JP Bommel - RCA, France

We listened to that tape and we were all looking at each other, you know, thinking: “this is wild”, we had never heard anything like that. The record company didn’t have a clue. They said, “you’ve been successful before, so if you want to do it, do it - but this is the budget.” So we had to cut corners everywhere, we built Klaus with no money. But, you know, we had so much fun doing that... it was all of us, you know, calling friends that we knew in the press...and I think that was part of the success, because this was not the media-machine working, it was not the star-system. It was just a bunch of music-lovers, saying we pull out all the stops and make it happen.
