    ***** Interview with Mozermilk *****

    Q. When did Mozermilk starts, tell us about the history...

    MOZERMILK started about 4 years ago. Our first album combined a higher number of instruments which represented an advantage for it widened the scale of our possibilities but a disadvantage as well because it made it difficult to play the songs on stage whithout having to work with other musicians which was materially difficult for us at the time.

    For our second album we tried to limit ourselves to basic instruments to be able to be free to play the songs quite easily and to focus on other aspects such as visual projections and art performances which are part of our stage live.

    Q: Who are your influences?
    Our influences are very diverse coming from all music syles (indie rock, dub, punk, reggae, rock, cold wave, electro...). However our main influence would be indie rock.

    Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time…
    KEISH :
    1- John Frusciante : "shadows collide with people"
    2- Sonic Youth : "jet set trash and no star"
    3- Beck : "mellow gold"
    4- Neutral milk hotel : "in the aeroplane over the sea
    5- Mano Negra : "patchanka"

    1- The cure : " japanese whispers"
    2- Joy division : "unknow pleasures"
    3- The Smith :"the queen is dead"
    4- Bjork : " vespertine"
    5- Tracy Chapman : "Tracy Chapman"

    Q. How do you fell playing alive?
    We are working on the coming concerts at the moment. Our purpose tends towards creating a performance in which the audience is part of it in one singular shared moment.

    Q. How do you describe Mozermilk sounds?
    I would describe it as being quite atmospheric and experimental. We try with simple guitar to create an harmony combining it with electronic and everyday life sounds. Laguia's voice comes on top of it all as a connecting link.

    Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
    Everything is "home made" in our sounds laboratory which is very handy for we can work whenever the inspiration comes. We start by recording the batteries, then the bass and guitar to finish with the voice.

    Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
    We would particulary recommebd :

    - DUNST!
    - JC SATAN

    Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
    - PIXIES

    Q: What´s the plans for future....
    To create a new album in about one year time, to perform concerts and to come and play in Brazil.

    Q: Any parting words?
    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to express ourselves via this interview. Thanks a lot to all the Bloggers, radios which actively support independant and experimental music.
    We hope you'll come and listen to us one day in live
