Between just now and Niun Niggung, Jan Werner (bicycle) and Andi Toma (jeep) were frequently, often and extensively on the road in their atom- powered flying absorber. They toured all over Europe as a band with drummer Dodo, and as a duo they visited the US and Japan with Stereolab, Oval and Microstoria. In between the two sound grafters from Cologne and Düsseldorf carved their imperialist super label Sonig from chewed-up vinyl treasures by Lithops, Wang inc., Vert, and F.X.Randomiz. In the breaks between their self-exploitation there's always amazing scrubbing for the world-famous A- Musik sphere, bucketloads of remixes and other merry yarns for which many would gamble away their left arm.
One thing is for certain: Mouse On Mars have paved the way for a continuously growing gang of German and international sound villains to weave analogue and digital, electronic and non-electronic sounds in a totally new, organic fabric. Not without reason have great swarms of independent and other tinkerers, post-, kraut- and general rockers, poppers, techno types and avant-garde scoundrels included this darn modern stuff in their daily menu.
