Kaum erschaffen, reißen die vier Jungs ihr musikalisches Werk wieder zu Boden, um neuen Bereichen Ausdruck zu verleihen. Nie werden Konzeptionen blind gefolgt, immer wieder werden sie von den eigenen Protagonisten angezweifelt. Ein lachender Narr, der über das Leid weint! Ein wütender Clown, der melancholischer Agonie verfällt! Ein tanzender Derwisch, der den Ruhepunkt sucht! Possenreißer, die die Wahrheit sagen! Lügner, denen man alles glauben sollte! Turn on! Tune in! Drop out! Das war schon der Wahlspruch Ken Keseys („Einer flog über das Kuckucksnest“), der zusammen mit den Bewusstseinsrevoluzzern Timothy Leary und Allan Ginsberg gemeinsam in einem Bus, „Further“ genannt, die Staaten bereiste. Sie nannten sich die Merry Pranksters. In dieser Tradition verstehen sich auch MARY PRANKSTERS ...keep on rockin' Mary Pranksters - the german Rock/Metal Band from Saarbrücken It’s the mixture between Energy, Joy of playing and know-how, that represents Mary Panksters.
MP - those are four versed artists from the genre of Rock/Metal, Funk/Fusion, Crossover and Alternative, and are very experienced and successful in what they are doing. Nobody would "just" listen to songs like "Drop out", "Rain", "lucid sun divine" or the rock ballad "Closed Mind". The guys of Mary Pranksters seem to swim against any stream.

MP beem you into a time between 70's and the new millennium, they move between criticism and humour, politics and love, joy and pain, without giving the opportunity to peg them as this or that. Just created, the four guys already tear their musician labour of love down to the ground, just to let space for somne other areas that want to be expressed.
No conceptions will be followed blindly, but always doubted by their own protagonists. A laughing fool, who cries over the sorrow! A furious clown, who becomes addicted to melancholic agony! A dancing dervish, who looks for the silence-point! A Prankster, who say the truth! A liar from whom one should believe everything! Turn on! Tune in! Drop out! That already was the slogan of Ken Kesey („One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest”), when he travelled in the bus called “Further” around the states, bringing the consciousness-revolution together with Timothy Leary and Allan Ginsberg.
