Psychotic Reaction with Black Market Karma - An Interview

Psych!!!!!!!Ou seja, o termo já expurga quase que na integra todos os leitores dos quais o TBTCI não tem o menor interesse em abordar, porque simplesmente esta casa é para iniciados e feitos por iniciados, nada pessoal, mas sabe como é, vamos manter o ambiente seleto.

Desde que tomei conhecimento desde combo formado por Stan Belton, Mike Sutton, Sam Thompon Garido, Mat Salerno, Louisa Pili e Tom Parker foi amor a primeira distorção. Esses ingleses que atendem pela alcunha de Black Market Karma bebem na fonte da garageira psicodelica e estridente dos 60´s, veem Anton Newcombe como um icone, geram muralhas sonoras de fazer Kember&Pierce sorrirem, e ecoam brandamente pelos delays dos shoegazers, e a formula esta feita. Psych da melhor qualidade, viagens sonoras abrasivas e extenuantes é o que o BMK tem a nos ofertar, e note bem, a oferta é gratuita vide o link abaixo contendo seu ultimo EP All I´ve Made e o colossal e grandioso debut Comatose de 2011, daqueles que infelizmente passaram desapercebidos até pelo TBTCI e que certamente poderiam muito bem constar como um dos grandiosos de 2011. Comatose corrói o wall of sound e destroça os timpanos em seus quase 60 minutos de psicodelismo pleno.

A Flower Power Records gentilmente contactou o TBTCI e nos concedeu uma entrevista diretamente com a banda e sem firulas como a sonoridade agressiva do Black Market Karma a entrevista fluiu ácida e desnorteante, Srs. Black Market Karma em primeira mão.

PS: notem a recomendação do BMK, preparem-se porque já já tem Dead Rabbits com entrevista doentia...

***** Interview with Black Market Karma *****

Q. When did BMK starts, tell us about the history...
1.) I've been playing with people since a very young age, starting with first picking up the guitar back in school. We had a lot of trial and error with line-up changes and ideas and it's only recently that the band became Black Market Karma. So I would say we've been playing for just over 2 years now.

Q: Who are your influences?
2.) We have a big list of influences and it's always expanding. If you go on our website there's a list of some of them though, too many to put here. We're not afraid to let people see that either. It's pretty self serving to try and hide the music that has affected your writing.

Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time…
3.) 5 albums? That's too hard man! I guess Loveless would be in there and most of the Brian Jonestown Massacre records. There's tons of stuff though. Couldn't cram it into 5.

Q. How do you fell playing alive?
4.) When everything right it's the best feeling ever. Being on stage has this intangible quality to it. Something you can't really explain but it makes you feel invincible.

Q. How do you describe BMK sounds?
5.) Our music is comprised of thick open guitar sounds and gliding melodies poured over laid back beats and peppered with hypnotic vocals and fuzzed out bass.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the new EP?
6.) All That I've Made and Comatose were both recorded the same way at the same time. We just decided to split the tracks up onto different things as we didn't want to scrap any of them. We record everything ourselves in a home studio and I mix the tracks using Pro Tools. We've recently posted some videos of us recording new songs for our second record. Go onto youtube and you'll be able to look them up.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
7.) Listen to Dead Rabbits. The band from Southampton not the other ones.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
8.) We don't do covers. If listening to a tune inspires you to want to cover it then it's probably good enough as it is and should be left alone. Sometimes it's different though. I think you should only cover a song if you really know you can bring something else to it.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
9.) We're looking forward to getting around this year. Playing some festivals over the summer in UK, France and Italy. Thinking of heading to Germany at some point too. We've also just finished recording our second record so we'll be looking to release that soon.

Q: Any parting words?
10.) Thanks to those that have read this. If you haven't heard us before go to to download our E.P. and Debut Album completely free.
Thanks Flower Power Records & thanks BMK
