Black Skull Radio-interview in Spanish.

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.

Mpty Zine promo for Romania

You should know these guys already, we did an interview not so long ago. They are based in Poland and UK and they are crazy as fuck. Yes we are talking about Herida Profunda a crust punk/grind for the fine ears, for your chaotic thoughts in your head. Full of noise and anger with social and political lyrics for sure is something you don’t want to miss. Now i’m not too much into crust/grind but i must admit that sometimes you need this kind of positive anger. About Hellbastard, most of the crust punk listeners don’t need any presentation, they are the veterans of UK scene since 1984. It’s all about passion, energy, anger and respect for others. Crust punk to the bone!!! At the end to quote Herida: „It was and will be FUCK THE POLICE. Now, anytime, anywhere.

Interview – RedSka (march 2013)

redska_bella-ciao_EP-cover12x12

A talk with Fra from RedSka and One Step Records, about the new EP, new bands and other good and simple things. Listen to good music, go to concerts, buy a cd, support the diy and be good! enjoy it.

Mirceone (MPTY ZINE) Ciao Fra, how’s life?

Fra (RedSka) Hi Mircea, everything is ok, thank you so much for this interview!

We have our last interview i think 2 years ago, meanwhile you have this new baby: Bella Ciao. congratulations and any news?

Yes, the last interview was at the time of studio production of „LA RIVOLTA”, our 3rd album. Now is „BELLA CIAO” time, our brand new EP. This new record is for us a solemn tribute to a true hymn of the partisan struggle and resistance. The EP contains the ska-punk version of the famous folk song and also two unpublished songs: „SIMILE” and „LA RESISTENZA” (feat. NH3).

RedSka is preparing a new tour?

We are always on the road…in the next months we’ll be in Austria, Germany, France and of course Italy.

How things are for One Step Records?

One Step Records continues his way. It’s very hard produce and distribute independent music in Italy, but we resist. At the moment, we’re working on new projects for 2013. You can follow our activity on Facebook (www.facebook.com/onesteprecords)

Speaking of labels…what do you think nowdays about the internet and sharing the music?

The internet impact on the indipendent music was very strong.
The good impact was the great low cost opportunity to spread the music. Everything is for sure more simple than one time
The bad impact was the people can download the music for free, without any recognition for artists. I think is very very unfair to the artists.

I saw a lot of bands in the RedSka style, a lot of kids think that this is catchy, What you prefer 10 friends at your concert in a pub or 10.000 people in a festival ?

We do what we like and we prefer the „real” people in front of the stage…for sure the big festivals are very exciting for us, but the cool people could be everywhere.

I have listen latelly the new album from Talco and NH3, great albums. Give me a top of 5 new albums from you.

That’s a very difficult question….anyway we like a lot the new albums from FFD („Antifa Riot”), from LINEA („Revoluzionado”), the last album from Ashpipe. We hope to listen very soon to a new Los Fastidios album!

Speaking of bands what news you have about Atarassia Grop, you know is one of my favorite bands…whay don’t you try to put them on One Step?

We know some musicians from Atarassia Grop are now involved in other projects as Erode and Linea…We will see what will happen in the future!

How you can describe RedSka using up to 10 words?

Red-skankin’-punk-rockers 😉

The best concert ever that you have saw live?

Another difficult question…but I think one of the best concert I saw was the Ska-P concert in Rimini (italy) in 2010. The opener was RedSka…

A top 10  with the best bands that you still listen

This is a random-list…Bob Marley, Ska-P, Irie Révoltés, Banda Bassotti, The Specials, The Ramones, Mad Caddies, Los Fastidios, The Clash, Vallanzaska…

Thank you so much Fra for your time, please if you have something to add…

Thank you Mircea, thank you MPTYZine, a very good place for the punk-rock music in Europe.
Follow RedSka on Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/redskaofficial ) and keep in touch…support the independent music!!!
