May 2008 : Cluster LIVE on the air!

Here it is... Our sub-par interview with Cluster. Ha. Well it is what it is. We were so busy getting the tour together and then operating and managing the tour and the band that we barely our brains together to ask them Intelligent Questions. Ah well... We did get a bit of oral history later after the mics were off (of course) as did Bucky and Marcus who were helping with the tour and ended up taking the duo out to dinner at Blue Plate while AC was getting ready for DONUTS! at the Knockout - which Roedelius DJd !!!


Photos from DONUTS on May 26th with DJ Roedelius of Cluster!

Roedelius and Moebius love DONUTS!

Cluster live at Henry Miller Library on May 23rd (with visuals on the surrounding redwoods!)

Oh wait - there's a much better interview than ours here:

And our friend and ex-AQ employee Jeff conducted an audio-only interview with Roedelius in the fall of 2007 and the 1st part is here:

March Madness

Due to intensive scheduling for the upcoming CLUSTER tour, Allan and AC failed to do a new show for March 2008. SCHWOOPS. We apologize to our at least three fans!! :(

BUT hopefully some of you made it to one or more of our shows that were part of the CLUSTER CALIFORNIA TOUR 2008! Each show was held in an unusual venue (for this type of music anyways) and featured a totally different lineup of openers for Cluster. After each show they got to meet their enthusiastic, multi-generational audience and loved it!

We had a bunch of people filming the tour for us and hopefully will be able to put out a dvd in the future. Yeah!

In the meantime here are a couple videos people shot that we found online:

Yes, AC tried to play a youtube video. [I'm sorry.] It was purely due to the fact that the Popul Vuh soundtrack to Werner Herzog's short film about the Swiss ski-jumper Steiner (Great Ecstasy of Sculptor Steiner) isn't available anywhere as far as I can tell. If anyone knows if the soundtrack has ever been released on anything, please let us know!! It's one of the greatest, most dynamic soundtracks in relation to the imagery I've ever heard. Been looking for info on it for ages.... There's a reuse of the imagery in a music video made by LA band Health which doesn't have the same impact as the film (with Herzog's uber-tense hero-development of Steiner) but I suppose it's flattering!

Yeay! Our permanent show page can be found at our rad little community pirate radio station in SF called West Add Radio. There are different shows on there for all sortsa music and entertainment tastes : italo, boogie, gemini disco, oldies & soul, grime, space-trance, death-metal, rock, minimal techno, gentlemans techno, drug talk radio, pancakes, donuts and more.

Feel free to send us your music for radio play! You can send it to Allan's attention at aQuarius Records, 1055 Valencia Street, SF CA 94103 USA c/o KLAUS TO THE EDGE. It won't be a guarantee that we can play it right when you send it, but you never know.
