The ODD PERSONS or DIETMAR & the BEAT BOYS
"I have no regrets," Walter Ortel says today. "In retrospect, time was more important than anything that followed." Ingo Cramer is completely different, he doesn't like to be remembered, and if you ask him about his activities in a beat band, he devalues them. After all, Star Club Records producer Siggi E. Loch has chosen him as guitarist in his German dream band.

Today, Cramer's spare time is too valuable to answer insignificant questions about his history, but he has always been a very special man. Walter Ortel: "He always wanted to spice things up a bit, with refined harmonic sequences. Then we shouted to him, 'Man, Ingo, now let's shred the guitar!'" Ingo Cramer: "I wanted to do more demanding things, not just show off and wiggle my head. But there was no consensus in the band." Peter Fehlberg: "So Ingo stood on stage like a pillar of salt. Although he plucked a hot bowel. The band then thought, maybe that's what he'll get when he's standing there with a Loriot face. It became a kind of trademark, one placed like a statue while the others tear out the jacket lining."

With the success of Rock 'n' Roll and bands like Edgar & The Breathless or Rebel Guys, other Berlin guys also wanted to get the rind cracked and dust off the prettiest girls. In 1962 Frank (surname unknown), equipped with a big marching drum, and Walter Ortel, not clumsy on the piano, got together to pull real rock 'n' roll off the leather. Heavily impressed by Jerry Lee Lewis, they had started to hit their fingers bloody on the keyboard. Fats Domino went off their hands well. Walter had a classical education, which didn't break his Rock 'n' Roll obsession, but in the eyes of Ingo Cramer he was a little higher in the band hierarchy than the common Plebs.

In pairs a band is only poorly equipped, so Peter Fehlberg came with a Strippenbass, also called Teekiste. The Beat Boys. To give the band the right optical rock 'n' roll touch - which a tea chest could hardly do - Peter bought something electric, a Framus bass. And with this bass, there's a reason.

Paul McCartney once sold his pre violin Framus bass to a Berlin rock 'n' roll musician named Peter, and Fehlberg also bought his Framus bass from a Peter: from Peter Blaar (Edgar & The Breathless). When Peter Fehlberg decided to make his career with the police higher than that of a Rock 'n' Roller, another bass player was needed, and another Peter was at his service: Peter Pfaar. Of course he also took over the said Framus bass from Peter Fehlberg, and the instrument served him faithfully - until his wife sat on it, and so the Framus bass was literally in his ass.

Together with Pfaar Dietmar Schütze (†) came as a singer. Armed with a guitar, he had previously been a solo entertainer at the relevant pubs in Berlin, where he had made the public insecure - with schmaltzy stuff. Together with Schütze came the distinguished Ingo Cramer, and because his father plucked the guitar in the RIAS dance orchestra, his filius was also very familiar with this instrument; so the Beat Boys had a decent guitarist. Dietmar and the Beat Boys was now the banner under which they sailed. And as such, they made the rounds in youth centers and took part in the canter to the Star-Club Band Competition in the Deutschlandhalle Berlin (February 22, 1964). When you crossed the finish line, you were number 3.

It took barely a year, and Dietmar and the Beat Boys set off for Hamburg to bring a personal musical greeting to the Star Club. Walter Ortel: "After Johnny Weissmüller had seen us at the Star-Club Kapellenwettbewerb [1 January to 3 January 1965], he thought we were good enough to be regularly engaged in the Star-Club." With Johnny Weissmüller he naturally meant Manfred Weißleder, the manager of various Hamburg chapels and Star Club owners.

In Berlin, too, the Beat Boys now had better doors open to them, such as those of the Liverpool Hoop or the Hasenheide. Also the Hajo Bar... With advancing times, the change of direction in the hairstyle from back to front, also a readjustment of the name became necessary. The somewhat simple Dietmar And The Beat Boys had to give way to the more modern The Odd Persons.

In August 1965, The Odd Persons made another guest appearance at the Star Club. This time they were much better received than at the first guest performance. So the band was invited to make a recording. Back in Berlin, The Odd Persons went to the Audioton Studio at Ostpreußendamm in Lichterfelde to put their intention into action. The result is Star Club Records sampler contributions. 

Peter Fehlberg, meanwhile retired from the band and as a policeman on the tracks of bad boys, made the manager by the way. He provided the band with so much work that none of the members regretted the step into profit. Well, Ingo and Dietmar perhaps: the one much too sublime, as a nestling and seven years younger than Dietmar; the other, as an almost fatherly friend, much too mature to be able to derive anything other than a shake of the head from the childlike pleasure and pubertal jokes of Frank Peter Kaetzke and Walter Ortel. With Vitamin B Fehlberg managed to lure a Spanish club owner to Berlin to listen to the band. The result was an engagement in Spain for September '65. The Tropicana Club in Castelldefels near Barcelona showed the Spaniards where the Beathammer hung in Germany. One evening Salvador Dali walked in, his cheetah on a leash, and Walter Ortel was allowed to present a sculpture in the name of the house. "I didn't realize it was the great Dali. But he had a heart for bands, he had invited another Berlin band to live and experiment on his estate."
