Frederik Teige is known for being a live-band member of danish group Efterklang. He is a multi-instrumentalist (singer, guitar, sax, bass, etc) based in Copenhagen and as a result has since 2007 toured all over Europe & North America.
Between tour dates Frederik enlisted the help of some of his close musician friends from other bands in Denmark ( Howl Baby Howl, Peter Broderick, A Kid Hereafter, Chimes and Bells) and recorded his debut full length – ‘Body God’.

And here’s the Q&A with Frederik
Where do you live actually?
Copenhagen, Denmark. Inside a Mercedes Sprinter tour bus.
What is the last thing you ate?
Cigarettes and bananas.
What do you collect?
I don’t collect, but I have a lot of CDs and books.
I honestly don’t have any quotes that I can recite. Then I would have to go through all my favorite books to find one. But I can a line from one of my songs: “Whenever something is broken there’s less stuff to worry about”
“Dead man” By Jim Jarmousch.
“The Cosmic serpent: DNA and the origins of knowledge” by Jeremy Narby. Read it!
Every time I hear a song that I love I tend to say that it’s my favorite song. But it must be ‘Heart of Gold‘ by Neil Young.
Which song do you listen to when you wake up?
Whatever song theres first on the cd that I forgot to take out of my stereo the night before. Today it was “Tangled” by The Black Heart Procession from the album “The spell”.
A song you wish you wrote yourself?
“Last Christmas” by Wham. Then I would buy myself a new bike.
The song to be played at your funeral?
I dont care since I’m not going to be there. Whatever my relatives and friends would find suitable for the occasion.
A song for relaxing on a beach?
“In the morning of the magicians” by the Flaming Lips.
In Denmark: Loppen, in Christiania. Outside of Denmark: Bottom of the Hill, in San Francisco.
Neil Young at Roskilde Festival in 2001. He went 45 minutes over scheduled time, and played “Keep on rocking in the free world” twice, second time in half tempo. I was very happy.
Favourite place on earth?
Amsterdam or Mexico City. I can’t decide between those two.
Where would you wish to wake up tomorrow?
In a 3D recording studio, on the moon.
