Florian Horwath - Golden Teeth
Florian Horwath with Jens Jansson and David Birde
"jens & david in full effect.. or this is what happens when you meet a sofa late at night in lustenau, a funny town, very far on the eastern outskirts of austria and very close to switzerland. we were guided to a bizarre övergiven former goa hideout, with a huge “anything goes” playground yard, circus tents, an enormous wood carved phallus & a massive soundsystem. our tour-soundmaestro jeff playing hardcore old skool techno house tunes from his hometown chicago. by the way. we were the only people there. feature dance craze movie to come"
We wonder: do we need to worry? Anything goes? Fire? Sofa? Dance craze movie? Bizarre övergiven former goa hideout? Any guesses?

Florian, Jens Jansson and David Birde are up for it. The stage is bathing in red light when the trio, enters, clapping a rhythm with their hands. Suddenly the band explodes in the loudest noise just to, the next second, play so silent that you could hear the bartender whisper. At some point David even unplugs his electric guitar to play it like an acoustic.
The crowd is focused; no one moves no one breathe. Florian is singing like an angel. Jens is making strange sounds with his cymbals and it’s all just beautiful. After the gig Sunday is Monday and the cabdriver who is driving me back to the hotel looks confused when I sing “When the light came around” loud in his car.
Vielen dank for a great evening in Hamburg, I’m stoked for life!
Funny enough, New David was signed to Junk after playing his “Lazybird” on an acoustic guitar just moments before he went on stage to play with Magnus Börjeson, Jens Jansson & David Birde. This EP was the result of New David playing Kraftwerk songs on a piano AFTER a gig. It sounded so great that we said: Let’s make an EP – NOW. Here it is. We think you will enjoy this one as much as we do.
New David has recorded SIX CLASSIC KRAFTWERK SONGS, with only a piano, a girl playing glockenspiel, and a famous singer standing next to him, whistling. In this podcast, New David explains all about the idea & the new EP. You will also hear excerpts from the songs Autobahn, Computer Love, Expo 2000, Neon Lights, Radioland & The Model.
