Psych Sounds of Black Bug - An Interview

Skate punk synth experimental ou mais ou menos isso, esse é o duo francês Black bug, hoje a França dominando as páginas do TBTCI, pois então, Refleting the Light lançado no ano passado passou despercebido por aqui mas a justiça tarde mas não falha, chegou a hora de colocar no roda esse album que é simplesmente genial, em alguns momentos me lembra os trabalhos do Blank Dogs só que mais cru e sintético, quando você acha que o negócio vai desandar pra pancadaria ele fico mais denso, quando você pensa que vai ficar mais escuro ele volta pra barulheira, simplesmente um daqueles albuns pra ouvir, reouvir, ouvir de novo, e ficar em looping direto e reto.

Bandaça foda, e como eu sempre digo, ACIMA.

Vamos de Black Bug e entrevista exclusiva pro TBTCI.

***** Interview with Black Bug *****

Q. When did Black Bug starts, tell us about the history...
I started recording by myself in 2007. After some time i asked Anna, my girlfriend at the time, if she could sing on some tracks.

We started doing live shows together with a drummer. We had a hard time finding a drummer and ended up playing with a ridiculous amount of drummer, i think we had 10 different over 2-3 years. During that time we had also broken up, and after a while my ex wasn't that interested in continuing. During a tour I met my current girlfriend and i moved from sweden to bordeaux, France with her. Since Anna wasn't into doing music anymore and we already had some difficulties  while touring together i decided to continue alone.
In 2012 i made a new album by myself and started touring with a new line up. That line up didn't last long and i decided to play live all alone in late 2013. That became very boring after some time so i asked to a friend in Bordeaux to start to play with me. So here we are today.

Q: Who are your influences?
I don't have any specific bands that influence me, i listen to all kind of music garage, punk, synth, metal,even some jazz. When i play, riffs pop up and i don't really think what influenced the stuff i just made.. It just happens.

Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time…
i never listen to full albums but here's a list from the top of my head:
Everything with Roky Erickson
crisis - holocaust hymns
slayer - reign in blood
Spacemen 3 - playing with fire
The crystals - don't know if they released an lp

Q. How do you fell playing alive?
If it goes well and people are into it - good. If not - bored.

Q. How do you describe Black Bug sounds?
some punk, part new wave and synth + Some undefined trash.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Usually i record the basic drums and 2 synths into a 4-track. After i import it into my computer and lay down
vocals and other stuff that comes into my head.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Jessica93, tormented, J.C. Satan,
