Bodi Bill

Our offstage session with Berlin-based Bodi Bill might not have taken place in such an unhindered manner if it had happened a few weeks later. Then the location – Museumsquartier (MQ) – became subject of a huge debate on how to define and use public space, namely if people should be allowed to drink self-brought alcoholic drinks and make music within the MQ area. At first, rules were tightened, but after some protests softened again. Anyway, despite the exposed location high above the MQ square and next to the greyish cube that houses the Museum of Modern Arts nobody comes to interrupt Bodi Bill’s inspired performance of their crowd-favourite “Very Small” and the brand new song “Garden Dress”. Except the friendly old lady, who gets out of the elevator, sees band and camera and jokes about her dog wanting to be the star of the video. Initially, we intended to film the session at Donaukanal, but singer Fabian’s pollen allergy made us leave there and head to this entirely blossomless steel-and-concrete-space, that makes a nice contrast to Bodi Bill’s crackling, organic electronic sounds and warm melodies. And their multicoloured clothes stand out even more!
