Erica Mulkey (Unwoman) e Matt Fanale (Caustic), foram o Beauty Queen Autopsy que recentemente soltou seu debute ao mundo, Lotharia é o nome da criança.
Algo como o The Kills mais soturno e dark, com uma atmosfera absolutamente sexy e hipnótica o Beauty Queen Autopsy acertou o equilíbrio na dose correta em mesclar suas conexões.
Perfeito pra ouvir pré noitada.
***** Interview with Beauty Queen Autopsy *****
Matt: Several years ago I had an idea to do a female fronted band where I could explore ideas I couldn't necessarily do well with Caustic, and Erica popped into my head since we'd worked together previously on a collaboration. It took a while to find "The Beauty Queen Autopsy Sound," but when I figured it out we both dove right in. Now we're rich and famous.
Q: Who are your influences?
Matt: For BQA it's everything from the Jesus and Mary Chain and EMA to The Kills and Bikini Kill. Erica: vocally, I love Julie London, Lana Del Rey, Neko Case, and Siouxsie.
Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
Matt: I've got dozens, but I'll do it in relation to this album:
1) The Kills- Keep on Your Mean Side
2) Pulp- Different Class
3) EMA- Past Life Martyred Saints
4) PJ Harvey- Rid of Me
5) Sisters of Mercy- Floodland
1) Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
2) Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
3) IAMX - The Alternative
4) Crass - Penis Envy
5) Lana Del Rey - Born to Die
Q. How do you feel playing live?
Matt: Well we've only done it once, but it was a great experience. Lots of energy, lots of distortion, and lots fun. Erica: I loved it! I got to play dress up and invoke a ton of sex appeal I'm often, especially performing at mult-generational steampunk events, too restrained to turn on
Q. How do you describe Beauty Queen Autopsy sounds?
Matt: Take a pretty pop song, feed it into a meat grinder of distortion, add beautiful vocals, and there you go.
Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Matt: I write all the music and lyrics and send them to Erica, and she gives me feedback on any changes she think would help the track. I make those changes and she adds her vocals and harmonies and all that.
Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Matt: Recently I've been all over Courtney Barnett and have been enjoying the new album from High Functioning Flesh. Pure Ground, Chvrches, and Go Fight are the shit, too.
Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Matt: We've already done two covers I always wanted to do, the Sex Pistols' "Submission" and Placebo's "Pure Morning". We've got a few more in the works, but they're a secret. Okay, it's a cover of John Cage's 4'33". Erica: We try to cover 4'33" but I keep giggling. But yeah, there are a couple covers that were requests from the kickstarter and I'm excited to lay down vocals for those soon! Our fans have good taste in other music, it seems.
