Andy in Sista Sekunden says down
in the text that this interview was boring but we must hope that he doesn´t
meant that. If you read it it doesn´t feels like he thinks so. Hear him or
right said read when he tells us about Sista Sekundens history and why
they´re named as they are… …..november 2006.
History? Lineupchanges and so on?
-We started in april 2005. Tommy and Dempe have been talking about having a
band before and they asked Stefan and me and we said yeah. It have
always been us in the band. Before our first gig in july
2005 we have been recording one demo CDR with 7 songs(which noone was buying

instigaterecords.com, HDHC fanzine and a lot of other good things.
Sista Sekunden....a good name...is it only a name or is it any deeper
meaning with the name?
-We hade really difficulties to come up with a name and then we choosed
Sista Sekunden(The last second) and we played around with names like
Blueberry Snakes, Vilda Västen, I Ditt Ansikte, Flygtplan and so on..
There wasn´t any deeper meaning otherwise that we´re always out in the last
seconds because we´re a little bit stressed.
Is this the only record you have done?
-yeah, and the demo before but it's maybe not be counted.
Which is the next recordproject?
-A 7 which is called Vi Kan Allt there every member plays all instrument on
one song each. A new fullength and some compilations.
My review of your record is like this: SISTA
SEKUNDEN-2006(CD-INSTIGATE ISG 11) Sista Sekunden-Vi kan allt(we can
everything) it stands writen on thier logo behind them when they plays out.
A really good description on the group. It's really fun to hear Sista
Sekunden and many other groups today but there´s so many groups which plays
undergroundmusic out there right now again and I think that it will be more.
Sista Sekunden plays music which feels influenced both by Mob 47 and Minor
Threat and Posion Idea. You can understand here that it's really tough music
we talk about here. Good lyrics and even if they aren´t so long so can they
give us a wink about todays life in Sweden!.(EIGHT) 17/11-06 Comments on
-Thanks thanks! It feels like if you have understand it !
Have you got any other reviews? What are you being compared to? Which is
the most peculiar you have read about yourself?
-The most of the reviews of the record and gigs have been good. In the
beginning people aid that we sounded like Raped Teenagers and Outlast but
the new songs have a little bit own style over it, they sound Sista
Sekunden, simple as that. I haven´t read anything sick about us but it goes
rumours about that we go around in bad quarters and give handworks to old
Are your livegigs really lively things?
Which type of people comes to your gigs?
-Many small kids which likes Myspace, but also grandpa which gets nostalgic
just to hear our sound.
Do you play often?
-As much as we can. We did a tour recently with Fy Fan, eleven gigs
in Sweden. Fucking fun. We want to go to Finland and do
some and then it will be Germany/Europe also. But we will focuse now to play
in Sweden to young kids
Which is your strength live?
-That Dennis takes off his shirt and shows his tattoos. Come and see us and
you understand. Musically perfectionism have never hurt a bands liveset.
Politics and music, does it belong to each other?
-Not when it´s forced and something false but I would lie if I didn´t admit
that many punkband as I have as influences for my political views through
the years. Dead Kennedy’s is a a really good example on a band which did it
nice and good.
Best political band/artist?
-Yes, Dead Kennedys. His Hero Is Gone. Bob Dylan.
What influences you to do lyrics?
-MTV and life.
Can you imagine to record songs for a political thing or something other
thing you believe in?
-Of course, if all wants the same.
Is there any good bands in Sweden right now?
-Of course. I like the new wave of bands which comes now.
Förmögenhet, Fy Fan, Kamikatze, Vicious, Insurgent Kid, Svartenbrandt, Nitad
and so on...
What does punk mean to you…is it only a word or is it
-I think that punk is to be yourself. But not if you´re much rightwing. You
must be a punk to be yourself. If you get what I mean. Punk is to be punk
but with selfdistance. It's a punk like that I want to be. And then it's
good to see kids who buys the whole punkkit and shave for a Mohawk and
everything, that´s punk. And singers which have the microphone in front on
the PA and then it's gets really distorted, that´s punk. Or what, check out
The Germs, they´re really much punk.
Is it many interviews? Is it boring
-This interview feels a little bit boring(????? Hmmmm). Otherwise I
think it´s really fun to talk about myself and the things we do.
The question you never get but you want to have?
Please ask it and answer it
-How many sugarcubes is it in a 33 cl soda? Around 18 or something similar.
How do you think it is to live in Sweden today? Do you
think that punk will grow now when the rightside won the election?
-I think we have it really good in Sweden and 90% of
everything we complain about is industrialcountryproblems but if you see
what Sweden could have done so is all complains really good. The most
important is that you don´t only complains and that you try to solve the
problems or make interests in things….Look who's talking..
