Guano Apes Biography

The German alt-rock quartet Guano Apes consists of vocalists
Sandra Nasic, guitarist Henning Ruemenapp, bassist Stefan Ude
and drummer Dennis Poschwatta. Ude, Ruemenapp and Poschwatta
had been playing together for awhile and added Nasic in time to
win first place in the 1996´Local Heroes´competition held by
VIVA, Germany´s music TV channel. The Guano Apes´fusion of
metal, pop and rap beat out over 1000 competitors, and their
debut single´Open Your Eyes´was a Top 10 hit in Germany that
year and stayed in the Top 100 for 30 weeks. Thanks to VIVA´s
heavy rotation of the video for´Open Your Eyes,´ Guano Apes
signed a deal with Gun Records, who released the group´s
full-length album Proud Like A God in 1997. The group´s second
single´Lord of the Boards,´which was commissioned for the
1998 European Snowboarding Championship, was an even bigger
hit and pushed the album to platinum status in Germany and
gold status in other European countries. RCA released Proud
Like a God in the US in 1999.
