Tom Geldschläger: Fountainhead joins Obscura as their new guitar-player

“It gives me great pleasure to anounce that I’ve joined Obscura as their new guitar-player. Having already worked with Linus and past members Christian and Hannes in recent projects and having followed the band’s career closely since their very first tour, the transition felt completely natural. Taking over Christians duties in the band makes me feel equal parts proud and at ease, since we’ve known and respected each other for many years. I’m very much looking forward to touring the world with my fantastic new band-mates, entering the studio for a new record VERY soon and also being able to bring my playing on both fretted and fretless guitars to a wider audience through this exciting new opportunity.” – Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger

“Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger and Sebastian Lanser will add some new and fresh vibes to Obscura’s trademark sound. Adding fretless guitars and more fusion drumming will definitely influence our songwriting. I am looking forward desperately to work with this new talented group of musicians on the fourth record. At the moment we are in the middle of writing new material, rearranging previously written ideas and start preparing the upcoming liveshows in 2015. First festivals will be announced soon, worldwide touring activities follow the album release. With a new record, intense performances and a full live production we want to meet our fans & friends around the globe!” – Steffen Kummerer

Dave Davies: Kinks Legend and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer To Release New Album 'Rippin Up Time'

Dave Davies: Kinks Legend and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer To Release New Album 'Rippin Up Time'

New York, NY - The man who forever changed the sound of rock 'n' roll when he invented distortion, Kinks legend Dave Davies, has recorded a brand new solo album of all original material called 'Rippin’ Up Time' on New York based Red River Entertainment. Produced by Dave Davies & David Nolte, the new CD features 10 original new songs written in the classic Kinks style that fans of all ages will want to hear. Listen to 'Rippin Up Time' here.

Dave Davies founded the Kinks in the early 1960's and forever changed music after he sliced up the speaker cone of a little green amp and created a revolutionary, distorted guitar tone and frenetic solo on the song “You Really Got Me”. Musicologist Joe Harrington described the Kinks influence: “ 'You Really Got Me', 'All Day And All Of The Night' ... were predecessors of the whole three-chord genre ... The Kinks did a lot to help turn rock n roll into rock.” In 1998, writer Bill Crowley wrote, “As lead guitarist and founder of The Kinks, Dave Davies is one of the most unpredictable and original forces in rock, without whom guitar-rock styles including heavy metal and punk would have been inconceivable. A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Dave's massive guitar sounds have inspired bands from Van Halen to Green Day.”

Dave explains that 'Rippin Up Time' is about “a man's reflections of the past, his fears, anxieties and optimism about the present and hopeful expectations about the future. I had a lot of ideas in my head thinking about the past and how we started and the Kinks and my own life and the present and what's happening with my life now and concerns and worries, anxieties about the future. I suddenly had an image of all the times overlapping as if they're all in one place in my mind. I thought I'd just write it from the point of view of a dream. It's a mixture of emotions that I was going through as I was writing the songs, some would be happy or reflective or sad.”

Hard hitting tracks “Johnny Adams”, “Nosey Neighbours” and title track “Rippin Up Time” show Dave's classic riffs, distinctive singing and playing style while songs like “Semblance of Sanity” and “Mindwash” take the listener to otherworldly, inner landscapes. Dave's son musician/producer Russ Davies' appearance is a surprise treat with his smokey vocals on “In the Old Days” and “Through my Window”. Says Dave, “It was wonderful working with my son Russ Davies and old friend David Nolte on this project and am really excited about the album.” Dave's accent and cockney brogue gives a delightful English flavour to many tracks. He shows his sensitive side in the pensive, futuristic ballad “Between the Towers” while “King of Karaoke” takes a humorous look at many people's favorite pastime. David Nolte's musical contributions and thoughtful co-production throughout 'Rippin Up Time' reveals an inspiring creative collaboration. Former E1 and PolyGram executive Bob Frank's Red River label which is distributed via Sony RED in the US is proud to be releasing 'Rippin Up Time' due out on October 28, 2014.

In a recent interview with Andy Greene of Rolling Stone, Dave imparted, “I like to work quick. You want to attack an idea when it's living and breathing. I didn't want to reach the stage where I heard the songs so many times I began to second guess myself, which has happened in the past.""

Since the early days, Dave Davies has worked on a slew of critically acclaimed records, ranging from solo hit single “Death of a Clown”, to experimental Kinks records like 'Village Green Preservation Society' and 'Arthur' as well as the classic 'Lola' in the 70's. In the 80's Dave released experimentally prescient solo work like the eponymous album titled 'Dave Davies' or 'AFL1-3603' named after himself and/or the barcode symbol face cover art. His mainstream success continued in the 80's on hit Kinks albums 'Low Budget' and 'State of Confusion'. In the 90's he released more solo work such as 'Bug' and the compilation 'Unfinished Business'. His songs have been featured in films by John Carpenter and on TV shows like 'The Sopranos', which used his tune “Living On A Thin Line”. His tell-all autobiographical book 'Kink' was well received in the late 90's as well. In recent years, Dave has collaborated creatively with his sons. In 2010 he worked with son Russell Davies in the Aschere Project to create the hauntingly, beautiful rock electronica album 'Two Worlds'. The film 'Mystical Journey', directed by son Martin Davies, narrates Dave's longtime interest in the paranormal, Eastern philosophies and spirituality (the film inspired Julien Temple s BBC documentary 'Kinkdom Kome'). In 2013 Dave released 'I Will Be Me' on Cleopatra Records. No matter how diverse the ambition, Dave Davies puts his heart and soul in all of his projects.

Ever the visionary legend always ahead of his time, from slashing up a speaker cone all those years ago to his new release 'Rippin In Time', Dave Davies, rocks the past, present and, no doubt, the future!

Tracks include:
1. Ripping Up Time
2. Semblance of Sanity
3. King of Karaoke
4. Front Room
5. Johnny Adams
6. Nosey Neighbours
7. Mindwash
8. Between the Towers
9. In The Old Days
10. Through My Window

John Fogerty: Tour Celebrates the Year Fogerty Released Three Seminal Albums



COAST-TO-COAST Tour to start November 7th in Newfoundland

Tour Celebrates the Year Fogerty Released Three Seminal Albums

(Los Angeles, CA) 1969. It has been over four decades since that moment in history. Still, with our memories washed by 40 years of time the milestones appear unmistakably before us. All at once, the nation stood tall, eyes skyward, as we sought to be part of Man’s grandest adventure; setting human feet upon the Moon. Those same feet danced across the trodden grass of a New York farm as the brightest voices in music played for the Woodstock crowds. Yet, even as we stood, our hearts sank as thousands of our young men died, fighting in a little-known strip of Asian jungle called Vietnam. Music legend and societal icon, John Fogerty, was there in 1969. Yet, he wasn’t just present, he permeated the age. Fogerty’s music, his lyrics and his voice, through an amazing and never-duplicated release of three separate albums with Creedence Clearwater Revival (Bayou Country, Green River, and Willy and the Poor Boys) in that one year, gave the nation, even the world, an emotional and intellectual marker forever burned within our collective psyche. Now, in his 69th year, Fogerty is calling us back to 1969, to re-invigorate those ties that bind us, with his upcoming “1969” World Tour.  The tour will kick-off this November with Cross-Country Canadian performances beginning in St. John’s, Newfoundland, on November 7 before heading west to finish in Victoria, BC on November 29th.  More dates and countries will be announced for 2015.

This tour celebrates the music and the events of 1969 as heard through the music of John Fogerty, writer and producer of those three classic albums. As part of CCR, Fogerty performed at Woodstock, they toured the nation and gave voice to millions of fans. Fogerty felt what was coming, he says, “I just took it all in, everyone knew we were at a pivotal moment, I took it all in and turned it into songs.” He had already established himself as a distinctive voice with the hit song “Suzie Q”, but like all artists, he feared the label; one-hit wonder. With more songs like “Proud Mary” Creedence Clearwater Revival was the #1 band in rock ‘n roll. 1969 came to life through “Born on the Bayou”, “Green River”, “Bad Moon Rising”, an ode to the timing of Man Walking on the Moon, and “Down on the Corner”. In one of his most influential and controversial numbers, Fogerty made his personal declaration on the Vietnam War known through “Fortunate Son”. Harkening back to the spirit of the Irish Draft Riots of the Civil War, his lyrics shoved the unfair practices of the modern draft process into the nation’s focus. Ironically, Fogerty was drafted and is a proud Vietnam-era veteran of the Army Reserve, yet his heartfelt opinions on that conflict and its impact are not swayed.

John Fogerty is a true American original and one of rock ‘n roll’s all-time greatest artists. Even at 8-years old, in his hometown of El Cerrito, California, he had a name for his ‘band’, “Johnny Corvette and the Corvettes.”  As leader of CCR, Fogerty forged a distinctive, groundbreaking sound all his own, equal parts blues, country, pop, rockabilly, R&B, swamp boogie, and Southern fried rock ‘n’ roll, all united by his uniquely evocative lyrical perspective.  Later, Fogerty would prove to be an equally impressive solo artist. Among its many highlights are 1975’s John Fogerty – featuring the rollicking ‘Rockin’ All Over The World’ – and 1985’s #1 phenomenon, Centerfield. With its trio of timeless hit singles, including ‘The Old Man Down The Road,’ ‘Rock And Roll Girls,’ and the irresistible title track, the multi-platinum collection marked Fogerty’s glorious return to the forefront of modern rock ‘n’ roll.

1997’s Blue Moon Swamp earned Fogerty further acclamation, as well as a Grammy Award for ‘Best Rock Album.’ Among his many other honors are induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the BMI Pop Music Awards’ prestigious ‘BMI Icon,’ and Performance Magazine’s ‘Theater Tour of the Year’ Award. In addition, Fogerty and Centerfield were honored during the 2010 National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies – the first time the National Baseball Hall of Fame has immortalized a musician or song as part of the annual ceremonies.

In 2013, Fogerty released Wrote a Song for Everyone, a testament to the fact that the songs written by John Fogerty over the past forty-five years continue to speak in a powerful way to generations of music makers and music lovers.  The album garnered rave critical reviews, including a coveted 5-star review in Rolling Stone.

The upcoming show will be centered around 1969, but also include his complete catalog of hits. Tickets are available now at and Complete tour listing below.

Jeff Beck: Big Block (Live in Tokyo)

Jeff Beck - Big Block (Live in Tokyo)
Eagle Rock
Jeff Beck is undeniably one of the world’s greatest guitar players. DVD: Blu-Ray: Digital Video:Coming Soon Technically brilliant, he is renowned for pushing musical boundaries and has excelled across many different genres from rock and jazz to pop and blues. “Live In Tokyo” was filmed at the Tokyo Dome City Hall in Japan on April 9th this year. These Japanese dates were the first to feature Jeff Beck’s new backing band of Jonathan Joseph (drums), Nicolas Meier (guitars) and Rhonda Smith (bass) and the setlist includes some material from his new, as yet unreleased, studio album. In contrast to Beck’s previous visual releases, both filmed in small clubs, “Live In Tokyo” is filmed in a major concert arena and has a very different, more expansive feel. Jeff Beck is a true guitar legend and this show captures him at his very best.
