Post subject: P'Faun "The Golden Peacock" - 4th Review
I'm happy to announce that P'Faun's first full album


will be available soon (most likely "in sync" with the E-Live festival in two weeks) as (real!) CD on Ron Boot's label Groove Unlimited.

The album has been in the works (off and on) for more than five years and includes studio versions of most of the songs played in two concerts in 2013 by "Betzler & Brückner" (the earlier version of the band) - plus some more...

The style is (obviously) close to P'Faun's debut EP "Sp'Roque" (and earlier Betzler & Brückner albums) - which means an electronic variety of space rock (or a rocking variety of electronic space... Wink ).

A teaser with some excerpts will be shared soon via YouTube and / or Soundcloud (we're working on that...).

Of course, You can also come and see the band at E-Live, where we're going to play quite a few tracks from the album...

P'Faun is:

Tommy Betzler: electronic & acoustic drums, percussion & gongs

Sammy David: electric and acoustic guitars, bass guitar

Michael Brückner: synthesizer, keyboards, electronics, processed voice

...together with five wonderful musical guests - mentioned in the track list below:

1. So Ham (A Suite) (14;49 min)
...featuring Cilia di Ponte (voice) and Doris Hach (cello)

2. Flying Fish (7:00 min)

3. King Gong (9:15)
...featuring Gerd Weyhing (guitar, looped guitar, bass)

4. House In The Storm - Part 2 (by P'Cock) (10:5Cool

5. Number Five (Is Still Alive) (7:18 min)
...featuring Harald Nies (guitar)

6. P'Quences (14:38 min)
...featuring Rene van der Wouden (synths, keyboards)

7. Blue Pearls - Part 1 (7:23 min)
8. Blue Pearls - Part 2 (7:04 min)

The album was mixed and produced by Michael Brückner & Sammy David and mastered by Hans-Dieter Schmidt.

I'd also like to mention that the wonderful cover painting is by the Brazilian painter and illustrator Luciana Lupe Vasconcelos, who's other (fascinating) work you can admire here:


Here's a low-res version of it (sorry, there's no better one available on the net at the moment I could link to...)


Thanks for Your interest! Smile

Sylvain Lupari wrote a quite positive review of "The Golden Peacock" for his magazine "Synth&Sequences"!!! <3

"The Golden Peacock is another must-have album from (this) trio..."


"For this first album on the Groove label, the descendant of P'Cock offers a brilliant album where the colors of EM get mix to a solid symphonic rock with a surprising musicality. Heavy, incisive and so much catchy, “the golden peacock” follows this curve of creativity that the duo Betzler & Brückner has initiated in 2015 with the album Two."

I'd rather not.
If there's one reviewer of EM on the net I can't take seriously it's Sylvain Lupari. His reviews are inconsistent and unreadable.
Not saying your album is bad, b.t.w. From what I heard I quite liked it.
