Dreamlanding by Füxa - An Interview with Randall Nieman

                                       




Algumas bandas permanecerão eternamente com a integridade jamais abalada, bandas que sobrevivem simplesmente pelo amor a música, obras inteiras que permanecem intocadas pela grande maioria incluindo grandes conhecedores, uma destas grandiosidades atende pelo nome de Füxa, Randall Nieman é a mente por detrás dessa perola que mescla dreaming music, space waves, drones e lirismo etereo acima do bem e do mal, o Füxa jamais atingira o mainstream simplesmente pelo fato de não ceder a nada.

Formado por Randall após sua saida de outra banda altamente recomendada chamada Windy & Carl, Randall desde 1995 vem criando obras que podem e devem ser denominadas de pérolas, verdadeiras trilhas para sonhos trazendo anjos, nuvens, a galaxia, estrelas e sensações que talvez apenas o Cocteau Twins fez de forma tão sublime.

Ouvir qualquer canção de Randall é como embarcar acordado para passeios por lugares jamais pensados, e acredite esses lugares estão mais proximos do que imaginamos.

E como parte da admiração do TBTCI pela obra em vida de Randall, nada mais justo do que elevar o Füxa a vocês que merecem e precisam experimentar estas sensações conjuntamente com este que vos escreve logicamente sendo guiados por Randall e o majestoso Füxa.

Veja toda a história deste ilustre desconhecido dos bons sons de hoje e sempre.


                                                         ***** Interview with Füxa *****


  

Q. When did Fuxa starts, tell us about the history...A. I STARTED FUXA IN 1994 JUST AFTER LEAVING THE BAND WINDY AND CARL. THE FIRST OFFICIAL RECORD RELEASE FOR FUXA WAS A SPLIT 7" IN SPRING 1995.

Q: Who are your influences?
A. A SHORT LIST WOULD INCLUDE: SUICIDE, BRIAN ENO, KRAUTROCK (NEU!, CAN, FAUST), BRIAN WILSON, VELVET UNDERGROUND, THE ANIMALS, LEE HAZLEWOOD, STUFF LIKE THAT.

Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time…
A. HARD TO PICK 5. I LISTEN TO THESE 5 ALBUMS PROBABLY THE MOST....
1. BRIAN WILSON "SMILE"
2. NEU! 86
3. JOHN LENNON "WALLS AND BRIDGES"
4. LA DUSSELDORF "BLUE"
5. BRIAN ENO "APOLLO"

Q. How do you fell playing live?
A. WAY BETTER THAN PLAYING DEAD! HA! SORRY. LIVE SHOWS ARE GREAT. I ONLY WISH THE MONEY WAS THERE TO BE ABLE TO BRING THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE IT TAKES TO ACTUALLY PLAY THE SONGS THE WAY I WROTE THEM.

Q. How do you describe fuxa´s sounds?
A. SPACE ROCK IS THE BEST DESCRIPTION I COULD THINK OF YEARS BACK. NOT SURE. I DO ALL KINDS OF SONGS/SOUNDS SO, PUTTING A LABEL ON IT KIND OF CHEAPENS WHAT IT ACTUALLY IS. IT IS THE SOUND OF ME AND ALL THINGS RELATING TO MY LIFE EXPERIENCES.

                                             

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the albuns?
A. I START THE SONGS HERE AT HOME AND GET THEM TO A POINT WHERE I FEEL COMFORTABLE SENDING THEM TO COLLABORATORS TO WORK ON (IF ANY). FROM THERE THE SONGS ARE SENT BACK TO ME AND I DECIDE WHAT SOUNDS THE BEST. THEN I'LL ADD WHATEVER ELSE I FEEL THE SONG NEEDS TO COMPLETE IT.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
A. THE MEEK ARE GREAT. MOON DUO ARE COOL. LEGENDARY CREATURES AND THE CROOKS ALSO. THERE ARE A LOT OF GREAT ACTS OUT THERE AT THE MOMENT.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
A. SUICIDE IS ALWAYS GREAT. MY FAVORITE OBVIOUSLY. IM DOING OTHER COVERS AT THE MOMENT BY BOB DYLAN AND BEN E KING JUST TO NAME A FEW. YOU'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE WHAT MAKES IT ON THE NEXT ALBUM.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
A. HOPEFULLY TO BE ABLE TO MAKE A LIVING DOING WHAT I LOVE, MAKE A FEW MORE RECORDS, PLAY A COUPLE OF SHOWS, FIND A GOOD WOMAN AND RETIRE IN THE WOODS.

Q: Any parting words?
A. FEEL ZE GOOD!
