Octan1Throwback Tuesday!
Claus Thoden, the drummer of my first high school band is celebrating his birthday today and when I posted an old band photo from 1981, I thought I should share that with you too.

As you can see, we were a 3-piece band with me playing the bass.
And as you can guess from our outfits and our overall attitude, we were a camera-shy boyish small town New Wave band, singing German lyrics about adolescence issues.

Octan2Our biggest success was the participation in an Open Air festival in the Lueneburg Heath region.

Bandmembers were: Michael Gunjevic – Vocals & Guitar
Claus Thoden – Drums
yours truly – Bass
Sorry, there are no audio recordings – and I’m glad there aren’t…. 😉
