1998. Dan Shandog and Ralph on Fyre, both already busy in their own bands "Wendy Bones" and "Supersonic X", knew from the beginning that their musical interests were pretty much the same.
Who else in their rural hometown Balingen in southern Germany was that much interested in all kinds of Rock'n'Roll-Music, especially the raw cuts during the 60s and the 70s. Combined with their distinct interest in early Punkrock the Stereo Satanics went on their way. As there were neither a bassplayer nor a drummer present to join them, Fab, a musical genius, local Underground-Rock-Icon and originally guitar-player and frontman of the infamous and now deceased "Lilly Lavelle" took over on bass and J. Wilde, parttime DJ, devoted Elvis-Fan and originally bass-player for the "Wendy Bones" choose his place (...) Mehr anzeigen behind the drums.
So a troublesome threesome with Dan, Ralph and Fab, everyone the creative spirit of his own other band, tightened together by the more restrained and quite J., exploded in a variety of wild Punkrock-Tunes to live out their visions of raw, untamed music, grounded on their rudimentary and old-fashioned roots and spured on by Ralph on Fyres hateful, sad, mean and desperate lyrical insights into the minds of persons you really never want to know.
Just a few months after the first rehearsals, they recorded a four-track demo-tape called "Euphoria" and started out with a few savage, loud and not much appreciated shows.
1999. As Fab was unsatisfied with his minor part on bass and caught muscular problems after practising 24 hours a day, the first difficulties arose. He joined his third band, the "Plane Austers", as a paid guitar-player and from then on couldn't manage neither his timetable nor his uncontrollable temper and was therefore replaced by Basti van de Meijgloeckljes.
2000. In this lineup the band recorded 5 more songs and released two 7"s on Out-o-Space Records, one a split with their pals "The Hicktown Heroes". As Basti never really integrated in the band and finally stopped to appear, Fab helped out for a few gigs but anyway the band was on the downward spiral. Ralph was more interested in his new band the "Cha Cha Guerillas", Dan and J. formed the "Demolition Spitfires" out of the ashes of the Wendy Bones. The band never ceased to exist but doesn't wrote any new song until 2003, when they caught new fire. Fab was back as a regular and the audiences finally began to dig the Stereo Satanics and their music.
A CD-R, with all songs the band had recorded until then, was produced to satisfy the needs of a new and younger audience that couldn't understand the bands inclination for vinyl. This CD should also symbolize passed and unstable times and a new beginning with more spirit and strength than before. Which doesn't mean they quited playing their old songs. The band just skipped one or two songs in their whole history and infuriated with the new power hailed the early classics on top of the same lungs as the newest, back to the first song they ever wrote: Stay Insane!
2004. Locked in the dark, humid and cold vault they call their practise room, new songs broke out en masse as the four-piece again started to rehearse and combine their creativity. The band also started to book gigs on their own and finally in September 2004 recorded 12 new songs for the first full-length album, that came to release on 20th December 2004 on Out-o-Space Records. The title of the album is "Pirate Love".
2007 "More fragile in it's sound, it's themes and it's compositions, just two songs on Whole Lotta Nothin' break the 3-minute-mark. Although we thought this would confuse the audience, people turned out satisfied with the progress. Stereo Satanics will be moving. "Primitive" is one of my favourite songs, ever. It's on the only 7" of New Yorks The Groupies of 1966 and I thought to cover it for years. "54-40 Or Fight" is by recently deceased Dead Moon. It came out in the late 80s, I guess. The idea to cover one of their songs came in October 2006 as we ran over the band a dozen times in a few weeks, so it's more like obeyeing to a kind of higher force. And as Dead Moon was Underground in its purest and most honest sense; more than music, more than fashion; we're very happy doing a deep bow for the people in this band and everything they brought to life!"
2008 Stereo Satanics on their way away. It's different but it's definetely Stereo Satanics. What it really means ... we have to discover. Maybe it's clearer in a year. It contains no cover-versions as the previous albums. "Surrounded by Ghosts" was born.
Till today shows were played all over Germany and in Switzerland with bands like Electric Frankenstein, New Bomb Turks, The Briefs, Nine Pound Hammer, Streetwalkin' Cheetahs (all USA), Mensen (Norway), The Riots (Netherlands), Peacocks, Hellmute (Switzerland) and loads of german bands like The Boonaraaas, The Radiation Kings, Uncle Ho, Crosscut, Rock'n'Roll Stormtroopers and the Renderings just to name the most famous ones.
