An interview with the Slovenian band Kansky should be on it´s place after their really good debut-CD in the style metal….or indie…or…punk…or what? August-2009
-The band started as an instrumental trio in 2005;Jure,Tomaz,Miha A. At the beginning more like a jam band and later when we started to knew each other musically we started to create songs. After a while we all agreed that vocalist would be suitable for our music. Soon Dejan joined and the band has started to developed. Later we started with first concerts and after a year we decided to record our work. While we were preparing material for the studio saxophonist Igor contacted us and the idea to add sax in our music was more than welcome. We finished the record in December 2008. While we were recording we also decided to add another guitarist and soon the last member joined: Miha L. Soon after the release of the album Poison Tree Records contacted us and now they are in charge of digital distribution. We played all around Slovenia, so we can say we had a great promotion tour round our country. Maybe, if we are lucky we’ll have a small tour abroad; we’ll see??
-Weird, but still not enough for asylum.
-It’s always interesting to hear how the others try to describe your music.
-It was more or less a coincidence - Igor surprised us; but the idea to add another specter was great!
-Live performance is always great, but the fact is that majority is mostly into mainstream, so we look like a gang of weirdos.
-The alternative scene now days is very creative, we have a lot of very interesting bands; Carnaval, Moveknowledgement, Zircus, New wave Syria, Elvis Jackson etc. – but this is just one of the aspects of today’s scene – there are many more! Mainstream is mostly boring.
-Mostly the facts – we haven’t visited it yet; we would be glad to know your country a bit closer.
-Besides ABBA we love Lowrider! Mostly rock/alternative scene – respect!
-It’s a nature’s paradise bordering Italy (W), Austria (N), Hungary (E) and Croatia (S). Around 2 mio citizens. Loads of very intelligent and creative people and on the other hand loads of idiots and weird individuals – pretty the same as in other countries. And very beautiful women. You must visit it.
-Haven’t been out from Slovenia – just a wish for now
from “Circus Kansky”- Ana Monroe’s street theatre performance.
Have you done anything more than the CD you sent to me?
I´m grown up with punkrock, how’s your relation to punk?
-It’s an interesting expression in the music; it effected all of us.
-Yes there are – many!
The first the last and the most expensive record ever bought?
-The last album I bought was from Bernays Propaganda (Macedonia), I think the first was LP White Album from the Beatles – don’t remember exactly!
-No embarrassing music in my collection.
-We support the idea of free circulation of ideas, projects, etc. – we must find another way to satisfy the needs of an artist – very important - art has nothing to do with money!
-I think selling records is the past – “live performance” is the future.
people hear our music – the better!
Futureplans for the band?
Something to add?
-We are glad you are interested in our music and gave us a chance to present ourselves – Thanks for the support! See you in Sweden!
