Riding the Formation



Wie kann man die Entstehung einer „Supergroup“ beschreiben. Vielleicht am einfachsten mit einem Wort: Wahnsinn



Trotzdem ein paar warme Worte zur Historie der Band von damals bis heute:
Im Juni des Jahres 2016 rotteten sich drei, mehr oder weniger, junge, gutaussehende Typen zusammen um die Geschichte des Rock ´n´ Roll neu zu schreiben. Schnell fand man heraus das es ein doch recht großer Vorteil war, dass jeder der drei vorgab, mindestens, ein Instrument spielen zu können. (Bam Bam – Drums / Kevin - E-Gitarre, A-Gitarre & Gesang / Balu – A-Gitarre, Bass & Gesang ) Die drei erkannten, dass dieser Umstand nicht zu unterschätzen war, wollte man die Welt musikalisch zu beglücken.
Da die Randbedingungen somit geklärt waren, kam man zu den immens wichtigen Dingen, welche eine richte Rockband ausmacht – Welches Bier brauchte man und vor allem wie viel? Diese Punkte wurden sehr schnell abgehakt, da man sich in der Getränke Frage und bei der Menge sofort einig war. Vor allem sollte es viel sein..
Ein alter Keller wurde schnell zur Heimat der drei und schon gingen die Proben los. Das Projekt „Riding the Madness“ nahm seinen lauf.

Darauf ein dreifaches „SKOL“

Im Folgenden wurde ein Mann an der zweiten Gitarre erprobt, leider ohne Erfolg. Im Februar 2017 stieß dann ein älterer, junger, dynamischer Typ zum Wahnsinn. Dick R. (Richard) Trotz vieler, intensiver, Versuche wurde die Band ihn nicht mehr los. Na, dann Prost! Seitdem bringt er seinen unvergleichlichen Stil am Bass und an der E-Gitarre in die Songs ein und eine neue Bier Sorte musste auf die Einkaufsliste.
Zu viert ging die Reise dann weiter.

Leider trennten sich im September 2017 die Wege von Kevin und dem Rest der Band. Wir wünschen ihm alles Gute.
Zu dritt ging es dann erst mal weiter, bis Anfang 2018 ein neuer Vierter Mann an der Gitarre einstieg. Und wieder ein neue Sorte Bier hielt Einzug.
Zu viert gab es dann auch die ersten Auftritte vor richtigem Publikum… „Beer, Beer, we are drinking Beer.“
Aber auch das Bündnis mit dem neuen Mann, hielt nicht lange an. So wurde der Biereinkauf wieder unkomplizierter.

Im Juli 2018 wurde dann noch mal ein Mann an der zweiten Gitarre ausprobiert. Bier spielte keine Rolle, egal welches, hinein damit. Es war aber nur ein sehr kurzes Gastspiel. Anscheinend sind die 3 Typen der Band nicht kompatibel mit anderen Menschen.
Oder doch! Zeitgleich wurde ein Mann an den Reglern eingestellt. H.G. stieß zur Truppe. Wie zu erwarten: neue Biersorte.

H.G. ist seitdem für den Live Sound der Band verantwortlich und anscheinend hat er den richtigen Grad an Wahnsinn, um länger zu bleiben.
Es wurden, mit den verschiedenen Lineup´s, mehrere Live Gig´s gespielt und in Zukunft sollen noch einige dazu kommen.

Dann passierte, im Oktober 2018, das unvermeidliche: Die vier haben den dunklen Keller verlassen und zogen in einen richtigen Probenraum. Das Blöde, das Bier muss nun weiter geschleppt werden. Das Gute, alles besser, alles schöner.

Nun sind die Planungen ab Sommer 2019 wieder richtig durchzustarten, zwar zu viert, aber nur drei an den Instrumenten.
Wir hoffen, dass man sich irgendwo bei einem Live Gig sieht.

Aktuelles Line-Up und so soll es bleiben:
Balu Bam Bam Dick R. H.G.
Gesang Schlagzeug E-Gitarre Sound
Bass Cajons Bass Kluge Sprüche
Akkustik-Gitarre Gesang Alles besser wissen

Rockige Grüße von den Wahnsinnigen
und bleibt durstig

Riding the Formation


How can you describe the emergence of a "Super Group"?
Perhaps, easiest with one word: madness




Nevertheless a few warm words, about the history of the band from then until today:

In June 2016, three, more or less, young, handsome guys gathered to rewrite the history of Rock ´n´ Roll.
They soon found out, that it was a big advantage that each of them pretended to be able to play at least one instrument.
(Bam Bam - Drums / Kevin - E-Guitar, A-Guitar & Vocals / Balu - A-Guitar, Bass & Vocals )
The three recognized that this circumstance, was not to be underestimated if you want to make the world musically happy.

Since the boundary conditions were thus clarified, they came to the immensely important things that make up a true rock band - which beer they need and at the end, how much?
These points were quickly settled, as there was immediate agreement on the drinks question and on the quantity. Above all it should be, A LOT..

An old cellar quickly became the home of the three and rehearsals started.
The project "Riding the Madness" took its course.

Therefore, a triple "SKOL".

In the following, a man was tested on the second guitar, unfortunately without success.

In February 2017, an older, young, dynamic guy went mad. Dick R. (Richard)
In spite of many intensive attempts, the band couldn't get rid of him. Well, cheers!
Since then, he brings his incomparable style on bass and electric guitar to the songs and a new kind of beer had to be added to the shopping list.

The four of us continued our journey.

Unfortunately Kevin and the rest of the band parted ways in September 2017.
We wish him all the best.

The three of us went on, until a new fourth man on guitar joined the band in early 2018. And again a new kind of beer came in.

Four of them gave their first performances in front of a real audience... "Beer, Beer, we are drinking Beer."

But even the alliance with the new man, didn't last long. Thus the beer purchase became again easier.

In July 2018 another man was tried out on the second guitar. Beer didn't play a role, no matter which one, as long as beer was ok for him

But it was only a very short guest performance. Apparently the 3 types of the band are not compatible with other people.

Or it is! At the same time a man was hired at the controllers. H.G. joined the troop.
As to be expected: new type of beer.

H.G. has been responsible for the band's live sound ever since and apparently he has the right level of madness to stay longer.

There have been played several live Gig´s with the different Lineup´s and in the future there will be some more to come.
Then, in October 2018, the inevitable happened: The four have left the dark cellar and moved into a real rehearsal room.
The stupidity of beer has to be dragged on.
The good, everything better, more beautiful.

Now the plans have to be really started again from summer 2019, four of them, but only three on the instrument
s.
We hope to see you somewhere at a live gig.

Current Line Up and so it shall remain:

Balu Bam Bam Dick R. H.G.
Vocal Drums Electric guitar Sound
Bass Cajons Bass Smart sayings
Acoustic guitar Vocal Know everything better


Rocky greetings from the lunatics
and remain thirsty

Riding the lyrics

  • queue_musicMeaning of Life

    Born from the womb of mother
    Sheltered under the protection of father
    Secured in its mother's arms
    Hallowed by the pride of the father

    Mother’s milk, security and love
    On the way to “real” life
    Strangers show you the direction
    The chance to individuality: low

    Refrain:
    What’s the meaning of life
    Who tells us what to do
    Where does this all lead us to
    What is the purpose
    What´s the meaning of life
    What´s the meaning of life

    Then, we have to go to school
    Learning is what counts in life
    The stupid will never achieve anything
    Only the educated gain success

    Education, profession, earning money
    The job from nine to five every day
    wife, kids, summer vacation in the south
    unstoppable, life makes its way

    Refrain:
    What’s the meaning of life
    Who tells us what to do
    Where does this all lead us to
    What is the purpose
    What´s the meaning of life
    What´s the meaning of life

    Sixty-seven, the nice life calling
    Finally time for you and your family
    Camper, holiday, doing what you want
    Finally what you’re born to do

    Refrain: What’s the meaning of life
    Who tells us what to do
    Where does this all lead us to
    What is the purpose
    What´s the meaning of life
    What´s the meaning of life

    Fun in age, wherever you look
    but then, then suddenly, unexpected
    death

    Earth crying
    Sky turning black
    Seas dying
    Blazing flames
    The gates to hell

    Dark forces
    lead our destiny
    Evil turns good
    Good mutates into evil
    Universes ahead of chasm

    Ref:

    slaves of our own lives
    monuments breaking into pieces
    worlds decay in chaos
    yours is not the life
    you’re just a slave

    slaves of reason
    battles against demons
    the evil prevails
    mutants destroy life
    the world around us turns black

    slaves of life
    full of fear, without a future
    the world in ashes
    the planet’s life sucked dry
    the planet on its road to void

    Ref:

    slaves of our own lives
    monuments breaking into pieces
    worlds decay in chaos
    ours is not the life
    we’re only slaves

    slaves of desires
    no chance to salvation
    universe faced with end
    life erased from earth
    world fallen into ruin and death

    Ref:

    slaves of our own lives
    monuments breaking into pieces
    worlds decay in chaos
    the life’s been ceased
    Slaves are not needed anymore
