This is a short story, but a great one. Marcie's Still Waiting was created as a studio only project by Rainer Spachmann and Rainer Winschermann at the latter’s Mollycat studio in Velbert-Langenberg, Germany, in 1984. Minimalistic synth wave, some really upbeat tunes here then some moody, dark, cold songs there. All with the appropriate amount of guitar... and a touch of lovely saxophone! The two Rainers would both write and perform the songs with the occasional help of Frank Maakaron (formerly Behnke) at the keyboards and Thomas Döbber doing some bass guitar. Ms Anne Weber and Nicole Klank contributed with her heavenly voices on a couple of tracks. The first four songs recorded in 1985 were released on vinyl, self-produced on the Mollycat label and firstly distributed by Wishbone Records. Alan Bangs from the radio programme ‘Nachtrock’ at Westdeutscher Rundfunk would play the record almost daily. The number of fans rose immediately and soon you could hear ‘A Mysterious Song’ at many clubs around Europe. A second batch of the EP was subsequently distributed by Roof Music with a different cover artwork. Seven songs written and performed by Spachmann and Wischermann during 1985 and early 1986 remained unreleased, but later in 1986 Rainer Spachmann moved forward on its own, writing and recording four more songs at the Muuß studio in Kiel, this time with the help of Thomas Hartung playing bass and M.A. Mozart playing saxophone. Anne Weber would be there again also, co-writing and adding the female touch to one of the songs. These four new songs would go on vinyl as well, the ‘Mirrors And Daydream’ EP was released by Roof Records and shortly after MSW vanished from the face of the earth. They never played live, no pictures of MSW as a band exist, but what a legacy they left behind. Almost 30 years later their timeless music is far from being forgotten, it sounds fresh just as if it had been written this very morning. Their two vinyl releases still very sought after, so it was high time of reviewing their short history and give them a deserved second moment of glory.
