“Take a look” shouted to them Bruno Koschmider, the owner of the “Indra”, who had brought the boys from Liverpool to encourage them to perform for four and a half to six hours. Today it is no longer clear whether the red light size meant that the Beatles should put on a good show and not just stand around making music, or whether he asked them to specialize look play. The adjective look existed in the West German youth language of the early sixties in the sense of “great, great, especially good”.
It is clearer how the word Exi is to be understood that also haunted the Beatles’ memories of their time in Hamburg. Ironically, the four Englishmen attest to the existence of the abbreviation, which is otherwise not very often documented in written sources Exi For Existezialist.
