Finally managed to find the old file and uploaded the Unique illustration to my shop. Because you asked for it, you can now get some of that old club sphere into your home. All of the proceeds I will donate to a cause that was dear to Henry Storch. Please spread the word.

Dies ist der berühmte Unique Club in Düsseldorf, vielleicht der beste Club der Welt. Der Club und das Unique Label waren das Lebenswerk von Henry Storch, der leider viel zu jung gestorben ist. Dies ist eine Illustration, die ich vor einiger Zeit für eine Platte des Unique Labels gezeichnet habe, ...

Am Wochenende haben wir für die Shows nächsten Freitag Freedom Sounds Christmas Ball Alpheus Braces Downbeat Detonators im Gebäude 9 (Köln) und Samstag fürs Krefeld SKA Summit - The Braces meet The Nicks geprobt. Es war sehr cool. Daniel ist extra aus Bayern vorbei gekommen. Super, dass der unglaubliche Pascal Schäfer von The Clerks uns am Saxofon verstärkt. Ich hoffe, wir sehen uns.

Also on our setlist for the show, next friday, December 22nd, 2017. Happiness, from the album "Blue Flame."

Back in the day. Let's not forget that the late Prince Buster joined The Trojans on stage. One of my best-loved memorabilia is an autograph by the King of Kings that I got that night.

Der Titel zu "Too True To Be Good" ist übrigens eine zarte Allusio an ein Theaterstück von George Bernard Shaw. Die Musik ist weit weniger akademisch, eher hemdsärmelig.

This is the official video for "Too True To be Good", a song from the second album "Blue Flame" by German Ska band The Braces. It was produced in Duesseldorf...

Fun fact: In 2005, The Braces worked on an album of cover versions. Never got around to finishing it, though. This is from one of the rehearsals. A moody, laid-back version of the Tom Petty classic "I Won't Back Down". Quite different from the one David Hillyard, Saxophonist, Official Page did some years later. https://soundcloud.com/joe-scholes/i-wont-back-down

Joe Scholes a.k.a. Joachim Uerschels is a musician and writer who lives in Cologne/Germany. When he was 14 years old and still dwelling in his hometown Krefeld, he fell in love with pop music, especia
