My Favourite Records mit Gary Powell (The Libertines)

Gary Powell war in gewisser Weise immer das Herz der Libertines. Wenn vor ihm die Egos clashten, hämmerte Powell breit grinsend auf seine Drums ein und überstand den Doherty-Barat-Zirkus gesund, drogen- und depressionsfrei. Dass der gute Mann bereits 42 Jahre alt ist, mag man gar nicht glauben!

Heute abend legt Gary Powell im White Trash in Berlin auf.

* YOUR FAVOURITE SONG BY PETE DOHERTY?

couldn’t tell ya that. am still waiting for him to blow my socks off with something truly amazing.

* YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK ABOUT MUSIC?

leonard bernstein autobiography ‚lenny‘

folks not into classical music can be as snobbish about the genre, as classical music fans are about popular and alternative music. if you read about lenny you will see a man that loved all music and was no different to folks today, drinking and playing music all nite long! true legendary genius of the people!

* YOUR FAVOURITE FILM ABOUT MUSIC?

footloose

got to be foot loose with kevin bacon. let the kids rock – let the kids dance! ok, lest we forget MC5 A TRUE TESTIMONIAL. am looking forward to seeing the documentary about a tribe called quest as well.

mc5

got to be the jam! paul weller was something special and having had the opportunity to share a stage with him a few times i gotta show my allegiance baby!!!

* THE MOST OVERRATED BAND/ARTIST?

the libertines.

* YOUR FAVOURITE SONG BY A GERMAN ARTIST/BAND?

kraftwerk

i hope this does not come across as too obvious but i gotta go with – KRAFTWERK – AUTOBAHN. the world can not forget the importance of this band as innovators of electronica. without karaftwerk we would not have electro hip hop, romantic pop, deep house, acid jazz, trance – and electro indie and dub step to name but a few. true innovators and great song writers!

* YOUR FAVOURITE RECORD OF ALL TIME?

i haven’t written it yet…
