Germany calling..........

Post by Ribery » 13 Oct 2011, 10:52

Hello all.

I'm originally from Sheffield and followed the band around the country on tours such as Meninblack, Folie 1 and 2, Feline, Aural Sculpture etc. My first gig was Manchester Apollo in July 1980.

I moved to Germany in the mid 80's and didn't see the band again until 1992 in Munich, between then and about 2003 I followed them around Germany, France, Switzerland on a few tours but my most recent gig was a few years back now, though I hear there is a European tour in prospect next year so here's hoping !

I did see Hugh Cornwell in Hannover at the Ener-City cafe not that long ago too.

I understand that there are one or two of my trusty (or crusty) old travelling companions from those early 80's tours on here :grin: .

Favourite album is, and always has been, Black and White.

Other hobbies : Military history, Football (Bayern Munich and Sheffield United), Cats (yes not rats, cats).

Right I'll have a quick look around........

Welcome Ribery, my first gig in your neck of the woods, was at the "Dusseldorf / Philippshale" German Stranglers gig back in '88... lively fans... the Krauts!

They have a small but loyal fanbase. I'm always amazed by the amount of people who say they've never heard of the band until you play them a few tracks and hear "Oh I love that, I just didn't know who it was".

Thanks for the comments everyone.
