Noopinion: Sheep noses taste good
Once upon a time there were four lads who set out from their familiar surroundings in the very south of Germany to rock the Panda. NOOPINION are those very lads and one of the first western punk bands who were allowed to play in the People´s Republic of China.

Second guitarist and master of mayhem Patrik “Barney Gumble” Fischer spills the beans about the history of the band, their new record, of course the China trip and finally he even wants to give you some presents. So you have to read on! >> more/mehr

Bassist Daniel and guitarist Mark of NOTHING MORE sat down with me in their cozy tourbus to have a chat about their band and the current tour with headliner HALESTORM, as soundcheck was going on in the venue and the backstage area had been too crowded.
Having not really known the band before, I did not only find my love for their music on this day, but also learned to enjoy the humor and kindness of the people behind this music. >> more/mehr
