Intervju Kukatz - Gruuthaagy
Prijatelji da ste znali samo u kakvom je stanju bio intervju kada sam ga dobio od Bojana. Da li mozete da zamislite ovaj razgovor BEZ RAZMAKA tj “/” znakom izmedju reci. Jako dugo sam ga sredjivao I nisam imao vremena da ga prevodim ali vi cete svakako razumeti o cemu se pricalo. Ima tu gresaka sa engleskim jezikom, u pravopisu, ja vas molim da mi oprostite jer mi sve igra pred ocima... Intervju je inace radjen iz daleke zemlje “Kengurije” a namenjen je bio I stranoj populaciji. Dakle upoznajte Kukatza “Crust manijaka” iz Hrvatske I njegov projekat Gruuthaagy.
Dear Kukatz for the begining please would you do us an honour of introducing Yourself and all of yours noise babies!
I must ask;what is your life's philosophy,or legacy.Is there any particular belif3 sistem you folow,read,study?
Hmmmm, I don't trust not one ideology anymore. I have studied anarchism from my early youth, reading quite a lot of books and stuff, and lately it leaded me to anti authoritarian satanism as well. So I kinda mix those two,
coz in my eyes they are prety much the same. I know that many may disagree, but I don't care. The best school is the life itself, if you dare to think, of course. As you may see from my first few answers I am prety bitter at
things around me, but not becouse of some "philosophy", it's the life that made me such. But I usually don't go around preaching. Actually I hate it now. Only if I am talking to someone realy inteligent and open minded I like to
talk/discuss a lot. Especially if I drink a little, hah ha.
Haw does your love with tha noise affect your day today life?
It keeps me sane, othervise I will just blow everything right to hell, ha. Seriously, noise helps a lot to transform all my negativity and dark side into something creative. If someone gets offended by something that GRUUTHAAGY vomits on the world, maybe he/she deserves that. If someone is looking for safe, predictable, easy entertaining music - than listen to Britney Spears and such. And that's very important part of my life. Opening myself to not so "nice" things.
Couple years ago you start mixing semples and experiment with electronic sounds-what gives?Any
direct influnces?any particular reasons?
No direct influences, I am not cloning anyone. Why sholud I when I have enough ideas of my own. But I may do sort of tribute to some band or style, taking some their ideas into something I do, and result is oftenly quite
insane. It's sarcasm and dark humour that I also use a lot, so no one should take everything by GRUUTHAAGY too seroisly or you may end up going out and killing people on the street, hah. Also, I realy like electronic sounds
but I rarely hear electro music that I realy like, so I thought why not making it myself. Now it seems that some other people likes it, too. I will be lying if I say that I am not satisfied with that.
Once you finish with recording of new material, song ,who do you consult first-whose opinion do you take
Tricky question. For instance I just finished two different demos – TERROR AGENDA and SUICIDE FREQUENCIES. First is sort of industrial grind with lots of guitar sounds and drum beats and second is totaly
abstract droning black ambient without any real instruments. So some may like the first and some may like more the second, it obviously dependes on their testes. Oftenly what one don't like may be very interesting to someone
other listening to it. It's was already a cause with my musick. I like to do different stuff, not limiting myself, so I guess it's best to judge it on my own. Not that I don't care about comments, of course, I may always learn something from it, but my own inner satisfaction with what I do is the most important I think.
There is a bitt of touring you recentlly did,where did you go and who did you play with?Tell us haw did thet
gig went and where is your next stop?
Well, it is not real touring, just some live appereance from time to time. I would like to do it more, but can't afford, I am not rich and this sort of music, well, you know... Last time it was at Igor's CARPE DIEM! Fest at Split, and it was pretty good, as I was in front of people who in biggest number realy didn't know what to expect. Some friends
have told me that audionce was shocked, but that's OK. I have had their attention and that's a lot for one guy alone on the stage.
Who tha fak is thet Igor noise/freak from Split?Do we love him or what?
We fucking adore him, heh he. He realy did a lot for GRUUTHAAGY so far. It's him who made GRUUTHAAGY web site - www.gruuthaagy.tk , and he is helping GRUUTHAAGY for very long time. We are sort of noise
collective, you may say. Even if we live in totally different parts of Croatia and don't see each others very oftenly we are constantly working on many wicked projects, all for the final world domination of pure demonic
NOIZE!!! And that's all you should know about Thee Conspiracy.
I hear that somme 5 way split cd is coming up,Igor(G/S.Karm)wrotte his part could you fill the blanks from your side?
Yeah, it should be second NOIZE INKVIZITION REKORDZ release - 5 OR MORE WAYS TO BECOME A SERIAL KILLER CDr. Here is all the info - Disc contains GIHT SHASIE [croatia], NAPALMED [czech], GRUUTHAAGY [croatia], PAN DEMLA [czech], ELECTROCUTIONERDZ [canada] and bonus track by
KARMAKUMULATOR from Croatia. At first it will released in Canada in 50 copies, cause ELECTROCUTIONERDZ are going to tour and they will use it for promotional purposes and sell it
on the shows [they are doing it for their own label SWIZCORP]. Later this summer it will be released for IGNITE prod from Singapore in edition of 100 copies and in september or before NOIZ INKVIZITION rcds + GOROPADNIK rcds will release 100 pieces for Croatia and Europe. The guy from ELECTROCUTIONERDZ did the cover design and it will be packaged in DVD case. What else can I say - a total fucking blast!!!! GRUUTHAAGY will be there with "Mental Masakr" demo - about 15 minutes of techno grind bestiality
with one sevage GIHT SHASIE cover/remix, too. Cheers to Cupi / GOROPADNIK rcds for joining this insane release.
After all those years of constantlly realising tapes,splits,etc could we finally expect a video of some sorth as well?(well when then damm it?)
Yeah, and again Igor has his fingers in it. It should be done by him and Oleg (ex NO COMMENT), I have good idea how it should look, but give as some time as there's no need to hurry, ok?
Next couple of lines use to present all of your band's(punk &HC too),projects,colebrations for which you sweeted thet blood of yours!
Let's start with mid / late 80's when I was working on CRNI HUMOR zine, first few issues of WARHEAD zine, UDARAC DRITO zine and tapes and tried to form few HC noise punk bands (there was some chaotic gigs by BRATSKA POMOC and BYE BYE BROZ but nothing recorded). Than came T.R.B.U.H., sarcastic tribal noise core with one drummer and 3 vocalists. Later we changed line up few times, had guitars and synths, and was sort of cult band here in Pozega. In middle of the war in Croatia I made SCHMUTZIG zine with some friends, and
at '92 beside GRUUTHAAGY I started FECAL FORCES ZEEN & PROD., plus ANTITUDE - anarcho punk band with fe/male vocals and mostly anti-war lyrics (yeah, during the actual war at here). Later came NONSENSE - sort of crusty grind noise punk trash band. Both bands had some reh. DIY demos and apperead at some international vinyl and tape compilations back than. After all those bands broke up came SENSELESS - hc/crust/grind band
which made quite a name in local and worldwide underground circles with lot's of demo, split, compilation tapes and split 7 '' with S.Z.I. from Slovenia. Yeah, not to forget that I have played in DISLIKE for many years.
It started as raw punk, evoluated to total crust violence, and now they are playing more grind/metal but without me. My next band is FIGHT BACK and it's the only hc/punk band that I am still in. Before some time I was also
singing in BEER SYSTEM. There was couple of more improvised noise-core projects as PNO, THE GRRROLLY
POP, HEQET, etc... FECAL FORCES PROD. released dozens of tapes and last FECAL FORCES ZEEN is issue # 10. I also made many art works for zines, t-shirts, patches, badges, covers, etc... Well, that will be it, in sort.
Tell me something personal about you no one else knows-it will stay just between as 4-500!ok?
Hah ha, can't came with anything. I was sort of hippy before I get into hc/punk which is funny if you know how much I don't like this hippy aspect of todays punk scene... So, now you can bullshit me next time i say -
never trust a hippy, he heh heh.
What do you have in the making for future shock attacks from the noise dark's?
In next few months there should be out GRUUTHAAGY / TOTE STADT split tape at RADIO OBSOLATE RECORDINGS (USA), GRUUTHAAGY / ANAL IS BANAL / FT3C / NECROPLASMIC GUTTERFLIES 4 way split tape at ROKUROTA MAKABE (Lithuania), GRUUTHAAGY / CONSCRIPT split tape at NOISE ATTACK (Phillipines), one full new demo at compilation by TAKUT SENSARA (Indonesia), new GRUUTHAAGY CDr at SMELL THE STENCH (Australia), also new CDr at PROGRESSIVE ATTACK (here
in Pozega, Croatia), etc... and I have some new programs to install so there's definitelly going to be a hell when I get my fingers on them.
Give me quickly your favorite diner recepie!And the perfect music for beckground mood!
Hah, what about chevapi? I am sure you know what it is ; ) . And DISCHARGE "why" in the background, that would be nice dinner.
Alcohol,drugs,scene,young punks-heroine,merrige,old punks;elaborate!(you have 2 minutes)
me - old punk, merriage - me not, alcohol - not like before, drugs - rarely, heroine - better not, scene - yes i guess, young punks - rule.
Where is a good place,city,beach,festival,squat,venue worth checking out in your country.(try to bee less objective then can,haha)
Sorry I am not much of tourist nor traveller, but you can get all at once if you can afford to see summer festivals at Croatia. I am happy if I see at least one of them even if I live in Croatia.
Present some good noise bands from all around ex Yu from 80's till naw,and where could we snach those from?
I remember some 80's noise core like early BLOODY GEORGE (Macedonia), EXTREME SMOKE (Slovenia), ZIVI ZIVOT ZIVOTOM ZIVIH (Bosnia), UDRI'N'RAZBI (Serbia), but there was never much of that around
here. Beside Slovenia - there is bunch on noise projects, they even have Noise Festival in Ljubljana. Hey, I remenber you were in that crazy noise core unit G.O.O. when you was living in Split!!!! Right now,
KARMAKUMULATOR rules the wasteland! And there is MAD SHEPARD in Osijek. The old noise demos from
old first mentioned bands seems to be lost, but I am trying to find some again.
Tell us about some other activities you have been involved in recentlly,only I do not know so couldnot speciffy any better!
I think I wrote it all, there is new FIGHT BACK / ANTI TALENTS split CDr at PROGRESSIVE ATTACK and SENSELESS (our last ever gig) / PRO MASA split CDr at MAMMA rcds, ok?
Whats wrong in tha world bro?Any way we could all do somethig to fix it,or even just try?
If we learn to be ourselves instead of someones brainwashed puppets that will be fucking enough.
Place some of yours liricks and photos,drawings here-I know you love expresionalism and cartoons,so use
those lines wise my old teacher-jedy in the noise universe far far away..(EU that is)
