Some of Jochen’s Former Bands:

Buckethead_350Buckethead (1993-2000, with Hilmar Voigt, Patrick Kempf, Birger Löhl) This was the German band, not the US guitarist of the same name. Buckethead started as a jazzcore band under the influence of Victims Family, Minutemen, etc., but soon also wrote indie-pop songs and ended up in post-rock territory. Buckethead shared the stage with Melt-Banana!, All, Ninewood, Saccharine Trust, Rhythm Pigs, Helios Creed, Janitor Joe, The Notwist, Hammerhead, Big Chief, But Alive, and others. The band released a CD EP, two full-length CDs, and a vinyl 7″EP on Epistrophy, plus some compilation tracks. Hilmar later joined Hinterlandt in its trio incarnation.

Feedback Recycling (1988-1992, with Henning Bosse, Martin Ulrich) started as a grindcore band under the influence of Carcass, Heresy, Lärm, etc. Soon developed into a more complex noise metal rock thing. Toured with Californian noise punks Flipper, and Boston-based grindcore freaks A.C. Feedback Recycling also shared the stage with bands such as Godflesh, Kong, and others. The band released a vinyl 7″EP and a vinyl 7″Split EP with Mutant Gods on Ecocentric, plus some compilation tracks.

Professor (1992-1993, with Tim Ilsemann, Martin Ulrich) started as a deathmetal grindcore band and never developed into anything else. The short-lived band still has some devoted fans due to the uncompromising approach of putting speed before musicality. Professor shared the stage with Pitch Shifter, Mutant Gods, and others. The band released a vinyl 7″ EP on Epistrophy which was later released as a 3″ CD by Tumult in the US.

SnobClub_350Snob Club (1998-never, with Gregor Hennig, Matthias Weishoff) started as a noise rock band and that’s exactly what it is. Thanks to the incredible drumming of Gregor and the violent bass by Matthias, this band is well and truly brutal. The music is so intense it is ridiculous. The band is still together, but only plays live every 11 years, so two shows have already been played.

Home Of The Lame (1995-1996, with Felix Gebhard) started as a lo-fi home recording songwriter thing. Jochen soon left, having the insight that Felix is doing a much better job at this. Felix has since then developed Home Of The Lame into a great band playing melancholy indie pop songs. They have toured extensively and released several albums. The original duo line-up released three cassette tapes on N.Ur-Kult. Felix later joined Hinterlandt as bass player in its trio incarnation.

Suckspeed-with-JochenSuckspeed (1992-1994, with Michael Bothe, Oliver Betram) was a metalcore heavyrock band that sounded a bit like a cross between Motörhead and Slayer. The band was reasonably successful in Germany in the 90s. Fans included some fairly devoted metalheads. The rhythm section was solid, but guitarists tended to come and go. Jochen was the last in line, effectively disrupting the band by means of guitar noise and uncommon stage behaviour.

There were some more bands, but they were mostly short-lived projects so there’s not much point in listing them all.
