Em alguns momentos se faz mais do que necessário apenas o rock´n´roll tribal, brutal, nu e cru, sem firulas, sem efeitos, sem modernices, sem interferências, saca?
E para estes momentos acabamos recorrendo a pedras fundamentais da música, leia-se, Blue Cheer, Stooges, MC5, ou Sabbath, mas veja bem, experimenta buscar no submundo dos bons sons o discípulo correto desses mestres, e o TBTCI esta aqui pra facilitar sua pesquisa.
Vá direto ao ponto, Mind Meld, diretamente de Los Angeles, e mais cirurgicamente seu debute homônimo, lançado há pouco mais de 1 mês atras.
Encha o copo com sua bebida favorita, busque seu psicotrópico predileto, aumento o som e aproveite. Mind Meld é, música alta, pesada, para momentos de exorcismos pessoais
***** Interview with Mind Meld *****
Bert and Erik were in two great bands together, Jesus Sons and Hoover III, and I'd just finished up with Endless Bummer. We were all pals jamming at Permanent Records after the shop closed, just for fun. All of us vibed so well together that a band just happened. Happy accident!
Q: Who are your influences?
Stooges, Hawkwind, Bowie, Blue Cheer, Sabbath, MC5...we could go on here forever.
Q. How do you feel playing live?
We are at our best live. Our minds meld in that setting and we all become one wild, destructive and engaging beast.
Q. How do you describe Mind Meld sounds?
We are constantly at 11! Our songs are a mixture of our influences and our environment. We strive to get everyone high enough to join us in outer space!
Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
LA has so many rad bands. Check out Walter, Prettiest Eyes, Babylon, Frankie And The Witch Fingers, Flat Worms, OGOD...we could go on forever here too.
Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
We do a cover of Edgar Broughton's "Why Can't Somebody Love Me" and a blown out version of "Skies Above" by The Equals. Lately we have dabbled with an MC5 cover of a Troggs song. We like the idea of covering a cover. Interpreting and interpretation if you will, haha!
Q: What are your plans for the future?
Make more records, smoke more weed and play more shows!
Q: Any parting words?
Creativity thrives in the face of adversity. We're dealing with some heavy stuff here in the US, but that's even more reasons to... KICK OUT THE JAMS, MOTHERFUCKERS!
