***** Interview with Pabst *****

Q. When did PABST start? Tell us about the history...
A: The band started in early 2016, or maybe a bit earlier in winter 2015. Tore and I wanted to start a power trio kind of band with only drums, guitar and bass, after we had dabbled in electronic music for a while. We recorded the EP in Spring and after that Tilman joined.

Q: Who are your influences?
A: Garagepop from the 60s, Protometal from the 70s, Synthpop and Goth from the 80s, Indierock from the 90s, R’n’B from the early 2000s, Lo-fi and Postcore from more recent years, and last but not least the Muscle Shoals Rhythm section.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
A: Nirvana - In Utero
Michael Jackson - Off the Wall
Depeche Mode - Black Celebration
Dirty Beaches - Badlands
Converge - You Fail Me

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A: Erik: Anxious but good.

Tilman: If you only play one instrument at a time, you can really lose yourself. If you've got to sing as well, you start thinking too much.

Tore: Yes, too much thinking is not good for me either.

Q. How do you describe PABST sounds?
A: Hook-driven, fuzzy, grungy Garagerock with a little R'n'B feel to it.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
A: We recorded the EP in a small studio in Berlin that is located on a rail station. We played drums and bass live and dubbed the guitar parts. Vocals and synth noises were recorded at home, cause in the studio those weren’t even finished.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
A: DYN from Berlin, Show Me The Body from Brooklyn, LISS from Aarhus, Aldous RH from Manchester

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
A: We already made a cover of Ghetto Supastar by Pras, ODB and Mya. I personally like covering songs from a very different musical style than your own and see what comes out of it.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: Releasing the Skinwalker EP and playing some more shows, record new songs, play even more shows.

Q: Any parting words?
A: Hau rein, halt die Ohr’n steif!
