People say (Trivia about Trivia About):

“Honeyheads make a beautiful pop noise that should be heard by everyone. To know them is to love them.”
– Phil Wilson (The June Brides)

“Toll poppsige Platte – vermutlich das Poppsigste von allem, was in den ersten 10 Jahren des beginnenden Jahrtausends versäumt wurde, herausgebracht zu werden. Hervorgehoben seien die Gesangsstimmen der jungen Menschen. Insbesondere die eine männliche treibt einem in diesen gleichgeschalteten Tagen angesichts ihrer Differenz, Andersheit, Ernsthaftig-, aber auch Ulkigkeit wirklich die Freudentränen in die Augen. Die fernen Echos und Erinnerungen an die glorreichen Zeiten von “Orange Juice”, die hier nach gutem kannibalistischen Brauch einverleibt und respektvoll wieder ausgespieen wurden, tun ihr Übriges. Mein Lieblingslied ist ‘Rod’.”
– Ebba Durstewitz (JaKönigJa)

“What a great album.  These jams could only come from as advanced a man as Hot Rod [Henning] himself. One badass jam after another.  The Honeyheads don’t give you a breather.  No mercy.”
– Sean Rawls (Still Flyin’, Masters Of The Hemisphere)

“One perfect early-summer late-afternoon, I find myself shamblefooting home, full of wine; my joyful swagger mimicked by the coastal grass. As the sun disappears behind the embankment, the easterly breeze whips up across the bay and I hear the familiar rustle of gum leaves. I round the bend and feel the sun’s glow again as the tail-wind picks up momentum and carries me up the final hill of my journey — it’s become the perfect early-evening. Then the Honeyheads album ends and I realise I’ve been home the whole time, making soup. And it’s time for a glass of wine!”
– Mark Monnone (The Lucksmiths, Lost And Lonesome Recordings)

“The Honeyheads must be, and I’m sure that I’m making no mistake, the only indiepop band in Germany that captures the spirit of those emblematic late 80s and early 90s. This little genre that we all love also lived it’s heyday during those years in Germany, running parallel to what was happening in the UK. Bands like Die Fünf Freunde, Most Wanted Men or even Throw that Beat in the Garbagecan! defined a scene back then. It’s no wonder that a label that was born during those years, releasing classic releases by the likes of The Legendary Bang or Red Letter Day, put an eye on them and decided to stop hibernation and put their record out. That label is Marsh-Marigold, a staple in indiepop, in Germany and the whole world.

I wonder if they still wear the white and yellow costumes during their gigs. That was a great touch. The superb energy they display, exchanging vocals between the band members, charmed everyone that only time I saw them live, at the Astrastube in Hamburg. Their songs include strong hits like Out of Marseille or the great Akira, and what about their bouncy cover of the Blue Hearts, Linda Linda. Their first single, that I was lucky to release, sold out so fast, even faster than that one of the Pains. So who knows, maybe it’s time for them to stop being a well-kept secret in indiepop circles and the German crowd, I believe it’s time for more people to find out about them!”
– Roque Ruiz (Cloudberry Records, Plastilina Records)

Presseschau / Trivia About:

  • Szene Hamburg, Februar 2011, Seite 74; Text: Gregor Kessler, Foto: Claudia Höhne.
  • Trivia About Honeyheads ***1/2 – Rezension von Wolfgang Doebeling, ROLLING STONE, April 2011:
“Noch eine in Hamburg angesiedelte Band, freilich aus ganz anderer, eher beschaulich-besinnlicher Pop-Tradition. Die Honeyheads, you see, beziehen ihren bittersüßen Honig aus dem Nektar von Blüten, die in den Gärten englischer Suburbia gedeihen und auf dem Torf schottischer Blumenwiesen. “It’s A Frame About Rod” singt es jungenhaft und adäquat schräg, wortspielerisch Aztec Camera beschwörend, indes die von Martina Lenzin intonierten Songs nicht unbedingt weniger nieseln, aber sonniger scheinen. Was Regenbögen zeitigt, farbenfroh und freundlich-melancholisch. Keine Härte, kein Hauruck, nirgendwo, sondern 14 linkisch vorgetragene Antithesen zu Rock-Posituren, nicht immer stichhaltig, stets jedoch charmant.”
