worst show/club you‘ve ever played:
The worst shows are the ones with technical issues. When the soundguy can’t get the PA running and we have to aim one small monitor box at the audience and can’t hear ourselves, when the monitors don’t work at all and we have to use in ear monitoring for the first time with shitty mobile headphones that keep falling out. Or when we break a finger a day before the show, switch instruments and still play. Stuff like that.
funniest thing ever happened on tour:
One time in Hungary we played a show at this hipster bar. We didn’t play in the barroom, because the owner didn’t want the bands to make music there, but below in a dingy basement. One of the punks was wearing a huge lampshade as a hat. Since we sing in our local Austrian dialect we added obscene rubbish to our lyrics because no one understood us anyway. Afterwards we ate pizza at a restaurant that was more of a brothel and then we all slept in a room together with several parrots and a hamster. The wire of the birdcage stuck out in the middle of the room and every time someone got up during the night, we heard them run into the wire and scream. We love Eastern Europe.
Favourite tour drink:
Kalimotxo (red wine mixed with Coca-Cola)
alltime favourite record in the tourbus:

These 5 bands inspired us:
Rancid, Against Me!, The Clash, Manu Chao, Ramones
One band you want to play with:

a „no-go“ at your shows:
Violence and discrimination.
We are working on our third album right now, which will be out somewhen in 2020. Expect less acoustic guitars and more punk rock.
that’s something we want to achieve as a band:
Continuously working on new songs, developing as a live band and always staying true to ourselves. Defining the renowned genre of Mundartpunk and influencing generations of future artists singing in their native language.
