BicahunaS comes from Germany, have a female on the vocals and they´re really good band in the vein of both anarchopunk and deutschpunk. Check them out here and it´s the singer Jannine who have answered the questions. June-2015

Please tell me a little bit history of the group?
-Bicahunas was founded in 2009. After many funny sessions and gigs we released our first album “Zerstören und Gestalten” in the year 2011. After some broken guitarstrings and drumsticks we released the second Album “Entspannte Hysterie” in cooperation with three DIY Labels Aldi Punk

Please tell me a little about every member in the group right now, age, family, work, interests and something bad about everyone? Earlier bands?
-At the next point we´re all full aged…
Jannine: vocals, I support old people in their daily duties and help them to find back a good sense in life, have no experience with other bands, I'm always on fire and likes concerts, festivals, beer drinking in the sun and cycling. I like the summer, which is too rare or not existing?
My favorite Bands in the moment, Panzerband, Beyond Pink,
nazis fuck off
Stephan: Guitar. Is making music since his puberty, he works for Red Cross and despite losing some of his hair he haven´t become any wiser.
Madame: guitar and vocals, got his short name because of his long hair which he made with soapsuds or just beer to a respectable Iro.
Today the hair is gone, but the name is still there. Embossed through his philosophy of life and his perspective of life he became a musician by himself and was often seen on different punkconcerts in his leisure time. Since two years he is suffering from multiple sclerosis, which prevents him from working but not from living his life. In addition he is the proud father of a one-year old girl.
Lars: bass and vocals, has experience with different kinds of bands. His first band was a fun-punk-band named “Eat my shorts” and so he found his love to punk. After collecting some experience in other music-genre like grunge and oldschool-hardcore in 2013 he became a member in “Bicahunas”. A confused but always reliable person.

Marco: Drums,our long-haired drummer, since may 2015, is making his graduation to sound engineering

I can hear both deutschpunk and anarchopunk in your music? Am I right? Favorites from the past?
-Rumors were afloat to this opinion about our style!
We are inspired by bands from A to Z. From north, east, south and west. Everything we heard somewhere or have seen live was an inspiration to us. Especially the records on our turntable.
Everything is imitated but customized with our own ideas.

BicahunaS are you satisfied with the name?? How did it came up? What does it mean? Why the big S in the end of the name? Which is the best bandname you know?
-Satisfied? We are always trying to cut above.
BicahunaS is an imaginative word which is inspired by the cult-movie “Pulp Fiction”. The big S rounds the logo out. It’s no solid component of the logo.
The best bandname for us: Die toten Crackhuren im Kofferraum (The dead crack whores in the cargo bay)
We think it´s time for us to rename our band to be satisfied and make serious music… Everyone will be happy! Hahahaha

What´s the best thing with playing live?
-Having fun with the audience

And where is best to play? And the worst place?
-On grand openings of home improvement stores, that´s the reason we never played on one.

How is to play this sort of music in Germany right now? The difference from when you started to play and now?
-Here in Germany we have the chance to focus our wrath on the injustice of our nation and get heard without fearing the judicial consequences, which is not the normal case in other countries.
We watched the scene for a long time and noticed that young people make their own scene rules to follow them, the petty is that the spirit of punk will get lost with this rules. On long time individuality will die. Strong rules can´t exist between autonomy and the fundamental idea of punkrock.
There are many more young bands nowadays which are touring though the social centers of Germany. Combining Metal, HipHop and electro together. After the shows the beer flows like water that will never change. Cheers!

How would you describe your music in three words?
-Wild, wrathful and direct

What does punk mean to you, is it only a word or is it a lifestyle?
-Definitely an attitude towards life

How do you see on downloading, mp3 and that stuff?
-That´s definitely nothing for me. I love it to hold a record in my hands and read the texts from the booklet.
Bands are spending a lot of money for records and after that everything decays heartless condensed on a hard drive.
Music belongs on to a turntable not inside of a smartphone.

How is it to live in Germany now? Politically?
-Things get dealt on other wises than they are spoken and that fit´s nearly in every part of life, the banks and the big concerns are playing strings with the politicians and no one say´s anything. This inhuman and xenophobic point of view has no end.

Is there any good bands from Germany now? Is the punkscene big? How is it in your hometown?
-In our hometown it seems to be okay. But we are living in the “Ruhr valley” and this is a union of at least 30 cities, you can nearly see it as one. We have many big and small, uncommercial clubs.
You can always choose where to go and spend your evening. The punkscene is here very strong and growing.

What do you know about Sweden?
-On the map together with Norway and Finland it looks like a lion.
And the capital is Stockholm!

Have you heard any good bands from Sweden?
-Of course, it seems that every citizien of sweden has his own band and everyone is doing awesome music. It would blast the frame of this interview so let´s name some of them: Refused, Asta Kask, Beyond Pink, The Baboon Show and especially Abba

Your lyrics, who does them and what influences you? Why not in English too(good I think, because I love the german punklanguage)
-Jannine writes the lyrics. German is her native language and so the best medium to speak clearly. Every day things are influencing her and she responses the drawbacks.

Is there any subject that you never will write anything about?
-I don´t want to determine a theme, maybe one day I will write about it.

Politic and music, does it goes hand in hand?
-Yes, of course.

Best political band/artist?
-International the Dead Kennedys with Jello, and in Germany I would say Slime.

Do you think that music(lyrics and so on) can change anyones life, I mean people who listens to music?
-Of course, i can´t speak for others but when I was a child and I realized that there is something other than radiomusic, it changed my life.

Your cover on your CD looks really nice, is it important to have a record cover which shows people which type of music you play? … Your favorite recordcover? Who does your covers?…
-At first I want to say thank you. The cover is made by a cityknown punkartist, it isn´t my favorite cover but our band is democratic. I think a cover should say something about the content of the album. Especially in case of political music. A cover with swords and dragons wouldn´t make any sense.
My favorite cover is from Mars Volta “Frances the Mute” because the concept is fantastic. And the covers of Push Head are also good.

Is it important to get out physical records of your stuff? Why or why not?
-Oh yeah, I already answered this question.

Please tell me a funny thing which have happened during your career and under some gig?
-Oh, there are many funny things that happen but it´s so difficult to write them down.

How does your audience look like? Which people do you miss on your concerts? Which is the biggest band you ever have played together with?
-We make music from the scene for the scene.
I don´t know if they are well known in Sweden, in the punkscene here they are „Skeptiker, Bambix, Cut my Skin, TurbonegrA, Molotow Soda, Emils“

Please rank your five favoriterecords, five favoriteconcerts and five most important things in life?
-My favorite listenings: Sex Pistols never Mind the Bollocks, Blondie "Parallel Lines",
Black Sabbath "Paranoid", Stiff Litte Fingers"Nobody Hereos", Slime"Schweineherbst"
My favorite concerts: Peter and the Test Tube Babies"Hyde Park Osnabrück", Blondie "Roskilde Festival", Hawkind"Enschede",Toy Dolls Ruhrpottrodeo, Motörhead "Area 4 Festival"
The five most important things in life: Health, family, friends, my band, chocolate

Is it boring with interviews? Is it much interviews?
-Not at all, but we are not answering every interview.
Many of them we have not given, but some of them.

If you could choose five bands from the past and the history and nowadays and both dead and living bands to have a concert together with your band. Which five have you been chosen?
-Iggy Pop and the Stooges
Joe Strummer
Joan Jett

Is music a good way to get out frustration and become a nice person outside the music??
-For me it is the best way

Which is the most odd question you ever have got in an interview?
-I don´t know, maybe this question! ;-)haha

Which is the question you want to have but you never get. Please ask it and answer it?
-Don´t you want to play in Sweden? Yes, of course.

Futureplans for the band?
-Never lose your goals and follow them.

For yourself?
-Becoming 150 years old.

-In english the logical meaning of these words would be: “Do as it would be done!“

Something to add?
-Fanx in advance
No, everything is fine! Thank you!
