The Denizens' Drum
I proudly give to you The Denizens' Drum-Video, which has finally drummed up to the suface.
Our ancestors understood how to ritually and properly welcome boys into maleness and manhood.
Since us boys of 2011 generally missed out on that (except for soccer-sing-alongs and combat drinking,
which doesn't quite do the job), we tried to catch up on that.
Brace yourselfs girls, this shall be raw, male and sweaty!

Make no mistake, the gig on November 19th is not the Roman-Gig you'll expect. It is in fact something else!
Together with one Ensemble of New Music and one other band, he made up a concert that's to be presented on stage, in Cologne.
Roman composed one of the pieces presented, so there's lots of him, and lots of ideas you probably haven't seen before.
Free your minds, come!

Futura is the first single of the new album!
The video for the track is the result of an internet campaign that was started a couple of weeks ago.
The deal was very simple: "You get the song, I get your dance!" No rules, but freedom and privacy!
So to all the domestic dancers: thank you, chapeau, you got balls!

ROMANS 'CURIOUS TAPES' ARE ON
This is the start of Romans internet series The Curious Tapes that are going to be released monthly. What's the idea? Well, hard to outline - let's just say it's about his new songs. And his mates. And his show. And some stupid locals. And skating polar bears. And evil kids. And urban solitude. And a notebook..

23th January 2010
So 2010 it is! A year with lots in store, starting off with the brand new homepage.
Roman has been working on his new album, which is going to be finished soon. It brings together a lot of things, some that belong together and some that don't.
There's collaborations with producers such as Henning Schmitz (member of the band Kraftwerk) and Bertil Mark (who has worked with Thomas D., The Notwist etc.), Roman's band, which has become a major part of the recording process, as well as a string ensemble and guest vocalists such as Newcastle born Tom Ashforth.
Roman has also recently signed a sync deal with the gorgeous One Little Indian, a label that has artists such as Bjork, Emiliana Torrini, Sigur Ros and Paul McCartney on its roster and that has been an inspiration for many years. He will also continue to work with the Berlin-based label Karaoke Kalk Records.
