„The Ballad Of St. Albans Gaol, Vol. 1"
Also part of the Anglo German Low Stars these two friendly lunatics from sunny St. Albans/UK serve us with trash-folk at it's best!

Mäkkelä of the Anglo German Low Stars with his tour-buddy Mr. Nelson. This is where intense songwriting meets soundloops and odd pop-jewels. An amazing little cd.

„Poems From The Sun”
Three songs making their way between some Martin Newell-ish structures, classical piano spots and strange, flurrying bits crackling in the background.

 The Artists -
 the releases

Why them? Why here? Take this, bastard !

Visions are an essential part of pop-culture. Our opinion. That´s basically one of the reasons why the artists featured on this website are signed to 9pm Records. It´s them and us to share aspects of a vision of pop-music. A vision that goes beyond measuring musical quality by the sales-figures of a release. A vision that popmusic creates an irresistible drive and energy as soon as it starts interacting with other genres of contemporary creativity/pop-culture. This bears all the opportunities for pop to set exclamationmarks, move minds, kick imaginations and break up it's traditional limits.

Another point for these artists is the fact that a label defines itself through it´s signed artists. In our opinion the music we´re aiming to release should be of a strong character even if this means the common music-media or radio formats will most likely ignore such music. That´s part of the show and it characterizes the 9pm Records´ artists and label-catalogue.

And no, we don´t think that this policy will lead straight into commercial success, but in fact it feels right and sooner or later most of you out there will find out that popmusic not necessarily has to be some slick, boring, replacable middle-of-the-road crap. Here´s some information on the releases, free mp3s, the sleeves and an opportunity to buy the records. Help yourself.
