Part 2 is a continuation of the interview with Louis C. Oberlander, keyboardist with The Jeremy Days. If you're not from Germany you may not have heard of the band, but their music is Brit-pop influenced, and they were one of the bands that MTV Europe, where I worked, pushed. They reached number 11 in the German charts in 1898 with Brand New Toy, and their first album reached number 18. For the next few years they remained successful in Germany, but their last album of that period, Punk by Numbers, flopped and the band pretty much went their separate ways. Today, without Christoph Kaiser, their lineup still includes Dirk Darmstaedter, Louis C. Oberlander, Jörn-Christof Heilbut, and Stefan Rager, and they are back on the German charts with their 6th album Beauty in Broken, twenty-seven years after their last album, and 33 years after their first eponymous album. This is the second and final part of his interview.
