THE LAUGHING MAN are a Wuppertal (Germany) based band who are always in search of the perfect pop song. What they find and play on their way may not always be perfect, but its a collection of beautiful, strange songs with sometimes deconstructed lyrics.
The band first met in 2003, made three mostly home-recorded albums, yet and is very much influenced by British, Australian and New Zealand indie music of the 1980s and 90s.
On stage you can see the influence of Bertolt Brecht and Indira Gandhi on the band.
THE LAUGHING MAN were named after Jerome D. Salinger’s Short Story of the same name.
This is our current line-up:
Stefan „Alfred“ Neumann – Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards
