I really enjoyed talking to the guys from LDMR. I first met them at last years Twinfest event in Northampton. They had just played to a full house at The Lamplighter, I’ve been to that pub hundreds of times and I’ve never seen it so busy and energetic. I spoke to Arne afterwards and tried to arrange for them to come on the podcast. It was a last minute thing and we couldn’t make it work before they headed back to Germany. They recently came back for a couple of shows so we made sure we got together this time.
The fact these guys are willing to travel for 13 hours each way to play a couple of shows in Northampton not only shows their own dedication and passion for their art, but also the faith they have in Northampton. I think as Northamptonians we can learn a lot form these guys. We have a thriving music scene, we have great musicians and we have plenty of venues too.
LDMR’s music is new and exciting. I have no doubt they’ll go on to greater things so we should be watching bands like these at every opportunity. It also helps that they are nice guys too, they gave me a beer from Germany when I arrived and before I left I was invited to stay at their house for the next Twinfest.
