Kabeedies 23.06.2010 Interview Katie

The Kabeedies

KATIE: Hi, I’m Katie from The Kabeedies.
RTC: How does your father describes your music to the neighbors?
KATIE: He probably would define it not how I would want it to. He probably would describe it like Punk, but it is not. He is cool, he is just stuck in his own way and he loves Blondie.
RTC: How and why did you start with music?
KATIE: Evan the guitarist and I were in school together and we just wanted to start a band and we’ve been in this awful band called The Inmates and eventually after school somehow we ended up with the new band The Kabeedies.
RTC: Can you live of your music or do you have other jobs?
KATIE: Well I work part time in a bar called The Bird Cage. We earn a little money with the music, maybe a little bit more would be nice.
RTC: But you are not so long on the run.
KATIE: No not so long. We struggle but it is OK.
RTC: How come that you are so often in Munich during a very short time period? For me this is OK.
KATIE: We get treated really nicely everywhere in Germany, everybody has been so kind to us and we have a booker (Hi Peter) who is from Munich. He sets us up with really good gigs and we like very much to play in Germany, here everybody enjoys our music, it is better than in England cause they aren’t so generous and especially London can be really snobby.
RTC: Best song in which you were involved?
KATIE: My favorite song is actually Come Out Of The Blue, we have played it tonight but we did not record it yet. When we go home on Sunday we gonna start mixing and it will eventually be our next single.
RTC: 7″ vinyl?
KATIE: Yes and available to download.
RTC: Best song which you would like to have written?
KATIE: It changes day by day. Probably at the moment it will be Always Like This by Bombay Bicycle Club or a all time favorite song might be anything by the Everly Brothers.
RTC: You still remember the first record you bought?
KATIE: It was Blur by Blur.
RTC: And your favorite book and why?
KATIE: I love reading and again it changes, it depends on my mood. I love the book Bothering High and the collection of short stories of Thomas Mann, I defiantly recommend reading his short stories.
RTC: Last one, imagine you are God and you are able to set up a festival (even with dead persons or dissolved bands), who should be on stage?
KATIE: Chuck Berry
Vampire Weekend
Blondie, to represent the women
Mondy Ray, cause one of them just stands there
RTC: All right, thanks and over, see you with The Kabeedies soon again live on stage.

The Kabeedies 23.06.2010 Puerto Giesing München

The Kabeedies

Da waren sie wieder: The Kabeedies aus Norwich, UK. Vor Kurzem erst auf dem Theatron Festival und ratz fatz zurück in München. Diesmal gab es einen kleinen, intimen Auftritt im Puerto Giesing. Zeitlich etwas ungeschickt gelegen, (nach dem WM-Spiel Deutschland gegen England) waren nicht so viele Leute da, wobei das der Stimmung keinen Abbruch tat und Katie Allard, Rory Hill, Evan Jones und Fab Bell namens The Kabeedies haben gerockt. Konzertfotos vom klasse „The Kabeedies“ – Gig hier.
Hast du die Band schon mal live erleben dürfen? Und wie war es?

The Kabeedies from Norwich UK made it another time to Munich. And because their gig at the Theatron festival was good, Rock The Cam went to see them at the Puerto Giesing for the second time. Not so many people (cause it was right after the England vs Germany soccer match – bad timing) but Katie, Evan, Rory and Fab (The Kabeedies) played another good concert. Enjoy the concert photos.

Sepultura 28.07.2010 Backstage München


Seit 25 Jahren in der Musikwelt: Sepultura aus Brasilien. Vom Original-line up gibt es nur noch Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr. (Bass), aber mit Derrick Green (Gesang), Andreas Kisser (Gitarre) und Jean Dollabella (Schlagzeug) ist Sepultura immer noch Sepultura! Nach dem Intro kam die Band und knallte alles weg. So voll habe ich das Backstage noch nicht erlebt und die Menge wurde ordentlich gerockt. Bis nach Hinten konnte man Haare beim Headbangen fliegen sehen und es wurde zünftig abgemoscht. Auch im Jahr 2010 ist mit Sepultura zu rechnen, das hat das Konzert in München auf der 1 / 4 Century – Tour bewiesen.

1 / 4 century in the music biz: Sepultura from Brazil. Only Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr. (bass) is left from the original line up, but with Andreas Kisser (guitar), Derrick Leon Green (voice) and Jean Dollabella (drums) Sepultura is still Sepultura! During the Alex Intro the band came on stage and kicked the place. Never seen the Backstage hall so packed. And the audience was headbanging and moshing all around in the venue. And even after 25 years Sepultura are vivid and alive!

Dust Bolt 28.07.2010 Backstage München

Dust Bolt

Aus der Ecke Landsberg am Lech kommen Dust Bolt und die Jungs (Lenny B. voc. + guitars, Flo D. guitars, Bene M. bass und Nico R. drums) durften vor Sepultura ran. Leider (für mich) war das Backstage bumsvoll und ich zu spät, so konnte ich nur noch drei Lieder unter der Mühe nach Vorne zu kommen anhören. Tja und deshalb leider auch nur ein Bild. Doch dies zeigt was Dust Bolt für Musik spielen: Trash Metal.

The band Dust Bolt comes from Bavaria and I was almost able to catch them live. They were playing at the Backstage before Sepultura and unfortunately (for me) the venue was packed and I was late. So I only was able to catch three songs while trying to get in front. No easy thing and therefore just one picture of Nico, Bene, Lenny and Flo. But this Dust Bolt pictures shows what kind of music they are playing: Trash Metal!
