stefanie is an actress, a performer and a friend who writes her own music. i have been telling this before: if she’s performing, having an act or simply playing the ukulele in front of a crowd – it will melt into one thing and become pretty entertaining.
i dont remember where i have met stefanie for the first time. probably at the theobald flat – the breeding place for (queer) feminist artists and intellectuals. and it must have been her show with beidl (her band at that time) where i have seen stefanie perform for the very first time. they opened up a show for ilsebill who had just released their 7″ on fettkakao. i was impressed. what an act! and her friends on stage had these big penises made out of… what was that?pap maché? dont know.
i think it took a year until i’ve seen stefanie doing the ukulele thing. it was a birhday party at elektro gönner. plaided did a short set, we did a few songs with the BHCB and stefanie was playing some songs with veronika and julia from plaided. it was so good. especially iko iko they did together.
i cant even remember when i asked stefanie to do s/t on fkk. must have been in between our trips to various places. i saw her play weddings and parent’s birthday parties. saw her perform at the academy and on a burlesque show… and missed her very important play at the kosmos theater this winter. the one the CD is .. well embedded in. difficulties you might get being an artist.
