The German Punks presents singer Tex Brasket, a former homeless Berlin street musician, in the video for their new single. A new album is on its way too.
After singer Dirk “Diggen” Jora left the band in mid-2020, the Hamburg-based punk band has announced it has a new singer. Tex Brasket is the man now holding the microphone for Slime. The new frontman, a former homeless street musician from Berlin, can be heard (and seen) in a newly released video for the single ‘Komm schon klar’.
In addition to the new single, the band has announced a new album called “Two”, which is planned for release in May.
The band writes on their website: “After Slime and their old singer surprisingly split up last year, the end of the band seemed sealed … if it hadn’t been for the then homeless Berlin street singer Tex Brasket. Surprisingly, Slime and Tex got to know each other, and immediately started writing songs.”
“The lyrics for Komm schon klar’ comes from Tex’s pen,” the band says, “and describe his life on the street. It couldn’t be more authentic … Goosebumps guaranteed!”
Slime was founded in Hamburg in 1979 and became one of the style-defining bands of the 1980s in their genre. With their anti-fascist lyrics they influenced the history of the Deutchpunk movement.
In autumn 2017 the band’s current studio album ‘Hier und Jetzt’ was released.
