Rainbirds


Ulrike Haage & Katharina Franck were in the midst of promoting & touring their In A Different Light album, when they were offered to take part in a performance at the theatre Volksbühne am Rosa Luxenburg Platz, in Berlin. It was the opening event of the 1993/94 season, & they asked Tim Lorenz, then only committed as a session drummer, to come along. They rehearsed two days to work out a repertoire of rainbirds-songs, instrumentals by ulrike and a couple of pieces written exclusively for theatre plays and the group stein. Read more on Last.fm
Ulrike Haage & Katharina Franck were in the midst of promoting & touring their In A Different Light album, when they were offered to take part in a performance at the theatre Volksbühne am Rosa Luxenburg Platz, in Berlin. It was the opening event of the 1993/94 season, & they asked Tim Lorenz, then only committed as a session drummer, to come along. They rehearsed two days to work out a repertoire of rainbirds-songs, instrumentals by ulrike and a couple of pieces written exclusively for theatre plays and the group stein. then they appeared under the motto "two faces in a different light" on september 2nd 1993.

it is this performance that katharina likes to remember as her favorite, and it was after this one, that tim, ulrike and katharina decided to move on as the new rainbirds trio. they kept performing and touring under the pseudonym "three birds of a feather" while they were working out a new band sound, considering their special line-up: keyboards, vocals/ guitar and drums. they were without a deal then, but rough trade records came to see them play live a couple of times, and while the band proceeded to tour under their original name in 1995, the contract came to be. they entered the puk-studio in denmark in oktober 1995 and the self-produced "making memory" was released in march 1996.

apart from some bewilderment as to what rainbirds would look and sound like now after one more metamorphosis, the reception was warm. more touring and festival playing, and back in the studio in april 1997. this time co-producer jon caffery recorded and mixed the album "rainbirdsforever" in his own la chapelle-studio in belgium. this album was released in october and was greatly appreciated in the media, and the tour in jan/feb 1998 rewarded the trio with sold out clubs and exceptionally good reviews. they decided to tour once more in may to record two shows on 24 track analog and will release rainbirds3000.live in january 1999.

check their tourdates, keep in touch, be informed about all the many new things that are about to happen with rainbirds in the future. and the future is now. for further information http://www.rainbirds.com/ discography : * rainbirds3000.live (1999) * forever (1997) * making memory (1996) * the mercury years (1995) * in a different light (1993) * two faces (1991) * call me easy, say I'm strong, love me my way, that ain't wrong (1989) * rainbirds (1987) Read more on Last.fm.
