Otto interviews Astrid [Originally published on The Scottsman]

They’re coming back with a new show!

If you saw them at the 2012 Right Royal Cabaret Fest you’ll be stoked to know the siblings are bringing a different show back to close the arts festival with an almighty bang!

Astrid and Otto, orphaned as kids when Astrid was 12 and Otto was 9, the brother and sister duo found shelter in a Berlin squat and never rockin’ well looked back.

A Die Roten Punkte gig is a wild, rock ‘n’ roll cabaret ride, full of hilarious, truly catchy and award winning pop songs, constantly interrupted by the squabbling of the dysfunctional siblings.

Described as “a lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between the B52s, Kraftwerk and early Ramones”, Die Roten Punkte are truly one of a kind. Astrid’s avant-garde style and legendary antics inspire both reverence and fear, while Otto’s dynamic stage presence brings to mind a whirling dervish on meth.

Die Roten Punkte are one of the most irreverent and funny acts you are ever likely to
see. Don’t miss this show which has sold out in Edinburgh, New York, Sydney, Montreal and Dublin!

WARNING: damn good music with some swearing.
