the guys in Australia

many people ask about a tour in Australia or where to see the guys .. Unfortunately all I know that they are doing some promotion for TV, radios and some other stuff but no tour this time. The guys are posting on Facebook about their trip and now They seem to be in Melbourne. Next week They will head to Sydney where is the private show for the winners of the Facebook competition. After Australia, the guys will go to New Zealand for a few days. They'll be back in Europe in the end of November. This is all what I am assuming and reading from other pages...

All official information you get on www.Facebook.com/theBaseballs and www.twitter.com/theBaseballs

Esteban, Barcelona
Your music and your clothes reminds the 50. Where come a taste for the fashions of the time? Have your parents influenced you?

We were a children of about six years, when we heard these songs, watched movies, and simply we are interested in the lifestyle of that era, especially the music.

It's a good idea.

Franz

Marcos Langreo España
you´re a fierce and it´s true that you resemble Elvis Presley or even better, but my question is: you´ll out draw their own songs or you´ll follow singing songs of others. by the way I like to you sing and include on the next album "Sweet victory" of the group Van Halen is an old-song and very happy and roker like you.
The Baseballs
At the moment we don´t make versions of very old songs, and Van Halen is 90.

Alberto
We write on thebaseballs fan site on facebook with so many fans around the world, everyone wants to see you live! When do you think, you could have a promotional tour for more places in Spain?
The Baseballs
Sure, next year ...

Virginia, Zaragoza
You have a voices that I love, Would you dare to sing with another musical style, apart from the rock?
The Baseballs
Not at the moment our idea is to stick with style songs of the 50, and that is our illusion.

Enrique, Murcia
Would you dare to sing a song in Spanish?
The Baseballs
is possible we can sing when we take some Spanish classes, we´ll sing you a particular song.

Hard Not To Cry -lyrics


My heart is bleeding
But I just can't tell you why
My mother told me that I'm not allowed to cry

So I'm acting like I'm cool
Even though I am a fool
For the reasons that I let you go
For the sweetest thing I used to know

And I try to forget you
But I fail so many times
And I try to ignore you
Yeah I try
And I try to forget you
But I fail so many times
Sometimes it's hard for boys not to cry

I like to tell you
What I really feel inside
How much I wished to
Have you with me every night

But as long as I'm a man
who looks brave to all his friends
I continue what I have to do
It's a lie that I'm not lovin' you

And I try to forget you
But I fail so many times
And I try to ignore you
Yeah I try
And I try to forget you
But I fail so many times
Sometimes it's hard for boys not to cry

Sometimes it's hard for boys not to cry

(the song is written by Digger)

translated article

cool article from http://www.general-anzeiger-bonn.de/index.php?k=loka&itemid=10003&detailid=774741 and it was tranlated by Emmi(thanks again):
---


General-Anzeiger (magazine): Boys, you’re casted, aren’t you?
B: Maybe it sounds funny but: we really met by chance. In the kitchen of a rehearsal complex in Berlin where we all were practising with our bands or were there for audition. We all three had this quiff and thought: that’s a beginning. Maybe we have even more things in common.


G-A: How does one feel suddenly meeting another guy with a quiff?
D: Brother!


G-A: Are there many of those?
S: It depends on the cities. Hannover for example has a quite engrained Indie-Rockabilly-Scene. Which we are not because we are very mainstream and make music that should touch everybody. And we do more than Rockabilly. We also sing ballads and doing the classic Elvis style, Buddy Holly or Jerry Lee Lewis.


G-A: So straight rockabillys wouldn’t cover “Umbrella” from Rihanna, “Bleeding Love “ from Leona Lewis or “So what” from Pink.
D: Not really. But some of the rockabillys are happy about the fact that there is any kind of their music coming up again and is put back in the mind of the people. In the beginning we tried with stuff like “Jailhouse Rock” but we’re reaching young and old people with what we’re doing now. That’s the best case.


G-A: You got the ECHO-Award as “Best Newcomers”. Rihanna was also there. Does she know your version of “Umbrella”?
B: We had loved to sing our song for her but no one could get in reach of her. She had more bodyguards than we are members of the band. The ones being really friendly to us were Udo Lindenberg and Sasha (german singers)


G-A: Sasha also sang Rockabilly himself as Dick Brave. Is this guy an idol for you?
S: It’s an honour being compared to him. But performing our songs in three voices means being something very special ourselves.


G-A: You are mid-twenties. How did you fall in love with the fifties-music?
B: It all started with Elvis. Digger got a cassette with Elvis-songs to Christmas from his parents, I was eight when I saw his picture on a record and instantly wanted to have these sideburns. My parents had to explain to me why that wouldn’t work.


G-A: How do you know that a song is the right one for you?
D: It’s important that there is a lot of lyrics. And it should have more than two or three chords. Then you try and see if the songs is catching you.


G-A: In Scandinavia you are even more successful than in Germany, especially in Finland. You album “Strike” stayed on #1 more than 12 weeks. How can you explain that?
B: Why the Finnish people get crazy about us? We just can guess. The rock music the Finnish listen to in general is very dark. In opposite to that we come along with our happy rock music. We fit in a niche over there. And since the days of Leningrad Cowboys the Finnish are experts about quiffs.


G-A: Do you want to conquer even more countries?
S: Of course, nothing against it. After Scandinavia and Switzerland where we got our first Golden Record now it’s starting in Holland. And then we’ll try Spain, France, Italy.


G-A: How do you manage with all the hype?
B: We haven’t reached that much yet. We had a good start and are extremely happy about the ECHO. It’s great to be also successful at home. But we don’t overvalue what is happening right now. And we still don’t need bodyguards. We always have nice contact with our fans .


G-A: You have worked in your office-jobs until a short time ago. How do you manage it now?
D: There are no jobs no more, it didn’t work. We haven’t been at home for a long time and there is a thick layer of dust everywhere in our flats. But we are not really sad about it. It was our aim to put full concentration to our band.


G-A: Do you get on your nerves sometimes?
B: When we are touring there are the musicians and the crew in the bus, probably 11 to 12 people. If you get wrong with one of them you’ll just talk to someone else. Of course there are conflicts but you will always drink a lemonade together the next day.


G-A: Lemonade?
B: We don’t really fit in this cliché of sex&drugs&rock’n’roll. We have some beers after the show, that’s all.


G-A: You’re only male in that bus?
S: Yes. We’re a men’s club.


G-A: Do you get more girls than others because you’re a cool rockstar?
B: A gentleman keeps silent.


G-A: Why?
D: The golden rule is: no women in the tourbus. Somehow it’s our home, all our stuff is lying around. No, girls are not accepted. Well, maybe somebodies mom, she may have a short glance. But anyway, I’ve never noticed that one of us has picked up a girl. It’s just talking a bit, you know.


G-A: Do you own clothes or cars from the fifties?
B: I take the tube. And we don’t wear this stuff everyday. But the first time when someone recognized me on the street I was running around really normal.


G-A: Means?
B: Hair down.


G-A: How do you fix your quiff?
B: Different. Digger’s building his quiff using only his hair-dryer and hair-spray. Sam needs lots of pomade. And I put some hair mousse on the wet hair to get some structure, then I dry it in the right way, then pomade and spray.


G-A: How long does it take changing?
B: That’s fast. Half an hour and we’re ready to go on stage.
