All ye who enter here… go from here with no less than you brought in… May you find the wisdom you seek whether shallow or deep…

(Chinese: 八仙; pinyin: Bāxiān; Wade–Giles: Pa¹-hsien¹) are a group of legendary xian (“immortals; transcendents; saints”) in Chinese mythology. Each Immortal’s power can be transferred to a power tool (法器) that can bestow life or destroy evil. Together, these eight tools are called the “Covert Eight Immortals” (暗八仙 àn ~). Most of them are said to have been born in the Tang or Song Dynasty. They are revered by the Taoists and are also a popular element in the secular Chinese culture. They are said to live on a group of five islands in the Bohai Sea, which includes Penglai Mountain-Island.

Three Days On the Road…

It is a beautiful sunshiny day hear on the road to Stuttgart! It’s been a bit of Ill communication.. No net access, but gotta let all of y’all “Gandy Dancers” know… y’all who came out to see our last three shows, how much we appreciate your presence… Each show has been packed and we are meeting loads of new people.

Supper sound and very professional crew… Thank you.

 “The Candidate”

The new video and first single from “Anti-Solipsism pt.1 Creatures”

“The Candidate” is about the circus-like spectacle of political posturing and the absurd, if not dangerous, nature of power-hungry individuals. History repeats itself as characters engage their quest for domination over man and nature, at once sinister and comical. Everyday people clap joyously as they “vote” for their candidate of choice, an illusory exercise mired by corruption as ink seeps into layers of time. In keeping with Rev. Shine’s style, we looked to the past for relevant commentary on present-day events. –Sarah Price

Director: Sarah Price / Editor: Sean U’ren

We will not be performing any more street shows for the remainder of the festival.

Well enjoy all the great music and hope to see you out there on the road!

Broken English Translation:

After a short audio sample of recent MetaModern Sounds in Country Music , the estimated listeners of Radio couch this time are on the Orange Blossom Special Festivalkidnapped, held every year at Whitsun in the contemplative Beverungen at the Weser.

The loud journal Rolling Stone “best small open-air festival in the world” offers a wide, hand-picked selection of music between supersanftem folk and rock-hard rock – we present that, among other things, the magical-musical medicine men of Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co. of Denmark, the successful Swedish-German Venture Golden Kanine , the wonderful Neil Young Disciples of Dangers Of The Sea , the ravishing Folker Mister and Mississippi from the Netherlands, the U.S. Foothill Stomper Richard Johnston , the subtle harmonies of the Anglo-American couple Rue Royale and the grand Keston Cobblers’ Club of Great Britain. They all did their best in the heat of Pentecost Beverungen – and were even enthusiastic. To listen at on Wednesday, 18/06/2014, 22 clock, and on Saturday, 06/21/2014, at 7 clock on FM 88.4 and 90.7 for Berlin and Potsdam. Enjoy!
