Ever wondered what it would sound like if Jonathan Richman and Thurston Moore moved to Hawaii and opened a tiki bar? Listen to The DeLorean Rocket Experience and find out.
indieBerlin: How did you come up with the name The DeLorean Rocket Experience?
The DeLorean Rocket Experience: We were hanging out in Martin’s apartment and we decided to start a band and started thinking about names initially picking The DeLoreans, as a reference to the movie “Back to the Future” but then found out it was taken so we expanded to our current name.
indieBerlin: How does the songwriting process work for your band?
Domenica: Sometimes, Martin and I write songs beforehand and work on them with our guitars and then add the drums later or we just come up with something awesome in the rehearsal room.
indieBerlin: If you had to describe your music to a deaf person, what would you say?
The DeLorean Rocket Experience: We wouldn’t say anything because they wouldn’t hear us but we would draw a fun day on the beach.
indieBerlin: If your music was a movie, which genre would it be in?
Martin: It would be in any Quentin Tarantino movie.
indieBerlin: Tell us a secret about yourself.
The DeLorean Rocket Experience: Even though we define ourselves as a surf rock band… None of us really owns a surfboard.
indieBerlin: Where do you get your inspiration from?
Domenica: From people we talk to on the streets, traveling and popular culture such as Star Wars and Pokemon.
indieBerlin: What was your biggest stage fuck-up?
Marco: During the first 10 seconds of one of our show my drumstick got caught in the crash and flew out of my hands. Luckily enough I was able to pick it back up soon after.
indieBerlin: What was the nicest compliment you ever got?
Martin: My mum said we looked pretty cute on stage with our little Hawaiian shirts.
indieBerlin: How do you feel about covering a song?
The DeLorean Rocket Experience: We would happily cover most songs but always with a sprinkle of surf.
indieBerlin: How do you think the audience in Berlin is different to the audience in Palma de Mallorca?
Martin: In Berlin, they have longer hair.
