7 Veils of Fantasy with Nonnie Parry - An Interview

Doses raivosamente estridentes e soturnas exalam das caixas de som durante as 7 pedradas do debute "7 Veils of Fantasy" do combo de Illinois, Chicago, Nonnie Parry.

Liderados pela guitarra e voz de Rae, o que sente-se é um darkpunk bruto. As sombras estão por lá, mas a angústia, o caos e a raiva dominam os sentimentos. Das sete canções apenas duas ultrapassam o limite dos dois minutos, resumidamente, a pancada é curta e grossa, sem firulas.

Dizem que ao vivo é uma experiência única, mas por hora, concentremo-nos no material de estúdio. Fantasmas de divas como Lydia, Debbie, Joan, Siouxsie permeiam o ambiente, contrastando com a loucura da massa sonora.

Uma banda para ser apreciada em volume máximo, é claro.

***** Interview with Nonnie Parry *****

Q: When did Nonnie Parry begin? Tell us about the history...
In 2012. After the end of the world and the end of a precursing band I took the money and the dramatics sparked the creation and chemistry of Nonnie Parry, taken from a film about a ship wreck. Our first songs were self-recorded in the attic of the place where we lived called Schwag City/The Egg and have since been semi-lost.

Q: Who are your influences?
JAMC, TSOL, Danzig, Metal Urbain, Grauzone, Christian Death, Charles Bronson, G.G. Allin, Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Velvet Underground

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
These following albums are sort of essential to understanding us although it would be absurd to assign them as our Truth:

The Shaggs - Philosophy of the World
Misfits - Static Age
Television Personalities - ...And Don't the Kids Just Love It
Screeching Weasel - My Brain Hurts
Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Nervous enough to lose control of my body and as soon as I figure out some sort of euphoria it is over.

Q. How do you describe Nonnie Parry´s sounds?
Controlled chaos, OCD music, sometimes loud, intended to be dark and cold like the virtual prison I sometimes find myself in.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
After trial and error we have found that "The Prince Method" or "Vibe Method" works best for us.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Molchat Doma from Belarus

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Usually not one to cover but if I were to pull the trigger I currently feel that "Do You Want Me on My Knees?" by The Nuns would be a good choice.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We would love to travel to South America or Mexico.

Q: Any parting words?
Watch your television before it watches you
