… farewell „Old Erwin“!

Farwell Erwin „Old Erwin“ Lieske (17.09.1962 – 29.07.2019)

This time it is just silent appreciation for someone that was an all-time asset of the Hamburg Punk scene and at least for me was always up there, on stage.

Running order at the Knust (thanks for hosting).

Erwin was with us all night, at the side of the stage.

The song „Aggressivität und 220 Volt“ was the first ever song „Old Erwin“ did write for his first band Kotzbrocken, somewhere in 1978. Needles to say that they played it without rehearsing a single minute.

Thanks to all who made this possible, thanks to all who took care of Erwin personally and thanks to all those attending and celebrated Erwin.

Special thanks to those who had the deep and personal conversations about losses, death and how to deal with it with my humble self. Much appreciated!

Farewell Old Erwin!
