At the invitation of New York Junk, Phil will be participating in a live streaming Event from Bowery Electric in NYC on 26th January at 8pm (New York time). The Event is to celebrate the release of New York Junk's latest album "Dreaming" and Phil will be joining New York Junk and more than a dozen international bands and artists to wish the album bon voyage. The release date coincides with Cynthia B-Girl's birthday, so we'll all be wishing her "HAPPY BIRTHDAY CYNTHIA!!!"
Some of the acts - including New York Junk - will be playing live at Bowery Electric, others will be giving virtual performances: in Phil's case direct from his apartment in Prague - Žižkov.

Dim Locator's concert in Ebensee has been recorded and was broadcasted as streaming on 21st October on Austrian radio station Freies Radio Salzkammergut. Fantastic live sound and mix! It will be repeated on Friday, 23th October at 02:05 PM (14:05). https://freiesradio.at/live-stream/
||The Cut-Up that Phil made of the interview with Dim Locator in the Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung (see News 29/9/2020) will be published in the next edition of Alienist Manifesto (edited by Prof. Louis Armand of the Philosophic Faculty of Charles University, Prague):
Prague-based American author and journalist Thor Garcia has written a
fantastic retrospective review of the1995 "Live In Prague" CD by Phil
Shoenfelt with Tichá Dohoda - he says it's one of his favourite CDs!
It's just been posted on Goodreads - check it out, it's a BRILLIANT and perceptive piece of rock criticism, a literary masterpiece in its own right!
Furthermore, Phil provided two new writings for the website:
I Will Be Your Mirror - The Cosmos As Great Narcissist
Beeing On The Beat - Liner notes for the forthcoming Moloko + compilation CD
Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross update:
"Due to the Covid/quarantine situation at the Czech-German border, Berliners Kristof Hahn and Chris Hughes will not be at Rock Cafe on Thursday 01.10.2020. The show will go ahead as planned with Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross, but will start at the earlier time of 7:30 due to the legally enforced closing time of 10:00. One hundred seated people (wearing face masks) can be accomodated in the concert hall while staying within the government-imposed regulations. PS & SC will be playing several new songs from Phil's latest CD "Cassandra Lied". No matter how many people attend, we intend to have fun and project an upbeat and life-affirming energy to counteract the widespread fear many people are feeling at the moment. KEEP ROCK AND ROLL LIVE AND ALIVE!"
||In case you're wondering,
here is an update to let you know what's going on with gigs lately. Needless to
say, it's all a bit chaotic because of the Covid situation.
Whether you believe it's bullshit or not, the fact is that since last Wednesday several countries have designated Czech Republic as a "Covid Hot Zone". Phil had driven to Berlin on Monday 7/9 to practice with Dim Locator for concerts at Fluc in Vienna and the UniMoon Festival in Prague. Luckily, he was already in Berlin when the German Foreign Ministry put Prague in the "red zone". Therefore, he avoided having to go into quarantine for several days. The problem the band faced was that if they played the UniMoon Festival in Prague, the Berlin members (Chris Hughes, Baron Anastis and Daniel Plashues, plus special guest Kristof Hahn of Swans) would have had to get PCR tests before returning to Berlin and go into quarantine for several days until they got the results. This they could not afford to do. Therefore, the band decided to drive to Vienna via Leipzig, Regensburg and Passau, avoiding Czech Republic entirely. This meant a drive of 940 Kms for one concert in Vienna, but it was a fantastic concert anyway! Thanks to Peter Nachtnebel at Fluc and the wonderful Viennese audience!
On Friday the Berliners drove back to Berlin via Passau, again avoiding Czech Republic, while Phil re-entered the country via Znojmo and played the UniMoon festival on Saturday night with Band Of Heysek from Brno backing him. Another fantastic concert, and many thanks to Lukáš, Bob and Honza for helping out at the last minute. They are a GREAT band, you should check them out.
As for the Southern Cross gig at Rock Cafe on October 1st - as of now, the concert is going ahead. But it is doubtful if Kristof Hahn and Chris Hughes will make it, due to the aforementioned Covid/quarantine problems at the German-Czech border. We will keep you posted on this. But as of now the concert with Southern Cross at Rock Cafe is going ahead, with or without Chris and Kristof.
KEEP ROCK MUSIC LIVE AND TO HELL WITH ALL THOSE POLITICIANS AND BUREAUCRATS WHO WANT TO KILL THE SCENE UNDER THE GUISE OF "PROTECTING" US FROM COVID!!!
Prague-based author Thor Garcia has just written an excellent review of Cassandra Lied on his brilliant, informative and very entertaining blog page, which you can find at Goodreads through the link below. Thor's recent book-length tract on Morrissey - Secret Agent Morrissey - is essential reading too.
ENRICO "ENNI" HAGEN
PS & SC announce with great sadness the death from cancer of our dear friend and promoter Enrico “Enni” Hagen, who passed away in Dresden on the 23rd of June. Enni was a lifelong music fan, an old-school maverick with a rock and roll heart, who also happened to be a fantastic promoter – both independently and through his beloved club “Skullcrusher”. We have great memories of playing there with Sigue Sigue Sputnik a few years ago, and he also promoted excellent concerts at other Dresden clubs, such as Alte Feuerwache and Tante Ju. The “New York Night” concerts he promoted for PS & SC, New York Junk, Deadbeat Poets and Lorraine Leckie in 2012 and 2013 were exceptional. Enni was out of the promoting business for a while due to ill health, but made a triumphant return in November 2018 with two Phil Shoenfelt solo concerts at Alte Feuerwache and Red Rooster, both of which were sold out. As well as being a talented and caring promoter, Enni looked like a wild rock and roller himself. But he was also a gentleman with old school manners who respected the people he worked with. His love and enthusiasm for rock music transmitted itself to everyone he met, and his passing will leave an unfillable void, not only in the Dresden music scene for which he did so much, but also in the hearts of his devastated friends and admirers. We send our condolences to all Enni’s friends and colleagues, and in particular to his wife Manuela, the woman he loved so long and so deeply.
"We've just heard that Lucie Rejchrtová has set up a
wonderful new webpage, which tells you about her multifarious activities in the
worlds of music, meditation and poetry. Lucie moved to the UK in the early
noughties, where she played keyboards with psychedelic groovers Instant Flight.
Then she began playing with the legendary Arthur Brown, and through him met
many other originators of UK and European psychedelic rock. Check out her
musical and personal odyssey on the Nature Grooves webpage. It's really
interesting and informative, with great pictures and videos. She's even added
a link to my own music. This girl is a star and a brilliant musician. Thanks
Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross' song "Lonely
Street" (from the 1997 CD "Blue Highway") is Song Of The Week on
Thessaloniki radio station Yellow Radio. Track down the page for the song,
which contains some nice old photographs of the band!
Published today on You Tube: the brand new video for the song "Fly Away" from Phil's recent solo album Cassandra Lied. The video was shot in Berlin at the beginning of January 2020 by Friedel Muders of Fuego, who also did the editing and visual design. High production values mixed with an ironic but nostalgic take on an ageing "man in black" singing to the Sirens.
Here is a short and snappy interview that Phil did with Directors Lounge curator Kenton Turk when they ran into each other at Prague's Dox Gallery a couple of years ago. Dim Locator had played the Directors Lounge in 2013 at a screening of the Rowland S. Howard biopic "Autoluminiscent" and the interview refers back to this. It has just been posted on the Directors Lounge homepage: https://directorslounge.net/dl-featurillo-4-phil-shoenfeld-gb/
Check out the cover version of Phil's song "Black
Rain" on Harry Stafford's fantastic new album "Gothic Urban
Blues". Harry's legendary band Inca Babies played at the 2019 Drug Me
Fest, along with Dim Locator, Kill The Dandies and many others. His version of
"Black Rain" is excellent, and the album is a genuine classic.
A great video by Harry Stafford from his wonderful new album "Gothic Urban Blues": His version of Phil's song "Black Rain", from the 1993 CD "God Is The Other Face Of The Devil". The video was mainly shot in the streets and bars of Manchester, but also features two segments filmed with Phil at last summer's Drug Me Fest in Prague. Really powerful and atmospheric.
Red Door Gallery, Copenhagen, startet a new project called "Poetic Phonotheque", an international collection of poetry recorded in the voice of their authors. This initiative was started on the "World Poetry Day 2020", and continues to welcome poetry from anywhere in the planet. Listen to Phil Shoenfelt's contribution, which can be found here: https://reddoormagazine.com/phonotheque/listen/

Subject: 1974 Fender Mustang, owned by The Fall and painted by Claus Castenskiold
From: *****@hotmail.com (yooflard) [Email adress no longer valid]
Date: 08/02/2003 18:13 GMT Standard Time
I have a Fender Mustang which was once owned by the Fall and has been painted by Fall artist Claus Castenskiold. The artwork covers the whole body of the guitar and is mostly red, blue, yellow, green white and depicts numerous faces, some of which I think resemble Einstien and Marilyn Monroe. I am told that this guitar was also borrowed by Squeeze to use in one of their videos.
Can anybody help me, I am interested in any info at all that may help me prove what it is because I have no way of knowing except that I trust the guy I got it off. Would it be collectible by anyone, would it have a value? Although I don't want to, I need to sell it if possible because I need the money."
Phil Shoenfelt's reply... 17.04.2018:
Hi. Just saw my old Fender Mustang guitar, and your question about it dating from 2003. I mean the guitar which was painted by Claus Castenskiold. I bought it in NYC in 1979 and played it in my band Khmer Rouge (Claus was the drummer) for many years - on tour in the USA supporting Nico, Alan Vega, The Clash and many others, and later in the UK, where we supported The Fall on two tours in the mid 1980s. I sold it in 1988, because (like you) I needed the money. I've been kicking myself ever since. Do you still have it, by any chance?

||Vernissage for "City Primeval:
New York, Berlin, Prague" - an anthology of underground writing and rare
photographs curated by Robert Carrithers and Louis Armand:
30.11.2017 @ Haus Schwarzenberg Kino, Berlin, Germany
Phil Shoenfelt + Marcia Schofield (ex keyboard player of The Fall) will play together for the first time since 1986. They will perform the Khmer Rouge song "City Primeval" in the Haus Schwarzenberg Cinema at 21.45, following the films and photo projections. Later, Phil Shoenfelt will perform solo with other contributors to the book at the after show party in Haus Schwarzenberg Eschschloraque.
||An excerpt of Phil's forthcoming book STRIPPED can be found on Equus Press website.
"Just heard with sadness about the death of the great Australian producer Tony Cohen. A wildly creative force in the studio with The Birthday Party, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Once Upon A Time and numerous others. I count myself lucky that I had the experience of working with him on my first solo single "Charlotte's Room"/"The Long Goodbye" back in the late 1980s. I would like to express my condolences to his family and friends. R.I.P. Tony Cohen, a maverick, a star and a true original."
Phil has recently finished producing the debut CD by Prague band SWEET POSITIVE. A five song mini-album, the CD is called AT HER MAJESTY’S PLEASURE and will be released in autumn of 2017 by the German label Moloko +. Phil also plays guitar on the recording and Dim Locator band mate Chris Hughes plays drums. The line-up is completed by singer/songwriter Azalea SoSweet on bass guitar and Sidi Santini on electric guitar, F/X and slide guitar. The title of the CD is a play on words. The obvious first meaning alludes to “femdom” sexuality; the second is a British idiom meaning to serve time in prison – all UK prisons officially belonging to Her Majesty the Queen.
Simultaneously with these activities, Phil has been working on several other projects: writing new songs for Southern Cross; working on STRIPPED (which is due to be published in English by Equus Press in 2018); and writing lyrics for the next CD by New York band Sour Jazz. Phil will also be guest vocalist on the album, which will be produced by the legendary Ramones producer Daniel Rey.

Kamikaze Skull is an experiment in phylogenetic image transference. Sophia Disgrace (London) and Phil Shoenfelt (Prague) met one time only, at a Berlin night club where Shoenfelt’s band had been playing. A system of writing subsequently evolved, whereby S.D.’s internet linguistic transmissions were cut up, tampered with, pasted and looped by P.S. The outcome was a melded “third voice”, an intuited id-entity in a parallel London that may or may not exist.
Sophia Disgrace is a London-based performance artist/visual artist/poet/professional deviant/member of the Satanic Sluts.

Thanks to all of you who attended Bruno's funeral on Saturday in Berlin. And thanks, too, to the hundreds of well-wishers who sent messages through the post, by phone and through My Space, but who couldn't be there in person. It was a sad, but beautiful affair, a fitting send-off for a man whose big heart, warmth and musical talent affected so many people. And as someone who loved life and loved people, I am sure that Bruno would have been touched by the huge outpouring of love and affection that his passing occasioned.
I would just like to mention that there will be at least two tribute concerts in the coming weeks and months to celebrate Bruno's music and his life: one in Berlin and one in Prague. There may be other concerts organised in other cities as well. As soon as we have any idea of the times, dates and venues, we will post this news on the Fatal Shore homepage and My Space sites.
|20.04.2009||The date and time of Bruno's
funeral has now been set, and all those wishing to pay their final respects
are welcome to attend. The service will take place at 12 noon on Saturday 25th
April at Alter Luisenstadt Kirchhof, Südstern 8-12, 10961 Berlin.
Update: Apparently there are several entrances to the cemetery. Please use the entrance on Südstern 8-12 (not Bergmannstr. 39-47) And after the funeral there will be an informal get-together in Hasenheide Park, a short distance from the cemetery. Any of Bruno's friends are welcome to come along and make a kind of picnic. Food and drinks will not be provided, so please bring your own refreshments. In the evening there will be an informal reception at the Trödler club in Kreuzberg, a favourite haunt of Bruno's. Again, all are welcome.
For those of you who don't already know, Fatal Shore singer and frontman Bruno Adams died peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of Saturday morning, 18/4/2009.
Bruno had been battling cancer for five years with all the strength and courage he could muster. But in the end time ran out, and he passed away at home in Berlin, surrounded by his family and close friends. Although in great physical pain, Bruno never once gave in to self-pity or despair. He loved his wife Katka and his three children with a depth of passion that never faltered, and in spite of his rapidly deteriorating condition, he managed to remain lucid and aware right up until the end. Bruno loved life and he loved people, and for him to be taken from us at such a young age is a tragedy that we will all suffer to come to terms with. The wonderful music he made will continue to inspire, and everyone whose life he touched (and there are many), will remember this unique and beautiful character with the deep love and respect that were the hallmark of Bruno's own attitude to life.
Bruno Adams: Born 02/09/1963, Bacchus Marsh, Australia. Died 18/04/2009 R.I.P. Berlin, Germany.
Details about Bruno's funeral will be posted on the Fatal Shore homepage as soon as we know them. The funeral will take place in Berlin, and all Bruno's friends are welcome to attend. If you would like to send a message of condolence, go to: www.myspace.com/fatalshore

Shoenfelt - Golden Vanity
"The Lost album from Berlin has finally surfaced ten years after the recording finished. One of the most experimental albums recorded by Schoenfelt & the late Nikki Sudden....
With very great pleasure we announce that Troubadour is issuing the Golden Vanity album recorded by Nikki Sudden & Phil Shoenfelt in Berlin in 1998. Ten years later it will see the light of day with full blessing of the Sudden estate and the brilliant Mr Shoenfelt. Easy Action boss Carlton says "this is one f##kin amazing album!

Fronted by singer/guitarist Phil Shoenfelt, Khmer Rouge also included bass player Barry
“Scratchy” Myers, who had accompanied The Clash as guest DJ on their first three US
tours. The line-up was completed by drummer Paul Garisto, who later went on to play with
the Psychedelic Furs and Iggy Pop. On October 11th, 2007, twenty five years after the
Troy, NY, show, Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross will support ex-Clash guitarist Vince
White at the Retro Music Hall in Prague. Thus completing a circle in time that has nothing

We, Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross and Volker Regner, would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of Lothar Gärtner, who passed away after a long illness on Saturday the 3rd of December 2005.
Lothar was a true lover of music and had a strong vision of what he wanted to release on the three record labels he founded: the well known German independent Strange Ways, Sireena and more recently his new company Phantasmagoria. All of these labels were committed to releasing high quality independent music which Lothar personally believed in.
We thank him for releasing our own CD Deep Horizon in 2004, and it is a CD we are extremely proud of. Without Lothar it wouldn't have been possible.
We miss him greatly and would like to express our admiration for a man who did so much to further the cause of independent music. His legacy will live on in the music he championed.
