This is a collection of interviews I have written for different
of them are in German language.
I have written for a few for a couple of music magazines/fanzines.
when I was a student I was quite productive and did about two interviews per
bands I was interested in :-)
The ENTRY was a fanzine
was released every two months with about 2,000 copies that were sold at clubs,
concerts and a
few record stores. It was mainly read by fans/bands/labels that were somehow
related to the
Electro/Wave/Goth/Industrial scene. The view that the editors had of the scope
of their magazine was somehow
narrower than mine (and I do hope than that of the readers) and they did not
allow me to do an
interview with Sven Väth and so I left the magazine. (BTW: only two more
of the ENTRY were released I wasn't involved in, but they've got a nice homepage
The BODYSTYLER was also a fanzine related to the Electro/Wave/Goth/Industrial
scene--the great thing
about it was they took almost nothing too seriously: neither the scene nor
themselves or the bands.
As the scope of the BODYSTYLER changed over the years the editors decided to do
a proper music magazine
distributed all over Germany. To account for the change of the content the
magazine changed its name
to TEXTUNDTON. Although I always thought that BODYSTYLER was a great name
(because the magazine
shaped not only your intellect but also your body ;-)) this was the right thing
to do, in my opinion.
Unfortunately, it had not the success it deserved...
All interviews were done by me (Z) except the Welle:Erdball interview which was written by
Andreas Davids (with support from me) and a couple of interviews I did together with
Reiner Rasche (2xR or R.I.R.). Frederik von Ameln (f.) supported me for the
