Interstellar Overdrive with Mushroom Club - An Interview

Mais lisergia no TBTCI agora a cargo do Mushroom Club, o nome fala por si só, uma viagem completa sob efeito de alucinogenos ou qualquer que seja o psicotrópico predileto no momento, verdadeiras druggy trips em cada uma das quatro músicas do primeiro ep homônimo do Mushroom Club.

Heroin Picnic, Cannabinoid, são perfeitos exemplos da alucinacão psicodélica que é a música dos caras, e isso é apenas o inicio da viagem, e só um ultimo detalhe, cuidado porque vicia.

Melhor ler diretamente da fonte os motivos verdadeiros da viagem do Mushroom Club.

***** Interview with Mushroom Club *****

Q. When did Mushroom Club start, tell us about the history...
The Mushroom Club was born in the summer of 2012 when the 1st batch of sounds and songs were put together by Paul. Then during recording sessions of the EP1 Blair became involved.

Q: Who are your influences?
We are heavily influenced by many things such as the things that surround us, art, film, literature, drugs, friends and family and people that we meet on our journey through life. We have so many musical influences it would be hard to name them all but here are some of the bands. The Who, The Kinks, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, the velvet underground Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett, 13th floor elevators, the clash, The Jesus And The Marychain, spacemen 3, Joy division, the stone roses the verve, the Brian Jonestown massacre, The Black Angels, The La's, Primal scream.

Q. Make a list of top 5 albums of all time…
I couldn't possibly pick 5 albums as it's just too hard as I love lots of bands but here is a few we love
Pink Floyd - The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
The Stone roses - The Stone Roses
The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground
The La's - The La's
Spacemen 3 - Sound of confusion

Q. How do you fell playing live?
Playing live is one of those magical experiences that take us to a special place in our minds a place we call heaven.

Q. How do you describe Mushroom Club sounds?
It's impossible for us to describe the sound of The Mushroom Club. It's almost impossible to express it in our music let alone put it in to words.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs and when the album comes?
The process of recording on EP1 was that I created a sound and then wrote the songs and then I recorded them in my home studio. Then I took the songs to Blair where we recorded them again changed a few things and added the vocal and then he mixed them. We are currently working on the follow up to EP1 which should be out early 2013.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Sonic Jesus
Dead Horse One
The Cult Of Dom Keller

Q: What´s the plans for future...
I’ve just finished writing some songs for EP 2 which we will start recording soon. Hopefully put out a few records this year and our 1st album.

Q: Any parting words?
We would like to say thanks to everyone who has listened to The Mushroom Club and bought or downloaded our music. We would also like to say thanks for the support and for asking us to do this interview.
