Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: Detritus


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Thrash Metal band, Detritus from the UK. 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?

AN: We went through a whole bunch. Think we were nearly called Zephaniah and there were a few others in the mix. Detritus essentially means rubbish, so I guess we just set a low bar and built from there…

MBd: I found the name in an art book, which was also a competition to find words, I asked my dad what Detritus means and thought it was accurate.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

AN: It’s just been a reflection of the music we’ve listened to. In the late 80s and early 90s, we were all into the same stuff (largely Bay-Area Thrash) and it just emerged. The second album probably reflects the fact that our collective tastes were much broader than that, and MYTHS is us just finding our feet again.

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

AN: Mark was at School with Paul. Andy B. started at the same school as me just before we got together and I’d known Mark for quite a few years. Early days was just fun making some noise and the friendships grew from there. We’ve been in & out of touch over the past few decades but only really reconnected a couple of years ago..

4. Each band member favourite band?

MBz: Slayer

AN: Too many and couldn’t pick. In terms of music that has had a long-term influence on how I play; Metallica, U2, Rush, Pink Floyd, Marillion, not your usual metal foundation. More recently its been anything but metal; Jon Hopkins, Nils Frahm, Tools recent album…

MBd: I don’t really listen to much music

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

MBz: God and creation

AN: I think we’re all hard-wired to create – to make things and move the world forward. I feel most alive when I’m in that place of bringing ideas to live, be it music, writing, design.

MBd: I am a massive introvert so it is an outlet that i developed early on, guess its therapy

6. Where was your last gig?

MBz: The thunderbolt Bristol, before the plague descended

7. Where would you like to act?

MB: Everywhere!

AN: Anywhere with a good sound system.

MBd: I like festivals, I have run the welfare at bloodstock for about 15 years so it would be good to play there!

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

MBz: Heavy bands

MBd: Elvis

9. Whom not?

MBz: Happy to play with any bands

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

MBz: Practise and then just enjoy. You can never be perfect so do your best and rock out

AN: Always. I think it comes with the territory. Never liked the idea of performing but love the environment and unpredictability of playing live. Bit of a contradiction, I know, but that’s how it works for me. Definitely practice and preparation and then you just have to embrace it and enjoy…

MBd: I vomited before our first gig, but now I am more comfortable on stage than in normal life.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

MBz: Everyone I've ever heard

AN: See Q4 above.

MBd: anyone who is brave enough to try something new

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

MBz: Signing stuff

MBd: Children and a mortgage

13. What do you think of your fans?

MBz: We love them

MBd: yeah they are both great guys.

14. What do you think of our site?

MBz: Great!

MBd: Lovin it

15. Something add?

MBz: Stay heavy and enjoy your life! Eternity beckons

MBd: Eat your greens and always wear clean undies.
