in touch for wholesale & trades
I set up a new section called
blah, you'll find reviews there and some other stuff in the future. there's a
new review for woap 10", too.
august 6th 2k8
from tour with Kids Return and it was really impressive, i've seen a lot of places
& bands, met a lot of nice people and made a few new friends. i still struggle
with words to express how grateful i am being blessed with all these experiences.
thanks to everyone involved, mostly kids return, bail, tobi/anna/paul and everyone
who put us up, fed us or gave us a place to sleep
we fade to grey cassettes
and grave, shovel... let's go! / me and goliath 7" are finally out, sorry
for all the delays. i'll put up pictures soon
april 16th 2k8
first of all congrats to tobi of wishes on a plane who passed his chemistry
exams last week!!! he's looking for a place to do his diplomarbeit at, so if you
know someone (the closer to munich the better) write me or wishes. or both. ;-)
secondly congrats to this website because it just turned 1. happy birthday!
Wishes on a Plane 'this faint line' CD-R is out in the US on Bear
Records and they look sweet. the band will have some copies to sell at shows
soon which is good because some people still have these old-fashioned mp3-players...
keep up with the times, people, get a record player! I currently don't know when
Japanese CD-R version will be out. :-(
we finally got ALL records of the 10"
from the pressing plant, about 280 copies went back to the netherlands for some
got in more distrostuff, like Pelican 'march into the sea' 12", followed
by 37 seconds of happiness and what price, wonderland 7"s, Don't mess with
texas 2nd CD and LP, a few CDs from Oto records, thoughts paint the sky CDs are
back in stock and I finally got the missing inserts, CD-Rs and stuff for the kids
I'm thinking about getting a real website with a real
url, with a webshop, with a real ftp, with google finding my website when searching
for "time as a color" and last but not least, without the ads. maybe
then I will finally sell some records without being at Kafe Kult (i love you guys)
eucalypt just broke up. sad sad sad sad sad. and sad. but a bunch more songs
will get released post humous, like a split 10" with majorca and some other
records. I have the collection tape for distro which is awesome
andy/strictly no capital letters has his copies now, he wrote
some nice words about the record at his website:
"this one came
out of the blue, but daniel from the band and time as a color asked if i'd be
interested in helping his band put out a release, and i jumped at the chance.
wishes on a plane play three long songs (totalling just under 20 minutes) on this
ep, a mix of classic emo (julia), indie / emo (mineral) and post rock. you get
build ups, twinkles, singing, sobbing, lengthy instrumental parts, and explosions.
i am stoked to have been in on this one. the packaging is exceptional too, understated
with stamped covers."
get in all releases from russian folk stories in a few days, including the infamous
kids return LP.
february 29th 2k8
wishes on a
plane 'this faint line' 10" is now officially out. they are EUR 7 plus postage.
please ask for wholesale and trades. we're kind of slow cutting, printing artwork
& booklets and assembling records, so please be patient if it takes some time
until we can send out all wholesale orders and trades. andy/sncl will have his
copies next week, so if you're in the UK you can order from him. read more in
the records section.
there's still some preorder copies left (please look
down at this site). these are EUR 7, too. if you're from switzerland you can order
these from Marianne/Ape must not kill ape. actually I don't know if she sells
them or is just a weird collector like me. (man, I got 4 copies of Mono 10"!!!)
I got some new
stuff for distro from Utarid Tapes, Denovali and Hey, Neighbour as well as assorted
stuff from Russian distro vinyl kisses, for example Hiro/Brume Retina split CD
I'll be on tour driving kids return from England in july/august, wishes on
a plane will come along for some shows, too. we still need help with some dates,
please get in touch if you can help

7" is delayed one more time, we will change to a different pressing plant.
I must say with only having 1 vinyl record out and 1 more taking care of I already
learned a lot about pressing plants, about where you can save money and where
you should not when having a record cut and pressed and what "1:1 überspielung"
really means (file under 5 mins coffee break)
when woap 10" is spread
a little I will start recording we fade to grey tapes, I have everything (booklets,
master, cassettes, cover-envelopes) now but need to think about how to record
them. they are quite long compared to mwoo tapes and it would take an eternity
to record them individually via protools and 1 tapedeck again. sorry guys this
is going on so slowly
we finally got awesome sounding tests for wishes on a plane this
faint line 10" so I could okay them last friday and you can preorder them
edition of 50 preorder copies in white handfolded sleeves with blue stamped artwork
(see picture), regular version will come in blue sleeves with white printing.
it's a special kind of "3D-paper" (the paper has "dents").
preorder version will also include a special booklet and will be handnumbered
and personalized if you want to.
EUR 08,50 postage paid in germany
EUR 11,50 ppd in europe
15 ppd worldwide
you preorder another copy for a friend there's no increase of shipping for up
to 2 copies, that means 2 copies are 18,50 ppd in europe and 22 worldwide
you can also get a CD-R with the songs along with the 10" for an extra 50
can pay by paypal, too. please add one extra euro for paypal fees
accept money transfer or cash in a letter. please write to the address in my info.
the records will be sent in late february
record is a collaboration with strictly no capital letters from England, so if
you're from the UK and are not hot for the preorder version you can wait some
more weeks until the record is out officially (I'd say march 1st) until Andy will
have his copies: http://sncl.collective-zine.co.uk/
interested in wholesale/trades please write.
CD-R version will be out in Japan on www.mylifeyourliferecords.com
and in the US on http://www.myspace.com/bearrecords
in a few weeks
can listen to one song at www.myspace.com/timeasacolor
and the live-demo-versions of the songs at www.myspace.com/wishesonaplane
january 29th 2k8
apparently it is a real challenge to cut a vinyl record
as the 2nd run of test pressings for wishes on a plane 10" sucked as much
as the first one did. now we have 12 copies of horrible sounding tests. so we
decided to have it cut at D&M in berlin and have it sent to the pressing plant.
the third bunch of tests is now on the way to me, if they're ok it could be in
time for our show with gslg and rabbit theory. we'll do a preorder version you
can either preorder now or buy at said show with gslg and trt (if the records
come in time). it's going to come in white recordsleeves instead of the normal
blue ones and we'll do something else special.
of gslg, grave, shovel... let's go! / me and goliath split 7" test pressings
arrived and guess what, they sound weak. actually only gslg's side. so it won't
be in time for their tour with solemn leauge:

yeah, we're back from our minitour with tpts and we really enjoyed it. thanks
to everyone involved, especially my dad for making this possible by lending us
his van. we'll try to write some tourdiary and put up some pictures soon, some
are on our myspace already. we hi-8-videotaped two shows and hopefully will get
an audio recording of the Berlin show as well. it was pretty impressive seing
daniel/tpts live solo, he's a talented guitarist and an outstanding entertainer.
and a nice person and a freak too. just for the sake of it.
from tour also means suddenly being out of stock of a lot of records and having
tons of new records in my box (which is slowly getting too small). new in stock
are Petethepiratesquid's LP and 4-way split 10" (one copy each), international
screamo compilations part 1 & 2 on emuzah (part 1 is sold out now from the
label), my vain therapy CD, Followed by 37 seconds of happiness CD-R, Stevan Flipovic
(ex noisy sins of the insect) 3" CD-R, Ringers/Ampere split 6", La Quiete/Catena
Collapse split 7", it.is.imperative EPs and of course:
paint the sky - schlicht und ergreifend CD (EUR7), which is very very good.
mr willis of ohio cassette can be preordered now for EUR 3,50 plus shipping.
I still have thoughts paint the sky * EPs (1st and 2nd edition) and wishes on
a plane tour cds (EUR 3 each) which contain the songs of our upcoming 10",
last week the test pressings arrived and i'm really disappointed because they
sound weak. right now we're waiting for the one guy with good ears at the pressing
plant to retire from being sick to be able to listen to it. it feels annoying.
this means they might be here in late january. if so we'll do a release show february
16th with the rabbit theory and grave, shovel... let's go! at glockenbachwerkstatt
in munich, if not that show will happen anyway. and this is really awesome.
grave, shovel... let's go! recorded their songs for a split 7" with
which will be a collaboration with parade of spectres and asymetrie. I got a roughly
mixed mp3 and i'm super stoked about it.
november 16th 2k7
do a tape EP release with ...we fade to grey which is the other band of grave,
shovel... let's go's manu and constantin. 100 copies, out in december maybe. listen
to them here
november 8th 2k7
I fully (well, maybe 95%) moved to Munich and finally
have internet access at my new home. which does not mean mr willis tape is going
quicker because it is a shitload hell of DIY artwork/record and I realized I currently
have a lot more weight on my shoulders than I can bare, I definitely have to let
some things happen slowlier. TPTS * EP is available now from me for EUR 3. first
50 copies are done, I still need to buy a special white pen for the 2nd 50 copies.
all come on vinyl-lookalike CD-Rs and have handwritten red covers with handpainted
asterisks in see-through paperbagsleeves with some inserts. TPTS and emuzah already
sold out of their copies I think. I'll most likely be a little bad in distributing
it until wishes 10" will be out, so that i can distro both (and even mr willis,
speaking of wishes on a plane 10", it will
go to the pressing plant these days. the record sadly won't be here in time for
woap tour with tpts, anyway you should attend one of they're shows if your're
in essen, near leipzig or berlin. we'll do a tour cd-r with the songs or something.
the TPTS/WOAP tourdates are:
28.11. essen, emokeller + longing for tomorrow
29.11. leipzig, besser wohnen
30.11. roßwein, juz + dead plants live
berlin, subversiv + it.is.imperative
I got some more stuff for distro:
Grave, Shovel... Let's go cassettes, Verstärker/Peter Coretto gatefold LP+CD,
Verstärker B-Seiten CD, Peter Coretto EP, Experimental Dental School/Blown Paper
Bags 7", KC Milian S/T and season//repeat EPs
the short blooming broke up. this is so sad. i wish i could've
done a record with them. wish I was quicker. now I'm crying. Daniel / TPTS is
now solo (bandwise). but I guess he's looking for new musicians, if you care contact
we just put on a show with grave, shovel... let's go! this saturday and
they totally blew me away. I hope to be able to help release a 7" or something
they've planned. they're going to record soon, jeehaa!
I got some reviews
for DATH. read them at records. I also did an interview for Zündfunk/Bayern
2 Radio and should get a cd of it soon. another article at Süddeutsche Zeitung
also featured some info about time as a color but I didn't see it yet, if you
have a copy please scan it and send it to me.
TPTS CD EP and MWOO cassette
are going on slowly because I'm currently moving to Munich so not much is happening
these days. and I still don't have internet access at home for 2 or 3 more weeks.
grrr. but thanks to kiesi I have a rad new cheap computer. i'm also pretty lucky
because I have anna & tobi who helped me moving and three nice guys I live
with now, martin, john and paul. and thanks to my mum and my dad for the cars
and carpet and all their help. I still have my dad's dog blanket lying around
in my room. but i won't trash it. you'll get it back soon, jonas.
stayed at my new home last sunday and it was really nice to see him again. now
he was the first guest at MY new place as well
Wishes on a Plane recordings
are done and will go to mixing next week I hope.
I'll get a bunch of
copies of Verstärker/Peter Coretto gatefold LP+CDs, Verstärker B-Seiten
CD and Die Kleinen Propheten - JAKU CDs (this is Verstärker before their
name change) for distro and will help distribute these, so if you care for a few
copies for your distro or wanna trade please get in touch. Verstärker play
long epic, mostly instrumental music, Peter Coretto play really cool trash pop/punk,
both bands are from Munich. actually p.c. WERE from Munich, because they
sadly broke up some time ago. Verstärker are still active. and good.
august 20th 2k7
the thoughts paint the sky ep is now available
from the band, I should get my vinyl-lookalike cd-rs within the next days. tpts
made 50 copies, emuzah will make another 50 copies with different artwork, I'll
do 100 copies with more different (?) artwork, mine will come in white on white
handpainted and handwritten see-through lunchbags and some photocopied inserts
on white paper. Anna and me are sewing a lot these days for the mr. willis of
ohio cassettes, we have about 50 clothbags sewed and stamped, but i still have
to record the tapes and cut/fold/stamp/glue all cassette inner boxes. but no need
to hurry, i still need lyricsheets and stuff from the band anyway. the one-sided
12" with screened b-side version looks f***ing rad and should be available
from ape soon. i'll for sure get some for distro. the woap 3-song record is taking
shape, recordings will hopefully get finished within the next 2 weeks. a japanese
label will most likely release a cd-r version of it which is the raddest thing
i can imagine.
sounds like a busy (and expensive) 2nd half of 2007...
july 21st 2k7
in case you don't know them yet you should definitely
check out Kenzari's
Middle Kata, just saw them live last saturday and they're for sure one of
the best bavarian bands EVER! and they're really nice people too because they
bought a copy of DATH, which is btw available now in Japan from Hyper
Enough and I didn't have much to do with it. haha. thanks, Marianne.
is now sold out from me. wow, these went fast.
I still have some copies
lying around here, which wait for a trade to happen or someone to pay for them.
so unless someone jumps off these are gone, sorry. please get them from distros
all over the world, I wrote them all down in the records section and they are
linked in the info section
many people also took some Wishes on
a Plane demos, this is coooooool. we're really grateful

respectively with their next website updates and collective zine as soon as it's
the new Pete the Pirate Squid LP is soooo passionate.

i still don't have "official" pictures of
the DATH+ NO3- comp, but tobi of grave, shovel... let's go has some nice ones
at his blogspace
a lot of comp tapes went out already, some bands still need to write me if
they want distro copies. the rabbit theory, short blooming, i not dance, autumn
in may and grave shovel let's go should have distro copies now. adagio830/bisaufsmesser
will have some copies soon.
I have new Wishes on a Plane shirts

the DATH+ NO3- tape comp is finally out. whohoo! these are EUR 3 at concerts or
4,50 postage paid in Germany, 5 ppd in Europe and 6,50 World. if paying by paypal
please add 20 cents for fees. if you order directly from me you get a personalized
booklet. if you do a distro please get in contact for wholesale or trades. I hope
I can make a few pictures and put them up here because the whole thing turned
out really beautiful. I'm pretty busy assembling all those that go to the bands,

to Süddeutsche Zeitung that will appear in their tuesday's youth part, don't
know what tuesday though. maybe in 1 or 2 weeks
I have new 3-song demo
cds by Wishes on a Plane for distro. these are 3 Euros postage paid to Germany.

may 15 2k7
I just got in a few beautiful records for distro, namely Indian Summer discogaphy
12", Catena Collapse 12", The Birds are Spies 7", Die Emperor Die
7" and Mr Willis of Ohio/I not dance split 12". I could pick up my Rabbit
Theory CDs and 12"s in Munich yesterday so I have these too. Sadly they turned
out somewhat pricy because I had to pay almost EUR 23 fees for the bank transfer.
sorry bout that, wish I had paypaled.
DATH+ NO3- is delayed another three
weeks or something, I decided to send the cassettes back because like half of
those I checked sounded weaker than the other half. I feel like it was too much
work to compromise on that issue. But all covers etc are done so as soon as the
cassettes are back I will start to send them out, sorry to everyone who's waiting.
april 9 2k7
apparently my tape compilation is close to be
out, the masters are at the "pressing plant" (don't know what you call
that institution that makes tapes) and they're already paid so i hope the cassettes
will be here in about 10 days. we spent a lot of time of this and last weekend
copying and assembling booklets, linolcutting, stamping and printing the covers
and cassettesleeves and cutting/folding/glueing the sleeves... no one ever said
diy takes that much time! haha!
anyway I'm so happy about how beautiful this
is going to be, I sadly don't have a camera or scanner to put up pics here now,
hope to get some soon
on other news I'm really excited about my next
release which is a tape of Mr
Willis of Ohio's songs that were intended to be put out on a 7" on Ape
must not kill ape
that record was somehow fucked up by the pressing plant.
I'm going to make 100 tapes
