Surprise!

We couldn't hold our feet still this year and spontaneously decided to record a little EP on our own. It contains 5 cover versions of songs we rearranged in our own way.
The record will be available from now on, on 10"-Vinyl, download or stream. You can go here to order it: GHvC-shop

To give you an impression of what we've been doing on this record, we filmed this little video for the first song of the EP.
Have fun!

Moin!

We'll be heading back to where we belong to: the street. Well, the stage, to be precise.
We are very happy to start this year with a little journey around Germany with a surprise in our bags. Yes, I know, everyone says that, but we really do.
Come visit us here!

Love from us and the zebrawolfsheep.

We've had such a good time last year visiting all these exciting and beautiful countries. We are currently working on new songs and ideas to keep on keeping on in 2016.

We can't wait to come back to all of you.

Love,
yours TATADs.

New Live Video

Here's a new live video filmed at our show at Gruenspan in Hamburg one month ago.
A beautiful piece of work by Jacob Hohf (cut), Christoph Niemeier (mix) and Christoph Klipp, Liv Thamsen & Sebastian Jung (cameras).

We are very proud to present this to you:



...and here the same song in an acoustic version for the ROLLING STONE SESSIONS.
Thanks a lot to Andreas Hornoff, who filmed and cut the whole thing so beautifully:

Band

  • In our homeland the cows are black and white.
    You'll quickly know if you're staying or if you're coming back.
  • Together with our friend Jochen Hansen
    Sönke Torpus recorded the album "Five Leaves Left". (2009)
  • A first live band was formed with Melf Petersen
  • and Ove Thomsen.
  • In various constellations of friends joining the group,
    (Dancing Kids & Summers Laughter, 2010)
  • we were all over the place, travelling in our
    Volkswagen Tourbus across the land
  • in order to play.
  • With Felix Roll on the drums,
    with whom we've been making music since school days,
  • and Jenny Apelmo from Gothenburg on bass
  • we finally feel comfortable as the Art Directors. (2011)
  • When the wolf came jumping out of the bushes,
    we went to have some coffee with him
  • and then walked hand in hand.
  • And he who stops searching, never finds his way back home.
