Acoustic

CD 1995


Acoustic

Live Album

A unique documentation of the completely sold-out 1995 “Acoustic” tour. Deine Lakaien, this time a classic duo - “unplugged”, just “prepared piano” and vocals.

Alexander Veljanov’s distinguished voice and Ernst Horn’s furious piano play are an impressive combination.

1st edition special edition

“Acoustic” is one of the few live albums, that make it into the German Media Control charts until then, amazing even experts.

Surround-Mastering All 15 song-recordings are in excellent digital live quality.

And this is how everything began – from this radio-ffn festival performance with an improvised “Acoustic” gig a whole tour originated…and finally a celebrated live-album!

Festival of Darkness III in Hannover
Deine Lakaien set standards

The dark star shines brightest

HANNOVER After the telephone lines of Isernhagen where hot from the calls of many fans protesting against the cancellation of the “Grenzwellen” shown of Radio ffn, a victory celebration took place in the Music Hall in Hannover. Hosts usually keep the highlight of a show until the end. This festival, however, had a spectacular beginning: Ernst Horn and Alexander Veljanov alias Deine Lakaien entered the stage bringing along only a piano. At least after “Reincarnation” the audience was completely captured. Ernst Horn replaced a whole orchestra with his piano and Veljanov enchanted everybody with his magnificent voice, no whistling, no talking interrupted their performance. The other bands of the evening had to match the standard set by their encore, the hymn “Dark Star” …….

Listening to these 15 pieces, you are enthrilled by Alexander Veljanov's sonorous, vibrating voice, and realize what furious pianist Ernst Horn is.

AZ München

Fascinating. I haven't seen an audience concentrated like this at a pop concert for a long time.
