A good twenty years ago RPWL stepped into the limelight with their debut album. Their album "God Has Failed" completely revived the art rock after the Floydian model in German lands. Now the band from Freising celebrates their anniversary with a live recording - in Corona times only for the living room at home. Singer/keyboardist Yogi Lang and guitarist Kalle Wallner talk about the new recording, look back at the time of the album's creation and also tell about the special relationship between RPWL and the Aschaffenburg eclipsed circle.
The second solo album after "No Decoder" from 2010 was a long time coming. Of course, Yogi Lang, his character's singer, songwriter and keyboardist the art rocker RPWL is a busy man. In the meantime, the Freising team started with several concept albums. "I didn't really want to wait that long, but I had to hand in songs for RPWL albums again and again. I really had to do the solo work and keep the songs," admits Lang in retrospect. The question of where the differences to the RPWL material are is obvious. "The beauty is that I can be more radical and build my own world here because I don't have to stick to a band concept." But isn't there also an overriding theme on "A Way Out Of Here"? "But yes," laughs Yogi Lang, "the subject is me! That's the radical."
