Thanks God For Mental Illness with This Other Kingdom - An Interview

Diretamente de Dublin, Irlanda, o ensurdecedor This Other Kingdom vem fazer parte do exército que vem se formando e tornando-se maior e mais poderoso ao redor do mundo, a cena Psych moderna vem rapidamente tornando-se extremamente poderosa, e recheando o cardápio mundial dos Festivais, Japão Psych Festival, Glasgow Psych, Liverpool Psych e por ai vai, todos vem se juntamente ao maior de todos o Austin Psych Festivall, um sinal fortíssimo e que esta meio que sendo evitado pela critica especializa, mas o TBTCI avisa, já já isso vai explodir de tal forma que não mais podera ser evitado.

O This Other Kingdom jogara no mercado amanhã, 16/04 seu Ep de estréia o tortuoso e atormentado Sunlight, escute Vacate The Horror e veja o tamanho do estrago.

Lógico que o TBTCI esta acompanhando de perto, porque é somente o comeco do que o This Other Kingdom vai fazer, por essas vamos com a entrevista, mas antes, só um adendo, o que esta sendo colocado foi precipitado no minimo há uns 3 anos aqui nestas páginas.

Peace, love and pych

***** Interview with This Other Kingdom *****

Q. When did This Other Kingdom starts, tell us about the history...
A: This Other Kingdom was put together in 2011 but only lasted a few months. We then took a break away to write some new songs and create a sound that would make This Other Kingdom different from the pack. We regrouped the end of 2012 with a new line up and a hunger to push the band as far as it can go.

Q: Who are your influences?
The bands influences vary but we do all like similar bands. I'd say my influences would be John Lennon, The Doors, Joy Division, The Cure, The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones, The Black Angels, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Fleetwood Mac etc...

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico
John Lennon - Imagine
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
The Doors - LA Woman
The Cure - Disintegration

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I love playing live. I love the buzz of playing to a crowd. It's very satisfying to release all the hard work that would have been done in the rehearsal studio, especially if you have a loving audience.

Q. How do you describe This Other Kingdom sounds?
I'd describe our sound as Fuzzy Psychedelic Rock. The walls of sound are the emotion that portray the lyrics.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the Sunlight ep?
I had worked with the engineer before with a previous band so we decided to get him and book a studio. It was just a matter of picking four of our best songs and making an EP that we would all be happy to release, which I feel we have accomplished.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
I listen to a lot of music, all kinds too. I go through phases, like I'm sure a lot of people do. My favourite bands at the moment though would be, The Blue Angel Lounge, The Black Angels, Temples and Jagwar Ma. They all offer different sounds but all still carry a lovely psychedelic vibe.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
Well, we have been working on doing a cover of Rodriguez - Only Good For Conversation. It has that lovely fuzzy riff in it that I think would fit in our sets and it's a fantastic song from an amazing song writer.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
We just really want to get our music out to as many people as possible. We would love to travel the world with our music and experience other countries and their love for music.

Q: Any parting words?
Thank you for showing an interest our band and helping us spread our music. We very much appreciate it.
