Franz : People use to ask me this question quite often, but I must admit I still haven’t found the answer really. At the beginning of it all, I was playing in a German festival and the promoter asked me what was the band name… I have been searching on things for one night long, and finally I answered SCHULTZ. As an industrial german music fan, I thought it was a good name for this project. Simple, and easy to remember.
Guitarfox : It sounds a little too German for me as a French guy, but the name already existed when I joined the band. LOL
Franz:I think lot of things from French music to industrial music. When I was young my parents listened lot of music at home and in the car. So I have always listened to lot of music. Now I have my own taste but I think all this kind of music have an influence on the music I make today. Even if my parents don’t listen to metal or industrial music 😉
Guitarfox : My parents used to listen things of their age : Beatles, Rolling Stones, Who, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple… So as a teenager, I rebelled with more heavy stuffs : Punk rock, heavy, thrash, black and death metal… Classic story ! Now as an adult I am more open-minded, I can listen to Jazz, classic, electronic, in fact, everything that opens the doors of cosmic mysteries in me, whatever the style…
