An Introduction to The Sonnenbergs
Gabba Gabba Hey, all ye maggots who wish to kneel before Zod! How are you these days? Well, that’s just wonderful! Upon request of tens of people, we have assembled some information about our ragtag group of misfits:
The Sonnenbergs consist of the following five skidmarks of the apocalypse:
- Rocky Sonnenberg (vocals, guitar)
- Annie Sonnenberg (vocals, bass)
- Andy Sonnenberg (guitar)
- Danny Sonnenberg (drums)
Our band was originally called “Serbian Mouth Sauna”. However, due to a barrage of threatening cease-and-desist letters from the International Association of Mouth Sauna Operators (IAMSO) and the Serbian League of Mouth Sauna Operators
(SLMSO), we were forced to change our name. Since Rocky and Andy were born in Wiesbaden, a one-horse town in the greater area of Frunkfart in Hesse (Germany), they thought it might be worthwhile to have some sort of reference to
that tragic fate in the band name. After some deliberation, we were convinced that we should name ourselves after one of the boroughs of Wiesbaden. Since “The Dotzheims”, “The Heßlochs”, “The Mainz-Amöneburgs” or “The Rambachs” just
sounded stupid, we settled for “The Sonnenbergs”, which, admittedly, sounds mentally challenged to say the least. Many a tear was shed on that not-so-glorious day.
Our sound can be described as a not-so-patented blend (although “bland” would be more appropriate) of tipping-our-hats-to-the-giants (The Sonics! The Stooges! The Kinks! Ramones! Def Leppard!!!) Rock N’ Roll which is sure to put
the nuts into your fruitcakes this Holiday Season, or at least render your choreomaniacal indie-disco limbs inert. Hailed as “a band”, “a Berlin-based band” or just “douchebags” by several venerable local music magazines, The Sonnenbergs
continue to make their audiences slit their wrists, pierce their eardrums or abandon listening to music forever. If you want to regret approx. 60 minutes of your life, or if you have a knack for masochism and/or self-mutilation,
then please do come to our shows and witness us destroying your faith in music once and for all.
