SIlver Rocket with Creepoid - An Interview

Simplesmente uma daquelas bandas que tem tudo pra arrebentar tudo mas que por enquanto permanece restrita a iniciados, estou falando do Creepoid da Philadelphia, que em 2011 jogou no mundo Horse Heaven, um petardo altamente viciante.

Nuances de Sonic Youth e um apelo pop considerável os caras caminham por shoegazing, noise, alt rock e com propriedade já estão ensaiando vôos mais altos, vão fazer parte do SXSW e estão preparando o que será talvez o debut de "verdade" que virá ao mundo dia 04/03 próximo, ou seja, nada mais perfeito do que o TBTCI antecipar a esbórnia toda aqui nestas páginas, srs, Creepoid na área.

***** Interview with Creepoid *****

Q. When did Creepoid start, tell us about the history...
December of 2009, Sean came over to Pat and I's house and got snowed in. He was stuck there for a couple of days so out of cabin fever, the boys went into the basement and started jamming on some songs Sean had in the back of his mind. It started sounding awesome down there, so they laid down the tracks to tape, and asked me to try some back up vocals. We decided to ask our friend Pete Joe to see what he could come up with on second guitar , and it all just sort of fell into place after that.

Q: Who are your influences?
We all have different influences but I'd say major themes are : The Silver Jews, Beck, Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Unwound.... other 90s bands that feed our nostalgia

Q. Made a list of 5 albums of all time…
Geez, I don't know about of ALL TIME, but these albums have stood the test of time for me

Sonic Youth - Day Dream Nation
The Shipping News - Save Everything
MBV - Loveless
Joy Division - Unknown PleasuresThe Jam - All Mod Cons

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I can say personally that I feel incredible playing live. It's the most fun part of being in a band - because you're able to share this thing you've made in an immediate way. We've played some great shows with some amazing bands, but the best shows are always the ones where the crowd is right there with us - in our face, pushing, shoving and being a part of the experience.

Q. How do you describe Creepoid sounds?
Dark, Unsatisfied, Aching, Howls

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We generally always have a few things that are somewhat unresolved that we figure out in the process of recording. Perhaps we work best under pressure. "Horse Heaven" was recorded with the awesome Kyle "Slick" Johnson at Fancy Time Studio in 2010, and we returned to do drums and vocals with him for the "CREEPOID" S/T. We're now moving into doing our own engineering, and building our own studio. Our newest releases coming out later in the year will all be self engineered.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Hookworms, Fletcher Johnson, Hunters,The Diamond Center,

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
We talk about doing covers a lot, but we almost never do. One time we covered "Fume" by Beck and that kind of ruled.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
We're going to tour as much as possible this year - dates in SXSW, Pouzza Fest in Montreal are some of the highlights.  There are also some more surprises coming up soon, notably a one sided 12" to be released on Record Store Day!

Q: Any parting words?
Be kind.
