UsBest

ca. 1992-1995, 2008/09


My favorite pastime in the 90ies, when we released a CD called 10 on one. Heart and soul of the Band was my brother Atti, who's not only a badass of a drummer, but also will stay in my heart as a friend 4ever. He's btw one of the most talented people I know, and he cut this video from a reunion concert we did in June 2009 (below), too (Check out the vid below and on myspace as well). With us was Ansas Strehlow (Kickhunter) on the keys and Kai Noll on vocals. On bass we had Victor Gomez from Argentina, who was later substituted by Artjom Feldtser (Maks & the Minors, Go-rillaz, "My favorite Russky"), during the reunion.

Though we didn't achieve world domination with this mixture of hard rock and groovy stuff, we created some good music 2gether, played some awesome gigs (Remember Greifswald? I don't, haha!), and we had fun galore.

 

And beer... :o)

What's up, Ridge?

I'm a bit excited 'bout a new project: Some years ago (I guess it was 2013) my good friend Sammy saw a YONKS performance at the Logo Hamburg and came up with the idea to cooperate with him on a Sammy/Yonks'ish kinda band with german lyrics. We developed (from scratch) and recorded some of these sailor/pirate-inspired songs a couple of weeks ago at Alex Mackenrott's (yes, the guy from Masterplan) place, not really knowing where this would lead us to. After listening to the results I must say, we came up with some fine, very special aural pearls I'd like to describe as "Sailor Heavy Rock". Holy shit, I'm proud of 'em, and I'm grateful Sammy called us! Now we're thinking of how to get this to you out there. Of course I'll keep ya posted!

Until then, welcome the refugees (the few that keep coming), stay calm and ROCK! \m/

 

Peace, Richie
