Strictly speaking, Music AM didn't form in the morning, but rather one evening in January 2002. On the evening in question, Volker Bertelmann from Dldorf and Luke Sutherland, from London, met to discuss their new musical project. Luke Sutherland, former singer and guitarist with Long Fin Killie, as well as fiddle player with the immensely popular Scottish instrumental rock band Mogwai, was deeply immersed in the final draft of his second novel "Sweetmeat" (his first novel "Jelly Roll" having been nominated for the Whitbread Prize in 1998), while Volker Bertelmann, had just finished his first album with the electronic pop outfit Tontraeger (together with Torsten Mauss).
Not forgetting to switch off the electric and feed the cat, Sutherland abandoned his typewriter a few months later and headed for Dldorf to record the first batch of songs. Music was definitely in the air. However, after a few instrumentals and vocal numbers, a feeling familiar to musicians began to dawn upon to both of them: We need bass! As luck would have it, Stefan Schneider, better known as Mapstation and bassist for To Rococo Rot, wandered by and was so taken with the work in progress, that he rushed home without further ado to fetch his bass to satisfy Luke and Volker's desire for those warming, deeper frequencies. With time and more collaboration in the studio, Schneider became a friendly accompanist and fellow musician without in any way swelling the ranks of Music A.M. beyond capacity.

Also available: A HEART & 2 STARS (CD).
