Last album by Doc Schoko released in 2009 by play loud! in conjunction with the film "Doc Schoko: Oktopus im Pentagram" (play loud! (live) music series).
On this new record some of his heroes shine through but never dominate what is too much Doc Schoko himself. Mark E. Smith (The Fall) invited Doc Schoko to be his supporting act or as we say in German to be his VORGRUPPE.
Both, Smith and Doc Schoko appeared on play loud!’s “silver monk time – a tribute to the monks” (pl-02). Village Voice’s Don Allred wrote: Doc Schoko's doom-swallowing "Sei Still" smirks at its English-speaking doppelgänger, "Shut Up." “schlecht dran / gut drauf” has been mastered by founding Faust member Hans-Joachim Irmler.

play loud! also presents the following Doc Schoko releases:
(pl-07) schlecht dran / gut drauf (2009)
(pl-13) einen gegen (2001/2009
(pl-14) tränen + wölkchen ep (2004/2009).
More digital releases from the large back catalogue will soon follow, among others, a “Best of compilation curated by famous mastermind of SYPH, Harry Rag.
