​Ladies & Gentlemen,


Raise your glasses to the Economy, to the Wealthy Few, to Fading Millions, to the Freedom of Fortune. The world of the Prosperous and Beautiful is rotating further towards a Capitalistic Climax. So allow us to introduce you to the stories of Marvelous Mavericks and Moneymakers: 

A busy Businessman and his personal secretary are spending a sunny afternoon at the horserace track, a quick trip to Dubai

back-and-forth, the glimmering façade of a monumental Building, a Wallstreet-sign close to the pavement-café in which Rich Men are talking over some Business of high importance, having coffee. Oh what a wonderful world it is, the World of the Wealthy…


Throughout the last year we recorded songs in several sessions at PeaceCastleMusicStudios. With Felix as our patient and steady Companion - never tired, never weary - guiding us from tape to tape, we shaped this Album.

A million “thank-you’s” and Love to Felix for all his efforts, ideas, time and strength!

Thomas and Gabriele! Thank you for all the passion, assistance and support on this project; we are going to pay you as soon as we become millionaires. The honor for the Artwork goes to Markus, Linda, Luca, Berger, Silke and Bernhard. Thanks a lot for making it happen. Furthermore, we’d like to thank Stefan, Martin and Irene for their time, effort and ears.

Love to Adele, Armela & Iris, the First Ladies of Poetry.


In addition, we kindly thank Martin, Paul, Fabian, Gerhard, Kitze, Major, Norbert, Markus & the YoCo-Team, Rosa & Peter, Baldur & Nìna, Andrea & Helmut, Jana, Keli, David, Dario, Valentin, Maria, Clemens and Wolfgang.


So cheers Gentlemen, cheers!
