This interview/Blindtest was made in Clisson (France) the 24th of june 2006.
Benny, Manu and O.S. have met Rachel (Guitar player).
It's gotta be Shutdown or something haha. I was gonna say it was like some NYHC band but now I know the voice. (Laugh)
There was like a reunion shows with them and Indecision?
we played the Superbowl. Indecision played, they played. It was crazy.
But yeah, it was good ol' Shutdown.
They were like my heroes when I first got into hardcore, and to be able to tour with them was just like I couldn't imagine it could happen.
I don't know this but it reminds me a lot of Ministry.
it? Oh wow! Just the way they edit the quotes I know Ministry does a
lot of stuff like that. I used to love Ministry. Wow that's awesome,
is that new? I haven't bought CD's in so long and I'm missing out on
I was doing so good, I don't know what this is. (Laugh)
It's a cover song
I don't know.
The performing band is German, it's called Heaven Shall Burn, and this song is "Downfall Of Christ"
ok. Ok I see, then I don't feel so bad. Because Merauder was from Brooklyn,
obviously, and when I first started to go to shows there was the scene
at CBGB's, and there were shows at this place called Wetlands and Coney
Island High. And then there was this place called Lamour's in Brooklyn.
Merauder played more at that club and, yeah they played CB's too, but
I always had this thing against Brooklyn when I first started going
to shows. I hated Life of Agony, I hated Type O Negative, I hated all
these bands from Brooklyn because I was like "Fuck that! Fuck Brooklyn!
I only go to CB's" haha. It was stupid, but I never really listened
to Merauder. I think I have one record, but I'm not as familiar with
knew him in a sense that if I saw him at a show, like he had seen me
around for a long time. I don't think he ever remembered exactly who
I was, but he would say hello. I think Justin knew him a little bit
better. I know he went to the wake and stuff, but I didn't really know
him well. So yeah, I always had this weird thing against Brooklyn. But
not anymore obviously haha. It was just back in 1992 1993 I just didn't
like Brooklyn haha. See Justin would have known that easily.
It's Napalm Death!
Shame on me! (Laugh) So it's not New York influenced. What album is it off of?
I have that album but I think it's been way to long since I've listened
to it. Shame on me. I think that's the one album I actually have of
Napalm Death. I first got it in high school and I really liked it, but
I haven't listened to it in a really long time. I apologize for not
knowing my Napalm Death. I guess Shutdown, but I don't guess Napalm
Death. I only have it on vinyl so that's part of the problem. I don't
hear it too often.
This is another thing that sounds really familiar. Something from New York, right?
Yeah! It's a side project!
Is that Icepick or something? Give me another minute. Is that the thing with Sick of It All or something? What's it called Brickhouse?
Ironbound ? Haha. That's what I meant. I haven't heard this yet either. What is it, Pete and Craig? And two friends of theirs?
Give it another minute. I don't know. Haha. I know it's not Danny Diablo. Is it hardcore related? It's from New York? It's not Wu Tang Clan. It's not Biggie Smalls.
Well, It's not a band, it's more of a crew
Who else then?
La Coka Nostra
I don't know them, never heard it.
With House Of Pain members, Ill Bill
I know Ill Bill. "With the money and the drugs, with the D and
the drugs. The T and the thugs, what's wrong with Bill?". (Laugh)
me a minute on this one. Is that Leeway or something? I was never a
Leeway fan. Justin loves them. They're one of his favorite New York
bands. I still got it though! (Laugh) Indecision played a couple of
reunion shows with them in like 1999 or 2000. I don't think anyone was
ready for them to get back together back then, but hopefully now it's
going better. They were all really nice. A.J. was super-nice , but they
were one of those bands I never got into. But I still got it! I recognize
the voice! (Laugh)
is Black Flag. This is one of the first punk videos I ever saw on TV.
Do you have VH1 here or anything? They showed the video for this song
on VH1 one day when I was like in high school. I was like "Holy
shit it's a Black Flag video!" This song is awesome. It's good
I didn't miss that one.
This one's not fair though because it says was everything is in here. The intro says it's Danny Diablo. (Laugh) I haven't heard this. Oh it's a Wu Tang Clan song though, C.R.E.A.M. Oh it's not a cover, but it's a copy of it, it's not a cover. Instead of saying "Cash rules everything around me" he's saying "Drugs rule everything around me." It's a Wu Tang Clan Song. It's not really a cover, they just changed it. Trust me. Actually the singer from The Transplants, Rob, he did merchandise on the AFI tour that Indecision did in 1999. It was us, AFI, Sick of It All, and Hot Water Music. It was probably one of the best tours we did, all the bands were so good. Next thing, I see him in Transplants and I'm like "What?!" Crazy.
I don't know. It sounds it's not Hatebreed. The voice sounded familiar
from Los Angels
Terror? Sounded good though. I see you guys have all these advanced
you! This was gonna drive me crazy. (Laugh) I knew it began with
a D. Haha
No idea. It's got some nice toms and exotic things in there. It sounds like a remix of something
The Shield theme
Shield? I've never watched it. The guys got a really big forehead that's
in it but I can't remember his name. haha
This was fun. I got like half right? (Laugh)
Benny, Manu & O.S.
