SHRUBBN!! Berlin | Bremen SHRUBBN!! was founded by Marco Haas aka T.Raumschmiere and Ulli Bomans aka Schieres in 1995. The aim of SHRUBBN!! was to do dirty-filthy-but-swinging-noize improvisations while tripping. They used to call it ROTZPOP!! the results were recorded on a stereo tape recorder and by 1997 the first demo was finished. 8 pieces were duplicated and given to special people. After a couple of track releases via Shitkatapult the duo started to focus on their solo projects T. Raumschmiere and Schieres. In 2004 their ways crossed again and they decided to bring back the maximum blast into the minimal world. It took them another 2 years to make this happen but in October 2006 HAAS & BOMANS had their first session after 7 years. In June 2007 SHRUBBN!! has officialy returned. Between 2007 and 2009 SHRUBBN!! released a couple of dancefloor orientated EPs on MUSICK TO PLAY IN THE CLUB (a Shitkatapult sub label), accompanied by various remixes for such named artists like DAVE GAHAN, APPARAT, WARREN SUICIDE, MARK BOOMBASTIK, AUX RAUS and FRANZ & SHAPE. With these tracks they were blowing off some roofs of international clubs before the two decided to go another direction (again). In 2009 the idea of Echos was born: No 4/4. No gnarz. No stress. Pure sound. Back to the roots. After 17 years of band history SHRUBBN!! finally released their debut album Echos on March 16th 2012 on Shitkatapult, followed by numerous (festival) shows with visual artist collective TRANSFORMA all over Europe including a tour support for APPARAT. Early 2016 Haas & Bomans went back to the studio to record new material. After seeing an old map of Europe on the studio wall the idea of the album title EUROPA was born. Soundwise they decided to keep it close to Echos but with a more melodic touch to it. The song titles on EUROPA correspond to small towns and villages all over Europe, that are totally unkown and plant the question, how they look like, how they smell and even how they sound.
