This interview was placed in my thrashcan and it´s therefor it took some time before it was found….now it´s out with this really good german band. It´s Tom who answered the questions. Oktober-2016
The band formed up in 2010 to strive for world domination.
Chris aka CTB: He's the leadsinger and leader of the pack. He's the law. Whatever he says has to be done. Contravene is punished the hard way.
Simon aka Simmi Sixx: The Band engaged him for dancing and just looking good. Where the hell has he got the guitar from?
Tom aka Käptn: He's a samurai at bass. Don't mess with him. He was student of Chuck Norris.
Hardy aka Beef: God on guitar. You can also call him "fast finger". That's why he's also so popular with the ladies.
Ives aka Ivil: He's the master, giving the tempo. Like on a galley or warship.
Hot guys mix their sauces. It’s like a nuclear fusion.
We are on the move on behalf of the devil. He took our souls and made us to his special army. He gave us sound, drums, guitar, rock and ordered to go out and seduce the world.
To me the best thing is all the energy that comes up playing live and the connection with the audience. And the beer of course!
And where is best to play? And the worst place?
There is no best or worst place. Finally it's crucial what you make out of it.
How is to play this sort of music in Germany right now? Which types of bands do you have concerts together with?
It's god damn great! We like it, love it, like it, love it…
We did a show with "Bonecrusher", "Turbo A.C.'S", "Far from Finished", “Sonny Vincent” and two shows with "Poison Idea"... that was really great. At this point we wanna greet our very dear friends “Poison Heart”, a really cool Punk’n’Roll band from Poland. We did crazy things together.
Kick Ass RocknRoll
What does punk mean to you, is it only a word or is it a lifestyle?
It’s a lifestyle! Definitely. Fuck the slipslop about authenticity. Rules are for bourgeois.
Be what you wanna be, do what you have to do, go your own way. That’s punkrock!
How do you see on downloading, mp3 and that stuff?
Great! The possibilities to make our music known to many people worldwide through downloading. That’s pretty good.
Due to the fact that a lot of refugees came to Germany last year, we have a big and growing right winged movement here which is sometimes pretty scary. It seems those people just waited for an occasion to burst out into hate. I wish I could put all this Nazi scum into prison and throw away the key.
Time for namedropping. Elvis!
If you wanna get to know the punkrockscene in Berlin, go, visit Kreuzberg.
Sweden seems to be a very liberal country and a good place to live. Some of my all time favourite bands come from Sweden. All the Swedish people I met have been very kind and friendly. You have expensive beer and you like rotten fish (Surströmming)
Have you heard any good bands from Sweden?
Yeah, too many to mention! For example Entombed, Backyard Babies, The Nomads, Chuck Norris Experiment, Psychotic Youth, The Turpentines, The Bones, Hellacopters, Death Breath, The Solution, Imperial State Electric, Mary’s Kids and ABBA!
It doesn’t depend on your age to write good lyrics. But for me Songs in German language sound shit, except you are doing „Beat-Music“.
Bees and flowers and stock trading!
We’re a non political band. But maybe, next we do a political song, It should be about nazis that we fuck in the ass.
Early Dead Kennedys
Do you think that music (lyrics and so on) can change anyones life, I mean people who listens to music?
Yes, music has got enormous power.
With our music we subject people and make them to our humble servants. It’s like a brainwash.
Don’t know. We stole the cover from a famous punkrock band. Ha!!!
Who does your covers?
Simmi. When he does not rehearse for a new dance-choreography he does graphic things.
And do you have any good recordstores in your hometown?
Of course. Berlin got a lot of great record stores. Core Tex, for example. You can buy our record there.
I like Vinyl the most. To watch the cover, read the lyrics, hear the warm and scratchy sound. It’s orgasmic.
We are a serious band. We do not have any fun! Amusement will be punished.
People who come to our shows look different. Women, men, lesbians, gays, prostitutes, sailors, drugdealers, men oft the mob, to name only a few. But mostly they only come to get a good head, after the show and then drink up all our backstage-beer.
The records are:
Hard-Ons: ‘Alfalfa males’
Slayer: ‘Reign in blood’
Slayer: ‘Reign in blood’
Poison Idea: ‘Feel the darkness’
Rocket from the Crypt: ‘All systems go 2’
The concerts are:
Hard-Ons at Wild at heart/Berlin in 2010
Minstry in Hamburg 1992
Psychotic Youth in Kiel in 1996
Poison Idea at Wild at heart/Berlin in 2016
AC/DC at Columbiahalle/Berlin in 2003
The most important things in my life:
Family and friends
The most expensive record I ever bought was a one-sided fan club 7” from Rocket From The Crypt. It was 50,- € back then, but it’s now worth about 300,- $.
Intervies are great fun. To tell all that freaky stories and fool around. We like it.
Tom Robinson Band, The Communards, DAF, Village People, Judas Priest, Turbonegro
Yes, of course. Have you ever met nicer persons than us?
Are you single?
How you ever look so drop-dead gorgeous?
The world domination.
To talk less trash.
As Mahatma Gandhi said: “Fuck Off!!”
Something to add?
Thanx for the interview and it would be great if we’d make it to your nice country and rock your Swedish asses off!
