Vanessa – She Set Interview…

Posted in Music with tags , , on April 21, 2008 by Jaybo

1. What is the She Set?

The She Set are a collective of girls who enjoy playing their records. As their is seven of us we all have very varied music taste, we play anything from the roaring 20’s up to current bands like Electricity in our homes or Hatcham Social. We also have a monthly club night called The Sect, the good thing about The Sect is that we really don’t focus on one type one type of genre, our guests can play anything from classical up to rock and roll. We also have bands performing every month. Next month we have Miss Something (sounds like Stereolab meets My Bloody Valentine but only better) and Le Tetsuo who have just signed to Parlour records should be a great night.

2. What is the future?

Umm…maybe building a She Set corporation…don’t really know I tend to live by the present.

3. What is Original Sins?

Original Sins is the beginning of an empire, their latest collection has been influenced by neither less than the birth of Christianity and Constantine the first Christian roman emperor mixed with current street mentality. And that really just says it all.

Benn from Ulterior interview

Posted in Music with tags on April 3, 2008 by destructioniscreation

1239663144_l.jpgWe asked Benn from Ulterior a few question….here is what he had to say:

1. What is Ulterior?

Ulterior is reaction to the bland music we’re force fed by TV, radio, adverts, media etc etc… the boundaries we’re forced to live by and supposed to accept aren’t acceptable. We’re bored of it. I mean, most bands are a reaction to something but I think what we’re reacting to, alot of other people are feeling the same way, bored and frustrated. People want more, we really believe that, we have to. There’s definitley an insurrection within the industry on the horizon, and we’ll continue to do what we’ve always done; making amazing 3 minute electronic, drum machine guitar music, if that’s how you want to pigeon-hole it? We are music you want to buy and a band you wanna put on your bedroom wall. We’ll never change trying to do that.

2. What is the future?

Building a studio, making music. I don’t want to look any further than that. Maybe a Black Volvo.

3. What is Original Sins?

It’s too early to pin down, but we’ve know the boys for years now, they’re the same as us except we got our shit together earlier than they did and we’re 1 year ahead… It’s a gang of mates making something from nothing. Street mentality man. It’s essentially the same answer as question 1.
