EX-Bei Rain­er

all hell breaks loose bei Rain­er

The cen­ter of the Ha­gen sub­cul­ture in the 80s (next to the Ber­mudad­reieck [LINK]) is Wil­helms­platz in the heart of the Wehring­hausen dis­trict. The fa­vor­ite place of the scene is the pub Bei Rain­er, loc­ated dir­ectly on the square. Stefan Kleinkrieg of Ex­trab­reit re­counts: "On Sunday even­ings all the bands came back from their week­end gigs, they met in the pub Bei Rain­er and ex­changed ideas. What kind of gui­tar and in­stru­ments do they have, how do they play it, now we buy ourselves the same equip­ment... that's how a kind of Ha­gen sound came in­to be­ing." With the song "Bei Rain­er ist die Hölle los", which only ex­ists as an unironed demo ver­sion, Ex­trab­reit set a monu­ment to the pub. The house on the corner of Kottmannstraße and Bis­mar­ck­straße is cur­rently be­ing ren­ov­ated. A pub is not planned, res­id­en­tial units with an at­tract­ive stand­ard for in­vestors are to be built.
