    label: exile on mainstream

    “Uhr vs. Zeit” is an album full of honesty, wisdom and poetry, fuelled by experience and a life lived by and beyond the limits. The songs colour an approach to storytelling in its truest sense, sung and harmonised in his native language, German, but so deep and soulful that everyone will be able to relate and feel. While he is rolling a wreath of songs off his tongue, Friedemann extols an attitude in songwriting that leaves behind your traditional narrative approach and meta-level storytelling. In Friedmann, we don’t have a singer/songwriter who remains on the safe side while taking a third-person perspective rather, he almost radically unsheathes his own soul and life history into the lyrics. Well known as singer and lyricist behind the German Hardcore act COR – stalwarts of an uncompromising and strict D.I.Y attitude, who run their own label, booking and distribution – Friedemann has been earning merits for being one of the most true and independent figures in the German music underground. He would never mince matters by revealing political statements through music and his fans loyally appreciate these views, not taking side or being streamlined by day to day politics. The album was recorded and produced by Friedemann himself with help from friends like Janko Moede, Conny Ochs, who lends guitar and vocals to the track “Vogel”, partners in COR such as guitarist Pilse, bassist Matze and drummer Johannes.
