Life Forming with FUSS - An Interview

O primeiro EP dos ingleses do FUSS tem cheiro e sabor de dreampop com cannabis.

O disquinho exala viagens sutis, sonhadoras e esfumaçadas, não a toa os caras foram escalados para o próximo Liverpool Psych Festival ao lado de gente como Black Angels, Telescopes, APTBS, Cosmonauts entre outros.

A música do FUSS é assim, brisante sem bad trips, como um bom baseado.

Acenda, aumente e boa viagem.

***** Interview with FUSS *****

Q. When did Fuss start? Tell us about the history...
Well it all began in 1984, after lunch, when Cormac, our synth Lord, was born. Many years later we all met in a chance happening. Dave knew Cormac, Karl knew Dave, Dave knew Tony and Bobby knew Karl.

Q: Who are your influences?
Anything from Elmore James to jet airplanes, connecting flights at Neil Young & Gary Numan airport heading to Bob Dylan's third eye.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
Songs:Ohia - Farewell Transmission
Gene Clark - No Other
Air - Moon Safari
Yellow man - Mr Yellowman
Andy Williams - the best of Andy Williams

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Have you ever walked up a set of stairs and thought there was one more step? Add that to cups of coffee and wrap yourself in a vibrating maelstrom of sheer fuss tunes.

Q. How do you describe Fuss sounds?
We work the songs out in a stripped back way, usually acoustic and then we put it together as a band and it turns it into what we do

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Pretty similar to the previous answer, we come together and individually create sounds.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
We dig new Holy Drug Couple, Holy Wave, Fleetfoxes, Froth and Mac Demarco. Locally we like The Vryll Society and Psycho Comedy.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
We don't really do covers. We try and bring our influences into music we make. But if you pulled our arm, anything by Prince would suffice.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We have just released our latest EP which is available on iTunes and Spotify, we are also playing Liverpool Psych Fest in September alongside acts like The Black Angels, SongHoy Blues and Pond.

Q: Any parting words?
Mac says 'woof!'
