Cook & Stans-Label


Biography:

 

Cook & Stans produce in many different styles as they seek the challenge and they like music in general.


The name: „Cook & Stans“ is derived from the 1990 computer-game „Monkey Island“.

In this game Stan is a boat-dealer who‘s very passionate in selling his used boats and he talks and talks without a chance to stop him. That reminded us on how „Stans“ from „Cook & Stans“ always tried to talk „Cook“ into buying new expensive equipment and software.
Later we named „Cook“ Cook, because he‘s a bit harsh and critical on their tunes. And in every episode of Monkey Island you meet a very angry cook.


„Cook & Stans“ first met at the basketball-place when they were about 18 years old.
The two soon developed a strong friendship lasting until today.
Both studied at university for quite some time. Cook studied psychology and Stans computer science with some other subjects.
This leads to the habit of a very scientific approach to music:
They‘re reading books, searching the internet, analysing music, watching tutorials and discussing new problems and ideas on the phone (musical, but also real-life problems ;-) ).
Both are very crazy and obsessive with music, going to music fairs and festivals.
When with their girlfriends, you can often find them with headphones in front of their PCs.
Outside the house, while on the way, they‘re listening to their tunes thinking about what could be improved.


We‘re hoping you like our tunes :-)
