Zineception #2 : Attila – Chiller Than Most

By Tieuma

Even though Ed already interviewed other zinesters, this new portrait is labeled as the second one because it’s my second interview with a fanzine’s writer, sorry for the confusion, but just think it as the second Tieuma’ style interview. I don’t know if all this giberrish makes any sense though.

Anyway, for this new issue, we’re going straight to Hungary to talk about the most Boston rooted european guy : Attila, writing Chiller Than Most fanzine amongst others things.

We did this interview through e-mail and even though I wish I could meet all the people I interview, especially for this kind of portraits, I can’t afford to visit the whole world, but I’m glad when I receive such amazing answers to my not so amazing questions, especially when it comes from someone asking them usually.

Living is hard and coping is harder : Rich Gutteriez – Busted Outlook

By Tieuma

Even though I ever loved the Boston 2K sound and think STOP AND THINK is a killed band, I always thought it lacks political awarness, and let me be clear when I say that, I don’t talk about the nineties speech or WOLF DOWN, but if you listen to bands like UNITY or even YOUTH OF TODAY, you can catch a glimpse of what I’m talking about : it just talks about intolerance for ignorance or Vegetarism but there’s already something more than “Mental Crew, Sick Of You”, and again, I don’t spit on those bands, they are important and what I’m saying here is I do believe this kind of sound deserve some deeper kind of lyrics, even though I’ll still go nuts on Rage Of Discipline.

But if I’m telling you all this crap, it’s because I actually found a band that sounds like MENTAL and think like ENDPOINT. Yes I made this comparison, go ahead and try to stop me.  Anyway, coming straight outta Cali, BUSTED OUTLOOK plays this kind of moshable but smart hardcore, and I had the pleasure to interview their singer, Rich, who loves his Wishing Well records and lives with a dog “Kilo who smells, but is a total sweet heart”.

During the interview, we did through e-mails, he threw me a zine explaining the lyrics, which is worth reading if you want my opinion, and it does look good ! I put a link to it at the bottom of this page. Also, I wand to dedicate this interview to a dickhead who will recognize himself if he reads this interview. You always sucked, you suck and you ever will.

Rich Gutteriez : “Our publicist is on vacation, as soon as they are back you’ll see us up in every magazine at your local GrabnGo grocery and deli. Expect a press release soon about our double LP out on Warner Brothers entitled “THURSDAY NIGHT CHAMPAGNE” The blogs will be salivating at the thought of posting our music videos. I’m not serious, Incase the sarcasm doesn’t translate well.”

I was a little bit confused to find zero informations about this band on the internet, except on their bandcamp. There was so little informations I even struggled to find an e-mail adress to interview them, but after rethinking it, I just realised there was a lot of today’s bands without much visibility online, and I don’t want to sounds retrograde but maybe it’s better this way, you know, carrying tradition.

As much as I try not to stick to the traditional “hey introduce yourself” stuff or boring questions about The Straight Edge, everytime I find myself stuck doing it, it’s like a bad habit you know, it always comes around. But the most embarassing thing is when you get a cool answer to those questions.

Rich Gutteriez : “Whats up Player? My name is Rich I sing and flail about, Jerm plays guitar and needs a haircut, Fred plays second guitar and has a dog named Peabody who just had surgery on his leg (send some good vibes his way), Taylor Todd (tater tot) plays drums and just got a haircut he is not happy with (did not tip), Eric Book plays bass and works as a warehouse manager for a coffee company, but rarely drinks any coffee (doesn’t sound very trustworthy if you ask me).

Busted Outlook began as fire in the collective mind of Jerm and I. We both are stuck behind the drums in almost every other band we are currently in and have been in (In Disgust, Permanent Ruin, Sourpatch, Ritual Control, Condition, Effluxus, Scalped, Younger Lovers, Sanctum, etc..) The bay area is hard up for drummers apparently. We wanted to make noise with one another and had the same urge to play some more straight forward ’88 style / early 2000’s U.S. hardcore. Jerm had some riffs tumbling around his brain so we decided that we would write enough songs for a demo and record all the instruments split between us two, I think I actually said “Hey I want to sing, but never have and you want to play guitar and never have, lets recorded it and if it sucks shit we will throw it out and pretend it never happened” On the demo I played drums and sang while he played bass and guitar, Fred recorded us in his basement in San Jose, CA since he was there we asked him to lay down some dive-bombs. The demo came out sounding not so bad and it felt good, so we recruited Fred immediately as second guitar, We asked my old time friend Eric to play bass and we both thought Taylor would be a great fit because he’s a sweet person and great drummer. We have both seen him play in local acts such as Stressors and Secret People and wanted to jam with him. We picked a name, which has no real meaning other than its one of my favorite Despise You track and it rolled off the tongue better than anything else we could come up with. From there on out it was set in concrete, we wrote it in wet cement BUSTED OUTLOOK 2014 WORLD WIDE HARDCORE PRIDE, watched it dry in the light and spit at the sky.”

Busted Outlook

Please notice those guys played in bands like EFFLUXUS or IN DISGUST, bands you should check out that being said. Totally not the same sounds and I’m suprised enough they now play this Youth Crew sound.

 For now on, as their bandcamp its stated on their bandcamp at least, the band got three releases the last one will be released on Warthog Speak the 1st april. I forgot to ask Rich if it was a joke or not, because it’s seems they are pretty funny people. Anyway, this E.P was mastered by Will Killingsworth himself, guitarist of ORCHID, AMPERE and VACCINE, amongst others, and runs Dead Air Studio which can only pleases me if you know how in love I am with ORCHID.

R.G : “I think Will has mastered a ton WARTHOG SPEAKS recordings, I mean i’ve met him, he’s a punk, he’s nice, he knows what he’s doing, why wouldn’t you go to him ya know? I’ve had a lot of friends record with him and its just always just positive feedback. To be honest, none of his bands are an influence to me. They are good bands, just not something I would state as an influence of mine musically. As people of course Meghan and Will are an great influence on punk in general they help with D.I.Y spaces in the small town they live in and although they are far from the HOT punk towns they still tour and contribute SO MUCH to the international D.I.Y community and are great people.”

Out of this trolling intro I did, I still think despite the sound, the lyrics of the band are really intelligent, about important social issues like deconstruction of masculinity or not blaming the victims of society. It fits to this vision of Hardcore Punk I’m close to, a music for outcasts and weird people that can’t deal with the society they are living in, with a Youth Crew sound I cherish, but to be honest, there’s still a lot of people in this said “comunnity” that despise this kind of speech and just want to mosh their way through, mostly if it sounds like FLOORPUNCH. I’m using this reference here because it’s the kind of bands I like so much but litteraly had nothing to say.

            R.G : “I had started writing a lot more a year or two ago, I mean really picking up the pace, I was writing a lot and it was helping me identify and heal from a lot of junk clogging the streets in-between my ears. I was told by my friend Dan Goetz that he couldn’t wait for the day I got out from behind the drums and stuck a microphone in my mouth. I really started thinking about it, because I always wanted to sing and I suppose I do have a lot Id like to say.

            I am unsure if the scene our music “caters to”, really WELCOMES our ideas, but what scene does? Lets not fool ourselves, punk/hardcore is not as far outside of the circle as we would wish it to be. We can guard the gates all day and night, but societal ill’s will always slip between the bars, no one has said anything negatively yet to me about our lyrics, at least not to my face. I feel like I’ve had mostly positive feedback.

            I do think that there are some things sacred about punk and hardcore, a few things you could never stick a price tag on. Its not without its flaws, but I do think it is a great place for freaks to rest or to learn, I wish we were safe from society, but not yet. I know personally that punk/hardcore allowed me to experience so many different people and create spaces that made me feel safe and gave me the tools to educate myself and try my best to make others feel safe. People are listening if you say something, make sure its worth saying please. I cling to the idea that I have always been involved with punk/hardcore out of survival.

            I think that is pretty awesome to be compared to that sound, because both of those bands have some solid riffs. I can definitely relate to the aggressiveness, but lyrically I’m not completely moved by.”

 But, I made myself laugh quite a bit when I first read the lyrics for the song Spitting Wind :

Breath can be forceful winds/
and words can be bricks/ You can let the
tears soak the ripples and mounds
of your cheeks/ and noone will blame you.
Find the angles of a room/ and see who
they point to/ and crash land into the
breaks of them/ It would be a shame to
live without knowing how much
ground you could shake.

Is this all that you can offer?
Is this all that you have?

we build and we destroy.

Because the first thing I thought was it looks like the Tree Little Pigs, you know this cartoon about a wolf trying to eat piggies but they screw him up by building badass houses. It’s not exactly it but you got the point across, and you can find it on youtube if you’re curious anyway. Damn, what am I doing with my life talking about cartoons on a Hardcore webzine.

DroidxRage : “Is spitting wind inspired by the Tree Little Pigs ?”

R.G :”No, but I do like that, I was speaking with a friend about writing and poems and really you can say anything you want, but its always up to reader to interpret and decide what its about to them, which I like because words are so amazing and can have so many different meanings and feelings to people. I make a zine with all our lyrics and explanations of each one for this reason, its hard to complete a thought and be precise in a song that is 1 minute 30 seconds long.

            I heard someone on the street yell at a friend to stop “spitting into the wind” because he was getting spit all over both of them, it stuck in my head for weeks, which I do very often, allowing words and things I hear to eat me up and deform and reform inside me. The song “spitting wind” is about focusing the little energy that we have left after doing all the things we do to just refuse the crush of living here towards the positive forces in our respective scenes. At times it seems that we’ve built a VERY UNSAFE call out culture where some people are really afraid to fuck up. Its imperative that we leave some room to grow, not everyone is born with the tools you might have, not everyone is equipped with a radical dictionary, we all have different experiences. Its important to call fucked up things and fucked up people out, I am no apologist, if someone is being willfully ignorant then by all means pull ’em through the ringer, but if we don’t create spaces where we are fostering positive change than what are we doing? Its about giving respect and appreciation to those who put themselves out there in vulnerable situations like booking shows/events, making zines, doing radio shows, and anything else that requires you to say a lot and be at the center of the mob at times. I say in the song “ARE YOU SPITTING INTO THE WIND OR ARE YOU SPITTING WIND” I guess in my head it means, are the things you ARE doing just hurting us all? or are you doing nothing, full of empty actions?”

Do you know which other bands comes from Cali and play politically aware Youth Crew fueled hardcore ? PUNCH, even though it’s more like Powerviolence there’s still a Youth Crew feeling on some songs and I know for sure one of their guitarist love his O.C hardcore bands. Anyway, BUSTED OUTLOOK remind me a lot of PUNCH, except it’s a guy singing and there’s no blasts, in the way they still shout out great ideas through hardcore and take shit from no one. And there’s plenty crucial bands from that area with the same stance, like OUTSPOKEN or INSIDE OUT for exemple, proving you can be hard and still talk about relevent things…

R.G :”I don’t know, I guess I never really looked at us that way. I don’t always think saying outwardly political statements or songs is very political. I think bands with queer/Trans/Women/People of Color and other marginalized peoples in them is VERY political existing in a place that has historically oppressed you in anyway it could is very political. I think visibility is HUGE. So I guess I see a lot of scenes doing BIG THINGS these days in this world, not just california. Things aren’t changing they have BEEN changed, people are just starting to take notice. All the people who refuse to move forward will be left behind and like the dinosaurs will become extinct.”

 …Or Sarah Kirsch, who was aleady featured in this webzine.

R.G : “I do know some of her work she played in bands with some friends of mine and we crossed paths a few times. Permanent Ruin and Sourpatch (two other bands band I play/played in) played THIS IS NOT STEP FEST at 924 gilman which was part benefit for her family. I had only met Sarah Kirsch a handful of times, but the amount of lives she has touched have indirectly or maybe directly effected the way I view punk. She has passed on greatness through the people she’s inspired to me and I think we should all aspire to that amount of awesomeness! I think she will always have an influence.”

Talking about those ways he view punk, I had to comfort myself about moshing, because even though I’m more inclined to stick with this kinds of views, listening to riffs like that I always feels like I have to mosh as hard as possible and sometime I feel guilty because you know, even though I’m not crowd killing, I still feel like I’m turning into a jerk and maybe some guy who write lyrics about crushing your man pride could help me out with my contradictions. And again I’m not sorry for this personnal turn on my interview ok ?!

R.G: “In some circles it may be unpopular, but I am a big fan of moshing. I hate crowd killing and just aimlessly swinging at the edge of circle. If you accidentally punch someone in the face, you’ve still punched them in the face. There is a place and a purpose at SOME shows for people to react physically. I was talking to a friend about it and she said the same thing I think. That the Function of “moshing” (LOL) is in MY EXPERIENCE a productive way to experience anger and make art (as painful as that sounds to say). There are usually obvious spaces where you shouldn’t try and catch a stage dive on to some folks when absolutely no one is feelin’ it. I also believe there is a way to be respectful of people in a sense at shows if you choose to dance. It is Functional. There are people who have a complete disregard to others well being and that I am NOT a fan of.

I want everyone to have a good time and express themselves as they please. It’s not just ONE persons space. We need to make sure we are all aware of the space we take so we can share it, realistically.”

This is the point in the interview where we talked about Wishing Well Records, which is an important label from O.C releasing YOUTH OF TODAY, UNITY or UNIFORM CHOICE records during the eighties, and Rich totally love this love this label, and I couldn’t go past that, also check out their cover of We Just Might to understand how much they love Youth Crew.

R.G : “Totally, Wishing Well Records is CRUCIAL!

I think its intentional, the aesthetic its something I’ve always liked and gravitated towards, I love youth crew. Taylor and I are the only ones X’ing up in this band.”

DxR :”Favorite Wishing well records and why ? Do you have it in your collection ?

Uniform Choice – Screaming for change is easily my favorite a big reasons this lyric “Your haste may cause regret

My voice will power on” I always really loved that line and its branded itself on my brain. I do own it.

I also love Unity and Youth of today (although were not in this alone is still my favorite)

DxR :Favorite shirt stamped wishing well records ?

R.G : UC “use your head” is the sickest. I also love the “wake up and live” Youth of Today Tee

DxR :If you could bought back to life a Wishing Well band, which one would it be ?

R.G :Its obvious UC is my favorite, but it would be cool to see UNITY, I wonder how that would feel to them to go back to the VERY beginning. I saw Insted play a few years back and it just wasn’t very moving, I guess I shouldn’t have expected it to be moving. It might be best for some bands to just stay in the history books, its a good lesson in impermanence and proof of the weighing power the youth holds on future generations. A time and place and an idea that can send shockwaves throughout history, its impressive and inspiring.

DxR :First Wishing Well band you ever listened to ?

R.G :YOUTH OF TODAY but it was not a wishing well release.

DxR :Have you ever heard about the Freewill – Sun Return LP that was planned but never got released on the label ? Do you believe it exists or those test pressing that are sold on e bay are real ?

R.G :Can I be truthful here? Is this a safe place for me to unveil how uncool I am? I HAVE heard OF that release, but have never heard it. I know it was released on CD in europe right? I also heard of the 6 test presses. I believe its real and I’d like to hear it I really love the first dag nasty releases and I heard it is in that vein.

DxR :Between the Wishing Well versions and the Revelation versions of Youth Of Today LPs, which are your favorite ? Do you think the price are justified on ebay ?

R.G :I honestly do not have a favorite. I also am not much of a shirt head/record collector so i don’t follow Ebay Prices. Aesthetically, I’m sure the wishing well release looks cooler to me at least.

DxR :Do you prefer Staring Into The Sun or Screaming For Change ?

R.G :Screaming for Change, No contest.

DxR :Don’t you think Bl’Ast on this label is kind of odd ?

R.G :ha ha! I do think its odd, but I’m guessing they might have just been surfer/skate rat friends which supersedes the edge I guess.

DxR :Favorite Unity song

R.G :EXPLANATION FOR ACTION!

“Explain yourself. Ignorance is growing larger everyday.

Now its controlling you in every single way.

Now its controlling you its bottled up inside.

It shows your attitude. Its something you cant hide.”

DxR :On a scale from one to ten, how much of a joke is Lost And Found records ?

R.G :Ha Ha! I have mixed emotions. I have some boots in my collection. I know its mainly bootlegs that looked like real releases. but, for those of us who cant spend all that time and cash flow tracking down the O.G’s this is a good place for us to get the classic releases, but yea I guess in that case the label is a big joke. 8/10″

 Here we are at the end of the interview, with one last question. Don’t forget to check them out and the zine about the lyrics they did, I’m glad there’s still band doing that kind of stuff and I hope it’ll be part of the physical release, like those bands tossing you posters or items. For their futur, they are writing an LP soon and touring the US east coast with Hounds Of Hate.

DxR : “Dead Kennedys or Circle Jerks ?

R.G : Hmm…. I think Jello Biafra is annoying, but so does Keith Morris and OFF! isn’t very good. I’d say sound wise Circle Jerks, GROUP SEX IS PRETTY AMAZING. Lyrically I thought Dead kennedy’s were mind blowing when I was baby punk, because I need that jolt of forwardness.”

Thank you for your time and patience man, and sorry for my broken english.

Exclusive peek : Hard To Handle

By Tieuma
You have probably never heard of this band, and you probably won’t if you don’t go to shows in Paris in the next few weeks, but you propably know all the members by their previous bands, dear readers, I’m giving you the first exclusive interview of the next Paris’ finest humoristic hardcore band : HARD TO HANDLE.
And to add some fun, I won’t do it in this pretentious and failed romancized style, but in classic Q&A, just for your pleasure. Enjoy.
Disclaimer : This is a 100% serious interview, no joke inside.
First, introduce yourselves, who does what in the band, and your previous or running projects.

“Mile Bomb” :
I’m Emile a.k.a Mile Bomb, I’m the guitarist who do the dive bomb, even though I don’t have a Floyd Rose, so it’s coming soon.
Rémi : I play bass and also play in several bands like Jack Move, Cut Loose and Summer House (new Grunge rock project including Ben on drums)
Erwan : I’m Erwan also known as Stanishlass, I’m the singer of H2H and I previously sang in xD.I.Gx
Benoit : Introductions sucks.
E : There’s also Hugo in the band but he couldn’t answer for now on, he should be out of prison in a couple of weeks.
Where does the name come from ?

MB : From life, which is hard to handle.
R : Or from ourselves who are hard to handle.
E : From a Otis Redding’s song, I always thought it could be a cool band name, and I already gave the Mad At The World idea ( From a Outburst song) to the band of the same name, but those “Sheitans” always forget this information. So we’re Hard To Handle, not to mix up with “Passion Handball” (even in french this joke make no sens at all)
B : This name sucks.
Is this a joke to have a local band whenever you need it or is it something serious, that’ll tour and all ?
E : For me it’s serious business, more than xD.I.Gx actually, which started as a joke. I’m trying not to write down too much dumb shit (which is hard, because dumbinance is coming back hard on me when I’m writing, maybe I’m not made to be intelligent), I’m trying to be on schedule with the lyrics and I’m working on it on my own too. Musically I’m more confortable with this kind of hardcore because it’s what I’m listening to on a more regular basis (Less tough and metal than xD.I.Gx), so I’m more motivated.
R : Usually, when people start bands, they want it to be serious and going somewhere (except for hype americans as RZL DZL, What’s Good). But there, with the positive outcomes and the 7″ coming, it makes this project serious and we want it to last. Well, we’re all in bands of more or less different style, but there, it’s something we all like to play in. And it doesn’t sound like Jack Move, damn !
B : Local bands sucks, turning out well too.
Playing in so many bands aside, how will you manage to keep this one alive ? What is the futur of all these other bands ?

MB : It depends on life and priorities, I’m also playing in Mad At The World with Benoit, Backboned and another band with Hugo (a.k.a Mourad la castagne), and I’m also playing in a black metal project. All these bands/project will put out a EP or a LP. For me, the most difficult part is being there for shows, mostly abroad ones. Dealing with it, with all the bands, it’ll always be hard mostly because of jobs, studies and money, even though those are not excuses. We’ll do our best and we’ll see.
R : Cut Loose is about to be done, and it’s a shame because there were people asking news about the band. Jack Move is going on well, there will be shows and new stuff early 2015. With Benoit we’re also working on Summerhouse, a project that ask us a lot of time.
But to know how to deal with too many bands, ask Brendan Radigan or Doug Free. I don’t know how these guys are doing.
E : I think the others bands will fade away when we will put out our first songs and show the world how it’s done. Modesty is for weaklings.
B : Futur sucks.
A website categorised your sound as Youth Crew, do you agree ?

MB :Not that much. We’re more into NYHC ala Outburst, BHC ala Step Forward and mostly angry stuff like L.I.O.N Crew and Internal Affairs. I don’t know if it feels like it, but we don’t sound “Youth Crew” I think. We’re TOUGH alright ?
R : I think it’s a website for “people who dig Beatdown hardcore” and sadly, when a hardcore band play a little bit fast, for those guys it’s Youth Crew. I mean, did I said Nasty was playing Sludge ?!
E : Unlike “Mile Bomb” and Rémi, I’m ok to say there’s a Youth Crew feeling, since the project was like “let’s play ’97 Youth Crew (The agressive side : Knockdown, Ten Yard Fight, Floorpunch, Lights Out for exemple) but with more hard hitting badass motherfucking hard mosh parts”. But as we’re fan of old school NYHC, I do believe you can hear some Outburst, Altercation, Breakdown and all in our sound.
B : Youth Crew sucks, websites talking about us too. (Much love man, peace.)
On the pictures of your first live you seemed a bit tense, was it hard ? Was it the pressure to play before Jack Move ?

MB : I wasn’t in the band yet, I was moshing hard and throwing fire balls in the venue. #Souley (Rémi’s nickname as it seems) was beautiful on stage.
R : With Jack Move around, who know what could have happened, an unplugged jack in the middle of the show, a banana peel on the ground or a unfriendly trip, we had to stay alert.
E : I didn’t feel stressed at all, I’m more comfortable with ths style as above-said, and I think you can feel it on stage. And for Jack Move, we just had backstage fight with them and we wrecked them. Especially the bassist. Only hate for those people.
B : Shows sucks, so does Jack Move.
Did you had feedback of your shows ? What was the people reaction ? Are you happy with what you did on stage ?
MB : I only played one gig for now on, and I didn’t had feedback yet, and I don’t know how was the sounds because i couldn’t hear myself play. But it was cool, I shared stage with #Souley (you know, Rémi) and he was so beautiful.
R : My girlfriend loves Erwan’s voice, it pisses me off. (The first time I met this guy, I was wearing a Right Idea crewneck, and the first thing he said to me was “this band is cool, the only song of this band my girlfriend likes is Right Idea”)
E : The feedback we had were positive so far, so it’s cool, it seems like the way I sing is better than what I was doing in xD.I.Gx. Still, I think we have to work on the righteous side of our live performance, we’ve been too much of thugz for now on. Oh and “Mile Bomb” have to stop being horny when he is on stage with #Souley (you know the drill). We understand him, but he got to move himself, as he does in the pit (actually there was a joke here but I’m sorry, I’m unable to translate it correctly.)  For your information, Rémi’s girlfriend looks like the first girl I wanted to marry, thirty years ago.
B : Shows, people, live, all of those things sucks.
For those who know or knew Mortal Kombat, what would be your finishing move on a HARD TO HANDLE VS. JACK MOVE fight ?
MB : A ultimate strike made of “Mile Bomb”, Radmou-Attack (What is this ? Who knows ?), #SouleyStomp, HairStorm and an impersonation of Eli Sémoun.
R : Or an invocation of a big Handball player Skinhead who wraps you with big chains until your head burst out : “FLAWLESS VICTORY”
E : For Elie Sémoun, I don’t know what “Mile Bomb” is talking about but I’ll still beat him up. I would do a friendship move or a babality to Jack Move, because I love them. Seriously though, I think their demo is the best thing to have been put out in France, and I’m not saying this because I’m doing a frituring on the demo (This joke already sucks in french but is literraly worse in english.) Listen to it on their bandcamp or youtube if you can. For all of those who likez da real hardcore.
B : Mortal Kombat sucks.
With at least three Straight Edge band members, because I didn’t check out the edge break news this year, are you a Straight Edge band ?
MB : Well, there’s only two Straight Edge in the band, Benoit and Erwan. So no, this is not a Straight Edge band, but we all like Floorpunch.
E : Word.
B : Non-Straight Edge people sucks.
It’s been a while since the facebook page is online and you made your first show, but there’s no sound on the internet yet, is it a Mysterious Guys Hardcore stance but in the other way ? If you put something out, will it be on Straight And Alert Records too ? When ? We need Xclusiv intels please.

MB : We will records 6 songs for a E.P in January, and we don’t know who will put it out.
R : This Jam is gonna bust the house down man !
E : Yeah, it’ll probably be on Straight And Alert if everything’s clear and if Alex is still up to it when he’ll listen to our sound.
B : Records and all sucks.
Even though you didn’t put out anything yet, there’s already two tee shirt on preview, do you want to became a clothe company as Cruel Hand ?

MB : Of course ! A H2H x Supreme is coming soon.
R : Cruel Hand ? Never heard of ’em…
E : Originally, we should have recorded before putting out the t-shirt, so we started printing (There’s only one of them, don’t believe the crippled internet), and we finally couldn’t record so we’re looking like posers, so it’s cool. We don’t care, we just liked Karim’s design way too much, so we wanted to put it out whatever happened. Maximum big up ratatata to the guy.
B : T-shirts are like Cruel Hand, it sucks.
It’ll be aggressive and provocative as xD.I.Gx or movie inspired like Cut Loose ?

MB : It’ll be more like : pure quality ala better than Jack Move.
R : I think there’s a draw between the two bands, they both win. Now kiss.
E : It’ll be more like Floorpunch’s final mosh.
B : Not like those two shitty bands.
Why there’s a reference to B2O (Booba, a french rapper), you want to be the kings of the game ?

MB : We only want to fuck the nurse, craka.
E : Goodboy.
B : This sucks, we’re already the kings.
In an interview for this webzine, one the guys in Jack Move cited Kaaris as one of the things he was listening to the most those days, you french rap answer to that.

MB : Gradur.
R : Stormy Bugsy, Rocca, true people knows.
E : Cyril de Louhans of course, for ever. “Don’t mess with us faggot” this is some punchline.
B : French rap sucks.
What band would you cover ?

MB : Rage Against The Machine
R : Rock & Roll part II by Gary Glitters (A corean band called the geeks did it once, it was a great idea, it was really cool)
E : We already did some, Old News by Lights Out, Sick People by Breakdown, and on we couldn’t do because the band still exist, Can’t Get Ahead by Step Forward. We promise we won’t do it again. I just want to cover The Hard Way by Outburst and I can die in peace after that.
B : Covers sucks.
Does your goal is to turn Paris into the new Boston or Antwerp ?
MB : lolilol
R : It would be amazing, but trying to turn Paris into the new Boston, it’s like building an aqua splash in the middle of the desert.
E : You mean leveling down to be as good as Boston or Antwerp ? I don’t understand, Paris on top.
B : Boston, Antwerp or even NY, sucks.
Classic but solid : any last word, something intelligent (or not) to say ? A list of French bands to listen to ? The rarest piece of merch you own.
MB : Check out JACK MOVE (to see how unworthy it is), Mad At The World, Backboned, Mind Awake (coming soon), Raw Justice, Harm Done, Hightower.
R : Lodges.
E : What about Worst Doubt ? “Mile Bomb” you dumb you even forget your own band even though it rocks ! For the rarest merch I own I can’t chose between my Stop And Think, Step Forward, Floorpunch and World War 4.
B : Intelligence, french bands, merch, it … ?
MB : Like me on Tinder.
R: Done, I’m waiting for your answer Emile.
E : Like me on avecsonchien.com. Thug Life.
B : Come to my shows, and everything sucks.
