What seems to be a whole orchestra is actually just a single man and his guitar. But Carl Mathson – the mastermind behind The Lancaster Orchestra doesn’t need more than that to create his melancholic but beautiful sound. Listening for the first time to a live version of “Heart Of Stone” left me starring at the computer screen and wondering how this man could make everything stop for a little while.
Let’s stop again for a second to say: Welcome Carl Mathson, Welcome The Lancaster Orchestra. It’s a pleasure.

Wow – it’s been a while! It’s not as if nothing happened in the meantime – far from it! So in case it slipped out of your attention that The Great Bertholinis released a videoclip for their first single out off their upcoming album “Brothers & Devils” for a while – feel free to watch it now!
A restless night with less than three hours of sleep. The alarm bell. Somnolence. Coffee. Checking news – checking mails. Routine.
Clicking on a mail. Sender : “AHRM”. Clicked on a youtube link. Still somnolent. Listening to the first chords of a song called “All The Bells”. Awake. Instantly. Damn! Wondering why the heck I never heard of them before after I realized that these guys do come from Malmö. The mission: signing these guys!
It’s an addiction. I just cannot stop listening to the 8 tracks of their debut album. Repeat. Satisfying my need.
Their selftitled debut album is going to be released in late summer. On vinyl. Promised!

Circles. I first met the guys of The Great Bertholinis in 2009. Back then Golden Kanine supported one of their shows and Stargazer Records came to life just a couple of months before. This evening turned out to be a game changer, meanwhile Gábór and László Bertholini became constant members of Golden Kanine.
Five years later. I received an email with new Bertholini tunes and the question if I wanna release their upcoming record on Stargazer. These songs blew me away and it seemed to be an obvious decision to make.
Please welcome The Great Bertholinis!!
