From the new website:
"At the Kosmische Musik Zentrum plans were hatched for a new project. A krautrock/progrock band with an authentic spirit of the early seventies scene. The KMZ is certainly a work in progress, but the stone cellars and outbuildings, along with the main building affords ample room for any art project. Along with local musicians, visitors to the summer jams have included Klaus Henatsch from Nektar and Uve Mullrich from Embryo.
Back in California, Nicky Garratt became the musical director and guitarist for the new Nik Turner album recruiting Jason Willer (U.K. Subs) and Jeff Miles (Chelsea) for the rhythm section.
With Jugen Engler (Die Krupps) playing second guitar and Keyboards the band completed the highly acclaimed 'Space Gypsy' album. Here was the catalyst for the new project Hedersleben. On the heels of 'Space Gypsy' Hedersleben joined Joel Vandroogenbroeck's Brainticket for a new album adding Kephera Moon and Kyrsten Bean on vocals and keyboards and Bryce Shelten replacing Miles on Bass. Immediately after the Brainticket album this line-up recorded Hedersleben's debut album Upgoer. Hedersleben embarked on their first US tour opening for and backing Nik Turner in October/November 2013.
After a headlining west coast tour Hedersleben recorded their seconnd album 'Die Neuen Welten' in May 2014.
On June 3rd 2014 Hedersleben performed a one-off show with guest guitarist Captain Sensible of the Damned at 1234Go records in Oakland, see the video below:
The first Hedersleben album 'Upgoer' is available on CD from the Time & Matter webstore for £6, plus postage and packaging - every copy we sell has been personally signed by Nicky Garratt.
We will also be having signed copies of the new CD album available in August...
