Does anyone know what is happening with Till Bennewitz? I have his excellent album, which Anysley produced and played on, along with some of his band, released on Aysley’s Straight Talking Record label. I have been trying to find out whether he will be playing in the UK soon. His web site no longer seems to be running and his Facebook page hasn’t been updated for ages. Does anyone know what is going on?
Hi, and welcome to the Forum (so long as it’s still here….)
I hope Steph picks this thread up as I too would like to catch Till doing a gig. I know he was at last year’s Scarborough Top Secret festival, which I missed; but haven’t heard anything since. I don’t think there’s anything even on the STR website….
Steph - over to you sweetie….
I wonder if T2 will be as big a disappointment as the original Trainspotting was to the railway enthusiast.
PS he was great at Scarborough last year
Such a shame Till is quiet at the moment, though I don’t expect he will be for long! We never released the album we recorded with him because we had some problems with the sponsors. It’s absolutely fantastic though so I’d imagine he’ll be releasing it at some point.. Absolutely not a problem for those who’ve already got it but a shame for the rest of the world, definitely!
The last I heard from Till he was recording another album with a record company in Germany who were interested in backing it and he’s still busy writing. He played me some of the new music and it sounded really great. He guested at our last show in Hamburg in November too and said things were going well.
Hopefully he’ll have some news we can share with you all soon and have him back in the UK again.. We’ll definitely be helping him promote it so as soon as we hear we’ll let you all know.
Thanks for the update. It is a concern that his web site is no longer up and he is so quiet on Facebook. I hope he is going to release more work.
