what's the racket?

August 13 sees a happy re-union for a few tunes at least with Helge Schneider playing organ and Pete on drums at the Dresden Ufer Pete called in to see Helge at the Lustspielhaus in Munich and they even had a small session together in the afternoon. Just for fun.
Since the sad loss of Jimmy Woode, Helge has been playing his solo shows to great effect, but being the dedicated musician that he is, the idea of playing with old pals is always appealing.
The Dresden gig is enormous and Pete will make a hectic flight from Switzerland to be there.

Those who remember the Klaus Doldinger Jubilee Tours of the mid-Seventies may be interested in a gig on the 24 July at 18.00 in the Kulturzelt an der Sportanlage Krai between Waakirchen and Miesbach. Klaus Doldinger’s Old and New Passport will play. Special Guests are also promised and Pete has been invited!!!!

The Drum Legends are producing a single for the club, disco market. Herman Rarebell has written a piece called “DRUM DANCE” and the single length and extended version are being edited and mixed this week. On the extended version there is a lengthypercussion section which will inspire the outrageous dance routine on the video.
None of the Drum Legends themselves will dance, to everyones great relief.
