On stage, he’s a huge, looming presence, moody and subdued, playingg some incredibly loud music. Off it, Oliver Ackermann was an absolute treat, offering me and James some drinks before the interview. Not only that, we spent much of the time between bands chatting to us too, ethusiastically discussing the (ludicrously good) support bands. It wasn’t like it was always us approaching him, either – possibly after a few more beers, hepractically ambushed us from behind as we went to go outside. He even took a request from James to play the opening track from their debut. A genuine pleasure to meet.
Anyway, the interview is up over at TLOBF, so head on over there to read it:
