On Monday we received the tragic news that Dieter Moebius has passed away. We at Grönland have had the pleasure to have worked very closely with Dieter in recent years and we will miss him dearly. Dieter was not only an extraordinary musician but also a wonderful person with a very special sense of humor. Our thoughts go out to his family.
We are more than thrilled to announce BOY’s second studio-album which will be released towards the end of August 2015.
It’s title is “We Were Here” and it will be followed by a Club-Tour in September.

Following the release of the 4-cd-box “Who’s That Man – A Tribute To Conny Plank” in the beginning of 2013, we will come up with two more re-releases on the 6th december.
Three tracks from „Les Vampyrettes“ will be released in a limited 3 x 10“ box (including a mobile). Originally issued in 1980, this limited edition EP will delight fan bases beyond that of Connie Plank’s, as the featured musical collaborator in the Les Vampyrettes is none other than the congenial Holger Czukay of the band CAN. It was only released in an edition of 1000 pieces and sold out since then. The EP also comes as a 12″ blue vinyl including a fold-out poster.
Additionally Holger Czukays album „On The Way To The Peak Of Normal“ will be re-released. This record will be a kick-off for more re-releases of out-of-print albums from the Holger Czukay back catalogue. A small amount of „On The Way To The Peak Of Normal“ comes as picture vinyl, rest as white vinyl.
