Biography

Germany in decline. A whole nation is in a state of depression and is sinking into
lethargy and self-pity in the face of continuingly bad news. An entire nation? No. A
small punk rock band from Berlin don’t stop transforming kicks in the teeth into
musical creativity and spitting it back into the face of the numbed public.

On this mission, the 7 guys of the BRAINLESS WANKERS use a mercilessly direct
songwriting producing catchy and individual tunes without falling into the trap of
interchangeability. The traditional no-time-for-solo punk rock outfit (Olli - voc., Felix -

git., Flo - bass, Obi - drums) is supported by 2 trumpets (Calle - #1 & Tim - #2) adding
compact and fronting melodies while the lyrics deal with social and political
problems as well as personal emotions in a tongue-in-cheek way beyond the usual
stereotypes. In the BW repertoire you can find the high speed tune along with the
mid tempo song with pop-appeal immediately drilling its way into the brain cortex.
Instead of obeying the narrow rules of the scene police, the Berlin combo follows its
own definition of punk rock. The Wankers shout against the slowly economization of
every day life, mosh against the flood of shitty cover versions only seconds later and
wrap the whole thing in handy 2:30-min-energy bars shooting directly into the
listeners’ veins to make them realize: It’s better to rock than to whine.

Since their 2000 debut album “Endorphin”, that e.g. brought the Berliners
support-shows for bands like Bad Religion, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Donots
and Millencolin, they have attracted an ever-growing number of punk rock fans
