Today I finally had the opportunity to purchase The War Inside Me CD, and I got curious about the Rumble 100 reference in the booklet. Can you share the story behind that (if there is a story)?
Ps: I can't hold it back but write that I think Dismantled is one of the cleverest contemporary acts in the whole...well wide world, as I know. So I wanted to thank you for bringing this thing into life, it is beautiful with all its madness and scratches.
Best regards, a 'fan' from far away
Thank you. Next time, purchase something directly from my store at http://dismantled.bandcamp.com/merch and I will tell you a story. Direct support means the world to me at the moment and I see no funds if my fans buy my albums from sources other than me directly.
Yes, I have it somewhere. It is a solid piece of work but with an obsolete lineup. I can not dwell too much into nostalgia at the moment.
Очень здорово, что ты говоришь по-русски! Я очень люблю твою музыку и хочу побывать на вашем концерте! В ближайшем будущем вы собираетесь в Европу? И еще нескромный вопрос, когда у тебя день рождения?
My birthday is the same day and year as Kip Kinkel. Google it.
I was nine years old when I moved from Novosbirsk to Tucson, Arizona. And... DA. I speak it fluently. :D
"The End" of Black Heart is from some sort of newcast I found about a killer in Ohio who hid his victim's bodies in a hollowed out tree trunk. The start of Whole Wide World is from a movie about a soldier but I forgot the name. I also happened to use the Whole Wide World sample in another song called "Simple Machines."
I have no opinion on the matter. Kinetic never was interested in booking us. The one time we were in Montreal, we couldn't even get an opening slot for the band Rotersand even though we were in the same city at the time rehearsing. When Rotersand cancelled, all of a sudden they asked us to play instead but no one seemed too happy about it. I would recommend everyone to focus on Terminus festival in Calgary instead. We had a great time there in 2012.
I'm a huge supporter of Psyclon Nine ever since I've seen them live in '03, before they were signed. The energy and intensity of Nero's performance that night is still unmatched to anything I've seen in the "scene."
I was like a third member of the band back in 2013 when I was helping Nero establish the new album. I had designed the new Psyclon Nine logo, cut the Kickstarter video, and did the merch designs for the Kickstarter, as well as helped with the incentives. I had also been in the studio with Nero and Chris Vrenna, hearing the whole thing as it was crafted. I was getting over something personal at the time and being there for everything was one of those moments that I'm proud to say I was a part of.
What went wrong? The business end. Things went south. I've helped Nero send out orders. It wasn't enough. The world is unfair. Habits are hard to break.
But all in all, P9 will always be a light in an oversaturated, hollow world that I call the "music biz."
Just my two cents.
