Personality X-Ray wth The Hex Dispensers - An Interview

Não se engane ao ouvir o quarteto de Austin, Texas, The Hex Dispensers, não, não são os Ramones retornando das tumbas.

Mas note bem, se os Ramones se encontram-se com Roky Erickson e tivessem uma queda pelo pos punk certamente eles seria os The Hex Dispensers.

O terceiro disco dos caras lançado em junho agora já esta esgotado, acredite! Existe um culto ao redor da banda que os torna altamente atraentes.

É pra ouvir alto, muito alto e sair pra rua.

***** Interview with The Hex Dispensers *****

Q. When did The Hex Dispensers started, tell us about the history...
Our first rehearsal was June 6, 2006 (06/06/06). Our first album was released in 2007. The original lineup was myself (Alex Cuervo), Alyse Mervosh, and Tom Kodiak. Dave Bessenhoffer joined in 2008. Tom and Dave left the band in 2011 and Rebecca Whitley joined at that time. Drew Schmitz joined late 2014.

Q: Who are your influences?
The Ramones, the Wipers and the Misfits.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
That’s impossible! There's way more than 5.

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I feel old.

Q. How do you describe The Hex Dispensers sounds?
Catchy songs about horrible things.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
We track the instruments live and then overdub vocals and solos. Typical punk rock recording process.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
There are so many! Radioactivity, Mind Spiders, Male Gaze, Ex-Cult, Wand, Black Bug, Crooked Bangs, The Blind Shake, TV Colours, Protomartyr, Nervous Talk, Modern Pets, Veil.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
No more covers! We’ve already done too many. The most recent one (Young Blood in the River) is on the new album, it’s by an Austin band called Knife in the Water.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
Europe in Late August/early September, and then probably take it easy after that.

Q: Any parting words?
Thank you for showing an interest in our music. We would love to come play in Brazil some day!
