The Dukes of Hamburg

The Dukes of Hamburg
Garage, Beat
In the early 90’s Thilo Pieper went to SF and formed The Dukes of Hamburg with musicians from the Mummies, the Astronauts, The Phantom Surfers and on Bass Shannon Smith (son of Repo Man Kirkwood Smith). The American Dukes toured up and down the West-Coast along with one European tour, then Thilo moved back to Germany and put together a version of The Dukes in Bielefeld while the American Dukes are still doing an occasional show.  Both Dukes are very Inspired by the Lords and many of the oldtimer German Beat groups and put the Fun back in Frantic!
