Yes, I was a Punk in the 80ies! But now I´m a “SWING PUNK”! Here some electroswinged impressions to these phony-baloney two-faced brains. Song taken from the recent album “Circus Maximus”, Brenda Boykin on vocals. Good night, John Boy and thanks to Resolume/Lucidhouse!

An expanding music venture in a global scale
For years, TAPE FIVE has expanding global record sales and millions of Spotify streams, it´s albums frequently appear in the top 40 charts of the big international online-retailers…
after a long time of production, the ***** 5th TAPE FIVE ***** album is ready!
Now the Grand Wazoo and the Holy Grail have to decide about the release date – to synchronize it with the astrological super-universe! I wait in peace …
…while working with much fun on the 5ths album, which will be very strong – this is the recent stuff, and I hope you already know it …have a listen at iTunes, Amazon or Spotify! Although a download is the environmental cleanest solution – with a CD you get the most TAPE FIVE output in your hands (at least my opinion) Cheers!
TAPE FIVE octet live plus dancers and video animation as the “SWING WITH BLING” show
in the wonderful classical concert hall Philharmonie Essen/ Germany on September 28th.

Feels Like a Gipsy
This song is about freedom and is born from that feeling!
Anybody who has been on the road knows that feeling to be homeless, the travelling, and searching for a place to rest.
…with singers like Henrik Wager (our Bad Boy Goodman), Dionne Wudu (our new Black Beauty), Brenda Boykin (our Swing Weapon) and Iain Mackenzie (our British Gentleman) and of course the TAPE FIVE horn section, I even dug out my old Talk-Box and re-animated my guitar fx-rack. “I´m glad that I´m able to put some of my stupid aggressions into the music…” – so fasten your seat belts and be prepared! peace, I have to go back into the studio!*
***The album “Bossa for a Coup” available again as “RELOADED” version plus bonus tracks…March 14th***
The mellow album from 2007 with some fine chilled Bossa and tracks like Cancun or Soulsalicious is sold out at the moment…The idea was to refresh it a bit (new mastered/new mixed) and add some mixes like the radio edit of “Love on a Rainy Day”, the Bossa for a Coup remix and the brandnew version of “Taxi to Bombay” with the Bollywood flute player Dinesh Mishra. His spirit on his “wind instruments” brought tears to my eyes…
Dear Audience, in connection with creating a Spotify VIP account I found Twitter – and its not too bad but decide yourself….
