The founding members were Christiane Rösinger and Almut Klotz , Heiner Weiss, Katrin Filzner and Funny van Dannen , who was only part of the band for a short time. Herman Herrmann joined as guitarist .
The band name is a reference to the television series Lassie .
At times, the Lassie Singers worked with various greats from German-speaking pop , such as Bernd Begemann , King Rocko Schamoni , Die Government , Eff Jott Krüger ( Ideal ) and Jochen Distelmeyer ( Blumfeld ). In 1996 the album Hotel Hotel was released, which was produced by Thomas Meinecke and recorded by Chris von Rautenkranz .
Her texts often dealt with clichéd gender relations with biting humor, e.g. B. in the couple lie , my future ex-boyfriend or love is often overrated . They achieved their greatest success in 1994 with the single It's such a shame .
In 1998 the group disbanded. Almut Klotz and Christiane Rösinger opened the record label Flittchen Records . Rösinger founded the band Britta and released solo albums under her own name from 2010. Klotz teamed up with Sandra Grether for the band Parole Trixi , with Maximilian Hecker for the band Maxi unter Menschen and with Christian Dabeler for the duo Klotz + Dabeler. She also founded the Popchor Berlin .
