Written by insideindyhomes

What’s going on there? The punk rock band Feine Sahne Fischfilet published a mysterious Instagram statement on Thursday, in which they spoke of a website that is likely to publish allegations against the band in the near future. The band continued in the statement: “We don’t know what it’s about, but we will take these allegations seriously and deal with them. We have never tried to cover any allegations in the past.”

It also said: “We are aware that a band that only consists of guys can lead to problems. It was precisely because of this awareness that we understood that we wanted to start with ourselves first and we are right in the middle of the process here.”

In response to the upcoming allegations, Feine Sahne Fischfilet have set up an email address that people who feel the need to investigate further allegations against the band can contact. The band itself should not have access to the account, instead it is managed by misc, an “agency for cultural change”. The Audiolith label already worked with this agency in the wake of #MeToo allegations in 2021. In addition, Feine Sahne Fischfilet also refer to external advice centers.

The Instagram page on which the allegations were to be published is called “No one has to be a perpetrator”. This account has probably organized feminist meetings up to now, but is now said to have changed its name. Almost all older postings have been deleted. On May 3, the operators explained that they actually wanted to delete their account completely. But then they were approached by a “group” that “wants to pursue an incredibly strong goal and needs to reach it quickly”. It went on to say: “It will be about someone you really all know, many who have heard the rumors and many who have not dared to take action against him and his influence.”

These are the allegations against Jan “Monchi” Gorkow and Feine Sahne Fischfilet

The announced post of “No one has to be a perpetrator” followed on Thursday evening. The allegations against fine cream fish fillet are substantiated on the Instagram page and on a blog that has been set up. Accordingly, their singer Jan Gorkow is said to have committed sexual violence and abuse of power. There it says, among other things:

“We think: Jan Gorkow is “ruthless”, “violent”, “narcissistic”, “tough”, “excessive”, crosses borders and is a self-confessed local patriot. There are allegations of sexualised violence and abuse of power against Jan Gorkow. We know he’s a perpetrator. We want to offer all those affected the greatest possible protection and will therefore not publish any details about the crimes here. We demand: look behind the facade! Solidarity with all those affected!”

The allegations do not only affect Jan Gorkow directly: “We cannot understand the actions and the silence of the label audiolith, the management JKP and above all Feine Sahne Fischfilet and are shocked how the public image of this person, who adorns himself with solidarity and political actions, is holding up can. We give all those affected unreserved faith and demand: No stage for perpetrators! Stop the mackerel! Stop sexual assault!”

Who “we” are, i.e. senders and sources, is not clear from the postings. Due to “the large number of inappropriate and obnoxious comments” the comment function has been disabled. Read the full statement here.

Feine Sahne Fischfilet have not yet publicly responded to the allegations made.

The band recently announced a few weeks ago that two old band members have said goodbye and that a new guitarist and singer named Hauke ​​has joined the band. The band is also currently working on new music. The current album by Feine Sahne Fischfilet STURM & DRECK was released almost four years ago. Many live shows followed.
