On September 8th—right outside of the legendary nightclub Berghain in the Cantine area,—Post-Punk.com had the pleasure of interviewing EBM and Industrial music legend Douglas J. McCarthy of Nitzer Ebb and Fixmer/McCarthy.
We discussed with Douglas the Post-Punk influences of Berlin (including The Birthday Party, Einstürzende Neubauten and Malaria!), as well as Techno’s influence on Industrial/EBM and vice versa—plus how he ended up working with Terence Fixmer, and his thoughts on Berghain—and it’s infamous door policy.
We also remembered the late Frank Tovey of Fad Gadget, who would have turned 60 on the day this interview was filmed.
..and off camera we briefly discussed Hazel Hill McCarthy III (his wife), and her work on Bight of the Twin—a film about Voodoo made with Genesis BREYER P-ORRIDGE.
