Ez3kieil used to be Ezekiel, after Quentin Tarantino’s character in Pulp Fiction. Going since 1994 albeit with personnel changes, the band are well known for their multi-discipline approach, combining visuals and sound. They’re also very well known for and through their many collaborations including Yann Tiersen. Playing as part of the French line-up at this year’s Fete de la Musique in Kesselhaus, Kulturbrauerei, we caught up with them for a few questions.

Falling back down off the drum riser, and trying to catch the curtains just behind me to not fall. I fell down with the curtains on me. I was 12, and I felt terribly uncomfortable … shame…. don’t.

Don’t stress, it doesn’t mean anything, breathe and action…
