oh what a night...
Tom Liwa (DE)
So, world traveller, barefoot or shoed, wide awake or tired, rest your head and soul with us, listen and rejoice in the immense beauty and frugal eccentricity of this, Tom's music.
He, Tom Liwa (Flowerpornoes) has approximately a quarter century of music and
about 25 albums under his belt. Our local hero from the rubberneck Kanton
has culminated his trilogy, penning first "Komm Jupiter" (with the 'Blauen
Flecken'), dann "Eine Liebe ausschliesslich" (without the 'Blauen Flecken'), now
with the brand new "Goldrausch", sans Flecken again, all by himself. A big fat
nugget it is and he transformed it into a golden egg, hatched and laid down in
10 days and all without any superficial bling bling, shine or attitude. The new
credo is: No tricks, no strategy - nada, zilch, zero. Liwa's songs are pulsating
and dancing, they come from where and when life turns our ears red and
gets them wagging. He hears better than most - and now, so can you.

With "Günther geht, Anna kommt", he presents themes that enter right into your
own four walls. Come to think of it, "Krähen zählen" might morbidly, but quite
naturally, be followed by something like Kreislers "Tauben vergiften im Park".
But, of course, we sincerely hope that that will not come to life. His music is about mundane stuff like waiting, patience, getting back up on one's feet and moving on. In these songs, you'll hear hot and heavy declarations of love, reminiscing about happy moments in "Honig und Laub" and raw and honest emotions in the words for "Yoyo". Here, the ukulele replaces the guitar and, together with cello, bass and percussion, injects a wonderful lightness into these magical songs. So, world traveller, barefoot or shoed, wide awake or tired, rest your head and soul with us, listen and rejoice in the immense beauty and frugal eccentricity of this, Tom's music.
