Die Ehre, das gig-blog-Q&A-Jahr 2013 eröffnen zu dürfen, gebührt den Dänen von I Got You On Tape, die am 14. Januar im Schocken ihre hochinteressante und schwer zu kategorisierende Musik live darbieten werden. Sollte man schon hingehen.
What was the most wonderful gig you ever played?
Hm, some of the early ones were pretty great, you know before we got signed or anything. Just building it up oldschool. In newer times I guess Roskilde12 was pretty amazing since it was the largest audience we’ve tried (25.000). Also there was a couple of concerts overlooking the ocean in Spain as well, back in 2007 that was really beautiful..
Where would you absolutely love to play?
The colosseum in Rome or the Giza pyramids.
Please describe your worst studio experience.
When we cut our first album we had a song called Grasshopper we were trying to record. It had a pretty long improvised outro and the technician couldn’t turn some 10 min max control off in pro-tools. So we did like 10 takes before he finally got it. That was pretty tiring..
What would your music sound like if Elvis had never existed?
The title of the book that touched you most is…
For my sake, it’s the Divine Comedy by Dante Aligheri.
Which ringtone do you use?
A Standard Bell Sound seems satisfying.
The most beautiful love song ever is called…
Quicksilver Daydreams Of Maria by Townes Van Zandt.
