We started out as a 4 piece band, but
soon we evolved to the group we are now. So far we released a split
CD on Offerandum records in 2005, did a small Belgium tour with
Jairus, and a European tour with Officer Jones and his patrol car
problems. And now we are heading for our second Euro tour which will
bring us to Slovenia... - I've met most of you in person
and I must say, all you guys are pretty different from each other,
how did you get together to form this band, is there a 'leader' in
There is no leader in the band. We write the songs
together, just by rehearsing and trying things. I agree we differ
from each other, but I rather see this as a positive aspect then as
a negative. This means we have a lot off different influences that
we have to deal with while making the songs, which leads to
different ideas. - How would you describe your sound to
someone who has never heard you before?
Again, like I said in
the first question. We can't give you a exact description of how we
sound... the best way is to come and check us out live, also because
the visual aspect brings a lot of extra intensity.- So last
summer you did an european tour with Officer Jones, do you have any
cool stories to share?
Hahah, of course. From running away at
night from the Czech police at the swimming pool at Fluff Fest,
buying illegal weapons just before crossing the Czech border, making
trips through the German corn fields at night, or visiting one off
the biggest porn shops ever seen in Paris! Yeah! 6. Do you
consider yourself a part of the hardcore/punk community? If so, how
do you feel about the current state of it?
In the beginning our
music was more hardcore related then nowadays... I don't know if we
still truly consider ourself being part of the scene. I think we are
somewhere on the border... The music maybe has the intention to
reach a bigger audience, but the ideas we share are still hardcore
or punk inspired. So, it's up to you to decide...- What are
your influences; Music, books, people?
Of course music is a big
source of inspiration. Everything has already been done before, so
it's stupid to consider yourself as a truly new and original band.
The thing is to take ideas from what's already done, and try to
adapt it to your own sound. Another important influence, is just the
things going on around us. The life we are living, the things we
share... - So you guys have quite some (new) material by
now, are you getting ready to release anything soon? Tell us about
your plans for the next record.
Well, for the tour we are
currently working on a DIY (see we are still thinking punk) promo
cd, which has one new song, and two videos. It also comes in a nice
package, but the whole thing is very limited. Beside this, we hope
to finish a new full length somewhere mid 2008.
9. What do
you think is the best thing that happened to you (as a band) so far?
We are all very exited about our coming tour. We play in a lot
of beautiful places, and with some really nice bands. By the way,
some one told us there are dolphins in the sea of Koper, so we are
not leaving before we've seen those motherfuckers!
last words and shoutouts?
Thank you for having this interview,
and taking your time to read this. Come and see us at Lasko on
13/09, or in Koper at 14/09. We can go swim together then and try to
find the dolphins! Yieha!
