A shady strip shed with the subtle name "Titty Twister" somewhere in the Niemannsland behind the Mexican border. A dancer (Selma Hayek) enters the stage in front of the assembled half-world. Fire columns are erupting. A sparkling, sparkling guitar lick starts and her lascivious slowness begins, accompanied by the no less hypnotic sounds of the song "After Dark", presented by a house-band in Mariachi suits: Tito and Tarantula. This scene from Robert Rodriguez's cult film and Quentin Tarantino collaboration "From Dusk Till Dawn" should have burned into the collective consciousness of pop culture for ever since she first flickered across the screen in 1996.
The first international success story is documented by the Rockpalast appearance from 21.06.1998 on the Loreley aptly. It was Tito & Tarantula's third guest performance on German stages, then with violinist and mandolin player Lyn Bertles. The seething mixture of blues, rock and Americana captivated the audience as well as the shady audience in the famous film sequence. While Tito and Tarantula continued to publish albums in the following years and in changing musical occupations and constantly toured on our continent, the record included as a bonus on video 2 is certainly one of the most unusual concert stories that a musician's life writes. As a club show planned (capacity 350 people), the audience was so large that the concert was quickly moved on the street and made with a spontaneous open air show before 5,000 people from the need a virtue. The Rockpalast appearance from the autumn of 2008, recorded in Bonner Harmonie, shows Tito and Tarantula no less memorable and in their perhaps most natural environment: to a moody, dull light, the band plays a hot-blooded set of pieces from their then album "Back Into Darkness".
