Die Kreuzen

OKAY MOTHERFUCKERS - DIE KREUZEN PLAYING MAY 26 TURNER HALL. BE THERE.
The above quote comes from Keith Brammer's Facebook. He's the bassist of the legendary Die Kreuzen who apparently will reunite for a one-off show in their native Milwaukee, WI. According to reports, the band will feature 3/4 of the original lineup, with Jay Tiller stepping in for Brian Egeness. No word as to what era the band will focus on or if this show will lead to more, but fingers are crossed. For the unfamiliar...
Die Kreuzen (pronounced Dee-Kroytzen) was a rock band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin which was formed in 1981.... They began as a hardcore punk group and rapidly became a source of inspiration for a wide range of alternative rock musicians, including Soundgarden, Sonic Youth, Voivod, Drive Like Jehu, Alice In Chains, and Neurosis. -[Wiki]
The band called it quits in 1992 and the show will mark their first reunion in some time, though there was a close call in 2009. Check out some live video of Die Kreuzen below.

Great job!!!

Posting hardcore-era Die Kreuzen videos when they'll almost certainly be playing only their hard-rock stuff (2nd LP and afterwards) is kinda hopeful, but stupid.

Posted by Dave | February 27, 2012 5:31 PM

Hey Dave-
I think its a fair assumption that no one has any idea what they are playing. Do you?

That said, I just posted some videos that I liked, thats really the end of it.

Thanks for reading.

Damn, Dave! You just got BBG'd!

Dan Kubinski's post says they'll be playing songs from all 4 LP's. I loved all of it so I don't care which one the hew more towards, this is going to be GREAT!

Of course, milwaukee has had its share of visitors over the years.

their last tour (cement) they did 15-20 minutes of the 1st lp and 2/3 of that was on request by the audience and nailed it.

however, without brian this is pretty lame.

Holy fuck. I will have to road trip for this one.

Why isnt Brian involved?

Posted by cmc | February 27, 2012 9:13 PM

Brian can't make the time-frame given apparently.

So it's 3/4 of a band that no one cared about 30 years ago? Stop the presses!

woah i just friended keith brammer, and he's an alex lifeson fan! hahaha.

to say no-one cared about this band 30 years ago is so laughable I shouldn't respond, but I am. do your research. Die Kreuzen are one of the best band's to come out of the USA.
but don't take my word for it, just poke around the web and check out all the musicians who are freaking out about this

Jay Tiller (Couch Flambeau & famed HOT WHEELS* collector) will be playing guitar—YEA!

Posted by Anonymous | February 28, 2012 10:40 PM

No Brian Egeness, no Die Kreuzen even if the fill-in is playing with Brian's blessing and using Brian's guitar (or so I read somewhere LOL.)


Posted by D | February 29, 2012 2:13 AM

Die Kreuzen are one of the best bands ever. This is an undeniable fact. but if you don't know them by now, you will never ever know them.

Posted by Bones Howell | March 1, 2012 2:47 AM

Bones Howell you are 100% spot on. they should have been part of "Our Band Could Be Your Life", they were that influential, AND that incredible.

i'm with 12:01

Posted by Souq | March 4, 2012 10:21 AM

they were one of the greatest bands I have ever seen and I saw Bad Brains, Replacements, Huskers and countless others back in the day. Unbelievable band. I grew up in Wisconsin and they blew me away everytime.
