bsr4

This is our first interview in Spanish with Erick (drummer) from Black Skull Radio (punk rock from Mexico City). You can read the interview also in our new number 43 coming up soon. Stay rude,stay rebel!

 

MirceONE (MPTYZINE): Hola Erik, que tal carnal?
Erick (Black Skull Radio): todo bien hermano, ensayando mucho y dando el rol bro

Que novedades hay?
Pues estamos en una fase de desarrollo de las últimas ideas para detallar nuestras canciones nuevas y darle un refresh al acto en vivo. Ahora contamos al fin con dos guitarristas y pues emocionados con el sonido que va madurando dentro de la banda.

Vi que tuvieron algunos conciertos y cosas nuevas.Saldra algun album pronto?
Si, efectivamente tuvimos una gira por el bajío y norte del país, se llamó Sensacional De Punkeros, compartimos kilómetros de carretera con dos muy buenas bandas Mexicanas que se llaman Rotten(CDMX)y Hollywood Babilonia(GDL, Méx). Fue una gran experiencia que tuvo todo tipo de matices que nos acercaron mucho como amigos y como parte la escena punk rock mexicana, es siempre muy emocionante conocer personas nuevas y también conocer su visión de la música y de la realidad que se vive en este país. . Estuvimos en la ciudad de Aguascalientes, Monterrey y Guadalajara. Ciudades históricas y ricas en su contenido cultural y por supuesto contracultural. Y si, todo esto se verá reflejado en el nuevo trabajo de Black Skull Radio. Es necesario compartir el sonido y energía que percibimos en este tiempo desde que salió Mala Suerte Y Días Grises. Es retroalimentar el cariño que nos tiene la gente y el que nosotros le tenemos a este sentimiento punkrocker que llevamos en el pecho.

Para los que todavia no los conocen, podrian compartir algo de su historia con nosotros?
Claro que si, somos seis sujetos de la Ciudad de México que afortunadamente coincidimos en el camino dentro de la escena hardcore punk y punk oí! Nos conocimos y nació una amistad antes que la idea de ser una banda. Hace casi cinco años iniciamos Con Black Skull Radio, una banda que lleva acabo un sonido punk rock “californiano”, siempre de la mano de la música rebelde, música para darle voz a la gente del barrio, del pueblo, de los sentimientos urbanos y de historias que merecen ser escuchadas. BSR es una banda que pone el corazón en la tarima.

Cuales son sus influencias? Nombren 10 bandas.
Esta siempre es una de nuestras preguntas favoritas, a nombre de toda la banda podríamos nombrar a Rancid, GBH, Maldita Vecindad, The Suicide Machines, Ilegales, Cock Sparrer, Social Distortion, The Clash, Misfits y Kortatu.

Si necesitaran llevar con ustedes tres cosas a una isla que seria?
Jejejeje buena esa, obviamente un stereo, el disco The History of The Clash y un buen encendedor.

Nombren con que banda les gustaria tocar (nueva o vieja)
Tocar con una banda nueva? Pues no tenemos problema con los géneros, si nos gustaría un show con Cypress Hill, con Rancid, Con The Adicts, con Toxic Holocaust, con Wolfbrigade, por supuesto con Fermín Muguruza. Uno siempre quiere dar un show con bandas que de alguna forma influencian al sonido propio.

Saben algo de la corriente punk de Europa del este?
El intercambio de material y el DIY ha funcionado después de todo en cuanto al tráfico de ideas y música. Conocemos algunas bandas sobre todo por recopilaciones y acoplados que hemos recibido por parte de punx que viajan de Mexico hacia Europa, y de mismos europeos que también dejan discos con mucho gusto. Gogol Bordello goza de cierta popularidad pero también nos gustan los sonidos más underground, por ejemplo Leukimia de Hungría, Trottel igualmente de Hungría suena por aca, Hopes es una banda República Checa con sonido hardcore que en lo personal nos gusta mucho.

bsr3

Que mas haces aparte de la banda?
Pues lo común, trabajar, ver a nuestras familias, ir a shows, ejercitarse un poco y por supuesto jugar con nuestros perros. Todos en Black Skull Radio tenemos proyectos alternos a la banda, tenemos otras bandas. Eskirt (bajo)tiene un proyecto de oí! Llamado Los Villanos, Txop (guitarra) toca en Working Class, una banda punk oí!, Tío (vocal) está en Los Frankys, banda de garage Terror. Yo me preparo para salir de gira por Europa con Excluded banda de street punk. Son cosas que llenan nuestros días y que alimentan al BSR.

Podrias compartir un mensaje con nuestros pocos lectores en linea?
Un mensaje que le daría a la gente sería: nunca dejen de escuchar música, nunca, no tengan prejuicio por los géneros que la música rebelde siempre viene en infinitos sabores, hay música regional de todas partes que tiene letras caravanas de mensaje y sentimiento puro. Manténgase jóvenes en el ánimo y ganas de divertirse, que se joda la apatía y que se joda el Real Madrid.

Donde te pueden encontrar en linea y escuchar la musica?
Nos encuentran en plataformas digitales como Spotify, YouTube y en nuestra Fanpage como Black Skull Radio, estamos en Instagram igualmente y podemos enviarles un link de descarga de nuestro primer trabajo Mala Suerte Y Días Grises con una calidad de sonido bastante buena.

Gracias hermano por tu tiempo, algun ultimo mensaje que quieras compartir?
Muchas gracias por el tiempo suyo y por darle voz a la escena punk rock de la mera ciudad de los muertos, del DF para todos nuestros amigos de Europa.

Interview Scandal – StreetPunk Romania/UK

scandal by photobooking_net

MirceONE mptyzine: Hey Vlad, nice to have this interview, how are things?

Vlad Scandal: Hi Mircea ,all good thanks

I know that Scandal finished the tour in Romania, tell us a few things

Indeed ,”Payback Days Tour” was a five days tour in Romania and it was great  . We shared the van  and the stage with an amazing thrash metal band from Costa-Rica called Heresy and  B.K.S.  a crazy HC-Punk band from London joined us for the last two shows  in Brasov and Bucharest. The crowd was crazy at all 5 shows , a good mix of punks, skins , hc kids  and thrashers ..just brilliant.

Now the holiday seasson is on and everybody is talking about Christmas songs, if you will pick one song to do a cover what will be?

Ha ha ..I guess it will be “Santa Stole my Whiskey” by Jonny Manak

We talk some time ago about your top 10, something new? Can you please write down your favorite ones?

“Crim” from Spain …the new album ..amazing band ,amazing album with  and amazing graphics . From the UK I’ll go for Millie Manders and The Shutup , I have the feeling that they will go very big in the ska-Punk scene with their latest EP. So many other good new albums this year..is just too hard to mention all of them.

I know that in 2019 you will play at two festivals, can you give us more details?

Actually , so far we are booked for three festivals in 2019.First one will be Undercover Festival , 26/27/28 April at The Dome in London . This is the second time we are doing this fest , and we are looking forward for it as it has a really good lineup , a good venue  and  really nice people . The second and the third festival will be part of our summer tour in Europe , on the 3rd of July we  will play at the “Punk as Fuck “ a punk-hc day part of Obscene Extreme Festival in  Trutnov -Czech Republic , and the next day on the 4th of July we will be at Exit Festival in Novi-Sad-Serbia  ,both of them really fun festivals with so  many cool bands on  the bill. Our summer tour will include some  dates in Germany too, but the plan is to build a 10 or more dates tour in Europe including as many countries we can .

How you see the punk scene in Romania, now that you guys been for the tour here?

I think the punk scene in Romania is rising again.. slowly ..but is there . We had full house shows in most of the cities we have played..talked with many people , new faces and old  and I think it’s getting there. With so many people leaving the country I’ll say that the secret to a solid scene is to unite the scene , punk, hc ,metal , hip-hop..all together ..an underground united scene is the way ! I’ve been  listening  to  some new hcpunk bands like “Anexa Unu “or “FuckYou!Dracu “ bands with a really cool attitude .  Not too much street-punk or oi! though ..but I’m pretty sure that soon we will hear about some new bands in Romania too.

For 2019 you prepare a new material, new video, new stuff?

Yes..2019 another busy year for us. But before 2019 we will release another new single and video called  “Broken Dreams” It’s a punk-rock song with a few  drops of reggae and ska  and the video will contain  footages from our tour in Romania ..pretty cool..we hope it will be ready right before Christmas. A new E.P will be released in spring and  we will announce more details about it soon . We also have loads of shows booked in the UK for the first part of the year  , a mini-tour in Belgium and France in May and as I said before,  the summer tour all over Europe.

How the things are going with the Tattoo studio?

Busy , busy …but luckily I have the weekends off , this way I have time for my other passions , the punk-rock music and  the underground music scene . They are all  part of my life and I’m happy to be able to them all.

scandal_net_logo

How you will describe Scandal message and attitude after all these years?

We are still fucked up haha ..Just kidding ..Obviously the message is quite the same..real life inspired lyrics about us or our close friends, society , system or anti-system , still don’t like the authorities , still don’t like the cops .Most of the lyrics are in English as we live in this  country for a few years now and we are part of the UK society ..and we sing about the problems we have here ,at this time.

Did you think to remaster the old songs from Resturi Din Punkomat to do a best of Scandal?

Yes , we will actually re-record a few old songs in the next year. One of them , a big surprise ,will be on the next EP

Thank you for this short time and please give us a few words for the punkzine and for our few readers.

Thanks a lot for giving us the opportunity to keep the people updated with the Scandalous news . I hope we’ll see  you all in the next year.

Where people can listen to Scandal and where people can find you online?

Our album “On A Roll” is available on all the digital platforms , Spotify , ITunes,Deezer   , on our Bandcamp , and all our official videos and some gig videos are available on our youtube channel . You can find us online on the Scandal-streetpunk facebook page also on our instagram.
