restrictions, concerts have been cancelled/rescheduled - please check
concert dates. Stay healthy!
Here is a short and snappy interview that Phil did with
Directors Lounge curator Kenton Turk when they ran into each other at Prague's
Dox Gallery a couple of years ago. Dim Locator had played the Directors Lounge
in 2013 at a screening of the Rowland S. Howard biopic
"Autoluminiscent" and the interview refers back to this. It has just
been posted on the Directors Lounge homepage: https://directorslounge.net/dl-featurillo-4-phil-shoenfeld-gb/
THE MISSION concerts with special guest DIM LOCATOR (originally dated
4th and 5th of April), are now rescheduled to 27th and 28th March 2021
Check out the cover version of Phil's song "Black
Rain" on Harry Stafford's fantastic new album "Gothic Urban
Blues". Harry's legendary band Inca Babies played at the 2019 Drug Me
Fest, along with Dim Locator, Kill The Dandies and many others. His version of
"Black Rain" is excellent, and the album is a genuine classic. https://www.facebook.com/harrystaffordUK/
A great video by Harry Stafford from his wonderful new
album "Gothic Urban Blues": His version of Phil's song "Black
Rain", from the 1993 CD "God Is The Other Face Of The Devil".
The video was mainly shot in the streets and bars of Manchester, but also
features two segments filmed with Phil at last summer's Drug Me Fest in Prague.
Really powerful and atmospheric.
Dim Locator are special guest for two shows of The Mission in Prague:
New album "Cassandra Lied" by Phil Shoenfelt - out now
Phil Shoenfelt's new solo album Cassandra Lied was recorded in Prague between
August 2018 and November 2019. He was joined in this endeavour by
several notable musicians, including band-mate and co-producer Chris
Hughes (drummer with These Immortal Souls, Mick Harvey, Hugo Race,
Alexander Hacke) and lapsteel guitarist Kristof Hahn of Swans. Marcia
Schofield, Eva Turnová and Baron Anastis sang backing vocals, and
Anastis played some ace bass on “The Man Who Sold The World”.
departure from Phil‘s previous work,
Cassandra Lied has a lyrical depth which is comparable to the work of
rock poets such as Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed and Patti Smith. The music
itself is closer to the layered, atmospheric approach of artists like
Brian Eno, David Bowie and Tony Visconti than it is to traditional rock
dynamics. Other influences on this album are post-punk bands such as Joy
Division and Krautrock bands Neu and La Düsseldorf.
Cassandra Lied is released on January 10th on the Sireena label, and
will be available at online shops such as Amazon and at regular retail
outlets via Broken Silence distribution.
