Swinging axes and grinding words..here's BRMC

J:   How is this record different from the last?

B.R.M.C:  The album’s stepped up a gear a little.  We used the same process as we used to record the last record, so there are similarities in the sound but it’s stripped down much more.  This time it seemed a little easier to get to the destination.  Lyrically, there’s more intent than the last record had.  We were more focused this time round...looking inside for answers that are on the outside.  For us analysis is as dangerous as not looking at all.

J:  Why did you choose to record in East London?

B.R.M.C:  It was cheap, it was there. 

J:  Was recording easy?

B.R.M.C:  The basics were quite easy, but the overdubs took longer.  The songs found their shape on the road...so they were pretty much ready to go. They worked on stage, so there’s no reason to cut them up.

J:  Did the gigs influence the recording?

B.R.M.C:  Yeah...we toured for two years straight, it’s bound to effect you...that’s partially what happened on this album.  It felt like a fight for two years...trying to prove ourselves.  We still wanna try and get the point across.

J:  What happened in the mixing stage?

B.R.M.C:  Most of the blame lies with ‘6 Barelled Shot Gun’, and it know’s that and will be punished.  That one took a long time, and tried mixing it seven times, and had to actually leave it.  We’d go an’ do a different song, and it would take like half a day, then we’d go back to ‘six barrell’ and think we could do it, and it just wouldn’t work so we were like, fuck it, and tore it down again.  It’s the nature of knowing what’s outta control, and what needs to pushed.  It took half the time of the whole process.  We’re pretty happy now though.

J: Favourite track on the album?

B.R.M.C:  Rob – If I had to pick one to send into outer space, I’d pick ‘In Like The Rose’. 

J:  Tell us about the new single?  Did you choose it?

B.R.M.C:  We’re of the opinion...just take what you want.  We love the song, use the whole thing (album), any one of them could be a single.  We want our first impression to be a good one.  We’re happy with our songs, and we have confidence in them.
