it’s the White Album for Voodoo Rhythm… the Dead Brothers origin from Geneva in Switzerland mix up gipsy music with swing Django Gipsy jazz Rock’n’Roll and Country and and and…Just a crazy mixture of every thing and played in a strange weird way…

Something like 7 years ago the Dead Brothers starting going on this Funeral Orchestra Mission and I started to put out their records. With the first record ‘Dead Music for Dead People’ everybody was shocked but the Stone started to Roll then the second Record ‘day of the dead’ was a bit a strange record but people started to open their ears and on the 3rd record they did a movie soundtrack for the Tattoo Legend Herbert Hofmann ‘Flamend Herz’ who had not one vocal track on it…. And now in those 7 years it went up and down like a rollercoaster they went to Heaven and they went to Hell as well they almost split up then they did another European tour ,played Jazz Festival Montreux, did England a several times and and and… then they went to Bob Drake a American Country Outsider who has a farm in the South of France and he records with his primitive Equipment the new Album of the DEAD BROTHERS and this Record is the Shit, it’s incredible how they worked together and for the first time in Band history you hear the Characters of the Whole band and believe me they are strange characters…

But anyway this is THEE Dead Brothers Album at the Moment and with TRUST IN ME they even have a ‘real’ Hit Song on it... on Greek Swing you here Pierre’s fantastic Guitar playing and on “Time Has Gone” Delaney’s ultra desperate voice... Fred is Homage on Fred Stutz their former Tuba Player... and on every Song are the Fucked up and Schizophrenic vocals of Dead Alain and the incredible trumpet of Christoph Garnert.

There is also a video clip for “TRUST IN ME” made by marc littler

 

GERMAN:

Die dritte reguläre Platte des Schweizer Beerdigungsorchesters auf Voodoo Rhythm. In gewohntem Down-Tempo interpretieren die DEAD BROTHERS elf Lieder aus verschiedenen Traditionen. Diesmal gibt es unter anderem einen Blues-Stomp ("Old pine box"), Swing der 20er Jahre ("Greek swing"), eine Arabeske ("Mustapha"), ein Shanty, Jazziges, das von Marlene Dietrich popularisierte Friedrich Holländer-Stück "Wenn ich mir was wünschen dürfte" ( heißt hier "Marlene") und zum Abschluss eine Hillbilly-Nummer ("Fred") in Angedenken an ein früheres Bandmitglied. Dabei bleibt das Album erstaunlich homogen. Dafür verantwortlich ist der DEAD BROTHERS-Sound, instrumentiert mit Trompete, Akkordeon, Banjo, singender Säge, Schlagzeug und so weiter und so fort. Darüber weben sich die unwiderstehliche Stimme von Dead Alain ("Trust in me ... you can sleep safe ... slowly but surely your sense will cease to resist" aus dem eingängigsten, fast schon poppigen Stück "Trust in me") und das genial-kaputte Organ von Dead Delaney ("Time has gone"). "Wunderkammer" könnte tatsächlich das "Weiße Album" der Band werden. Es ist definitiv ein Höhepunkt des noch jungen Musik-Jahres, und nicht nur für Voodoo Rhythm/DEAD BROTHERS-Aficionados. Neben der neuen Platte und der anstehenden Tour, gab es Ende Februar in Basel auch die Premiere des DEAD BROTHERS-Dokumentar-Films "Death Is Not The End" (slowboatfilms.com). Pflichtkauf für Fans und Sympathisanten; Reinhörpflicht für alle anderen! (OX Magazine 09/10) Andreas Härther
