'It all started with a few cases of beer and some free time on our hands.
While jamming with Karsten, we decided to head up to Udo's studio next door
to record some shit, just for laughs.
As the tape started rolling, the three of us improvised 6 songs in a row. No
pressure, no arrangements, just music.
After listening to the stuff we just created, we all felt really fucking
So we started the band right there, at that moment.
We all had been doin' music for years, but this was the first time together.
There was no typical musician-shit going on, we were just creating great
stuff without any hussle.
Simply put, diamonds are made under pressure, NOT music.
If you just let go, the end result will always be better than the
over-arranged and over-produced shit, people make these days.
You have to be true to yourself, stay true to the song and just do what
Fuck everything and everybody else.
Udo started making songs.

from, which instruments we play and how much drugs we take?!?
You should just concentrate to the song. That's what we did.
Every song is a movie, or a play. It's a story.
And every listener can make their own versions of our songs in their heads.
A bit different everytime you listen to it...
And writing about our own music is useless.
There's so many elements and layers to it, so it would be impossible to try
to explain it somehow.
And why should one?
I'm not gonna be the one.
Time of bullshit is over.
Time of real music is now.
