Contagem regressiva para o término das atividades nestas páginas, que há mais de 10 anos vem erguendo a bandeira do submundo dos bons nos quatro cantos do globo.
Quem chega e estampa neste momento o TBTCI são os hermanos de Quilmes, Argentina, Joint Ravolta. Uma clássica guitar band, como só, e então somente os 90´s poderiam conceber.
"Desgano", é o novo trabalho dos caras, um epzinho onde as guitarras comandam, as melodias chegam grudando na mente.
O processamento da música começa com a penetração das vibrações sonoras no ouvido interno, provocando movimentos nas células ciliares que variam de acordo com a frequência das ondas. Os estímulos sonoros seguem pelo nervo auditivo até o lobo temporal, onde se dá a senso-percepção musical: é nesse estágio que são decodificados altura, timbre, contorno e ritmo do som. O lobo temporal conecta-se em circuitos de ida e volta com o hipocampo, uma das áreas ligadas à memória, o cerebelo e a amígdala, áreas que integram o chamado cérebro primitivo e são responsáveis pela regulação motora e emocional, e ainda um pequeno núcleo de massa cinzenta, relacionado à sensação de bem-estar gerada por uma boa música.
E assim é a música do Joint Ravolta, explicada pela lógica biológica do ser humano, ah sim, escute alto.
***** Interview with Joint Ravolta *****
A: Joint Ravolta started in 2010 with the separation of a band called "Los tirantes", who last year have reunited under the name of "Líderes Espirituales". Two of the four members left the band and the style changed, so we named it Joint Ravolta , that was an old MSN messenger nickname of Ariel, our singer and guitar player.
Q: Who are your influences?
A: We have lots of influences, to name some: The jesus and mary chain, sonic youth, joy division, ramones, buzzcocks, pavement, the cure. The list could go on forever. From brasil we like the 80's post punk scene from sao paulo, specially as mercenarias
Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
A: I had to make a 10 albums of all time list last week for another interview, and I realised it's impossible to do it right, I spent three days changing it and, if I had to do it again, maybe I'd change it , but here are the first 5:
My bloody valentine - Loveless
Todos tus muertos - Todos tus muertos
Have a nice life - Deathconciousness
Rolling Stones - Their satanic majesties request
Ramones - Ramones
Q. How do you feel playing live?
A: Playing live is the best thing ever, everything else is just an excuse for it. I admit recording new stuff is great, but not as great as playing it live.
Q. How do you describe Joint Ravolta´s sounds?
A: The sound would be post punk with lot of distorted guitars, the new ep is a little more punk in the idea, but it keeps the escence. Our gigs are very energetic and noisey
Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
A: For this new ep we recorded a demo with a friend and then we went to the studio and replaced every track with the definitive one. We had the luck of working with very experienced people who also lend us their gear, Sebastian Cavalletti with the drums and Nelson Pombal with everything else. We chose this 4 songs because they sound similar but we have played them for many years. If we had more money, we'd record an Lp, I hope we can do it next year.
Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
A: we can recommend bands from our scene in Argentina: Telefonema, Juvenilia, Gemini, El enemigo, Estepa Lunar, Camelia, Los Bilis, La Carroña, The Freak Station, Dynammo, Los Parques, Callao. Some of them are our friends, and some are just people that we admire. Obviously, tomorrow I’ll remember other bands and regret not putting them in the list
Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
A: We really like playing covers, on our first Lp there is a Spanish version of Damaged goods by gang of four, on our new Ep which is soon to be released, we make a noise/punk version of viento dile a la lluvia by Los gatos (one of the first Argentinian rock bands) and a Spanish version of you say you don’t love me by The buzzcocks. So the answer might be that when we want to make a cover, we just do it.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: On april 12th, our new Ep called “Desgano” will be released on all digital plataforms. We’ll be playing it live on june 1st in Sala Caras y Caretas San Telmo. Meanwhile you can listen to “Hora de volver”, our single from that record.
Q: Any parting words?
A: Ele nao
