dbo:abstract
  • The Magoo Brothers were an Anglo-German Berlin-based punk-jazz band who toured extensively in Germany and throughout Europe during the late 1980s, playing over 400 concerts. The band was based on the west side of the wall in Berlin, where there was an active alternative music scene through the decade.The Magoo Brothers first official release was the song "At School", on the West Berlin "Sucht" compilation album. In 1988 they released the album "Beyond Believable" on the Bouncing Corporation label. On the songs "Queensbury Station" and "Kenton Kev", songwriters Paul Bonin, Melanie Hickford and Philip Ulysses Sanders immortalized both their local west London train station and the interesting people of its surrounding area. The latter song refers to the “pleasant valley” high suburban boredom factor then prevalent in the area, and cites local characters and places, some fairly well known. It is said that “Kenton Kev” refers in fact to Kevin Jones, the US-based property magnate, who was actually born in Kenton.Paul Bonin was formerly a member of The Jetset and is now contracted to Universal as a songwriter in Berlin, Germany. He has written many songs for well-known German artists and is about to launch his new band "The Chosen Few".Lorenz Maroldt went on to become Editor-in-Chief of the German Tagesspiegel national newspaper.David Hull has released a series of solo recordings and was the founder of the "focus pocus" live music club in Berlin.
