The Feeling of Love by The Feeling of Love - An Interview

O nome já diz por si só, The Feeling of Love, é exatamente isso, Reward Your Grace lancado há pouco mais de 1 ano que finalmente e tardiamente chegou ao meu conhecimento encanta de imediato.

A abertura com a majestosa Julee Cruise deixa bem claro o que vem pelas próximas 10 cancões deste que tem sido companheiro de horas e horas de audicão nestes últimos tempos, que disco meus amigos, que disco!!!

Enfim o TBTCI presta devida homenagem a grandiosa e eloquente obra criada pelo já predileto The Feeling of Love.

***** Interview with The Feeling of Love *****

Q. When did The Feeling of Love starts, tell us about the history... 
Guillaume Marietta: In 2007. It was just a solo project. Me recording very lo-fi garage rock ‘n’ roll…like Pussy Galore. But after 2 years I was really pissed of playing alone. So it became a band with Seb Normal on drums, Sebastien Joly on keyboards for three years. Since one year we are 4 people on stage with Henri playing guitar and bass. We do long, neurasthenic and lysergic love songs.

Q: Who are your influences?
A lot of stuff. Let’s say the Velvet Underground, Syd Barret, Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain, Can, Neu, Suicide, The Jesus and Mary Chain, frustration, hate, bad girls, stupid boys, junk food, cheap beers, dirty streets, David Lynch, David Cronenberg, Larry Clark, John Waters, Harmony Corine, Spacemen 3, and many more…

Q. Made a list of 5 albums of all time…
SPACEMEN 3 « Playing With Fire »
THE VELVET UNDREGROUND « The Velvet Underground and Nico »
BOB DYLAN « Highway 61 Revisited »
THE VELVET UNDERGROUND « White Light Whight Heat »

But tomorow I’ll tell you something else…

Q. How do you fell playing alive?
I need it. If we don’t do shows I feel depressed. But playing on stage also stressed me a lot sometimes. We are shy people. So we need to get drunk before playing. But usualy we have fun. I love the sound we have now we are 4 in the band.

Q. How do you describe The Feeling of Love sounds?
Violent, psychedelic, sneaky, freaked, sweet, with a twiste of lemon.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
You go in a studio. You record songs. Or you do it at home. It’s just about having fun, working very late, being tired, crazy, excited, bipolar…

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Cate Le Bon, she is the best. But she’s not really new actually.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
Right now I wanna do a cover of « Take Me Home » by Perfume Genius.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
Goin’ on tour in France and Europe, recording new songs and puting out a new E.P. after this summer.

Q: Any parting words?
« If you’re gonna try to make it right, you’re surely gonna end up wrong. »
Lou Reed
