Räuberhöhle

How would you describe your music?

hm, for me it's happy hardcore. a bit bitchy, a bit aggressive, a bit political. garnished with a lot of beeps and bleeps.

What is your role in your band? In the studio? In business or marketing decisions?

i am the boss of the band, the studio, the production and even in my business!

Describe your gear.

well, the most important thing for the live shows is a puppet theater. since i play all instruments in my songs by myself, but being not even able to play keyboard while i sing (genes!!!), i decided it's pretty clever to do a instrumental playback and dance like a crazy horse to it. and sing like a loopy stork.

in the puppet theater the bear and krawallmädchen (me) explain, how to become a popstar! so it's more of a workshop and everybody will learn something. maybe.

Do you think being a woman and a musician is different from being a man and a musician? If so, how? Was there a moment that made a difference clear to you?

yes, i think girls have more problems to make a monkey out of themselves. if you learn since your childhood that you have to be pretty and nice, you must be a freak to go crazy on stage... getting red and sweaty and your make up is going liquid... not very ladylike.

it took me years learning that it's more fun not thinking about this crap and just have fun for myself.

Do you see differences between generations of women musicians?

hm, i just hope girls got inspired by something like the riot grrrls movement (i was) and start their own riot.

Did anyone ever give you any valuable advice about making your way in the music industry? What advice would you give to a woman musician just starting out?

"no, i never had big plans and was surprised when i found out that (some) people even liked it. so it went on and on. my advice is: just DO IT! don't wait for big record companies, booking agencies or whatever. nowadays it's so easy to put out your stuff and book shows for yourself. just use the internet and spread the word. be courageous and adventurous and you will win! play play play!!! <3"

Why did you choose to play the instrument you play?

because no one ever played the stuff i wanted... also i think girls should start learning to take over the instruments! (not just the mics)
