WHO IS A CONTACT FOR THE TURBOJUGEND?
   

Please contact jugendwart@turbojugend.org for any question.

WHAT IS THE TURBOJUGEND?
   

The Turbojugend started in the late nineties as Turbonegro's Navy. In more than a decade, the Jugend fostered not only the myth of the band but established a common sense for like-minded individuals, manifested in a Rock'n'Roll lifestyle and friendships all over the world. In particular friendship has been the spirit of the Turbojugend from the beginning and this spirit has been essential to keep the Jugend alive.

Read more about the rules and values of the Turbojugend in the section RULES.

WHY DO YOU USE THE SAME DRESSCODE?
   

The Turbojugend-jacket, or Kutte as it is called in German language, is an almost indispensable component of a member of the Turbojugend. The phenomenon grew when Turbonegro got a Levi's sponsoring deal 1996 and the denim look was spread everywhere. The blank (Levi's) jacket got few embroideries such as the Cap logo on the back along with the warrior and city name on the frontside. 2005 an own jacket production was created by TJ St.Pauli called Jugendmode.

Wearing the jacket a Turbojugendlicher (another German synonym for member of Turbojugend) can recognize other Turbojugendliche all over the world (well only, if they are wearing their Kutte too, dummy ^^) and meet them in the spirit of friendship and Rock'n'Roll.


Some malevolent people would say the Kutte also allows the Turbojugendliche to recognize each other by the stench (because of the Kuttenwaschverbot (read more about that in the section RULES)) but that is only defamation!

Many of the Turbojugendliche also wear the stylish sailor hats. Well, Turbojugend started as Turbonegro's Navy, do we have to say any more? Otherwise ask Happy Tom (he uses the sailor hats on stage), if you are interested in this topic....

WHAT IS A WARRIOR NAME AND HOW IS IT CHOSEN?
   

The warrior name is an important part for the identity of the members of the Turbojugend and can be seen as an embroidery stitched on the Kutte over the right frontside pocket.
 The aliAsses should be memorable. 
Presidents usually favour names that reflect their power and wisdom, popular are modifications of more or less famous historical figures, although some may have had a debatable vita: Caesar Proud, Capitan, El Supremo or Henry Kissmyassinger are among the stronger synonyms. 
Vice president names have something to do with their standing and abilities inside their Turbojugend; they reflect the personalities of the Vice presidents (more information, again, in the RULES).

Also quite popular are warrior names with the syllable ASS in it, such as Sarah-bASS or Lucky AssAssIn, and there are lots of PrincASSes. Why? Well, Turbonegro has a long history of anal references in their songs (remember Rendezvous With Anus, Pain in der Arsch Pocket Full of Cash or Rock Against Ass)...and not to forget the infamous ass-rocket performance by vocalist Hank van Helvete on stage. He resumes, that the ass is the most sexual/beautiful part of the human body...

HOW ARE YOU ORGANIZED?
   

The Turbojugend is organized in chapters. Each chapter is ruled sovereignly by its president. The official Turbojugend registration page is Turbojugend.Net. Only the chapter president can administer the respective page of his/her Turbojugend. He/She decides about the appearance of his/her Turbojugend on the site.


But always keep in mind: our utmost concern is to have fun together but it is also evident for us that everyone wearing a Kutte is aware about this serious topic: You represent a community and should not ruin our image by thinking a jacket gives you a free ride to act stupid or run amok.

Regarding founding or joining of a chapter please read our Guidelines and the HowTo.

WHAT IS THE "SCHLEMMERECK"?

   

The famous dining and sailor restaurant Fred's Schlemmereck, or Schlemmereck as it is called now, is the clubhome of the Turbojugend St. Pauli (Die Mutter aller Jugenden). It is located in the beautiful heart of St. Pauli, at the crossing of Hamburger Berg and Seilerstrasse. It is famous for the mix of maritime and Rock'n'Roll lifestyles. Everything you need to spend a nice evening in St. Pauli. And the food and beer - aaargh! (to quote the page of TJ St. Pauli). Don't forget to inspect the jukebox.


During the WTJT, the Schlemmereck is the major meeting point of Turbojugend from all over the world and thus something like the home of the global Turbojugend.


And of course it is a duty to visit the Schlemmereck once you are on a trip to Hamburg. But behave! Otherwise, you will have to deal with Herbert, the innkeeper of the Schlemmereck!
