Interviews: Karabas Barabas


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Alternative Rock band Karabas Barabas from the USA. 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?

Growing up we were heavily influenced by Russian Cartoons. In America Pinocchio the puppet master that captures and enslaves Pinocchio is called Stromboli, but in the Russian version he is Karabas Barabas.

Additionally, we’ve always been fascinated by the idea of the puppet master pulling the strings.. It is a narrative that has from our perspective been a constant in our realm for the thirty something years we’ve spent on the planet.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We don’t really play any genre unless nonsense is a new genre.. we write a bunch of nonsense, and if it makes us or others feel good then we did something that was worth doing. We hope to expand our genre even further with the fourth album which we’ve just began writing.

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

We were created in a vortex of dark matter so we are actually three extension of one consiusness.

Andrew - The Eurythmics
