Only Thomas himself seemed bugged that they needed a second attempt to start the beautiful tune. Der Teufel Founded in as a five-piece avant-garde collective, the line-up and the sound of DAF were simultaneously reduced to a minimum soon.
Quite fittingly for the godfathers of minimalism, the hangar stage looked pretty empty when DAF entered the scene. But even when most of their songs are 35 years old, or even more, they still sound fresh and relevant. Minimalism prevents aging, apparently. And after all there's a plethora of young bands who follow DAF in their footsteps, especially when you look to Sweden and East Germany.
The minimal, hypnotic, tribal and sequenced Electro sound is hip again and DAF's gig at the M'era Luna demonstrated who are the true masters and inventors of it! Their hard-core fans in the front rows enjoyed a one-hour-long dark pop show. As usual, the vocalists Chris Pohl and Ulrike Goldmann brought along their dance troupe to put on a show. Personally, I find that sometimes the various accents of international acts that sing in English and aren't native speakers adds some exotic spice, individuality and even musicality to their sound - but other times, not so much, unfortunately.
While the nunnery was undressing and dancing in the background or around the musicians, grinning Lukas at the keys had a hell of a time sharing his joy of playing live and also the drummer and the guitarist did a great job. Steffen animated the crowd to sing the chorus in turns and all had a great time. AND ONE are still big in Germany, even though their finest days are behind them to some, and as the final act at the main stage they certainly had a pretty impressive crowd in front of them.
The band was dressed all in black while the stage was covered all in white, including the drum pads and keyboard racks. Nice to see an actual stage design, last time I saw them headlining a festival they had nothing but a text-only ad for the next show in Comic Sans font as a backdrop. Steve Naghavi is known for being ironic and eloquent as much as being a little narcissistic and full of himself at times.
This night the witty entertainer won over, even though he couldn't stop poking fun at his audience for spending an entire weekend in mud and rain, but you certainly have to give him credit that he's a born entertainer.
