Damaged Goods with Plankton Dada Wave

Da Itália vem uma das maiores esquisitices musicais da atualidade, freak total, dadaísmo nonsense esquizofrênico musical com os dois pés fincados em gente como DEVO, Residents, Gang of Four, daí já dá pra se ligar que a pegada é pós punk new wave torto, mas bem torto mesmo,

Certamente será indigesto pra muita gente por aí, mas por aqui no TBTCI os caras agradaram de cada com seu epzinho Haus of Dada lancado pela Ghosto Records.

Ao vivo os caras demonstram estar mais afim de se divertirem do que qualquer coisa, visual kitsch e outros apetrechos e maluquices nonsense e a parada vem dando altamente certo.

Certamente David Thomas se ouvir abrira um sorriso de ponta a ponta, acreditem.

***** Interview with Plankton Dada Wave *****

Q. When did Plankton Dada Wave start, tell us about the history...
Like many other groups, we started as a cover band, we played covers of Weezer, Joe Jackson and Ramones but we weren't very good so we started writing songs we could play without making mistakes, then we changed name and now we're here with two quirky eps and something that looks like a real rock band.

Q: Who are your influences?
We take massive inspiration from odd and crazy new-wave, no-wave, post-punk groups from late 70's/early 80's like Devo, B-52's, Talking Heads, XTC, M, Buggles, Jo Squillo, Righeira, Psychedelic Furs, The Fibonaccis, Glenn Branca, Butthole Surfers, Television Personalities, DNA, Confusional Quartet, Geza X, Residents, Roxy Music, Blondie, Depeche Mode, Simple Minds, Duran Duran. We like also other and more actual groups, but the core of our music comes from those great days. Oh, and we freakin' love the songs from The Simpsons and Family Guy.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
So hard!

Devo - Q: Are We not man? A: We are DEVO
Frank Zappa – Sheik Yerbooty
Shitdisco – Kingdom of Fear
Gong – Flying Teapot
Duran Duran - Rio

Q. How do you feel playing live?
We don't know why people like our shows, we just try the best we can not to show we can't play any instrument: we wear kitsch shirts and eyeblowing sunglasses, throw bananas to the public, use plastic legs to play guitar and classy stuff like that.

Q. How do you describe plankton Dada Wave sounds?
We often say that we are the happy version of Joy Division, we play post-punk in the happiest way possible and we put some dada-nonsense on it.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
Just watch this.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Let's see: God Loves Fags, Ought, Johann Sebastian Punk, Soviet Malpensa, Archery Guild, There Will Be Blood, Follakzoid, Harry's Dead, Melt Yourself Down.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
On our rawest gigs we play this, we love mashups!

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We're trying to play live as much and as far as possible and we're writing our first lp that will be the noisiest and silliest album ever.

Q: Any parting words?
Join the d.a.d.a.
Thanks d.a.d.a guys
