about

“Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an
utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.” (The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, Douglas Adams)

Life is grim on the galactic rim! Every day we face the trials of our small and – viewed in the right context – quite insignificant lives anew. And every day we rewrite history, always the same, the eternal story: Eat or get eaten, beat or get beaten!

Certainly, the astrophysicist and science fiction fan Ian O’Neill had something else in mind when he phrased his famous sentence “life is grim on the galactic rim”... and yet he describes very fittingly what is happening to us, the residents of this irrelevant fringe of the galaxy, on a daily basis.

“Life Is Grim” is the second single release from the latest microClocks album “Soon Before Sundown”. Again the band got well-known support on board to thrill and shake up the dancefloors of the galaxy:
While Klangstabil give the song a truly epic character with their Eternity Mix, Lord Of The Lost start up a storm of sound that is hard to top with its fat beats, whereas the Spanish Cyborgdrive have a real blast in 4/4 time.

Moshing, dancing or simply listening –life is grim on the galactic rim but beautiful as well.

about

“Will microClocks become as good as Depeche Mode?“

The oh-so independent and impartial “Bild”, Germany’s most famous tabloid paper, entitled an article about microClocks with these words some time ago. Since then, the yellow press has been obsessing about this question more than the band itself. The comparison with the celebrities from Basildon falls short… but still ennobles the band! ... more

a fight to stay alive
