Interviews: Cazimi

This is a new interview with the Alternative Rock band Cazimi from the UK. Check out the interview and follow the band at their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

Chanced upon the term and liked the etymology; it derives from an ancient Greek term and means 'in the heart' which very much describes our passion for music. It's used in astrology also but we have no connection with that.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

What genre is it? We use the terms alternative, rock, and indie because it's closest to that, but I always use those terms reluctantly. The music just comes out of me like I'm a conduit for some unknown force; that's not me trying to appear mysterious, it's just a feeling. When I revisit tunes that are waiting in the wings for possible further development I often wonder just how the hell I came up with them. But each time I come up with the basis for a song I usually can hear in my mind how it should develop.

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

Me (Ian) and Jim go back to 11 years old. I've known Kev for about 5 years and Gary just over 2. Kev left the band and rejoined last year.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Ian - early Killing Joke, Magazine, Wire, QOTSA, Stranglers, Mark Lanegan, Led Zeppelin, Erik Satie

Gary - Led Zeppelin, Tool, The Clash

Kev - Manic Street Preachers, Feeder, Rancid

Jim - early Killing Joke, early AC/DC, The Police

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

It's just in my DNA, like a need for food and water

6. Where was your last gig?

Trillians on 11th June with Chaos 8

7. Where would you like to play?


8. Who would you like to support?

Punishment of Luxury - and we are on Saturday 3rd December at the Westgarth, Middlesbrough

9. Who not?

Sorry, I don't understand the question.

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

Of course, most of us, but it wears off the more you gig. Don't ramble between songs and wear an Elvis jumpsuit, that way when your legs start trembling, it looks like part of the act.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

See answer 4

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

My underpants

13. What do you think of your fans?

I love him

14. What do you think of our site?

Slick, well laid out. We'll submit a song for your Spotify playlist when the Signals EP is released
