The classic line-up:
Steve Tree (Vocals)
Martin Ficken (Guitar)
The Rocky-Horror freakshow car crash soap opera that was EINSTEIFEN was birthed on the night of Hallowe'en at the Harp Club. Centered around the unholy pairing of Nosferatu-esque frontman Steve Tree and Neanderthal drummer Ug, the ever changing lineup eventually devoured most of Folkestone's musical underworld, leaving once-proud musicians empty, drained and jaded.
Musically, EINSTEIFEN trod the dangerous ground between shambolic and genius, repetitive and hypnotic, their primal flailings seemingly at their best when teetering on the brink of collapse.
An ill-advised signing to the World's worst record label (Spiky Black Cat) lead to financial ruin, scandal, prostitution, coprophilia, mass genocide, and suicide (okay, it was a bad decision).
After at least one resurrection too many, the Beast eventually died cold, naked and alone sometime around 2005ish. Its shade can often be heard echoing dismally around the streets of Folkestone on moonless nights (or is that just the Chavs?).
