Helge Schneider

Who the-skull-guzzling holes-in-humor is on, is likely to enjoy delicious with Helge Schneider plates. Or live with one of his bands, for example, the “old sausage faces with bloodshot eyes and pinching under the arms to narrow jacket”. Or in private with one of his thrillers or one of its films.

Great skill and absolute nonsense, with these opposites working born in Mülheim an der Ruhr on August 30, 1955 Schneider. Spends his youth in his own words with Helge vile growing up and getting older, like everyone else. As it should be as a future musician, he climbs with five for the first time a piano stool and exerts itself with seven fingers on cello bloody.

With 16 Helge separated by mutual agreement and not finish the school to start a draftsman apprenticeship. Just one year later he is the special Begabtenprüfung at the Duisburg Conservatory of Music. Nevertheless, his teaching years he spends not only behind the wing. He devotes himself extensively worldly things: Dealer with Neckermann, Bürohengst, forklift operators and landscapers are just the highlights of his extra-musical activities

.

With 22 years his preferences clearly show. Since 1977 he has worked exclusively as a musician. Band projects (Schneider / white duo aka El Snyder & amp; Charly McWhite), radio and television recordings, silent film accompaniment, commissions and acting (including with Christoph Schlingensief) provide his livelihood. However, it will take another 7 years to Helge with its own feature-length program comes at the start. To be unclassified of newspaper people as comedian, Helge designated therein as “the singing Herrentorte”.

Are they the true Slayer? Lap Axl Rose a pig for them? In addition: placebo, Helge, Andreas Dorau & amp; Sven Regener, 5 questions to edge etc.

In 1989, he published his first recorded music with the old white title “His greatest successes”. Angefressen of the record industry, he honored us since then with his loopy audio creations. 1992 follows the final break-through with the fifth album “Good Tach”. A year later passes through dark channels his first film “Texas – Doc Snyder holds the world in suspense”in the cinemas. With”There’s rice, baby,”his seventh album, he celebrates a broad comedic feast on a sold-out 6-month tour. Following this, he lets the cat out of the bag. wants to say, she sends on urinal.”Katzeklo”conquered the Republic and makes him an icon among Mr. pies. On the side he wrote his first book,”Take your clothes off, you old Hippe”and turns his second film”00schneider – hunting on Nihil Baxter”

.

mid-90 gives him his record company a first gold record and wants in return a new album from him. With “It rattles in a box”and the associated”comeback”tour he comes to the wishes of its donor rolls. Alongside he can film (“Praxis Dr. Hasenbein”) and write (“The murderer with the tights”) can not be. In Walter Moers animated film”Little Asshole”he borrows the”old bag”his voice. Meanwhile, it’s the year 1997. Helge released the double-CD”Da Humm,”on which he, inter alia,”Skein skein Fatze”are the best. His 7-member touring band he adds the descriptive name”Helge Schneider & amp; the old sausage faces with bloodshot eyes and pinching under the arms to narrow jacket”

.

Then, to lust, to sit as a solo artist in the limelight. “The keys God comes along to hobnob”will be a success as expected.”Egg Salad – A woman walks his way,”his new book, appear in 1999. For the implementation of audiovisual he tries really tough guys. With Tomas Alkier (dr), Eric St. Laurent (guit) and Thomy Jordi (bass), he recruited three musicians who are committed to the hard rock and establishes with them the band”Helge Schneider & amp; The Firefuckers”. In the studio they play the CD “egg salad in Rock”and go on extended tour, but Helge cancels before the official end.”Too loud people, I want to be funny again! I need time someone who plays with the broom percussion and organ, and so again”. His love of jazz proved to be stronger than the Muscles and tattoos of Firefuckers. “Since I have more freedom and can improvise more.”

Behind the jokes: a leaning back late work

.

In the millennium year Helge change the record label and released “books out – class work”, another milestone in his career. A sold-out tour and a book (“The Sheik with dog hair allergy”) later, he cherishes again solo appetites: “Plautz full”

.

“Out of cactus”, its 2003s CD, waits et al with “Helge Mörchen song”on. For the accompanying”Forgive me, baby”tour he committed the Jazz giants Jimmy Woods (bass) and Pete York (dr). In addition, he has devoted himself extensively to the theater. At the Schauspielhaus Bochum has the same year his musical”Mendy – Das Wusical” premiere. It goes without saying that the piece about love, intrigue, envy, cones and police grandiose celebrating success with critics and audiences.

In 2006, Helge takes the lead role in Dany Levi’s film “Mein Führer – The Truly Truest Truth About Adolf Hitler”. Who is the main character of the story, the Helge has to play, so it should be clear. In the comedy, for which Klaus Maria Brandauer was obliged told Levy a very surprising version of what happened the end of World War II at Hitler’s headquarters.

I met the master of nonsense-entertainment after the revelers-time in a hotel in Cologne. Previously I had with some other journalists and editors the opportunity an extract from Helge Schneider’s new feature film – to look at (the official start on April 1) “Jazz Club The early bird catches the worm”. And I already had my great joy.

While Helge with “I Brake Together” (2007) breaks up again to an endless tour, 800,000 people look to the leader-film in the cinema, which is then highly controversial and hotly. Also contributes to Schneider even when, suddenly distances itself in an interview from the finished film.

At some point in the course of 150 concerts flies Schneider to the slogan “Apokalüze Nau”and so he names his enthusiastic tour motto to. At Christmas time a live album under the same name appears. Despite the many months on the road and private happiness – Schneiders girlfriend Maria the girl Frieda gives birth – Schneider yourselves no rest. Over the Christmas holidays, he wrote the novel”A love in six-eight time – the great novel by Robert completed fate Fork”.

In March, the Federal Association of Piano chooses the all-rounder at the Musikmesse Frankfurt for Pianist of the Year 2008. Winner of the doped with 2,000 euros ceremony were in previous years, inter alia, the politician Otto Schily, Paul Kuhn and Götz Alsmann.
