We enter the bus for the interview, well for my taste
many people for a structured interview but we will see. We (Conny and
I) sit in a circle with Victor, La Nuit, Alex, Noras and the
two girls, but noone introduced Noras to us, so we are a little
confused about him.
01) I am sure you
expected this question, but how will the leaving of Grace influence you
on stage, I mean who does his job now at the live shows?? How does it
( after a long discussion that grace is not the main thing of
this question!) We practiced the new songs together with Noras (points
at his neighbor) and feel pretty comfortable with it!!
02) La Nuit: Did
changed for you now that you are an official bandmember? Or is it just
the same like playing with them before.
La Nuit: Yeah well
I am a complete motherfucker now
(laughs). Nooo nothing changed!
to La Nuit: You are rich!!
Nuit: No I am not!
03) Your album Giga
Hearts is in stores for a while now, are you happy with the success of
it, how is the feedback??
Feedback is very good, there is still a lot of
work to do, you know we now have this tour and then playing a lot of
Festivals, but we wanna do more live shows in the UK and the
Netherlands or in Spain and Russia and maybe we wanna work out some
Shows in Finland.
04) How do you see
developement of your sound?? In wich direction will you go on, are
there things you wanna change or make better?
don’t know cause I think before the
release of the third, the next album we will take a longer time,
because we wanna do something very important, something like a double
album or stuff like that. I think there would be a lot of New- wave
influences. What we now do is to experience the new album live, to feel
the songs, to live them and get more influences that we can use for the
05) How important are
your lyrics for your music??
It‘s very important, important for the
concept behind the music, it should bring you near to the music and
implice you a complete picture of the main thing, the concept of the
Band as a whole thing and the lifestyle, not as a song for
06) You are what is
called a “live band“, can you imagine to produce a
Victor: Yeah but I
think for a good DVD you need to have
very good stuff to do it, good recordings, but if we are able to figure
out some DVD’s from various Live shows we wanna do it in the
next year, that would be great!
07) Some of you
other bands, is Dope Stars Inc. your number one or don’t you
have a ranking of wich band is the most important for you?
It’s much the same I think!!
Nuit, Victor & Alex talking all at the same time, something
about the best thing is Rock ’n‘ Roll... sorry,
hard to understand on the tape!)
We do all these band things cause it’s part of our
career, part of our life, so music is our life it’s just like
experiencing different things, music in the same time but
it’s not more or less important.
08) What comes
mean your plans after this Tour??
La Nuit: Relax!!
We plan to do maybe an EP!! Around next winter but it depends
mostly on the record label and their release dates. But we are working
I also start some new band! (laughter)
09) Describe a
I usually sleep a lot!! (everyone laughs)
You wake up, then you work together with the sound engineer, or
with the owner of the club, figure out the technical stuff and then you
finish the soundcheck about six o’clock ...
And then we eat sandwiches with cheese and meat! (all guys
Yeah in Germany the food is a terrible thing, the catering is
very... (looks digusted) You now we are from Italy ;) We
don’t understand the meaning of bread with cheese only...
We thought to find some hamburgers in Hamburg O.o
10) Is there any
you have on tour with you that should never be missed!!
(all the guys
began to talk very fast in italian.. sorry
can’t translate that!!)
Ah I loose everything on Tour... (La Nuit explains to him in
italian that this was not the question) ahhhhhhhhhhh!! Make up!!
Wet toilet paper!! Very important if you travel from Italy to
foreign countrys.. you never use it, I can’t understand that.
It‘s the most important thing on toilets!! ( giggeling all
