Frequently asked questions

Question: Is there any more chance to get a copy of the Limited First Edition CD from Anyone's Daughter "Piktors Verwandlungen" with this poster? (DJ from Stuttgart)

Answer: Sorry, the Limited First Print is sold out but I guess the band still have a few of it with poster for sale in their own shop.

Tempus Fugit was founded by Dirk Jacob and Uli Theurer back in 1999. The label was based near Stuttgart in the southwest of Germany. Tempus Fugit was conceived as an independent record label and music publishing company for progressive rock artists. In those years the label collaborated with various independent music distributors as well as specialized mail-orders around the world. We quickly established also a consulting and services segment as part of our business activities for connected and other artists. In 2001 Uli left the company in order to focus on the business he took over from his family.

In 2003 Tempus Fugit joined the InsideOut/SPV group and relocated to Kleve. This was a great opportunity to offer better services for the artists. After joining Insideout/SPV, our artists could benefit from a very professional marketing, promotion, and distribution network around the globe. For the first time we could offer simultaneous releases in Europe, Northern America and Japan, and could accompany these releases with wider marketing and promotion activities than before.

In order to distribute, market and promote our music in the world of (legal) downloads as well, Tempus Fugit joined forces with the independent distributor Finetunes in 2007 and created a constant presence on platforms such as iTunes, Amazon MP3 Downloads, Musicload, and many more.

In 2009, when InsideOut left SPV and joined the Century Media group, Tempus Fugit decided to continue working with SPV to distribute our CD catalogue and new releases.

TEMPUS FUGIT MILESTONES (just to name a few out of many):

1999: Our first CD is a compilation album by Tom Newman with Mike Oldfield. Of course these names opened some doors! The third album by Ines, “The Flow”, is our first release of an established artist with new music.

2000: Release of the RPWL debut album “God Has Failed”, which also is our first album that made enough sales so we are able to invest profits in further artists. Our services department successfully distributes many CDs by external artists such as Isildur’s Bane, Rockenfield Speer, Rudy’s Journey, and Glasshammer.

2001: The first project in collaboration with Matthias Ulmer of Anyone’s Daughter. Together with Matthias we create the successful 2-CD set “Requested Document Live 1980-1983”, a compilation of previously unreleased live tracks which shows Anyone’s Daughter's musical spectrum in those days and fills a gap because their early albums were not available at that time.

2002: At the peak of the German Medieval Wave, our publishing department realizes a well-donated record contract for “Minnenspiel”, the 3rd album by medieval rockers Adaro. (Ritchie Blackmore outed himself as a big fan of Adaro’s music by sending a congratulation fax to the band.)

2003: Tempus Fugit joins the InsideOut/SPV group. With Ritual from Sweden we sign our first international artist.

2005: Release of the album “World Through My Eyes” which is still our most successful release until now! German TV network WDR records concert shows with RPWL and Adaro for their famous “Rockpalast” format.

2007: Both Ritual and RPWL highlight the Baja Prog Festival in Mexicali (Mexico).

2008: Both RPWL and Ritual highlight the Rosfest in Philadelphia (USA).

2009: Eureka releases an amazing concept album about Sir Ernest Shackleton’s heroic Antarctic voyage in 1914-1916. Mastermind Frank Bossert manages to enthuse such wonderful musicians like Billy Sherwood (Yes), Troy Donockley (Iona), Yogi Lang (RPWL), and others to contribute on the album “Shackleton’s Voyage”. The artwork of the CD booklet is refined by photos of the famous Australian photographer Frank Hurley, originally taken during Shackelton’s Antarctic journey in 1914 to 1916.

2011: Almost 10 years after the actual concert and 30 years after the release of the original album, Anyone’s Daughter recreate Hermann Hesse’s work “Piktors Verwandlungen” (Pictor’s Metamorphoses) on CD, with Germanys famous poet and singer/songwriter Heinz Rudolf Kunze.

2012: After many years of attempting we finally got the license from EMI Records to re-release and remaster the three missing Anyone’s Daughter albums in our catalogue, hooray! These are the albums “Anyone’s Daughter” (1980), “In Blau” (1982) and “Neue Sterne” (1983).  We released them together with the outstanding “Live” double-album (1984) in November. A big gap in the German progressive rock history was closed with these Remaster CDs.

2014: Another highlight is the license of all five Kaipa studio albums from 1975 - 1982, including the hard to get 1980 album Händer from Polar/Universal Music. These five albums will be re-released as Remaster CDs and Vinyl during 2015 and 2016.
