Scheisse Minnelli is a skate-core band from Frankfurt in Germany, a mix of 2 Germans and 2 Americans established in 2003. Sam (Scheisse Minnelli) felt there were uncanny similarities between GFP and SM which left no choice but to do this split together. And so they did, this is it. "BEST AT ITS WORST" it's called, the title alone speaks for itself. Scheisse Minnelli's songs are quite experimental, if you know any of their material, you will notice the difference. EMB was written by Mikey P. and complete by the time he walked into the rehearsal room. The songs' lyrics are about the skate spot in S.F. where Sam and Mikey frequently skated when they were kids. It's impressive how all SM songs and themes represent true stories of their lives, nothing's fake, what you hear is what you'll get. Amazing enough they write music as they go, during soundcheck, at the show…spontaneity is a must when it comes to writing songs, and Scheisse Minnelli nails it every time. Here it comes "Best At Its Worst!!!
