Tom Lugo do queridíssimo e predileto Stellarscope me introduziu a esta cacetada nos tímpanos que atende pela alcunha de New Speedway, Rocco o insano mentor dessa catarse musical concedeu uma entrevista bem elucidativa a respeito do que é o New Speeway e note bem fuzzy guitars, distortions fortíssimos e uma bateria altamente marcada não há tempo para baladas, aqui o buraco literalmente vai bem mais abaixo do que o usual, o novissimo album Supercrushesdiehard pode ser escutado na integra no http://soundcloud.com/new-speedway/sets/new-speedway, as guitarras comandam a festa e são guitarras e mais guitarras, coisa que o TBTCI mais veja, o senso melódico esta presente do inicio ao fim.
O indie rock da nova geração pode ser contemplado exatamente com New Speedway, doses cavalares de Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth e Pixies estão espalhadas pelo album, e note se você acha Yuck do caralho aposto que o New Speedway vai tomar facilmente um lugar cativo nas suas audições.
Liguem o soundcloud e aproveitem a entrevista.
***** Interview with New Speedway *****
Q. When did New Speedway starts, tell us about the history...
A: new speedway began in 2010 when my old band broke up. My old band was very retro 60s psychedelic. I wanted to do something different. Something more intense. So I started new speedway.
Q: Who are your influences?
A: Um...probably stuff like Sonic youth, Dinosaur, Black Flag, The Pixies, Spacemen 3, Red House painters, John Coltrane, Albert Ayler, Captain Beefheart, Cecil Taylor, Nels Cline. Stuff like that.
Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time…
A: I don't know that I could do that.
Q. How do you fell playing alive?
A: I'm not really that big of a fan of playing live. There are times when it feels like its the right thing to do. But shows and tours can be so exhausting and shitty. So I don't really know what to say about it. It's not something I do that much. I am putting together a new line up for new speedway, right now. We'll be playing live throughout 2012
Q. How do you describe New Speedway sounds?
A: I guess it's just punk rock. Noise with fuzzy guitars, heavy drums, and melodies. I just call it punk rock.
Q: Tell us about the process of recording the new album?
A:I don't know which one you're talking about. I have a bunch of
Stuff getting released this year. the newest album is gonna be called "supercrushesdiehard". I recorded it by myself after I decided to let go of the members of the band. It's heavy. It's not an etherial thing like the first record. It's really raw and dry and brutal. The songs are Intensely personal. It took a lot out of me to make this album.
Q. What´s represents the shoegazer classic era to the band?
A: I dont know. I don't really think about shoegazer. I like bands like my bloody valentine and ride. But I really don't care about the name "shoegaze" or any kind of scene surrounding it.
Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
A: Psychic Teens, Music For Headphones, Last remaining pinnacle, Kurt Vile, Sun Kil Moon, War on drugs. That's really all I can think of right now. I don't really listen to a lot of new stuff.
Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
A: I'd like to do an album of all Mark Kozelek covers. Or maybe a band like "suicide" or "silver apples".
Q: What´s the plans for future....
A: Gonna release the new record soon, then shows and tour throughout 2012. Probably be back in the studio sometime in early 2013.
Q: Any parting words?
A: Um...thanks a lot for thinking of me for your interview. Hopefully we'll do this again soon.
