Feeling B

Feeling B was one of the first punk bands in the former German Democratic Republic (East Germany).

The band was founded in Berlin in 1983 and started out firmly grounded in the underground punk scene. Over time, Feeling B's popularity grew greatly and at the end of the German Democratic Republic, it was one of the most respected and influential Eastern German bands despite their underground status.

Feeling B concerts were improvised.

Frontman Aljoscha Rompe, a Swiss living in East Berlin, supplied the vocals to the band's restless, enduring punk anthems. His accompanying keyboardist and guitarist, then universally referred to as "Flake" and "Paulchen", have since found fame as keyboardist Christian "Flake" Lorenz and rhythm-guitarist Paul H. Landers of Rammstein. Rammstein's singer, Till Lindemann, also participated once with Feeling B for the song Lied von der unruhevollen Jugend, for which he is credited on the album Hea Hoa Hoa Hea Hea Hoa. Rammstein twice played this song live in St. Peterburg and Moscow in 2001, during the Mutter tour.

The group disbanded mid-1990's. On special occasions, the band members would get together for individual concerts at punk festivals, until Rompe died in November 2000.

There is a book available on Feeling B.

Eventually Flake rediscovered tapes of old and partial unreleased recordings. This unreleased material and remixes of some already known songs were released on a new album titled "Grün & blau" in 2007.
