In this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Noise Rock band Sounds Against Vultures from France. Check out the interview and follow the 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?

Our band name represents what we are: It has our initials on it and summarize the songs we write, in 3 words. We found it at the beginning of the band in 2010 when we went together in the south west of France.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We didn’t want to play this genre... It was not a choice, it was an evidence because of our influences : Unsane, Sleeppers, Fugazi, Neurosis. 

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

Yes, friends for a lot of time!!! 

4. Each band member favorite band?

Seb: Sonic Youth
Arnaud: Neurosis
Vince: Unsane 

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

The songs we write talk usually about the sickness of our system and the way in which people losing their critical thinking more and more because of the decision makers whoever they are and in all areas.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gigs were in Brighton and Lille. Our first time in England, it was so cool!!! Organized by Halfmeltedbrain, very good persons! In Lille, we share the show with the Belgians of Sonny’s Heels. Good music, nice meeting! Gigs make often human experiences!

7. Where would you like to act?

We haven’t a particular area where we’d like to act. Just play our music and meet people who share our passion... 8. Whom would you like to feature with? We’d like to play with a lot of bands! At first, we think about Unsane, Shellac of course!

9. Whom not?

All bands who make consumption music, just to be successfull, but we’re not likely to play with one of them!

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

Yes! When we began we usually think that the most important thing to have a good show is to make no mistake to be « perfect » but the experience allows to understand that the main thing is simply to be saying : enjoy the moment!!! It’s the only way to give the best of yourself and really profit at the moment!!!

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

The bands who inspired us are exclusively based on the noise-rock scene of the ’90s in the US and France like Unsane, Sleeppers, Fugazi, Portobello Bones, Neurosis, Sonic Youth.

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

Mmh... The weirdest thing we were asked would be certain to play with studded thongs!!! We haven’t still done that… for the moment… 

13. What do you think of your fans?

People who come in our shows have the same approach based on sincerity. It’s an informed public who like alternative music. We don’t lie in these places and that’s what’s good!!!

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s a very cool site with people who love music and believe in what they’re doing!
