It's time to get to know Paceshifters' Jesper! We set Jesper 10 questions about his musical likes, tastes and guilty pleasures...


 How would you describe your taste in music?

I have a very varied taste in music. I grew up listening to a lot of Americana/Roots music which I still like very much, but when I started playing the drums I was more interested in rock, punk and heavier stuff. Bands like Hüsker Dü, Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Fugazi and Black Sabbath really got me going!

 Who do you consider to be your favourite band and why?

The Replacements. First of all because they have a lot of different styles to offer. They started out as a punk band but on their record ‘Let It Be’ which is my favourite are also a lot of good ballads like ‘Unsatisfied’ and ‘Sixteen Blue’. Secondly I really like Paul Westerberg’s voice because it’s so raspy.


Who is the best live band you’ve ever seen?

That has to be Ryan Adams at the Oosterpoort in Groningen. I saw him play live a couple of times before but this was the best one. His band was just great and Ryan himself was in top shape. The best part was when they played ‘Dirty Rain’. It’s kind of a slow song but they played it really loud!


What is the one song that you could listen to forever?

I think that’s ‘Girl Who Lives On Heaven Hill’ by Hüsker Dü. Every verse it just gets louder and louder and more intense. I really like Grant Hart’s songwriting. Too bad he passed away at such a young age.
