‘We’re a super group’ – Conquering the ‘Himalayan’ with the Band of Skulls

Southampton three-piece Band of Skulls just recently released their third studio album ‘Himalayan.’ As the title already suggests it allows its listeners to climb a mountain full of diverse walls of sound. ‘Himalayan’ makes us fly above clouds and lets us take a deep breath of the rough and pure air that is Rock’n’Roll. Last Sunday I met Russell, Matt and Emma for an interview I did for Kanal C, our student’s radio. Tonight you’ll have the chance to listen to the band talking about their new album, so don’t miss it (93,4 FM or online via kanal-c.net). For eMAG I’ve decided to publish the full interview for you to look it up and re-read it as often as you want to.

If you are interested in voluntary work and like to make a difference for a child’s life, then you should join the charitable organisation “Studenten bilden Schüler e.V.”. In an interview with the head of the organisation I got to know about the valuable work the members of the organisation are doing.

A vegetarian’s trip to Ireland – Impressions of my latest trip to Dublin

I just love Ireland! I love Irish music, the pubs, Gaelic culture and I’m a big fan of both Guinness and Jameson, but on every trip to this wonderful island one thing is a bit harder than in Germany: My vegetarianism. My latest trip to Dublin with some non-vegetarian friends provided some funny situations.

Carnival, Bolivian-Style

Eye-witness account from an Augsburg student

To be honest, I can’t really say I’m a big fan of the so-called fifth season. The over-the-top hilarity, publicly-accepted drunkenness and fondness for ridiculous songs which a German suppresses for the rest of the year is released over the course of one week, which strikes me as being a bit unhealthy. If you know what I mean, imagine the same situation, but ten times more intense, and in Bolivia… Continue reading
