhere" Label - now he is back also with a new compilation release (contains SW and PSYDA tracks) and it is more than worth to take a deep look right here:
Eine der nettesten und wichtigsten Personen der "Untergrund Musikszene" - Mick Magic ist wieder aktiv. Es ist schon einige Jahre her, als Tapes, selbstkopierte Fanzines und Mailorder wichtige Kommunikationwege innerhalb der Independent Szene waren. Mick veröffentlichte einige SW und Psychedelic Danceflloor Album als Tape auf seinem "Music & Elsewhere" Label. Hier ist der Link zu seiner neuen aktuellen Webseite und seiner neusten Veröffentlichung - inklusive SW und PSYDA Stücken.
SWEET WILLIAM's forthcoming album is at the pressing plant, official release date is set for March the 30th ! The new album "Ocean" is a concept album which is enjoyed best listening in one take:
The album begins with a prologue, classically instrumented, then proceeds directly with the title track "Ocean"
which finally opens the album in the good old rock style and straightforward.
Constant tempo changes and musical opposites merge into one another, without losing the thread that runs
through the issue of "Ocean" in its content.
SWEET WILLIAM’s music is back to its roots which leaded them to be a successful band signed on the respected
Hyperium and Dion Fortune labels, and the first drummer of the band, Marius Nagel is back with SWEET WILLIAM ! “Ocean” is about the human abyss, weaknesses, loneliness and longing, but also about beauty, hopes,
dreams and trust in life. Driving drums and electronics passages merge seamlessly into minimalistic pieces that leave room for your own
illusions and dreams. SWEET WILLIAM’s music at times seems threatening, dark – but then again bright and shiny –
just like the sea - the Ocean. This album contains some tracks that will be without any doubt some great hits such as “Insane”,
“Welcome to the show”, “Over”, “Ground”, “Last restart” but it also features a wonderful cover of
SW celebrate 25 years of band history - there will be several publications in the next month.
First there will be a new Rarities CD, again with plenty of unreleased material.
In the 2nd half of this year a new album will be released again on d-monic records.

Hier der Infotext zur CD - here is the infotext to the cd:
The new album by SWEET WILLIAM is packed with 68 minutes of music. 14 tracks of dark electronic rock music combined with the typical SW psychedelic elements take you on a journey through the depths of human emotional conditions. The music changes from track to track – telling stories of lost souls, of hope and than the songs let the world shine again by creating warm and shimmering atmospheres. Electronic elements, loops combined with real drums, guitars, the driving bass lines, strings, pianos and the characteristic vocals are formed to a musical experience that is hard to find these days. You’ll find slow, smooth tracks going over into fast electronic songs, tracks being longer than 6 minutes as well as pop art songs of about 3:30 minutes. The new SWEET WILLIAM album “Brighter than the sun” shows the many faces of the band, the ability to surprise the listener with new elements while never leaving their typical sound that they’ve created during their long existence.
