This is an interview I made with Rat and Bones to be in our Brazilian Tribute to DISCHARGE Comp. CD
And since in the CD you will see this one only in portuguese language I decided to publish it here in english also
01-So….do you started to play in 1979……what you can say to us now about the differences between these all time ?? What changed to better or worst in all these years?? And what do you feel to have been so influential and inspiration band for years and years ??
Bones: Well back in "79 punk was new, everybody wanted to be a punk because that was all there was or teddyboy or rocker. Now there is too much choice don't think anyone knows what they're into
02-Do you played in Brazil some years ago……what do you can say about Brazilian scene? Bands ? what do you enjoy from here? Etc……and good moments you had in the past tour here??
Rat: Yes DISCHARGE came to Brazil few years ago now 2004 not long after I had joined them on vocals (I joined 2003) I had been to Brazil a few times with my other band THE VARUKERS and was a great opportunity. To come over with DISCHARGE , we played some great shows with great bands like RATOS DE PORÃO,AÇÃO DIRETA,DISCARGE CALIBRE 12 and others ,what do we enjoy from Brazil ,definitely the enthusiasm of the crowd.We hope to return maybe in 2012 so keep watching
03-What you expect from this Brazilian Tribute to DISCHARGE we are doing ? Are 27 Brazilian bands from all eras since the 80´s…….it is not the “first” tribute to DISCHARGE also….by the way for us all here is REALLY a special moment in Brazilian scene….Since DISCHARGE is an inspiration to many Brazilian people in underground scene ; punks and metal since the beguin of 80´s…..
Rat: Looking forward to hearing it, see which bands give DISCHARGE a run for there money ,many thanks to all those involved in it hope it was fun for everyone involved and DISCHARGE are very honoured of the support that they are still recieving ,we will not let you down
04-When DISCHARGE was back in 2000 it was with Cal in vocals…..and recorded an album with him also…..So,Rat joined as a vocalist and some songs was recorded again with Rat on vocals….
What was the reason that Cal left the band ?? By the way,Don´t you think that changing the vocalist can be keep the band many different in music??
Rat: It was Tezz the original drummer and Bones brother that got the idea of getting the band back together and recording a new album ,and eventually going out and playing some of the new songs live , well shortly after the new album was released in 2002, Calvin decided to leave, the other 3 decided they wanted to carry on (I mean they are the original founders) so have every right ,So searched for a new vocalist and on the recommendation of Ian Glasper, a writer for Terroriser magazine, Tezz got in touch with me ,we all met up went through a few songs ,and the rest as they say is history
05-I know that there´s a lot of bootlegs DISCHARGE releases in many different countries….I´d like to talk about one in special…..Is a 7” EP called “LIVE IN PRESTON” I think this is a live gig recorded in 1980(???) with TEZZ and BONES yet…..In this 6 trax record,there´s a song called “WHERE´S OUR FREEDOM” and we never heard this song before in any of official DISCHARGE releases…..
Do you know this record ??? do you remember this song ??? some possibility from you record this song again officially someday??
Rat: I am still trying to hear the track can´t get hold of it anywhere ,might be an idea to revamp it if its any good….
Bones=I haven't heard that bootleg so I can't really say and I can't remember the track you mentioned but now that you told me if it's good we may do it on our next release
NOTE : After this I sent the song in mp3 to Rat and Bones and they returned me completing this answer;
Bones: Yes I heard it ,Is it a song that we changed and used it under another title
06-AND NOW THE END….THE END IS NEAR…IT´S TIME TO SAY…
Rat: HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT YEAR !! YOUR NIGHTMARE CONTINUES ………………..
