Fuzztones with Gum - An Interview


Noise fuzz pop songs são grudentas até o talo, o maior mestre no quesito atendia pelo nome de Black Tambourines, simplesmente um patrimônio ruidoso e pegajoso.

Bebendo neste fonte os londrinos do Gum atacam via bubblegum noise fuzz songs com seu novissimo ep Seventeen, cinco musiquinhas pra fazer a festa de qualquer fã do genero, sem contar outras fontes facilmente perceptiveis, MBV e J&MC é óbvio, como se livrar da influências dos mestres, diz ai?!?!E quem disse que o Gum quer se livrar das suas influências, elogiados por gente do naipe de Pains of Being Pure at Heart e Ringo Deathstarr, já dá facilmente pra sacar que o Gum é queridinho do TBTCI, e não a toa.

E uma entrevista no minimo esquizo com os caras vem com mais fuzz ainda......

***** Interview with Gum *****


Q. When did Gum starts, tell us about the history...
Gum were born on September 15th 2011 and are not dead yet. Chris and myself come from the Island of Jersey, Dayoung 'Styxx' Yun is from South Korea and Jess comes from the sunny seaside town of Brighton.

Q: Who are your influences?
Kit Carruthers and Holly Sargis... any teenage couple hell bent on going over the edge.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
1. Junkyard - The Birthday Party
2. Evol - Sonic Youth
3. Any album from The Smiths
4. Master Of Reality - Black Sabbath
5. Loveless - My Bloody Valentine

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Forgetful, it's quite easy to drift off.

Q. How do you describe Gum sounds?
Slippy and occasionally wavey....but sometimes its follows a particular line.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the new ep?
We all met on a boat which had a studio built into the bottom deck. It was recorded and produced by Rory Attwell from Test Icicles (who has a new project called Warm Brains which is worth checking out) As we played the boat rocked back and forward which created that washy sound from our guitars. Legend has it Kevin Sheilds ancestors were Spanish pirates who handed down the secret of the shoegaze guitar sound to him.

Q. What´s represents the shoegazer classic era to the band?
Don't think there is one for us...we pretty much listen to whatever we like from whenever we like and there are gazey bands that fit in there too. I don't really even see a gap between shoe gaze and the nu-gaze bands.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
We have been playing with Honeyslide, Tyrannosaurus Dead and The Hundredth Anniversary recently who are all amazing. On my walk-man I've been enjoying LSD & The Search For God, Micachu & The Shapes, Ringo Deathstarr (Who we are playing with soon) Cerebral Ballzy and The Vile Imbeciles album 'D Is For W' which I can't stop listening to.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
The Birthday Party, I would love to do a Gum version of "Deep In The Woods" though I'm not sure if its possible. I've also been looking at 'Teenage Idol' by Ricky Nelson. I'm a big Roy Orbison fan too, so a slice of Roygaze could be good.

Q: What´s the plans for future...
Double concept album with no gaps would be nice but more than likely a normal album with 19 songs clocking in at 19 minutes. Could go either way or not at all. A tour is imminent also, just not sure how to do it yet!

Q: Any parting words?
Listen to Black Sabbath.
