...time for a interview...

Interview with the psychedelic rock hero Lorenzo Woodrose, known for Baby Woodrose, Dragontears, On Trial, The Setting Son and Spids Nøgenhat

Sauzipf Rocks 2011  in Austria/Kärnten
Baby Woodrose is a rock band formed in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2001. They take their name from the Argyreia nervosa, a plant commonly known as Hawaiian baby woodrose, which can be used for hallucinogenic effects. 

SH: Baby Woodrose is famous for their amazing live-sound. Live@Gutter Island is sold out for a long time. Isn't the current band constitution the perfect time to record one of your magical concerts?
Lorenzo: Yeah, you might be right about that. We've recorded most of our shows through the years, but we really need a better quality recording to be able to do that. We'll see.

SH: From time to time there are vinyl -re -releases coming out. Do you plan to make a re-release of your record Pandemonica? Or do you now where it's still possible to buy them?
Lorenzo: A re-release of the Pandemonica LP's is not in the plans, but for now they are available for download on my bandcamp site. If you need the vinyls, they sometimes pop up on ebay and discogs and places like that.

SH: Topic Dragontears: According to myspace you finished the project with the third album. Is this definitely the end or can we hope to see some more shows in Germany or Austria?
Lorenzo: There will be no more Dragontears shows. Currently we are touring with that same particular line up as Spids Nøgenhat, playing songs with danish lyrics exclusively.

SH: After the amazing feedback of the gig @ Roskilde you play 3 concerts in denmark. Is there a chance you will extend your trip to middle-europe or do we have to get planetickets? Or maybe you're gonna be at next year's DUNA JAM?
Lorenzo: I don't think so, no - sorry! We only wanna do a few shows every year in this setting. But Baby Woodrose are available for whatever.

SH: Which was your first guitar and which amp was hooked to it?
Lorenzo: My first acoustic was a Levin 12 string, my first electric was my Vox Teardrop. My first amp was a 15W transistor amp of the brand Dane.

SH: Do you remember the first record you owned? If yes, can you still listen to it without feeling ashamed?
Lorenzo: I've been asked this question many times and the truth is I'm not sure, but I think it might have been Kraftwerk's Mensch Machine. I could still listen to that yeah. I also owned a copy of U2 War around the same time though, which is another case. Another contender would be the first album by Trio, Dadada. I have revisited that recently and quite liked it.

SH: Which type of music or band do you think is so bad that it should be prohibited?
Lorenzo: Lady Gaga?

SH: What moment or concert do you think was the highlight of your rockcareer until now?
Lorenzo: I don't know. I live in the moment, so right now?

SH: Chuck Norris or Mc Gyver?
Lorenzo: Who are these people?

SH: Your favourite food?
Lorenzo: I'm very fond of Mexican. Chimichangas, Burritos, that sort of thing.

SH: Last and most important question: Which advice can you give all the young and unknown singers/songwriters out there?
Lorenzo: Sing your song.
