in early spring of 1999 singer/songwriter zé mari puts an ad in the paper looking for other musicians to start a new kind of soul band.
philipp, hartmut, thomas, arno and zé come together succesfully and name their band after the 1993 German motion picture “durst” (‘thirst’).
“the enormous intensity of this motion picture is the goal for what we want to create” says zé mari.
in may of `99 thirst. plays live for the first time in their home base of cologne.
one year later they release their first cd “elmowa ep”.
as a consequence of their regular live appearances in germany, the band enjoys an ever growing fan base.
they perform nationwide in front of thousands of people in venues such as stadtgarten/cologne, cch/hamburg, b-flat/berlin, thalia/schwerin as well as at open-air festivals such as ringfest/cologne, taubertal festival/rotenburg, and make numerous radio and television appearances (nbc, fab, bayerisches fernsehen).
in 2004 thirst. release their debut album “thirst.” in germany, austria and switzerland, published by the independent label elmowa records and distributed by al!ve.
following the success of their first album, thirst. release their second album “aphro” in the fall of 2006.
