The J Conspiracy is an unsigned Progressive rock band from Germany.

Sunday March 9th, 2014 is an essential date for The J Conspiracy. After 5 hours of loose but creative jamming around in the rehearsal room the four musicians visit the concert of "Transatlantic" in Cologne. Right after this great show while drinking the last beer of the evening in front of the concert hall someone speaks out the essence of this day: "Tomorrow we have to talk". That's it! The J Conspiracy's line up was complete:

Ralf Brand - Guitar, Lead vocals
Christoph Buss - Keyboards, backing vocals
Karl Schlesinger - Bass
Heiko Loeb - Drums


At the same time as The J Conspiracy published their first song, the nearly 20 minute prog epic „Place Called Home" in August 2015, they started a unique media project titled "Music meets photography
In about one year fans, listeners and photographers from 18 different countries all over the world sent in nearly 200 pics of what they called their „Place Called Home". All this contributions can be enjoyed in a famous photoslider paired with the full length song.

2016: 17 months after the highly acclaimed debut The J Conspiracy launched their second track „The Glass House". This time no epic, but an essence of their musical preferences steamed down to 5 1/2 minutes: riffdominated progressive rock with spacey keyboard lines, a catchy melodic chorus, interesting grooves and time signature changes. Check it out at www.thejconspiracy.net.


Now The J Conspiracy is back with a new recording: Our version of the Pink Floyd classic "Have A Cigar".

There's a story behind this release and why it is exceptionally a cover version:
"The reason for us to release this track is that three fourth of the band is strongly involved in one of the biggest musical educational projects in Germany. Students and alumni of a high school in Essen (Germany) are coached by professional musicians working together to put a big open air on stage. After 2013 ("The Wall") & 2015 ("The Green Pink Floyd Day") this years event on September 15th & 16th focus on the performance of Pink Floyd's complete "Wish You Were Here" album. Ralf, Christoph & Heiko are part of most of the different varying ensembles at this weekend. Coaching and rehearsing with those young musicians was very inspiring and satisfying for us. Additionaly during the recording process it was great fun to give "Have A Cigar" a unique J Conspiracy attitude and a sound design that correlates with our own songs."


Now The J Conspiracy as a whole was the Special Guest at the Saturday show on September 16th. We get an extra spot to perform our version of "Have A Cigar" within the album presentation.
