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!“

„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.
Ich weiß noch, dass sich irgendwann eine Mail im Posteingang befand. Absender: Felix. Von Flix Records. Der mich fragte, ob ich denn ein Interview mit der Band The Static Age machen möchte, wenn diese in Hamburg spielen. Leider hatte ich an diesem Tag schon etwas anderes vor, sodass ich ihm absagen musste. Stattdessen schlug ich Felix vor, dass er doch ein paar Fragen beantworten könnte. Über das Label. Über seine Anfänge. Und was soll ich sagen? Er war sofort einverstanden! Vielen lieben Dank für´s Beantworten, Felix! Und hier das Ergebnis:
