Very Famous / Chinese release and tour
A previously unheard TVB song titled "Very Famous" from his upcoming 2nd LP can be streamed at http://virb.com/wbrec/audio/419962.

It looks like this album will be released in China through Wangba Records, with a Chinese tour scheduled in September '09...

I've emphasized the interesting info in the news text below:

Quote:>>>TROY VON BALTHAZAR | Chinese Tour | September 2009
[Image: pic01.jpg] Expanding on the slow, sad landscapes of CHOKEBORE's later works. TROY VON BALTHAZAR (Hawaïi/US) is certainly one of the most precious songwriter from the 90's.
In the beginning of his career he was the frontman of the hawaiian band CHOKEBORE. In 93 & 94 KURT COBAIN chose his band like warm-up band for severals dates in US. At this time, the leader of NIRVANA thought CHOKEBORE was one of the best band on stage. So, with KURT COBAIN like godfather, CHOKEBORE started to play all around the world ... and from 1993 to 2003 they recorded 6 albums:
- Motionless 1993
- Anything Near Water 1995
- A Taste For Bitters 1996
- Black Black 1998
- It's a miracle 2002
- A Part From Life 2003 (Compilation CD)
In 2005, he released his first solo album (a part of it was recorded 2 years before in the studio of his friend: ELLIOTT SMITH). From 2004, he performs himself on stage, more than 200 gigs in Europe and U.S and during his travels he wrote a book about women he met: "3 Girls" (2006). So now, his life is writing & music and in this mood he continues to multiply experiences with some songwriters as LEONARD COHEN to prepare his new album (2nd solo album) which will be available in China on June 09.

Re: Very Famous / Chinese release and tour
J'ai fouiné sur internet au vue du peu d'informations que l'on a sur ce fameux album. Il semblerait que ce ne soit pas le deuxième album, mais l'équivalent de "3EP", version Chine. Ci dessous la tracklist :

'8 Songs For Chinese Girls'

1.Very very famous
2.Sweetheart
3.Heroic Little Sisters
4.Rainbow
5.Red Spider
6.Sweet Receiver
7.Paradise
8.I get faded

On y apprend également en fin de page que son deuxième album devrait sortir rapidement en europe...

TROY VON BALTHAZAR Solo Discography & Works
LP1-Self Titled 2005
Live In Paris (DVD) 2006
3 GIRLS (Book) 2007
TVB 3 EP 2009
LP2-Not Untitled Yet (will be released very soon in Europe) 2009

Enfin celui sortirait-il sur le label because music?? C'est pas impossible si l'on en croit la note a coté du titre "Very Famous" sur le site de Wangba.

About the title "8 songs for chinese girls"
From Douban website :
Quote:Why this Title for the chinese edition: "8 songs for chinese girls"

1.His last work in Europe was his book titled "3 GIRLS" (2007).
http://www.douban.com/subject/3836185
In this book, he give us his thoughts about women and music. For him there's an intimate relation between women and his work.
??
2.There are 2 parts inside everyone, a male one & a female one, this is the theory of DAO, yin & yang.
The creative energy comes from the female part. That's why his voice is melancolic and feminine.
So, these songs are like scares he gives to feminine part of chinese people (so not only for 'chinese girls'), scares about condition of men in this world.
??
3.In a different way this title is a provocation too ... about sex.

A Toulon, il nous avait dit que le second album sortirait seulement en janvier 2010. Il m'a confié que figurerait, et c'est son morceau préféré, le titre "communicate". Smile

RE: Very Famous / Chinese release and tour
Bad news, the Chinese tour has been postponed to November due to health problems.

Here's the statement found on Douban ( http://www.douban.com/note/38235896/ ):

Quote:CHINA TOUR 2009 (巡演推迟) + 惘闻 + HZ(沼泽的歌手)+ 花伦 + IDH
2009-07-06 13:44:57


巡演推迟 / CHINA TOUR POSTPONED

我们不得不在得到最后确认的情况下,向大家告知推后TROY VON BALTHAZAR在中国巡演的消息。
  他在东欧的巡演之后就病了,目前在德国的医院接受检查,
  虽然他的具体病情我和他的欧洲经纪人都还不是很清楚,但是很可能他要返回美国接受治疗,因此,我们还不清楚他什么时候身体和精神都准备好了来中国,或许十月,十一月......
  非常抱歉对于这种情况,我们无力应对,我们希望你们理解。
  我们将联系所有关于此中国巡演的场地方关于暂时取消此次演出的通知,我们希望能够尽快为TROY VON BALTHAZAR在中国安排新的演出日期。

  如下你们可以找到TROY VON BALTHAZAR本人2天前写给我的email......
  
‘hi Yoan,
   I am in Berlin and Im sorry to say that i have been very ill these last days.
   I do not think i can make the China tour.
  I can not physically do it.
   I have been to the hospital yesterday and really need to focus on getting some health insurance ASAP.
   I am so sorry to ask you if its possible to postpone the tour.
   Its just too much with my bad health.
  I know you worked very hard to put this tour together and again i am VERY sorry to have to write you this email.
   I really was looking forward to seeing China. Ive wanted to come for many years.
  If we can do it at a later date i will be happy to come.
   again i am very sorry. I have never canceled a tour in all of my 16 years of touring but my health is serious. I hope you can understand
   Troy‘

Chinese speakers are welcome to post a translation, I'm sure they would do a better job than Google Translate...
By the way, it looks like the "8 Songs for Chinese Girls" record can be fully streamed online at this location: http://www.douban.com/artist/troyvonb/

Enjoy!

RE: Very Famous / Chinese release and tour
Well...this is bad news indeed...I really hope he's gonna be alright and can get out of it very quickly...I remenber he told me in Valence that his stomach was "really fucked up" but I dont know if there's a connection between that and the fact he had to go to the hospital...Anywway, if someone has some news, that would be great to keep us up.
