Special secret Mary Ocher Fashion Week appearance for Tata Christiane.
Shortly before the first lockdown Mary returned to Europe for selected dates, fresh off new recording sessions and tours of North America, Australia and New Zealand. She has toured 30 countries with the much celebrated "The West Against The People" and its companion release "Faust Studio Sessions and Other Recordings".
Over the past decade Mary has been persistently creating passionate, uncompromising work, socially and creatively pushing against the current, dealing with subjects of authority, identity and conflict. Her work is as enchanting as it is polarizing, covering a vast musical range.
"The West Against The People" was released on H.J. Irmler's label Klangbad (of Krautrock pioneers Faust). It features collaborations with elusive legends Die Tödliche Doris and Felix Kubin and an essay* elaborating on the themes of the album and analyzing the current sociopolitical climate*.
Quite a bit of new material featuring exciting collaborations awaits a post-pandemic release, while an autobiographical comic book ("MOOP!") featuring illustrations by 23 international artists was released earlier in 2021.
