Bela B & Danube’s BanksThe "... Live at Clouds Hill" series has been around for several years now. It all began
in 2011 with an improvised Krautrock performance in a class of its own. Faust & Omar
Rodriguez-Lopez. Jean-Hervé Perón fell backwards with a running chainsaw and slit open
Rodriguez-Lopez' jeans and only with luck not his leg.
Since then great bands like Nissennenmondai (JP), Bosnian Rainbows (US), Wargirl (US),
Dillon (D), Kolars (US) or Peter Doherty (UK) have been guests and honoured the holy halls
of Clouds Hill Studios with great live performances. These performances in front of fans and
friends are recorded on tape and mixed live. With the last sound played the recording is
finished and can be cut to vinyl. Imperfection as concept. As carrier of emotions.
In December 2018, when the Clouds Hill Studio opened its doors for the eighth time to 300
guests, a very special cooperation came about. Bela B & Danube's Banks Live at Clouds Hill
The special cooperation between Bela B and Danube's Banks was one of the headliner at our
Clouds Hill Festival 2018. Gipsy Swing meets the unique Klezmer sound and added a bit of
Balkan Beats. All this combined with the lyrics and the charm of one of the most charismatic
german musicans. Everything was recorded live with audience to a 24 track tape machine by
Johann Scheerer. The whole concert is now available on a limited 12" vinyl. An unforgettable
evening which Johann Scheerer recorded on 24 track tape.
The limited 12" vinyl " Danube's Banks & Bela B Live at Clouds Hill" was released on April
