The idea for this album was born when Munich-based curator Stefan Nölle invited him to his “Be my Guest” series of jazz events, because Götz immediately thought of a personal, musical retrospective. A time-traveling trip through various releases and genres, he wanted to revisit his own earlier material with other musicians, combine, retell and rework the different approaches and storylines. That’s how the band and this s/t album “Lovebrain’s Rose of Agra, Stringlane and Diskotäschchen, Mount Blakelock und die Orden der Nacht, supported by 85/86 CC, unspoken Space at Kreuz Giesing” were conceived.
All in all, it covers 15 years of musical creations: Having released an album entitled “Lunar oder Solar?” on Jazz N Arts Records with his former 7-piece band Windstärke 4 (4-piece horn section + lower end) back in 2002, Lovebrain and Diskotäschchen revisit both the debut’s title track and the title song of Windstärke 4’s sophomore effort, “Ein Blick ins Spinnennetz”. Five years later, his next project was stylized as RoBErT GoEtZ: Comprised entirely of vocal recordings, the vinyl-only release “Macht Sich Auf Den Weg” came out in 2007 (Swimmingpool Rec.), of which the Diskotäschchen LP features three (two on vinyl) reworked compositions.
Following a bit of a hiatus, it was Micha Acher who reignited the spark when he asked Götz to join Alien Ensemble. And he’s been extremely busy ever since: Dreaming of massive pop success (and failing) with WEITER or finding his many feet again and again with Le Millipede (also signed to Alien Transistor).
In order to retrace this evolution, this creative journey, Mathias Götz has formed his new band Lovebrain’s Rose of Agra, Stringlane and Diskotäschchen, Mount Blakelock und die Orden der Nacht, supported by 85/86 CC, unspoken Space at Kreuz Giesing. It’s a line-up that speaks for itself:
Evi Keglmaier: Viola (Mrs. Zwirbel, Hochzeitskapelle)
Maria Hafner: Violin (Mrs. Zwirbel)
Andreas Höricht: Viola (Modern String Quartett)
Micha Acher: Sousaphone (The Notwist, Alien Ensemble, Hochzeitskapelle, Landlergschwister)
Andy Haberl: Drums, Glockenspiel (The Notwist, Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra)
