CAUSE WE ARE LEGION.
RIDERS OF THE APOCALYPSE.
Let us therefore proclaim that:
I. We renounce the misconception of apocalypse, the mistranslation of ἀποκάλυψις (apokálupsis), as it’s officially coined, but accept it for the double entendres.
In the abundance of bad manners, we welcome a true Welsh gentleman in our midst. The (allegedl) former illegal club-owner turned family man with escape fantasies has the magic touch on the camera trigger. His stunning photographies, made with analogue and digital equipment, capture the essence of moments in time. Viewers are invited to re-experience the emotions inside his photographs, or the impressions they themselves project onto his work.
Once you notice, the sensation of getting goosebumps is equated with an orgasm, the chosen name for her role in this takes on super-awkward dimensions. But it is how it is. We decided to treat this subject with full transparancy. It attests to the capacity of her singing organs, when each and everyone in her audience leaves fully satisfied. Yes. Pun intended. There's nothing to be ashamed of. Just let it happen.
Bands always persist on being a union. We want to support that notion – that way, we don't need to introduce them individually. Somewhere between avantgardist stoner-rock, post-grunge, trip-hop and RnB – pretty much the whole range of modern music – there's potential hearing loss for everyone.
Appearances can be deceiving. There`s an old soul beneath that naivety. Part girl next door, part beauty icon, part witch, always good for that unexpected, oftentimes creepy moment. Her paintings are spells, the true nature of which she doesn`t even know herself. Or does she? We`ll never find out. Alive.
The (insert any flattering adjective) Heidi single handedly built an empire on her own with her Bündnertuch. An extremely versatile fabric, able to take many forms, see why we wanted to team up with her? We couldn't possibly say anything cynical, but we have to. Somewhere underneath that perfection must be a dark secret. For now, this is strictly a theory.
A man, who’s way too humble for his abilities in all of the arts. He could easily afford to be much more out of touch with reality, as we keep telling him. But there’s no way of changing his mind. We tried. "Small is big" is the overarching theme of his work, making some insecure. The only explanation is, he's got absolutely nothing to compensate.
Confronted with a life’s career such as hers, one can only aspire to achieve her degree of independence and freedom that allowed her to master the arts of sculpting, painting and calligraphy. A woman, who knows what she wants, and kept doing precisely that. The only boarders being the ones, she created, and dissolved, if they kept her inside a box that wasn’t of her liking.
World famous photographer & artist, natural genius with the accumulated experience of multiple careers in practice. The nostalgia of his exploits is only surpassed by his unwillingness to retire within the next couple of decades. Living proof that staying young at heart can act as aqua viatae. He’s also a hellbent driver.
More than anyone, he knows, how life can shatter dreams like porcelain. The first one to believe in this madness. Doesn’t it make him mad as well? Masterful painter and business man. One who turned every blowback into the profit of a life lesson, and kept his ability to reinvent himself.
It's only reasonable to carry a gun with you, after you survived two murder attempts. It must have been due to his intimidating presence, the fear he allegedly struck into his peers. But beneath the menacing facade was a creative soul, wanting to share his work with the world, and be loved for his artistic, not reduced on his industrial prowess.
Self-proclaimed and published author, word smith and somehow artist and composer, too? A jack-of-many-traits so to speak, without any of these skills being overly developed, according to third parties, when asked. Simply a trickster for pretending, he didn`t write his own bio.
Merely creates art because he`s bored and wants to become immortal. As sculptor, painter and overall master of materials, he also wouldn`t mind to get rich, doing what he loves because it`s borderline-insincere to call oneself master of materials, when you`re constantly broke. Facts.
