Artist / Band: JEANS TEAM
File Under: Minimal Christmas
Label: louisville records
Info: Jeans Team start in 1995 as a duo constisting of Franz Schütte and Reimo Herford. They found the legendary GALERIE BERLINTOKYO in Berlin Mitte and play their first official shows. For these shows Reimo and Franz performed to a preproduced video, they act as the companion volume. The 45 minute video ‘Baby' (1996) is Jeans Team’s first release.
1997 Gunter Kreis and Henning Watkinson complete the band and the virtual company is needless. Now Jeans Team become a quartet of flesh and blood. The eponymous luminous advertising is dismantled from a street corner in Berlin Wedding and becomes the illumination for Jeans Team live shows.
After a number of songs on compilations by 'Spielkreis' and the 'Bungalow'-label follows the first tour through Germany. To release both singles 'Hi Fans' and 'Ein Atom' Jeans Team found their own label 'Nadel Eins' in 1998. Each single includes three punk-instrumentals. Yet another tour and gigs in Paris and Amsterdam follow.
