      Just stumbled over an old clip from our 2010 Herzberg rehearsals – spot on a still very young Ingvald…

            Yes very cool indeed! Johhnny, can you tell a little bit more? What this an impro thing? What do you play? Who are the other guys?

              Session happened just before we opened Burg Herzberg Festival 2011. I joined Freak City Band as flute and sax player only in 2010 – the band had been active a few years before. A core of 5 or 6 people who rented an old house with an extra rehearsal room from the festival landowner and organised things plus 6-10 musicians from the festival crowd. I don’t know all of them by real name – lot of them used nicknames. I was introduced by Paul Pott from “Space Invaders”, “Hausfrauen of Death”, Robb & Pott who however left the band the year before.
              A diehard MP fan, he had been a central figure in bringing Motorpsycho to Herzberg festival for the first time in 2008.
              Ingvald was one of two drummers, we had a regular bass player, Nafi on selectric sitar-guitar and occasional bass and a number of other people involved. Kind of band leader and organiser was Zoppo, who played guitar (Herzberg’s Stephen Stills, imho) and who uploaded the videos on youtube.

              This was Freak City Band named after the central camping and partying area on Burg Herzberg’s festival ground, which opened the festival on Thursday afternoon for a few years, until it all fell down in the mud chaos of 2012 and the aftermath.

              We just rehearsed a few times the day before the gig – some people even just joined on stage. Besides I was a specialist in de-tuning my sax, so it all came out a little bit shaky in the recordings. Great fun and response on stage though!
