Biography

Vocalist Mona Mur (born Sabine Bredy, in Hamburg, Germany to Polish parents) first graced the German music scene in 1982. In her quest for the angry sound of her times she soon hooked up with FM Einheit, Marc Chung and Alex Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten. As Mona Mur Und Die Mieter they recorded the 12inch “Jeszcze Polska”, straight away conquering NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS’s Single of the Week slot. Distinctly averse to commercial success the group decided to disband after their first release.

Mona Mur lived a wild life in Paris and Berlin, which shaped the black sides of her following musical projects. Together with members of Einstürzende Neubauten, Stricher and Flucht nach Vorn she resurrected a new incarnation of Mona Mur in 1985, playing many concerts in the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Bremen (with Sonic Youth) and Berlin - foundation stones for her cult image until today. Then she finished her first proper album, the self-titled Mona Mur (1988, RCA) with the help of Dieter Meier (Yello), JJ Burnel and Dave Greenfield (The Stranglers).

In 1990 Mona Mur and Dieter Meier hired the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and Polish rockstar and producer Grzegorz Ciechowski (Republica) for their Album Warsaw (unreleased at the time). Mona decided to take a break from singing and turned her energy to Taekwondo, achieving the 3rd DAN. She entered the German National Team and became International German Vice Champion twice.
