Title: Technodelia

Label: Clockwork Tapes Format: CD-R Catalog #: CT-21 Release Date: January 29th, 2015

Much quieter and, as one reviewer put it, somehow happier than the usual DWM recording, this is a keyboard dominated release, and even touches a bit in the direction of tdrum and bass. Release on the revived and revamped Clockwork Tapes label out of Nuernberg, it is a limited, numbered edition of forty copies, each featuring a unique, one of a kind postage stamp depicting artwork by Joseph B. Raimond. The artwork itself is glued into the packaging, a special CD mailing envelope. Only available by mail from Clockwork Tapes, get it while you can. After the CD is sold out, will be rereleased as in MP3 format only. Featuring the work of Joseph B. Raimond, Stefan Schweiger, Cedric Raimond, Ralf Lexis, Michael Wurzer and .mario.

Title: Covfefe Live

Label: Clockwork Tapes Format: Cassette Catalog #: CT- 22 Release Date: April 22nd, 2018

This almost 50 minute long recording was recorded live at the Braille Satellite Festival near Vilnius, Lithuania on Saturday, July 27th, 2017. After a two-day road trip through Poland and getting slightly lost in Belarus, only to be turned back to Poland at gunpoint ( a bit of exageration here! Actually, the Belarus border police and their guns were very friendly!), DWM finally arrived at the beatifully green festival grounds and very hungry mosquitos and put on a fantastic set of spaced out expermimental DWM noise. A journalist there later wrote that DWM was the "highlight so far of the festival season"! Featured on this recording are Stefan Schweiger on teramine and samples, Michael Wurzer on synth and samples, and Joseph B. Raimond on guitar and bass, with Harald Sack Ziegler guesting on french horn on the last two tracks. Musically, this recording features a live version of the 2017 studio recording "Covfefe", a statement to the challenging political landscape we find ourselves in in the first part of the 21st century. Not recommended for repulicans, Brian Ladd, Ted Nugent or other forms of right wing political and moral retardation. Limited edition of 16 copies, recorded on an orange plastic C-60 cassette, and packaged in an old automobile cassette player which was hand painted by Michael Wurzer.
