Zoni (singer)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Zoni (born April 12, 1967 in Magdeburg , actually: Peter Niemann ) was the singer of the former Oi! -Band Lost Boys and has been running his own band Lost Boyz Army since 2008 .


Zoni grew up in Magdeburg. In 1984/85 he joined the growing skinhead / punk scene. As a result, he came into conflict with the Ministry of State Security and was arrested and interrogated several times. Shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall , he managed to emigrate to the West, where he was accommodated in a disaster control camp in Wesel . After being housed in an emergency shelter for a short time, he moved to Friedrichsfeld in March 1990 . He joined the group Lost Boys, whose singer he remained until 2008. Due to personal and musical differences, he dropped out and was replaced by Adrian "Schwefel" Gnyp.

In mid-2008 he founded his own band Lost Boyz Army , which got a record deal with Sunny Bastards .

In addition to his band activities, he wrote under the pseudonym "Zonenpeter" for Willi Wucher's fanzine Scumfuck and worked on the label and in the record store. For a while he also ran his own mail order company for t-shirts and records called Mr. Nobody .
