Long time no news...

Yes, this whole website has been somewhat... errm.. abandonned for some time. The whole idea regarding the alionmind webshop has been not cancelled completely but stopped, because there were and are  a lot of more important things to be done. So I deleted the postings regarding the webshop and want to focus this Website/Blog a bit more on... well... more important things.

So what has happened at the alionmind tower of power high above the roofs of north-east Hamburg? A LOT! So here we go:

  1. In October the album "Mesopotamia" of Cimelium has been released.
  2. Also in October the album "Heroes of the Popp-Culture" by Willma Poppen has been released.
  3. Songs for other projects have been finnished. Some of them have been showcased of Soundclous allready, many not ;)
  4. AlionLive Madeira, my video series about my 2011 trip to Madeira, showcasing the (up to that date) complete catalogue of alionmind records has been finnished in October.
  5. Sonny has visited the beautiful island of Madeira once again, brought back loads of raw video material. So it is time for "AlionLive Return 2 Madeira".

I want to highlight a special song release, which took place about 3 days ago. You remember the project TUBENWURST of the alionmind family? Yeah, maybe you thought that this would be just one more short living project by me, which I ditch after having some fun with it. But, no, despite the fact, that TUBENWURST released just 3 songs, of which one was originally still released under the name alionsonny, it is an important element of the alionmind projects structure.

That song released 3 days ago is titled Beatrice. And those of you who know me, will now wonder: Sonny does NEVER name songs after women, Sonny does not write love songs, Sonny is our well known robot-like authist from the neighborhood who doesn't show any feelings, eh? ;) Well, I will in fact not tell much about it, but the song Beatrice is in fact dedicated to a beautiful and very lovely person I met in Madeira. Yes, one could say, I fell somewhat in love. May the gossip spread like wildfire...
Ahh, nearly forgot: There's a little sweepstakes/contest going on and YOU can win 1 of 5 free downloads of the first album "Mesopotamia" by Cimelium. The contest finnishes on December 24th. So you still have a chance to win. For those who rather would like to win 1 of 5 free copies of Willma Poppen's "Heroes of the Popp-Culture": Wait until christmas. betweens the 24th of December and 1rst of January, you'll also get a chance to win what you desire.

Ok, what is happening now and in the near future:
  1. With this blogpost, I am starting the alionmind records blog in german language also. For the near future a german version of the alionmind website will be here. This will take place in the course of a complete overhaul of all websites in my little empire. Be prepared for some serious changes.
  2. AlionLive Return 2 Madeira will start as soon as possible.
  3. More songs by the TUBENWURST project will be released so we can release an album called "Iss doch E-Wurst".
  4. A new album of Cimelium is on it's way. Again it is a themed album. This time the title will be "Madeira"... and guess what is the theme of the album ;)
  5. A new album of Willma Poppen is also on it's way. I have loads of wacky working titles for it, but... gimme some time.
Ok, that's so far everything comming to my mind. If I forgot something... well, who cares? ;)

A new start: Here is the new alionmind records!

Well, let's bury that idea of just another Weblabel amongst all the others. Let's bury the idea of getting lazy pot smoking bedroom musicians to get their lazy asses up to get something done. This has never and will never work. As a matter of fact we also ran across some serious legal issues while thinking about doing such a venture like a full blown Weblabel, totally independent from the big music industry, with total strangers from all over the world. To keep a long story very short: alionmind records will stay what it ever was: The home label of me, alionsonny, on which I release all my works and works with other musicians but of which I own all publishing rights. And HELL, this is really enough for that label. As I allready have 3 completely independent and exciting musical projects running and not just a few on my agenda, me and some great friends are a music industry on our own. We don't need strangers. So here we go, on the path of victory, we will take the world of music over and change it. Everything stays as it never was!
