Former Ghosts

Apart from the Donaufestival, the small town of Krems isn’t really a popcultural hotspot. Well, there are quite a lot of students, but their presence doesn’t really show in the daily (and nightly) life of Krems. So, even though we are exploring the city together with the US-based electronic synth-pop band Former Ghosts – Freddy Rupperts new project, after he has already performed as „This Song Is A Mess But So Am I“ – for one and a half hours, there is not much interaction with locals. During the first song („Dream“), that was shot in a covered staircase, some people timidly getting closer, but when they realize that they might not get past the band without attracting attention (of the band or the camera or both), they just turn around and look for another way. People in bigger, more crowded cities would probably have walked straight through the scene. For „New Orleans“ the two guys choose the church as a location after some discussion, with a Jesus Christ statue witnessing their intense performance. On the way back, we stop in the middle of the football ground nearby the venue, just on the kick-off point. They set up their gear once more for an impressive version of „The Days Will Get Long Again“ to complete our little, utterly enjoyable afternoon city walk.
