Well – Solingen is not really the mekka of contemporary pop music. However to underestimate this city which is hidden between Duesseldorf and Cologne would be a mistake. A reason for that is definitely Palace Fever. The story behind that band can be described as something like: Actually I didn’t want to form a new band, but suddenly I had one. This is pretty much how Julian Müller (The Blackberries) experienced the whole thing.
During the last years lots of songs have been written by him and he just wanted to record some of them as a solo project. But it became clear very soon that there was much more potential – the songs were (still are) great and obviously needed a full band to be performed live. Thanks to guitarist & co-vocalist Mutz (Purple Sex Heads), bass player Jonas Wirtz (The Blackberries) and drummer Jens Vetter (ex-Sewer Rats) the solo project very soon became a serious band project! And here we go!
Palace Fever mostly perform songs created by the mind of Julian Müller – quirky-catchy tunes that balance between folk, beat and country. Served with lots of twang, cliché-less rock’n’roll and pure pop!
