There was a group within the group. I started thinking of them like a rock band. They’d debuted as a three-piece German-Swiss outfit with Christof, Anskar and Sandro arriving at the 3rd Torino-Nice Rally, then picking up Sam along the way. So an established super-group foursome arrived in Edinburgh, seeking inspiration for that difficult second album.
Anskar has to be the lead singer – just see his perfectly colour-coordinated bike set-up. Yet they were a team, greater than the sum of their parts. In harmony, looking out for one another. The driving force of our socialising and the first to get the beers and whisky in.
