Herman Dune

Biography

Herman Düne, also known, since 2005, as Herman Dune (without the ü), is a Rock & Roll Duo.

The line-up for Herman Dune is now (as in 2011) 1/David-Ivar Herman Dune: Voice, Song-Writing and Guitars. David-Ivar is most of the time called Yaya Herman Dune or just Yaya. 2/Néman Herman Dune: Drums and some backing vocals. Néman is now known as Cosmic Néman

Herman Dune started their career internationally, thanks to UK DJ John Peel who played them a lot and invted them to something like 10 Peel Sessions.

Until 2006 they gained a cult status by touring across the world intensively and releasing a lot of music through independent, punk, DIY or Underground Record labels.

In 2006, the release of GIANT (Source etc./Virgin) coincides with the band becoming a duo, with André taking leave. Giant propels Herman Dune to a wider recognition. They soon record and release NEXT YEAR IN ZION.

In 2010, Herman Dune cut loose of all previous bonds to start their own Record Company STRANGE MOOSIC. They go record new material in Portland,Oregon with Adam Selzer and release their new songs in an album called STRANGE MOOSIC (Strange Moosic/G.U.M/City Slang/Fortuna Pop)

STRANGE MOOSIC is a new start for Herman Dune, and "Tell Me Something I Don't Know", the first single, announces change with a video featuring a Young runaway Yeti and actor John Hamm from Mad Men. Herman Dune will intensively tour through 2011 and 2012, with the most simple line-up, often just core duo Yaya and Cosmic Néman, but also with Bass Player Ben Pleng.
