Play Dead

Schmieds Puls

Schmieds Puls haven’t even started to perform when an elderly lady shouts out of a window facing Karlsplatz: “Can’t you play somewhere else?” Singer and guitarist Mira Lu Kovacs replies apologetically: “I am sorry, we can’t. But it will only take 15 minutes. And the music is nice …” So when the Viennese trio goes for an inspired take of “Play Dead”, the annoyed lady closes her window. Her loss! The city has been nagged by heat and now in the early evening hours there’s finally a fresh breeze coming up. The change of atmosphere and the intensity of the performance gives us the chills. Once Schmieds Puls have packed their instruments, the police shows up. Seems like someone did not enjoy the music …
