creative stew. Most of this material is still unreleased. We even planned on

We just received the heartbreaking news that our good friend Bernd de
Payrebrune recently passed away, shortly before Christmas. A friend of
Joseph B. Raimond's for more than thirty years, they met just weeks before
his death at the anual Geleriehaus Nord Christmas exhibiton in Nürnberg,
where both artists exhibited some of their paintings. Never really a member
of DWM, he was the main coordinator of the Nürnberg area art group "ANA
Orchester", which, besides countless art exhibitions and concept
performances, also collaborated with DWM at their first two live shows ever,
the most memorable of which was when DWM opened for Sonic Youth and Sean
Lennon in 1996 in Munich, where the ANA members played sewing machines
onstage together with DWM. This was Bernd's idea, and is documented on the
DWM/Tesendalo/ANA Orchester live 10" album "Sewing Me,
Sewing You". Always jolly and willing to share his contacts and full of
ideas, he was a refreshing change to the usual arrogant and snobbish artist
jealous of his connections that one usually finds in the modern art world.
He will be very missed. His funeral will be on coming Monday at the Nürnberg
Westfriedhof Krematorium at 10:30 a.m.

of Stefan Schweiger on drums and teramine, Alex Kammerer on guitar and Joseph
B. Raimond on bass and synth. This time, we will be concentrating on instrumental
experimental rock, and will also present our next CD release, "We Sting The
Blues", a three-song collaboration with Rat Scabies of the Damned.

are very saddened to hear of the death of our friend Eric Hysteric a few days
ago. Eric, together with his bands The Vomit Visions and later, Der Durstige Mann,
was a huge influence on both the developement of DWM and of the founding of the
various labels under MT Undertainment. He, more than anyone, lived the punk rock
ideal that everyone can be a star, play his own music without compromising himself,
release his own records himself, and be totally independent. He played guitar
on various early DWM recordings after we moved to the Nuernberg area, and in fact,
our 7" vinyl single "Quickly Skitzo", released by Forced Exposure,
actually should have been released as a single by "DWM featuring Eric Hysteric",
as he plays on the whole record and was instrumental in writing the songs. We
have long considered righting this wrong with a remixed collection of these and
other recordings that he played on. Perhaps we will get to this project someday.
We were also honoured in being able to design the cover of his third and last
solo LP "Fuer Dich", which, like all his recordings, came out on his
own label Wasted Vinyl, later Orgasm Records. Some of the more memorable and funny
experiences with Eric will be documented in an upcoming book project by Joseph
now is "Mörtel Mächine Müsic",
a one-sided, clear vinyl 10", limited to 23 copies.
In A(nnoy)", our final DWM release for this year has just been released

found to be missing.

in Augsburg. Although of practice room quality, there are still some good moments
here, and is probably the most DWM has ever sounded like a real live "band".
Released on Hand-made.
look at our DWM discography page will tell you, that
DWM has recorded much more than they were ever able to release. We have therefore
decided to try and release more in the coming months, to get some of the many
backlogged projects out. This will include not only CD/CDr releases, but also
MP3 and book releases. "Themes For Walden" was the first of many planned
releases coming. The next is also now out: "Happy As A Target" is a
3" CD, on black plastic, packaged in a small box, released on our Hand-made
label.. Another "Odds, Sods And Dirtclods" type of collection, it features
individual tracks that were recorded at many different times, in different styles,
with many of the DWM members over the years. At least two more releases will be
coming still in 2013.

The DWM concert
in Augsburg was a huge success. We met a lot of new friends there and reaquainted
ourselves with several old friends as well. We played several guitar based pieces,
as well as two more ambient works, the last of which featured guest performances
by Emerge, Kopfschmerztablette and Niku Senpuki. The event was recorded, and will
probably be released at some point as a live album. Also, at least one video is
online at Youtube for those of you who want to finally see what we look like!
after another wait of many years, DWM will indeed be playing live again. Check
us out in Augsburg on the eighth of June at the Ballonfabrik. We will be doing
a set mixed with experimental and more guitar based tracks, and will feature a
few guests as well. The DWM lineup will be Joe on bass, Stephan on drums, Ralf
on guitar, Alex on guitar and Adrian on sax.
new DWM full length album has been released on CD-R by
Circuit, a fine label from Augsburg, Germany. Recorded in the 1990s at the

and world music. It features a very nice full color cover printed on rice paper
and inserted into a special box.
Also out on Attenuation Circut
is one of their newest label samplers. Impedance features a new DWM recording
with our new "live" lineup, and is exclusive to this release.

and the first of several releases in 2012, comes "Eat Your Art Out",
part two in the Western Haiku series. Out now.
soon is "Mask", the first DWM release on the fine
Circuit label our of Augsburg. Recorded almost twenty years ago, it will feature
fine cover artwork and packaging, for which AC is well known for.
now is "Laughing At Nudity", the first book in a planned series of small
pocket books written by Joseph B. Raimond devoted to what many refer to as "Western
Haiku". Different than the traditional Japanese Haiku, which feature three
lines each and a specific number of syllables per line, Western Haiku can have
a free amount of syllables per line, but still keep the format of three line poetry.
As most of the books are already written, look for more to be released soon.
took a lot of work and research, but we finally have our page
devoted to the many cassettes released on eMpTy and Masking Tapes online.
B. Raimond will again be showing some of his newest graphic works at the traditional
December group show at the Galeriehaus
Nord in Nuernberg. This time they will be pages from his current book project

Already working hard on the next release, working title "Gosia", probably
out early 2012.
Two new Joseph B. Raimond book projects due
soon. Both feature what he refers to as "Western Haiku", which, like
the traditional Japanese Haiku poetry, feature only three lines. However, Western
Haiku are not limited to a set amount of sylables. Both books, titled "Laughing
At Nudity" and "Eat Your Art Out", include roughly 300 pieces,
and are the first in a series of books featuring Western Haiku by Joseph B. Raimond.
bit of good news for once. Two new DWM CD releases will be out very soon on our
MissmanagemenT label, our label devoted to free CDs. The first is "Retch",
a collection of assorted tracks recorded over the years slated for various projects
that for one reason or another never came out, and featuring guitar by Michael
Schultz Pernice, who, as reported below, died earlier this year. Release date
is August 22nd, 2011.
The second release, which will be out
about four weeks later, is "Do Quermi Ran", a collection of new tracks
recorded in the first half of 2011. Featuring new members Alex Kammerer and Stefan
Schweiger, they are joined by long time DWM members Ralf Lexis and Joseph B. Raimond.
More of a real "band" than DWM has ever been, this release features
ten blistering rock instrumental tracks. And going with the flow of inspiration
that this lineup is experiencing, the follow up CD is also about half recorded
at the time of this writing. We hope to add Adrian Gormley on sax and other wind
instruments to this lineup next year when he moves to Germany. There is even a
bit of talk about a concert or two.
we have to announce the death of yet another DWM member. Michael Schultz-Pernice
died on April 4th, 2011 after a long illness. Besides playing some of the most
blistering guitar solos ever to be heard on a DWM record, he also played guitar
for years in Prime Sinister.
He was one of the best guitarists ever to come out of the Nuernberg music scene,
and will be missed by his many friends and family.
is with great sadness that we have to report the death of
Rift on March 22, 2011, aged 57. His death was due to serious complications
from diabetes which he had been battling for well over a decade. In the early
1990s Musical Tragedies released several albums
by Zoogz, and he also guested on guitar on a few DWM tracks.
wishes everyone a happy and healthy new year. We also wish our buddy and long-time
member Bernard H. Worrick, a very happy birthday today out there in Florida.
have finished and put online a few more pages devoted to our releases. This time,
check out our vinyl singles on MT Undertainment,
and CDs on Musical Tragedies pages. We will continue
working on catching up documenting all our releases, and hope to have this part
of the homepage finished in early 2011.
Other plans for this
new year include getting the next MissmanagemenT release out, which will be "Retch".
Later in the year we hope to put out another title in this series. We also hope
to release the first book of Haiku writings by Joseph B. Raimond. So stay tuned.

new and old members of DWM have been jamming and recording in our practice room
recently, the same room in which The Pisstons rehearse. We have set up all our
recording equipment in there now and have already recorded and mixed a track for
a one sided single to be released very soon. This will be "After Snakes Came
To Nuzzle", and is the second part in the "More Songs About Snakes And
Fish" series and will come out on Marginal Talent. It will come with a very
special cover and label design, so don´t miss out on it, as there will not
be many made.
Other tracks have been recorded as well and we
are working on what will become a new full length album. In contrast to virtually
all other DWM releases, this one will feature real drums. Working title is "Sonic
Doctors", but this might change. We will give this recording a high priority
for release, so look for it sometime in 2011.
Many new pages
with info on older releases have been added to the site as well, so check out
what is new at our releases page.
page devoted to our MissmanagemenT releases

We finally have our re-vamped e-gallery online.

next DWM title in our MissmanagemenT series will be out soon. It is our "Kuenstlergruppe"
album, recorded at about the same time as "Guitarred And Feathered",
and like that title, features a real mix of musical styles, from industrial to
punk to shitkicker country, all cooked together in the DWM garage style you have
all have grown to love.
A new DWM album has just finished mixing
and mastering. It will be called "RAJ Instrumental", and features nine
instrumental tracks recorded by Ralf, Adrian and Joe, hence the title. Look for
it on MissmanagemenT at the beginning of 2011 if all goes well.
a new DWM mini CD has been finished, but as yet is untitled. It will be released
as a 5 inch CD-R on our Handmade label.
In regards to our homepage,
we have begun redesigning the various pages of our releases. Check out the pages
devoted to DWM editions, the Witches project and our CD releases on other labels.
We hope to finish the new pages for all the DWM releases this year.
the way, all Hand-made releases now feature new, full color labels instead of
the older black and white paper labels. The older releases as well have new label
designs, so if you have one of the older releases with a paper label and would
like to new CD-R, just let us know and we will send it out to you.
finally the dwmirran.de homepage is online! We have been working on the layout
and the content of the site, and hope to bring it fully up to date soon.
next two installments of our MissmanagemenT series of free CDs are now out.
Portrait Of Your Death" is a live CD of the third ever DWM live show, this
time in 2007 at the John Peel Festival in Koeln. The self titled CD is a re-recording
and remix of our first ever release, our self titled cassette release from 1984.
Released exactly twenty five years after the cassette version, this CD is the
first in a series of re-recordings and remix CDs that are planned for MissmanagemenT.
Like all MissmanagemenT CDs, they are totally free, all you have to do is ask!
2009 slowly comes to a close we realize that DWM has put out quite a few new releases
this year, none of which are mentioned here on the homepage. We will try to rectify
that situation. Soon, this page will have it's own internet address: www.dwmirran.de
. We are working on it, but it isn't quite finished yet. We have been busy getting
the last finishing touches on our 25 year anniversary release finished before
we devote more time to the homepage.
not long ago is our mammoth project "Ambiall", a massive ten CD-R set.
This was the first release to feature our new label designs. We have gone from
cheapo paper labels that seemed to strike with many CD players to a very nice,
full color printed CD. We are also using the most expensive and best quality CDs
for our releases now. Anyway the release features ten, one hour long ambient tracks,
and comes in a special full color box.
We have updated the
discography and concerts page.
The Penetraitors have changed
their name to The Pisstons. After their singer Kuebel left the band because getting
drunk in Berlin was more important than being in a band, guitarrist Jojo has increased
his role in the band to include vocals. The results are 1000% better, and due
to the marked increase in quality, the band decided a new name would .
