[Below our Q&A with the whole band]
1. How would you describe your sound in a few words?
Rene: Muddy, dirty and amateurish.
Ronald: Sounds like trouble.
Norman: Music coming from an uninhabited island.
2. Name 3 bands without whom you wouldn't exist.
Rene: The Sea and Cake, Slowdive, Jamiroquai.
Norman: Camel, Tortoise, Milton Nascimento.
3. If you'd have the chance to work with any film director, who would that be?
Rene: Michael Haneke.
Ronald: James Cameron.
Norman: Werner Herzog.
4. Tell us a bit about the making of these songs.
Rene: Rehearsing-recording-mixing has been a mix-up of (1) broken music equipment during recording, using paperclips or scotch tape to fix it and (2) eating loads of instant noodles, smoking cigarettes and drinking eggnog.
Ronald: We get together and start making songs. We record them on Norman's computer.
Norman: We receive visionary transmissions from distant places and put these into songs. There's no other way of explaining the process of creation.
We let no one interfere with the music until it is complete and ready for listening.
Technology is not a tool but an instrument.
Sound and music are inseparable of each other.
5. Do you still buy CDs/vinyl/ tape?
Rene: A few LPs per year.
Ronald: Sumtimez when I get money from my parents. Haven't quit yet.
Norman: Definitely looking for some older vinyls since some of the music doesn't exist in any other form. Though usually not buying music because not wealthy enough. In the future - sure.
