A really good band which came into my mail, not the band but the record is Loudmouth from England. I was “forced” to do an interview with this band and look after them everywhere…….august-2009
-We started the band September 99 when we were
and Dave are brothers and we've been playing music together since Dave was 8
and I was 10 so we got Loudmouth together when I was 17 and he was 15. Other
members were Dougy Giro -guitar and Droy-drums, who got replaced by Amos
about a year later.I Sing and play guitar and still do ,Dave played bass
then moved onto guitar when Dougy left in 2001 then Willis joined on bass.
-I'm age 27 somehow.
-That's really up to other people to say really. We just do what we do. I't's punk I suppose,the attitude/ styles. Someone reviewed one of our cds before and said we bridge the gap between Sex Pistols and Green Day .It's a mish mash of all our influences done in our own way. We do our own thing and have a clear vision of what we are progressing towards .
-Well we love the Clash, I suppose that's where we got a
lot of influence from.The Reggae/Punk
just proggress on that two guitar thing and make the guitars bounce from
left to right like a strobe light.I'm really attracted to dubby bass but it
doesn't have to sound like a reggae song to have that bass sound.
-Yeah that's right -we named ourselves after the Ramone's song Loudmouth-We sometimes cover that song.
-Eventhough England's given birth to some of the best Punk bands ever ,these days it's pretty shit-waste of time.The venues have 0 respect for bands ,the audiences try to stand as far away from the stage as possible unlike the rest of Europe.
-Thing's are alot better in England than when we formed. There's some good bands about now. the Dipsomaniacs album is really good. Gimp Fist and Keyside strike have been doing good stuff too.
-Burning Heart, Bad taste,The Hives ,Millencolin,Backyard Babies No Fun At All Hellecopters.The Stranglers song-Sweden. I think Sweden produces the best rock bands other then The UK and The States.The best in Europe by far. Most non English speaking bands I can't get a way with even when they're speaking English but the Swedish pull it off really well.I think it must have something to do with the English schools you have.I would love to play Sweden.
-(look above) That's all I know about Sweden the great music i was listening to when I was a kid -Burning heart stuff
-He's our mate and most of Loudmouth play in Red Alert so we asked him to come down the studio and sing on Brain Dead Society and he did. Steve has always been supportive of the band since day one ,he's helped us out alot.
-We've played Europe 3 times and the USA once,Scotland
-We did a full European tour in 2006 with Red Alert and played a couple in Germany and France since as well as two in Texas. We have plans to go back to the USA to do a full tour next year and hopefully do a European tour beforehand.
-Odd things happen all the time on and off stage all the time at Loudmouth shows-there are too many stories. The latest odd thing was playing in front of 20 odd dogs at a squat in France.
-I've asked myself that question for years. I think it's got alot to do with being from Sunderland. It's a dead end place-no labels etc... If we were from London or LA it would be a different story I think.
-For me personally.I got into Punk through Nirvana.I
would read interviews and they would talk about SEX PISTOLS and
BUZZCOCKS.Mine and Dave's Dad used to be in a Punk band in the 70's called
the REBELS .I was like,Dad ,can you lend me some SEX PISTOLS... and then he
got all his old records out.There were RAMONES, CLASH, DAMNED, LURKERS,
VIBRATORS ,the STRANGLERS,All kinds of stuff obscure singles etc...I became
obsessed.Then Kurt killed himself then GREEN DAY ,OFFSPRING ,NOFX,BAD
RELIGION RANCID and bands like that came along.
-This is so hard to do
-The First BAD-MICHAEL JACKSON
-Well since I don't have BAD-MICHAEL JACKSON anymore it would probebly be EVACU 8- ALTERN 8 some old rave shit pre NIRVANA days but after MICHAEL JACKSON days. I can't even give it away. Do you want it??
-I suppose it's good in away. I'm just starting to come
around to it all. You can download so much for free. But I see people
download most of my collection which I've searched for all my life in
minutes. I feel like alot of great music doesn't get the attention it
deserves as a result of all that. I like to have a cd in my hand -it's more
special that way,something to treasure.
it good or bad with mp3 and downloading for a band of your size?
-The BNP has 2 seats in the European parlement which is worrying that they've got that far.
-Racism is always around but it's not too much of a problem. There's no Race riots or anything-not in Sunderland anyways. We don't attract political types to our shows. But if we thought someone was dodgey they'd be kicked out. It seems more of a problem everywhere else in Europe.The venues would always have no nazis signs everywhere. I don't understand how anyone can hate anyone because of their colour of there skin or where they are from-I see people as people.
-We are gonna start demoing soon and hopefully we can start recording for the new album before the end of the year.
-The bands my life so I have the same plans.I'm also writing The new RED ALERT album to so I'm always busy.
-Think for yourself,seek out the truth and ignore the lies.
-Thanks very much -take care.
