Interview: P.P.P Records

P.P.P is a new label from Sweden. Their first release was Spotlicks - Spott, bett & tårar 10". I will review that record soon in the future. I wanted to know more about P.P.P so I sent a few questions, and Pontus sent the answers pretty fast. 

1. Hey Pontus and Paul, the name of your label is P.P.P., I guess that two of the P's comes from your names, but what about the third P? How did you come up with the idea for a label?

Hey Micke! That is correct it is our names, the third P can stand for whatever you want haha. No it stands for Pålle, Pontus, Punk, we didnt have any good ideas for the labelname so we had to settle with that. We have had the idea for a label for some time and often when we drank a few beers we talked about it. So one day we decided to really do it, both of us are recordcollectors so we thought it would be fun to see how it is to actually release a vinyl by ourselfs.

2. Your first release was the Spotlicks 10" Spott, bett & tårar. How many copys did you press? And what do you think about Spotlicks?

We ofcourse like Spotlicks and what they do, otherwise we wouldnt release anything with them. The 10" is pressed in 500 copies.

3. What will your upcomming releases be? Any special bands you dream about to release?

There are some discusions about the next release but nothing is carved in stone so I cant say anything more at the moment. It would be really cool to release something with some favourite band, like Bäddat För Trubbel or Discharge haha

4. I know that Spotlicks are your friends, is it bands like them you will focus on or would you encourage bands to send their demos?

At the moment there is really not any need to send demos but maybe in the future. The next band that we release anything with (if everything goes as planed) are also friends to us, everything goes much smoother when we know tha people in the bands. It is ofcourse fun to help some friends band if we like what they do.

5. Are you just gonna release vinyl, or will it be any CDs in the future?

We will stick to vinyl, both me and Pålle are vinyljunkies and dont really care about cds.

6. Please, introduce yourselfs, have you been in any bands, made any fanzines etc? And please, list your top-3 gigs and records (from your collection)

My name is Pontus, I have played in a few punkbands but nothing really serious, we had fun though! Me and a frined wrote a fanzine called "Tristess Zine" a few years back, we released four numbers and had a great time doing it. Pålle have played in a few bands but its long ago, he played drums in HCHC a hardcore band from Stockholm.

Top 3 gigs and records are always hard but something like this:

Electric Wizard at Nalen, Stockholm a week ago. Probably the best gig I have ever been to.
The first time I saw Asta Kask when they started playing again. They played in Kafe 44, Stockholm and it was total chaos, so good! I think it was 2004 or something like that.
Ättestupa in Stockholm 2009 or something like that, great band and a great atmosphere!

Records, much easier:
Shitlickers - Cracked Cop Skulls 7", the best hc release ever.
Darkthrone - Panzerfaust LP, one album I always return to
Black Sabbath - We sold our soul for rock n roll - double LP, this is what started it all for me, early Black Sabbath is probably the best band in the universe.

And ofcourse Spott, Bett & Tårar! haha

7. Okey, let's finish this... anything you wanna add about P.P.P. Otherwise feel free to write what you want

Thanks for the interview! Good luck with your fanzine/blogg. If anyone want to order the 10" from us drop us a line att ppprecords@hotmail.com or at facebook.com/ppprecords


Schizo Info: Interviews, Podcast

Due to my current mental health situation will the podcast be postponed to next weekend. I hope it will be better soon. But the fucked up bureaucracy with rules of how long you are aloud to be sick listed have put me in a tough situation.

My new doctor (the third in just 1,5 years) has decided that I am much better now, after just 2 meetings, and without to tell me her thoughts did she tell the Social Insurance Office lot's of things so the whole situation became so different from what we had get along.

So I have been suffer of much more apathy and anxiety now, the cause why I got my sick list period extended was just that I was gonna avoid this problem. But this doctor had second thoughts. I don't know what is gonna happen now... But I am glad that I have my wife who supports me more than 100% 

Well, I have updated the [interview section] where you will find links to all interviews I have published on this blog. Some of the interviews are just parts of longer interviews which you will find if you go to the [Read / Download Schizo Fanzine section]

Interview: Buiten Gebruik

Yay, here is an interview with Buiten Gebruik from Holland. This is just a part of the entire interview that you can read in Schizo Fanzine #7. It's my friend Billie who answered my questions. In the fanzine is there also a couple of questions to Billies daughter Darcy.

So, how is it to play with the other lads in Buiten Gebruik. You told me about a new member in the band, who is that guy? You have good experience from other bands, what is the biggest difference between Buiten and your last band Sangre? What have you guys played in before?

it's just big fun with these kids to rock. With Cleverson I have had bands since 2000 and Peter was allready in the last line up from sangre. Only Leon is for us (musical) a new Jack but as a person he is also one we just know as a good friend... The new bandmember you talk about was when we asked Big John from the Exploited to play second guitar. he promised a few times to come a round but he never did. never trust a Hippy! Extra line...John is a cool guy....

The difference between Buiten Gebruik is the line up (new drums, one guitarinstead of 2 and one vocal instead of 2) and the language of the lyrics. With Sangre we sang in English because of the 2 nationalities of the vocalists (Polish and Dutch) but now I'm on my own i wrote all the lyrics in Dutch. And the name is Dutch too....BTW it means Out of Order! The music remains to be some sort of Dbeat!!

What do you prefer to write about? Is there still topics left for you to write about?

Good one, .the topics are indeed so hard to find. I should just sing about war as a Dbeatsinger but I did so far only 2, just because....uhm...uhm....Discharge does it too. Other lyrics deal about the problem that is from all times, that it's so hard to fit in society, that some friends are stupid, religion is a thankfull subject and let's not forget, the upcoming populism in Holland! Not even upcoming....just populism

Just another question about the tour we did earlier this year. Which place did you like most? Was the tour as you had expected from the beginning?

Fuck, which place I like most, I liked it all very much. Amsterdam I was expecting shit but quite some people showed up. Heerlen was typical last minute booked, in St Etienne we were lucky to play on the afterparty of a few days festival and Marseille was so hard to have any audience on a monday but so nice just to hang out there, a fucking weird city, and Liege was as always so fucking nice and drunk. That's why I couldn't hardly breath or talk in Louvain. Fuck the missing audience... it's just so good to see that there are people worldwide standing by to help us out with our stupid bands and give us food and shelter, sharing it all...man we are the happy few

What have you guys played in before?

Let's say, Buiten Gebruik contains members of Sangre, Fleas and Lice, Olho de Gato, Betercore, Boycot, Skint and probably some more...  Matka Teresa, Extreme Noise Error.
