Echo Forever with Radar Men From The Moon - An Interview

Facilmente uma das mais intensas e instigantes bandas da atualidade o Radar Men From The Moon, vem diretamente dos Países Baixos vem ensurdecendo os aficionados em kraut, psych, shoegazer, experimentalismo e stoner, note bem, o RMFTM viaja entre todos os estilos citados oras deveras furioso e insano por outras navegando em ondas calmas e cristalinas.

Com três álbuns irrepreensíveis, Intergalatic Dada and Space Trambones (2011), Echo Forever (2012) e Strange Wave Galore (2014) os dois últimos lançados pela espetacular Fuzz Club Records.

Primeiramente como um trio e atualmente um quarteto o RMFTM é definitivamente para iniciados e adoradores de músicas nocivas e viciantes, Strange Wave Galore para este que vos escreve é um dos grandes álbuns deste cruel 2014.

E com exclusividade nestas terras RMFTM nas páginas do TBTCI.....

***** Interview with Radar Men From The Moon *****

Q. When did RMFTM starts, tell us about the history.. .
We started early 2011 as a threesome. We have the idea that we constantly have to re-invent ourselves to keep it interesting so in 2014 we added a fourth member to the band. He adds excitement.

Q: Who are your influences?
Friedrich Nietzsche, Martin Heidegger, Albert Camus, Michel Foucault, Jean Baudrillard, Comte de lautreamont, Franz Kafka, TS Eliot, Marcel Duchamp and the list goes on

Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time…
Sonic Youth - Sister,
The Fall - Hex eduction hour,
Melvins - Houdini,
Captain Beefheart - Trout mask replica,
Throbbing gristle - a second annual report,
Lou Reed - Transformer,
Cocteau Twins - Garlands

(whoops we've done seven favorite albums, sorry!)

Q. How do you fell playing alive?
Sweaty and confused

Q. How do you describe RMFTM sounds?
Repetitive nihilism and danceable cacophony

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Recording the basic drums, bas and guitar. After that the fun part begins with a lot of knob twisting madness with effects and experiments. Essentially we write the songs before we hit the studio, but lately we try to come up with new material as we’re recording it. We like to have the freedom to experiment with sounds and stuff.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
The Woken Trees, Lightning Glove, Black Puss, Elektro Guzzi, POW!, Shit & Shine, Lola colt.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
The Cure, New Order or Cocteau Twins

Q: What´s the plans for future....
We're in the middle of our writing process, so we want to record a new record/project. Something special, it's going to sound quite different from our previous work. After that we’ll be hitting Europe again.

Q: Any parting words?
Thanks for your interest and support in RMFTM!
Thanks Tony
