White Rabbit with Dead Rabbits - An Interview

Psicodelismo em estado bruto, caótica, insano, doentio, perigoso, sexy, doses cavalares de fuzz, distortions e chega né!!??! Chega nada, para os Dead Rabbits o perigo deve ser constante, vide o estrago feito nos dois eps Self Destruct e I Love You, amor e destruição caminham lado a lado, como bons seguidores de Spacemen 3 e Brian Jonestown Massacre a máxima não poderia ser diferente.

Diretamente da Flower Power Records, os Dead Rabbits são um convite a druggy trip sounds, além da autodestruição eminente, os Rabbits pegam a o garage blues do Chocolate Watch Band e colocam no caldeirão colorido e o cataclismo esta prestes a borbulhar, mas veja bolhas coloridas que ao estourarem em nossas mentes fica a sensação clara que não mais a sobriedade possa nos consumir.

Entorpeça-se e deixa os Dead Rabbits fazerem o restante, mas antes tente adentrar aos mundo dessas freaks através da psicodelica entrevista concedida ao TBTCI, have a good trip.

***** Interview with Tom Hayes of Dead Rabbits *****

Q. When did Dead Rabbits start, tell us about the history...
A. We’d been playing together for a while, we had a lot of material recorded and ready to play live. Around a year ago we got our current line-up together and started playing under the name Dead Rabbits.

Q: Who are your influences?
A. Chocolate Watchband, Link Wray, Joy Division, The Beatles, Jesus & Mary Chain, Son House, Death In Vegas, Velvet Underground, Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Stooges, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Spaceman 3, The Doors, 13th Floor Elevators.... etc

Q. Made a list of 5 albums of all time----
A. The Chocolate Watchband – The Inner Mystique
- Spiritualized – Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space
- Brian Jonestown Massacre – Who Killed Sgt. Pepper
- The Velvet Underground – The Velvet Underground & Nico
- Primal Scream - Screamadelica

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A. Playing live is something we really enjoy doing, live shows give people a chance to really appreciate what we’re doing. You can feed off an audience, if the crowd are getting into it, you can feel it, everything is enhanced

Q. How do you describe Dead Rabbits sounds?
A. People have described us as a lot of different things, we try not to pigeon hole ourselves. We never set out to make a song sound like something else, we just work on whatever we think sounds good. Between us, we’re all into a lot of different music, I think you can tell that when you listen to us. If we had to be pigeon holed we’d probably go with shoegaze or space rock, its whatever you want it to be.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the sounds?
A. We’ve got no set way of doing things. Our style of recording changes almost every time we record; how do you know what’s good unless you’ve tried everything. When it comes to writing songs we use recording a lot. If someone comes up with something they like, we’ll record it and from there we can listen back and see what we can do. We’ll always try a lot of different things and keep going with whatever works.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
A. Obviously Black Market Karma, being on F.P.R with them is great. We’ve been fortunate to see them a few times recently and they’ve been amazing. It’s been good to see them gradually progress, their getting better all the time. As well as B.M.K there’s loads of other new music I’ve like to mention but I’d be here forever, apologises.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
A. Well, we’ve already recorded a few covers (Elvis Presley – Love Me Tender, Death In Vegas – Girls, The Doors – My Wild Love), recording covers is something we really enjoy doing, but it’s also something we try to avoid doing too much. It doesn’t always feel quite right playing someone else’s music, the covers we’ve done before only came about naturally, there was never any real intention to go and record any covers.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
A. Keep making music, keep playing live, keep recording. Essentially we’re a work in progress, we’re on a journey somewhere, I don’t know where but we’ll all know when we’re there, you’ll know when we’re there.

Q: Any parting words?
A. Listen to our music, come see us live. We’ve almost finished our acoustic EP ‘No Rights’, that will be released very soon. As well as that we’ve recorded five tracks for our 12” split with The KVB, we’re looking forward to getting that released as well. Thanks to everyone who’s been listening to our music, thanks to everyone that’s been to our shows, keep on listening and tell the world what you heard.
