Timo and David from Panik went to our office a few days after the concert at the Trabendo. The occasion to talk about a date that will stay in their minds.

What is the first memory you have when i talk about your last show at the Trabendo?
T : My stage-diving was memorable! I’ve filmed it for the first time. Jump in the crowd with my camera was amazing.
D : From the stage, yes it was really funny (laughs). We also did something we’ve never done before : a battle in Detroit rappers style, between DJ and guitare! It was really spontaneous and cool.
T : I also remember the fact that many people came from different countries. Some of them got tatoos of my lyrics, it’s unbelievable!
D : True! There was a swedish fan who tatooed an extract of Vorbei. It was beautiful and impressive.

It was a real event for all Panik fans over Europe. How did you feel when you went on stage?
D : We were feeling so good! In fact, this time we organised everything on our own, what is another consequence of our split from our old management, six months ago. So i’ve organised everything. I’ve never did it before. Until Saturday night, when we were finally going on stage, i was over excited. Especially because everything went perfectly well. This proove us we can do beautiful things without any help.

This concert wasn’t part of a tour, but a special event. How did you prepare it?
D : It was quite funny because we had no rehearsal room anymore. So we rent the rehearsal room of a friend of me, and we trained only a few days before the show. Honnestly, we didn’t play this year, so once all together, we had to go through the songs again. And furthermore, we were playing with a new bassist (André from Destination Anywhere, the preband). In fact, he knew the songs better than us because he just learned them (laughs), and we were like “shit, we can’t play our own songs” (laughs). But at the end, we just repeated the set a few times and everything was back. It’s like swimming, you learn and never forget.
T : It was the same with the lyrics. I was sometimes talking between the songs to have time to remember the next lyrics. (laughs) But we realise it’s in us.

I guess you wanted this show to be unforgettable...
T : Definitely. There are some songs we normaly don’t play that were on the setlist this time.
D : And there was this song with Steven! Steven was our bassist in 2003 when we started. He’s a good friend of mine, and he came to me asking if he could play for out last show. Of course i said yes, and we’ve played this old song “neonazi” that Timo and I play on the same guitare! It’s really funny to see. (laughs) It’s one of the things which made this show really special, even if we didn’t practice it before Saturday !
T : Talking about the setlist, we decided to keep the same we had for the German tour, because it was really working. We just change a bit the order of a few songs.
D : It was also the occasion to play songs of the last album we didn’t play yet. Especially because those songs were moren written to be played live than the songs of the first album.
T : And we’ve played the hip-hop songs a bit more rock live. The crowd was bouncing with so much energy. I think the next songs will be in this style.

What did you feel about playing with your old members, who told yo, a few months ago, they don’t want to go on with Panik?
D : Well..
T : ... The idea came from David, car we had to make a concert for our french fans. There was petitions to which we wanted to answer. And every old members, excepting Linke (bass player) was ok for it, because our french fans diserve it. And our last album wasn’t out there, there was no promotion, but the venue was full. It was awesome.
D : Of course, the relation with the others was a bit strange. On one hand, we’re still disappointed that they don’t want to go on, but on the other hand, we were together for 8 years... That’s how it is.

Did you talk about Panik’s future with them?
D : We just talked about everything else, but that. No. It’s too delicate, a bit like talking to your ex-girlfriend about your old relationship. (laughs)

What about Panik’s new projects?
T : We’re actually working on new songs, and i regularely shoot short movies.
D : Now the goal is to link music and videos. (laughs)


Live Panik + Destination Anywhere

Torned between the sadness of their official split, and the happiness of seing them all together for the last time, the french audience finally see its favorite german band full of energy!
From Siegen, David’s friends open the show with a set surprisingly fresh. Destination Anywhere’s Ska-punk style overflows with energy! 22-years-old david Conrad, blond singer, is surprised by the impact of his music on the audience who answer him everytime he talks. Later, we found again André, bass player, with Panik. Tonight he’s playing at Linke’s place, only member missing from the original band, known before 2009 as Nevada Tan. From the first song, teh german band shows an olympic energy. And is really willing to forget the inner tensions of the band to give pleasure to the fans. Timo is rapping unbelievable good while crossing the venue, and meanwhile Frank is singing really good, especially on Wollt Nur Wissen. David stay discrete in his corner, as usual, playing nice guitare solos and making the backvoices. He’s also making one of the best moment of the show with in piano solo in introduction to Kinder. On their side, Juri and André are making a good rythmic. And let’s not forget Jan, DJ, who won the improvised battle between scratches and guitare! Happy to share this moment with his audience, the band thanks them a lot. Danke schön, Bitte schön !

За съжаление PANIK не са влезли в официалните номинации за  "Best Live Act" на наградите Comet 2010. Групите/певците, които са успяли, са Tokio Hotel, Rammstein, Culcha Candela, Peter Fox и Silbermond.

PANIK трябваше да са в чата на star4kids.at днес. За да не разочароват феновете си, те се появиха на panik-musik.de. Първата част на това, което обсъждаха Тимо, Давид и феновете може да прочетете тук.

Тимо е публикувал нов блог, свързан с предишния (който все още не сме превели). Ставаше въпрос да дадете линкове на организации, които се занимават с помощ на деца, хора в нужда и т.н. и след като се изберат три организации, да се отвори банкова сметка, на която всеки, който желае да  преведе по 1 евро. Тимо моли за мнение как трябва да се изберат организациите.

И накрая, във френкото списание Rock One има кратка статия за PANIK и техния концерт в Париж с коментарите на Давид.

Няколко промени се случиха около myspace страниците на групата. Официалната им myspace страница има нов хеадър, рекламиращ концерта в Париж. Юри е добавил нова музика на своята, а Линке е публикувал нова биографирна информация (споменаваща: "Също така, имах достатъчно късмет да бъда част от немската сrossover банда PANIK в миналото." ), както и няколко снимки. Линке има вече и twitter акаунт. Последвайте го.

Макар и със закъснение, Тимо също потвърди информацията за концерта в Париж като подкрепи идеята на немските фенове за пътуване от Германия до Франция в twitter: "nice :) http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=433605098 &blogId=528926442" & "@xmusik you will arrive from spain? far far away :) im glad to play the concert in paris! :)"

Макар PANIK да не са потвърдили официално концерта в Париж, Давид пише в twitter:
"Für Alle Deutschen, Die Zum PARIS KONZERT Wollen: http://www.firsturl.de/lME2qfI (за всички немци, които искат да присъстват на КОНЦЕРТА в ПАРИЖ: линк).
Официалния форум органзира за феновете пътуване с автобус от Германия до Франция. Повече информация може да откриете на дадения от Давид линк.

P.S. Ако някой има нужда от превода, може да остави коментар. Но засега не мисля да го превеждам, защото за съжаление не късае особено нас :( Същото се отнася и за изненадата, която  www.panik-david.de и немските фенове готвят за рождения ден на Давид.

Според официалния френски PANIK street team, бандата ще изнесе концерт  в Париж на 24 април. Клубът Тrabendo, в който трябва да свирят, също е оповестил датата на сайта си. В съобщението още се казва, че всички с изключение на Линке ще бъдат там. Групата все още не е потвърдила участието.

Бъдещите планове на настоящите и бившите членове на бандата, публикувани на 05.02. на сайта www.faz.net (откъс):

"... Линке напуска. Турнето доставя удоволствие, казва той, политиката на звукозаписните компании обаче не. Тяхното появяване може да се види в албума например, защото някой от звукозаписната компания е поискал това. Човек трябва да се бори, за да спечели, казва Зоненшайн. Линке разбира това, но не иска да продължава: "За да се приключи, когато някой не се чувства добре, тогава трябва самият той да се грижи за себе си." Той ще се опита са си изясни нещата в чужбина. Вернер ще продължи обучението си като химичен технически асистент, Шеве учи от октомври барабани в Бремен, Циеглер има роля във филма "Alles für Lila..."
...Общата им къща в Хамбург е изпразнена. Тук няма да се крещи повече. Бонк и Зоненшайн искат да издадат албум (двамата) тази година, но все още не знаят как и кога. "Но във всички случаи знаем, че това е нашия живот."
