Timeline 1999<<

(info taken from www.Scootertechno.De)

The year starts with´no time to chill´tour-it becomes Scooters online debut:Scooter is one of the very first bands to document their complete tour in an online tour diary.In April the band celebrate their fifth aniversary.No other German Techno Dance act has been as consistent and sucsessful as the trio from Hamburg.´Faster,Harder,Scooter´-title of the first single to be taken from the new album ´Back to heviweight Jam´makes no promises that album cannot keep.Scooter is crashing things up:rock guitar riffs,increased tempo-the band is lauder and better then ever.´Faster,Harder,Scooter´quickly enters the German sales charts top 10.,no least also thanks to airplay of the excellent video.The video filmed in Cape Town shows the band driving in a daredevil buggy race trough the South Afrikan desert.Axel’s unintended stunt is certainly worth a mention. He lost control of his buggy and turned it over several times. Nothing happened to him thankfully. The director was of course pleased about the incident because the camera was still rolling and the spectacular stunt was immortalsed on celluloid for the rest of the world.
The year was coming to an end and so was the millennium. The world went millennium crazy. Millennium champagne, millennium mugs – H.P., Rick and Axel showed that they had clearly enough of the hysteria among the millennium slaves. Their altitude towards the euphoria was certainly clear: “Fuck The Millenium” – a distinct message and as ever a definite indication that the band was going against the tide.
The memorable single cover originates from a live appearance during a special Majorca edition of “VIVA Clubrotation” TV show. H.P. exposed his backside in front of the running cameras and once again made it clear what he thought about the millennium frenzy.
“Back To The Heavyweight Jam“ turned gold in numerous countries and even won the band’s first album award in Germany.

In the Ukraine, Scooter are the first western band to play concerts in Dnepropetrovsk and Kharkiv. In Kiev a total of 25.000 people come to the Olympic Stadium to see Scooter.
