should I tell about the Space Invaders? I think you
was the summer of 2010. 3 years after I left Vibravoid.
I was jamming a lot and my only project which came
together frequently (once a year, hahaha…) was
the Freak City Band. A jamband were I played in, which
opened the Burg Herzberg Festival every year at the
mainstage. But I became bored of the Freak City Band.
All spaceheads already left the band and the jams
went more and more into Blues. Blues is a respectable
music. But I don´t like the blues pattern and
I couldn´t drink as much Southern Comfort as
necessary to chum up with them. I even don´t
like Southern Comfort.
in the last few hours of the festival Tipi Mike happened
to me. We had some great space jams in a first aid
tent at the festival. Together with DJM and others.
After 2 hours of jamming I asked him if he´s
interested to found a band. So we became the Space
Invaders. Together with DJM, Dirk Bittner (both of
Electric Orange) and our first part-time drummer Tom.
But Tom wasn´t available constantly, so we were
looking for a drummer who wanted to do a fulltime
job. We found him with Dennis Gockel from Weltraum.
3 albums, an official bootleg, a lot of freaky shows
& collaborations with good old friends and special
guests later, we are an established band in the european
Currently we play with Baal Brain, an old fellow worker
of mine, with whom I rigged lights in the Cologne Arena.
