Sabina explains what had happened in between the two albums: It definitely was a great leap forward for us.
We learned a lot in between making the two albums. With Uli Kusch an outstandingly talented drummer had joined us. He and Andy formed a perfect team. Both had decided to devote their lives completely to music, and they really spent all their days rehearsing and writing songs. Now we knew what we had to holy moses finished with the dogs attention to when writing new songs, and we all pushed one another to give our very best. One reason the sound turned out so much better is that Andy and Uli were so extremely tight in their guitar playing.
They had such a great influence on my own development; I felt so much freer, my soul felt so liberated because I could let off steam in the music we made. I continued working to keep the load off Uli and Andy, and they spent the day making music, quitting both work and university. I used to join them in the evenings. Andy got into recording stuff and started to build his own studio at home and in the rehearsal room.
In how far can the great differences between the first two outputs be attributed to the changes in the line-up? He could not give as much for Holy Moses as Uli and Andy did, and so he decided to leave the band; he felt that he had different priorities, and that he could not devote his life to music as the other two did. He had been taking care of everything, the booking, making contacts, everything… he gave me his folders with all his contacts, and now I was responsible for keeping everything going.
That was a difficult task for me, but then I have always been a person who needs difficult tasks, and I tried to do my best. Now we needed a replacement, and therefore called our producer and our record company. Our producer knew Andre from the band he had in the Ruhr Area and he came in and filled the bass position. Shortly before, we played a show somewhere in southern Germany where I ripped my diaphragm while I was singing. Our crew looked after me while I was at home.
Andy and Uli had already gone into the studio and I followed later. This time we had more studio time and I could spent one whole day on each song.
Then one day Peavy from Rage suddenly appeared in the studio. Holy moses finished with the dogs had hired him as my coach. Peavy helped me a lot with developing my style and technique and he showed me how to bring some variety into my vocals. Pressure can be something very positive, the positive impulse to give everything when doing what you do; also, to take satisfaction from your achievements.
We were really relaxed when we started recording, because we had the opportunity to do exactly what we wanted to do. He observed very closely what the producer was doing, he tried to understand everything that was behind it. He started building up his own studio, though in very small steps, as the equipment was very expensive in those days.
But within the bounds holy moses finished with the dogs our possibilities, he could realise the first steps at home and in our rehearsal room. Sabina confirms: Nobody is forced to listen to Holy Moses! To be honest, I still cannot wrap my head around what we started back then — a friend of mine who I only got to know a year ago told me last weekend how he saw us play in the Markthalle in Hamburg in and that he holy moses finished with the dogs the venue when we were playing the title track of the album.
He was blown away by what he saw and by all the memories it called forth in him. It feels so wicked that we were able to create something that had such a long-lasting impact on the scene. After all, this album was the kick-off for a world-wide career. Sabina again: We finally got out of Aachen and got to see a bit of the world, even if it was only a tour through Germany; but playing the famous Markthalle and other legendary venues was new for us.
We also had some requests for shows abroad, and we first had to learn to handle this new situation. It really took up a lot of time and it was all very demanding — I personally got into a heavy conflict between my day job and my live as the Holy Moses vocalist.
New people were approaching us and tried to tell us what goals we should set holy moses finished with the dogs. Some of them actually holy moses finished with the dogs in us.
We jumped at all the opportunities we were given because it all sounded so exciting. In the meantime we had made friends with a couple of other bands, and so we started looking for a bigger record company. I feel a special love for this album, it is my personal memorial of a new found freedom and light-heartedness. Current of Death is my all-time-favourite song! Uli had the key to the door, but the gate to the backyard was locked. So he and Andy had to climb over it.
I am so glad that I got the chance to release this record — a big thanks goes out to Uli and Andy for the great times we had and of course to everyone who was involved in making elephant man real badman record, or who supported us — and most important of all: Holy Moses: High Roller Records.
