Kissogram

Each year at the end of the summer the Summerize concert night, that stages musicians from Berlin, takes place at Kulturbrauerei. Kissogram have just finished their soundcheck for their late-night show when we meet them for the video shoot. Founded in 1999 as a two-man project by the Germans Jonas Poppe and Sebastian Dassé, the Englishman Joe Dilworth (who is apart from his job as a drummer also working in photography) joined them later on. Our question – “Why is there always an Englishman in German bands?” – leads to a jocular discussion. Germany is doing perfectly well when it comes to electronic music, yet the UK is still the biggest player in the European pop industry. However, the Berlin-based Kissogram have – as a tour support for Franz Ferdinand – already taken the first steps for an international career. Their 2009 record-release “Rubber and Meat” is sophisticatedly more rock and less electronic than at their beginnings (with “If I Had Know This Before” – remixed by DJ Woody – Jonas and Sebastian have once conquered the German club charts). What’s more, they got the humour. After more and more tourist groups have passed by on their organized bike tours, Joe grabs his motorbike and parks it right next to the “Berlin on Bike”-marker.
