Variations on Rock ’n’ Roll Attitude around John Cougar Mellencamp's Tattooed Leather Jacket just finished a new project related to the collection we are managing. We had the opportunity to acquire John Cougar Mellencamp tattooed leather jacket from the ’80. This custom made jacket was part of the private collection of John Mellencamp's guitarist Mike Wanchic & Echo Park Studios.

Nothing speaks to the image of John Mellencamp in the 80's quite like him in a leather jacket. It's iconic of his career. Throughout the last 3 or 4 decades, you would have been able to catch him in several different looks, but this one may be the most unique.

World of TAO guitars

TYS presents the World of TAO guitars: John Joveniaux and Serge Michiels are passionated about guitars! The most impressive at first sight is the look of the guitars. This may be best described as Neo-vintage. These are the Bugattis of the guitar world. The TAO Guitars are an impressive work of art and sound. Discover it with Willy Pultz a veteran of the Luxembourgish music scene.

Film projects supported by TYS supports local film projects by supplying instruments out of its collection.

Recent loans were done for two Andy Bausch directed films Freddy (2015) and Sixty8 (in production).

Freddie is a short film that combines biographical and experimental elements to portray the double life of the exceptional talent. The film is directed by Andy Bausch and produced by Nilton Martins, who plays also the leading role, and Frame-Art Media.

TYS Video Production for My Own Ghost presents My Own Ghost, a rock band from Luxembourg founded in 2013, live at LED. The music relies on Julie's warm and powerful voice and on the musicians' different backgrounds, ranging from pop to metal, by adding some electronic tweaks. In the meantime the new album, produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Apocalyptica, Amorphis a.o.) and mastered by Svante Forsbäck (Rammstein, Sunrise Avenue, Bullet For My Valentine a.o.), is ready to hit the stores at the end of 2016.

New Website

Nevertheless it is still work in progress. Indeed we have a lot to do!

The TYS collection part is updated with new information and acquisitions we have done over the last 3 years. We hope that you can now better understand what the purpose of the collection is: telling the story of the birth of the electric guitar and as most instruments were owned by musicians it also tells the history of rock music.
