Dieter Meier to play in London

Dietrer Meier has confirmed his first-ever UK show – he’ll appear at London’s Jazz Cafe on September 16.

The 69-year-old Yello vocalist will perform some classic tracks alongside material from his debut solo album Out Of Chaos, which was released earlier this year via Staatsakt Records.

The label say: “Dieter stands at the bar of his life, musing about the rivers of time. Sometimes his songs sound like electro-acoustic Yello tracks, sometimes like a tender ex-lovers-blues from under the sea. Sometimes you’ll find a post-punk nerve or an ode to a befriended artist, who wrestles through life as a night porter.

“All the time Out Of Chaos is a magical sound-alchemy made of chanson, electro and dub.”

Tickets for Meier’s London show are on sale now.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
