NASTY PIECE OF TRASH – interview with the Sloks

RNR666 has been organizing concerts in Hungary for 15 years, but the first tour! 10 days, 10 concerts, 5 countries… and the finalcountdown has started. So we talk a bit whit the amazing SLOKS about everything what you must to know. Here we go!

– When did you start the band and how did you meet. Are you all from Torino?

– We start the band end of 2014, first we play I and first drummer Peter Chopstik, and one night i meet Claudy in a bar and i ask if she want come to see and play…now we are, Peter left the band first of 2019 and now we have Tony Machete. Yes Me and Tony we live in Turin Claudy she live in Novara.

– Is Torino a good place? I’m just asking because, so far, I’ve met great people from there(VERY great!) Movie Star Junkies/Lame guys and Paula and Ali from JC Satán. Are there many clubs for RnR gigs?
– Torino is a nice quite Town ahahahahahaha, not so many clubs for RNR now, Blah Blah, sPAZIO 211, Magazzino sul po.

– Can you recommend Turinian bands old or new ones. (i know Stefanos projects: Lame,Movie Star Junkies, Talky Nerds)?
Yes all the bands from Stefano are good, I like LAMEMOVIE STAR JUNKIESKiller KlownCani Sciorri they are not from Turin but near.
 
– I love the story that Beat Man wrote in the promo stuff you met. How did you remember? “Beat Man : i saw them on a Local Alternative Festival in Italy for the first time, it was so Destructive and Suicidal Dangerous and amazing eye catching the same time, the Female Singer Ivy Claudy almost killed herself in her act strangling herself with the microphone cable and screamed as loud that she spit blood on the same time Buddy Fuzz wanked constantly his guitar overdosing totally distorting and endless feedback they were so Negative and creative the same time .. i t was defiantly way too much for the audience and most of them left immediately except Us … and they had to open the festival anyways hahaha .. i was blown away of the energy the band has and the complex personalities of the band members, so i send them To Lo Spider in Toulouse to his Swampland Studios (Destination Lonely, the Monsters, Lame, Roy and the Devils Motorcycle, the Lullies) to record a whole album for Voodoo Rhythm records, and here we go .. this is one Nasty Piece of TRASH “
-The story is true i remember I was really excited and we don’t care to play first band, Claudy she don’t understand Beat Man was here so we are lucky ahahahahaha

– Voodoo Rhythm Records one of the best labels in Europe. Were you very happy with the contract? The Pussy Warmers guys said they were jumping up and down with the pleasure of Voodoo releasing their record. Hahahaha!
-Oh we are very happy and when i recived the email from Reverend Beatman I was a little be confused I jump on the chair in my office and the people work with me they think I’m crazy, after I call immediately Claudy and talk with her, she shouted with joy!
 
– Btw, what are our three favorites Voodoo artists and three favorites Voodoo albums? 
– I think the Voodoo Rhythm RDS produce many bands, all are good, I like Destination Lonely, (Lo Spider recording us), The JacketsROY & THE DEVIL’S MOTORCYCLEThe MONSTERSDELANEY DAVIDSON all catalogs.
 
– You changed your drummer recently (when exactly?). Why, and who is your new drummer?
Its a long story, Peter left us after the album come out he as problem to come on tour (work), so we start to find new drummer but its really difficult because all the drummer we want and we know are engaged in other projects so for the first tour after release of the album we take a shift worker, and after we ask Claudy friends he come with us in Japan, but I summer I meet Tony we like each others and I ask to him would like to play drums with Sloks?
And Now is a drummer!
 
– Last October you made a Japanese tour.  How did this work out? What was it like? Something good, something weird that happened there? It might be an interesting place, but it is a little scary for me personally.
– Ohhhh was AMAZING!!! Really It happened that a Japanese promoter saw that we played with Jon Spencer & Hitmakers and wrote to us asking if we wanted to play in Japan …all was good the people its really nice and very excited. We play in a festival Halloween Ball in Tokyo was crazy and super, with MummiesGuitar WolfGasoline super weird. Fantastic clubs, we play in 2 clubs at 5th Floor for me was like in Blade runner movie. Was a fantastic experience!!! Not scary very friendly people and place, super food, and many many vintage guitar shop!!!!And thanks to Keizo from the King Brothers support us for all the backline.
 
– Cool local bands there?
We play with a fantastic bands King Brothers, 50/5O’s, Blue Valley, NAkidZ  and many more.
 
– How did you see the audience there alredy knows you, or were you completely unfamiliar with them?
– The audile was very good but they don’t know us, but after many ask to us to comeback.
 
– AND!!! What is means Sloks and what is what is the correct pronunciation?
– Sloks come from the first movie of Jon Landies a parody of king kong very primitives and degenerate primate (the real name the film is SCHLOCK) but we changed in SLOKS!!!!
 
– You will have a tour this month in Eastern Europe. Have you played here before?  Or were you in the East before as a tourist?
– In east europe its a first time!!! We never came, I don’t know if Claudy and Tony they come like tourist…
 
– Do you know bands from East Europe?
– I know the Moron’s Morons
 
– How would you introduce bands to people who haven’t heard of you yet?
– Easy, primitive, degenerate, rock’n’roll garage lofi punk, nasty piece of TRASH !!!!!
 
– What are your main influences?

– My influences are 60’s garage from the USA all the band from the Crypt records,rock’n’roll from the 50’s all the scene garage from the 80’s Jazz Mingus, Chet Baker . this is the first names come to my min.

 

– On one promo photo Claudy wears Fuck Emos T-shirs. Is that old US/TX punk band? She likes it?

All about the Sloks’s Holy Motor album

Brand new band in the Voodoo stable, first album and here right away! Well deserved! It immediately made it to my favorites from this publisher, right next to Come N ‘Go, Roy & DMC and Destination Lonely. Their story of how the publisher and the band found each other is already pretty good. Beat Man was attending some festival in Italy where Sloks opened the whole event. That early, the audience was not yet prepared for Buddy Fuzz‘s manic feedback orgie, for the drummer’s primitive beats, and for the singer’s actions that could have been interpreted as attempts of suicide. Accordingly, the tent where they played got emptied quickly; everyone went for a drink or who knows what. Not so with Beat Man, who was so impressed by the band’s negative, destructive, self-threatening energies that he immediately offered them a contract after the concert and sent them to Lo Spider‘s studio in France to record a full album! The end result speaks for itself; it has become the best debut album of the last few years (at least for me). It’s rock and roll, after all, but an extreme, fucked up version of it that is totally not there to provide some light entertainment. I can’t make my mind up whether their lyrics are about using hard drug or deep depression, but they are about some fucking heavy shit for sure. I can liken their stage performance to something like a person in need who is unable to ask for help, or if she finally does, she does it in such a way that the first thought in most people is to flee from her as fast and far as possible.

Zsírúj banda a Voodoo istállóban, első lemez és egyből itt! Teljesen megérdemelve! Nekem egyből a kedvenceim közé léptek a kiadónál a Come N’ Go, a Roy & DMC és a Destination Lonely mellé közvetlenül. Már a sztori is elég jó, ahogy egymásra találtak (mármint a kiadó és a zenekar). Beat Man valami fesztiválon volt Olaszországban, ahol a Sloks volt az egész rendezvény nyitó produkciója. A fesztivál közönsége kora este még nem volt felkészülve Buddy Fuzz mániákus feedback orgiájára, a dobos primitív ütemeire, na meg az énekesnő öngyilkossági kísérletnek is felfogható színpadi akcióira. Ennek megfelelően ki is ürült a sátor ahol játszottak, mindenki húzott sört venni vagy mittudomén. Nem így Beat Man, akit a zenekarból áradó negatív, destruktív, önveszélyes energiák annyira lenyűgözték, hogy egyből a koncert után szerződést ajánlott nekik és Franciaországba küldte őket Lo Spider stúdiójába, hogy vegyenek föl egy teljes lemezt!
A végeredmény magáért beszél, szerintem az utóbbi pár év legjobb bemutatkozó lemeze lett ez (mánmint nekem). Végül is rock n roll ez, de annak a szélsőséges, elbaszott, totálisan nem a könnyed szórakoztatást elérni kívánó ága. A szövegekről nem tudom eldönteni, hogy a keménydrog használatról vagy a mélydepresszióról szólnak-e, de kibaszott súlyosak egytől egyig az biztos. Az előadásmód meg olyasmi, mint egy segítségre szoruló aki képtelen segítséget kérni, illetve ha mégis megteszi, azt olyan módon, hogy az első gondolat a legtöbb emberben az legyen, hogy meneküljön a közeléből minél előbb, jó messzire.

NO FUCKIN MAKE UP!

Ultra primitive destructive Italian garage punkers SLOKS have recently released their new album A KNIFE IN YOUR HAND on VOODOO RHYTHM RECORDS. Label boss Rev. Beatman says about them:

I saw them on a local alternative festival in Italy for the first time. It was so destructive and suicidal dangerous and amazing eye catching the same time. The female singer Ivy Claudy almost killed herself in her act strangling herself with the microphone cable and screamed as loud that she spit blood on the same time, Buddy Fuzz wanked constantly his guitar overdosing totally distorting and endless feedback. They were so negative and creative the same time… It was defiantly way too much for the audience and most of them left immediately except us… and they had to open the festival anyways hahaha… I was blown away of the energy the band… Their second album is another nasty piece of trash!!!!! Enjoy and book them if you wanna experience a live madness massacre!!!!!

SLOKS ON RNR666

Hét perc harminc másodperc prédikáció, kemény drogok és mélydepresszió – LEMEZAJÁNLÓ CSÜHESTŐL

Reverend Beat-Man & Izobel Gracia: Baile Bruja Muerto (2019 / Voodoo Rhythm Records)

Már megint egy jó, sőt nagyon jó Reverend Beat-Man lemez! Beat-Man bizonyos szempontból olyan, mint a Ramones vagy a Motörhead. Aki úgy rajongója neki is, mint az említett két zenekarnak, mint például én, az kurvajól mulat magában, mikor felületes illetők olyanokat mondanak, hogy – Ja. Jó, meg minden, de ugyanolyan, mint a többi. Ilyenkor az ember mit tud csinálni? Legyint, oszt jólvan. Végül is mindegy. Amúgy ennek az a veleje, hogy az olyan figurák, akiknek ennyire karakteres megszólalásuk és jelenlétük van, azok egyszerűen rá égetik magukat az adott produkcióra. Ezen a lemezen például van három feldolgozás is, három igen különböző előadótól, úgy mint: The DoorsVenom, és egy mexikói nőjogi harcos, Chavela Vargas (1919-2012). És egyik sem lóg ki a lemezről, full Beat-Man mindhárom. 

Na, de ki az az Izobel Gracia? Ő egy los angeles-i billentyűs/dobos/énekes, akivel Beat-Man egy ideje turnézik és a tavalyi Rev. Beat-Man and The New Wave album több számában is közreműködött (Hozzánk legközelebb , Bécsben a Chelsea-ben lehet majd őket  elcsípni április 27.én!).

10 nagyon állat Rock n Roll-Trash-Garage-Cumbia dal van a lemezen, de a 11., a hét és félperces prédikáció, ami a legjobb, ahol a Tisztelendő Úr kifejti fejlődés >>> visszafejlődés elméletét. Na, az tényleg szép! Nem találom a neten ezt a számot, de Lavór és állandó műsorvezetőtársa már lejátszotta
a Kezek a sebekben 4. adásban:

Két videó is készült az albumhoz:

KILLBONOCLUB # 17

PLAYLIST SERIES

is an eclectic mix of hit songs from the latest records of the least labels.

Please open your mind and push that start button now!

 

The making of the album VOUS ET NOUS was also full of twists and turns. It started out as a solo effort by Kabyle musician ARESKI. But little by little, as Areski was filling tapes with poems, improvised skits, electronic experiments, North African trance, refined acoustics and medieval drones BRIGITTE FONATAINE would sneak into the studio at nightfall, adding her voice here and there, her whispers and screams, giving fuel to the fire in a total surreal blaze. The album was originally released in 1977. Now you can get it from KYTHIBONG RECORDS. Anyway Fontaine also collaborated such acts as Stereolab, Jean-Claude Vannier, Gotan Project, Grace Jones or Sonic Youth of course.

On their blistering 7″ debut on 12XU RECORDS, Texan band MISSING PAGES channel the anxiety, exasperation, and jubilation born of those delicate moments in life when the casual comforts and routine are stripped away, forcing us to confront the ugly truth of who we really are.

3 —–

John Schooley‘s project ROCKET 808 is like Suicide adding Link Wray as a third band member. Debut single out now on 12XU RECORDS. Full-length album in early 2019. Anyway his moment in time, Schooley is the only person who can claim to have been a member of the Crypt, Goner, Sympathy For The Record Industry and 12XU rosters.

4 —-

Ground-zero Louisiana-born rocker LINDA GAIL LEWIS is the younger sister and frequent performing partner of Jerry Lee Lewis, whose piano innovations she carries forward. Her present-at-the-creation cred buoys the record while country musicians ROBBIE FULKS – who sings, plays, leads the band, writes most of the songs, and arranges the others – provides an anchoring sensibility, one that savors old sounds but sidesteps nostalgia on the album WILD! WILD! WILD! on BLOOODSHOT RECORDS (US)

5 —–

“TERRY is domesticity. TERRY romances the mundane. This is how romance ekes out a triumph amidst mundanity. That’s what Billy Bragg’s New England and Squeeze’s Up The Junction do. TERRY’s suburban escapism moment is Ciao Goodbye.” You can find it on TERRY’s third album I’M TERRY on UPSET THE RHYTHM RECORDS (UK)

6 —–

Cleveland based gutter pop band FASCINATING perfectly melds its sharp, no-bullshit pop sensibilities with the raw, in-the-red sound indelibly connected to the midwestern underground. Debut album COMMUNIST POWER on DIRTY WATER RECORDS (UK)

7 —–

PINK AIR is the new album from the distinctive and idiosyncratic New York cult band ELYSIAN FIELDS. Their 11th record is a post-apocalyptic rock & roll joyride will be released by OJET in the States and by MICROCULTURES RECORDS in France.

8 —–

Swedish band HATER‘s new album SIESTA is the perfect soundtrack for that summer romance and the inevitable break up.

9 —–

In some respects New Yorker ANAMON‘s self released debut album PURPLE, GREEN & YELLOW is the fruit of what the hardcore underground once promised to deliver us: the self-reliance, moxie, and quick/dirty recording ethic of the Minutemen and the Meat Puppets, coupled with Fleetwood Mac and Blue Oyster Cult’s flair for drama and sprinkled with the goosebumpy starlit twang old Crystal Gayle and Gram Parsons records give us.

10 —–

and that record is insane, Ivy Claudy the Female Singer is just a total wild woman! super crazy live show and she give you everything! and Buddy Fuzz the guitar player plays like a caveman… this is raw end of time punk no wave at its best!!! The SLOKS are a Super Raw Power Ultra Primitive Dirty Suicide Destructive Garage Punk No-Wave Trashed out Rock’n’Roll combo from Turin, Italy and their debut album out now on VOODOO RHYTHM RECORDS (CH)

11 —–

JOSEPHINE FOSTER‘s new album FAITHFUL FAIRY HARMONY is a maze of spirituals, ritual prayers, blues laments, vestal hymns and jubilant benedictions.

12 —–

The 3 entreprenors of French trio THE WORLD stay on their ultra-liberal path with NIGHTS, their second album. Transhumanist synths, lyrics of winners, rhythms tuned to convince investors. Turn any car into an SUV. An ideal album to go with team building weekends, administration boards meetings and redundancy plans. it will release soon on KYTHIBONG RECORDS (F)

13 —–

SUPERHUMAN HAPPINESS is a musical collective led by Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist Stuart Bogie (Arcade Fire, Iron and Wine, Antibalas). While the first album “Hands” has earned a reputation for ass-shaking, euphoric dance music, the new album BEACON takes a darker and more emotional turn. It is performed by musicians from Antibalas, Rubblebucket, Metropolitan Opera, Angelique Kidjo, Elysian Fields, War on Drugs, Darkside and more.

14 —–

Refined R&B grooves and defined jazz harmonies on New Yorker GADADU‘s second album OUTER SONG.

15 —–

If you claim MARIJUANA DEATHSQUADS to be the Midwest’s answer to Boredoms (or at least F*ck B*tt*ns), they probably wouldn’t mind the compliment. Debut album TUFF GUY ELECTRONICS on PIONEER WORKS (US)

16 —–

BOGIE KAUFMAN MANN’s album VOLUME 1 is a record of improvisations that don’t sound like improvisations because “we wanted to feel like it was a group improvisation all the time, so there was never really a lot of soloing going on – there was a lot of trioing going on.” Playing at low volume on guitar, woodwinds, and percussion, set up close to one another in the same room, headphone-free.

17 —–

END OF THE GAME is the anticipated debut full length by EYES OF LOVE, a band helmed by Brooklyn songwriter Andrea Schiavelli. Assembling a crew of some of the most skilled musicians in New York’s underground; Lily Konigsberg (Palberta, Lily and Horn Horse), Sammy Weissberg (The Cradle, Sweet Baby Jesus), Paco Cathcart (The Cradle, Shimmer). These 14 tracks harness the chaos of reckless abandon amid classic structures.

18 —–

New Zealand band ORCHESTRA OF SPHERES‘ double LP MIRROR is an exploration of energies and atmospheres, from intense futuristic funk and sonic tape assemblages to windswept reflections from a far flung corner of the world. It combines the band’s ecstatic rhythmic power and ritualistic vocals with an expanded orchestral palette.

19 —–

The band JOBS is fueled by truly ambitious compositions that seem to defy all logic in the most profound of ways. They’ve always had a knack for producing melodic head-boppers within bouts of joyous experimentation. You can feel this on their new cassette LOG ON FOR THE FREE CHANCE TO LOG ON FOR FREE on RAMP LOCAL RECORDS (US)

20 —–

Globetrotting Swiss-American blues trash duo REVEREND BEAT-MAN & NICOLE IZOBEL GARCIA’s collaborative album BAILE BRUJA MUERTO of course on VOODOO RHYTHM RECORDS (CH)

His brand new album KILONOVA is a collection of 10 cover songs from artists who have influenced him: Dock Boggs, Harlan Howard, Magnetic Fields, Bad Religion, Bill Withers, ZZ Top, Johnny Cash, Red Meat, Jimmy Driftwood and Captain Beefheart.

22 —–

“The foundation for what is on the record comes from long before I had any interest in playing jazz. It is heavily rooted in the grunge, indie, and punk rock that I was listening to in high school. We’d write music, rehearse bands, and play shows all summer long in Baltimore clubs like the Small Intestine, Talking Head, and the old Ottobar. The album CRICKETS is just the sound of those summers as a teenager, but with a decade or two of musical development mixed in” – said composer and bassist ADAM HOPKINS about his album. It is the first release of his label OUT OF YOUR HEAD RECORDS (US)

23 —–

THE CALLAS is the tip of a Greek artistic squad producing music, artworks, films, magazines, events, art shows, initiated by the brothers Lakis & Aris Ionas.

Nowadays they are one of the most in-demand live acts in their native Finland, and select performances abroad have caused a bit of a storm as well. Second album Aidattu tulevaisuus on SVART RECORDS.

26 —–
