Interviews: Dirty Ol Crow

Share:

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Hard Rock/Punk Rock band Dirty Ol Crow from UK. Check out the interview and this band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that? 

We had a few other ideas until we decided for "Dirty ol' Crow" - Vikki came up with it one day and well, we all agreed immediately. You know - sometimes you just hear something and you know right away this is exactly it. The name itself does not need much explanation. 


2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

Because we just love and live it. Rock n' Roll reflects our life style. 

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed? 

Well, not all of us. Mike, Keltor and Dom came from Germany to form a band. Eventually, they were  joined by Vikki Totten from Latvia and Filippo Monticelli from Italy.

4. Each band member favourite band? 

As we all know it's hard to only have one favourite band, but if we had to choose:

Vikki Totten: Guns n' Roses
Mike: Aerosmith
Fil: Black Label Society
Dom: Lynyrd Skynyrd 
Keltor: Dissection

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?  

The power of music to convey emotions and its effect on people and their lives. We love to share our experience and lifestyle with people through our music. It creates a deep connection between the audience and the band. 

6. Where was your last gig? 

The Lounge 666 in Archway, London supporting our friends from Health Junkies. 

7. Where would you like to play? 

Whiskey a Go Go, LA

8. Who would you like to support? 

Bands such as Black Label Society, Nazareth, Metallica, Kvelertak, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Boehse Onkelz, Slash, Airborne, Kadavar, Steel Panther and many more. 

9. Who not? 

We are open for any new experience.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?  

All of us had stage fright at some point. What we can give as a tip is - Knowing your band members and practicing your set as much as possible. Also warming up before the show helps a lot to give yourself some confidence. Do not try to numb your fear in alcohol or drugs! 

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

That is very difficult to say. We are all influenced by different types of music. Not only Hardrock but many other genres of Metal have influenced us through the years before Dirty ol' Crow. The most of us had different musical projects in the past starting from Blues-Rock via Punk to the darkest corners of Black Metal!

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for? 

We haven't got any weird questions yet. But we can't wait for it to come. 

13. What do you think of your fans? 

We love our dedicated fans and friends. With their help we are able to create a special atmosphere on live shows. Also after the gigs we love to spend time with them and talk and have a good time with them.

14. What do you think of our site?

The design is pretty nice. It's cool that your site represents so many countries and supports a wide variety of young rising bands.

15. Something to add?

We have many things going on right now: Our first single "Sex Dictator" will be released on 14th of September. Furthermore, we started recordings for our first EP which will be released soon.
