Boots In-depth Biography

The Boots} were a German outfit formed on the model of such British Invasion} blues}-based outfits as the Yardbirds}, the Pretty Things}, and Them}. Lead singer Werner Krabbe} had most definitely heard at least a couple of Van Morrison} singles, while lead guitarist Jurg "Jockel" Schulte-Eckel} utilized fuzz-tone effects for all they were worth, and also may have had a passing awareness of the Who}; at least, he was known -- before Jimi Hendrix} ever started showing up with lighter fluid on stage -- for playing his instrument with screwdrivers and other metal tools as well as the occasional beer bottle. The rest -- Uli Grun} on rhythm guitar, organ, and harmonica; Bob Bresser} on bass; and Heinz Hoff} on drums -- variously pulsed, thumped, and pounded away behind these two lead punk} maniacs, making some very busy as well as very bluesy records in the bargain, which were also characterized by fairly nimble vocal work. Somewhere midway between the Yardbirds} and Them}, with hints of the pyrotechnics that the Who} and the Creation} would perfect each in their own way, the Boots} were popular in Germany and were also good enough to rate a recording contract with Germany's Telefunken Records}, which yielded a pair of LPs as well as several singles. Krabbe} exited in early 1966, following the release of their garage-punk} single "Gaby,"} though the band hung on for another year. The latter single was featured on Rhino}'s summer 2001 release of Nuggets II}. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide
