It's over.


Suscribe to this mailing list if you wanna get fresh news about CURLEE WURLEE!s split, new videos, etc.

How nice: Surfing Berliners of The Kilaueas just named their new album after a song of ours called TOUCH MY ALIEN, which Ralf Kilauea contributed to at its time. The album is featuring a really fun version of this song too. This is a huge honour to have a song title become an album title. Waooo. Thank you! Oh, and you can find our "Touch my alien" on our 4th album "Birds & Bees".


And now an indescribable sickness appeared right after our last tour, forcing us to momentarily stop all our activities. We are shell-shocked. 2017 is the worst year in our life.

We are shocked and deeply sad about the loss of our friend and previous drummer ARMIN. There are no words to describe our pain.

Feel free to write over here. Katja, his family and friends need your spiritual support.

Thank you.

Our new EP "C'est Destructif" now out on Chaputa!Records has arrived, yippie! DANCEFLOOR-KILLER they said. Recorded at SWAMPLAND in France by Lo Araignee in person. Wonderful artworks by the one and only Rui Ricardo Illustrator!


BUY: available in your favourite records shop.

And another one:

And here we go with a new video-clip:

We wish you a Happy New Year, all the best and peace in the world! What's new in this year? Check out the gig secion. Plus another single soon. Fantastic artworks by superstar graphic genius. And a dancefloor killer on top. Surprise surprise...

July: We're playing at the TSUNAMI CLUB in Cologne on July 19th, together with our friends of BEATREVOLVER. Triple birthday bash with cools DJs, cool folks, sexy bands and sexy drinks! Event invitation: We will start first and early because our bass player gotta catch a plane afterwards.

We won't release these songs since they sound like crap. May be some day on YouTube or so...

We just recorded 5 new hits in Hamburg... keep tuned!

January: Happy new year. First gigs in 2013 were fun!

Since band pages are hardly getting viewed unless you pay for it, we now have a private FaceBook page: Welcome!


We've got a new guitar player who's none less than Sir Kilauea of The Kilaueas!!! Since Axel's not in the gang anymore, everybody has to sing now, hey hey...

Goodbye Axel Darling.

VENUES: Unfortunately and after an awful story which made us loose a lot of money we don't even have, miss our album promotion and somehow one year, we are now booking our shows ourselves again, as in the past... so VENUES can contact us under b o o k i n g (AT) c u r l e e w u r l e e (DOT) com

by Kerstin Holzwarth

Rectification: It is CHÉRIBIBI (Daniel) who wrote the lyrics of "Sailor Girl". We're extremely sorry about the confusion with another situationnist hero of us. Chéribibi is the author of Un Dispensable Manifeste Du Skinhead Situationniste (clever and extremely entertaining), he's running the fantastic fanzine CHÉRIBIBI as well as a very good blog (in French)!

Yeaaah, the album has arrived and looks fabulous! (For those you don't own a record player, also available on download platforms soon. More details will follow...)

New album out on 8th July 2011 (Moody Monkey Records)!!!

Four trashy tunes recorded in a one-afternoon-session at the Larsen Studio in April 2004 during our French tour by Djan and mixed by Teen Axel of the Slow Slushy Boys. There are the last recordings with our previous line-up and you might understand why we've got a new one, ha ha! You can already listen to one track in our mp3 section before you buy it or not. But be quick: limited at 500 pieces only!!!

Oct 22nd, 2005 Music back in stock in the mp3 section!

CW!WebRadio New on October 7th: Graf Zeppelin, Sohail Rhana, The Link Quartet, The Dovers, Lederhosen Lucil, The Bittersweets, Black Lips.

2nd studio session is planned on November 12th and 13th at the Burning Ears Studio's again with another 8-10 brand new songs.

Studio feedback: We've live-recorded 9 songs (8 originals: Can't make you mine, 20", Il Tu Je, Smith&Wesson, You're a fake, La Languedocienne, Make you cry, Black Guards - and 1 cover: Justine) on Saturday at the Burning Ears Studio and did the rest on Sunday. It seems that everybody digs it! Second part will follow in November, then the mix and perhaps the new LP some day...

Unbelievable but true: despite the pure chaos currently haunting the region of Düsseldorf, Solingen and Cologne, CW! is more living than ever and studio is booked for the first weekend of September (and we've made plenty of ultra moody new songs!...) So may be you'll finally get the new LP in your hands some day... Specialists pretend "It will be no comparison to the first LP or singles we know from them: with a complete new line-up since one year and completely different, absolutely asskicking songs to drive your girlfriend cry and more girls fall into your arms. Handkerchief guaranteed for some, more energy than one can stand for others! All these tunes (hits) probably won't get out of your head!!!" Thanks to the specialists...

CW!WebRadio New on August 28th: Downliners Sect, The Remains, We The People as well as some real fantastic obscure and moody surprises you'll probably find nowhere else, thanks Geri's (The Bluebirds, The Idols, Nelli Manou, The Vikings, The Girls and The Juniors) and Beatmike's (The Tigermen, The Lazy Eggs, The Underdogs, Black Watch, Mick & The Shambles, Kings Ransom, Yesterday's Children and Pleasure Seekers) record collections!!!

March 28th: Curlee Wurlee! played in Hamburg on Friday. It seems that they were still terrorising the town on Sunday, since a member has been recognised in the very early morning, fully naked in a service station, ordering boozed refreshment. Various residents reported having found unknown socks in their house as they woke up and a completely burst mattress was discovered in the street. Someone was seen with a cardboard box on his head and a complete district was raving under northwest beats. Local police officers are still investigating...
