Medications with Psychic Ills - An Interview

Prediletos do TBTCI, aliás o Psychic Ills é predileto de 11 entre 10 amantes do novo psych rock, também pudera, simplesmente espetacular o mix 60´s psicodelia com psych garage remodelado e mais do que atual.

O TBTCI já havia prenunciado o que esta acontecendo o psych iria dominar o submundo dos bons sons, em nome de Spacemen 3 e Brian Jonestown Massacre e os deuses do psicodelismo e viagens shoegazers fundiram-se e a explosão era inevitável, e agora tá aí, escancarado, sangrando, gritando e fazendo os freaks viajarem fortemente.

One Track Mind recém lancado, é simplesmente viciante, delirante e viajante, não há como não dizer que sera um dos mais mais desse ano.

O TBTCI já vinha ensaiando soltar essa entrevista mas estavamos, TBTCI e Psychi Ills apenas aguardando o momento propício, e agora veio, bom deleitem-se em poucas palavras os mestres do Psychic Ills.

***** Interview with Psychic Ills *****

Q. When did Psychic Ills starts, tell us about the history...
Tres Warren: The band started in 2003 in New York. I had ideas in my head for sometime before that, but that’s when it happened.

Q: Who are your influences?
TW: There’s too many to name, but here’s a few that I never stray to far from: Silver Apples, Suicide, Bob Dylan, Royal Trux, Gene Clark

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
TW: I can’t do that, but here’s the top 5 of last week:

1. 13th Floor Elevators – Bull Of The Woods
2. Master Musician of JouJouka - Brian Jones Presents The Pipes Of Pan At JouJouka
3. Tony Conrad with Faust – Outside the Dream Syndicate
4. Mayo Thompson – Corky’s Debt To His Father
5. The Byrds – (Untitled)

Q. How do you fee l playing live?
TW: I feel more comfortable playing a show than I do walking down the street.

Elizabeth Hart: The experience can vary a lot depending on the audience and the energy in the room or if the sound isn't quite right, but I always just try to just go with it, get lost in the music and have fun.

Q. How do you describe Psychic Ills sounds?
TW: It’s a sound that keeps growing. We’re building on some recurring things and working with what we know how to do, but also continuing to explore new things.
At this point we’ve tried some things that we’ve like better than other things. But then again, that’s always changing.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the new album?
EH: Tres, Chris Millstein and I tracked the guitar, drums and bass in about two days, a couple more days were spent on overdubs and vocals, and then we mixed the record in a few more days. It was a pretty quick process. It might be nice to have more time in the studio eventually, although I also kind of like the constraints of deadlines because you can't waste any time.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
EH: Chui Wan, Gap Dream, Moss Folk

TW: Wooden Wand

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
EH: The Doors

TW: George Jones

Q: What´s the plans for future....
EH: Keep making music, and see some more of the world playing music.

TW: There’s some talk about possible dates in Mexico and South America this summer. Maybe we’ll see you down there.

Q: Any parting words?
EH: Thanks for the interview!

TW: Thanks!
Thanks Tres
