26.01.1998 Berlin, Junction Bar
Hartmut: "This was last gig of the Yellowhouse rocks again winter tour 1997/98 at Junction Bar "The Place For Live Music", and it was really cold outside. The band played two sets a 55 min. and some of the newer Yellowhouse "Hits" were done twice, as "Return To The Sky", "Now You´re Gone", "Kill Your Dreams" and "What´s Shining Through". As on most Monday nights, only a few people came, some came along from the previous gigs... and those who came, i. e. those who were "Ahead Of Their Time", enjoyed the show. Thanks to "Zitty" magazine for advertising this show with a big Yellowhouse promo-shot; thanks also go to Locke, who took all the Yellowhouse (Mark II) promo-pictures. And last, but of course not least, a big thank you on behalf of the band to those loyals, who are always there... we know who you are... we certainly do... for sure!"
24.01.1998 Berlin, Bierkeller Siegmundshof
"This one really was electric, with some members of the
audience going absolutely crazy. Some came along from the gig two
weeks ago at Trash and "Return To The Sky", "Between
The Wheels", "Sweet Empty Life" and "Ain´t
No Cure" went down particularly well. Maybe the beer was a
little too cheap at this student-club.
16.01.1998 Berlin, Non Tox
Hartmut: "We all came down to Non-Tox, this time on a friday and drew more people than the last time and played with Berlin´s upcoming female band "Seduce", who treated the audience with some great original songs, before Yellowhouse hit the stage, opening as always with "Red Light Diamond" and playing one of the best performances of this winter-tour, despite the sound restrictions of that venue and Toralf breaking a cable. As during the last gigs Dominic´s intro to "Now You´re Gone", i.e. to ask the audience to boe the band off, didn´t work out very well, so it was subsequently dropped. Nobody is willing to boe Yellowhouse off!"
09.01.1998 Berlin, Trash (Beat Club)
A gig in a very trendy place in the heart of Kreuzberg, which had been closed in the meantime. After Nick Turner (from Hawkwind) finished his set in the Trash Club, Yellowhouse started at 23.15 to play and drew some people; some came in from the other concert in that Venue, who enjoyed the gig... some were telling the band afterwards, that they enjoyed Yellowhouse more than Nick Turner, having payed 25.- to see Nick Turner and 5.- (!) to see Yellowhouse. This time it was Hartmut´s birthday, so the song "Ahead Of Our Time" was introduced by Dominic opening a bottle of Champagne. On a sour note the DJ´s of that establishment f***ed it up by preventing the band to perform their two planned encores ("Kill Your Dreams" & "Diana"), for which they almost got lynched by the band and their following.
25.12.1997 Frankfurt/O., Rock it
Toralf: "Really a underground type of venue that booked us over christmas. The sound was really good and we played a short set, which preceeded another band. Despite the audience, that really sucked at times (most of the people seemed to be drunk) it was a good show for us and definetly worth travelling to that town near the polish border. We came back to Berlin at 4 am to unload the gear and Hartmut came from Heidelberg that day after spending christmas with his parents. Everybody was tired."
17.12.1997 Berlin, Non Tox
Toralf: "It was bloddy cold outside (-13°C!) and we played this
bizarre place (together with Paradog) and luckily pulled some people. The sound on stage
was really a drag and we barely couldn´t hear ourselves. On a personal note Domonic O. S.
dedicated "For Ever" to his new old girlfriend Anja, while "Now You´re
Gone" was dedicated to Hartmut Kreckel´s former long-time girlfriend Simone in a
more bizarre way: shortly after the audience was asked to boe the band off, the singer
said: "thank you folks, that was for Hartmut´s old girlfriend..." On another
personal note it was birthday of drummer Lars Thomas, that led to celebrate his 29th anniversary afterwards. We´ll be back!" The set was: Intro - Red Light Diamond -
Silver Shadow - Burn, Learn & Turn – Evolution - Mrs.
Gentle - Return To The Sky – Damnation - Between The Wheels -
Ahead Of Our Time - For Ever - Ain´t No Cure - Now
You´re Gone - Kill Your Dreams -Diana.

27.11.1997 Berlin, Wild at heart
Hartmut: "The stage was so small we really couldn´t move. Musically it went very well and we
played the full set:
25.11.1997 Berlin, Flöz
This was a secret kind of warm-up gig for the next two shows that week with original drummer Lars Thomas. We played a short 40 minutes only set with unusual song order.
19.11.1997 Berlin, Halford
Hartmut Kreckel: "We played our first gig of Yellowhouse Mark II as part of a Newcomers show with a guest-drummer from Texas named Tico Cook. The show went quite well, with only two rehearsals. Sadly this infamous heavy-metal type of place didn´t promote the gig and subsequently didn´t draw many people. Insult to injury we were ripped off by the promotor of that venue. We were payed a *fair share of nothing*..."
