The music of LAY DE FEAR took place in a former monastery, the theatre "Akademie Reuschberg".
We used to meet just three times a year for long trip out weekends. Additional to the three founders, there sometimes were 15 people around who shared our musical vision, among them Steffi and Marcus and many others.
In autumn 1993 we did our first live gig to support Damo Suzuki at the Asta Fest, FH Frankfurt.
Our influences were groups like CAN, Velvet Underground and Nine Inch Nails. The Music happened very spontaneous, out of the moment we were doing it, and oscillated between industrial, toy-keyboard-avantgarde-schlager, meditation, nonsense and free kraut rock textures.
Although after four years the project fell apart in 1996, it had a deep impact on us, it truly can be said that this experience changed our lives. Stolle & Member continued this trip as a duo and since then devotedly built this constantly changing universe until now, and promise to
walk that road further on and on and on.....
This, now, is a look in our best gig ever, at the ZENTRUM Offenbach on April the 30th 1994.
This post was inspired by homemade lofi psych, who posted a dedication to Lay De Fear, a live track from the band Orange.
