DWM always considered itself more of a studio band, which is obvious, but still, on a few occasions DWM received offers to play live that we just couldn't turn down. The complete stories of the concerts are written in detail as liner notes on the releases. Still, with so few concerts in so many years, there is no need to be searching the concert listings in your local paper for a DWM tour. It isn't that we don't want to play live shows, but much more that if we do a live show, we want it to be perfect, so the shows played so far required months of preparation, as each was totally different, with totally different sets played. More to come? Perhaps. Maybe not. Maybe never again. Check our concerts page for more info on DWM live.

Title: Wish Your Wörn't Here
Label: Marginal Talent / EBUs Music Format: Vinyl LP Catalog #: Talent Twentyone (MT-532)/EM066 Release Date: February 10th, 2006
This is a vinyl only album of the concert that DWM performed together with Mr. Ebu in Nuernberg, Germany on January 26th, 2003. Much more experimental than most material by these artists, this album features a handmade cover and is limited to 200, numbered copies. Mr. Ebu performs here as a solo act, one very long track divided into several subsections that is almost hypnotic. DWM here is a two-piece with original members Joseph B. Raimond and Adrian Gormley, performing live versions of such DWM greats as "Wish You Weren't Here" and "Himeola".

Artist: The Doc Wör Mirran Stone Trio!
Label: MissmanagemenT Format: CD Catalog #: Have Eleven (MT-598) Release Date: September 19th, 2017
In the summer of 2016 DWM got together a three-piece instrumental lineup to play a special show on the 23rd of July at the K15 in Augsburg, Germany. For this show, Alex Kammerer played guitar, Stefan Schweiger was on drums and Theramine, and Joseph B. Raimond played his monster guitar and bass double neck with effects and loops. Very "stoner rock" oriented, this guitar dominated set consisted of six well rehearsed tracks that are to date the most guitar oriented work DWM has ever released, mixed together with very experimental, almost "kraut rock" aspects. To highlight the rock aspect of the recordings, this line-up of DWM was given the moniker "stone trio". Professionally mixed and mastered by Alex Kammerer and Schwarzmann, this recording also features the best sound quality of a live DWM recording to date. Stadlmeier, HumanHate666, Acid Discharge and Kopfschmerztablette are featured as special guests on the last, extended experimental track.

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.

Title: Alternative Facts
Label: Marginal Talent Format: LP Catalog #: Talent Twenty Eight (MT-614) Release Date: September 23rd, 2018
What the hell? Recorded live in 1972 in New York at Madison Square Gardens? Frank Zappa, George Harrison and Charles Bukowski among the guest stars? And produced by George Martin to boot? Did DWM really write a song called "Good Loving Gone Bad" and play "Freebird" as an encore? Alternative facts! If Donald Trump can change reality as he likes, so can we! But facts are facts, and we can't change the fact that this was recorded live on October 14th, 2017 at the Provino Club in Augsburg, Germany. Made to look like one of those classic bootleg LPs from the 1970s, complete with unprinted labels and photo-copied cover, about the only thing on the cover that is not an alternative fact are the pictures of DWM on the back in their hippy period. One hundred and four pressed, with a limited numbered edition of 23 copies including grass from Madison Square Gardens. Oops, sorry, no, it's just normal plastic grass. It's just so easy to fall back into alternative facts! Featuring the talents of Adrian Gormley, Stefan Schweiger, Michael Wurzer, Joseph B. Raimond and .mario 23. Backing tracks featuring sound by Conrad Schnitzler, Jello Biafra, Bernard Worrick, Vera and Paul Lemos. Remember, LOVE MUSIC, HATE FASCISM!

Title: Kraut Mask Replica
Label: Grisaille Format: Cassette Catalog #: 08 Release Date: August 2nd, 2020
Although with fewer releases these days than on CD or vinyl, DWM's first releases were cassettes, and to this day DWM still considers itself part of the "cassette culture". This release is also remarkable in another way, as it is the first release to feature photography as cover art, reflecting DWM's increasing interest in this medium. Musically, it was recorded on the 8th of June 2013 at the "Ballonfabriek" in Augsburg, and was the fourth ever DWM concert. Musically more diverse than the later concerts, a few tracks have a slightly more guitar and vocal oriented approach. Personel on this release include Ralf Lexis on guitar and vocals, Stefan Schweiger on drums, Adrian Gormley on sax and Joseph B. Raimond on bass. Special guests on the last, improvised track include Kopfschmerztablette, Niku Senpuki and Emerge. Also available as a download or streamed from Grisaille's Bandcamp page.
