wino and conny ochs Heavy Kingdom (LP, £12.95)label: exile on mainstream
*The Legacy of Scott “Wino” Weinrich in the world of heavy music is indisputable. Many have postulated his influence in the underground rock scene over the last decades. But it’s not only his musical craftmanship that makes the man the underground hero he is. His connection to fans, his dedication and love for what he’s doing and how he treats people around him makes him the exceptional artist he is. *After both recorded an infamous ‘Latitudes’ session in London by the end of the 2010 tour it was now time for a full album. And here you have it: 11 soulful tunes that speak for themselves, personalities shine, truth within. All songs got written and performed by Wino and Conny together. *The album contains one cover song by Townes Van Zandt – an artist Conny an Wino deeply admire. 4 of the songs the both wrote on one day in Berlin in Summer 2011, among them “Heavy Kingdom” which marks the first song they ever wrote together. Rise was given to the other songs and the whole record with a first recording session in August 2011 – guess where? At the Baltic Sea on Rügen island on exactly that beach party/ jam session/ hang out where we first met Conny.
