The artist's book »Monday Shrimp Club Dolphin Diary" by Christoph Knecht describes Christian Herrndorf (deputy head of the local editorial office of the Rheinische Post, Düsseldorf) very aptly as follows:

»Düsseldorf has a tradition of single-making. Cabaret after the Second World War – the “Kom(m)ödchen” has made easy. Punk in the 70s – the Ratinger Hof has made easy. Art around 2015 – the Monday Club Shrimp makes easy. Over the club evenings of living in Dusseldorf artists perform Christoph Knecht, Florian false and Martin Denker at some point to the computer and make it easy. They are distinguished dolphins – funny, wild, charming, kitschy, philosophically. They improvise, let the other room for solos, grow together and reduce the other, where it needs to be. They are also punks and jazz musicians of art. The best part: What fascinated observers of this arose live art has, in the book, which will appear in the SALZ-Verlag, lost none of its power and madness – as a very rare, because really good live album.«
