As a proud supporter of the tour backing their new album “Forever,” Iceland Express has a quick talk with Biggi Veira of GusGus.
GusGus started in 1995 as a twelve-person experiment in sight, sound, and experience. Since then, the lineup has been streamlined and the focus has shifted to creating the kind of music that turns dance halls into writhing masses of human celebration.
One thing that has remained unchanged is the man behind the production, Biggi Veira. With an athletically slender build, a wicked sense of humor, and an energetic self-confidence that would make Sir Richard Branson jealous, it’s easy to see why he continues to be a driving force behind this dynamic band.
How’s the tour? Everyone surviving?
The Schnitzel on the Highway Tour goes on. All the travel is no problem, we’re veteran partiers. I love traveling. There are so many great places in Europe and the crowds have been amazing. Germany is one of the coolest places right now… (Slyly) I love Germany.
What is the reaction to “Forever?”
Great. Really great. The concerts have been very cool… all night insanity and people dancing all over the place. Do you know why? Because we put a lot of work and our souls into those beats (laughs)!
How do you keep up the pace?
This is what we love to do. When you are doing something that you love it’s easy. To be honest, music is my egocentric fetish. It gives me bliss. The fact that others want to take part is a bonus.
