A BlankTV Premiere Presentation:
Scheisse Minnelli - "Cafe Fix"
Scheisse Minnelli bio: After backpacking around Europe and the Middle East Mr. Samuel El Action decided to set roots in Germany the year 2003. The idea of playing the California punk he grew up with here in Europe enthralled him on a daily basis. He gathered two German and one Californian punks and hung out at the now legendary "Shit House" in a small bavarian village. They had no heat, no hot water and shared the house with a bunch of drunken construction workers from Eastern Europe. This house became later the place of the infamous Shit House Wrecking Party (the night when Scheisse Minnelli fled to Aschaffenburg to escape from the village-police). Scheisse Minnelli would soon do their first tour through Holland and Belgium which ended with an opening slot for Poison Idea at the now legendary Lintfabriek. Since then they have played about 500 gigs all over Europe, Mexico and the USA and completed a successful tour in Indonesia in 2014.
About The Video: After living in Germany and travelling Europe for several years, ex-Californians Sam & Mikey Minnelli stumbled upon the Bahnhofsviertel in Frankfurt / Main. It reminded both of the dark and dangerous Mission District in San Francisco during the late 80s and early 90s, before gentrification and all these google yuppies moved in and pushed out all the poor people and the dive bars. One day near Central Station there was a shooting in front of "Cafe Fix", a social project place where people go to shoot up heroin. Sam and Mikey witnessed all of it standing nearby just by pure random. Later this resulted into the song and video....
