Biography

In the mid-eighties regionally well-known folk-rock group Aigues Vives disbanded after many live gigs, one LP and a Compact Cassette of demos for an intended follow-up. Three of its members, Karl Beck (vocals, bass, guitar), Roland Enders (vocals, guitars, keyboards, bass) and Richard Bellinghausen (vocals, drums, percussion) subsequently started studio project Casino Babel to record a cassette tape's worth of newly-created songs. In the initial run that debut was followed by another five albums. Collaborating with a number of guest musicians Casino Babel checked out the creative alleys of folk, pop and rock. Malte Burchard (technology) and Karin Thiermann (vocals) were temporary members completing the lineup of Beck, Enders and Bellinghausen.

Using modern computer technology it is fairly easy nowadays to single-handedly produce well-sounding songs. During the years '85 to '97 when Casino Babel was active as a studio unit this was quite a challenge though. Technological means such as 8-track recorder, Atari computer, spring reverb, 8-bit-drumbox and some cheap microphones were very limited. Considering the circumstances at that time quite an appealing sound was nevertheless achieved. Original producer Roland Enders created restored and remastered versions in 2010.

That same year the band decided to record a new album after a 13-year-hiatus. Since then founder members Beck, Enders and Bellinghausen have been joined by two additional songwriters, Peter Müller and Achim Susbauer.
