Klaus K - alias Kjellerup, alias uncle Tjelly: Born 27. april 1954. Height 178 cm. Weight 72 kg, shoe size: 43
Political observance: benighted, absolute monarchy
Klaus K is "Danser med Drenge" conductor [Kapellmeister] and bass guitarist. A very domineering type, who has only ever met one who was more than his match, that being when he met the film director, Søren Fauli. Kjellerup is a competent and ambitious bloke, who since his childhood has struggled to gain the attention of his parents, which was very difficult, because he as the first born son in a larger siblings group of full- half- and quarter brothers and sisters, who soon left him to himself and his own initiative.
His parents felt, that little Klaus should join his fathers old family firm, the shipping company C.K. Hansen, and therefore Klaus was placed in the finest schools, Krebs' School and Sorø Academy, where he in the meantime did not fare particularly well. That is why he, as a countermeasure, developed rebellious tendencies and a dislike towards all systems, authorities and people, that think that "right" things exist, and that it should be done in the "right' way. In other words: A completely normal childish pubescent reaction.
The problem in the meantime for Klaus is that, in contrast to every one else, he has not had the ability to grow out of his pubescent and childish way of behaving. This gives itself expression in many entertaining incidences, for example, when he fights with his 5 year old son, about who should turn on the television set, when they are going to watch "Teddy Bear and Chicken". Or when he kicks an elderly lady in the bum, because she has queue jumped in front of him at the checkout counter at the supermarket ISO.
Otherwise Klaus has all manner of reasons to be satisfied
with his life - he has a delightful family and a beautiful young
wife, actress Wencke Barfoed, and two delightful children - they
live in a nice place and have sufficient money - furthermore he has been
very successful as a songwriter, journalist and as a stock market speculator.
He even has a great orchestra where he is permitted to make all the decisions,
well nearly all - but even so he is still not satisfied. That is why
Klaus is always a bit surly - if not to say
But Klaus is not happy with this image. He is not his
own type. So therefore at times he tries - with a great deal of talent
Included in Klaus' other eccentricities is, his habit
of pulling the filters off cigarettes before he smokes them, plus
he refuses to step onto any form of public transport, for political reasons.
Klaus accepts it as an honour, if people in the record industry, refer
"Må jeg være fri!" - ("May I be free" - "God!,
give me strength" - "Come on! Give us a break")
Klaus writes a bit about himself:
"Why is it so difficult to be a human being? Why is
life a scandal? Why is it impossible to enjoy oneself for more than 12
seconds and 7 frames at a time? Every time you, for example, have just
met up with a new beautiful girlfriend, you can be certain that the next
In my next life - that is not the first one. There
I will be a King, but in the life after the next - there I will be a gene
