News from Willma Poppen!

Heya folks! First news is, that there's a new AlionLive Madeira video out, featuring the most recent tracks by Willma Poppen. Enjoy a nice & crazy busride into the wild heartland of Madeira with booming Willma Poppen sounds.

The second thing is: We have some merchandising stuff available for you, like T-Shirts, Buttons & stuff, featuring the covergraphics of the album "Heroes of the Popp-Culture". This was not our idea, but at least one true fan wanted to have that. Unfortunately the shop is currently only on the german Spreadshirt site, but we'll do our best to also open a Spredshirt shop on Spreadshirt.com, to give all you non-germans a chace to buy the stuff without problems. CLICK HERE to get to our german shop!

We are busy building a german version of the Willma Poppen homepage and the Blog, so our overwhelming german fanbase does not require to learn lousy English ;)

That's it!

The album "Heroes of the Popp-Culture" is OUT NOW!

Yess, you can order the album right now, BUT... there are some difficulties... unfortunately... Ok, as you may know I distribute music via the retailer Routenote and it seems, that it will take some time until the album is on my Routenote shop and then it will take another 2 to 6 weeks until it is available on iTunes, Amazon etc. I do not want to bore you with the details...

But I really want you to be able to get the album right now, especially because some of you have been waiting such a looong time for it. So the only way for you to get the album is to order it from me directly. To keep it all short & crisp, here's what to do:
  1. The price of the album is 9,99 € or 11,99 US$.
  2. Send that ammount of money either to my Paypal account (alionsonny@alionsonny.com) or write an E-Mail to alionsonny@alionsonny.com and I will send you the banking details for bank transfer.
  3. Once you have sent the money, please write me a mail with your name, your E-Mail address and method of payment.
  4. Once I received your payment, I will send a RAR-archive containing the album to the E-Mail address you provided. If this doesn't work for you, I will provide you with a download link where you can download the album.
What you get is all 13 tracks of the album in pristine 320 kbps MP3 quality plus the front cover graphics in high resolution. Talking about quality: This is NOT the bad quality you can listen to at Soundcloud or in the AlionLive videos. Soundcloud as well as Youtube heavily compresses the audio and I am allways disappointed when I upload either a track to Soundcloud or video to Youtube how bad it sounds there. So if you buy the album, you will be able to listen to Willma Poppen in a quality you have never heared before.

If you have ANY questions about the ordering process described above, if you prefer a different way of payment or of receiving the album or a different audio format, please feel free to send an E-Mail to alionsonny@alionsonny.com and I will do my best to help you.

Sorry for the inconvinience

All hail the mighty Arpeggiatorus! DONE! The last track for the album!

Yeeeehaw pardners AAAND DONE! We are allmost ready to release that album you have waited for since 2008. Aww, so much time has passed allready since you first witnessed the sweet sounds of the Willma Poppen Project? Yes it has. But well... the wait is soon over. That new track we released today, titled "Holy Arpeggiatorus" deserves it's name, because it features a heavy load of stunning use of the allmighty arpeggiator.

So what's left to do until we release the album? There are 3 tracks I, alionsonny grandmaster of the Willma Poppen Illuminati Lodge, have to take a close look at again and fix some mixing issues. Those who listened for some times through the tracks will know which tracks I mean ;)

So, without any more words: Here's THE HOLY ARPEGGIATORUS!

Disco Bear is in the house! New track released and more...

Tick-Tock-Tick-Tock... time is running towards the release of our album! The track "Disco Bear", released today is the next-to-last one and then it is finally done! So it looks like the album is released until the weekend. It will first be available on Routenote and later on Amazon, iTunes, Spotify etc.

The album cover for the album is also allready done. You see it at the top of this blogposting. I decided for an old painting of the french revoloution. Don't try to sue me, because it is over 100 years old, so the copyright has expired. Doesn't that look great. Ok, guys.. I don't mean the tits. They look rather weird. I suppose the painter of the picture never saw any real ones ;)

Ok folks: No time for more talk. You want that album, right? So i have to finnish that last track! So here is "Disco Bear"! Enjoy!

Willma is taking a little trip back to her childhood -> new release!

Ok, first sorry to all those who read that good ole Facebook during the past 2 days and allways read something like "new track is going to be released". I will not get into the details, but some stuff went kinda wrong so i allways thought the new track would be just a matter of a few minutes of work... and then ...well...

But now it is done! Our new trip takes you back to the days of dear Willma's childhood. I will not get into the details because, as you can imagine, Willma's childhood was not like any childhood of a little girl. There was that incident with that other child which was found burried in the sand and also there was some accident at the beach... ahh, no I will not tell you the bloody and or embarassing details. *LOL*

So here is TRACK NUMBER ELEVEN of the upcomming album! Just 2 to go! And we plan a nice little surprise for the release of the album, but sadistic as we are, we will not tell you yet. Just as much as there will be 5 copies of the album given away for FREE in a sweepstake... oops, now I told it... ;) Details follow...

So here's the new track "Childhood Memories"! Enjoy!

Joyriding in Popp-Town - New release!

About time we get that album finnished eh? Patience, brothers and sisters: The end is near! Just 3 more songs and it will be out in the shops! This is track number ten, and it is a special one: This is a solo work by me, the mastermind of the project. No, this is not because nobody contributed anything. In fact I am working at the finalization of at least 2 other tracks simultaneously. So why is the new track "Joyriding in Popp-Town" made by me, myself and I? Well, I had that quick idea for the bassline and rythm a few days ago and i asked some contributors if they wanted to work with me at this and the answer was something like "Ugh, that's... weird... nope... no idea what to contribute to this". So I decided to finnish "Joyriding in Popp-Town" all by myself, just to show those *insert insult here* what a great song I can make out of this. Now they are all like "Wow! That's great! Makes them butts shake!". Yadayadayada... Thanks for nothing, jerks ;)

Nope, I'm not angry against my folks. In fact I am quite thankful for the opportunity to do a track for the project all by myself. Yeah, as I said, the remaining 3 tracks for the album are allready on their way and somewhere in a state between a nice arrangement and allmost finnished. So be ready for some more Willma Poppen dope during the next days. And now have fun with our (actually my ;) ) new release. Fasten your seatbelts, empty that bottle of booze and have some fun joyriding in Popp-Town. Ahh, nearly forgot: Greetings to the folks in Hamburg-Poppenb├╝ttel -> you know why ;)
