Biography

facts about tony schunko:

Tony Schunko started in 2008 by accident, when Tony, a shouter of an brutal thrash/death band kept his promise to play a Bon Jovi song for a couple of girls! He asked 'Jon Bon' Schunko for help...
That's how the band 'Tony Schunko' was born and only
two months later they recorded their first songs and travelled through UK! Already
in August the independent movie 'Movin' to L.A.' was shot in Los Angeles and
'Tony Schunko' became the band in the movie that tried to fulfill their own kind
of Rock'n'Roll dreams in this city of fallen angels.
This project brought them various radio interviews in Germany, where they talked
about their experiences and even to public television, where they did a couple
of life shows and a tour/making-of diary.

As 'Tony Schunko' is only a pair of music loving friends they let things become
quiet again, cause both having their own non-commercial bandprojects, too but as
rehearsalroom neighbours they met often again and were jamming. With their
mainbands, they did numerous concerts throughout the year - including also
international touring via Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania and deep east
Ukraine (ex-Russia), until the call of Hollywood hauled in again. 272records from
Hollywood asked them to take a song onto their acoustic sampler 'Acoustica
Vol.17'.
Tony and Daniel sat together once again and as a matter of fact new songs were born.

So, if you have the wish to become part of their future story, feel free to book 'em - whereever you are !

what will 2010 happen?:
once again they will tour through California, once again they will play at the legendary Whisky a Gogo, once again they will hit UK's roads , but this time they'll wont come back.....

Lyrics

All you gotta give

Written By: Toni Sunkler

all you gotta give

lying here at the beach
dreamin’ sweetly of what’s mostly hard to reach
realizing that all I need for my life
is someone like you by my side

Help yourself and catch me sweet lady
I need to share the stars with you baby

All you gotta give is love
& I wont leave you any more
all I need from you is love

All you gotta give is love
& I cant leave you anymore
All I need from you is love

Addicted to the depth of your soul and your beauty
Cant imagine what I would miss
Love’s my reason and taking care is my duty
And all I need as proof is your kiss

Help yourself and catch me sweet lady
I need to share the stars with you baby

Ref.: All you gotta give is love
& I wont leave you any more
all I need from you is love......

Dont know how
I could’ve lived all the time
Without you

Dont you know
That I cant stop thinkin of you
There’s nothing else I can do
Without
Youuuuuu.....

Baby

Ref.: All you gotta give is love
& I wont leave you any more
all I need from you is love......
Ref.: All you gotta give is love
& I wont leave you any more
all I need from you is love......
til end.....

Moving to L.A.

Written By: Toni Sunkler

Early up in the morning
& I dont wanna get out
Evry day the same old story,
Wondering what life’s about

First some coffee – then to work
For some bucks you feeeel like a jerk

Oh baby please try to understand
Dont need more school or some helping hand
Just dont wanna live my life at the assembly line
SEX,DRUGS and ROCK’N’ROLL are mine
Does not matter what you say
Cause there aint no way:

I’m movin’ to L.A. .........
You know it’s my decission – that’s all I have to say – livin’ life - in a rock’n’roll way

So I quit my day-job
& took the very next plane
now I#m ready to rumble
an’ take all the fame

people think I’m crazy
but there aint no way:

I’m movin’ to L.A. ........

It’s my life an’ that’s not up to you
So if you need to tell me what to do......
Fuck you!

Movin’ to L.A. .........
Movin’ to L.A.......
.....

(backround talking during fade out/end: Such a wonderful city - All this multicultural racism - the hot smocky st anna brises
From huntigton beach to downtown in only 6 hours - The cooling smog and nearly noooo waterproblems
No work, no money, much crime - Cant imagine a better place
Cant wait , gotta go, LA needs me)

Silent Fight

Written By: toni sunkler

when no rainbow fills your sky
where is the time to say good bye

life's too
short and now you're gone
cannot change the things've been done

god seems
so far away

empty darkness in your soul
silent crys inside
explode

understanding's far away
why it's not them who gotta pay

time for
an answer
time for an end
need to live once again
before I'll
understand

silent - the night
silent is my fight
in the dark hope's
shining bright
but for me,....
it's still silent night

burning sorrow
stabbing deep
cannot change reality
never the day when I'll forget
but
where's the day when you'll regret

time for an answer
time for an end
need
to live once again
before I'll understand

I will always keep your smile in
my heart
It is you that courses me through the dark
your momento keeps me
alife

silent - the night
silent is my fight
in the dark hope's shining
bright
but for me,....
it's still silent night

a silent night
without
you,.....without you
it's still silent night
