The band was originally formed in 1980, featuring Timo Blunck, Holger Hiller, Thomas Fehlmann, and percussionist . The group's name stands for Das Palais Schaumburg in Bonn, the Cold War era residence of the German chancellor.

Felhmann became a respected Berlin-based techno and house producer, and joined Orb. Good Fridge (Apollo, 1998) is an anthology of assorted tracks. Debuttarono con i singoli Macht Mich Glucklich Wie Nie, Telephon, Rote Lichter e Wir Bauen Eine Neue Stadt, la maggior parte dei quali venne compilata su Das Single Kabinet. Il loro stile era una bizzarra forma di musica da ballo. Hiller abbandonò il gruppo dopo la pubblicazione del loro album di debutto, Palais Schaumburg (Phonogram, 1981). Fehlmann fu leader del gruppo su altri due album, Lupa (1982) e Parlez Von Schaumburg.

Still, Holger Hiller and Thomas Fehlmann properly stood at the helm. As a lyricist, Hiller is not to be underestimated, particularly in relation to the words’ political undertones. Unlike German bands like Slime from Hamburg or Male from Dusseldorf, where it was more about yelling punk slogans and working with clichés, Hiller used incredibly imaginative images to describe what wasn’t working in German society-words taken from postcards or newspaper headlines, reinterpreted as cut-ups and reassembled into poetry

While in Hamburg, Fehlmann and Holger Hiller formed Palais Schaumburg, who made their recorded debut in 1980 and became one of the leading forces in German new wave, or NDW ("Neue Deutsche Welle"). The band recorded three albums through 1984, a period during which Fehlmann contributed collaborative tracks to the Schnitzler-produced compilation Das Ist Schönheit, reinterpreted Paul Hindemith's Wir Bauen Eine Stadt with Hiller, and cut a single with Peter Gordon, among other activities. For the decade's latter half, Fehlmann floated from project to project. Thomas Fehlmann Max Loderbauer.
