The Rocking Stars: Rocking Stars (CD)

1-CD DigiPac (6-coated) with 28-page booklet, 25 titles, playing time 65:30 mns. 

Smash! Boom! Bang!
Beat in Germany
The 60s Anthology

These CDs are part of an extensive bear family, Smash! Boom. Boom!, dedicated to the German beat in the mid-sixties boom. At least 30 installments are planned, and each CD will contain between 20 and 30 tracks, all remastered for the best possible sound quality.

The fifties in the Federal Republic of Germany were not so much the Rockin' 50s, but rather a time in which German songs and pop songs were cultivated and the educated citizen booted into operetta. However, there were nests in which juvenile brood rehearsed the rebellion. In Rastatt in Baden, for example, there were four students who wanted to blow their ancestors' marches and show them the way. Dieter Kersten had a good voice, so he became a singer, and together with Jürgen 'Jox' Lammer he scrubbed the guitar. 

The Jox turned out to be the better one on the six strings, and so he became a melodic guitarist. Heinz Brunner wanted to drum, Curt Schwab had had piano lessons, so it was predetermined where he would be used. Together the quartet had a penchant for rock 'n' roll - Elvis, Little Richard, Fats Domino - but also less known things. The proximity to the American occupying forces made it possible. Busy rehearsals were the order of the day, mostly in Brunner sr.'s restaurant. (which - see above - was suitably called 'To the stork's nest'). One must not hide the fact that occasionally a clarinet could be heard, but soon one became aware of the stylistic confusion, and the part was first banished into his suitcase. In June 1959, the four boys unanimously chose the name The Rocking Stars at the local bathing establishment.

At parties and class afternoons they practiced their artistic performance, and then came the day when the first real performance took place: on November 11, 1959. Adelheid Schempf had been there since July and wanted to share the use of the only band microphone with Dieter (plugged into a radio with a repiled tape). Adelheid stayed with us for about another quarter of a year and still brought a lot of momentum into the shop - she got the first performances. Then she moved to the Karlsruhe Chapel of the Peter Kollenbach Combo. In September 1959 Bodo Przyborowsky had come to the great Schlagbaß. Now the band was almost complete.

The first big performance took place at the 'Golden Lion' in Rastatt-Lichtental. Adelheid had arranged the appointment with her father's support. She remembers, "I really had to kick the boys over there..."  This time Adelheid's younger sister Gisela was also involved. In the 'Golden Lion' the Rocking Stars had the big amplification system of the organizer at their disposal - an uplifting feeling for the school band. On 13 November 1959 the 'Badische Tageblatt' brought a large report about the carnival celebration, in which the group was mentioned only in one sentence.

"The Rocking Stars"

THE ROCKING STARS

Die Fünfziger in der Bundesrepublik, das waren weniger die Rockin' 50s, sondern vielmehr eine Zeit, in der deutsches Lied- und Schlagergut gepflegt wurde und der Bildungsbürger in die Operette stiefelte. Jedoch gab es Nester, in denen jugendliche Brut den Aufstand probte. In Rastatt im Badischen zum Beispiel waren es vier Schüler, die ihren Altvorderen mal den Marsch blasen und ihnen zeigen wollten, wo es lang ging. Dieter Kersten hatte eine gute Stimme, also wurde er zum Sänger bestimmt, und zusammen mit Jürgen 'Jox' Lammer schrubbte er auf der Gitarre. Der Jox sollte sich als der Bessere auf den sechs Saiten erweisen, und so stieg er zum Melodiegitarristen auf. Heinz Brunner wollte trommeln, Curt Schwab hatte Klavierunterricht gehabt, so war vorbestimmt, wo er zum Einsatz kommen sollte. Gemeinsam war dem Quartett eine Vorliebe für Rock 'n' Roll - Elvis, Little Richard, Fats Domino - , aber auch unbekanntere Sachen. Die Nähe zu den amerikanischen Besatzungssoldaten machte es möglich. Fleißiges Proben war angesagt, meistens in der Gaststätte von Brunner sr. (die – s.o. - passend 'Zum Storchennest' hieß). Man darf nicht verschweigen, daß gelegentlich auch eine Klarinette zu hören war, doch bald wurde man sich der stilistischen Wirrung bewußt, und das Teil wurde erst einmal in sein Köfferchen verbannt. Die vier Buben haben sich im Juni 1959 in der örtlichen Badeanstalt einstimmig für den Namen The Rocking Stars entschieden.

Auf Partys und Klassennachmittagen übte man sich in der künstlerischen Performance, und dann kam der Tag, an dem der erste richtige Auftritt stattfand: am 11. November 1959. Nun war seit Juli Adelheid Schempf dabei, die sich mit Dieter die Einsätze am einzigen Bandmikrofon (eingestöpselt in ein umgepfriemeltes Radio) teilen wollte. Adelheid blieb noch ca. ein Vierteljahr dabei und brachte doch mächtig Schwung in den Laden – sie besorgte die ersten Auftritte. Dann wechselte sie zur Karlsruher Kapelle der Peter Kollenbach-Combo. Im September 1959 war Bodo Przyborowsky am großen Schlagbaß gekommen. Nun war die Band fast komplett.

Der erste große Auftritt fand im 'Goldenen Löwen' in Rastatt-Lichtental statt. Adelheid hatte den Termin mit Unterstützung ihres Vaters besorgt. Sie erinnert sich: "Ich mußte die Jungs regelrecht dahin treten...".  Dieses eine Mal war auch Adelheids jüngere Schwester Gisela mit von der Partie. Im 'Goldenen Löwen' stand den Rocking Stars die große Verstärkeranlage des Veranstalters zur Verfügung - ein erhebendes Gefühl für die Schülerband. Am 13. November 1959 brachte das 'Badische Tageblatt' einen großen Bericht über die Karnevals-Sause, in dem die Gruppe aber nur in einem Satz beiläufig erwähnt wurde.

Jürgen Lammer: "Wir haben ausschließlich im süddeutschen Raum gespielt, wir mußten am nächsten Tag ja wieder zur Schule. Viele Veranstaltungen liefen in den US-Basen, NCO- und IM-Clubs und so, in Karlsruhe, Ettlingen und wo auch immer sie waren. In den IM-Clubs haben wir immer von Mittwoch bis Freitag gespielt. Natürlich auch in anderen, zivilen Läden, in Offenburg, Heidelberg, am Bodensee usw. In Heidelberg '65, das war mit den Rattles. In Rastatt hatten wir den Beat-Club, die standen auf der Star-Club-Austauschliste, und 'Zum Löwen', auch ein Beatschuppen. In Mannheim gab's das Ringcafé und in Weingarten bei Karlsruhe die Kärcherhalle - da hatten später nach uns die Flippers ein Engagement und sind dann ganz groß rausgekommen."

Customer evaluation for "Rocking Stars (CD)"
5 Jan 2019

One great track worth buying this for

The usual superb Bear Family mastering and research by Hans-Jurgen. To be honest I bought this CD for only one track: Flames Of Love. A superb 'call and response' beat rocker which German bands seemed to better than anyone else. Reminds me of the German Bonds awesome 'We're Out Of Sight'. The rest of the CD is decent beat and R&B but kind of forgettable although the cover of Monday Monday was surprisingly good.
