Band Those Furious Flames gostije u Zagrebu u Hard Place-u 5. ožujka. Povodom toga smo ih kontaktirali i napravili intervju tako da bi ih približili onima koji nisu upoznati sa njihovim radom. Upad na koncert je slobodan, pa se organizatori i band nadaju da će posjećenost biti više nego dobra.

MJM: Hi, for a start please introduce your band to our readers.

TFF: Hi guys, Those Furious Flames is rock band from the italian part of Switzerland. We started to playing together in 2003. The band is Yari Copt (voice), G.B. (bass), Yann Nick (guitars) and Big Boss (drums).

MJM: Half of year is passing from release of your last album Oniricon. How are you satisfied with fan reaction?

TFF: We are really happy with the fan reaction. Our first single Jane is playing a lot on radio and we have recieved amazing feedback from the online fans and at our shows! We just released our second single Astronomical and we are waiting for the promo to start in more countries worldwide, so it’s still early to have a full overview.

MJM: Who are your role models and where you find inspiration for music?

TFF: We are inspired by the best music of all. Songwriting and sounds from the ’60s and 70’s rock classics. The soul of Pink Floyd, the spirit of Black Sabbath and the groove of Led Zeppelin. Of course then we are also inspired by all the old blues, soul, funky and all the modern underground artist that inspire us everyday.

MJM: What is meaning of your name of band?

TFF: It’s the fire that fuels our passion for music. Those Furious Flames of Rock & Roll.

MJM: For your music is it better to be in U.S. or Europe?TFF-easttour2015-poster1-a4

TFF: USA is a gigantic market where you need to be well prepared and have a lot of money to get in… Europe is really good especially for our kind of band. People are interested in all bands and music not just mainstream or pop. The UK, Germany and Scandinavian coutries are interesting territories and give a lot of possibilities. We also love the east of Europe cause the fans are really pumped for live shows and they are honest.

MJM: You share stage with great bands. Could you point out some of these concerts that is particularly remained in your memory?

TFF: Well there are so many stories.. some we can’t even write about it… eheh. One time we opened for the Misfits on a UK tour, they had the nightliner bus and we were following with our own camper van. Everynight we were cooking some good Swiss or Italian specialties in the camper and one night Dez Cadena knocked at our door. He said he couldn’t just smell delicious food coming from our van and wanted to taste some too. We invited him in and had a crazy nice diner and Swiss wine and had the most surreal talk about Dez’s private life and music. It was magic.

MJM: Do you ever before play in Croatia?

TFF: It’s the first time for us in Croatia! We are looking forward to play in Croatia, we have a lot of Croatian friends and they are all amazing people. We know Croatia will fall in love with our music and we will have amazing shows!

MJM: In Croatia, the second gig is on moto party, do you often play on Moto party’s?

TFF: Moto and custom people dig our music a lot. So yes, we often play some custom shows or MC parties.

MJM: What do you expect on concerts in Croatia?

 

TFF: We are really hoping for a big turnout at the shows. Enough to create a good ambient, positive, dreamy and psychedelic enough to make everyone travel with our music and Oniricon songs. We hope people are interested in our music and want to have a good time.

MJM: And for the end, what would you like to say to people who will come to your concerts?

 

TFF: Go out, have fun, fall in love with the music, dance, support bands like us that have the passion for the music and when you enjoy the show, spread our name to the world!

Hrvatska verzija

MJM: Pozdrav, možete li za početak predstaviti bend.

TFF: Pozdrav ekipa, Those Furious Flames je rock band iz taljanskog dijela Švicarske. Počeli smo svirati 2003, a u bandu su Yari Copt (vokal), G.B. (bas), Yann Nick (gitara) i Big Boss (bubanj).

MJM: Prošlo je pola godine od izdanja vašeg zadnjeg albuma Oniricon. Kako ste zadovoljni reakcijom publike?

TFF: Mi smo zadovoljni. Naš prvi singl Jane se dosta vrti na radijima i dobijamo odlične kritike od online prijatelja i publike po koncertima. Upravo smo izdali drugi singl Astronomical i čekamo da krene promo u više zemalja po svijetu, tako da je još rano za predviđanje.

MJM: Tko su vaši uzori i gdje crpite inspiraciju za glazbu?

TFF: Mi smo inspirirani sa svom dobrom glazbom. Pisanje pjesama i zvuk nam je iz ’60-ih i ’70’-ih. Mi smo kombinacija Pink Floyd-a, Black Sabbath-a i Led Zeppelin-a. Naravno, inspiraciju još crpimo i iz starog bluza, soula, funkya i svih modernih unerground umjetnika koji nas inspiriraju svaki dan.

MJM: Što vam ime benda znači?

TFF: To je vatra koja pali našu strast prema glazbi. Those Furious Flames of Rock & Roll.

MJM: Za vas, da li je bolje biti u SAD ili Europi?THOSE-FURIOUS-FLAMES

TFF: SAD je ogromno tržište gdje trebaš biti vrhunski pripremljen i imati puno novca za ući tamo. Europa je vrlo dobra za našu vrstu banda. Ljudi su zaineresirani za sve bandove, ne samo za mainstream ili pop. UK, Njemačka i Skandinavija su interesantne zemlje i daju dosta mogučnosti. Također volimo i istočnu Europu, jer je publika tamo uživljena u koncerte i iskrena je.

MJM: Dijelili ste binu sa velikim bendovima. Možete li izdvojiti neki koncert koji vam je posebno ostao u sječanju?

TFF: Tu imamo mnogo priča, neke ni ne smijemo pisati hehehe. Bili smo na UK turneji sa Misfits. Oni su imali veliki tour bus, a mi smo ih pratili u kamperu. Svaku večer mi smo nešto švicarsko ili taljansko kuhali i jednu večer je došao Dez Cadena i rekao da je nanjušio nešto dobro, te može li se pridružiti. Naravno da smo ga pozvali i zajedno uživali u hrani i vinu. Tu večer smo doživili stvarno ugodno druženje i razgovor o svemu i svačemu sa Dezom.

MJM: Da li ste prije svirali u Hrvatskoj?

TFF: Ovo nam je prvi put u Hrvatskoj. Radujemo se sviranju u Hrvatskoj. Imamo dosta prijatelja iz Hrvatske i oni su vrhunski ljudi. Znamo da će Hrvatska pasti u ljubav sa našom glazbom i da ćemo imati odličan koncert.

MJM: Drugi koncert u Hrvatskoj svirate na moto partiju. Da li često svirate na moto partijima?

TFF: Ljudi sa takvih mjesta nas vole, tako da dosta često sviramo na custom shows i moto partijima.

MJM: Što očekujete od koncerata u Hrvatskoj?

TFF: Nadamo se velikom odazivu na koncertima. Dovoljno da se može napraviti dobar ambijent. Nadamo se da će biti dosta pozitivne, sanjive i psihodelične energije tako da svatko može putovati sa našom glazbom i pjesmama sa Oniricon albuma.

MJM: I za kraj, želite li što reći ljudima koji će doći na vaš koncert.

TFF: Izađite vani, zabavite se, zaljubite se u glazbu, ples, podržavajte bendove koji kao i mi imaju strast za glazbom. Uživajte u koncertu i širite naše ime po svijetu. Peace.
