Good, Now Repeat with We Keep The City Running - An Interview


Basicamente não há lá muita informação sobre o We Keep The City Running, salvo que é um projeto inglês, e que quem o comanda, não gosta de tocar ao vivo, não gosta de bandas novas, e aconselha você a nunca montar uma banda.

Marketing, pode ser, mas serve também para centrar-se na música, obviamente que é o que mais interessa, e o WKTCR pratica um mix de shoegaze, indie rock, dreampop, oras melancólico oras sofisticado, mas sempre com um ar de elegância.

O TBTCI até que tentou obter mais detalhes, mas o resultado final não foi lá tão esclarecedor assim, mas mesmo assim, convido a leitura, certamente poderá acrescer muito mais no mundo particular do We Keep The City Running.


***** Interview with We Keep The City Running *****


Q. When did WKTCR start? tell us about the history...
We Keep The City Running started in 2012 and ended in 2016. There's not really much history to share, we played less than 10 shows and recorded only 7 songs.

Q: Who are your influences?
I'm sure we all have different influences, it's not something we ever really discussed. Generally speaking, I never liked the same bands as the others. If pushed, I would say I really like the Beach Boys, Nirvana and the first two Weezer records.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
I don't have a five albums of all time. If you can answer that, you probably haven't listened to enough music. The following five albums are exceptional, however:

John Martyn - Solid Air
Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
Nirvana - In Utero
Weezer - Pinkerton
Kanye West - Yeezus

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I dislike playing live, always have. It's an egotistical indulgence,

Q. How do you describe WKTCR sounds? 

I've never had any interest in it.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Recording was a botched job, not really sure what else to say about that.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Don't know any new bands.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Never played a cover song, never really wanted to.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
My plans for the future are to build a new band, similar stylistically to WKTCR, but with a much wider sound. A post rock orchestra, like I'd hoped WKTCR would have been.

Q: Any parting words?
Don't be in a band, it's heartbreaking and soul destroying and a total waste of time.
