Press Release

In January 2006, Phil Shoenfelt & Bruno Adams began to prepare the songs that would later be featured on REAL WORLD, the third Fatal Shore CD (Amboss Recordings, 2007). Of the fourteen songs that would appear on Real World, nine are presented on Out Of The Sky in their prototypical form. Whereas the critically acclaimed Real World is notable for its lush orchestral arrangements, the songs contained on OOTS are remarkable for their purity of sound and the intricate interweaving of voices and guitars. Without the embellishment of bass, drums and orchestra, a rich tonality is revealed, a harmonic vibration that emerges naturally, without striving or affectation. These songs are strong enough to stand alone – they enter the consciousness of the listener in an intimate and unmediated manner. What is even more surprising is that they were recorded on a simple VS-880 8-Track in Adams’ flat in Kreuzberg – a fact that is hard to reconcile with the depth of sonic field achieved.
The demos were lost for many years, and only came to light in March 2018. Now released in CD format by the German label Moloko +, they are a vivid testament to the lyrical and musical alchemy that existed between Phil and Bruno. They also preserve the songwriting legacy of Adams, who died from colon cancer in 2009 at the age of forty five.
