Oliver Ackermann is back!
This is the first time I have seen Oliver Ackermann in person for maybe six years. As you will recall from our DIYfreqs episode with Oliver, we met a few years before but I wasn’t on that shoot in NYC so we only emailed, while my buddy Ted took care of producing that movie.
This time out, I caught up with Oliver on tour with his band A Place to Bury Strangers. Just look at all the cables and pedals and gear they use! In this scene, Oliver is setting up his old 4-track tape deck to record himself and the audience during the show and then play it back over the PA. You have to witness it live to see what I mean. Loud, noisy and wonderful.
FreqsFact: Kai was actually away on a shoot in the USA and could not be here for this shoot which was a bummer as he is arguably the bigger APTBS fan. However, being the good friend that I am, I picked him up a tshirt…You’re welcome, Friend!
