Episode 2: A talk with Cornelius Althammer of Ahab

This is the second episode of Feeding on Wind, a podcast on art and music outside of the mainstream presented by Mark Lindhout.

Being in a band is a lot of work. Let alone being in five bands!

How Cornelius does it, what keeps him going, what annoys him, these are the core subjects we cover in this episode. Ranging from vaccinations and the Justin Bieber fanbase, to drinking whiskey sours with bankers, we talk our way through Cornelius’ musical career and cover a surprising variety of topics.

There’s a ton of music in this episode —some of which hasn’t even been released yet— so you guys are in for a treat!

I would like to thank Cornelius Althammer for talking to me, and allowing me to use his bands’ music. As always, I thank Johannes and Theresa for providing me support, and a spot in Der Eibenreiter to publish to. High five!

Enjoy the show.

Coming up: Cornelius Althammer from Ahab, Fisted Mister, Raptvre, Svärd.

I am working hard on the upcoming episode of Feeding on Wind. On the next installment I will have the prolific musical multi-talent Cornelius Althammer as a guest.

He has performed in an almost unbelievable amount of bands, and is currently active in Ahab, Dead Eyed Sleeper, Fisted Mister, Raptvre, and Svärd, with an honourable mention to his former work in Ekranoplan.

Together, we shall talk our way through the effects of the pandemic on the underground scene, the drives that keep us sane, being in sync with the universe, clear goals, and practice over talent.

Have a listen to the below selection of tracks. That should give you a taste of what Cornelius is up to these days.

I hope you have your podcast subscriptions set up on all your devices, and I shall see you soon on the brand new episode of Feeding on Wind!
