Electo pop visionary Phonique makes tunes that exhilirate – and this is mirrored in the look of his new Good Idea record. Music and images become one and form a unity, spreading such high spirits, that even the parrot can't but dance until his feathers curl. Groovy!

For the occasion of Pokerflat Recordings 10th anniversary, a complete poker hand plus collectors box was developed. Illustrated by mastermind illustrator C. Babbel and comissioned by design boutique Weissraum, you will find this fine poker hand from Tokyo to Las Vegas on every well-assorted poker table. The highlight is cover skull Wild Bill. Royal flash, amigos.

The illustrative look of Pokerflat Recordings' newest album cover is based on the myth of legendary gunslinger and draw poker legend Bill Hickok. When shot in 1876, he was holding a pair of aces and a pair of eights, all black. After his death this became widely known as the Dead Man's Hand. R.I.P. Wild Bill.

...we`ve left you without a dope crew to step to.

Out of the dungeons of nowhere a group named “Coconut Crew” steps into German spotlights. These men have been twisting brains since the 70`s, or rather digging brains for fresher water since the early days of crewness. Getting bored of local outlets, these four characters did what all good foreigners do when they need their kicks – they travelled 'round. Fortunately for “The Nuts”, Skip, frontman and whrling dancer, does the talking for them, clattering past the “Eleptic boogie” of their 1983 debut, “Coconut Session”. Unfortunately the world is ours. Within this showcase showin' love over decades of crewness we are superdown wid' all these artists. And the thrill of it: I`ll take a look around too!“
