My first Kaizers concert… and totally by accident. =;-) Before that day I had never heard the name Kaizers Orchestra and to be honest – what the program said about them didn’t sound very promising. But we were there pretty early and wanted to be in the first row for Readymade and Sportfreunde Stiller (well, I’m too old not to stand in the first row… *g*), so we had to pass our time in front of the stage. And in the early afternoon that was really really hard… *sigh* Well, at some point we were bored to death and went for a walk, there was nobody in a 10-meter-radius of the stage anyway (except for us, of course… *g*). When we came back some minutes later, this was totally different! A crowd of cheering people in front of the stage, extraordinarily handsome men on stage that were singing resp. playing strange songs in an incomprehendable language and pounding wildly at oil barrels…
It didn’t take but a few minutes until we joined the excitedly dancing people in front of the stage. Until this day I don’t have the slighest idea how a band can manage to get people totally excited in such short time, but anyway it doesn’t matter at all – without even knowing who _was_ that band there before us, we were screaming “hallelujah” and “save me Kaizer” and were cheering at command.
I don’t have any idea which songs Kaizers played at that concert, I mean, how could I – I didn’t know them at all at that time. I just know they were terrific, and they were the first and in a way the only band of the festival that got me excited so strongly and so easily. Sadly I didn’t buy a CD at that time, but I had come to know the name which led me to download some of their songs some time later. And I recognized them at once – which doesn’t happen to me very often, normally I forget songs at once. But if I remember a song after hearing it only once, it means that the band is awesome!
