On The Origin Of The Species Called Ape
the trial of a biography
2004. One day the climate changed in the hot steppe and the bananas became brief on the trees. Three apes left their housings without knowing from each other, and out of the blue they met for an almost three hour lasting jam session. These three apes concluded, or rather made the discovery, but actually only had an inspiration that, if they would join together to make music in form of CONVERTIBLE ROCK they never had to hunt for food again – instead they were able to use one of those modern inventions of mankind called “supermarket”.
No doubt, their way of making music is unique among the human beings, because it is freed from the norms of everyday life and nevertheless their tunes hits the centre of the pulse’s circle and meets the requirements of a good taste. Plus, all of them are extraordinary good musicians.
After that, as well as some cosmic hazy jives and several litres of nature’s brew later, the three apes, who now called themselves “3apes band” following some obvious pragmatic manners, were heavily attracted by the big city lights of Leipzig (Germany). So they appeared the first time on 20th January 2005 at the legendary Flowerpower. And without having a presentiment, the apes moved all the men and women that stuck in the evolution mire, to activate their very inner vigour reserves to be exhausted for ecstatic dancing.
The 3apes kept on performing until their pads were excoriated and shortly they brought their first album – the „Tidy And Well Dressed Gossip” (EP) to earth.
Later, these cosmic-comical figures won the “Courage Zeigen Contest” with a lot of sensation and attention, harvesting a lot of respect for it, as well as other fruits.
However, the 3apes band kept on playing again, only with stronger coat. So they performed with Johnny Winter (USA) - and this concert was recorded and produced by “Cäsar” Peter Gläser (Ex-Klaus-Renft-Combo). Further they shared the stage with Low Frequencies in Stereo (DK) – and with them a “movig snare”, Die Happy, Fotos, Mon Roe (S) and others.
In 2007 the album „Stark Raving Mad” was released with a big party at Victor Jara. And after their evolution tour that almost exceeded the human touch, in April 2008 they released the album „STARK RAVING MAD 2.0” – from the apes, for the apes and all the other people. Until this heavy and hot record release party at the Moritzbastei, Leipzig the band performed almost two-hundred times across the country. And everywhere where they sudden popped into a club’s scenery the people were dancing as if they were stark raving mad.
And so the show goes on, cause (r)evolution never ends.
