Wer ich bin? Manchmal weiß ich darauf echt keine richtige Antwort. „Hallo! Ich bin Jasmin. Ich mache dies & das. Und überhaupt.“ Aber das ist nur ein harmloses Kratzen an der Oberfläche. Manchmal ist man dann ja schon froh darüber, wenn sich der Gegenüber noch den Namen merken kann. Ich komme mir gerade vor wie Forrest Gump. Mit einem kleinen Koffer an meiner Seite. Sitzend auf einer Bank. Wartend. Und dann gesellen sich fremde Menschen zu mir. Und ich erzähle ihnen etwas. Ob sie es nun hören wollen oder nicht.
Ich bin Jasmin. Ja, an diesem Punkt waren wir schon. Mitte zwanzig. Ich denke oft zurück & frage mich: Wo ist eigentlich die Zeit geblieben? Die Jugend? Und dann überkommt mich das Gefühl, dass ich alles verschlafen habe in meinem bisherigen Leben. Dieses „Eigentlich habe ich nichts erlebt.“ Ding. Ich habe nichts erreicht.
Felix (Flix Records): „When I was 17 or 18 years old I was into a band called The Explosion who mixed Hardcore with poppy Punkrock music and a great aesthetics when it came to album artwork and merchandise. The jazz around the band was interesting to me and so I came across Dave Hause when he filled in for the band right after Sam Cave left the band. Sam was responsible for the „Flash Flash Flash“ album and I was bummed that he left the band. However, I checked out Dave’s other bands like The Curse and Paint It Black later and thought they were all amazing. These were the bands that got me to Hardcore acts like Kid Dynamite.
When The Loved Ones first CD came out on Fat Wreck I was excited to see that Dave is not only a good song writer but can actually write hit songs like „Jane“. I met Dave for the first time last year in Stuttgart and was happy to work with him on a small 7 Inch project with his solo project & The Cobra Skulls for my label Flix Records. Dave was on so many great tours, festivals and released so many fantastic records on every god label out there in 2012 so I hope that 2013 will be his year. He deserves it!“

North Alone about Dave Hause: „I play a Gibson J45 which is called „The workhorse“. This name would also be perfect for Dave. Beside the great songs he’s writing and the powerful shows he’s playing he is a very nice guy without any rock star attitude. I met him supporting him at one of the solo shows during the Gaslight Anthem tour and he gave me very much respect for being a musician like him and not like being just a small unknown support act. „

Frank Turner about Dave Hause: „I met Dave when I was on tour with Gaslight in the USA and he was playing with The Loved Ones. We became firm friends. He’s something of a maniac, very good at causing trouble if he puts his mind to it. But he’s a sweetheard, and a wise man.“

„Don’t be nervous! It’s just a conversation.“ And I thought: „Yes, that’s true, Mr. Hause! But my problem is: It will be my first interview- in English!“ With Dave Hause from The Loved Ones! I mean..he is an amazing musician and his songs mean a lot to me! Especially „C’mon kid„. Last year I’ve seen 17 of his concerts and each one of them was full of emotions, fun, energy and goose bumps. He is a perfect entertainer- not only on stage. He really loves what he does. A talented person, who deserves all the best! In the last year he was like the Road Runner: faster than anyone else! There were lots of solo- and supportshows for The Gaslight Anthem, Laure Jane Grace or The Bouncing souls. Life on the fast lane.
