Psychotic Reaction with Teenage Mary - An Interview

Psicodelismo garageiro daqueles que só quem é iniciado sabe, essa é a maxima para a novidade encharcada de fuzz chamada Teenage Mary que ainda não lançou nada oficialmente mas já causa frisson por onde passou e obviamente o TBTCI sempre ligado nas grandes barulheiras nos quatro cantos do mundo, descolou através de contatos imediatos, este feito por Steven, guitarrista do combo. Srs, aprofundem-se no universo psicotico e freak do Teenage Mary.

***** Interview with Teenage Mary *****

Q. When did Teenage Mary start, tell us about the history...
A. We started out about 7 months ago, we always fancied starting a band up so we got together and started jamming. We are all into the same sort of music so it was easy to find our sound and we just started writing tunes and getting great feedback on them. We played our first gig in June and it went really well, we have recently played more gigs supporting the likes of the Lucid Dream and Dead Sons.

Q: Who are your influences?
A. Our main influences include bands like The Beatles, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Black Angles, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Verve, Jesus and Mary Chain, Spiritualized, Spacemen 3, The Velvet Underground and many more.

Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time.
A. This can change every week, but as a collective of the whole band:

The Beatles: Rubber Soul
Brian Jonestown Massacre: Strung Out In Heaven
Jesus and Mary Chain: Psychocandy
The Verve: A Northern Soul
Oasis: Definitely Maybe

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A. We love playing live, there isn't a better buzz for us than getting up on stage and playing our songs to an audience.

Q. How do you describe Teenage Mary sounds?
A: Our sound is dirty 'rock and roll' with a lot of fuzz and drones. There are a couple of new songs in the process of being completed at the moment that have dialed back the fuzz quite a lot.

Q: When is the first official release due?
A: We are looking at releasing our first EP in February/March time next year but we don't have an official date as of yet.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
A. The Lucid Dream, Wild Eyes, Toba Caldera and Minaret are all great bands and friends of ours.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
A: We currently do a cover of The La's: I Can't Sleep

Q: What´s the plans for future
A. Our plan is to release our EP and just keep playing as many gigs as we can and spread the word about us, hopefully get on some festivals next year also.

Q: Any parting words?
A: Thank you for taking the time to ask us these questions. You can find us and listen to our recordings on www.soundcloud.com and www.facebook.com/teenagemary
Thanks Steve and Teenage Mary
