Partikul - Q&A
I wouldn't be a musician if my godfather would not have a guitar at home during my summer vacation visits when I was a kid.
Before becoming a musician I was not interesting at all.
My favorite music from childhood is Sonic Youth.
My favorite music from the last few months is Moon Duo, The Soft Moon and Boy Harsher
My favorite artists not related to music are Frida Kahlo, Jean-Luc Godard and Charles Bukowski.
In modern music I like hip-hop culture because it had a punk attitude.
In modern music I dislike auto-tune that became something you can hear everywhere.
What I like the most about live shows is energy and honesty on stage, I don't like artists who are doing too much on stage. Freddie Mercury could act that way, because he was naturally charismatic, but otherwise it's better to stay humble.
Our music has been compared to... "Deftly combining icy minimal analog electronics and poignant guitar magnetism, fueled by cold, mechanical industrialized rhythms, Partiku's dark organic and synthetic sound is both dreary and alienating, sharp and danceable".
If I could make one of the other artists' songs mine it would be "Pink Stream" by Sonic Youth.
In my free time I like to do some booking for the band [laugh].
My favorite quote is...
The star has wept rose-colour in the heart of your ears,
The infinite rolled white from your nape to the small of your back
The sea has broken russet at your vermilion nipples,
And Man bled black at your royal side.
By Arthur Rimbaud.
If I could still do one thing from my childhood in adult life I would still be innocent.
Worst thing about the world today are guns, eating animals and fascism.
Poland reminds me of Joy Division. For the first time I was there ten years ago with my ex-girlfriend, she was from Warsaw, and it reminds me of Joy Division forever. We were like thinking what can we do in August in Poland and we went to Off Festival in Katowice - great experience, nice people and amazing line-up.
