Interview with Die Wilde Jagd
A few months ago, in the middle of May on a Saturday night, a phantasmal, dreadful group of hunters on horses arrived from the netherworld to Belgrade. Under the red lights of 20/44’s penetralia the Die Wilde Jagd (The Wild Hunt) story was played. Of course it’s just a German folk myth that Ralf Beck and Sebastian Lee Phillip used for their band name, but surely it’s connected with the music they play. Some people call it Krautrock, a monotonous playing of guitar loops, drums, machines and synthesizers built to elegant lunacy.
