Ich kann sie kaum noch zählen, die peinlichen Momente… – EROBIQUE
Eh eh. Not easy… Well, we like to remember when our then keyboards player in a VERY popular club in Italy just stepped up to the microphone (with no apparent reason at all) saying: “I really hope this place shuts down, it’s really shitty!”. That was quite akward. – JULIE’S HAIRCUT
I do remember when I was playing in a metal band, Kurt Jarls. We were playing an intro to a song (which we thought was pretty cool) and my part was striking an E after two bars. I thought it was a thunderous chord and wanted to make it as impressive as possible, so I got up on a chair, to be able to jump down as I stroke the chord. The whole thing was filmed and watching the result was…. well quite embarrassing. There I stood, stiff as a pine tree. Not so much jumping down in a spectacular stile, as more or less falling down in slow motion. There was nothing thunderous nor impressive about the whole move! Uuuh, hehehehe. Good idea, bad performance. – HELLSONGS
Being next to a fully nude Isaiah is one, but after touring with both Andy and Isaiah nothing is embarrasing anymore. – THE FREEKS
Can you list all the things you lost on tour?
Lost a lot of braincells…. – GUSGUS
Some stupid fuck-ups broke into our car when we played at a festival in Sweden, stole both my guitars and Johan’s bag which was filled with beer. They must’ve been retards since they didn’t grab Johan’s synth which is pretty much more expensive than those ten beers… – HELLSONGS
Jon’s virginity… – THE POSTMARKS
Which was the last movie you saw in cinema?
“God Bless Iceland” an amazing documentary about the fall of the Icelandic economy. – GUSGUS
Which was the last album you bought?
“Love is the song we sing: San Francisco nuggets 1965-1970″ – JULIE’S HAIRCUT
The world’s best live club?
Hard to answer this one, the one place I will always remember was one in Stuttgart, Dei Rhore? Not sure how it was spelled but it is a tunnel, built into a mountain. Played there in Nebula with Unida and somebody stole my belt buckle. While I was in the shower. – THE FREEKS
Why are your concerts the best ones?
You should come and find out – THE RAVEONETTES
If your music was food, what would it taste like?
Wow. There is a very special ice cream that they only do in Puglia, in the south of Italy. It’s called “3 Nocelle” and it’s a multi-layered, stratified bomb of pleasure. – JULIE’S HAIRCUT
Meine Musik ist kein Essen. – EROBIQUE
Dog food. – THE RAVEONETTES
Are the Beatles overrated?
Everything before “Rubber Soul”, yeah. THE POSTMARKS

Isaiah, but Luke our light guy comes in a close second. – THE FREEKS
Beleidige besoffen unbegründet nette Leute. Manchmal. – EROBIQUE
You should come and find out. – THE RAVEONETTES
Which question do you absolutely want to be asked?
Can I buy 10 of those? – THE FREEKS
“How do you feel like being in the most successful band in the world?”. Of course nobody ever asks that. – JULIE’S HAIRCUT
Sometime in the 80s the rest of Motörhead gave Lemmy an ultimatum, that he had to take a shower, otherwise they wouldn’t let him on the bus. How’s the olfactory situation when you’re on tour?
Brush your teeth, you breath smells like a horses’s ass!!! I’m not saying who but it isn’t me!! You see, you can’t really give an ultimatum to anyone when you don’t know who to give it to. It’s funny how everybody denies it when the fact is that someone just cut some serious ass!! – THE FREEKS
