|SCHINDLER - latest update 18th APRIL 2004|
biog from somewhere around 5th JUNE 2000
Formed in December 1998, Schindler have risen from the ashes of Mass - apocalyptic angular guitar punks and purveyors of Independent chart topping singles, albums (producers include Steve Albini and Martin Rex) and survivors of numerous. European tours. Members of recently disbanded hardcore band Shutdown were also recruited to complete their musical vision. Before even playing a show theband had attracted the attention of Martin Atkins (PIL, Killing Joke, Ministry, NIN, Pigface) who jumped straight into the producers seat for their first recordings as a fully functioning unit. The results of these sessions then found their way into the hands of a certain JJ Burnel (Stranglers) who produced Schindler's new demo.
The same Burnel-sessions became a single "Time" which was released on the Eastworld label (via Plastic Head Music Distribution) on 21st June 1999. In the meantime, the band's hectic schedule was filled with a UK mini tour in March as special guest to Spear Of Destiny, and a good number of spare loud shows.
In October 1999 the band released "Everybody Wants", a second three-track CD on the Eastworld label. The improvement in song-writing is evident, and the tighter production (Dave Chang) supported the catchy yet uncompromised Schindler message. In the same month, the band embarked on a one month tour in support of Brit legends The Stranglers. Once more, the band received enthusiastic reactions, especially for a well developed stage confidence and a straight-to-the-point loud attitude.
Today the band are playing more shows around the UK while further developing their musical vision of heavy melancholic and guitar driven sound. Heavily emotional, melodic, powerful and loud are words used to describe the bands sound along with comparisons to bands such as Nirvana, Stranglers, Fugazi, Joy Division and Husker Du.
June 12th see's the release of the bands third single "Three Year Old" on ORG (ORG215) the title track will be accompanied by "Almost Bursting" and "Nobody Said". The band will commence a full UK tour commencing May 4th thru June 25th . Another new track "Gusher" will be on the June issue of metal hammer's covermounted CD.
