Dead Souls with The Doctors - An Interview

Pós punk cerebral e doentio diretamente de Bordeaux, França, o The Doctors é um duo que sonoramente muito se aproxima a agressividade do Soviet Soviet porém um tiquinho mais soturno.

Alguns eps no currículo e todos caminhando pelo pós punk ácido lembrando P.I.L., Killing Joke, e transportando isso tudo para os dias de caos atuais.

Canções ou melhor espasmos caóticos como Diese, Savinkov, L´Integral são exemplos claros do poderio do The Doctors e a tendência para o catarse sádica dos caras.

Aficionados em pós punk, art noise devem obrigatoriamente segui-los.

***** Interview with The Doctors dctrs *****

Q. When did The Doctors starts, tell us about the history...
We start three years ago. But we played in different bands before. As we are brothers, we play together for a long time. We were living in two different towns, and in 2011 we came in Bordeaux. A friend tell us he's got a good place to play music, so we start to play and experiment how to mix guitar and bass with loopers, samples and computer technology. We wanted to keep real rock energy and riffs on a linear drum beat and adding all we want in the songs. The only limit is that we have to play it live.

Q: Who are your influences?
There's toom many influences. In all the decade since the sixties. We can say, Joy Division, My bloody Valentine, Jefferson Airplane, Wire,The Smiths, The Clash …. Sorry, there's too many bands. But we really appreciate bands with a dark side in lot of kind of musics, pop punk, rock, new wave...

Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time…
« Revolver » The Beatles
« Loveless » My Bloody Valentine
« Figure 8 » Elliott Smith
« Closer » Joy Division
« Psychocandy » The Jesus and Mary Chain

Q. How do you fell playing live?
It's the best moment for us, that's the way our music sounds the best, with the power and the energy we need. A moment where you play your own musical vocabulary, share it with people. All is stronger when you play live.

Q. How do you describe The Doctors´ sounds?
We are mixing heavy rock bass and guitar with cold wave's loops, chords or sounds we built. We are really interested by riffs repetitions or loops in our songs. The result sounds dark and cold, with lot of rock energy.

The lyrics are very important too, the writing is based on surrealism collage, in french or in german.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
First, we play together, bass/guitar on a linear drum beat. When we got the structure of the song, we work on computer or on keyboard to add and melt the samples or loops. At the end, we can have three or four versions of the same song. We always choose what is the best for us to play live.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Actually, we really like bands as Holograms, Metz, The Soft Moon, or in France, Jessica 93

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
It's difficult to find only one, but maybe a really different band wich have a different universe from us. Maybe The Dandy Warhols played as speed as we do usually:)

Q: What´s the plans for future....
We're recording a new single this december, in the same studio that the lasts two EP in Bordeaux. And in 2015 a new album with a tour.

Q: Any parting words?
Thanks to you and maybe one day live in Brazil.
