3 -2 -1 Zündung. Es knallt und donnert, Take Off. Sieben Männer krallen sich an ihre Instrumente und drücken ihre blanken Füße in den Boden, während sie der Schub tief in die Sitze presst. Die Augen fest verschlossen, der Gesichtsausdruck konzentriert angespannt, dennoch zuversichtlich. LaBrassBanda sind bereit bereit die Welt zu umrunden. Was 2007 zunächst als musikalische Revolution in Bayern begann, dortige Traditionshüter erschütterte, gleichzeitig aber die Jugend zu Blechblasmusik in Scharen vor die Bühnen und in die Clubs holte, erfasste spätestens 2013 beim deutschen Vorentscheid zum Eurovision Songcontest die komplette Bundesrepublik. Es folgten ausverkaufte Konzerthallen von Berlin bis Köln, von Hamburg bis München. Etwaige Sprachbarrieren bei Texten in bayerischer Mundart: Fehlanzeige. Die größten Festivalbühnen beim u.a. Southside- oder Hurricane-Festival wurden förmlich von Fans überrannt, wenn die Band um Frontmann Stefan Dettl mit ihrem mitreißenden Sound aus Brass-Pop, HipHop, Punk und Techno, sogar den Nachthimmel zum Glühen brachte. LaBrassBanda sind Live eine Bank, was sich europaweit schnell rumsprach: 2014 tourten die allesamt studierten Musiker im Nightliner durch ganz Großbritannien und sind mittlerweile auf Europas größtem Festival dem Sziget in Ungarn, eine mehr als etablierte Größe, die sich die Bühne im Hauptprogramm mit u.a. Robbie Williams teilt. Und so ist es fast logisch, dass bei mehr als 1000 Live-Shows und über 3 Mio. Views der ESC Single Nackert bei youtube nun auch die Alben Habediehre und Europa kurz vor der Vergoldung stehen. Wo vor einigen Jahren barfüßige Blechbläser in Lederhosen und T-Shirts zu Beginn belächelt wurden, gilt dies heute als Markenzeichen einer einzigartigen Band, die es versteht auf höchstem Niveau Menschen mit ihrer Musik zu begeistern und mitzureißen, ob in Bayern, ganz Deutschland oder in Europa. Nach Europa kommt Around The World - entsprechend hoch sind die eigenen Anforderungen an das neue Studioalbum nach 4 Jahren. Und so wurde 2016 bis auf wenige Ausnahmen live fast gänzlich pausiert, um sich vollends aufs Songwriting und die Produktion im nun eigenen Studio zu konzentrieren. Für das Single-Mixing wurde Peter Schmidt (u.a. SEEED, Peter Fox) ins Boot geholt und kurzerhand das Album Master bei Sterling Sounds in New York (u.a. Adele) erstellt. Das Resultat sind 11 starke Songs, mit denen LaBrassBanda nun ab 09.01.17 auf eine knapp 6-wöchige Welttour gehen wird, bevor am 3. März das neue Album Around The World erscheint , sowie ein Tag später das große Jubiläum gebührend mit einer 10 Jahre LaBrassBanda Show in der Olympiahalle München gefeiert wird. Die Anspannung vom Start ist unterdessen den Gesichtern komplett entschwunden. Die Augen öffnen sich, sie signalisieren große Vorfreude. Der Videodreh zur ersten Single Indien Explosion (Bauwagen), bei welchem die 7-köpfige Band in einem mit Raketenantrieb ausgestatteten Bauwagen die Exploration neuer Länder und Kulturen unternimmt, war bereits ein erster Vorgeschmack auf, das was LaBrassBanda auf ihrer Around The World - Tour erleben werden. Bei dieser Truppe und mit dem starken Album im Gepäck kann es eigentlich sofort losgehen.

What Is a World?

In What Is a World? Pheng Cheah, a leading theorist of cosmopolitanism, offers the first critical consideration of world literature´s cosmopolitan vocation. Addressing the failure of recent theories of world literature to inquire about the meaning of world, Cheah articulates a normative theory of literature´s world-making power by creatively synthesizing four philosophical accounts of the world as a temporal process: idealism, Marxist materialism, phenomenology, and deconstruction. Literature opens worlds, he provocatively suggests, because it is a force of receptivity. Cheah compellingly argues for postcolonial literature´s exemplarity as world literature through readings of narrative fiction by Michelle Cliff, Amitav Ghosh, Nuruddin Farah, Ninotchka Rosca, and Timothy Mo that show how these texts open up new possibilities for remaking the world by negotiating with the inhuman force that gives time and deploying alternative temporalities to resist capitalist globalization.

War-torn deserts, jihadist killings, trucks weighted down with contraband and migrants--from the Afghan-Pakistan borderlands to the Sahara, images of danger depict a new world disorder on the global margins. With vivid detail, Ruben Andersson traverses this terrain to provide a startling new understanding of what is happening in remote ´´danger zones.´´ Instead of buying into apocalyptic visions, Andersson takes aim at how Western states and international organizations conduct military, aid, and border interventions in a dangerously myopic fashion, further disconnecting the world´s rich and poor. Using drones, proxy forces, border reinforcement, and outsourced aid, risk-obsessed powers are helping to remap the world into zones of insecurity and danger. The result is a vision of chaos crashing into fortified borders, with national and global politics riven by fear. Andersson contends that we must reconnect and snap out of this dangerous spiral, which affects us whether we live in Texas or Timbuktu. Only by developing a new cartography of hope can we move beyond the political geography of fear that haunts us.

The author of The Handmaid´s Tale and Oryx and Crake engagingly explores her lifelong relationship to science fiction, both as a reader and as a writer. At a time when the borders between literary genres are increasingly porous, Margaret Atwood maps the richly fertile crosscurrents of speculative and science fiction, slipstream, utopias and dystopias, and fantasy, and muses on their roots in the age-old human impulse to imagine new worlds. She shares the evolution of her personal fascination with this branch of literature, from her days as a child inventing a race of flying superhero rabbits, to her graduate study of the Victorian ancestors of SF to her appreciations of such influential writers as Marge Piercy, Rider Haggard, Ursula K. LeGuin, Kazuo Ishiguro, Aldous Huxley, and Jonathan Swift. As humorous and charming as it is insightful and provocative, In Other Worlds brilliantly illuminates ´´the wilder storms on the wilder seas of invention.´´

From 2015 to 2017, Peter Sagan achieved the seemingly impossible: he won three road race World Championships in a row, ensuring his entry into the history books as one of the greatest riders of all time. But to look at Peter´s record in isolation is to tell only a fraction of his story, because Peter doesn´t just win: he entertains. Every moment in the saddle is an opportunity to express his personality, and nobody else has succeeded in making elite cycling look so much fun. From no-hands wheelies on the slopes of Mont Ventoux to press conference mischief with clamouring journalists, Peter exudes a passion for the sport and a lovable desire to bring smiles to the faces of his fans. So, for the very first time, you will have the opportunity to glimpse behind the scenes of Peter´s world. You will discover the gruelling training programmes necessary for success, and how Peter copes with the pressure of high expectation. You will feel that sense of elation when crossing the line ahead of the pack, and moments of desperation, like in 2017 when Peter realised he wouldn´t be allowed to challenge for his sixth Tour de France green jersey. But what better tonic than to ensure a third year in rainbow - an achievement which may never be repeated again.

´´I promise you have never read a story like this.´´-Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter Inception meets True Detective in this science fiction thriller of spellbinding tension and staggering scope that follows a special agent into a savage murder case with grave implications for the fate of mankind... Shannon Moss is part of a clandestine division within the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. In western Pennsylvania, 1997, she is assigned to solve the murder of a Navy SEAL´s family-and to locate his vanished teenage daughter. Though she can´t share the information with conventional law enforcement, Moss discovers that the missing SEAL was an astronaut aboard the spaceship U.S.S. Libra-a ship assumed lost to the currents of Deep Time. Moss knows first-hand the mental trauma of time-travel and believes the SEAL´s experience with the future has triggered this violence. Determined to find the missing girl and driven by a troubling connection from her own past, Moss travels ahead in time to explore possible versions of the future, seeking evidence to crack the present-day case. To her horror, the future reveals that it´s not only the fate of a family that hinges on her work, for what she witnesses rising over time´s horizon and hurtling toward the present is the Terminus: the terrifying and cataclysmic end of humanity itself. Luminous and unsettling, The Gone World bristles with world-shattering ideas yet remains at its heart an intensely human story.
