eclipsed: Tell me the origin of the band.
Francis Tobolsky: Well, I started the band with an ad when I moved to Dresden four years ago to study. In my old hometown Chemnitz I didn't see the chance to find like-minded people. My claim was to make classic blues rock by Free and Rory Gallagher. First of all our drummer Axel Pätzold reported himself on the ad and peu à peu they all came together. About Tim George on guitar and finally Patrick Dröge on bass.
eclipsed: And how did you find your way to this special sound, a mix of classic hard & blues rock with Tull's flute, Krautrock influences and modern retro rock à la Blues Pills?

Interview with Paul Pott (bass), Dirk Jan Müller (keyboards), Dennis Gockel (drums) and Tipi Mike (guitar)
eclipsed: After two live-recorded albums you have now improvised in the studio. What effect has the "new" environment had? Is it a different kind of jamming?
Paul Pott: The new environment seemed a bit distorted to me, as I was standing in the studio with an acute herniated disc and a paralyzed leg and stunned myself with all sorts of colorful pills and a bottle of whiskey so that I could hold out the weekend. But in any case, I can say that recording in the studio has the advantage that you can stop a jam if you don't like the result or if the jam doesn't work. On stage you're nailed to pull something like that through and bring it to an end.
