The Beatles: The Beatles Mach Schau in Hamburg

English language, 540 pages, A4 Size, hardback, full colour with 600 illustrations; never before seen photos, documents, adverts, memorabilia, record covers, newspaper reports, reproductions of contracts, letters, bills, receipts, etc. etc.
In-depth stories about the recordings made in Germany, histories of all the places they played, even exclusive picture of their 1966 concerts, this is THE definitive book on the Beatles’ visits to Germany.

This book is called THE BEATLES MACH SCHAU IN HAMBURG and it is written by the author who is generally regarded as the number one expert when it comes to all things Beatles in their pre-fame Hamburg period, Thorsten Knublauch. Thorsten has lent his knowledge to various publications, including Mark Lewisohn’s Tune In book and this book is the culmination of over 30 years of work Thorsten has invested in this very interesting and generally underrated phase of the Beatles’ early career. So there is absolutely no one better qualified to write such a book, and what a book it has become! With a foreword by Jürgen Vollmer, the famous photographer who, along with Astrid Kirchherr took those iconic shots of the Beatles and invented their haircut, a middleword by Rüdiger Neber, member of The Bats with whom Stuart Sutcliffe performed a few gigs and an afterword by Howie Casey, saxophonist who played on several of Paul McCartney’s albums and world tours and also performed in Hamburg in the 1960s alongside The Beatles.

No Hamburg – No Beatles


 Much has been written about the beginnings of the Beatles in Hamburg. Those days are considered by many as the most important era in their rise to fame. Hamburg welded John, Paul, George and Ringo together even if they didn’t always play in the same group, or were even in the country at the same time. They came up with an incredible repertoire of songs, some of which would later emerge on their first records and continue until the Get Back sessions in 1969 or in solo projects up to the present day. From performing as a ‘living jukebox’ in the clubs where they had to play through the nights, they grew to become a stadium-filling supergroup. The Beatles played over 1,000 hours on stage in four Hamburg clubs from August 1960 until December 1962. They made studio recordings in each year and released their first record – albeit uncredited on the label. John, Paul and George lost one founding member and parted with another during these days but added Ringo to create a musical unit that may never be surpassed. This book will tell you everything you need to know about the importance of those Hamburg days for the Beatles – their lives, their experiences, their style, their recordings, their instruments, etc.! Rumours and myths that have persisted for decades will be re-examined in their historical context to determine if they’re true or not. Many new facts and details have been unearthed for this book, along with a huge catalogue of photos and reproductions of contracts, memorabilia and other obscure documents. In addition, the tragic story of Stuart Sutcliffe’s life in Hamburg is summarized in great detail. Pete Best played the Star-Club circuit until the end of 1964 and so his Hamburg story is told beyond his Beatles days.

Foreword by Jürgen Vollmer
In 1960 and 1961 the still unknown Beatles played in rock clubs in my hometown of Hamburg, each time for a few months, and I went to see them every night. Their looks - black leather jackets, hairdos a la Elvis - and the way they moved, sang and sometimes screamed the often libidinous lyrics of the American Rock 'n' Roll songs they covered - all that had a bombastic impact on me. Those young British rockers exuded on stage re-bellion and sex and inspired me, a student of photography, to be more daring as to how and what I photographed. From that time on I was striving for visual Rock 'n' Roll and first tried to express that in the spring of 1961 with the Beatles as my models (John Lennon used one of those photos in 1975 as the cover of his solo album Rock Roll).

A few months later I moved to Paris, where my desire to rock the norm led me to photograph rockers and young delin-quents, which culminated in my photographing some of them even while they were having sex. And that was really shock-ing at the time, because the sexual revolution still lay some years ahead. Having taken those photos made me feel like a real rebel, somebody I had wanted to be ever since I saw the Beatles play Rock'n' Roll. There was, however, a mutual influence between me and the rock musicians from Liverpool, as Paul McCartney pointed out in his foreword to one of my photo books in 1997: Be-cause when he and John visited me in Paris in October 1961 they bought the same kind of "artsy" clothes I was wearing and asked me to cut their hair like I did mine "and that was the beginning of the Beatle haircut" (Paul McCartney, from a 2007 interview). I had shocked people in Hamburg for years with my unusual hairstyle, which, through the Beatles, later became known as 'mop top'. After the "Fab Four" became famous I had very little contact with them. I became a professional photographer, spent my entire career outside of Germany and lived mainly in New York. But my time with the Beatles in Hamburg remained a highlight of my life.

Although I have not read this book, I am confident that the author stuck to the facts, because I know from per-sonal experience that Thorsten Knublauch is a responsible and tireless researcher when it comes to the lives of his idols. I profited on two occasions from Thorsten's enormous knowledge about the Beatles. The first time was during the preparation of my photo book The Beatles in Hamburg, published in 2004. He sent me an audio excerpt from a 1980 interview with Paul McCartney and a printed interview with John Lennon from 1967, in which both named me as the creator of the Beatle haircut.

I was very happy that I could include those two quotes in the book, because they refuted the widely believed lie that the famous hairstyle came from a woman in Hamburg, a false claim that was printed in the press and in books over and over again. The second time I got an even more valuable piece of information from Thorsten was in 2012, when a short documentary film about me was being shot. He told me that Paul McCartney had repeated the true haircut story on French television in 2007 and Thorsten even knew the exact date when it had been aired, so that our director was able to obtain the footage and insert it into the film.

Internationale Pilzvergiftung

The Beatles as reflected in the German press

Die Beatles im Spiegel der deutschen Presse

 The Beatles as reflected in the German press

 

Tens or even hundreds of thousands of newspaper, magazine and magazine articles are believed to have been written and printed about John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Pete Best and Stu Sutcliffe worldwide. Technical, factual, informative. Gossip, comments and columns. Whole series, hoppy-hoop reports with a glowing needle, rumors. At the beginning of the sixties, the Beatles quickly advanced to become hot (print) media favourites - as the noisy representatives of a new sound, as public-dangerous spoilsportsmen with endless hair down to their shirts. But the Liverpool musicians were also suitable milking objects, because they too surprisingly had private spheres, in which it was worth digging through time and again. And: When they were offered the Membership of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 1965, these guys even threatened to become house-trained, courtly and socially acceptable.

The beat fever, initially limited to Great Britain, quickly heated up to a global conflagration, and no printed product could escape the fascination - felt honest or played slimy - if one did not want to endanger the vital edition by self-inflicted ignorance. This was no different in Germany as a whole. Even the former'East Press' got involved: After homosexuality quickly ceased to function, syllable plumbers, true to the line, dealt with this four-headed threat to the West, which in the worst case threatened to fail to meet the target for turnip harvesting, in their usual brain-weak word-cancer. In the western part of the country, on the other hand, all journalistic registers were pulled out: Boulevard products loudly served people's voices, music and youth magazines made an effort to pant after Anglo-American specifications, clever weekly magazines made a deep impression with a varying share of competence. From the flourishing sales multi to the struggling Heimatblättchen: Beatles are a must - for the young as bait, to the annoyance of the old.

The core time of the Beatle mania between Flensburg and Garmisch were the years 1963 to 1967, before that there were only warm-up exercises - even though the whole thing had started in Hamburg in June 1960. Even the legendary'Star Club' opening on April 13, 1962 - with the Beatles as the top act - wasn't even worth a single syllable to the entire Hanseatic local press. And the first Fab Four record on the Odeon label, Love Me Do/Please, Please Me, was not released by the Cologne Electrola before the end of February 1963. Even if hits like All You Need Is Love, Hello Goodbye, Lady Madonna, Hey Jude, Get Back and Let It Be would follow - the release of the'Sgt. Pepper' LP on June 1, 1967 was a signal, a turning point in the history of the band that had grown up at that time. Soon reports of (alleged) solo projects, plans to quit - including denials, of course - and internal differences of opinion accumulated. The Beatles were on the direct way to a (albeit still highly creative) community of convenience.

The Beatles as reflected in the German press

In between was an incredible marathon of success that changed the development of the entertainment industry in the long term. In Germany, the Bravo Beatles Blitz tour at the end of June 1966 (Munich, Essen, Hamburg) was one of the highlights - also with regard to the assisting roar in the press.

Much - or almost everything - that Schreiber hacked into the mechanical rattle machines some 40 years ago may have been forgotten. The material bundled for the first time in this book dates from a time when four highly creative world stars were denigrated as "baboons", "whimpering youngsters" and "beetle plagues" and recommended to a "zoo" - "animal" comparisons, which were apparently intended to amuse and yet - embarrassingly and depressingly at the same time - only reminded of a diction from the worst German past. It's a good thing that there was solid and clever (tabloid) journalism in parallel, which guaranteed many amusing productions. For example, when they reported on the "Beatles im Kreisjugendheim Schlossborn" or asked in February 1964: "Beatles wave already over?". When serious fashion problems arose ("What does the fan wear to the concert?"), a "wig fight in England" raged or suddenly new markets came to the fore: "Now there are Beatles stockings... and Beatle bread too". Or when the fan rapture threatened to get out of control: "Paul, you're so far away, she moaned -
