Please tell me a little about every band member, age, family, work, interests and something bad about every one?
-We are all about 30 years old.
One is married and has two children, one is married, one has a girlfriend and on is single at the moment. So, guess who is who ;-)
Valentine and Andi studied music and work in different projects now.
Michael is an excellent cook and Mark works as an engineer. Maybe now you know which two are not married...
Well, you know the saying: What happens in the tourbus stays in the tourbus. So, we keep the bad stuff in the bus!
-The scene is very small. We don’t know lot of Swissbands in this sort of music. So, we’re looking over the border. Especially Germany and the North (like Sweden) is interesting for Prisma.
-Loud, loud, loud...
No, no ;-)
Energy, passion for the detail (that’s just one word) and honest could fit
I compare you to a harder Red Hot Chili Peppers...comment on that?
-Funny! Other people already said that too. So, there must be something.
Maybe because Michael and Anthony Kiedis have long hair ;-)?
-Audioslave, Oceansize, Incubus, Katatonia, A perfect circle, Opeth, Tool, Riverside.....
Put music into words is very difficult. To compare with other bands is an easy way to describe the music.
The problem is, when 100 people think about Metallica, there are 100 different ideas of their music.
Which is the most odd comparement you have got in a review?
-Red Hot Chili Peppers ;-)
You write on your latest record Demo,,, is it really a demo with so many songs or did you mean promo?(I mean this is too good to be a demo) ?
-No, it’s a promo CD. The music on it is the same as on the album.
-Yes. More and more.
Evelinn Trouble, Sophie Hunger. They’re not in our stile, but still great.
-All the time! It’s actually more, that they don’t know Switzerland I guess.
Where’re you from? Switzerland. Ah, Sweden, very nice. No, Switzerland. Hää?
-You mean this little country between Germany and Italy ;-)
We know that there are lots of bridges, where you have to pay a lot (especially for a nightliner).
And the beer is expensive. But the people are great. Especially the tall blond girls;-)
-Years ago, we all listened to Clawfinger. And of course we know ABBA.
Opeth occured to me.
And the great jazz scene with E.S.T and Bobo Stenson.
-The energy on a punk gig is definitely something you must have seen.
An the attitude to just go for it.
-No. Sure, the world would be different without any music.
We just try to give the people something to explore. It’s cool, when someone is telling us, that he still discover new things in our music. You need a bit of time to understand, what we want to say.
-Some bands use politics for promotion, like „Fuck Bush“ or stuff like that. That’s bullshit.
But when an artist stands up for the real problems, then it’s ok.
-We talk about ignorance, fear, people who never do what they really want, never say what they really think ...
So, daily routine.
-We are from the swiss german speaking part. As we said, the scene is small. When you write in English, you have the opportunity to play in other countries.
Led Zeppelin: Mothership
John Lennon: Plastic ono band
John Coltrane: A love supreme
The Beatles: Abbey Road
Frank Sinatra: In the wee small hours
Queens of the stone age
Rage against the machine
-First: AC/DC (Live)
Last: Nine inch nails (Year zero)
Most expensive: Keith Jarrett (Live at the blue note)
-Mexico and Bosnia was pretty cool.
-Probably Coheed and cambria
-Jimi Hendrix, Tom Waits, Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa and Miles Davis. Yeah, that’s a combination!
-In summer we play couple of openair gigs and in fall we would like to make a little Germany tour.
-Try to spend as much time as I can with music and people I like and inspire me.
-I guess you think of illegal downloads.
The labels tried to long to stop the free download, instead of looking for other ways to sell the music. Now, there are more and more people out there, who thinks they have the right to download music for free and don’t understand, that there is a lot of work to make an album.
-It’s definitely good for us. With the internet, smaller bands have the possibility to reach people all over the world, without spend much money.
-Take it easy but take it.
