wie wir zu piloten wurden…

wir haben für euch aufgeschrieben, wie unser neues album “pilots” entstanden ist. was das für ein merkwürdiges luftschiff auf dem cover ist. warum ein kettcar-gitarrist auf “pilots” akkordion spielt. weshalb es drei jahre gedauert hat, bis das album fertig war. was einer unserer songs in schweden gemacht hat. und warum wir in der zwischenzeit “computerpilots” hießen.

mein schlimmstes erlebnis

heimspiel. das war berlin. viele bekannte gesichter im nbi. mit dabei robert. wir: happy. zwei zugaben. danke, leute! auch der offday: klasse – und lecker. eine szene aus dem thai snack in friedrichshain: “ein mal die 2, zwei mal die 3, dann 58, 37 und 61. und drei mango-lassi.” wow! am nächsten tag nur noch: “wie immer?” – “klar”. wir leben für zwei tage wie gott in thailand, und wünschen lediglich die kleine luftmatratze zum teufel. abends plausch und rausch mit den moonbabies, zum nikolaus schoki in neuen schuhen.

dann rollen. raus aus berlin. langersehntes wiedersehen mit sometree und der p7-crew in magdeburg. alle wie immer – alle super. nach dem konzert kellertanz. ein wodka-red-bull pro getränkemarke. danach ins hotel. drei stunden schlaf. und alarm! raus. duschen. schleppen. bus. fahren. halten – und dann das schlimmste, was ich bisher auf dieser tour erlebt habe: big mac zum frühstück. es kann nur besser werden. heute in hannover mit kettcar.

new live dates

we’re going to be on the road in may with sweden’s moonbabies (see schedule). if you wanna read our stories from the road, come here every once in a while. by the way: the tour blog will probably be in german…


privatclub, berlin w/moonbabies

when we sat down for dinner at markthalle weltrestaurant in kreuzberg, there was no “schweinebraten”. instead the staff served us, the moonbabies and their crew spaetzle and bacon. we enjoyed the tasty meal sitting in the place where “herr lehmann”, a popular german movie, had been shot. supplied with an extra-portion of “elektrolyte” we played a 50 minutes set at the privatclub, which is situated under the restaurant, and afterwards watched the moonbabies.

our good friend robert had made it to the gig, too. he was suffering from a bad flu before and couldn’t supply us with visuals in munich, leipzig and hamburg. as the privatclub had no beamer, robert couldn’t do his job in berlin either. but we were just glad that he had recovered. another surprise for us was that andré had come to watch the gig. that brought funny memories of the tour with sometree back into our minds, as andré had been the manager then.

it was the last gig for the moonbabies in germany that evening. so we sat together ‘til five or so in the morning and talked – mainly about “knoedel” and how to make them (ola!). when it was time to leave, everybody was convinced that privatclub had been a nice tour-finale, even without the presence of “herr lehmann”.

thanks: everybody @ privatclub and markthalle weltrestaurant, moonbabies (carina, ola, per and hendrik), ralf and andré of 2fortheroad


nato, leipzig w/moonbabies

what an arrival in leipzig! as the nato has once been a cinema, there is a huge billboard above the entrance. and guess what it said? “moonbabies” and “computer” stood there in big black letters. first thing we did was take a photo of course…

while the friendly staff prepared an italian dinner for us, we played a 50 minutes set with new songs from the forthcoming album “give me a frame”. “1800 (frozen to death)” and “care about me” were highly acclaimed by the audience. being content with the show, we afterwards sat down and watched the moonbabies. as smoking was prohibited in the concert hall, some of us stayed at the merch stall talking to people and sipping cold drinks. we spent the night at a friends and headed off to berlin the next morning. thank you, leipzig! we’d love to come back soon…

thanks: everybody @ nato, moonbabies + crew, anna-lena + jule
