October 1983: The Coronation Hall of Aachen Town Hall, the 100-year
anniversary of the launch of the phone in Aachen is celebrated. In March of
the same year came together a group of music-loving students, to shake up
Aachen blues scene. From the loose band project long been a musical
institution in the Aachen region has become: the Somebody Wrong Bluesband.
They are currently:
Christine Isensee, Vocals: Born in 1969, hears the next Somebody Wrong
Bluesband like jazz, pop and classical music and appreciates Holly Cole,
Björk. Mothers Finest, Keb Mo and Smashing Pumpkins - to name a few ...
Their first LP? "Embarrassing for adding to," said the strong-voiced singer.
Still, the first single t Blondie's "The Tide Is High" was. We come next to
the musical to the other pleasures of life: mineral water as their favorite
drink? Okay, this
chicken and pasta, the grand finale chocolate. It's that simple
Albrecht Peltzer, Guitar: Born in 1957, especially appreciates handmade
music without electronic gadgets, travels Eric Clapton - if allowed by the
budget and the time - almost world behind, listening beside especially
Brothers, Grateful Dead and everything Jam this band is active around. The
first single was - honest! - "Hold Tight" by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich. The record collection was later expanded to include other
Alex Wilde, guitar and vocals: Born in 1956 hears music in his own words "querbeet"
- except pop and operetta! He especially appreciates the musicians who put
taste before technology and also the purchase of his first LP

also: Rabbit - best in sauce and a drink that makes intense pleasure at
slightly dizzy, but not sore throat - and in addition to the musical we know
the culinary preferences.
Jochen Stark, bass and vocals: Senior of the young team. Born when Leo
Fender introduced the Telecaster to the market. For the few that it does not

first album just a Beatles-wheel - the white album. Red wine and Thai food
the kitchen favorites, house fly and dust mites are the favorite pets.
Martin Peltzer, Keyboards: Born in 1952, Dave Greenslade, Chick Corea and
Gregg Allman are his musical idols. But on his first LP gave guitar, bass
and drums set the tone: Fresh Cream. On a favorite dish can be defined

juice with a later dizziness - and the menu is complete. Nerves do our keys
only one man: broken cable - and other technical pitfalls before the show.
Chris Andrae, Drums: Born in 1962, he sets the rhythm, but bring calm, it
can be rare. And he is the third member of the SC, which started with the
Beatles into the musical life. Chris always know which cable belongs where
how much Hall needs the singer - even if she disagrees. As a reward, the
band served Stracciatella or Sachertorte - which also the culinary
preferences are mentioned.
