Sissy Spacek with Sorry Escalator - An Interview

O TBTCI veio do submundo dos bons sons e nele ficará, não há como fugir, e tampouco faço questão, é muito mais divertido, excitante, barulhento e aquela palavrinha básica, foda-se, serve perfeitamente para ilustrar a diversão que é se deparar com uma banda novata como os ingleses do Sorry Escalator.

Barulheira, melodias, noise bubblegum, algo como o J&MC, Lemonheads, Dinosaur Jr e Urusei Yatsura tudo junto e misturado a serviço apenas de propiciar diversão através de despretensiosas e grudentas pérolas.

O negócio é, se o submundo da música não dá grana, foda-se, mas que a gente se diverte pra caralho, isso se diverte, e é exatamente isso que os moleques do Sorry Escalator passam, sexo, drogas e rock´n´roll, o resto é balela.

Escute alto tomando alguma coisa, é claro.

***** Interview with Sorry Escalator *****

Q. When did Sorry Escalator start? Tell us about the history...
We started waay back in the day when it was just me and Ryan making noise in a freezing cold shed out the back of a pub in our home town. I later then moved off to Leeds to University but we never stopped playing together. Then in the summer of 2014 the second guitarist Shaun joined, he bought a whole new sound and structure to the band instead of it just being noisey ha! We kept jamming and writing whenever we could for a couple of years then we finally got our shit together and recorded the EP with the help of a good friend Matt Brown who also played bass on the EP . After the EP release we met Jamie and he was keen to step in on bass, completing the lineup we have now.

Q: Who are your influences?
Let's go for the most obvious first, My bloody valentine are probably the biggest influence on our sound. We are also massive fans of bands like Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth and Radiohead. More recently bands like Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees and Swrilies have been a big influence, even some heavier stuff like Melvins and True Widow.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
Radiohead - OK Computer (All of them really)
Slowdive - Souvlaki
Jesus and Mary Chain - Pyschocandy
Dinosaur Jr - You're living all over me

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Gigs are great when the audience is right, in our home town a lot of people complain we are too noisey and just want to listen to cover bands or that xfactor shite. But when the auidence is actually into it its great, no better feeling.

Q. How do you describe Sorry Escalator sounds?
Loud in your face shoegaze with poppy elements thrown in.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
Basically we did the whole EP in 10 hours! We booked a 10 hour session at Jar Mills Studio In leeds, Danny opened up locked us in and left! Me Ryan and Shaun had five songs we wanted to get done, Matt Brown stepped in to both record and put down the bass tracks. We just smashed it out in all live takes and then over dubbed the vocals, one day done.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
check out Leeds based shoegaze band Colour of Spring, we giged with them last year and they are top lads, also Curb again Leeds based are good friends of ours.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I have always had this thing about covering In Dreams - Roy Orbison, I just think it would make a great shoegaze song.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We are going to be recording a single of our new track which will be coming out later on this year, so keep your ears peeled.

Q: Any parting words?
Yeah, Somebody organise us a show in Sao Paulo!!!
