1996 – present (21 years)
It started as a one-man band in wels, upper-austria, when Raumschiff Engelmayr, outfitted with guitar, drumcomputer and vacuum cleaner released a CD (TROST - TR 065, 1998) with a 600g handmade steelcover and began playing concerts disguised as space-indian.
The next step was a rock formation (already with derhunt on bass) accompanied by two fine jazz reeds. After recording the "blue" album (TR 075, 1999) for trost records, Raumschiff and derhunt started searching for a new drummer. Eventually they found ddkern (fuckhead, quehenberger & kern, ….) who has been rocking the drumkit since then.
As a trio they recorded a new longplayer (TR 085, 2002) and started to tour europe disguised as chickens, ladies or sunflowers. Due to many live cooperations with leonid soybelman (ne zhdali, kletka red), kknull (zeni geva), dieb13, franz hautzinger a.o. from the jazz/noise scene, the electroexperimental label mego caught some attention and did the 12" maxi „drabule“ (mego 66, 2004).
In between releases on tape, cdr, and even on double 5" vinyl with live/self recorded stuff came out on labels such as rock is hell, imvated, rasputin records hurenschädl and nawoatna.
Right now the masters for the upcoming release (produced by patrick pulsinger) are finished and a tour around europe is beeing planned (summer/fall 2008).
