Biography

Göttingen, Germany (1994 – 2005, 2009 – present)

Guano Apes are an band formed in 1994 in Göttingen, Germany. The group consists of Sandra Našić (vocals), Henning Rümenapp (guitar), Stefan Ude (bass) and Dennis Poschwatta (drums). Their energetic rock mix mostly described as , going from rap over funky, from melodic singing to hardcore screaming of their lead singer, made them one of the most successful German rock bands ever.

The band was already established in 1994 by Rümenapp, Ude and Poschwatta, when the vocalist Sandra Nasic joined later that year. They recorded 3 demo tapes, but their career took off in 1996 after winning the Local Hero contest for unsigned bands. They used the prize money for recording their first hit “Open Your Eyes” and shot a video for that song. They also signed to GUN/Supersonic Records.

“Open Your Eyes” was released as a single (#5 GER) and was followed by their debut album Proud Like a God in 6 October 1997. The album ranked #4 and it was certified platinum in Germany. Two other singles helped the album’s popularity and sales: “Rain” (#76 GER) and “Lords of the Boards” (#10 GER). “Lord of the Boards” is performed as the closing song on every Guano Apes concert.

In 1999, they issued the stand alone single “Don’t You Turn Your Back On Me” (# 50 GER).

    Anyone ever reckoned the melody of "The Rains of Castamere" (Game of Thrones TV Series) in their song "Sugar Skin" (first half of the song)? The song was recorded by The National for that series. Does anyone know from whom the melody is originated?

    Hey Guano Apes. Vor Jahrtausenden, es war Herbst 1997, entdeckte ich euch und verliebte mich in eure Art, Musik zu machen. Damals schrieb ich an einem Mystery-Spannungs-Zitate-Freundschafts-Biografie-Thriller mit dem Titel "Frei". Und ihr und euere Musik wurdet ein Teil dieses E-Books, vor allem Sandra, auch wenn natürlich nicht sie in der Geschichte mitspielt. ;) Der Besuch eines Konzertes von eich Ende '97 hinterließ offenbar großen Eindruck, wie man in dem Buch lesen kann. Gerade, weil ich nun diese verrückte Geschichte veröffentlicht habe, wär's schön, am 3.11. ind LKA in Stuttgart zu kommen, aber ich hab gerade mal so die Obdachlosigkeit verhindert, die Kohle fehlt. Euch ein wundervolles Konzert hier in Stuttgart. Nette Grüße, Linus http://www.lastfm.de/user/lalalaundbababa/journal/2014/10/30/6a9v08_%22frei%22_(e-book),_ein_thriller-mystery-freundschafts-biografiebuch_von_linus_lumpitzsch
