History of my Bands:

It all started with the very first cassette recorder that was built ever at pre-teen-age (I had this first model) with sound experiments in the bathroom (for the reverb) and tin cans (where the mike was brought into for chorus-flanger-effekt). That was when I hadn't even reached puberty. I also misused the parental piano. I still have my first recording. Years and literally decades went by. In 1982, I met Stefan, a drummer and SF-Writer Colleague. He invited my to my first session with the bass player Mattes. In the classical , moisty bunker of course. In the course  of time I played in 20 - 30 bands, sometimes parallel in 2 or 3 at the same time. This included 2 years as a drummer before focussing on other fields. Beginnings (Rehearsal room bands) before and until 1984 Shardik Zeit-Los First Gigs (5 minor bands) 1985 - 1986 Schwitters, said the Tic-Toc-Man (1987 - 1988) Don Chaos - vocals Art Lip - trumpet Les Kharma - main guitar Heinz A.
