Moral Dilemma from UK is one of my favorite bands. I missed them at Punk Illegal when they played there for some years ago, too bad, but I hope I will get another chans sometime. Here is a part of the interview that will be published in Schizo Fanzine #9 which will be out before the end of 2012.
Hello, tell me about your summer 2012, you did a tour with the legendary D.R.I, did you have a good time on the roads?
Yea the D.R.I tour was great, for the most part is was us and D.R.I with metal bands every night due to them being a "cross over" band. We always liked the idea of playing with bands of a different genre, and weren't too sure how a predominantly metal audience would take to our music. But fortunately they where open minded and seemed to really enjoy what we where doing. It was cool to see guys in Manowar t-shirts down the front waving devil horns and head banging, which isn't what we're used too so it was a refreshing change and a lot of fun
Please, write some lines about each member of the band
I'm Craig- I play guitar, I sing, I have an unhealthy obsession with movies, Chloe plays bass and sings, loves yoga, and is doing a phd in english literature. Pasty plays drums and is called Pasty because he is from Cornwall home of the cornish pasty
What is your lyrics about?
Our lyrics tackle things that we feel are important. Generally the things within society that angers us and that we would like to see change. To summarise some of the themes without getting into specifics: Exploitation, struggle, injustice, and our governments roll within international politics etc.
What is you influences, and what characterize your sound?
We all listen to completely different things, when we're touring what comes on the stereo in the van usually sounds like some kind of crazy spastic mix tape, we can go from listening to Tragedy to Motown classics, to Bob Marly to James Brown to the Swinging utters, to Fear and the Circle jerks, to Ike and Tina. We've NEVER made a conscious effort to sound like a particular band.
We don't really categorize our sound, its too difficult to do as our sound can change quite dramatically from song to song we just call ourselves a punk band, I find sub genres to be boring and tedious, and always under scrutiny from someone else's definition.
