|Streetpunkbandet Antipati sounds really good on their new record. It´s mostly Robban who have anwered the questions but some have been answered by the other guys too. August-2010|
-Antipati was started 2006 by Robban and Radar. We asked pelle and Johan if
they would like to be in the group and they wanted that. We recorded a bad
demo and did our albumdebute 2007 on Skins on Attack!/Bords de Seine with
the record "On Repeat". 2009 we released a 7-inch ("Sleepless", Distroi!)
and was on "Chaos in Sweden" and now(late summer 2010) have we recently
released our second album "Frågor Som Rör Det Allmänna" on Kjell Hell.
LP-version comes on Randale/Bords de Seine later this year. Since the start
we have played both here and there in Sweden and we have been once in
RADAR – Yeah, I have The Radars which is as a poppy Antipati and a little more. Have also some other projects going on, a singer/songwriterproject with some people from some other punkacts and also a HC-project with people which are known from other bands. You can never have too much to do hehe.
Did you have any other suggestions?
JOHAN – It´s not so tiring with that thing. Sure it is days when you don´t want to confronts with that but you don´t want to be confronted with anything that day. But if you have been around for some years so will you not be tired the nearest years either, I use to think that if you have looked like everybody else so haven´t you been a mate with regular people on town either – who is the people who gets around and become mates with all people. No, in that way they can really hate you if they want. Have the same experiences of the Nazis themselves if I don´t remember wrong and that´s in order,haha...
PELLE – I´m not a skinhead and have never been. But I like the culture and the music.
RADAR – Yeah, it was a very long time since I get in a fight just because of
that people have called me a nazi. Have been in more “fights” with rightwing
people because of the fact that you have become “a red one”.
You have a lot of politics in your music, is it hard to write political
things so it doens´become ”wrong”?
You plays together with a lot of different bands and not only oi/punkbands?
Which is the most peculiar band you have played with?
JOHAN – It could be something on Backbeat Club (RIP?) in Södertälje in that
case. Love them, but fuck which scandalous acts which have been there
through the years
JOHAN - Give or take: music with a message which makes life worth living and do yourself to a thinking person…so it must become lifestyle on that question!
RADAR – Musically it´s about pureness and feelings for me. And then it is so that Robban says that if you take the subculture to your heart it becomes a lifestyle and we plays, listens, travels etc in the sign of punk so must it become a lifestyle.
Kjell Hell, is it the perfect lifestyle for you?
PELLE – I
Pike have many good contacts and he helps the band really much.
Which is most difficult, to write in english or in swedish?
JOHAN – The most fun is that you once and for all make your stand on the songs you love and which is recorded bad or played and plays them yourslef…and it´s so fucking much better a Saturday at 1 am !

First, last and most expensive record ever bought?
JOHAN - First: Sahara Hotnights debut
Latest: Hotknives - Home, Bootstroke - Football, drinks and rock n roll, Superyob - Quality Street, Des-Kontrol - Behin eta berriz, Toro Bravo - Tavo vertybes, samt Badlands - Hands of time (I bought everyone at the same time...)
Most expensive: Must be The Blood - False gestures for a devious public (original+and a new one), £20. Not so expensive for that fucking good record...
PELLE – the first record was KSMB - Aktion, I don´t remember which year it was. The latest was Stick och Brinn - Håll käften, knäpp västen och köp kir för resten. I have no expensive records.
RADAR – The first record was Tiny tunes by Millencolin. I don´t actually know which is the most expensive because I don´t care about first press or something like that but I could say that the most expensive maybe have costed around 300 swedish krona.
The most embarrassing record in your collection?
JOHAN - Sahara Hotnights-skivan is gone for a long time ago so it must be "Halleluya - Songs of jerusalem vol. 3".
PELLE – I don´t say something so I don´t have to eat it up later =)
RADAR – I don´t have any embarrassing….or? :p
JOHAN – It should be on the bands terms. Piratpartiet(Piracylabel) can go and take some liberal over themselves. But I don´t want a record to cost 200 swedish krona. The interest of money should be hold short.
PELLE – The best things which have happened to the musicbusiness, All majorscomapnys cries, other people screams yeah. But it´s of course more fun to have a record in your hand than on your computer.
RADAR –Yes and I can put to this if we had have some interest of doing profit on our music so hadn´t we played punk!
Is it good for a band like yours?
JOHAN - Myspace is a good way for musicinterested to not buy music they
don´t have heard before. And if you don´t have the energy to look after the
band you´re not so interested and then can you fly away.
JOHAN – I´m not more enthusiastic than Robban. You vote against and not for. But after that I stopped reading DN´s sides about politics and Synovates have I become an happier man, anyway so doesn´t I know anything. A change of government is the less bad. As long as we have a representative democracy should you vote.
RADAR – I don´t know eher it´s gonna end. Personally I definitely see the
red/green as winners.
-ROBBAN – Forbid all religious practising for all time, I would force people in segregated places as Djursholm and Tensta to move to other places to be mixed up with people of different classes, ethnic and social background than themselves, force all the people who decides to live and be among the people they decide about and let them get the culture there in practice. And sink Maud Olofsson and Björklund in acid and cut Anders Borgs fucking hair.
JOHAN - Ditch EU, FRA, RUT, ROT & WTF and what they´re called, take home all ”peacepractising” troups from Afghanistan, raise the taxes really much for people who have voted for the liberals, take away the royal family, build more , f*****g apartments to hire, build ONE good place in Stockholm to play in, and take back Absolut Vodka from France. I saw Anders Borg some day here, he ate sushi., PELLE – Lower the prices on the SL-card, forbid guards outside places and lower the taxes on alcohol…. =)
RADAR – Go with immediate effect.... Hahaha.
Too much influences from USA.
Have otherwise a fine tradition of relative democracy, peace and unions…I
who never have experienced the old swedish folkhome have so much easier to
longing back to it haha. The question is how would the future be like and
could be like. .
JOHAN – The Clichés, Gatans Lag, Epidemics, The Lowlifes, Strung-Ups. And I
must say Projekt 9!
JOHAN – It´s use to be The Partisans - "Blind Ambition" for me, it´s most
For me spontanues I would say Blitz. But see the question above and change ”punksongs” against ” punkbands.
JOHAN – It´s very relative. I say anyway Angelic Upstarts because they have meant a lot for me. But also have they meant a lot in common because when the “usual” 77-punk was going to die and they showed us that angry and energic music is timeless, plus that you don´t have to have a superb songvoice to be a good singer. And then I think they always have gone their own way, they have given the boot to many things.
PELLE – Fix some new merch
-ROBBAN – Make kids, live good and expand my record collection.
JOHAN – Get some order in my life, go home from the pub with money left etc
PELLE – 60 years-party, 30 yearsparty, rest.
RADAR – Yeah…plays a lot of music, be with my wife, drink beer and I hope to
work a little bit lesser.
JOHAN - You are what you drink, and I'm a bitter man
PELLE – is it lesser than teaspoon it is a fart.
JOHAN - Yes.
RADAR - CHEERS!
