YONKS

Now, that's what I call freedom! This 3-piece makes a whole lotta noise, and since there are no keyboards or 2nd guitars for back up while soloing, it's quiet a challenge for me to fill up the space there's left in a band with only drums, bass and guitar. After you're done, satisfaction takes over the place and it's all fun, all take-off, all wow! Frank and Dixie are just the right bad mutherfuckers it takes to come up with a 3-piece, in terms of excellence in musicianship and friendship. As it recently appeared to us:

 

Wanted => Band

Got => Friends

 

In terms of music, this is a crossover thang: We grab songs from the charts, like the ones of Madonna, the Sugarbabes, Lady Gaga, and the such, and take them to Rock City, with edge, crunch, volume, uptempo, and of course a guitar solo. Since this is a party band, there is also a big deal of rock classics in between. Wanna experience Smoke on the water without the Hammond? Welcome!

What's up, Ridge?

September 19th 2016

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 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
