What a holiday with old friends all can not be good ... The idea for "Have the honor", the first solo album of Spider Murphy Gang frontman Günther Sigl, In any case originated in a sunny holiday with friends in Gran Canaria. Günther Sigl was with its present musical collaborators Dieter Radig and Willie Duncan, the well known guitarist in the current lineup of Spider Murphy Gang is 1994 together in Gran Canaria. With Dieter Radig was Günther Sigl friends since childhood. Under the sun of Spain was then for 14 days musiziert zünftig in a finca. "It was a kind of modern house music", recalls Günther Sigl. "I can still clearly remember that the dieter, because we had no drumsticks, one has simply tinkered brooms from palm fronds. It has great fun and so we afterwards met again to play together. Willie even brought a friend from Regensburg. As a former Domspatz Wolfgang Götz is responsible for keys and vocal arrangements. "
Musically on "Have the honor" Versatility trump. The tonal span goes from Bar Jazz, Western and Gipsy Swing About Boogie Woogie, tangible rock 'n' roll through to chanson. Unlike the rock Spiders sound it comes to Sigls solo album rather relaxed and without major SoundtÜfteleien to works. Everything sounds natural and recorded live - what it is on the whole well. All recordings were in Günther Sigls rehearsal room, the famous Railway Studios, added.
It was a great feeling to work full time without time pressure, "says Günther Sigl On the development of "Have the honor". "If I now need a name choose would, would I 'denote the music as, Old School songwriting. It was important to me conceptually, that it should not be so loud and on a smaller scale is performable. This idea already was with me at the unplugged concerts of Spiders, who have made me a lot of fun. The sound has grabbed me and the personal stories that I told between songs, led me directly to the musical concept of this album. "
If you listen to by the excellent sound carrier, it must be held that Günther Sigl songwriting had always loved by him nostalgic musical styles in their sights. After all began, born on February 8, 1947 Singer in 1962 playing the guitar and is called as the first role models Cliff Richard and the Shadows, Hank Williams, the Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry and the Beatles. "I have my first electric guitar at that time actually even tinkered by I built pickups in an acoustic guitar", He lets his musical beginnings reminisce. "My first amp was a Grundig radio of my father, the way bought my first guitar. He later regretted determined when I secure employment announced in 1971 as a banker to make henceforth as a musician my living. Nevertheless, it was felt, with music you always got well through life '. Ultimately, he has also been right. "
The songs on "Have the honor" is practically Günther Sigl pur - catchy melodies mingle with subtle humor and all based on sensible everyday observations. this is a very great strength Sigls that on even and especially "Have the honor" takes full effect.
The CD starts because even equal hitverdächtig with musically loose 60ies flair. The song "Bella Italia" plays with the famous image that the MÜnchen "Northernmost city in Italy" is. And while we are on Italy, Rome is not far. Even the Pope is in the Song "Papa Ratzi" closer scrutinized. How exactly is the daily life of the Pope, here is the rather serious question. Even a religious institution as our "Papa Ratzi" must indeed times what food, drink and maybe "A white sausage and a pretzel".
And on it goes with the humorous spy of respectable personalities. "Super Girl" In this context, a sounding tribute to our Chancellor Angela Merkel, freely based on the story of the ugly duckling that becomes a radiant swan.
A witty observation of the Tour everyday regarding musicians inclined towards women - with commercial interests - provides the title "PiccolÖchen" represent. "The ladies always want a PiccolÖchen when we stand with them at the hotel bar", tells Sigl grin. "That's us so often happens, that it was time time to sing about it." A favorite Sigls and content something like the big brother of "PiccolÖchen" is the song "One Night Stand". Erotic-themed bar music that sounds like a whole big band. "I think on one, One Night Stand 'is actually wrong with anything", so Sigl with a sly wink. "Somehow everything begins with a time, One Night Stand 'on." And on we go in the context of sweet fantasies: "Because you're so cute, I'm so keen on you" is it because the song "Tiramisu". Whether it is about erotic or purely culinary delights, this question remains open easily ... What is certain is that this good humor and typical Western Swing are announced.
"The bottom Flauchersteg" is a beautiful romantic ballad Munich Summer. Flaucher, the explanation for not MüNCheNeR, is a known location on the Isar, where all the townspeople for barbecues, swimming and of course also for flirting and strolling in the summer. A clear statement with casting shows the song "Applause fOr Küblböck". Biting irony About "Shrill with the glasses" combines with swinging guitars and a casual walking bass. Touched Musette and Hippie Feeling blowing through the song "Summer 69". Although the summer of love is long gone, but the hippie girl with the tambourine dance in your dreams on. A spiced with humor siglschen Song About broken promises is "24 thousand". "Promised 24,000 times and not once has it works ..." drowned it because from the hi-fi systems and no question the noble intentions are many, only the implementation fails again at oh so weak flesh.
True to the Frank Zappa Quote, that there is nothing about which one can not sing, leaves us the song of the album also penetrate deep psychological spheres of gifted writer: "I am a man sniffing and smell just really love." The song "TrÜffelschweinderl" Does This obsession musically loose and it is at this point a real shame that you can not smell Music ...
From ironic text forth in the socio-critical tradition of Hits "Glitterati" comes the song "The monkeys are not only in the Zoo" therefore. The title shows the way to the animal reality of our time. With the last song "But safety is schee again" lets Sigls chapel again really crash. Let's go with a title over the annual Bavarian National noise - even Wiesn called!
"Have the honor" is all fans Spider Murphy Gang, lovers of skillful songwriting sometimes ironic, cryptic texts and friends good handmade music like. And the tension rises already to infinity as Günther Sigl and his musical friends the many great songs - palm fronds thank - will bring to the stage.
