INTERVIEW – ROTTEN MIND

A Song Which Made You Want To Make Music: Ramones – Oh oh, I Love Her so. Brilliant song writing.

Best Experience While On Tour: Ofcourse when there’s a sick show. I remember playing Munster, Germany the first time, that was amazing.

Cover you would really like to do? We don’t do a lot of covers, but we did Waiting For The Man by the Velvet Underground, so I’ll go with that.

Deepest Lyrics One Of Your Songs Features: Hmm, tough one. “Still Searching” is one of the deepest ones so far.

Easiest Song You Wrote: “I don’t wanna be the one”. Wrote that one in 5 minutes and stole lyrics from another song I wrote before.

Favourite album/single/EP you have released: The next one! “Fading Into Oblivion” will be the shit.

Greatest Show/Festival You Have Played: Uppsala shows are always the best.

Happiest Moment You’ve Experienced In The Band: When a record is out, it’s all done, and you head out on tour.

Interesting Fact About One Of Your Members: We’re not that interesting.

Jokes You Have In The Band: I did a thing where I tried to look like a lion by just open my mouth and everybody freaks out screaming “there’s a lion in the room”. Everybody thinks we’re the most stupid people in the world.

Kicking Off Your Set Is Best With Which Song: We’ve done “Wish You Were Gone” for well over a year now, so I guess it has to be the one.

Longest Distance You’ve Travelled To Play A Show: Oh, it has to be Sydney – Brisbane last year. At least it felt like it took forever.

Movie That Best Represents The Band: Goonies.

New Band You’d Recommend: Svart Katt from Sweden. Sick band.

Opening For This Band Would Be Ideal: Don’t really get the question here.

Place You’d Most Like To Tour: South east Asia, the US, South America etc. Everywhere!

Quote That You’d Like To Pass On To Readers: “A cancelled gig is also a gig” – Ulf Lundell

Reason For The Title Of Your Recent/Forthcoming Release: It just fits well with the lyrics. The lyrics are dark and pessimistic so “Fading Into Oblivion” fits well.

See Us Live At: Every show you can.

The First Song You Ever Played Together As A Band: “Damaged State Of Mind” I think. That was the first song we had.

Unusual Merchandise: Don’t have anything strange now, but I wanna make all kinds of things.

Variations You’d Like To Do On Any Of Your Songs: I guess some songs could be done acoustic, but it’s not something we wanna do at the moment.

Worst Experience On Tour: Haha I can’t really say where and when this was, but we played a few shows a couple of years back in another country and everything around it was completely shit.

Xrays Or Any Other Treatments For Band Related Injuries: We’re good people. We take care of ourselves, so no.

Your Favourite Show You’ve Ever Played: First show we did in Uppsala. Sold out house in our home town with all our friends. A special night for sure.

Zoo Animal That Best Describes The Band: I heard something about an immortal jellyfish, so I’ll go with that.
