“In der Ferne” is part One of a two-­‐part release which is inspired by mostly true stories spinning around the figure of legendary British army Lieutenant Thomas Edward Lawrence, who went by the nickname “Lawrence of Arabia” and who during the 1910’s put some effort into the train ambushing business, as well as by mostly untrue stories spinning around the fictional character of Mimi who may or may not have been the Lieutenant’s mistress during his years of service in the Arabian desert. Last but not least the album is a bow to soft acoustic background noise such as the whispering of old microphones or the faint murmur of defect guitar amplifiers.

Bum|mel, der ; [ˈbʊml̩], n. {masc.}, colloquial German for: stroll

Bum|mel|zug, der ; [ˈbʊml̩t͜suːk], n.{masc.} , German (ironic) for: a slow train which stops at every station

Bum|mel|zug Ex|plo|si|on, die [ˈbʊml̩t͜suːk ɛksploˈzi̯oːn] n. {fem.}
1. German for: the explosion of a slow train which before used to stop at every station

2. Name of a musical group formed by Berlin­ based Jazz­drummer Janis Görlich.

BUMMELZUG EXPLOSION was formed in early 2012. The band plays original instrumental compositions by its leader Janis Görlich. The group dedicates itself to the performance of rather slow tempos, short solos and simple melodies, which stick to the listeners ears. However from time to time there may occur little unexpected explosions similar to explosions of steam locomotives in former times, which blew up usually as a result from conditions of high boiler pressure.
