When longing screams and madness drives... Captain Panda are usually not far away. They float around in German-speaking waters, somewhere between punk and (of course extremely hard) pop. Musically both catchy and rough, they always balance on the narrow edge between energy and melody. A spiky, red carpet for their protagonists, who stumble across their path en masse in their homeland, the picturesque Ruhr area. Because lyrically everything revolves around the subject of people - observing, descriptive, more diary than photo album. It's about leaving, losing and man's favorite hobby - at the end of a dead end, always running flat out against the wall. And that's exactly where KP are ready with the camera or paper and pen. Incidentally, they have never been to Shanghai.
