Toten Hausen has been on the road for 40 years. For the anniversary, fans can look forward not only to the recently released compilation “Alles aus Liebe”, but also to celebrate birthdays with the Düsseldorf punk band at various concerts. The tour began in Flensburg on Tuesday.
The Journey Begins in Flensburg: Classics and Entertaining Mistakes
The Flensburg audience experienced a special concert – because, according to Campino, it was “the last tester before it actually started.” The fascinating thing about it: “You try too hard. Sometimes mistakes happen, but it also entertains people.”
There was also a real classic on the set list that the band doesn’t play every night: “EisCooler Bommerlunder” from the band’s early days. “We had really great guests here in Flensburg,” says Campino, the founder of Club Planschie in Husby. “We played there in 1983. And we thought: We’ll do an encore with these early songs from then on.”
The evening was great fun for the audience in Flensburg – for the band as well. “The people rhyme well,” enthuses Campino. “You can see they haven’t forgotten the lyrics. We’re really looking forward to the concerts in the summer.”
“Everything With Love”: Klaus Maria Brandauer Says Hello
According to Campino, the title of the anniversary compilation “Everything Out of Love” goes back to actor Klaus Maria Brandauer: “Once he came to a concert in Austria. After the show I didn’t know I should go to him. Or not, I was worried, if it was the right event for him. But then he said to me: ‘You know what? Be as tough as you can – I saw nothing but pure love today’. In the end so these It worked fine for 40 years.”
Campino: “I was a dull boy with a hole in my pants”
When Campino came to hooliganism during his school days, he said that he did not want to rebel against his parents with his music – nonetheless, discovering the movement spread from England was a personal emancipation for him: ” I was a relatively sloppy guy, not particularly specific”, was actually second in line. Then I also had to wear my older sister’s clothes, often with a hole in my pants. Punk suddenly made it avant-garde by wearing old clothes with holes. It was as if the movement was made especially for me. It changed my life!”, says the singer on NDR television.
Die Toten Hausen: 40 years in almost a single formation
Barring the drummer, Die Toten Hösen still plays in their founding formation – a fact that the band appreciates more and more as they get older. “Our biggest achievement is that we have been able to maintain our friendship during this time,” Campino says. “Everyone thinks they are there for each other – even if we have arguments – like any other family. But the tablecloths never cut. We used to cut down on this happiness because it was so close to us Could have been. But today we can allow it.”
