Black Ass

Band, DE

German Band from Bielefeld. Several sessions with the Johannislust Orchester led to the foundation of Black Ass in 1978. In late 1978 their first and and only 7" self-release "Hot Lips Hot Hips / Teenage Desaster" was pressed in an edition of 1000. Due to the high fees of the GEMA it wasn`t played on German radio but had some radio-broadcastings in Spain. In 1979 serveral concerts were played in Barcelona. 1980 the band dissolved due to line-up changes. The line-up was: Werner Herrmann - vocals, percussion (also played in Rennquintett) Raimund Fuhrig "Ömmes"- conga, percussion (also played in several Reggaebands, Missus Beastly and Trio Furioso) George Kochbek - keyboards, vocals (also played in Virus (26), Skyline (11), Trio Furioso, and several other bands) Aze Petrovic - guitar, vocals (also played in Alan Smith Band (HH), Cool Spice (Nienburg), Kakadu Combo (BI), TransM (BI), 2nd Step (H), Juggle JAM (H) and Swing Score (H)) Michael Kleuker - bass (also played in Trio Furioso and Cool Spice) "Pit" Peter Meuffels - drums (also played in Frob and several other bands) Wolli Thümmler - sax ( also played as guest on the album "Dr. Aftershave And The Mixed Pickles" ‎of Missus Beastly) Jan Wörmann - sax
