...back in the summer of 98... somehow it all started like this.
rene & michael, who've known each other over the years inside
their local scene took their acoustic guitars to a park to jam.
they came upo with the idea of starting a band with 2 guitarists
only in order to play acoustic shows in bars and cafes.
but this idea didn't last that long for they felt the urgent need
after a few line-up changes they found a fitting rhythm-section
with thorsten and benedikt. by playing a lot of shows and by releasing
a 5-song demo-cd, TMP quickly were in everybodies mouths for being
a rocking act. this resulted in offers to play all over germany.
the newly designed webpage was a huge succes also. being online
since june 1st 2000 www.threeminutepoetry.de counted over 4000
using contacts and the help of befriended bands TMP played shows
with jimmy eat world, at the drive-in, donots, uncle ho, hey day
and almost every local band around! during the sold out show with
jimmy eat world in bochum, cologne's hottest indie-label DEFIANCE
RECORDS signed TMP to record a full-lenght album.
first of all the release of "slowly learning that love is okay"
is within reach. it will hit the stores at the end of may! apart
from that TMP wants to rock as much as possible.
