Biography

Supermax was a project of Austrian musician and producer, Kurt Hauenstein, best known for "Love Machine", a 1977 German #4 single, that peaked at #6 in Switzerland, #9 in Austria and #96 in US.

The members of the band were Kurt Hauenstein, Hans Ochs (guitar), Ken Taylor (bass guitar), Lothar Krell (keyboards), Peter Koch (drums) and the singers Cee Cee Cobb and Jean Graham. Later, Bernadet Onore Eben and Jessica Hauenstein, the daughter of Kurt Hauenstein, joined the group as backing vocal singers. In 1981, Supermax toured as the first mixed-race band through South Africa. Despite warnings and death threats, Supermax finished the tour, but this made some countries refuse permits for entry, and consequently the group was black-listed by some political organizations.[citation needed]
