Eine neue Reihe des Popblog: Künstler und Bands antworten auf 10 Fragen über die Platten, die ihnen die Welt bedeuten.

Heute die britischen Indiepop-Newcomer Los Campesinos!, die sich auch schon mit unseren „Album des Monats“-Ehren schmücken durften.

Am morgigen Donnerstag sollten Los Campesinos! im Rahmen des City Slang Abends (u.a. mit Architecture In Helsinki, Stars, u.v.m.) im Postbahnhof zu Berlin ihr erstes Deutschlandkonzert spielen, aber die Aufnahmen für das Debütalbum machten dem einen Strich durch die Rechnung. Neuer Termin: 8. November!

– your Top10 Indiepop records?

Songs – John Maus
Knife Play – Xiu Xiu
The Fidelity Wars – Hefner
Oaklandazulasylum – Why?
Bizzaro – The Wedding Present
Dig Yourself – Times New Viking
The Soft And The Hardcore – Tender Forever
Taking The Rough With The Smooch – Huggy Bear
Philophobia – Arab Strap
Twinkle Echo – Casiotone For The Painfully Alone

(for the purpose of this question I have largely ignored the term ‚indiepop‘ and instead just written some records I like that have songs with melodies on them).

– the perfect anthem for Wales?
I’m not Welsh! And I’m not really a fan of national anthems, but when I’ve been in a club in Wales and the lights come on and the DJ plays ‚Motorcycle Emptiness‘ by the Manic Street Preachers, that usually goes down well.

– your favourite protagonist in literature?
Adrian Mole. He was so cute when he was young, such a shame he ended up a Tory.

– your three favourite Punk singles/songs?
Private Buchowski – Kenickie
Dammit – Blink 182
In Accordance To Natural Law – Bikini Kill

– a record that will make you dance?
Silent Shout – The Knife

– your boozed up anthem?
I don’t believe in this. Any music that solely requires being drunk to enjoy isn’t particularly worthwhile in my opinion.

– the last record you bought?
¿Spicchiology? – Xiu Xiu Larsen. And my favourite of the year so far no less

– the worst band around?
I wouldn’t know where to begin.

– a song you wish you’d made yourself?
Come Out 2Nite – Kenickie : this song is the ultimate in teenage abandon and is exactly what any band of 16 year olds should sound like. It also contains God’s own handclaps.

– your favourite record of all time?
Dig Me Out – Sleater-Kinney – equal parts fury and awesome melody. The way that Carrie and Corin’s vocals combine has been beaten by nobody else as far as I can see. This is how guitars should sound, no noodling or boring stuff like that. Just RIFFS!
