Reductio Ad Absurdum with The Deepsea Goes - An Interview

Muitas e muitas vezes tudo que é preciso é uma porção exagerada de barulho, caos, terror e demência para suportar o cotidiano apático do qual usualmente estamos acostumados a vivenciar, e para isso existem algumas trilhas sonoras feitas sob medida, leia-se Fugazi, The Fall, Unwond, Big Black, The Pop Group, Helmet, Shellac e afins e exatamente desse transtorno sonoro que o duo de Los Angeles, The Deepsea Goes se alimenta.

Experimente dar play no insano e demente "Reductio Ad Absurdum" e tente sair ileso eu o desafio. O álbum é uma pancadaria certeira bem no centro do crânio, interlando o pós punk caótico de gente como o The Pop Group e o pós hardcore de um Fugazi ou Unwond.

O The Deepsea Goes é feito sob medida para expurgar todo e qualquer demônio, e se, por acaso sobrar algum vestígio após a audição de "Rectio Ad Absurdum" adicione "Oraoneiroi" (álbum de 2009) e aniquile por completo seus problemas.

***** Interview with The Deepsea Goes *****

Q. When did The Deepsea Goes start? Tell us about the history...
The Deepsea Goes started out as a recording side project for Paul while he was playing guitar & bass in bands. Towards the end of 2006 Janine decided to start playing drums & within a year we released "Épater le bourgeois" & played a couple of disastrous shows. After releasing "FORCALI", "Extraordinary Renditions", & "Reductio Ad Absurdum" across a surprisingly prolific stretch of 2008, we started touring strange amounts of the US every couple of months.

"Oraoneiroi" was released in August of 2009 & was supported by a Fall tour that seemed to collapse on itself. After a brief tour to Cleveland in summer 2010 we took a break from recording & cut back on live performances. In 2012, "Worship The Future" was released & that summer we played 14 shows throughout California. Since 2013 we've been writing & perpetually recording a full-length that's scheduled to be released sooner than later. We will most likely begin playing shows again around the greater Los Angeles area this fall/winter.

Q: Who are your influences?
Drive Like Jehu, Unwound, Fugazi, Wipers, Pixies, Slowdive, The Fall, Failure, Ride, Jimmy Eat World, Black Sabbath, Wire.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
Gil Scott-Heron - Pieces of a Man
Slowdive - Souvlaki
Can - Ege Bamyasi
PJ Harvey - To Bring You My Love
INXS - Kick

Television - Marquee Moon
The Mummies - Never Been Caught
Chantal Goya - dans les 6 chansons du film de Jean-Luc Godard "Masculin-Feminin"
Boris - Pink
The Intruders - Greatest Hits

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A combination of surprise, terror, ecstasy, confusion, joy, panic, delirium, & exhaustion.

Q. How do you describe The Deepsea Goes sounds?
A pretty, loud band. Guitars and drums and stuff.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
The drums are usually recorded in less time than it takes to set up the mics. Guitar & bass parts are typically fully recorded before being thrown away & completely rewritten a couple of times. All of the vocals are recorded through tearful self-doubt which results in dozens of trashed takes. The Deepsea Goes recorded output is the sound of giving up & moving on.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Slow Code, Darto, Leisure World, Darto, Sterile Jets, etc.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
At rehearsal we've toyed around with PJ Harvey, Jimmy Eat World, & Wipers songs. We'll try anything once, but we probably won't remember most of the lyrics or be able to coherently get past the first chorus. I'm pretty sure we did get through a version of "Roadrunner" by the Modern Lovers before though.
